Glenn links a report of a Mississippi man pleading guilty to posing as white supremacist on Facebook. Dyron L. Hart of Poplarville “admitted creating a name and using a white supremacists’ photo to pose as a white man who planned to kill blacks because Barack Obama had been elected president.”
Since I won’t have much time to scan the left-wing blogs today, could any of you who do let me know if any criticize this Mr. Hart. Or even note the story.
It matters in the current context because it’s another piece of evidence of staged hate rhetoric to show about all the nasty right-wingers out there. Yeah, there are a number of nutcases on our side, but the universe of them is not as vast as lefties might think — or want. It’s why I’m not yet ready to assign blame to an Obama critic for painting a swastika on the sign for Obama supporter Representative David Scott’s Georgia office.
Whoever did paint the Nazi symbol is clearly a crackpot who should be punished for defacement of public property. And condemned for further corrupting public discourse.
