Congressional candidate Mike Dickinson becomes unhinged on Twitter

dickinsonPerhaps the Twitter account for Mike Dickinson, a Democrat running for Congress in Virginia, was hijacked. The congressional candidate has been relentlessly tweeting in what seems to be an almost desperate plea for attention.

Despite his bizarre Twitter rants, Democrats seem to be enthusiastic about Dickinson’s candidacy,

Within the past 24 hours, Dickinson declared that “the KKK and Tea Party and NRA all one in the same…”

He also claimed that conservatives “want a second class of citizens…”

He also declared that the Tea Party does not want freedom for women.

Dickinson also stated that “Republicans and the Tea Party “want to suppress vote.”

Dickinson’s vitriol is not limited to the Tea Party. He also declared that “a fetus is not a life” and that people who are pro-life “are the true tyrants of America.”

Of course, Dickinson also bashed the National Rifle Association,

The Examiner’s own Joe Newby challenged Dickinson to a debate. Without the ability to name-call, Dickinson will be at a loss. His own website leaves much to be desired as far as his stance on issues is concerned.

Dickinson hysterically claims to want to stop “partisan bickering,”

“…Congress needs to get back to finding solutions to our nation’s problems rather than being stuck in a loop of partisan bickering and crisis management.”

Newby also wrote about Dickinson’s “suggestion” that the FCC monitor Fox News, as reported at the Examiner. Newby quoted the congressional hopeful as saying,

“Fox News does nothing but tell lies and mistruths. They have unqualified political analysts. We need FCC to monitor and regulate them.”
