It’s become pretty common for Democrats to get away with things Republicans never could. This is especially true on social media, where for years Democrats have spread lies, hate, and conspiracy theories without fear of being censored. But the second a conservative posts something the left doesn’t like, they are banned from the platform.
Perhaps that’s why some Democrats thought it was okay to post something that was not only disgusting, but against the law. The official Twitter account of the Missouri Democrat Party decided they should call out a Trump supporter who committed the grave sin of hanging posters on his front lawn. And, to the shock of millions, they called on locals to do this to their fellow Americans.
The Missouri Democrat Party used its official Twitter account to openly call for someone to burn down a Trump supporter’s house.
Flagged by Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), the tweet from the Missouri Democrats was responding to a question from Jon Cooper about a house draped in Trump flags.
“What would you do if this was your next-door neighbor?” Jon Cooper asked.
“The roof, the roof is on [fire emoji]. We don’t no water, let insert your word’ burn!” the Missouri Democrats responded.
The tweet has since been deleted with no formal apology made. Josh Hawley flagged the tweet with a screenshot.
“Here’s the Missouri Democrat Party advocating for a Trump supporter’s home to burn down. Sick. There’s no place for this kind of disgusting, violent rhetoric in Missouri,” he tweeted. [Source: Breitbart]

Tell me again who are the real threats to democracy? You’ll never see a conservative calling for the burning down of a Biden supporter’s house. Yet an official Democrat Party account can do this–with no penalties?
We guarantee that if a Republican account had posted this, they would not only have been banned from Twitter–but they would have been eviscerated in the media. CNN would do cover stories about this. MSNBC would be calling for the indictment of every last Republican, over a tweet like this.
Yet Democrats, for years, have advocated for violence against Republicans, with zero consequences. And some people have obeyed their calls. A gunman almost kill a group of Republican lawmakers in 2017 during a baseball game practice. Numerous Republican senators have been attacked at restaurants and public events.
A man even tried to break into the house of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, over his support to end Roe v. Wade.
This never happens against Democrats by Republicans. Only the other way around. Yet Republicans are the ones called “dangerous,” “violent,” and “bigoted.”
Give me a break.
