Yesterday, the always execrable David Frum co-opted the heartbreaking tragedy in Newtown, Conn., in an attempt to ghoulishly score a few cheap laughs. “Obviously, we need to lower the age limit for concealed carry so toddlers can defend themselves,” he tweeted.
But he wasn’t done sloshing around in the blood of 20 murdered children just yet. Punctuating his tweets with the hashtag “#thinking,” Frum is still slinging what he’s deluded himself into believing are ingeniously witty rejoinders to his critics (also known as decent people).
“Last week: teachers’ unions are the enemy. This week: arm unionized teachers with semi-automatics to prevent gun violence. #thinking,” he sneered while trying to score a few political points on the backs of the dead. And then this:
Because, you know, #thinking. Then he dropped the #thinking hashtag. Appropriate, no?
The only response his tweets warrant is disgust. But this about sums Frum up:
Frum also responded to yesterday’s critics on his Daily Beast blog, announcing that no apology was due (feel free to Google for it if you must). Then he lashed out at Twitchy and the hundreds of people disgusted by his callous mockery of the tragedy.
I’ll accept no lectures about “sensitivity” on days of tragedy like today from people who work the other 364 days of the year against any attempt to prevent such tragedies.
No Labels, no lectures, no apologies.
What a despicable little man.
The dishonest anti-gun trolling continues:
Frum, of course, is quite familiar with statistical farces.
And what’s the rape rate down under, hmm?
Oh, for the love of everything ever! Enough already.
