Video: Dana Loesch on the Dems' War on Women at the Chicago Tea Party

Tea Party stalwart Dana Loesch gave a fiery speech at yesterday's Chicago Tax Day Tea Party at Daley Plaza in the city's Loop.

Loesch hosts a daily radio show on KFTK-FM in St. Louis and she is the editor-in-chief of Big Journalism.

Much of her address was centered upon the Democrats' War on Women.

But she first discussed my neighbor to the north--where she spoke two days before. "Wisconsin--I said this in my speech--is the birthplace of the new American Revolution. But Chicago is the birthplace of the American conservative movement, the Tea Party."

Loesch, who is also a CNN commentator, of course was referring to Rick Santelli's 2009 legendary rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Then Loesch got to work. She asks, "What have women received as a result of their supporting the Democrat Party? Just this past couple of weeks--Democrats have launched a War on Women. I love the men in our movement, but I'm going to tell you something, gentleman, about the ladies standing amongst you. They are effective, they are fearless, they are relentless, and they win."

The questioning didn't stop. "What have women received for supporting the left? You've seen it here with your Occupy movements, haven't you? They get raped." While pointing to her Andrew Breitbart T-shirt, she added, "This man on my shirt had a message that I think needs to be reiterated since it keeps happening--'Stop raping people!'"

Which inspired a member of the audience to yell out, "We are all Andrew Breitbart now."

Rapes have been a big problem at the Occupy tent shanty towns.

She ended her speech with a bang. "Women have had enough. We are here to take our country back. You want a war on women? You've got one!"
