“So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” the tweet read. The threatening message was removed, and we understand the Twitter account was deleted, but not before the tweet was captured for posterity.
Minnesota teacher who tweeted call to ‘kill Kavanaugh’ resigns
The teacher, identified by multiple social media users and local outlets as Samantha Ness, had been placed on paid administrative leave after the message was widely shared online.
Trump’s tweet appears to have been sparked by a Fox and Friends segment featuring reporting from Asra Nomani. “It’s not the individual protesters getting the money but it is the organizations that are running these protests,” Nomani explained, adding, “We have to acknowledge that this is propaganda. This is messaging. They are very skilled at it.”
Yes, Brett Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Rue the day. Rend your garments.
Then, step back, view the entirety of the battle in which you are engaged, and understand that Kavanaugh is just one part of a much larger plan by conservatives to fundamentally change the American political structure so that it enshrines and protects white male power even after America’s changing demographics and mores move away from that power.
Never have I felt more ashamed of my sex than in the last two weeks watching hysterical harridans trashing tradition, decorum, and common decency. The Kavanaugh confirmation circus has brought out the worst of womankind –woman who forced themselves, writhing with hatred and ignorance, into our living rooms and smart devices uninvited and without consent. I’ve never felt so assaulted in my life than after watching the fiendish, frenzied temper tantrums of a thousand deranged females during what is supposed to be tedious, uneventful Senate procedure to seat a Supreme Court justice.
Gardner, who voiced his support for Kavanaugh’s confirmation in July and continued to support the justice throughout the confirmation process, told Fox News Sunday his wife not only received the graphic message, but several of his family members had their names and addressed posted publicly in a process also known as “doxxing.”
Earlier this week a mob of students, enraged by a pro-Brett Kavanaugh tabling effort at the University of Texas at Austin put together by its Young Conservatives of Texas chapter, encircled and yelled at its members while chanting obscenities. Several students were also filmed grabbing the young conservatives’ signs out of their hands and ripping them up.
A man allegedly caught on viral video doing a roundhouse kick and striking a woman in the shoulder during an anti-abortion rally, knocking her phone out of her hand, has been arrested by Toronto Police.
As pressure mounted on senators to vote for or against Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, one progressive magazine editor indicated she wanted to make the rest of Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-Ariz.) life terrible if he voted in favor of the nominee.
The chamber voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, mostly along party lines, after a weeklong FBI probe helped settle concerns among most wavering senators about the sexual assault allegations that nearly derailed his nomination and led to a dramatic second hearing. Saturday’s roll call marked the tightest successful Supreme Court confirmation vote in over 100 years, closer than even that of Clarence Thomas who similarly faced sexual misconduct allegations.
It just keeps getting weirder and weirder for the Trumps. No matter where they go, no matter what they do — it doesn’t even matter what they wear — Trump Derangement Syndrome accompanies them on their travels.
