Fascinating blog post which starts out documenting the speed and efficiency with which critical comments about Palin are removed from her page and then chokes on this.
A commenter posted the following at 18:12:
“It’s ok. Christina Taylor Green was probably going to end up a left wing bleeding heart liberal anyway. Hey, as ‘they’ say, what would you do if you had the chance to kill Hitler as a kid? Exactly.”
I think I literally gasped when I read that. Remember, Christina Taylor Green was the 9 year old girl killed by the shooter. Apparently she had been brought there by her mom, who thought she might get a kick out of meeting Rep. Giffords, having recently been elected to her student council.
I assumed, as a matter of course, that this particular comment would be deleted with greatest possible speed.
So I kept hitting refresh, hoping to use this as an example to say, “You see, Palin’s Facebook editing at least has the good judgement to remove clearly offensive content such as this.” But it didn’t come down.
Thanks to Peter Armstrong for the link.
