Dana Loesch's Boss Degrades Women

Dana Loesch's boss Andrew Breitbart is proud of the fact that he called the women of CODEPINK "slutty" because they have different political beliefs:

When Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a slut, Dana Loesch and others justifiably criticized him (though I should note that a number of the claims she made were false, as usual). Here's what Loesch had to say about Schultz:
When I heard Ed Schultz’s remarks, I heard an angry, older man lashing out at a woman because she thinks differently about politics than he....I heard a different level in his voice yesterday though, a new level of rage that removed the humanity from his target so as to make her seem more vulnerable to him. If he stops thinking of her as a mother with children who is also conservative and more like a sexual object that can be degraded, then she’s less of a threat.
If Loesch correctly thinks it is "despicable" for a liberal man to call a woman a "slut" because "she thinks differently about politics than he," then surely she should also criticize Breitbart for calling a group of woman "sluts" for "thinking differently about politics than he." Why does she give Breitbart a pass in his reckless, degrading, and sexualizing behavior? Many, many liberals were willing to criticize Schultz when he stepped across the line. Why won't conservatives criticize Breitbart for literally the exact same behavior?
