SO IF WE FOLLOW BREITBARTNIK DAN RIEHL'S LOGIC...
Here's the latest Breitbart.com non-scoop, from Dan Riehl:
Barack Obama has remained silent as the usual suspects have been busy stirring up hate aimed at George Zimmerman, the Florida Hispanic involved in the shooting death of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin. Now the anger has taken a new twist, breaking out on Twitter with an account named "Kill Zimmerman." It features an image of Zimmerman in crosshairs.
First of all, what the hell does Obama have to do with any of this? Now it's his job to police all the Twitter traffic in America? Or maybe it's his job to police all the Twitter traffic that's sympathetic to African-Americans? Sort of the way every prominent black person is supposed to be responsible for anything stupid or wrong any black person does?
And what's Riehl's ultimate point? That if one idiot starts a Twitter feed urging the killing of someone, that someone is automatically innocent, and everyone who's criticized that person is automatically discredited via guilt by association?
Let's take that to its logical conclusion. If I go to Twitter and search @killobama, I get one tweet (click to enlarge):
And if I click on the @KillObama link in that tweet, I get this (click to enlarge):
"Sorry, that user is suspended," it says.
So someone once started a @KillObama account. Therefore, by Breitbart/Riehl logic, Obama is the best president ever, and everyone who's ever criticized him is discredited, and is a murderer-wannabe by association.
P.S.: Please, Twitter, take the @KillZimmerman account down as well. I'd like him tried and convicted in a court of law. No vigilantism in either direction, thank you.
