ProTip: don’t make stupid signs and let your roommate take pictures of them.

(Via Instapundit) Karma… can be a bit of a rough mistress sometimes.  Meet Kim Stafford, Obama voter who thought it’d be entertaining to mock up a somewhat bigoted and offensive sign attacking the Tea Party.  She then allowed it to be photographed.  It then ended up on the Internet.  And then the Online Left started the threats:

…people said awful things. They said she should be raped. They said she should kill herself.


“The party I’m a part of because I’m tolerant and I think that homosexuals should be able to get married – the group of people that I associate with – can be just as cruel as the people I disagree with,” she said.

I don’t know what’s more depressing: that Ms. Stafford hasn’t noticed that in her case the people that she associates with are being rather more cruel to her than the people that she disagrees with, or that the Online Left actually believed that picture in the first place.  Then again, based on my history as a RedState moderator I’ve long since concluded that liberal Internet trolls mostly think that the veracity of a story is in direct correlation to how easy it is for them to viciously masturbate to it.

PS:  “Shame?”  What is this ‘shame’ thing that you speak of?  Because, you know, you shouldn’t make stupid signs and let your roommate take pictures of them. Or, you know, viciously masturbate to the ones that you see online.

    I have sometimes wondered if my side of the aisle is just as vicious and cruel as theirs. Are there right wing trolls wishing rape and death on innocent co-eds? I never see it, but then I wouldn’t, would I?

  • acat says:

    I have wondered the same thing, @countrydoc … but I don’t feel like putting on appropriate body armor and hazmat gear to go looking. You think hat-head is bad!

  • jetty says:

    @countrydoc – I’m afraid so. Stupidity and hatred are not limited to political party affiliation – they can afflict anyone.

    “At first I didn’t know what she was talking about, and I was excited, because who doesn’t want to be Internet famous?” she said.
    If you are actually asking that question with any degree of seriousness, you are Doing It Wrong.

    Any idea which university? There are lots of possibilities (especially if by “university” they really mean “college”). Especially up there, “liberal arts” means very, VERY liberal.

    The only university in western MA that comes to mind immediately is Brandeis, whose English motto is “Truth even unto its innermost parts”. Others schools like Williams are only colleges.

  • asdf says:

    It’s NOT Brandeis. She admits which school she goes to on her Tumblr page if you scroll back far enough. She insists that a friend posted the pic, and one of their friends re-posted it with the fake attribution. I actually believe her, so I won’t repost where she goes.

    Oh, and having scrolled through her Tumblr page, she repeatedly refers to it as a “teabagger costume”. Even as she rails against the intolerance directed against her by her own side, she spits it back onto the people she was mocking in the first place.

    The rest is her insisting that she’s very smart and attractive, which at that age is pretty much all people can talk about anyway.

  • DaveP. says:

    Not really feeling any sympathy here.

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    Brandeis isn’t in Western MA, FWIW. It’s about 10 miles West of Boston…

  • Patrick M says:

    For the Left, the political IS personal, so they make political hatred personal vitriol.

    This is part of the DNA of the New Left. It’s well past time we called it out, skunked it out, named it, and killed it.

    It’s ruining politics.

    Maybe I’ll go see “hating Breitbart” as ‘revenge’ for this vile behavior.
