Oliver Willis wigs out over the humorous remarks of a Republican congressman. Rep. Gibbons said that it was “too damn bad we didn’t buy [the hippies and liberals] a ticket” to be human shields in Iraq. The Big O says this “endorses the murder of liberals.”
The congressman’s remarks are certainly edgy, and perhaps he crosses a line when he wishes that we’d helped the human shield hopefuls die. But buying someone a ticket so they can be a voluntary human shield is murder? Try again, Oliver.
Oh, and what does Willis think of the honorable Sen. Byrd comparing Republicans to Nazis? We don’t know. As usual, he only criticizes the opposition’s controversial remarks and doesn’t even attempt to defend a top Donk’s truly reprehensible language.
