    “Time to grow up”? …… Please, this is a newspaper columnist you're talking about.

    Who cares if she apologizes? Like most of the MSM elitists she believes she is above reproach.
    Any apology she would make would be reluctant, and a complete lie anyway (just like ANY apology made by a journalist).

  • Rick

    Umm I know who Michelle Malkin is….. Now who the hell is this Zerbiasssssssss lololol

  • patooty

    You hope she apologizes? How about you DEMAND she apologizes?

  • http://www.stephentaylor.ca Stephen Taylor

    I suppose I hope for the best in people. Besides, folks like Keith Olbermann looks silly demanding that folks resign every week… though not so much recently…

    Inciting the public to take shots at someone is against the law and a criminal offence, at least in Canada, is it not? That silly woman should be charged for the criminal offence she's committed.

  • JJH

    Not if you’re a journalist. They’re members of the “chosen” class. They are above the silly rules that affect mere mortals. Other members of the “chosen” class are gay politicians, judges. lawyers, female activists, and natives.

    Considering the source, I’m not surprised.

    Disgusted, but not surprised.

    In terms of dumb things…Harper's antics last fall have dearly cost him in Quebec. The latest CROP poll out this am shows the Libs ahead of the Bloc with the Tories sinking like a rock.

    So lets see if I have this right. Liberals are actually being killed by conservatives whipped into a murderous frenzy by rightwing pundits and you’re all silent about that. But one comment from a leftwing pundit is enough to cause you to howl. It’s no wonder that the Republicans have become completely irrelevant and the Conservatives here are soon to follow them into the same void.

  • Liberal

    Oh, boo hoo hoo…

    Michelle Malkin has defended internment, stalks young children and is a serial liar.

    Seriously, you need to develop some perspective.

  • Liz J

    How many times have you had to change your nappy with this exciting news?

    The Liberals ahead of the Bloc is good news for the large minority Conservative government. The Bloc will get to work fixing the Liberals' little red wagon. Only a fool would get excited over a Quebec poll at this time.

    When is Iggy going to pull the plug and who will be lending the hands he needs to do so?

  • Fred

    She should be fired and teh police should investigate and charge her with a Hate Crime.

    She's beyond pathetic, beyond useless.

    She is a waste of oxygen.

  • http://rightfromalberta.blogspot.com Reid

    She won’t appologize. In fact in a later tweet she tries to, lamely, justify what she says. The only way you’ll see anything even remotely resembling an appology is if her RedStar employers force her to. And even then it won’t really be an appology for what she said… but it will be a half a$$ed appology that someone else was offended by what she said.

  • DavidK

    LizJ makes a good point.

    The Liberals rising in QC (and Ontario in you're NDP) just puts the Dippers and Bloc in safe mode. It isn't in their interest to trigger a General Election right now, at least until they see themselves benefiting. They don't want to lose what they gained at Dion's expense and who can blame them? You won't see anything from them (except from the by-elections in BC and QC) for a while.

    And as far as the Quebec poll, are you really that surprised? Iggy's nose is stained brown from trying to make gains there. The NDP could just as well be in the same position, or the Conservatives. Talking the talk in order to please Quebec isn't that hard. I'd say the same if CPC numbers were up in QC. Bending over to appease them isn't my style, and Iggy is right at home in Quebec given his own antics and flip flopping.

    There's a difference between whipping someone up in a frenzy (that in turn becomes murder) and calling for murder.

    My calling for the elimination of the capital gains tax could set you off in a murderous rage though I would not be responsible. If I said that X should shoot Y, yes, the criminal code covers that.

  • http://theconverted.blogspot.com Mike

    So one tongue-in-cheek satirical twitter post from AZ ranks outrage but when Darcy Jeromm, a member of your own blog aggregator writes an entire post about wanting lefties to to die or be killed, not a peep eh?

    Really Stephen, the faux outrage is tired. How about a nice post spinning the wasting of taxpayer dollars by the government on zombie companies like GM and Chrysler? Make sure you mention in whose riding the big GM plant in Osahwa is in….

  • Liberal

    “There’s a difference between whipping someone up in a frenzy (that in turn becomes murder) and calling for murder.”

    Do you understand what a bad faith attack is? It’s an accusation that the accuser himself doesn’t believe.

    That’s what you’re doing. And the rest of are not impressed by this kind of garbage anymore.

  • http://myblahg.com Robert McClelland

    Oops, my mistake. I assumed you didn’t live in a cave and were aware of conservatives like Ann Coulter who don’t just call for the elimination of the capital gains tax but for the elimination of liberals, judges and brown people. Anyway, how is living in that cave working out for you?

  • http://theconverted.blogspot.com Mike

    I’m sorry Stephen, did you not notice Darcy Jerrom calling for the death of lefties the other day? And his wasn’t done in a joking manner about Dick Cheney’s shooting talents either. It was froth-mouthed screed.

    But I supposed it make more sense for you to try to blow this way out of proportion than to deal with things like the CPC government deciding not to collect $89 million during a recession and blowing – yet again – anther military contract. Or how they are bending over backward to give taxpayer money to GM and Chrysler in order to keep them making cars that no one wants, so long as they keep doing it in the Finance Minister’s riding. Maybe avoiding talking about Omar Khadr or Abousfian Abdelrazik, who is being unilaterally kept out of his country of citizenship despite being cleared by CSIS and the RCMP, by our Foreign Affairs Minister.

    Yes, it is far more important to vent your faux moral outrage on a columnist’s tweet-joke.

    Would you still be responsible if one of the people you and your “Rally for Canada” wanks kept calling a traitor was killed by one of your supporter’s last December? Or were you only joking?

    IOKIYAC.

  • Alex Ryking

    I find it highly refreshing to see that right-wing extremists are thin-skinned, no matter what nationality.

    Frankly, I’m surprised Malkin had the spine to go after a grown-up like Antonia; Malkin usually likes to terrorize kids and their families. Do you have the same level of outrage over Malkin’s stalking of Graeme Frost? How about Malkin inciting her followers to making dozens of death threats against a group of college kids and their families because those kids’ politics disagreed with her own? Are you aware of those actions by your sainted Michelle?

    I like the new title of your blog.

    Actually, I think you will find the criminal code will probably more adequately cover the first scenario than it would the second.

    There is such thing as “criminal negligence” which occurs when someone does something that shows wanton or reckless disregard for the lives or safety of other people. Whipping people into a frenzy you know or ought to know will result in them committing violence against an identifiable group could qualify. And of course, there are always the “inciting hatred” provisions.

    On the other hand, in order to qualify this joke as a criminal offence, you would have to prove that the writer actually intended to counsel an offence – which in this case would be impossible to do. In this case, in order to establish criminal liability you must prove both the act and the intention to commit the act.

    In any event, the only real place you would see a conviction in either scenario is on an episode of Law and Order.

  • terry1

    I think changing “depends” is your role in life.

    Iggy is not impatient to get into power as he knows the Harperites are well on their way to self destruction and a majority LIBERAL government beckons. The country will be cleaned up fiscally after that although you will obviously be changing your “depends” even more often.

  • terry1

    David K…RE: Iggys nose stained brown…it looks as though he has got the stain down better than Harper ever did with all his fiscal stupidity in La Belle Province and his daliance with the losers at the ADQ. You must be extremely jealous that Liberals can appeal to Quebecers in numbers that make the Haperites drool. Stupidity always comes back and hits you like a swinging door.

  • Are you for real?

    Are you F-ing kidding? Have you read the blatant racism and incitement on the blogging tories lately?

  • Pat

    It’s true that it’s a dumb thing to suggest in a Nanny State Province like Quebec that cuts to artists, as to everything else during a recession, should be made. The Bloc leaped on it and with the help of a more than willing MSM, they whipped the Quebec voters into a frenzy. So it goes.

  • Omanator

    Keep on dreaming. The latest poll in popularity as of today at the Liberal Convention Harper is way ahead of Iggy. When people were asked who had the better vision of Canada, Harper or Iggy. Harper again won by a substantial margin.

  • Omanator

    I guess that applies to you too.
