David Barton Says The Scalps Of Republican State Senators Who Voted For Gay Marriage In New York ‘Should Be Hanged On The Gallery Rail’
David Barton, leader of the right-wing group, Wallbuilders, thinks that the four GOP state Senators who voted to pass gay marriage in New York should be scalped. He also warned that “Ken Mehlman and his kind [will] come in and start rewarding these guys for going against pro-family stuff.” Right Wing Watch reported that after an interview with the President of the National Organization for Marriage, Barton stated the following.
“I want to see pro-family guys scared straight that are squishy on this issue, and if we can’t take out these four Republicans and the Majority Leader in New York, we will have opened a huge door for Melhman and his kind to come in and start rewarding these guys for going against pro-family stuff, and you just can’t let that happen …
“No disrespect to our Native American friends, but this is where you hang a bloody scalp over the gallery rail. You hang these four Republican scalps over the Senate rail and every other Republican senator looks up and sees those scalps and says, ‘my gosh, I’ll be hanging up there beside them if I don’t stay with this pro-family stuff.’ And that’s exactly what has to happen.”
Ken Mehlman is the former head of the RNC and George W. Bush campaign chief who recently revealed that he is gay.
Barton is the founder of Wallbuilders, a Texas-based group that seeks to destroy separation of church and state and is notorious for distorting history to suit Barton’s own belief that America is a Christian state that should govern with Bible law. He has also falsely claimed that the Founding Fathers were Christians and made up fake quotes in an attempt to make his claims credible.
This is just another example of how extreme the right-wing has become. It is now clear that violence is acceptable to them if it advances their goal of getting everything their own way, whether the American people like it, or not. What the right-wing basically wants to do is purge Republicans that do not agree with the entire conservative agenda. And apparently killing them is a viable purging technique. So just to keep count here, the right-wing now wants to kill blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, immigrants, liberals, homosexuals, AND Republicans that disagree with the grand agenda to terrorize America.
