Twitter Users Wish Death And Suffering On John McCain After GOP Tax Bill Passes Senate

[WARNING: The Following Article Contains Strong Language]

After the passage of the GOP tax plan in the United States Senate, some progressives took to social media to target Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who is suffering from brain cancer.

The worst of the worst have pulled out their keyboards to wish death and suffering on McCain because he dared to have a different opinion on governmental operations than they do.

Here are the scummiest tweets against McCain:







At least we get to watch #JohnMcCain die soon.

Why write about these tweets? Because it’s an important reminder that cruelty is often the byproduct of a frustrated lack of understanding. The people that tweeted these terrible things about John McCain likely couldn’t describe to you with any degree of detail the contents and impact of the GOP tax bill. They’ve read angry headlines and blurbs, and have decided — based only on the little they know — that McCain is a monster who deserves suffering because he voted in favor of that which they’ve been told to hate.

As Anton Chekhov wrote: “The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.”
