Weiner: Put New York Press In Trash
Representative Anthony Weiner has called on anyone who sees copies of the New York Press to put it where it belongs-in the trash.
The Press, a free weekly newspaper, features a front page article this week about the grave illness of the Pope.
The article, entitled “There’s Nothing Funny About This Man Dying. Or Is There?” lists the “52 funniest things about the upcoming death of the Pope.”
The list includes such entries as number 52, “Pope pisses himself just before the end; gets all over nurse”, and number 23 “doctors examining the body discover that the Pope was not only a woman, but also Hitler.”
“The Pope’s health is a matter of grave concern to people of faith and good will the world over,” said Rep. Weiner. “This vile article amounts to little more than hate speech.
The First Amendment may protect it, but that doesn’t mean we have to read it. I am calling on people of good conscience in New York City to put the Press where it belongs: in the trash.”
