The Misunderestimation of Michael Weiner

Michael "Savage" Weiner, a wretched, deeply disturbed clod, has promised to publish pictures and "other pertinent information" of members of Media Matters for America. Even if he thinks he's joking, this constituted a deliberately provocative, fearmongering, violence-inspiring speech act, its connection to the Operation Rescue-facilitated murder of George Tiller establishing an undeniable thickness of context.

Thus, we wonder if conservative commentator Bruce Walker will re-evaluate his earlier remarks, in a column for the American Thinker, taking the United Kingdom to task for including Michael "Savage" Weiner on a list of incendiary undesirables earlier this year. In the spirit of fairness, I am about to ask Mr. Walker that very question. I'll keep y'all posted.

Mr. Walker:

I hope this is the correct email for you. I wanted to ask you a question concerning your American Thinker column on the retreat of the left.

In that column, you took the United Kingdom to task for including Michael "Savage" Weiner on a list of undesirables earlier this year. Since the publication of your article, however, Mr. Weiner has threatened to publish pictures and other "pertinent information" of employees at Media Matters for America. ( In the context of the controversy surrounding Operation Rescue's "Tiller Watch" web site and similar questions of recent political violence in the U.S., would you admit that Mr. Weiner's act was provocative? Would you be willing to re-evaluate your earlier comments? Publicly?

Thank you, and I anxiously await your response.
