The hatred and demonization of tens of millions of Americans who support former President Donald Trump reached a new level this week after a high-profile Democratic lawmaker proposed his ultimate solution to the MAGA right.
According to Breitbart, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) was asked about his outlook on the upcoming Senate election, as he faces off with Republican candidate J.D. Vance. Ryan admitted that the best way to deal with the MAGA Republicans is to “kill and confront” them.
The violent rhetoric comes in the wake of President Joe Biden’s primetime speech during which he demonized Trump supporters as domestic terrorists.
Ryan has already experienced backlash for the comments, but not from the mainstream media, who would have excoriated a Republican candidate who threatened to kill and wipe out Democrat voters.
The Ohio Democrat made clear that he wants MAGA Republicans to be wiped off the map, by any means necessary.
“What is your message to Ohio Republicans in this general election who may look at J.D. Vance and say I don’t like the way he’s running the campaign, maybe I don’t like the guy, and they’re giving you a look?” Ryan was asked during an MSNBC interview.
“I’m one of the most bipartisan members of Congress. The last two congresses, I have been in the top 10% of most bipartisan. I want to work across the aisle. Look, Democrats aren’t right on everything, and I’m willing to sit down and have conversations about how we can move out of this age of stupidity and into an age of reconciliation and reform. How do we fix all of these broken systems,” he replied.
That’s when he announced his fantasy of killing MAGA Republicans and their agenda.
“Some of those answers will come from Republicans, not the extremists that we are dealing with every single day. We’ve got to kill and confront that movement, but working with normal mainstream Republicans, that’s going to be really, really important,” Ryan continued.
Unsurprisingly, he finished the interview by begging for donations.
Ryan’s fight to claim the empty Ohio Senate seat is being heavily watched by both the DNC and RNC, and his opponent, J.D. Vance, is virtually tied with him in the polls.
Given the Senate’s current 50-50 split, one or more extra seats on either side will radically alter the way the upper chamber does business for the next two years.
