Unhinged ‘Republican’ White House Hopeful John Castro Advocates Violence Against Trump Supporters: ‘Show Up With Bats’

New Yorkers! If they try to January 6th a NY Courthouse, show up with bats! Time to put these Maga MFers in their place! I’m donating $1 million toward ARMED security. No more fkn around. If we’re gonna take this prick down, we have to do it together,” he exclaimed.

He wasn’t finished.

And this one in reply to a critic:
