FLORIDA – Politics is hardly ever pretty when it comes for folks racing toward an election, and thus that means the election for Florida’s 18th congressional district is not immune from the likes of nasty rhetoric from people trying to get a seat at the table.
But when you have people calling for an “open season” for killing your political opponents, then that is where a line has been crossed.
The person who crafted a hypothetical call for murdering the likes of President Trump, Roger Stone and AG Bill Barr is Pam Keith. This Democrat is vying to land Florida’s congressional seat for the 18th district, but a Twitter post dating back to June 10th of this year puts her disturbing mindset on full display:
“GOP: Yeah he’s dead. But it’s not a big deal because he was a “bad guy.” Is that REALLY the new rule they want? Killing is OK if it’s a “bad guy?” Is it now open season on: Flynn, Manafort, Stone, Gates, Cohen, Trump, Barr, Kavanaugh, Lewandowski, Bolton, Pompeo, Papadopolous, Parscale.”
While many were reasonably outraged over the disgusting tweet that has recently gained newfound attention, others are also poking fun at it for the blatant stupidity of putting something like this online while trying to run for office.
One Twitter exchange in response to Keith’s tweet resulted in the following:
“Publishing a hit list. Hillary would be proud.”
The responding tweet to said sarcastic response went as follows:
“Hillary would be annoyed someone is stepping on her turf haha.”
The seat Keith is gunning for is currently held by Republican Brian Mast and the district in question has been relatively red since 2016. However, this upcoming election for the district is currently being touted as a possible toss-up when predicting the results.
Mast happens to be a veteran who served in Afghanistan that had lost both of his legs due to a bomb that detonated underneath him while serving overseas.
As for Keith, she actually received accolades from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chairwoman Cheri Bustos in an article written over two months after the calls to commence “open season” on certain Republicans:
“A Navy veteran and attorney, Pam Keith has the experience and a record of fighting for what’s right.”
She also has a “record” of making jabs at her political adversaries by toying with the idea that they should be killed because they’re “bad guys” in her mind.
But then again, we’re dealing with the same Keith who effectively called half of the country “racist” last year if they support President Donald Trump. Obviously, that strategy worked out real well for Hillary Clinton when she made that whole “backet of deplorables” comment in 2016.
Pretty much every time Keith jumps on to Twitter, she espousing some nonsense related to not liking President Trump. Apparently, she’s adopted the modern political strategy of recent years of running on the campaign promise of ‘I don’t like Trump’.
Seriously – if you examine any of the fringe leftists either in office or trying to win an election, they almost always bear some kind of ‘Orange Man Bad’ stance as being part of their strategy to serve their constituents.
And get this – Keith actually had the gall to criticize her opponent for Facebook posts he made in 2009 and 2010 making jokes pertaining to rape. Albeit, they weren’t flattering jokes in the least, but they were a decade ago shortly after he lost his legs in war. Kind of a little different scenario and context there.
It’s another classic example of good for me but not for thee, as often illustrated by fringe elements from the modern leftists elected or struggling to get into office. The country already enough fringe-induced elected officials to deal with already, the last thing we need is more of them.
