Earlier today, we reported that Cher, the pop diva once referred to by Rush Limbaugh as a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance, called Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, “SATAN INCARNATE,” a deviant, Hitler and a “Judas” to America.
My friend Josh Bernstein shared that article on my Facebook page with a strongly-worded message highly critical of Cher:
Because of my settings, the message instantly went out on my Twitter feed, prompting Cher to post it on her page. Naturally, this sent her followers into a frenzy.
Let’s be clear about one thing — I do not support the idea of anyone dying, even those with whom I disagree, and this does not reflect my personal opinion. So naturally, I sought to offer my apologies to Cher and got presented with this:
Fine. Whatever. Then it hit me.
Over the years, Cher has posted some of the most insane, over-the-top messages on Twitter and now she’s upset that someone responded.
Here’s just a small sample.
Earlier this year, she blamed George Bush for the rise of ISIS.
Stars Collide & Vile Men Cause Destruction& Death.Bush,Perle, Cheney,Wolfowitz,Ashcroft,Rumsfeld,Destroyed Iraq &Caused ISIS?? WHERE’D??GO⁉️

What do you get when you put G.Bush, D.Cheney,D.Rumsfeld, C.Powell,R.Perle.C.Rice &P.Wolfowitz,Together ? ….. ISIS

In 2014, she called the Tea Party a “plague on mankind” and punctuated the message with a picture of a bomb:
NOW 4 THE ATROCIOUS #Tbag CESSPOOL! EVEN TETRAPODS WOULDN'T HAVE CRAWLED OUT OF U,THEIR STANDARDS WERE 2 HIGH! U R A PLAGUE ON MANKIND?
— Cher (@cher) April 24, 2014
In 2013, she implied that Tea Party Republicans be killed:

One person reminded Cher:
Dear @cher: To "deep six" people means to kill them – Are you suggesting that people with whom you disagree be killed – Please clarify

In 2012, she also retweeted a message saying that it would be “karma” if Rep. Todd Akin was raped by a man with AIDS.
Kama train 4 [email protected] let Aiken get raped by man with HIV/AIDS.Nothing will happen, right?Body shuts down as defense mechanism Idiots
— Cher (@cher) August 25, 2012
So now she gets upset when someone throws her own rhetoric right back at her. While I certainly do not support the message that was sent, and I apologize to those offended by it, since it’s not the kind of thing I would ever post, I find it curious that Cher, like so many on the left, can apparently dish it out, but can’t take it.
Maybe she’ll think better of it the next time she wants to call Ted Cruz the devil or suggest that those she disagrees with meet with violence.
