Respect for the Dead-Not So Much

Posted by Adam Graham on May 17, 2007

Many liberals continue to show an amazing lack of respect for the family of Jerry Falwell with vitriolic attacks like these:

The gates of hell swing open and Satan welcomes his beloved son,” a prominent left-wing blogger opined on her website at the news of the death Tuesday of the Rev. Jerry Falwell.

“Guess god [sic] liked the ACLU better after all,” wrote Amanda Marcotte on her blog, in reference to the American Civil Liberties Union, a target of controversial comments Falwell made after the 9/11 terrorist attacks…

Some online critics such as Daily Kos, the largest of the liberal blogs, turned to parody.

It carried a spoof by the “Afterlife News Service” that said “the late Jerry Falwell said today from the afterlife that ‘pagans, abortionists, gays, feminists, lesbians, the ACLU, People for the American Way, Al Gore, Daily Kos and other immoral, liberal groups and individuals bear full responsibility for the heart attack that claimed my earthly life.'”

Of course, it should be note that many more reasonable liberals have been respectful at Falwell’s passing, including Jesse Jackson, and others who knew Falwell in the Green Room.

Yet, there’s a class of bloggers without class and they have big megaphones by virtue of big readerships. Quiet respect for the dead is unheard of, as the war is never ceasing for even the most human moments.

It is this type of vitriol that is slowly tugging at the Democratic Party and if unchecked will tear our nation apart.
