Dem spox to Cruz staffer: “May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases” [UPDATED]

posted at 2:27 pm on September 20, 2013 by

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Communications Director (!) of the Sacramento, CA Democratic Party, responding to an anti-Obamacare tweet from Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter (content warning):

After doubling-down on hate, Brauer performed an abrupt about-face and apologized:

Reporter Chris Moody solicited a statement on Brauer’s repulsive comments from the state Democratic Party.  It is simply amazing:

The “problem” with wishing death upon a political opponent’s children, you see, is that it lets “fringe” characters like Sen. Ted Cruz “off the hook.”  Remarkable.

UPDATE – This guy just keeps digging. His responses to, and about, women are especially vile.

UPDATE II – The Sacramento Dems aren’t answering their phones. I called the state party to ask if they think Brauer should be fired, and to challenge them on their official statement. I was transferred to voicemail by the receptionist, who told me the lines were “flooded” and “going crazy right now.” Today might end up being a very bad day for one Allan Brauer.

UPDATE III – Who’s up for some mass murder, while we’re at it?

Your list of demands it a publicity stunt

“The Corps is just starting to grapple with the issues the court has identified.”

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?

“I mean he sold our country to The Russians.”

I could think of someone else you might want to ask about…
