American Family Association Radio Host Sandy Rios Defends Assault On “Girly-Man” Reporter [AUDIO]

Kyle Mantyla reports at Right Wing Watch:

On her radio show today, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios dismissed reports that Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte assaulted Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs yesterday, despite audio of the altercation and several eyewitnesses, saying that the entire thing “sounds very grade school playground-y” and lamenting that men no longer just settle things by fighting. “There is a natural anger that comes when someone invades your space and abuses their ability to do what it is they’re doing, they’ve gone across a line,” she continued, again lamenting that “we’ve lost some ability to settle things on our own by having this kind of girly-man response and this litigation and calling the police instead of just settling it.”

As you’ll see below, Rios isn’t the only wingnut defending assaulting journalists.
