Politico editor urges readers to attack alt-right guy with baseball bats. National media yawns.
Of course you don't believe that, cuz you didn't read it in the NY Times or WaPo, nor did you see it on what the networks laughably call the evening "news."
A national editor at Politico--Michael Hirsh--published the home addresses of alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer, and urged his readers to take up bats against him.
“Stop whining about Richard B. Spencer, Nazi, and exercise your rights as decent Americans,” Hirsh wrote in a public Facebook post. A reader then asked if Hirsh meant write him a stern letter.
Hirsh responded, “I wasn’t thinking of a f*****g letter, Doug. He lives part of the time next door to me in Arlington. Our grandfathers brought baseball bats to Bund meetings. Want to join me?”
Having just urged violence against Spencer in a public format, Hirsh quickly deleted the post, but not before TheDCNF grabbed a screenshot.
Hirsh resigned, but will undoubtedly be quickly hired by another leftist rag. Urging violence against people who disagree with the Left is rewarded by the Left--every time.
Imagine the howls from the Mainstream media if an editor for a conservative site called for the same sort of violence against the Left!
