It seems the modern American left is becoming more deranged and dangerous with each passing day. On Tuesday, the Daily Caller reported that Politico national editor Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home addresses of alt-right icon Richard Spencer and appearing to advocate extreme violence with baseball bats.
According to the Daily Caller:
National editor at Politico Michael Hirsh resigned after publishing the home addresses of alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer Tuesday morning and advocating for serious violence.
Politico confirmed his resignation following requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Stop whining about Richard B. Spencer, Nazi, and exercise your rights as decent Americans,” Hirsh wrote in a public Facebook post. “Here are his two addresses.”
The Daily Caller posted a screenshot of Hirsh’s post, wisely redacting the addresses:
Jonah Bennett added:
“These posts were clearly outside the bounds of acceptable discourse, and POLITICO editors regard them as a serious lapse of newsroom standards,” Politico Editor-In-Chief John Harris and Editor Carrie Budoff Brown told TheDCNF. “They crossed a line in ways that the publication will not defend, and editors are taking steps to ensure that such a lapse does not occur again.”
While Hirsh’s initial post could have been charitably interpreted to imply advocacy of a non-violent protest outside of Spencer’s home or other similar non-violent actions, a subsequent question and answer clarified Hirsh’s intentions.
Something tells me Hirsh wasn’t talking about playing a friendly game of baseball. And the “Bund” meetings are a reference to the German-American Bund, a Nazi organization in the United States active in the mid-to-late 1930s, Bennett explained.
The Facebook post has since been deleted, but it seems Hirsh made his intent clear.
In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Liberals, sadly, prove that assertion correct on just about any given day. Now it’s getting to the point that they’re overtly advocating murder of those with whom they disagree. It’s enough to make one think they really do want a second bloody civil war over Donald Trump’s historic victory.
