Writing for Right Wing News, conservative blogger Warner Todd Huston notes that Seattle radio host Brooke Fox recently said on Twitter that she’d like to punch out Ann Coulter and a host of others who dare disagree with her (political) views:
On her Twitter feed on February 17, Miss Fox asked the question “Fill in the blank ‘I would be willing to go to jail for the opportunity to punch out ____!'” The next day she answered the question by posting a few names of celebs she apparently wouldn’t mind punching out. That list included Zach Efron, Ann Coulter, Kanye West, Octomom, Kate Gosselin, and John Mayer.
How nice: once again we meet a leftist who dreams of committing violence against conservatives (and others she dislikes).
Can you imagine the outrage from the mainstream media if Fox would have been a conservative instead of a radical progressive? They would’ve fallen all over themselves in an attempt to make this today’s lead story in every major newspaper and on every single network. But because she’s a leftist, they ignore her sick dreams to focus on, well, the latest joke at Governor Sarah Palin’s expense.
As Warner put it rather succinctly:
But our Miss Fox is a left-winger, so she gets a pass. For her the Old Media is silent. Just more of the double standard the Old Media employs.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
