Last week, prominent far-right fringe voice Dana Loesch has been in a heap of lies, ranging from her rampant Islamophobia by the demonization of Huma Abedin to declaring a CONSERVATIVE Christian caller who criticized Chick-Fil-A's anti-LGBTQ polices a "phony Christian." Also, on ABC's This Week, Loesch lied her ass off to the American people.

TeaNN "contributor" Loesch slams Abedin, even after prominent CNN voices Cooper and Blitzer dismiss Bachmann's lies as loony.

Last week, CNN contributor Dana Loesch claimed a State Department official has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood -- even as her CNN co-workers Wolf Blitzer and Anderson Cooper dismissed such charges as "McCarthy-like."

On her July 19 radio show, Loesch was discussing charges initially brought by Rep. Michele Bachmann, who in June sent a series of letters to federal agencies claiming that "individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood" are influencing State Department policies. Bachmann singled out Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin -- who is also married to former Rep. Anthony Weiner -- and claimed that Abedin's family has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood; she later openly wondered how Abedin "was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance."

Next up is Loesch's berating of a Christian conservative caller who opposed Chick-Fil-A's anti-LGBTQ policies on The Dana Show.

And this past Sunday, St. Louis's leading loon made up more lies on ABC's This Week.

But Loesch nevertheless repeated the claim on This Week, saying, "obviously the CEO is a Christian, people are shocked that he's for traditional marriage? It just doesn't make sense to me."

In her appearance on This Week in February, Loesch hyped an undercover sting of Planned Parenthood that had already been discredited.

Those are just the latest absurd, conspiracy-minded statements from Loesch. What's the purpose of having a person with that sort of track record on what is supposed to be a serious news program?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
