There are some people for whom words are not adequate to express the revulsion their actions cause.
Presenting New York Daily News columnist Linda Stasi, whose last name is just coincidentally the same as the nickname formerly applied to the East German police under the Soviet Union.
Stasi just wanted to correct the record in her recent column about the San Bernardino terrorist shootings and point out that, while the terrorists were vile murderers, you really should reserve your hatred for one of the people killed, Nicholas Thalasinos, who “was a radical Born Again Christian/Messianic Jew” as Stasi puts it.
For those unfamiliar with it, Messianic Judaism is a movement that combines Jewish practice with acceptance of Jesus Christ as the Messiah.
Stasi wrote, “Make no mistake, as disgusting and deservedly dead as the hate-filled fanatical Muslim killers were, Thalasinos was also a hate-filled bigot.”
What made him such a monster in Stasi’s view?
“Thalasinos was an anti-government, anti-Islam, pro-NRA, rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood kinda guy, who posted that it would be “Freaking Awesome” if hateful Ann Coulter was named head of Homeland Security,” Stasi wrote.
Gosh, it’s almost enough to make me want to take down my Ann Coulter pinup.
What else you got?
She wrote, “He asked, ‘IS 1. EVERY POLITICIAN IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR? 2. EVERY POLITICIAN IS A MORON? 3. EVERY POLITICIAN IS RACIST AGAINST JEWS?'”
Yes, asking pointed questions of your lame political leaders is a sure sign of extremism … unless you’re a liberal and you’re ripping Republicans, especially George W. Bush. Then you’re “mainstream.”
Continue. She wrote:
“He also posted screeds like, ‘You can stick your Muslim Million Man march up your asses,’ and how ‘Hashem’ should blow up Iran.
“His Facebook page warns that ‘Without HEALTHY PREGNANT WOMAN (Democrats) would have NO SOURCE of BABIES to SACRIFICE and SELL!'”
Perhaps a bit rude (caps lock is tacky), but hardly any more extreme than anything liberals regularly post about conservatives on the Daily Kos or the Huffington Post.
One suspects that Thalasinos’ real sin against Stasi was that he dared to be a religious conservative and have the temerity to talk about his beliefs.
But trying to destroy the reputation of a dead man who did no harm to anyone and obviously can no longer defend himself, well that raises the question of who the real bigot is.
