Dana Loesch calls out WHIO for citing convicted rapist at anti-gun rally

As Twitchy reported, Gayle Trotter of the Independent Women’s Forum sent progressive heads into a spin today by testifying that “guns make women safer” and “are the great equalizer during a violent confrontation.” That particular form of female empowerment didn’t sit well with onlookers who don’t like the idea of a woman behind the trigger of a “big, scary assault weapon.”

So, if we can’t take a law-abiding attorney’s pro-gun views seriously, whom can we trust? How about a convicted rapist advocating gun control? Dana Loesch and others called out Dayton, Ohio, TV station WHIO for leaving that bit of background information out of a report on protests at a gun show.

Hi @whiotv , do you realize that the organizer of the anti-gun rally you interviewed was ID’d as a convicted rapist? bit.ly/XSzowy

I wonder if @whiotv would have included the interview with this man had they known his record. bit.ly/XSzowy

WHIO responded to Twitter user @DomesticDebacle, saying that yes, the station was aware of the Rev. Jerome McCorry’s “controversial past,” but they were just trying to be fair and balanced.

@dloesch @whiotv responded on their FB page. They were aware of his past and support the rapist’s message. #guncon twitpic.com/bzlkn7

@domesticdebacle @dloesch We did not say we supported his message only that we are aware of his past & that we were reporting both sides.

— WHIOTV (@whiotv) January 30, 2013

WHIO clarified that the station does not support McCorry’s message, which, by the way, is one of peace, nonviolence and community harmony. Leave out the rape bit and that sounds pretty good, actually.

@domesticdebacle Please reread our response. We said McCorry’s message is of community harmony through peace and non-violence.

Why did @abc22fox45 use a convicted rapist as its anti-gun source? bit.ly/Wyd3ar

Why did the @daytondailynews not check that the anti-gun source it cited was a convicted rapist? bit.ly/Wyd3ar

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 30, 2013

The media is seriously going to trot out a convicted rapist to lecture women as to why they shouldn’t be armed? bit.ly/Wyd3ar

@domesticdebacle @dloesch @whiotv Doesn’t it seem to bring motive into question when a violent felon favors gun control for law abiding folk

I don’t buy a story of repentance either when the subject is lying using falsehoods created by people prejudiced towards firearms.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 30, 2013

There was no one else in Ohio to spout off anti-gun nonsense other than a convicted rapist? Seriously? That’s their representative?

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 30, 2013

Oh NO. There is no “War on Women” here: bit.ly/Wyd3ar

Earlier this month, a pollster advised a group of Republican lawmakers to “stop talking about rape” in the wake of comments by (former) Rep. Todd Akin that many on the Left construed as “pro-rape.” So how are we to take the comments of an actual convicted rapist who is protesting against women and others arming themselves against, say, rapists? Loesch and others aren’t taking the advice to just stop talking about rape in this case.

Talking about rape and being a politician = bad. Actually being a rapist and calling for disarmament of people = OK.

Noting @dloesch ‘s story, can you imagine a the press coverage of a #Teaparty type convicted of rape protesting an Abortion clinic?

@dloesch @whiotv as a Daytonian….I am grateful for the coverage and as far as I’m concerned @whiotv lost a loyal viewer!

@whiotv let a convicted rapist on air to talk about his support for gun control. They then tell me how peaceful he is. #waronwomen #rape

— Domestic Debacle (@DomesticDebacle) January 30, 2013

That man’s criminal record is the reason women arm themselves. Perhaps mention that, @abc22fox45 @whiotv @daytondailynews

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) January 30, 2013

@dloesch @abc22fox45 @whiotv @daytondailynews Which is why I AM armed. I am proud to say that I arm myself to protect myself and daughter.
