Look. I’m as pissed off as anyone about the election (well, mostly the Senate. A POTUS Romney would have killed conservatism. At least we are on life support). But I don’t care who it is, there is no place for these kinds of comments against anyone. I’d have fired her.

And the First Amendment doesn’t apply. It only applies to State action. This is a private Corp.

Be angry. Comment, argue and scream ... but threats and this (hers) reaction is childish and demeans conservatism.

Good answer to anyone critical of FR for censorship, rules, guidelines, banning, etc. It's always the owner's prerogative.

“And the First Amendment doesn’t apply. It only applies to State action.”

True enough. But then, “To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men...”

The First Amendment is to protect against government violation, but government is supposed to protect against violation by others. That leaves open the question of whether or not a violation occurred in this case.
