After Branding Trump a Fascist, Rick Wilson Calls for Lynching of Fascists

Establishment GOP consultant and Daily Beast columnist Rick Wilson declared his support for lynching on Twitter, Saturday, following a white nationalist rally.

“I like my fascists the old-fashioned way; dead, hanging from lamp-posts as we liberate their victims,” posted Wilson on Twitter, in response to a white nationalist torch-bearing march in Charlottesville, Virginia, which included Richard Spencer.

Wilson did not specify who he considered to be “fascists” in the tweet. However, he has previously branded both President Trump and his supporters with the term.

In 2013, Wilson also used the word to describe President Obama’s “Youth Corps.”

This is not the first time that Wilson has expressed his support for violence against political opponents, and in 2015, Wilson encouraged the GOP establishment donor class to “go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump.”
