Dana Loesch made it so simple, even a liberal could follow it.
Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties, the two companies engaged in the latest round of Obamacare litigation in the Supreme Court, are fighting a battle that matters to every American, she said – no matter what they believe.
“The government has no business forcing the behavior of individuals who decide to incorporate – period,” Loesch said Friday on The Blaze TV.
In court, Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood are arguing against the power of the federal government to force their religious owners to provide birth control insurance that includes methods the companies’ owner consider abortions, forbidden by their beliefs.
In her six-minute on-air analysis, Loesch argued that the actual facts if the case are less important than its impact.
What is important, she said, is that Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood are actually fighting for the rights of all Americans – pro-life, pro-choice, Christian, atheist or any point on the spectrum – to live their lives in freedom. And what the federal government is trying to usurp, Loesch said, is the power to force Americans to live contrary to their beliefs.
The left might be ascendant in the current administration, she said, but liberals need to understand that the shortsighted surrender of the inherent freedoms guaranteed under the American Constitution is not something that can be undone.
“Progressives are being predictably stupid here,” Loesch said.
“Today, it’s whether people can be Christians to run a business,” Loesch said. “Tomorrow, it could be whether a business owner can be gay or not. Or, whether a business owner can be an atheist. Or a woman.
“When progressives meet a divergent opinion, they want the boot of government to stamp it out,” Loesch said. “This is dangerous.”
Simply put: The boot progressives crave to stamp on their opponents’ necks could next be on their own.

And here are the people she’s talking to …
