No doubt inspired in part by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who called supporters of the Bundy ranch "domestic terrorists," a number of liberals on Twitter expressed their desire to see the ranch and its supporters killed by drone strikes, Paul Joseph Watson reported at Infowars Monday. Such a raid would, of course, kill innocent children as well as men and women, but it seems that didn't matter to those demanding the deadly raid.
"If ever there was a time for a drone strike, I'd say Bundy's self-appointed militia should've been turned into paste on the prairie," one person said.
"If you really want to make me purr, show me gun cam footage of the Bundy ranch drone strike," another person added. Many others expressed the same sentiment.
In all, Watson posted about 12 tweets expressing a desire to see the ranch destroyed and its supporters killed by drone strike. We found many more tweets expressing a similar desire on Twitter.
"Of course, it’s virtually inconceivable that the White House would launch a Predator drone strike against U.S. citizens, Harry Reid’s 'domestic terrorist' slur not withstanding," Watson wrote, "but the mere fact that self-proclaimed liberals are openly calling for Bundy supporters to be massacred provides us with yet another chilling insight into the warped minds of statists."
As we first wrote in February 2011, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. And as we have documented hundreds of times, that hatred is often expressed through calls for death. Throughout the 2012 election, for example, liberals routinely called for GOP nominee Mitt Romney to be murdered.
After the tragic Newtown school shooting, liberals called for the murder of those who support the right to keep and bear arms. Journalists, powerful Democrats and Hollywood celebrities jumped on the bandwagon, calling for the death of gun owners and supporters of the NRA.
Sometimes, liberals become genocidal in their blind hatred. In July 2011, for example, we reported that gay sex columnist Dan Savage told Bill Maher he wished all Republicans were "(expletive deleted) dead." Maher said nothing in response, acting as though the comment was never made.
Liberal talk show host Mike Malloy once fantasized about an "angel of the Lord" killing everyone in the Tea Party by cutting off their heads. He also said he wanted to see the entire Republican Party "literally dead."
Watson also observed the hypocrisy of the left in their calls to see the Bundys murdered by federal drones: "Virtually every point of resentment directed against Bundy by leftists is borne out of repugnant duplicity and double standards, most notably the charge that Bundy is both engaging in lawlessness and is a 'freeloader' for not paying grazing fees, a criticism liberals are perfectly willing to dispense with when it comes to the 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States."
He also reminded readers that liberals were outraged when pepper spray was used against Occupy Wall Street protesters. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, he added, liberals have adopted the role of cheerleader, urging the federal government to kill the Bundys and their supporters.
Reid's office was unavailable for comment at the time of this writing.
