Blaze Editor Jason Howerton Promotes Attack on Sandra Fluke

Blaze Evening Editor Jason Howerton
I had the distinct (ahem) pleasure of speaking with Blaze Evening Editor Jason Howerton about a tweet he sent out earlier tonight attacking Sandra Fluke based on an inaccurate portrayal of her official testimony before Congress concerning the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act. (Here’s the transcript if you’d like a reference as you delve into the conversation.) Note: I left out a lot of extraneous responses and random conservative trolls that insisted on chiming in saying I was “fainting on the couch while clutching my pearls” in response to my calling out the attack.
The Houston Chronicle’s Kathleen McKinley also chimed in on the conversation, but that became a whole separate conversation (that actually remained civil!) about the Constitutionality of the mandate. Feel free to check out her Twitter TL for that conversation.

Without further delay, here’s what conservatives like Howerton think constitutes “comedy”:

  • They are borderline (or past the border) insane.

    Speaking of hateful tweets,

    Yesterday I accidentally (maybe) sent a link to one of my posts (libtard posts I mean) to a Tea Party radical. I honestly don't know how it happened but she sent me a nasty tweet. And then she added "IDIOT ARTICAL!!" with CAPITAL letters (because we all know how caps always adds credibility)

    However she did re-tweet the link. So I just thanked her for the RT and wished her a good day.. I immediately blocked her because I hate the sound of empty heads exploding.
