Never let a tragedy go to waste. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Monday quickly used the explosions in Boston for political gain, linking the Republican Party to the horrific act. At 4:10pm, Kristof tweeted, "explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment."
[SECOND UPDATE: More journalists are politicizing the tragedy. See below.]
Government by Reichstag fire. A lunatic Communist named Van De Lubbe — not the organized Communist party — set that 1934 fire.
The ATF needs to go away.
Nicholas Kristof is an idiot!!!!!
Hey libiots, how about sealing our borders, to protect us from Mohammedan terrorists?
The Nazis themselves set that fire, and used Van der Lubbe as the patsy.
the ny times and the news media want to destroy the GOP.
Nicholas Kristof paid good money, him and others, to organize this one. Newtown was just a hint of what they intend to do.
Sequestration will be blamed too.
BATF needed a director even when they had one ... not some thug butt kissing Eric the Corrupt and Reggie’s boy.
so they will be arresting all the GOP members of congress late tonight then ,they would just love too
His lovely “Arab Spring” bubble has already been busted, but he remains shameless.
What? The New York Times hasn’t gone bankrupt yet? Yikes - it’s taking a long time for the current bunch of editors to destroy that paper...
When is someone with a pair going to throw a libel suit at morons like Kristof?
