Well, Ya know, they don't know proper English either. One is hanged, not hung.


"...Why is everyone a victim? Take personal responsibility for your life..."

“Hung from a tall tree”: Second Republican calls for lynching critics of white supremacy

 

“Hung from a tall tree”: Second Republican calls for lynching critics of white supremacy
 

Missouri state Rep. Warren Love said on Facebook that he hoped Confederate statue vandals are lynched.

Ever since the deadly neo-Nazi riot in Charlottesville, which centered on a condemned statue of Robert E. Lee, efforts to remove Confederate monuments have intensified.

 

But the statues, many of which were erected by white supremacist groups explicitly to protest Black civil rights, still have defenders.

 

Several Republicans, including Donald Trump and Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie, insist the statues are necessary to honor Southern history, even as they hypocritically allow Black heroes of the Civil War era to go unhonored and forgotten.

 

This mentality seems to be a common thread among Republicans, it's like somewhere along the line the party of Lincoln turned into the party of Jefferson Davis, or in current events the party of Hitler.
