As we noted below in "Wingnut Violence, Cont'd.", unstable right-wingers are more than willing to use violence against anyone that's been deemed a "progressive," "liberal," "Islamosocialist," "Democommie," [fill-in-the-blank crackpot epithet]. Now one of the targets is pushing back hard.
Drummond Pike, CEO of the Tides Foundation, a favorite bugaboo of demagogue Boo Hoo the Hoot Beck, has written a letter to 10 of Boo Hoo's corporate advertisers asking them to remove their advertising from the Fox "News" Nutwork. This follows the arrest this summer of Byron Williams, an avid listener of Boo Hoo's, who was on his way to San Francisco to kill as many Tides Foundation staff (and ACLUers, if possible) as he could. If there's one passage in Pike's letter that should get the corporate heads' attention it's this:
"No one, left, right or center, wants to see another Oklahoma City... The next 'assassin' may succeed, and if so, there will be blood on many hands."
Boo Hoo has already lost over 100 advertisers because of his incendiary rhetoric. Let's see if this effort causes a few more to drop this dangerous moron.
