Thanks, Twitter, you finally suspended somebody for the right reason!
Full disclosure: we’d seen this tweet when it appeared, but when Dana Loesch retweeted it, the guy thanked her for the “signal boost” and really seemed to be getting off on the attention, so we didn’t feel like giving him any more. But now that he’s been suspended, let’s go for it.
As Twitchy has been reporting, this week marked Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit, with speakers including Ambassador Nikki Haley and Sen. Orrin Hatch.
This clown said he was going to the summit to “greet” the nice conservative high schoolers with his barbed wire-covered baseball bat. Here’s a screenshot:
This is the reason for #2A, people like @dudeslater Make it so we can’t have a civil discourse in society. That is too bad, stay ready for anything my friends, and if legal to do so conceal carry to protect yourself. pic.twitter.com/FwS49Z8XLt

Like we said, Dana Loesch called him out:
He seems sincere. https://t.co/CVm5QpSZhv

We're half way through the summit and I haven't seen him yet. Must be stuck in traffic.

Nothing the expenditure of ammunition won’t solve. But why do I think he won’t show? Most liberals are all talk and no action.

Confucius say: Don't bring a baseball bat to a gunfight.

He forgot the golden rule though.. Never bring a bat….to a gunfight.
Silly liberals…..they want to signal a threat, than get mad when they are rebuked or have it spelled out to them – that their intolerance will not be tolerated.

That is really disturbing. And this is a GROWN man doing this.

So he's going after teens with a barbwire covered baseball bat.

Such a man.

Picking on kids and hiding behind a weapon. You are soooo tough!
— Josh Peek (@joshpeekmusic) July 25, 2018
As usual, targeting teenagers. Funny how the threats and hat snatching activities are never directed at grown conservative men, never. How tough they are. ?

I've always found that the best way to convince people you hold the correct viewpoint is to make veiled threats against children. Works every time.

Hey I'm a conservative teenager! You wanna meet me somewhere?

If he hit my kids there wouldn't be a place on earth that he could hide.

I’m betting it would take one swing for him to be out of breath and bent over…

Maybe he’s one of those “gentle giants” like Beauty and the Beast.

I know a couple of big Marines who might "persuade" him to play nice. Or they might just take that toy away.

I’ve got news for him that will be very painful for him where I put it after I take it away from him !

What a perfect representative of the caring, peace-loving left.
