Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is a worthless rich kid shithead that, like Donald Trump, represents all of America’s moral failures as a country. He’s dumb and he’s incompetent, he’s cruel and he’s narcissistic, and he owes his elevated position in society to corruption and the power that economic inequality affords the wealthy.
On Monday, June 1, likely following in the steps of his white supremacist meal wagon Donald Trump, Gaetz tweeted out: “Now that we clearly see Antifa as terrorists, can we hunt them down like we do those in the Middle East?” This, as gun control activist David Hogg justifiably surmised, is a direct call for “the extrajudicial killing” of American citizens.
This isn’t the first time Rep. Matt Gaetz has tweeted out something that seems to be an actual federal offense. You might remember that Gaetz threatened federal witness and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen last year in a tweet—something that most people with more than a handful of brain cells rightly saw as an attempt to obstruct justice.
Since writing, Twitter has put a warning on Gaetz’ tweet.
