On Wednesday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Free Press, a left-wing group funded by the Center for American Progress and George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, submitted a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that included a comment advocating the murder of Republicans.
“Are we going to have to shoot Republican[s] to reclaim our democracy?” the group asked in their letter.
Matthew Foldi added:
The Free Press letter, which called on the FCC to “investigate its own history of racism and examine how its policy choices and actions have harmed black people and other communities of color,” was signed by just under 5,000 of the group’s members, who were given the opportunity to provide comment along with their signature. The call to “shoot” Republicans came from a California member named David Lyons, who further complained that “racist horseshit like FOX and the other ultraconservative outlets and Christians” owned “most of our media.”
Free Press formally withdrew the petition after FCC commissioner Brendan Carr said its inclusion of violent rhetoric was disqualifying.
“The only action the FCC should take on a request like this—one based on a comment asking whether Republicans should be shot—is to dismiss it with prejudice,” Carr told the WashingtonFree Beacon. “The FCC should not endorse this type of call for violence by opening an FCC proceeding on it.”
Free Press says it “deeply regrets that this incident occurred” and pledged to “take measures in the future to closely review public comments to ensure that this never happens again.”
But, the report adds, this isn’t the first time the group has engaged in this type of rhetoric.
“If ‘civility’ demands we STFU & politely welcome white supremacists from this Administration who are committing atrocities & violence against our communities, then FUCK civility,” said CEO Jessica González, who reportedly has a long history of this type of rhetoric.
The group did not respond to a request for comments, the Free Beacon said, and resubmitted the letter without the comments.
In February 2011, I first opined that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Sadly, liberals prove that assertion to be true on just about any given day. It’s enough to make one believe they really do want a second bloody civil war in America.
