We already know that WorldNetDaily's standards are almost comically low.  But one would think that even by those standards, publicly calling for genocide would go too far.  For those who missed it, literally minutes after the bombings in Boston, WND commentator and Faux News contributor Erik Rush took to Twitter and publicly blamed the attacks on Muslims.  When another Twitter user asked him if he was already blaming Muslims, Rush replied, "Yes, they're evil.  Let's kill them all."  I diaried about it here.  

Rush deleted the tweet after People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch found it, but PFAW managed to get a screen capture here.  However, he's still tripping over himself defending it, claiming that he was just being sarcastic.  It goes without saying that anyone who finds it even remotely okay to joke about killing people has no moral compass whatsoever.

WND editor-in-chief Joseph Farah and managing editor David Kupelian need to be told in no uncertain terms--WND must cut all ties with Rush.  Now.  Crash Farah's inbox at jfarah at wnd dot com and Kupelian's at dkupelian at wnd dot com.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
