Liberal journalist and New York Times bestselling author Kurt Eichenwald went on a Twitter tirade last week that caused one of his tweets to be removed from the social media platform for violating its terms of service.
The diatribe began with a tweet posted last Wednesday that read, "it's at a moment like this that I want to find an anti-masker and beat them to death. Since they believe they have the right to kill others, they have surrendered any right to object. #CategoricalImperative."
Later on in the day he added, “..no, I’m not planning to kill anyone. Just, as the misery descends on our family again, it is hard not to contemplate violence against those who don’t care if they kill.”
His attacks didn’t stop there. The following day he pressed on about his desire for the deaths of “antimaskers,” Republican lawmakers and their families. One tweet read, "I have so much hate in my heart tonight. My sister, widowed by COVID, has COVID because of anti-maskers. About 4,000 died today; GOP says nothing. [U.S. Senator Josh Hawley] & his ilk are working to harm America. I wish them & their loved ones all the pain & misery they inflicted on this country."
His atrocious tweets caused a Twitter user to ask him, “Anti-maskers did this? How do people who wear masks get it then?”
Eichenwald’s wonderfully scientific response read, "Because you F***ING MORON, masks primarily protect other people. And since 40% of the infected are asymptomatic, the ones without masks are spreading the disease because they don't give a S**T about killing others. You are either STILL uninformed or too stupid to care."
Thanks, Bill Nye.
When his tweet about beating an "antimasker" to death was removed, Eichenwald blamed Twitter and, in essence, said they had no right to remove it.
Eichenwald then went on to tweet about his lack of care for children left orphaned by parents who refused to wear maskssaying, "If someone is willing to leave the children of innocents without parents, I don't care if their own kids are orphans. Reap what they sew [sic]. It shouldn't just be the innocent that suffer."
The left-wing journalist also thought he became a biblical scholar when he quoted a Bible verse to determine what he believes God will do to those who don’t wear masks. He tweeted "You F***ing 'Christians' who preen about God saving you from COVID so you don't need masks. You're what Jesus condemns. You kill with hypocrisy. Read Matthew 25:41-46. If you realize the Bible is about more than hating gays, you'll realize: For your selfishness, you'll burn in hell."
This wasn’t the first time Twitter users have been exposed to a repulsive rant straight from the looney and warped mind of Kurt Eichenwald. In 2017, he went wild after Republicans announced their plan to replace Obamacare. He tweeted, “As one w/ preexisting condition: I hope every GOPr who voted 4 Trumpcare sees a family member get long term condition, lose insurance, & die.”
His tirade didn’t end there, though, it continued on the Obamacare topic along the lines of wishing those who sided with the replacement of Obamacare suffering and death – a typical and original Eichenwald plot. No wonder he was a New York Times bestseller.
Eichenwald also hopped onto the fake news train at the time that wrongfully claimed GOP congressmen were celebrating the passage of the Obamacare repeal bill with beer. Kurt tweeted, “They want to drink beer celebrating killing people? Then it should be their loved ones who die.”
With all the death and destruction Eichenwald is wishing, thinking and tweeting about, maybe he’ll make a modern-day Game of Thrones spinoff for his next New York Times hit.
