On Friday, Mike Dickinson, the Virginia liberal seeking the House seat currently held by Eric Cantor, R-Va., despite not officially being on the ballot, suggested in a "game" played mostly by juveniles on Twitter, that Kendall Jones, the Texas Tech cheerleader who enjoys hunting, conservative mom Holly Fisher and conservative columnist Michelle Malkin be killed.
"Let's play (expletive deleted), marry, kill," he tweeted. "#KendallJones @HollyRFisher and @michellemalkin."
In the last few days, Dickinson has obsessed over Jones, offering a $100,000 reward for nude photos or videos of the 19-year-old cheerleader. He has also solicited sex stories from former boyfriends and reached out to the Daily Toreador, the student-run Texas Tech newspaper, seeking to run an ad soliciting lewd photos for cash.
Twitchy, noting that Dickinson "has issues with women," said that while media outlets have covered his obsession with Jones, they have not reported that he has gone after Fisher "with a similar attempted 'revenge porn' crime." Fisher is the conservative mother who was targeted by the liberal hate machine after observing that her baby daughter lost her heart doctor due to Obamacare.
Dickinson, referring to Fisher as a "moron," speculated there are nude photos of her and offered $100 for them. The tweet sparked condemnation from a number of people.
It's also not the first time Dickinson -- allegedly a grown man -- has engaged in the game normally played by young people on Twitter where they must declare whether they would have sex, marry or kill the people being mentioned. In May, he suggested killing Malkin, Sarah Palin and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Later in the month, he suggested killing Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Ann Coulter and Gov. Nikki Haley, using the same technique.
"Another day, another (expletive deleted), Marry, Kill. @nikkihaley @AnnCoulter and @SenTedCruz it's all fun and games (sic). Who would pick (sic)? This one is easy," he tweeted. A post at Urban Dictionary says the game "is not intended for literal thoughts," but Dickinson's history of unhinged tweets makes it difficult for most people to believe he doesn't want harm to come to his targets.
Dickinson was first noticed when he accused Fox News of lying and suggested Soviet-style monitoring of the network. He refused to file his election paperwork, choosing instead to appear with Greta van Susteren, who expertly got him to admit lying.
Democrats chose Jack Trammell as their candidate, leaving Dickinson in the cold. Nevertheless, he insists he's running for the House seat, and Ballotpedia has referred to him as a write-in candidate. Moreover, he thinks his campaign of hate will propel him to the House, where he has pledged to engage in a massive campaign of abuse against conservatives.
