Far-right Congressman Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina is one of all too many right wing elected officials embracing the GOP's increasingly violent rhetoric.
In his efforts to promote the lie that the 2020 election was somehow stolen by Democrats engaging in widespread election fraud, Cawthorn has urged Christians to "take our country back" amid what he believes is a "spiritual battle." He's repeatedly referred to the Capitol insurrectionists as "political prisoners." He's foreseen "bloodshed" if elections continue to be "stolen."
Now, Cawthorn is igniting further Republican hysteria by claiming Liberals want to make people "sexless" and "genderless," further threatening to run them over.
"When I see the people in Washington D.C. who are trying to insert their woke politics into our culture, trying to destroy Western civilization, trying to take all of our morality away from everyone, trying to make everyone genderless, sexless, and just absolutely Godless. I realize that the American people are sick and tired of it," he added. "We want our country back, we want our culture back, and if you want to stand in the way that, we will run you over."
The Representative's incendiary comments generated backlash.
Others dismissed Cawthorn's hysteria.
Like all House members, the election for Cawthorn's seat in Congress will take place in November of next year.
