Liberal radio hosts were furious with the Catholic League for mocking Hillary Rosen after she attacked Ann Romney for not working. Their tweet said “Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised 5 of her own.” This was seen by liberals as signaling Rosen’s children adopted with former partner Elizabeth Birch were “less valid, less worthy of respect” and homophobic.
On Friday, Bill Press confused the Catholic League with the nation’s bishops (they are not connected), but on Thursday, rabid atheist Mike Malloy was nudged into erupting about "child-raping" Catholics and their scummy "Nazi pope":
MALLOY: And the Catholic League - that piece of human waste Bill Donohue - then twitted or tweeted or tweaked - 'glad to know Hilary's fans are in a state of apoplexy - you'd think she was outed by their hysterical reaction. Get over it and grow up! You child-raping sons of bitches in the Catholic Church, I am so sick of all of you - especially your priests and your bishops and your scum, the Nazi Pope, I am so sick of all of you. And this Donohue freak -- wow.
He then circled around to attacking Mrs. Romney:
MALLOY: She has never worked a damn day in her life. She has not a clue. When's the last time Ann Romney cleaned a toilet? When's the last time Ann Romney had to catch a bus at four o'clock in the morning and make uh two or three transfers so she could go clean somebody else's goddamn house? When's the last time Ann Romney went to work as, uh, some chump bastard's secretary taking all - excuse me - administrative assistant - taking all the flak, knowing that the job was only as secure as the creep she worked for?
Ann Romney, you're a multi-millionaire you're net worth is almost a half a billion dollars! Don't try to compare or find equivalence between you and working mothers! There is none and you know it! And so does your funky husband! And so does every single disgusting right-wing cockroach in this country who just couldn't wait to come screwing up over the slime and jump on this one! And isn't it nice that the first thing that the fascist Bill Donohue Catholic Nazi goes for is Hilary Rosen's sexual orientation ya filthy pig! Have I mentioned yet tonight how MUCH I hate these right-wingers?
Malloy began by more calmly announcing "I don't know Ann Romney from Adam's house cat - but I would venture, being the multi-multi-multi-multi-millionaire that she is - being in the one percent - way in the one-tenth of one percent - that she has NO idea, NO idea what it's like to work in the public sphere and be a mother!"
For his part Bill Press went after the church as if it were a branch of the Catholic League: "The Catholic Church which is the bishops -- the bishops, certainly part of waging this war on women, they jumped into it and said Hilary Rosen is a not a real mom. Yeah she does have kids she raised her kids, but that doesn’t count because she’s a lesbian. They actually said that, Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League said she’s not a real mom because she’s a lesbian. God, leave it to them to throw their homophobia into the whole thing."
Press was upset that anyone would distance themselves from Hilary Rosen, that truth-teller: "She was attacked for what she said about Ann Romney. She was attacked by the Romney campaign, attacked by the whole GOP hate machine. But, she was also thrown under the bus by President Obama, by the First Lady and by the Chair of the Democratic National Committee. Sam Stein at the Huffington Post yesterday said the Democrats are going to run out of buses to throw Hilary Rosen under, and oh also by David Axelrod. So here’s how oh by the way I have to tell you I’m here to defend her because I think all she (Hilary Rosen) did was tell the truth. She told the truth."
