Newsmax, WND Embrace Pat Boone's Eliminationist Rhetoric
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax has apparently learned nothing from the controversy over columnist John L. Perry calling for a military coup against President Obama.

It has published a column by Pat Boone calling for a "tenting" of the White House:

Experts come in, actually envelope the whole dwelling in a giant tent — and send a very powerful fumigant, lethal to the varmints and unwelcome creatures, into every nook and cranny of the house. Done thoroughly, every last destructive insect or rodent is sent to varmint hell. In a day or two, the grand house is habitable again.


I believe — figuratively, but in a very real way — We need to tent the White House!

For reasons only the current occupant can explain, he purposely has brought a whole flock of social and political voracious varmints with him into our White House. He doesn’t own it; he hasn’t even rented it; we the people simply have given him the keys and invited him to live there for four years, making it convenient to serve us better, to carry out our expressed wishes for our country.


To the dismay of millions of us, this occupant seems to think we need an emperor.


Our White House is being eaten away, from within. We urgently need to throw a “tent” of public remonstration and outcry over that hallowed abode, to cause them to quake and hunker down inside. And then treat the invaders, the alien rodents, to massive voter gas — the most lethal antidote to would-be tyrants and usurpers.


We must clean house — starting with our own White House.

WorldNetDaily has also published Boone's column. But WND doesn't care about truth, and hateful anti-Obama rhetoric is rife. But Newsmax actually showed some responsibility by removing Perry's column (though not to the point where it apologized to its readers for publishing it in the first place). 

Will Newsmax show the same quasi-responsibility here by curbing Boone's eliminationist rhetoric?

UPDATE: Newsmax appears to have placed Boone's column in some sort of weird stealth mode -- the column is still live, but it's been removed from Boone's column archive.
