Piers Morgan Responds To London Terror Killing By Uninviting Dana Loesch From His Birthday Party
In a concrete demonstration of what happens when insufferable jerkbag meets irredeemable boor, Dana Loesch and Piers Morgan had themselves a big ol' Twitter fight Wednesday, the occasion being Loesch's tweet in response to the decapitation of a British soldier by a pair of terrorists. Dana made a funny joke about why gun control is useless, because really, everything is gun control with these guys (when it's not abortion or Benghazi, of course): "Was the guy with the machete a member of the NRA? Asking for a friend." We totally get her point, because in U.S. Amercia, the radical Muslim terrorist would have been able to use an AR-15 and really do some damage, instead of just having to attack with a machete and a meat cleaver. That was your point, right Dana? In any case, it's good to know that in the face of an 'orrible murder, these asshats managed to make it All About Them.
The good folks at Mediaite have preserved for posterity the following frank exchange of views:
Dana Loesch Was the guy with the machete a member of the NRA? Asking for a friend.
Piers Morgan You think the beheading of a soldier is something to be glib about??? > RT @DLoeschWas the guy with the machete a member of the NRA?
Dana Loesch As opposed to you calling me Nancy Lanza because I stood up for 2A rights? Get real, @piersmorgan.
Piers Morgan No @DLoesch – there is a time to shut up with stupid political wisecracks, and this is one of those times. Show some bloody respect.
Dana Loesch That’s rich coming from you, @piersmorgan . You stood on the graves of children and attacked my family. Get some consistency.
Piers Morgan Can’t stomach @DLoesch goading Brits with her outrageous tweeting re beheaded soldier story. Unfollowed, and banned from my show.
Jesus, you two, get a room!
But that's not all! Loesch announced that she didn't want to go to Morgan's stinky old party anyway!
What's more, Loesch's Twitter profile now reads "Proudly banned from Piers Morgan's TV show." Ooooh, burn!
As for that initial tweet, it turns out that it wasn't about the tragedy of the killer being limited to using sharp instruments, Loesch explained. It was really about the victim not having a gun. Even though she only mentioned the killer, remember? But really, she meant the victim, somehow, because now she says that's totally who she meant:
There are a lot of people who want me to die because I think soldiers should be protected and able to defend themselves.
And yes, Loesch was the subject of death threats and violent fantasies on Twitter, which is totally NOT COOL, PEOPLE. We aren't quite sure what part of her initial tweet was about the soldier, because it looks like none of it, but thanks to the magic of the interwebs, we at least know that a brutal (but apparently limited, because British gun control) act of terror in London is really about the rights of American gun fondlers. Also abortionghazi.
