Whatever happened to civil debate?


PJMediaLast week, PJ Media contributor and Fox News guest Denise McAllister sent out a powerful tweet denouncing the abortion movement. Little did she know, days later she would be in hiding, scared for her life. When she went public about receiving death and rape threats, pro-abortion Twitter users championed the threats against her.

"At the root of [abortion] hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament," McAllister tweeted. "It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity."

"They are threats outside of Twitter, stating they know where I live," McAllister said. "Threats of rape and strangling. I spoke to the police. I am on home watch."

"My children are very frightened," she added.

On the one hand, threats in general are easy to make online, and usually aren't taken seriously because they aren't made seriously. On the other, it's horrible to be on the receiving end of that sort of thing, and what if you miss someone who really is serious?

Given the rise in politically-motivated violent incidents from left-leaning individuals, I think it's clear that the frantic, inflammatory rhetoric from the Left is inciting real violence.
