‘Depraved vultures’: Haters, including Bernie Sanders surrogate, use train crash to attack Republicans, hope for death

As our own Faye Higbee reported earlier today, an Amtrak train carrying a number of Republican members of Congress struck a garbage truck, killing the driver. Naturally, hatemongers on Twitter, including Michael Ian Black and Jonathan Tasini, a Bernie Sanders whose bio lists him as a CNN “talking head,” used the fatal crash to attack and mock Republicans.  Many, of course, hoped the crash would kill Republicans.

“Wow, btwn train full of Goopers hitting truck and this, God is working hard today to clean up the stink. Thank her,” Tasini said in a tweet that has since been deleted.

He “apologized” and clarified that he isn’t a CNN contributor:

Twitchy asked: “‘The obvious’ being what? That Republicans kill people?”  Apparently, that’s exactly what Black was saying.  And keep in mind, it was another Bernie Sanders supporter who shot GOP Rep. Steve Scalise.  Liberal media hacks like Joy Reid suggested Scalise deserved to be shot and one Democrat consultant started the hashtag #HuntRepublicans.

Twitchy noted that many others used the crash to attack Republicans:


And more tweets captured for all to see:



If that wasn’t enough, there were idiots who actually blamed the Republicans for the crash:


As I’ve repeatedly said since February 2011, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of insane bloodthirsty hate and rage.  Sadly, leftists like these disgusting pieces of human debris prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.

Keep in mind that this IS the modern left and the main driving force behind the Democrat Party.  And they claim to be “tolerant” and “caring” of all Americans.
