And it must start from this blog.
I'm specifically referring to this blog post by the front page gods.
This is getting annoying. A tragedy of historic proportions happens and quickly turns into stupidity from this blog.
First, no front page editor has the right to instruct the president on what to say. And, if some pompous person is going to do that, at least sound grown-up.
The facts of this tragedy are hardly fleshed out; we don't know anything about motive. It is extremely irresponsible to make assumptions at this point.
Secondly, no president can comment about a tragedy by pointing figures at unknown people. To suggest so is stupid.
I have come to accept a lot of knee-jerk hatred of this president by many here. I thought this tragedy was different but reading the comments under Meteor Blade's front page blog it is clear that that is not to be expected.
I am sick of the knee-jerk condescension(which reeks of racism), mocking and insults at the president from supposed liberals on this blog.
