Great Moments in Republican Rebranding: The Horrific Revenge Fantasies of Erick Erickson
Twitter’s 140-character limit can be frustrating, but sometimes it can reveal a person’s real essence in starkly obvious terms. One of those moments happened last night, when RedState kingpin and former CNN contributor Erick Erickson tweeted the following, in a series of rants defending the Duck Dynasty guy’s ugly homophobic/racist comments:
Personally, I’ve always taken comfort in the idea of hell fire — that God truly is just and the unrepentant will be in for a smiting.
It’s the mark of a true fanatic that he’d even think of expressing a horrible vision like this … and worse, attributing it to God. He’s “comforted” by a fantasy that the people he hates will be tortured for all eternity in Hell, and utterly convinced it’s actually going to happen.
That “comforts” him.
