Tweet of the Day: Dem running for Congress wishes Ebola on NRA members

Tweet of the Day: Dem running for Congress wishes Ebola on NRA members
Mike Dickinson: He really puts the dick in Dickinson

It’s hard to know what part of Mike Dickinson’s Twitter message is the most disturbing. Is it that wishes a deadly disease on people who share a view of firearm ownership that is different from his own, or is that he couches his curse in the form of a fervent prayer to God.

Here is the message posted by the Democratic candidate for Congress from Virginia.

Apparently Dickinson is too arrogant or stupid to have scrubbed the tweet, though I suppose he deserves style points for sticking to his guns (as it were). According to Rare, he responded to some of the backlash from other Twitter users in a Daily Beast interview in which he said:

It’s probably not the nice thing to do. It’s probably not the moral thing to do. But look at all of the stuff that the right wing and the NRA has done that shows no class.

Dickinson knows a lot about showing no class. In July, he made headlines in July for offering money for nude photos of 19-year-old amateur hunter Kendall Jones.
