Recently Tony Kornheiser said publicly that drivers should intentially hit bicyclists. He was commenting on the addition of bike lanes to some streets in D.C. He said, "And they all, my God, with their water bottles in the back, and their stupid hats, and their shiny shorts, they're the same kind of disgusting posers that in a snowstorm come out with cross-country skis on your block," Kornheiser said. "Run them down."
"So you tap them. I'm not saying kill them."
Lance Armstrong had the following to say regarding Kornheiser's statements, "Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot."
Unfortunately the level of hatred towards bicyclists and motorist attitudes and statements encouraging violence is nothing new.
