As Twitchy reported, Politico’s Roger Simon breathlessly whined about how the Million Vets March brought “racism out of the closet.” Guess he wasn’t quite finished being a colossal jackass just yet:

Good. Lord. The headline is moronic enough, but wait til you get to the article itself.

Wait … he didn’t really say that, did he?

Of course he did:

This must be some of that “new tone” we’ve heard so much about.

He’s a “real journalist”!

We know we’ve played the “what if a conservative had said it?” game before, but seriously. Can you imagine?

But Simon’s got a free pass:

Because joking about conservatives dying is totes hilarious, you guys.

Yep. Hilarious.

      Racist Simon hates Latino conservatives so much he wants them to die!! There’s your blatant racism for you.

  • TocksNedlog

    Is he angling to become a staff writer for Bill Maher?

    • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

      that or speech writer position for 0’Fuhrer.

      Maybe he’s on the bandwagon waiting for for expiration of every leftist in the world hoping for an otherwise unachievable goal of being on The Daily Show staff.

      No, Cher’s personal assistant.

      • Ben Bollman

        He better leave his CAPS LOCK button on permanently then.

        Cher on the Voice tonight. It will NOT be turned to in my house….

      He will be an agricultural commodities columnist at the Wisconsin Farmer soon.

        Nooooo! Do not let him in the state!

  • Stupid Republic

    More of that famous civility and new tone I keep hearing about.

  • RblDiver

    “I’m a peace-loving, kind-hearted leftist. Now go die you evil right-wingers!”

  • CO2 Producer

    Looking forward to Roger Simon’s pamphlet, “Writing Death Wish Screeds for Fun, Profit, and Glory.”

  • pinupartist

    Someone needs to tell this nobody that America IS a sinking ship. His beloved has steered it right into the killer iceberg of “health care” reform. Cruz is trying to repair the hole while l’il stompy is trying to force more of the iceberg through the hull.

    Nothing more than a useful idiot.

  • cfc1905

    Q: If Roger Simon were on a sinking ship, who would be saved?

    A: His family

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Roger– it’s you and me– the bear’s chasing us– you’re not wearing your Oscar Pistorius “blades”– just remember, I don’t need to run FAST– just faster than you.

    Nice knowing you, Roger– harsh, I know.

  • Cindy Munford

    Wow, Mr. Simon is on a roll today. He needs to pace himself, that’s a lot of stupid all at once.

    • Amy

      That ugly little man is three gallons of stupid in a two gallon bucket.

      • MarcusFenix

        The bucket also has a few holes, so it tends to run out of it like raw sewage. But fear not, for Obama is the Savior who can give him infinite free refills.

  • Harlan Hikaru Fox

    This guy is such a jackass that Roger L. Simon from PJ Media should change his name just so he doesn’t get confused with the d-bag from Politico.

  • Texan357

    This is entirely predictable from a member of a cult whose driving force is froth-mouthed, insensate hatred.

  • Mr_Popular

    So using Mr. Simon’s logic: to save healthcare maybe we SHOULD deep six all the sick and the elderly … problem solved!

  • thedumbblonde

    He’s obviously more enlightened than the rest of us hoi polloi.

    So is Roger “Brutus” Simon planning to take part in the festivities? Don’t you know that we as a world culture are evolving? The real Caesars have learned to be backseat drivers to let fools like Obama get slammed with the air bag if their personal gestapo can’t prevent a head on collision. I wish some REAL investigative journalist would identify the puppeteers pulling the strings, reveal their motives and plans. Then you might see a new Bastille Day. Of course my preference would be to see the legal system and constitution work as designed. Then some will be behind bars and some may rightly be sentenced for treason. Feints within feints within feints within feints. It is like trying to come back and win in Monopoly when you own Mediterranean Ave and the other guy owns the rest of the board. Money can buy the best strategists, lawyers, judges, politicians, police, assassins and just about every other tool to help them live in the tower away from the fray. We need a hero to come up with a principal that grabs the hearts of most of their pawns more strongly than money or fear (There will always be some that worship money and their health above all else).

  • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

    I personally expect that people in high places are orchestrating things to bring about some violent clashes. Just another step in the plan of creating useful crisis as a means to their ends. It will give them the opportunity to declare a form of Marshall Law. Of course they will name it something like: The Peace and Protection Act.

    • Amy

      Martial, not Marshall. Martial law.

      /pedant 😉

      • j p✓ʳᵉᶠʳᶦᵉᵈ

        Thanks, I slip back into reflexive association when I get going. I was thinking there was a General Marshall that the law got named after. Have to rereference the term to Mars the god of war.

        • TexSizzle

          Historical aside: the US rank of five-star general is equivalent to the rank of field marshal in other countries. General Marshall was our first five-star general. He was going to be called a field marshal, but he refused to be called Marshal Marshall.

  • LegalizeShemp

    But if they nearly drowned, Simon would want them rushed to a nearby hospital to receive lots of free Obamacare to prove what a compassionate person he is.

  • ELC

    I always say that when one curses and wishes someone else illness or death that its bound to rebound on them. So Mr. Simon…I suggest you not wish anything on the Republicans because you might end up with the same.

  • froggy19510

    Why is it that when people on the right dissagree with someone they try to change their mind but when pople on the left dissagree with someone they want to kill them?
    But the thing that I am really confused about is why prople on the right don’t show up to vote against those on the left who would murder them if they could. Seems to me like voting is a form of selfe defense.

  • rennyangel2

    And where are the civility police when you need them? And that guy with the Cong. flag is prob. a lost OWS’er.

  • WhoDat

    Pardon me while I put my “outrage!!!1!” face on.

    And this GOP shutdown is cutting off food from children.

      Has it stopped on demand abortions?

    • NRPax

      Total dependency on the government is not as big a virtue as you think it is.

    • rivers

      Why don’t you do something about besides b*tching? Do take food to the food pantry at your local Church? Ever drive around with sack lunches for the homeless people in your neighborhood? You have the capacity to make a difference without the govt., you know.

    • mike_in_kosovo

      And this GOP DEMOCRAT shutdown is cutting off food from children.

      Fixed that for you.

        The Reid-Obama shutdown, if you want to be precise.

      Pardon me while I put my “outrage!!!1!” face on.

  • $1014973

    Hey, how do you stop obama, pelosi and reid from drowning? Take our feet off their head.

    Snicker, snicker, snicker.

  • conservativechick

    I did learn from this “Democrat shut down” what makes liberals go crazy now! TED CRUZ! I am more than happy to sing his praises every chance I get, if it helps get a liberal’s undies in a twist! I love Ted Cruz! I wonder if CAIR is the enemy and Gun rights for all, works too? How about, I love Sarah Palin! This is way too easy!

  • Chris Chambers

    Politico used to get linked pretty regularly on, but as Politico’s commentary moved more to the left RealClear has rightly dropped their links. This is the very reason why Fox News gets viewers and MSNBC, CNN and other left fringe stations get skunked.

  • rivers

    Stalin, Mao, plenty of others who believed that the death of their opponents could be justified – welcome – desirable even, if it meant their ideology prevailed. Pretty hilarious when they said it too!

  • Medicinewoman2

    So where’s his family live? He’s a waste of good ammo. Now isn’t this fun & constructive Simon??

  • Kat

    I’m just a bit tired of hearing the left wish death threats to their opponents on a daily basis.

    Hat tip: When your rhetoric makes the Westboro Baptists look like peacemakers, it’s time to pack it in. Keeping this is mind next time I’m told it’s the right that needs to exercise more tolerance and compassion.

  • Nick Olas

    What a compassionate, loving liberal!

  • Mike Simpson

    Is it just me, or does Roger Simon look like David Axelrod’s smarter brother?

  • Herman LaClair

    he’s almost as good a writer as M Dowd.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    What would you call Roger Simon being fired?

    A vast improvement at Politiblow.

  • alanstorm

    But…but…but…I thought it was the evil conseratives thatwere full of hate…

    I’m so confused.

  • Erik Bartlam

    Who are liberals more concerned with seeing dead…babies or their political opponents?

  • Acethepug

    And when Rush Limbaugh used an unflattering word to describe Sandra Fluke — we got a media firestorm. He didn’t even joke about her dying … and yet …

    Ah, Liberals, but for Double Standards, you would have none at all, would you?

    I agree with RB and SunnyRight, does anyone think an article where the names at the start of the “sinking ship” were Obama and Reid would be accepted? Or would there be another Fluke-esque firestorm instead?

    You decide, Gentle Readers!

    Well written, Roger Simon. You are a most experienced partisan shill with nary a hint of intellectual honesty or integrity. You are a True Liberal.

  • Ken Alan Draper

    He got that joke from the humor chapter in mein kampf.

  • Mark81150 USAF SP EST Team

    and if any of us went that far off the rails, we’d get the hammer, because the right polices it’s own.

    The left like POLITICO/asshat Simon?

    high fives and giggles in the editorial offices.. and these scumbags presume to claim they are “moral”?

    Not the way my devout grandmother would view it.. “Never wish ill on others, because it returns ten fold”.. a sweet lady who never hated a day in her long life. A democrat, she sent a birthday card to president Nixon,.. every president.. her kind of decfency died in the democrat party decades ago.. a murder.. they literally let the freakshow run their party, and dare to call Reagan conservatives “extreme”..

    I don’t wish death on any of these Simple Simon’s, just the public shaming of being seen as the despicable beings they are, and the working class retake the dem party before they drag us all over a cliff with them.. All the projection of us being so extreme is just camo to cover it’s the American left that’s gone insane..

    “Remember, ‘Tea-partiers’ are dangerous, so I hope they all die!”
    I suppose the first step in becoming a liberal is deadening your sense of irony (via trepanning, perhaps)?
