Death Threat Democrat Declares Greg Abbott To Be A "Twittidiot" For Staffer's Error

The explosive hypocrisy of this one is astounding.

After all, the blogger and Democrat activist John Cobarruvias tweeted and Facebooked death threats to NRA leaders and members right after Newtown and has a long history of racist, sexist, ageist, homophobic and anti-disabled rhetoric.

But I'm not surprised he blogged on this kerfuffle.

First RedState’s Erick Erickson called state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, ‘Abortion Barbie” in the wake of her filibuster against tighter abortion restrictions and the resulting national profile that has her mulling a race for governor.

Now there is a “thanks for your support” from the Twitter feed of Attorney General Greg Abbott, the top GOP contender for governor, to a backer who called Davis “Retard Barbie.”

* * *

The tweet from @jefflegal said, “@GregAbbott_TX would absolutely demolish idiot @WendyDavisTexas in Gov race – run Wendy run! Retard Barbie to learn life lesson.”

Abbott responded, “Jeff, thanks for your support.”

Abbott later posted, “FYI: I thank supporters on Twitter, but I don’t endorse anyone’s offense language. Stay positive”

Now let's be honest -- Abbott probably is not the individual who sent out "thank you" tweet. It was probably some staffer who didn't read the entire thing before sending the canned response. Abbott has better things to do with his time.

But that didn't stop the former Texas State Democratic Executive Committee member from writing this.

You would think that someone like Abbott who is disabled, even though it was because of his own lack of judgement, would be very sensitive to those with disabilities whether it is physically or mentally. Abbott obviously either needs a new social media director, needs to get off of Twitter, or needs to apologize.

But Abbot is a teabagger and this is what teabaggers do. F*&^ing twittidiot.

If John had any judgement at all, he would not have hit the button to publish that, given his own history as a twitterrorist. After all, for the rhetorically violent and ethically challenged blogger to declare an accomplished individual like Greg Abbott to be a "twittidiot" is astounding after these tweets sent out back in December.


Oh, yeah -- and his Facebook post.


If I had put those out to the world a few months back, I don't know that I'd be critiquing the tweets sent out in anybody's name. But that's Johnny for you -- no judgment and no class rolled into one violent, hate-mongering, profanity-laced ball of hypocrisy. After all, he has a history of calling a Democrat woman (and a minority Democrat woman at that) a "retard" (scroll to last comment on the thread).

UPDATE: Just got reminded by a fan that John was ranked as the #2 deleted tweet of the year 2012 by the folks at Twitchy. One more reason that the twitterrorist over at Bay Area Houston has no business deciding who is a "twittidiot"?
