Does Josh Marshall Owe Eric Cantor An Apology For Inciting Violence Against Cantor’s Family?

Of course he doesn't, but this is where Josh's own rhetoric comes back to bite him.

Josh Marshall leveled a ridiculous attack on Eric Cantor the other day saying that, “Cantor’s behavior is shameful beyond imagining” in trying to say the violence and threats of violence against Congressmen is bipartisan.Numerous others on the left took up Josh Marshall’s attacks on Cantor urging Cantor be condemned. Some members of the House, including Alan Grayson, urged Eric Cantor to resign for his press conference.Let’s follow the left’s logic here: the words of the right incited violence against Democrats. Well, their too clever by half arguments are coming back to bite them today. From Josh Marshall’s own website today we learn the United States Attorney in Philadelphia filed “a two-count complaint and warrant . . . charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family, and threatening to kill Congressman Eric Cantor.”So Josh, using your own arguments and logic, shouldn’t you be openly apologizing to Eric Cantor for inciting violence against him and his family?No, of course not. But then neither should the GOP be on defense and apologizing.Laura Ingraham, by the way, points out that the indictee is an Obama donor.
