    Salon.com Commenter Calls for Lynching Of Koch Brothers

    Salon.com Commenter Calls for Lynching Of Koch Brothers

    The comments directed at the Koch brothers at left-wing blogs have been among the most vile I have seen anywhere on any topic.

    But this one by frequent Salon.com commenter Marc22309, who has published over 1800 “letters” (what Salon.com calls comments) certainly is among the most vile:

    It’s interesting how not a single other commenter at Salon.com criticised the use of lynching language, and Salon.com has left the comment standing. So much for Salon.com’s enlightened liberal readership.

    For the record, no, I don’t “blame” Think Progress and Lee Fang.

    Oh please, do grow up. You're going to make a big fuss out of one comment on some political website? In the same week that some audience member asked a Republican "who is going to shoot Obama" and the Republican didn't even respond?

    Gag me. Maybe our political discourse would be more civil of both sides didn't constantly focus on what fringe idiots say about things.

    Case in point.

    Hypocrisy, while present across the political spectrum, is epidemic on the Left these days. Where was Nicholas in those crazy first weeks after the Tucson shootings, when everyone on the Left was screaming for civility and an end to words that incited violence, and sifting through the Internets for any example from the fringe they could find?

    And if the Republican had responded in the incident he mentioned, he'd have been pilloried regardless of its content. Silence was a much more articulate response, since it left the attention on the question, not the answer.
