OWS: Olbermann Insinuates There Were No Rapes by Real Occupiers

There’s a Twitter “war” between Olbermann, Andrew Breitbart, and Big Journalism’s Dana Loesch over this clip from Countdown with Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas. Here’s the text of Markos’ statement that’s set everyone off

“They [Occupy Wall Street supporters] can be as filthy and they can rape people — if you want to make stuff up —but the fact is nobody really cares about it because that message isn’t about the messenger, it’s not about who’s delivering a message, but it’s about the message itself which really resonates at a very core emotional level with people who are suffering in this economy,” Moulitsas told Olbermann.

“Nobody really cares about” the filth, rapes, and assaults? Disgusting commentary. Olbermann is trying to defend it by saying that the rapes and assaults were not perpetrated by those in the Occupy movement, but by outsiders.

Well, I guess this is the type of analysis you get when your network is owned by Al “Second Chakra” Gore.

Students’ Anti-Gun Views

The Left seems to have a particularly hard time deciding these days. Take, for example, the high-school students from Parkland, ... Read More

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.
