Best of the Web Today: Disorder in the Court -

Best of the Web Today: Disorder in the Court - "Wegman's suggestion that Supreme Court justices deserve to receive death threats is especially galling coming from a member of the editorial board that three years ago seized on the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, by a mentally ill man with no recognizable ideological motive, to declare "Republicans and particularly their most virulent supporters in the media responsible for the gale of anger that has produced the vast majority of these threats [against Democratic politicians], setting the nation on edge."

Yet there is a consistency between the Times's scurrilous 2011 editorial and Wegman's 2014 blog post. Both ignore the crucial distinction between lawful political protest or expression on the one hand, and unlawful disruptions or violent threats on the other. It seems the Times is willing to approve of just about any tactic when used by its ideological allies, while demanding that its adversaries simply shut up."
