Mike Dickinson, the unhinged Virginia Democrat who once sought the House seat formerly held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., issued a tweet Sunday asking God to kill everyone in the NRA with the Ebola virus. The tweet was sent after he issued another message saying he would lead a prayer asking God to murder everyone in the NRA during the debut of his alleged radio program.
"Dear god (sic)," he began. "Please use Ebola to infect the @NRA and it's various members. For they are A (sic) true virus and true terrorists in America."
He followed that up with another tweet, telling the world he thinks "there would be no funnier thing then (sic) to see the @NRA s (sic) members in a death clutch of their gun while dealing w Ebola." Dickinson's tweets didn't go over well with anyone.
"I doubt hate speech will help out your campaign.....especially since your (sic) running in Virginia," one person said. Dickinson, however, is not on the ballot as he elected to not file papers.
"@VoteMike2014 you realize how damaging this is to your image, right?" one person asked. "Or is it acceptable to wish death on political opponents in the US now?"
Dickinson has shown with his vile tweets and juvenile actions that he apparently doesn't care about his image. In early July, for example, he issued a $100,000 reward for nude photos of 19-year-old Kendall Jones, a cheerleader who hunts big game. Dickinson's "campaign," if one could even call it that, consisted entirely of false, hateful tweets attacking the NRA, the Tea Party, Christians and anyone to the right of Stalin. At one point, he sought support from those who wanted to see him "decimate" Christians.
On Monday, for example, he issued a tweet falsely claiming the Tea Party consists of high school dropouts who "lack mental capacity." "That's why they blame the black man when they can't get a job," he falsely claimed. Naturally, Dickinson offered no proof to back up his false assertion.
Dickinson first gained national attention when he claimed Fox News lies and suggested Soviet-style monitoring and regulation. Although he talked tough on Twitter, he crumpled like a cheap suit when he actually faced those he accused. In a masterfully conducted interview, Greta van Susteren got Dickinson to admit he lied about his connections to local adult businesses.
Now, Dickinson claims he will be a regular feature at radio station WHAN, where he will translate his hate from Twitter to the airwaves. WHAN, however, doesn't mention Dickinson on its website, and has not confirmed to Examiner that he will be part of their lineup.
