Big Mouth Strikes Again II

News & Politics
PZ Myers, referring to the WaPo's recent hackjob profile of the angry left:
I don't quite understand this etiquette thing. So Maryscott O'Connor is angry about war and corruption and our incompetent administration, and that's bad. Naughty leftist, she should be better mannered and respectful to our president, no matter how badly he screws up.
Meanwhile, Michelle Malkin sics her mouth-breathing minions on some college-aged peace activists, and they get swamped with death threats from right wingers. And she does it twice, even after learning what kind of sewage her pals are spewing.
Hmmm. Decisions, decisions. Angry denunciations of political actions vs. vicious but infantile threats. Unstinting demands that our leaders do right vs. outrageous extortion. Which side do I want to be on?
I'll pick the door on the left, Bob. Without hesitation.
Carla at Preemptive Karma:
Malkin's inability to muster up even basic scruples here is astounding--especially for a woman of her age. Anyone with even a rudimentary set of life experiences and maturity would know better than to put other people's lives in danger this way…
There's something fundamentally wrong with an individual who would deliberately put the lives of others in danger like this. Some innate screw is in need of tightening.
But then again, that's what karma is for...tightening screws…or putting the screws…to those who deserve them.
