CRITICS QUESTION: DID THE KANSAS CITY STAR CONDONE HATE SPEECH AGAINST CONSERVATIVES?!? AGAIN.
A consideration of tough talk that the local newspaper would allow never from another perspective. Here's the push back that questions that nasty and threatening language published by the so-called paper-of-record . . .
TKC READER: KC STAR LOVES HATE SPEECH?
The Kansas City Star Editorial Board is accepting and promoting the views of radical extremists who incite violence against those with whom they disagree! Isn't this HATE SPEECH?
Make no mistake, this editorial guest writer has labeled his opposition as "pathological" and "public health threats" while claiming that 150,000 Kansans are being harmed by these two individuals. And what do you do to a pathogen or a threat that supposedly is keeping 150,000 people from being healthy? You eliminate the threat of course. While the writer is apparently a pre-med student at Kansas State University and should be well-versed in sterile technique, his writing skills resemble that of a sloppy butcher operating amid putrid conditions.
The author has called the two duly elected Kansas state Senators murderers, who have "blood on their hands." It was precisely this type of incendiary language, a call for violence, which some believe led extremists to direct lethal force against abortion providers in Kansas and elsewhere in years past.
By promoting this type of targeted attack, The Kansas City Star is now culpable for any ensuing violence. Once again, The Star has demonstrated their penchant for hyper-partisanship, extreme hypocrisy, preference for divisiveness and rancor, as well as unprofessional journalistic conduct.
