Dana Loesch tweeted the following yesterday:
The article she links to is offensive and idiotic. Sherrod had said that one of her relatives was lynched in the past. The author of the article, former Reaganite Jeffery Lord, called Sherrod's story "false," and attempted to support this assertion by quibbling about the meaning of the word "lynched." He agrees that her relative was beaten to death by an angry group of racists, but somehow thinks that it's only lynching if it involves a noose. First of all, this is an absolutely obnoxious, ridiculous point to quibble about. Her relative was beaten to death by a group of racists! I think that was the relevant part of what Sherrod was trying to convey. Second, Lord, and by the sacred laws of retweeting, Loesch, are also idiotic because in making this completely obnoxious point they also happen to be flat out wrong. As was pointed out by Lord's colleague in the Weekly Standard John Tabin, lynching is defined as, " extrajudicial killing by a mob (which can be as few as two people)." As Tabin writes, and as should be obvious to all, "the fatal beating of Bobby Hall most certainly qualifies."
Furthermore, Tabin's post was up on Monday and has been much discussed online, so if Loesch even had the dimmest awareness of this conversation or the ability to use google, she could have found out that she was about to link to a humiliating article.
