New York Daily News columnist Linda Stasi wants to make it clear: the terrorist attack that took 14 innocent lives in San Bernardino was awful. But she also wants to make it clear that there were really only 13 innocent lives lost and one NRA loving bigoted Jew was killed too. A backlash on Twitter ensued.

“They were two hate-filled, bigoted municipal employees interacting in one department. Now 13 innocent people are dead in unspeakable carnage,” Stasi wrote. (RELATED: NY Daily News Celebrates Murder Of Conservative In San Bernardino Shooting)

Which murder victim isn’t considered “innocent” by Stasi? Nicholas Thalasinos, the Messianic Jew Stasi labels as “a radical Born Again Christian/Messianic Jew” who “spent his free time writing frightening, NRA-loving, hate-filled screeds on Facebook” about Islam.

“Thalasinos was an anti-government, anti-Islam, pro-NRA, rabidly anti-Planned Parenthood kinda guy, who posted that it would be “Freaking Awesome” if hateful Ann Coulter was named head of Homeland Security,” she continued.

The social media reaction was swift.
