Second Engineered Hate

And the other ridiculous Huffington Post Israel related story:

I'm not as critical of the Huffington Post editors this time around, because we all know how much they enjoy behaving like a tabloid when it comes to politicians, even politicians in foreign countries. Like this story about Lebanese politicians fighting each other or a fight in the Ukranian parliament, among others. So covering this is very typical Huffington Post behavior. However, you may notice that neither of those stories got anywhere near the amount of traffic that this story did. Though most of the arguing was about whether she was right to soak her colleague, there was also a women/men discussion in there as well. However, inevitably the usual racism and bigotry that we have come to expect did appear:

That's the Huffington Post for you.
