Quote
The reaction to Myers’ letter has been nothing short of terrifying.

“A lot of them are calling me a whore,” Myers said of anonymous. Amy and her father said the comments from conservative websites alarmed them most. Some commenters threatened to publish her home address. Others threatened violence. Some threatened rape.

Because she criticized the Tea Party goddess.

“They’re targeting me just because I’m challenging Bachmann,” Amy said.

It doesn’t matter that Bachmann won’t debate her. Nor are the facts pointed to by Myers important. It doesn’t matter that Bachmann, the Tea Party’s alleged constitutional expert is wrong about the constitution and that a 16-year-old high school student is right. What matters is that you can’t criticize the Tea Party.

Creepy! These people have never heard of the moral high ground, apparently, and if they have they seem to have an aversion to standing on it.

Judging from what I regularly read on far right blogs I'm not particularly surprised by this.
In my none-expert opinion she doesn't really have anything to fear from assholes on the Internet (and this is going to sound very cynical) for the simple fact she's white and probably non-Muslim.
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.
Justice moved my maker on high.
Divine power made me, Wisdom supreme, and Primal love.
Before me nothing was but things eternal, and eternal I endure.

And to attack her, rightwing bloggers would have to leave their basements or, when they do, soup up their Rascals so they can speed up to catch a 16 year old girl.

Over at CG, there's at least one loony tune saying that she deserves it.   :lulz:

I'd love to hear what Bachmann has to say regarding her followers saying these things.  I really would.

Can anybody find the article in question on cnn.com? I'd like to take a peek at the comments. I suspect they're not that startling relative to other vitriol in the blogosphere. I do like the tactic though - get a 16 year old girl to be the mouth piece for an incendiary diatribe, so people who retaliate in the expected way will look like total jerkwads.

Does that excuse said jerkwads?  I mean, even IF she was put up to this (God knows nobody has a political thought before age 30), does that mean their actions were excusable, therefore this is all her own fault?

Because if it's suddenly okay to do shit like this to people who disagree with you, I'm going to make life a living hell for the teabagger across the road, and sleep like a baby.

NO FAIR YOU'VE GOT A HEAD START
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

It's easy, really.  We just assume that this was all engineered by some shadowy lefty group, and this poor girl was the bait. 

This has the added benefit of reminding people to keep their mouths shut & get back to work.

Who's excusing anybody? I'm just surprised that people being assholes on the internet is even news. Internet comments are cheap and people say the most vile shit possible when they're anonymous... But if the person they're responding to is 16, you have the opportunity to GET OUTRAGED AND MAN THE HARPOONS. If being 16 really shields you from assholes, then we should all being posting as 16 year old girls.  :lol:
