The horrific story coming out of Houston – a man named Ron Lee Haskell shot dead five children and one adult – is bad enough. The response of Gawker commentators is worse (but not unusual or unexpected). JE writes: “After climbing onto the soapbox of ‘acceptance’ they demonize people who hold different values…. for being close minded. They go on to call the firearms owning public a variety of ugly generalizations. And they advocate murder. Why are these people salivating at the thought of the government rounding up their enemies? Are they that shortsighted, or just bloodthirsty?” To which the only possible answer is yes. My question: how can Gawker leave these comments up – unless they approve?
