The NRA's Dana Loesch Says Brett Kavanaugh Has Been the Victim of 'Matriarchal Insane Attacks' by Gillibrand, Harris

National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch struck out at two female U.S. senators for "matriarchal insane attacks" over their abortion rights opposition to Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Supreme Court justice.

The vitriolic right-wing NRA spokesperson chastised Democratic senators Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York on "Fox & Friends" Thursday, labeling the two "hysterical." Loesch said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should abandon the "insane" hearings and move to hold an immediate floor vote confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Loesch railed against Gillibrand's comment that "women are going to die" if Kavanaugh is allowed on the court to dismantle Roe v. Wade.

"This is insane!" Loesch began on the morning Fox News program. "First off, a sitting senator should not be engaging in these matriarchal insane attacks that I actually find inherently sexist. To sit here and say what Ben Sasse, what he said is sexist, as a woman, I'm telling Senator Gillibrand here that this is a hysterical tweet. This whole tone and this whole argument is hysterical."

"They act like it's going to be The Happening 2," she continued. "Remember that movie with Mark Wahlberg and everybody just drops dead… they act like the moment Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed, because he is going to be confirmed, that all women are just going to die in the streets."

Loesch said McConnell could silence protests and Democrats on the Judiciary Committee by scheduling a floor vote. "We want to hear what Kavanaugh has to say, we don't want to hear Kamala Harris talk and try to get B-roll for her 2020 campaign."

Earlier this year, Loesch said that third-wave feminists have created a "toxic" environment against young men and that young women should "stay in their lane" and learn to appreciate men. "I am so tired of this matriarchal witch hunt on young men. There is nothing toxic about masculinity, but there are plenty of toxic things about third-wave feminism and the matriarchy that's attempting to assert authority and also be the ombudsman over all characteristics and definitions of that which are either masculine or feminine."

Loesch was particulary angered by Gillibrand's rebuke to Sasse on Twitter, in which she said it's "not 'hysteria': We're in a fight for our lives. Sexist attacks wont' stop us."

Loesch remarked on Fox News Thursday, "I wish Kristen Gillibrand, I don't know, would maybe not be so hysterical when you're tweeting and have a little bit more respect for your audience and not just devolve the argument to this level."
