Foxs Erickson Responds to Greta with Graphic Abortion Description
Mediaite ^ | January 28, 2014 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 01/28/2014 9:16:49 AM PST by don-o

On Tuesday evening, Fox contributor Erick Erickson responded to Greta Van Susteren‘s blog post calling him a “jerk” with a blog post of his own.

In a RedState post, Erickson gave thanks to Van Susteren for turning the country’s attention to “abortion lover” and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, by way of attacking him.

Van Susteren was incensed by several of Erickson’s tweets referring to Davis as “Abortion Barbie” and using condescending language towards the female lawmaker. “I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with Texas’ Wendy Davis, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is a real jerk and is really lousy at being a spokesperson for his views,” she wrote.

Actually, Greta is usually pretty good. But she’s way off the mark on this one.

Apparently the Abortion Barbie moniker has legs and libs don’t like it.

Her fundraising scampaign letter omitted her abortion fillibuster.

Why ever would she be running away from that issue in Texas?

I have not caught her since they jumbled the time slots; but she was solid on Benghazi when I was hearing her. She is WAY off the rails on this one.

There was a good thread yesterday on the type of rhetoric that we should be using to delineate. Here’s a prime example of how to do it right from Erickson.

So I'm not the only one who notices that about Greta. I thought my flat screen picture was distorted ;) In all fairness, she's generally a very smart woman, but does she still dabble in Scientology?

I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with that jerk Greta, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is a real champion and is eminently qualified to render an opinion on matters of great importance to our society.

This is how we need to start talking. The left thrives when their insidious actions are censored.

She’s not dumb.. calculating? Yes.

even more of an intriguing twist.

Greta, Greta, ye protest too much, on this one.

Ratings may be a factor, in her awful, new time slot. Abortion is a big deal among the FOX audience.

Can’t believe she was so short sighted about the push back, messing with the wrong marine, in Eric Erickson.

Sorry greta but I do NOT have to agree that Erick is a jerk. I think he's spot on and the moniker "Abortion Barbie'" is a perfect fit for that ghoul running in Texas.

If a person who believes that abortion is killing a child (which it is) a person is perfectly proper in using inflammatory language of any kind. No different than stridently speaking out against the Holocaust in the forties.

I love Greta. She’s involved and caring about people yet she never forgets logic. On this one, I don’t agree with her; however, no one is perfect.

The left had no problem calling Sarah Palin “Caribou Barbie”.

So Wendy Davis supporters can pound sand. After all, inserting a catheter into herself to spout off for hours about her love for abortion is what catapulted Davis into the spotlight. And she does look like Barbie. An old Barbie.

I think it is hard to just dabble. I am under the impression she is a full-fledged Scientologist. I consider her fair most of the time, but I guess she is either a womens’ libber or a pro-abortionist who can’t stomach the truth about Wendy Davis.

Interesting. The rabid left wants everyone out of the closet. Everything is in our faces. We are to accept and tolerate. However, when their acts (anal sex, abortion, etc.) are accurately described they become even more rabid. They hurl inaccurate insults such as misogyny and homophobia. Why are they so upset about their actions being described to them?

Erickson should send out a tweet asking Greta how many abortions she’s had because Greta seems to be taking his attacks on Davis a bit too personally.

She’s got a crooked mouth. Most people on TV have crooked noses. Pay attention and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Because these acts are against natural law, lead to destruction and deals with the enemy and they are ugly

Not to mention murderous

i think that Greta was just lobbying for a more appropos nickname for the baby-killing libskank. maybe something like

'Wendy "The Coat-hanger" Davis'

...or...

'Wendy "No Fetus Can Beat Us" Davis'

imho

Could be Greta is doing the Fair & Balanced thing. She stuck up for Palin as “Caribou Barbie”, so maybe she is saying that she also doesn’t like “Abortion Barbie”.

I don’t care about PC or being truthful. Wendy deserves the moniker of “Abortion Barbie” because that is how she climbed into the limelight, by championing abortion. Palin did not deserve the moniker of “Caribou Barbie”.

There are times FOX has no understanding of Fair and Balanced.

That's because they also have 'bad brakes'. They can wash the brown off, but can't straighten out the crumples.

I guess it must, because I don't see calling this woman (who stood up and railed about women's right to an abortion) "Abortion Barbie" as being all that bad. I mean, on the scale of insults, I think it pretty much summed up who she is. So, what's the problem? There has certainly been far worse things said about a woman in politics --- see anything by the msm regarding Sarah Palin.

Forty years of feminist indoctrination. Why is it that we women all have to come to the defense of all other women when men are not obligated to agree with or defend all other men? Our we all supposed to be part of the sisterhood of feminism? I’m not.
