Radical Rep Backpedals On Violent Comments

Via The Washington Examiner:

A Republican contender against Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar clarified comments calling for her to be hanged after she was banned on Twitter for the threat.

“Treason is the only thing mentioned in the constitution for the death penalty, punishable by hanging or firing squad,” Danielle Stella said Friday on Facebook. “I believe all involved should be thoroughly investigated. I did not threaten anyone. If you are calling it a threat – you believe that individual is guilty, and therefore it is not a threat, it’s treason.”

Stella said she was trying to “clarify” her original comments on Twitter where she said Omar should be “tried for #treason and hanged.”

Stella’s account was permanently banned by Twitter on Wednesday for her comments. “My suspension for advocating for the enforcement of federal code proves Twitter will always side with and fight to protect terrorists, traitors, pedophiles, and rapists,” Stella said in response.
