For a party that believes itself to exemplify civility, the Democrats certainly harbor a fondness for wishing people dead — especially those who belong to the other major party. In August, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) was overheard saying at, of all things, a prayer breakfast:

The big orange president. … He’s going to come down here and he is going to endorse Marsha Blackburn, because Marsha Blackburn, if he says, ‘Jump off the Harahan Bridge,’ she’ll jump off the Harahan Bridge. I wish he’d say that.

Now the torch has been passed to New York State Sen. Kevin Parker who, you also may recall, proposed that individuals looking to buy a gun be required to submit their social media profiles and three years’ worth of search history.

Despite his conspicuous dislike of violence, Parker responded to a GOP aide who calmly and rightly accused him of abusing his senatorial parking privileges by inviting her to kill herself. Here, embedded in another tweet, is Parker’s over-the-top reaction, which he promptly deleted.

After he had a chance to cool off, Parker tweeted an apology to the aide, whose name is Candice Giove:

But soon after, according to USA Today, Parker was back to his evidently normal uncivil self:

His temper has been on display before:

In 2010, he was convicted of misdemeanor criminal mischief after damaging a camera belonging to a New York Post photographer who was assigned to take photos of him outside his Brooklyn home.
