Frum plays rape card, defends selective media editing of heckling vid

We’re not sure in what universe it is morally acceptable to characterize your political opponents as equal to rape-apologists, but apparently it’s perfectly fine on Planet Frum.

For those of you not clued in on this line of attack, let us lay it out for you in black and white. David Frum is asserting that, by noting that a Sandy Hook father was not “heckled,” we at Twitchy are morally equivalent to people who say that women in short skirts are “asking for it” when they are raped.

That is a sick, twisted, and morally bankrupt thing to say. Mr. Frum ought to be ashamed of it. We hope he apologizes — not to us, but to all of the rape victims whose pain he just cheapened.

Granted, not much seems to shame David Frum these days. We will, however, note the irony of him defending the media’s selective editing of the “heckling” video, given what he wrote about the Steven Crowder union attack video just last month:

Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised that Frum is willing to stoop to any low to slam his “fellow conservatives” as a bunch of hateful, rape-loving pigs.

    What can one say…..I’m speechless.

    It wasn’t heckling because…..it wasn’t heckling. Look up the definition, moron.
    He asked a question, so, yeah, in that regard, he was asking for it. “It” being the answer.
    Why did he ask the question? He wanted to know why we think we need these types of weapons. He was told succintly, because we can. That’s all anyone needs to know.
    You can disagree with my right to own a weapon, but so long as that right exists, I do nto have to qualify it to anyone.
    Imagine if you went to a liquor store and the clerk make you tell her/him why you needed that booze or you couldn’t have it. What if you went tog et your dirver’s licesne and the government said “Well, expalin to su why you need it and we’ll decide”. Those aren’t even constitutional rights..
    You’re acting like the answer was some sort of punishment, ridicule or, wait, heckling. Moron.

    I’d say he has the intelligence of a flatworm, but that’s insulting to flatworms.

    Every time when I think the left can’t sink any deeper, they bore through another rock layer.

    By the ’16 election, we may hit the Earth’s core.
