Does she look like a lunatic to you? That’s because she is.
Tea Party radio host Andrea Shea King argued recently that Democratic lawmakers — and specifically members of the Congressional Black Caucus — should be put to death by hanging if they boycotted Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Tuesday speech to Congress
“Obama doesn’t have to run for reelection again, a lot of these guys do,” King said in a clip of her radio show that was published by Right Wing Watch on Monday. “Listen, I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol Building.”
“Because what they are doing is they are putting their own interests above that of America,” she continued. “And to me, that is criminal. Criminal!”
King noted that “most of those members who are opting out of attending the speech are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.”
This is what many of the right-wing Tea Party types actually believe, but most of them do not state it so bluntly in public.
How is she different from the Ku Klux Klan or the John Birch Society?
