In an unhinged Twitter rant on Friday, senior Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald said he wants innocent people to suffer and die in order to prove a point about healthcare, the Daily Caller reported. In addition to wanting Republicans suffer the loss of family members, he also said he wants them tortured.
Peter Hasson wrote:
Eichenwald said on Twitter Friday night that he hopes every Republican who voted in favor of the American Health Care Act on Thursday sees a family member come down with a serious “long term” illness and lose their insurance before dying. When challenged, Eichenwald doubled down. “I want them to be tortured,” he said of Republicans who supported the AHCA. He added: “I want the [Republicans] who supported this to feel the pain in their own families.”

He also spread the fake news claim that Republicans celebrated the vote with a beer party.
Eichenwald’s insinuation — that the Republican Obamacare replacement is effectively sentencing Americans to death — is a favorite Democratic talking point that policy experts have said is unsupported by evidence.
Eichenwald is currently suing a man who he said caused him to have a seizure by sending a flashing image to him over Twitter. The FBI arrested the man in connection with the tweet, which Eichenwald said triggered his epilepsy. As reported by The Daily Caller’s Alex Pfeiffer, Eichenwald is looking at bringing similar civil lawsuits against as many as 90 people.
In other words, he’s a typical hate-mongering liberal…
Hasson later said Eichenwald sent him a 482-word statement justifying his hate:
