Once again the hate you and folks like Hannity spew has caused another right wing nut to resort to violence. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26181389/ What you do is nothing less than starting a riot and you should be held accountable. You should be in jail. Your hate turns people to murder.

Wonderful, isn’t it? Blame political commentators for politically motivated killings. It’s nothing new of course. It’s tantamount to blaming music or blaming guns, none of which makes any sense outside of a collectivist, leftist worldview. As Malkin says, she is to blame:

For what? For blogging, writing columns, and authoring books with which they disagree.
Such stalwart, principled champions of free speech they are.
