Liberal website Salon shocked many late Friday night with a tweet that used the deadly terror attacks in Paris to attack conservatives.
“Real terror unfolds in Paris,” the tweet said. “Perhaps this will convince the right to done down their incessant violent rhetoric.”

The tweet linked to a story by Chauncey Devega who assailed the political right for “incendiary rhetoric” that “does in fact lead to action.”
Immediately after the article was published and posted to Twitter, readers blasted the website.
Devega, however, stood by his story and mocked critics on Twitter.
