But the weekend beating death of a New York Times reporter in Washington, D.C., has unleashed the mean core of many conservatives. Stripped of the pretense that they're just joking, these conservatives have finally revealed their despicable souls.
David Rosenbaum was 63 and had worked for the Times for more than 30 years. He was beaten from behind on Friday night and robbed of his wallet. He died Sunday night.
Members of Free Republic, a leading conservative forum, were giddy over Rosenbaum's death. Yeah, really. Here's the thread, and here are some fascinating comments to digest:
Feh. He probably paid a co worker to do it not expecting to die so he could have a story in order to play the victim.
The New York Times spends all its time making the rest of us more vulnerable to enemies and criminals, it's only fitting when that karma comes back to bite them. There's little difference between a NY Times employee and a terrorist these days.
The New York Times has been instrumental in defining decency down for two generations...recently it has again embraced treason (history buffs remember those glowing reports on the USSR). Any other common citizen beaten to death by a street thug would be a tragedy...it is only human to think there is an element of blowback when the victim is a liberal reporter for the left's primary organ.
The mugging death of that Slimes presstitute is proof positive that there is a G*D, and than he has a sense of ironic humor.
