Amanda Carpenter, an aide who once worked for Sen. Jim DeMint and has now joined with Senator Ted Cruz to spread lies and deceit about ObamaCare, experienced some rather low and unnecessary backlash from a high profile Democrat.
Amanda shared a heated exchange with Allan Brauer, the communications chair of the Democratic Party of Sacramento County. In one of her tweets, Amanda praised the work of Ted Cruz, saying “GOP beat gun control, changed Obama’s mind on Syria, is holding the line on amnesty. We can defund Obamacare, too!” To which, Allan Brauer responded, “May your children all die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases.”
Following the tweet, Mr. Brauer experienced some backlash from others on twitter, causing him to issue the following tweet defending his stance – “being attacked on Twitter for wishing one of Ted Cruz’s pubic lice to experience the pain her boss is inflicting on Americans.”
I certainly disagree with Ted Cruz and all he stands for, so chances are my views align more with Allan Brauer. But I cannot understand or defend the unthinkable hate that came from Mr. Brauer in response to Mrs Carpenter’s tweet. No matter what we feel about the opposition, we must still realize that certain commentary cannot be accepted in a civilized society.0
