Last week the Boston Globe published an op-ed piece from liberal Luke O’Neil who writes that one of his “biggest regrets” in life is “not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon” when he worked at a restaurant in Cambridge more than 10 years ago.
The piece then goes on to call for restaurant staff, particularly waiters to “tamper” with former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in the name of “serving America.” O’Neil writes “keep Kirstjen Nielsen unemployed and eating Grubhub over her kitchen sink.As for the waiters out there, I’m not saying you should tamper with anyone’s food, as that could get you into trouble. You might lose your serving job. But you’d be serving America. And you won’t have any regrets years later.”
Initially, the Globe edited O’Neil’s column, changing a number of lines and removing the line addressing waiters. The revised column was topped with an editor’s note reading: “A version of this column as originally published did not meet Globe standards and has been changed. The Globe regrets the previous tone of the piece.”
But the paper ultimately pulled the entire column, angering unhinged liberals.
