Most unsurprising

Greg Sargent at The American Prospect hits the nail squarely on the head.

So let's get this straight: The FBI did contact Johnson twice. The first time it was because of a comment that "could be interpreted as a threat," and the second time it was because of "harassing emails." OK, so if we accept Johnson's version, is the Post piece really wrong in any meaningful sense? OK, "several" isn't twice, and in the second instance, the harassment was via email rather than via a post on the blog. Big deal. And Johnson's contention that the target was Hooper, not "Muslims"? Come on. He's the spokesperson for a Muslim group. Johnson's pushback is just inane.

Bottom line: Little Green Footballs has been contacted at least twice by the FBI about comments that could be construed as anti-Muslim threats. Given the hateful garbage that the site spews, I can't say I'm at all surprised.
