Fascist: Because the Republican-controlled state legislature passed a bill supporting the market-based charter school concept in Michigan, a Detroit Free Press columnist has called for the murder of those legislators because he disagrees with them.

“We really ought to round up the lawmakers who took money to protect and perpetuate the failing charter-school experiment in Detroit, sew them into burlap sacks with rabid animals, and toss them into the Straits of Mackinac,” wrote Stephen Henderson.

You can read his whole column here. He makes some vague arguments against charter schools, but mostly he rants at the nerve of these Republicans to pass a law he thinks is a mistake. Which of course means he should have the right to assassinate them.

And the left dares to accuse the right of encouraging violence.

    This is what that nut-job at the Detroit Free Press is whining about–

    He leaves out the part about the Detroit School system being in massive debt & running failing schools, for years.

    Unfortunately, this type of thinking is popular on the east side of the State & the 3 Counties making up the Detroit metro area dominate the rest of the State from a population standpoint.
    Fortunately, our Legislature is nominally controlled by Republicans & with a strong Tea-Party faction in-play.

    Didn’t the Detroit School system get taken over by the State of Michigan, because the school system was doing such a poor job of running the schools?

  • Joe

    Yes, Detroit schools were as corrupt as Detroit city government, five decades of democrat control and this journalist wants to demonize republicans.

  • And the left dares to accuse the right of encouraging violence.”

    Yes, psychological projection is how the Left justifies itself.
