New York Daily News: Terror Victim as Bad as Killer for Being Pro-NRA

Did I mention that if you still subscribe to the Daily News, you should stop?

I would call for a boycott of the New York Daily News, but that’s redundant since their circulation is already dropping like a rock. Still if you subscribe to the Daily News or buy it once in a while, this is a wake up call to stop.

The failing New York paper hired Post film critic Linda Stasi to write for it. And she’s trying to keep her job by sinking to new lows and then finding even lower lows to sink to. I’m not linking to this crazed harpy’s vile column in which she blames one of the people murdered by Syed Farook and his wife. In the words of the Daily News’ headline, “One of their victims was just as bigoted”

Linda Stasi writes, “They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage”. There were 14 people dead. So Stasi has decided that one of them wasn’t innocent because he supported the NRA and opposed Planned Parenthood.

Did I mention that if you still subscribe to the Daily News, you should stop? Good.

Linda Stasi’s bizarre rant is not only obscene, it’s also completely fact-free. The former film critic claims that one of the victims was writing, “hate-filled screeds on Facebook”. By that she means he supported the NRA (a capital crime at the Daily News which now regularly claims that the NRA is worse than Hitler and is run by the devil) and liked Ann Coulter.

No really. This is Stasi’s example. “Thalasinos was an anti-government, anti-Islam, pro-NRA, rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood kinda guy, who posted that it would be “Freaking Awesome” if hateful Ann Coulter was named head of Homeland Security.”

Yes. This is every bit as bad as killing a bunch of non-Muslims for their religion.

Linda Stasi shrieks “We have freedom of speech but even so, a city worker should refrain from such public bigotry. Municipal workers have been fired for spewing and posting racial and sexual slurs.”

She doesn’t actually list any of the slurs. But this is the Daily News. Be glad Linda Stasi has figured out how to use periods.

More to the point, attacking a dead man for supporting the NRA and suggesting he’s just as bad as his killer, is actual real honest-to-goodness hate.

Attacking a murder victim is low. Attacking a murder victim as being just as bad as his killer for supporting the NRA is a new level of sick even for the Daily News. And the internet isn’t too happy with Linda Stasi’s hate.

You @lindastasi are beyond sick for attacking a person who lost their husband by grotesque Islamic terrorism. Seek help.You should be fired.

@lindastasi @NRA this is disgusting. Blame the victim. Stunned it was published, although the NY Daily News continues to embarrass itself

@lindastasi @NYDailyNews You should be ashamed of yourself. This is just as hateful as the people you condemn.

@lindastasi @NYDailyNews you should be ashamed of yourself. The fact that you likely aren’t speaks volumes. I pity you.

@lindastasi @NYDailyNews Do you apply this same standard to rape victims? Do they deserve it too?
