Tweet of the Day: Google-funded tech lobbyist says ‘poetic justice’ for Trump to die of coronavirus

On Friday, Breitbart reported that Tech Freedom President Berin Szóka announced his resignation after posting a tweet suggesting it would be “poetic justice” if President Trump were to die of coronavirus.

“Serious question: could there possibly any greater poetic justice in the universe than for Trump to die of the #CPACvirus?” he tweeted on Monday.

He also tweeted this:

As Breitbart noted, “Reps. Doug Collins (R-GA), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) went into self-quarantine after they were exposed to the coronavirus” at the conservative conference.

Breitbart further noted:

Szoka later apologized, saying, “Earlier this week, I sent a thoughtless tweet making an inappropriate comment about the President that I deeply regret. I was wrong to tweet it and deleted it. Again, I apologize.”

Szoka notably spoke to New York Times editor Sarah Jeong in 2019 to combat the notion that social media companies are censoring conservative and alternative voices on the Internet.

In 2014, Jeong tweeted several anti-white statements. The former reporter likened “dumbass fucking white people” who share their opinions to “dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) lambasted Jeong’s op-ed, charging that the New York Times editor sold out to big tech. Hawley noted that Szoka receives donations from Google.

AS I have repeatedly noted since February 2011, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of bloodthirsty rage and hate.  Personally, I’m not surprised to see this come from someone lobbying on behalf of a member of the Silicon Valley Axis of Evil.

Breitbart noted that, “Szoka will take an indefinite sabbatical to write a book on tech policy. Shane Tews, a member of TechFreedom’s board, will take over as president.”
