GOP Congress Candidates suggest the Firing Squad for Dr. Anthony Fauci
The unsettling thing is the response from the crowd...
A GOP Chair in Oklahoma running for Congress says he wants to put Dr. Fauci in front of a firing squad. The most sickening and concerning thing is the reaction to the comments was clapping and cheering. “We’re fighting communist Democrats!” yelled John Bennet as he ranted ridiculous rhetoric in a video shared by Right Wing Watch yesterday.
“We’re fighting against a system that stole the election in 2020 and nobody had been held accountable. We’re in a war with bureaucrats that have forced vaccine mandates on us, mask mandates on us.”
He also claimed that “wokeness confusion is being pushed down our throats now,” before his ridiculous idea: “And by the way, we should try Anthony Fauci and put him in front of a firing squad.” In a slight form of defense, Bennet added, “And for the Secret Service, if they’re listening, I’m not advocating we kill Anthony Fauci … until he’s convicted of his crimes through a court.”
Criticisms from both the left and right have been a talking point for Fauci as he has faced violent threats quite often due to his public health advice during the pandemic. Fauci even called for the firing of Fox News host Jesse Watters as he urged young adults to ambush Fauci and “go for the kill shot.”
“The only thing that I have ever done throughout these two years is to encourage people to practice good public health practices: to get vaccinated, to be careful in public settings, to wear a mask.”
Fauci said, which can be debatable, but he doesn’t deserve death threats…
