Aha, so there is a line beyond which even the Republican party refuses to go.
I was sondering.

A Florida Republican congressional hopeful who apparently called for Rep. Ilhan Omar and other Democrats to be hanged in a fundraising email has been removed from a GOP initiative that supports candidates.
George Buck Jr., who is challenging Democratic Rep. Charlie Crist in Florida’s 13th Congressional District, threatens Omar and Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan in an email obtained by CNN that was dated November 26 and includes his signature, though he has denied writing it. The email labels the four minority progressive lawmakers, who call themselves “The Squad,” as “anti-American” and associates them with Crist.
“We should hang these traitors where they stand. I have no tolerance for those who are abusing our system to destroy our country,” says the email, which also includes unsubstantiated allegations that Omar was a foreign agent. Buck has denied he wrote the email, saying, “I would never talk like that,” the Tampa Bay Times reported. CNN has asked Buck to clarify his comment to the Tampa Bay Times.
Really? Then who did?
Nobody actually believes that whole “They hacked my Twitter/Facebook account anymore.
Now I have to wonder if the GOP will continue supporter Omar’s challenger Danielle Stella who called for her lynching on Twitter?
I mean if you are going to punish one, why not punish all who resort to this kind of rhetoric?
