Uncivil Liberties

Loring Wirbel, a boardmember of the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado had the following to say:

“The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before Election Day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force…”

He is from Colorado Springs and the CSPD says they're not going to investigate... his post is covered by free speech.  Of course if he was a conservative those would be "terroristic threats".

"It was intended totally as a joke," Wirbel said. "They are taking that stuff out of context. It's smear politics."

Just keep digging...

“But see, most people don’t even know what reason is. They don’t use anything other than the lower brain,” Wirbel wrote, “and would no more make decisions based on logical conclusions than choose milk based on a theme song. The base of the Republican Party is unfamiliar with a cortex.”

In separate posts, the ACLU board member wrote that Trump is engaging in “extreme fear-mongering,” adding he’s a “hate-speech felon who should be in prison.”  Hmmm... I don't recall Trump threatening to shoot people.
