Yeah, it kind of surprised me, too, but you can't argue with a good screenshot:
Does that look like a call for murdering leftists to you? It sure looks like it to me. Although I will admit that, when it comes to parsing someone's words, if there's anything I've learned in my years cruising the alleys and crack dens of Canada's right-wing bloggysphere, it's that:
- Anything written by a progressive, regardless of how hyperbolic or humourous, is to be taken absolutely literally, and spun in the most unfavourable way imaginable, to the point where almost any combination of words represents a death threat.
- Anything written by a conservative, no matter how obviously degrading, racist or violent, is to be taken either metaphorically or allegorically, or perhaps just as humour, and if you didn't get the joke, man, just lighten up already.
So perhaps Blogging Tory "Dodo" isn't calling for the violent elimination of all leftists. Who knows? On the other hand, I'm not sure I'd leave her unsupervised with any sharp kitchen utensils and any progressive's children. Know what I'm sayin?
