“In the wake of the San Bernardino shooting and an overall renewed national conversation about guns, Erick Erickson, editor-in-chief of redstate.com and former CNN political contributer, sent shockwaves through the Internet when he posted a tweet featuring the shot-up front page of Saturday’s New York Times,” as the Boston Globe and other media reported.
“On Saturday, for the first time since 1920, the New York Times ran a front-page editorial, which called for more gun control.
“The text ‘I shot holes in the NY Times editorial – This is what I think of the New York Times edito (sic)’ accompanied the image.
“Posted at 1 p.m., detractors quickly responded to Erickson’s tweet, which ultimately led Erickson to send a reply.
“At 8:30 p.m., Erickson tweeted again, saying ‘Irony is if I’d burned a flag or peed on a picture of Jesus instead of shooting a newspaper, the left would be celebrating me today.’
“Not without supporters, Erickson, who had been retweeting his critics, also shared some of his supporters’ tweets.”
