On Wednesday, Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat running for the House seat currently held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., declared on Twitter that he wants to "decimate" Christians, NRA supporters, members of the Tea Party and those who watch Fox News. In another tweet issued later Wednesday, he said he wanted to "eradicate" the Tea Party.

"Said it proudly! Want to decimate the tea party, the NRA, bible thumpers, and Fox News zombies? Vote for me," he tweeted.

According to Dictionary.com, the word "decimate" means to "destroy a great number or proportion of." It can also mean "to select by lot and kill every tenth person of."

In short, Dickinson expressed a desire to kill one-tenth of those who supports the NRA, the Tea Party, and Christians, a group he regularly denigrates as "bible thumpers."

But Dickinson wasn't finished.

After claiming the Tea Party is the modern KKK, he called for the small-government, pro-Constitution movement to be eradicated.

"Lady liberty has a cancerous tumor called the tea party. Time to eradicate it," he said.

After calling for political genocide, he falsely claimed the Tea Party only wants freedom for white men.

Recently, Dickinson came under fire for calling the NRA "pure trash."

After his tweet became national news, Twitter suspended his account, but later brought it back, prompting Dickinson to become even more violent in his rhetoric.

Dickinson is set to appear on Fox News' "On the Record" with Greta van Susteren on Thursday to defend his promise to engage in a massive abuse of power against millions of Americans if he is elected in November.
