On Thursday, former President George H. W. Bush celebrated his 90th birthday with a tandem parachute drop in the Kennebunkport, Me., area. While most wished the elder Bush well, some predictably engaged in the usual hate on Twitter, wishing the former president would die as a result of the drop, Twitchy reported.

"[W]ouldn't it be wonderful if Bush's parachute didn't open; be one of the greatest starts of the summer in history!" one person said. "Hoping for some magic!"

"Hope he dies jumping out that plane," another person said in a profanity-laced tweet. "Corrupt bastard."

"[P]lease fall and die. Thanks," added "Nick."

Twitchy posted 20 tweets wishing death on the former president. A search of Twitter found many more death wishes.

"Pls die pls die (sic)," one person said.

"Let's just hope your parachute doesn't open George H.W. Bush, one less freemason on this planet. You're all useless anyway," another person added.

This isn't the first time liberal hatemongers have wished death on Bush. As we reported last December, the long knives came out as soon as he joined Twitter.

Some called him a murderer and a terrorist while many issued tweets so vile and profane we were unable to quote them here. One person, for example, expressed a profane desire to have sex with Bush's granddaughters.

Last November, liberal hatemongers flocked to Twitter upon learning the former president was in the hospital with a persistent cough.

"I hope he die (sic)," one person using the racist screen name "Die cRackEr" said.

Liberals also flocked to sites like NBC and the Huffington Post, wishing death on Bush.

In February 2011, we first said that liberalism is, at its core, an ideology of rage and hate. On just about any given day, liberals prove that assertion correct with some going so far as to express a desire to see every Republican or conservative in the country dead.

Bush, who announced the jump with a tweet, has made jumping from an airplane something of a tradition, having marked his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays with a jump, the Wall Street Journal said. His first jump was during World War II when his plane was shot down over the Pacific Ocean.
