Former Obama Official Dreams Up Obituaries for Pence, Ryan, Other Republicans

Rebel Staff

Ben Rhodes, the former Deputy National Security Advisor to Barack Obama, has found himself in hot water after he took to Twitter to say he is looking forward to the obituaries of various prominent Republicans who were photographed with President Donald Trump celebrating the passing of a historic tax reform bill. 

It all started when former Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer tweeted out the following photo:

Rhodes soon responded on Twitter as well:

Whatever happened to, "when they go low, we go high?"

Republicans immediately let Rhodes know that he had gone too far. Speaker Paul Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong called his tweet "irresponsible and dangerous." House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, who was shot just a few months ago by a deranged left-winger, also fired back at Rhodes:

Unfortunately, this kind of violent rhetoric against Republicans has become all-to-common among the leftwing. Republicans were accused of racism by the left if they so much as criticized Barack Obama, so effective "death wishes" to the Obama administration like the one Rhodes just posted would have been met with floods of backlash. 

As Scalise and Strong both indicated, statements like this are incredibly dangerous. This was shown earlier this year, when a crazed leftwing gunman opened fire on GOP congressmen as they practiced for a baseball game, seriously injuring Scalise and four others. The gunman could easily have been inspired by leftwing rhetoric that has vilified Republicans. Sadly, this just goes to show how divided our country has become thanks to increasingly-unhinged progressives.

You know the Lieberals (DEMONCRAPS) are desperate when they resort to what they’ve been doing for over a the past year . This is just a slightly uglier side of them.

We are not allowed to say the same thing about our PM. I’d much prefer him to be voted out of office because it means the great amount of people disliked, distained, or absolutely hated the prancing selfie boy. The left should adopt the same attitude.

Well, we all know how evil it is ti allow taxpayers to keep their money in their own pockets. After all it really belongs to the gubberment so the Dems can do all their vote buying good. Look at all they have accomplished in Washington DC, Detroit, Chicago, LA… Well once socialism is correctly enacted it will all be sweetness and light. That SOB Trump is all that stands in the way with his heartless tax reforms.

My God how far we have degenerated as a society… Could you imagine even 20 years ago of somebody the likes of Ben Rhodes posting something like this?!?..

The left is so enlightened.

There’s only one word for this kind of rhetoric…. EVIL!!!

I think this is a perfect representation of all the democratic and liberal minded voters, in the US and Canada.
And to think no one even had to probe this guy to say this. He did it all on his own.

… Behaviour that you wouldn’t even consider from the Right. Would there ever have been calls for the death of Obama’s or Trudeau’s assistants? No. We lose an election, we prepare for winning the next.
… That de-humanised sickness is exclusively the domain of the Left. They will reap what they have sown.

The IQ of a Democrat or Socialist is easily determined by the slush they Tweet. This latest example is almost a death threat.

Quite a number of Dems are unhinged…too bad their families don’t insist they get help!
