This apology was encouraged by the seven and a half thousand threats he got from people who promised to do the same to him. See, he was talking crap just to sound all cool to fellow twits. He can’t be sure which of those several thousand pissed off and disgusted people might actually have meant it.

Washington Times:

A writer at GQ has published an apology for wishing he could confront the mother of Benghazi terror victim Sean Smith and beat her to death.

Patricia Smith spoke at the Republican convention in Cleveland on Monday and told attendees about the the death of her son on Sept. 11, 2012, in Libya. GQ’s Bethlehem Shoals, whose real name is Nathaniel Friedman, tweeted a death wish after the woman criticized former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I don’t care how many children Pat Smith lost, I would like to beat her to death,” Mr. Shoals wrote. The tweet was deleted but captured beforehand by news watchdog Media Research Center.

Ms. Smith told a nationally televised audience of roughly 10 million people that she blames Mrs. Clinton for the death of her son, an information management officer with the U.S. Foreign Service at the time of his death.

“In an email to her daughter shortly after the attack, Hillary Clinton blamed it on terrorism, but when I saw Hillary Clinton at Sean’s coffin ceremony, just days later, she looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible,” Ms. Smith said. “Since then, I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to explain to me the real reason why.
