“Left-wing journalist Kurt Eichenwald tweeted that he wants ‘to find an anti-masker and beat them to death’ and that ‘F***ING ‘Christians’ who don’t wear masks because they believe God is ‘saving’ them from COVID-19 are ‘what Jesus condemns’ and will ‘burn in hell‘,” according to Blaze Media.
“Eichenwald — a New York Times bestselling author who in 2017 wished death on family members of Republican officials who voted for “Trumpcare” — tweeted Wednesday that ‘it’s at a moment like this that I want to find an anti-masker and beat them to death. Since they believe they have the right to kill others, they have surrendered any right to object. #CategoricalImperative.’…
“Eichenwald later added that he’s ‘not planning to kill anyone’ but ‘as the misery descends on our family again, it is hard not to contemplate violence against those who don’t care if they kill.’
“A day later Eichenwald tweeted, ‘I have so much hate in my heart tonight. My sister, widowed by COVID, has COVID because of anti-maskers. About 4,000 died today; GOP says nothing. [Missouri Republican U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley] & his ilk are working to harm America. I wish them & their loved ones all the pain & misery they inflicted on this country.’…
“Eichenwald also blasted ‘F***ING ‘Christians” who don’t wear masks because they believe God is ‘saving’ them from COVID-19, declaring that they are ‘what Jesus condemns’ and will ‘burn in hell.’
“‘You F***ing ‘Christians’ who preen about God saving you from COVID so you don’t need masks. You’re what Jesus condemns,’ he said. ‘You kill with hypocrisy. Read Matthew 25:41-46. If you realize the Bible is about more than hating gays, you’ll realize: For your selfishness, you’ll burn in hell.'”

Please share your thoughts about the statements of Kurt Eichenwald in the comment section on this page. Clearly, Eichenwald is filled with hatred. Even though Eichenwald lost a relative to COVID, is it ever right to wish death on another human being? Is it right to go online and wish harm to other people? What does it say about our society that so many people feel they can sit behind a screen and threaten violence on their fellow man? Is this part of what is tearing our country apart? People who hide behind keyboards and spew hate and violence?
