On Monday, the New Hampshire Republican Party said its headquarters had been vandalized by liberal activists pushing Obamacare, but Keith McCrea, spokesman for Democratic State Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, apparently thought it was funny in a tweet calling the reported vandalism "hilarious," Twitchy reported Monday.
"Our party headquarters has been vandalized by liberal political activists. Outrageous and shameful," the N.H. GOP tweeted, along with a picture of the building.
"WWJD Healthcare for everyone," the graffiti said.
"Why does the GOP hate Christ," McCrea tweeted.
"Hilarious. Who does that party represent again?" he said in another tweet.
McCrea deleted both tweets, but not before they were captured and preserved.
Republicans said they reported the vandalism and called on Clark to denounce McCrea's actions.
"It is outrageous that a high ranking staffer for a prominent Democrat elected official would call vandalism to our headquarters 'hilarious' and say that it means Republicans 'hate Christ,'” the Party said in a statement.
"Senator Martha Fuller Clark and the New Hampshire Democrat Party need to immediately condemn these despicable comments and make it clear that they do not condone vandalism in politics,” said New Hampshire Republican Party Executive Director Matt Slater. “As the leader of the New Hampshire Democrat Party, Governor Maggie Hassan should also condemn these shameful political tactics so that Democrat activists understand that this kind of rhetoric has no place in our political discourse.”
McCrea apologized in a tweet that got hammered for its bad grammar.
"[P]lease accept my apologies for previous remarks. I in know way sought to defend breaking the law," he tweeted.
"You mean 'no' way? Give me a break. You and your party should be embarrassed," one person tweeted.
Unfortunately, this kind of behavior has become more common in the Democratic Party lately.
In late September, for example, Allan Brauer, former communications chair to the Democratic Party of Sacramento County, Calif., sent a tweet to Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter expressing hope that her children die from "debilitating, painful and incurable diseases." He also issued tweets expressing a desire to blow up the 2016 GOP convention while advocating eating Republicans.
Last December, John Cobarruvias, a member of the Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee, called for shooting members of the NRA on Facebook and Twitter. He deleted his messages, but not before being captured.
In February 2011, we put forward the hypothesis that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. On just about any given day liberals like McCrea prove that assertion correct.
