Funny, I thought it was conservatives who were supposed to be immoral.
I don't recall any conservative columnists or editors wishing for the murder of a political leader. We've seen variations of this theme over and over this year from the left.
These guys usually are satisfied with pseudo-intellectual dismissal of anyone who disagrees with them, but their loss of power, especially in the U.S., has revealed their true character and commitment to freedom, democracy and humanity. People like Mr. Brooker no longer seem to be the Guardians of anything except vitriol and vile resentment.
I could understand how someone might object to the war in Iraq. I don't agree, but I could respect a principled opposition. But this isn't that. This kind of hatred bespeaks a sense that one's whole ego is threatened. But how could that be, if one is secure in his beliefs. I think the real source of this viciousness is a realization that one's worldview is being revealed as an empty shell.
What is it that would make someone so full of rage as to call for assassination over political differences? Could it be that Brooker is the real fascist?
