Hey GOP, if you think you’re the party of “family values” and “pro life”, you might want to take a harder look at yourselves and at what the Merrimack Patch is reporting about one of your New Hampshire tea bagger pals:
Former Town Councilor Mike Malzone, the founder of the Merrimack Tea Party, said Thursday in a Facebook post reacting to the Supreme Court ruling on health care, “I hope the (5 supremes) get colon cancer.”
A day after posting the message, Malzone said he stands by what he said. He clarified that he doesn’t want anyone to die, and the cancer reference was more to make a point that he wants them to feel the pain being inflicted on Americans being overburdened by taxes.
“I didn’t wish for anyone to die, but I said I do wish for them to feel our pain,” he said. “No one cares about me, they all make their promises and then go do what they goddamn feel.”
Sure, that makes sense… because the pain and suffering from colon cancer is identical to paying a penalty fee of $95.
He posted that message on the Merrimack Tea Facebook page.
At the end of his post, he apologized to his followers for the strong language he used, but several people who responded told him no apology was necessary.
Apologies are never necessary when offensive language is directed at those with whom you disagree. Of course, had someone wished him terminal illness, Malzone would be on his soap box screaming bloody murder, demanding retribution!
Okay now, think… think… who was it that came up with this individual mandate/tax penalty health care plan in the first place? Oh that’s right, one Willard M. Romney did. What does Malzone wish on him?
Oh, but hey, let’s be fair, I’m sure he’s really, really sorry, right?
“I apologized to the people that do follow me, for my language. To the people that have done this to us, I don’t apologize. But I do apologize to the people who follow me if I offended them.”
Will he apologize to Justice Ginsburg “if” he offended her? And yes, that was rhetorical.
