Fire Paul Krugman NYTimes Op-Ed Writer sign now

Shortly after the tragic shooting in Arizona of congress woman Gabrielle Giffords and many others, a number of liberal pundits quickly speculated without any fact or information that the attacks were motivated by right-wing interests and participants such as Sarah Palin, talk radio etc. While lower standards can be found in the blogosphere one central contributor emerged from the NYTimes; Paul Krugman, who while acknowledging he had no evidence of such connections to the shooter; Jared Loughner, "bet" it was connected to conservative influence. A vicious slander cycle was greatly attributed by the political weight of a NYTimes op-ed writer with many liberal influences and connections. He very actively spread this libel in the coming days.

The "bet" has proven very false and no apology has been issued by the very partisan writer Mr. Krugman and no discipline has been issued from the NYTimes. Mr. Krugman also promotes an extreme theory called eliminationist rhetoric that compares the treatment of the political left as Jewish victims of the holocaust while the political right are depicted as Nazis. It is offensive and insulting at so many obvious levels, too numerous to address completely in this petition but can easily be web searched. It is an extreme and socially unhealthy reality in any publication to have such hate driven views subsidized or promoted.

The undersigned formally ask the NYTimes to apologize for this event and Mr. Krugman be terminated from employment for his gross editorial abuse of which he has a long history of similar excesses.

    I became politically aware in the 1960s. Since then, I have seen the filth, bile, and venom spewing from the Left increasing exponentially. Only the theocracy-now psychos like Falwell match it on the Right. Please do your part to "decrease the inflamed rh

    Krugman was hired to comment on economic matters but has been carried away by delusions of grandeur to believe he is qualified to speak on anything that he fancies; it's time for him to go back to his little corner of the world in the ivory tower.
