Political lightweight and Virginia candidate for Congress Mike Dickinson has once again said something stupid in an effort to rile up the right. On Sunday, Dickinson took to his Twitter account to blast members of the NRA as “terrorists” and wish that they succumb to the Ebola virus.
“Dear god (sic). Please use Ebola to infect the @NRA and it’s various members. For they are A (sic) true virus and true terrorists in America,” he wrote.
Dickinson made headlines in July for
being an asshole offering money for nude photos of 19-year-old amateur hunter Kendall Jones.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Dickinson took a shot at the NRA while trying to justify his actions towards Jones.
“It’s probably not the nice thing to do,” he said. “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.”
Editor’s note: Dickinson is not endorsed by the Democratic Party. He identifies as a “Left wing liberal” in his Twitter bio.
