It would seem that several voices on the left are angry that Tom Flanagan made a joke that the Americans should assassinate Wikileaks folk-hero Julian Assange. I'd like to know how many of those people angry at Flanagan also decried former Liberal Communications Director Scott Reid when he recommended that what Liberals need to do with Stephen Harper is "kill him, kill him dead". How many human rights lawyers threatened to sue Scott Reid? I'm guessing not a lot.
This represents the same left wing hypocrisy that prompts Liberals to compare conservatives to Nazis, but then become outraged when a Tory MP does the same. Do unto others as you demand they not do to you. Isn't that how the saying goes?
