On Saturday, talk show host Montel Williams said he’d be perfectly okay with using the National Guard to kill members of a militia group that occupied an empty federal building in Oregon.
He also said he’s “fine” with using deadly force to take out Ammon Bundy, one of those involved in the incident.
So much for due process. Apparently, Williams thinks it’s okay to use the military to kill an American if he disagrees with his or her politics.

He also claimed the group is trying to overthrow the government by occupying an empty building in the Oregon wilderness to justify his calls for the death penalty. But the law he cited doesn’t call for death — it calls for fines and imprisonment.
Naturally, his tweets didn’t sit too well with many.
.@Montel_Williams What the fuck is wrong with you? Death for occupying an empty visitor's center? You're a betrayal to your oath.

@Montel_Williams and should this be the same response the next time blm takes over a public space?

An even better question.
Williams isn’t the only person to wish death on the militia members who occupied the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, located some 50 miles southeast of Burns, Oregon.
New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait also said on Twitter that he would vote to kill those who occupied the building. He walked back the tweet and later said he really didn’t want anyone dead.
Williams, however, has not stepped back from his violent tweets.
It’s enough to make one think liberals really do want a second bloody civil war in America…
