Erick Erickson is a dick. And when the conservative Atlanta WSB pundit and blogger feigned support for gay Boy Scouts, he hoped to stir a hornet's nest. He did. A nest of Twitter trolls like Corey Lovins.
The gay Atlanta guy launched into an 11-tweet rampage on Friday that threatened Erickson with violence, accused him of masturbating to child porn, advised him to hire a bodyguard and undercut Lovins' hope of world peace and non-violence. Ouch.
It started off simply enough.
Then Lovins was getting warmed up.
And then this.
Which finally provoked a response from Erickson.
Lovins then turns down the heat.
But not for long.
Which leads to Erickson pointing out some irony.
Then it's really on.
And more threats of violence.
Now a little background.
Some more violence.
And then a declaration of war, albeit a little late.
Erickson turned to prayer.
Since Friday, Lovins has gone quiet on Twitter. Which is possibly a good thing, given his war on Erickson and this March 2012 response to another anti-gay dick.
