I thought that liberals were concerned about dangerous rhetoric that could incite violence?? I guess they can make an exception now and then.
With Congress debating financial regulation, “this sort of above-the-fray approach has gone by the wayside, at least for Slate.com. On Slate’s Political Gabfest podcast for April 22, moderator John Dickerson asked his panel consisting of Slate editor David Plotz and Slate senior editor Emily Bazelon, if Wall Street banks had a responsibility to self-regulate and do what’s right as opposed to solely relying on legislation to set the boundaries.”
David Plotz replied:
“And we shouldn’t talk to them, try to persuade them,”….we should burn them down. We should go after them with pitchforks, knives, guns, clubs we find, mace – anything, because it’s appalling. You only need to read the story that ProPublica did about the hedge fund Magnetar and what they did or Michael Lewis’ ‘The Big Short’ or these stories about Goldman to realize these guys are corrupt.”
That sounds like a call for violence to me. I bet the “mainstream” media will be all over this when they find out someone is inciting violence!
