The multiple Muslim attack on Paris on Friday night brought many people to Twitter to tweet their thoughts. I followed the thoughts of David Sirota, who describes himself in Wikipedia as "an American political commentator and radio host based in Denver. He is a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, Democratic political spokesperson, and blogger."
LANGUAGE WARNING: I AM QUOTING A SMUG LIBERAL.
He started with this Tweet:
Reminder: Twitter’s terms of service do not obligate users to be demagogues, provocateurs or assholes during tragic breaking news events.— David Sirota (@davidsirota) November 13, 2015
Nothing quite expresses a call for civility like using the A-word to describe those with whom you disagree. After admonishing us not to politicize, he posted this:
Jeb Bush apparently just cited Paris violence to blame Obama for ending his bro's Iraq War https://t.co/MQ5asPSSC7 pic.twitter.com/PcER3G2lLJ— David Sirota (@davidsirota) November 13, 2015
So after politicizing the event as much as he could, David irota tweeted:
It's a really sad night made even sadder by the ugly reaction of many on this medium right here on Twitter. Goodnight. Log off & go be IRL.— David Sirota (@davidsirota) November 14, 2015
Except a minute later he tweeted again.
Oh, he wins Twitter. Just ask him.
