New York Daily News: Victim of San Bernardino shooting deserved to die for holding conservative views

NYDNscreedIn a foul, disgusting screed published by the New York Daily News on Saturday, Linda Stasi essentially argued that Nicholas Thalasinos, one of the victims in the San Bernardino terror attack, deserved to die for being what she snidely called “a radical Born Again Christian/Messianic Jew, who also connected with his future wife online and had traveled across the country to meet her.”

She wrote:

They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage.

One man spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook about the other’s religion.

The other man quietly stewed and brewed his bigotry, collecting the kind of arsenal that the Facebook poster would have envied.

What they didn’t realize is that except for their different religions they were in many ways similar men who even had the same job.

But it didn’t end there.  The killer, she said, “became half of an Islamic Bonnie & Clyde, while the other died as the male equivalent of Pamela Geller.”

Wait — did she just suggest that Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), deserve to die for opposing Islamic jihad?  It sure sounded that way to Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit.

“He had it coming — And Pamela Geller should die too,” he wrote.

Stasi still wasn’t finished, as she rattled off the “crimes” of the victim.

“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. He asked, ‘IS 1. EVERY POLITICIAN IS BOUGHT AND PAID FOR? 2. EVERY POLITICIAN IS A MORON? 3. EVERY POLITICIAN IS RACIST AGAINST JEWS?’ He also posted screeds like, ‘You can stick your Muslim Million Man march up your asses,’ and how ‘Hashem’ should blow up Iran,” she wrote.

Translation: While the killers were bad, Thalasinos deserved to die for holding opinions she doesn’t like.

This is why I call it the “Democrat-media complex.”
