Allan Brauer, the communications chair of the Democratic Party of Sacramento County, wished death on the children of a Ted Cruz speechwriter today.
@amandacarpenter May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
Busy blocking the tapeworms that have slithered out of hellspawn @amandacarpenter’s asshole. How’s your day so far?— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
Brauer is unapologetic, and tried to justify his wish that Carpenter’s children die by citing “the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans.”
I’m being attacked on Twitter for wishing one of Ted Cruz’s pubic lice to experience the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans.— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
Yes, your party takes bread from the mouths of starving children and medicine from the sick, and I’m the problem. Got it.— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
National Review Online tried to call the Democratic Party of Sacramento, but reached an answering machine.
Brauer is still defensive.
And then the entire universe of hateful, child-starving, health-care deniers determines that I’m what’s wrong with America.— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
UPDATE: Brauer has apologized. Carpenter has accepted his apology.
Hi @amandacarpenter I am truly sorry for my tweet. I was very upset and lashed out. Your kids are not fair game either. My apologies.— allanbrauer (@allanbrauer) September 20, 2013
Tenoch Flores, spokesman for the California Democratic Party, told Yahoo! News political reporter Chris Moody that such rhetoric “lets fringe characters” like Ted Cruz “off the hook” and that it was “never acceptable to wish physical harm against political opponents, regardless of how objectionable their policy priorities are.”
