n American Canadian journalist who converted to Islam and campaigned against the Islam-focused “war on terrorism” is threatened with death by Taliban captors. Andrew Bolt and Tim Blair both see the irony — and it is ironic — but their commenters see much more than irony.
They see justice being served.
And they see humour.
(Blair’s commenters sure do love those jokes about Muslims shagging animals.)
Some try to moderate their blood-thirsting fellow commenters, but fail.
But the silence from Bolt and Blair is absolutely deafening. Come on, guys — how about a couple of words to let your readers know that you don’t support the view expressed by many of your commenters that this woman deserves to die and should do so?
