Polito’s National Political Editor Michael Hirsch is out after posting wo addresses of Richard B. Spencer’s to his Facebook account, The Daily Caller Reports.

“Stop whining about Richard B. Spencer, Nazi, and exercise your rights as decent Americans,” Hirsh wrote in a public Facebook post. “Here are his two addresses.”

Hirsch was then asked on Facebook what he thought should be done with the addresses.

“Completely agree we should mobilize against his hateful ideas, but what does knowing his home addresses do?” asked Doug Widmann, Harvard Law graduate and senior vice president at the at The D. E. Shaw Group. “Send a letter? Confront him in person? Seems like counter-speech is the main thing we can do. You can call it “whining” but I’m not sure that’s fair or constructive. Side note: Apparently the GSA-owned Ronald Reagan International Trade Center in DC felt obligated to host his organization’s event because it can’t discriminate against speech under the First Amendment, so there’s that problem, too.”

Then Michael Hirsch came completely unglued.

“I wasn’t thinking of a fucking letter, Doug. He lives part of the time next door to me in Arlington. Our grandfathers brought baseball bats to Bund meetings. Want to join me?”

“Bund” is a reference to an American Nazi movement in the 1930s.  The organization was frequently the target of violent attacks by Jewish groups in New York City.

Another leftist media hack comes unhinged.  This one is now gone.  Michael Hirsch has exited Politico.

    Wow. This idiot is no better than those he hates. No better at all. He deserves to go to jail for putting the object of his hatred, and his family, in harm’s way. He deserves to go to jail for a very long time.
