Jayne Lyn Stahl Update
Background here and here. Seems she’s getting tons of hate mail. Her email address disappeared from here last night so it’s not you guys. I suspect it’s from the NRA news alert. Some of the hate mail, which she insists on forwarding to me, is appalling. She says she’s received death threats though none of the ones she sent to me were threats but were vile nonetheless. Anyway, I think she gets it.
At the Atlantic, the grotesque image has disappeared and been replaced with an homage to the first amendment. Seems they think we’re advocating congress making it a law that you can’t say stupid shit. As opposed to what we did which was, you know, exercise our first amendment rights to say you said some stupid shit. Equating 4M NRA members with a murderer would upset them? Who knew?
And they state that the image was not from Stahl:
Furthermore, the image was not chosen and created by Stahl but rather the editorial team. Our publication is not USA-based and we reserve the right to print what we want (our laws protect Freedom of Speech as well) whether or not we fully agree with what has been published.
And there’s a screed on guns and hunting that’s not even worth reading because it devolves into hysteria about gulags and kleptocracy. And don’t bother commenting there. I’m told they’re deleting them.
