And when I say "die," don't think "metaphor."
Shorter Blogging Tory Darcey Jerrom: "Hope you die you bastards, hope you die."
Oh, wait, I'm sorry, that was actually verbatim. My bad.
AFTERSNARK: I will leave it to my readers to imagine the relentless, hysterical shrieking from the Right if a "progressive" had written something similarly hard-hearted and uncompassionate.
Stephen Harper's Blogging Tories: Always happy to lecture you on bloggy etiquette and civility, when they're not hoping that you die.
BY THE WAY, I'd take a screen cap of that post of Darcey's if I were you, since his blog has a tendency to "disappear" embarrassing posts that were produced in the heat of the moment. Remember this? Yeah, I'm sure you do.
And yet, if you follow that link to the original piece over at "Dust My Broom," well, whoops:
Yeah, that's the sort of thing that happens when you think you're being witty and clever, until people point out that, actually, you're kinda promoting beating the living shit out of women.
P.S. If I was a member of Darcey's family, I might keep the number of the local domestic violence shelter on speed dial. I'm just sayin'.
Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor must be so terribly, terribly proud.
