HuffPo Commenters Call for Violence Against Rove

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:03 am



Once again, HuffPo commenters call for violence against Administration officials.

I just checked, and the comments in question are still up.

With every such instance, the HuffPo increasingly fits Glenn Greenwald’s criteria for meaningful hate speech.

  1. Any chance of making Arianna Huffington’s home address known to her commenters?

  2. Let’s please not start down that road.

  3. One of the first comments called for him to be hauled out of his car and ‘water-boarded.’ The patriots at HuffPo are so offended by the (alleged) mistreatment of enemy combatants that it blinds them to the fact that Karl Rove is a political operative. A US citizen. Not a terrorist. Not captured on a battlefield. Not shooting at US troops. Not plotting to blow up a bridge or shopping mall.

    Not to mention, we are against the violent Bush crime family, so we wish upon them violence. Irony, hello.

  9. Karl Rove and the Tolerant Left…

    It’s enough to bring a tear to the eyes of progressives across the nation. From NBC:White House Advisor Karl Rove was the target of a protest on the American University campus Tuesday night. …Rove was on the campus to talk…

  10. Not WITHOUT NY BRAN!!

  11. I’m looking at this sorry spectacle, and I am thinking about the impending collage college teacher strike.
    Do they really deserve a raise?
    Hufpo commenters don’t seem to recognize themselves as thugs. They call college republicans, “brownshirts”.
    Makes me wonder if the real 30’s era Nazis recognized what they had become?

  12. QUIT typing collage. I fell my bran districting as we speck.

  16. I don’t see anything wrong with calling for the death of your political enemies, especially a treasonous bunch in this administration. Don’t you think our forefathers wanted to see the King’s head in a basket?

    Of course not, because you’re all so civilised.

  17. “SCREW TIMOTHY LEARY”

    Ha ha ha hahahahahahahahaha…

  18. Actually, I don’t believe they DID call for King George III (was it the third? I so can’t recall). They wanted him to leave…

    I don’t recall a single line in the DoI along the lines of “kek!!!11!! PENIS!!!1!!!111! Gonna Burn KG down, baby!!! Hope he dies of ass-cancer and gets raped!!”

    And if it’s so acceptable to wish for your political enemies deaths, then you’ll certainly forgive my hoping you fall over and die RIGHT F***ING NOW!!

    No? Gee, go figure…

    And no, I don’t want you to die. How will you learn if you die? :)

  19. Don’t you think our forefathers wanted to see the King’s head in a basket?

    Nope. You’re thinking of the French Revolution. The US had one that started with “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…”

    Nothing in that about chopping off anyone’s head.

  20. The comments would be laughable if it were not for the historical facts. I do not recall any violence against Democratic organizations during the 2004 and 2006 election cycles. I do recall seeing on TV incidents of violence committed against Republican people and property.

    Activists in the Democratic Party have been driving this since the 2000 election and the words will turn to extreme violence.

  21. The US had one that started with “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…”

    So you mean no wished death upon the redcoats or their king, and no one got shot in the process? How does this dissolution take place?

    The PC-speak isn’t getting you anywhere.

    Petit Bourgeois (375601)

  22. Great. In Petit Bourgeois’s mind the”Nair-for-men-with-facial-and-gay-houseboy” twittering limpwrists at HuffPo are the equivalent of the Founding Fathers. No, Petit Bourgeois. The HuffPo potty-mouthed sissy-boy types were the ones that got on ships, along with their powdered wigs, pomanders and “personal” slaves, and sailed back to England because their kind had no place in America. How they managed to get back is beyond me. We should have built those fences along the borders a long time ago.

  23. And since you don’t like PC we could even call the HuffPo bunch “Wonkettes”.

  24. […] HuffPo commenters were disappointed that they didn’t get to join in the fun. One comment leapt out at me, however, just for the shear bloody-mindedness of it (via Weasel […]
