I was expecting the usual suspects to make hay out of the tragedy in Las Vegas, and I was right.
CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night.
. . .
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network’s now-former vice president and senior counsel, took to Facebook after a gunman opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and sending more than 520 others to hospitals.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”

A tip o’ the hat to CBS for immediately firing the lawyer . . . but her reactions are shared by far too many who should know better. I’m sure my readers have found other examples. If you do, please share them with us in Comments, on the principle that we should be able to identify the enemies of democracy and freedom.
