GOP State Lawmaker Shares Meme Encouraging Cars to Hit Protesters
Republicans just can’t stand people who don’t agree with them, so it’s OK to run them down in the street because disagreeing with conservatism automatically makes you evil in their books.After all you could be Antifa (shudder!) or Black block… In their Topsy-Turvy universe liberals are the Elite, and pirate capitalist billionaires are the downtrodden, people demonstrating for basic human rights are the evil ones who deserve cavalier death on sight.
A Republican state legislator in South Dakota apologized Tuesday after sharing a meme on Facebook that appeared to encourage people to hit protestors with vehicles.
Under the headline “All Lives Splatter,” the cartoon showed a car apparently hitting people in the street and said “nobody cares about your protest” and “keep your ass out of the road.”
Her caption above the image said “I think this is a movement we can all support,” according to local newspaper, the Argus Leader.
After local progressive groups shared the image and asked for an apology from the lawmaker, Rep. Lynne DiSanto deleted the post and said she “perceived it as encouraging people to stay out of the street.”
