Leftists are getting more and more extreme with their hateful rhetoric.
They feel morally justified to say and do whatever they want to conservatives.
And this Bruce Springsteen guitarist deleted one disgusting message about Republicans.
E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt has been known to make vile statements aimed at Republicans.
But this time he might’ve crossed the line.
Van Zandt, who also played Silvio Dante on The Sopranos, wrote on Twitter, “Outrageous doesn’t begin to describe the actions of these Republican White Supremacist scumbag cowards and pussies that need guns to feel like real men. Gen Z, Gen Y, Gen X will unite and exterminate these cockroaches once and for all.”

Van Zandt was shamed into deleting the tweet, but he essentially doubled down on the sentiment.
When he was asked why he deleted the original message, he replied, “To avoid spending half my day deleting Foxsucking scumbag Russian bots and MAGOTT cockroaches like you! Go take away some women’s rights, keep some Black people from voting, go harass a Trans event, go shoot some kids, do what Republicans do best and get the f*ck outta my feed!”
One user pointed out that Van Zandt’s dehumanizing language sounded similar to language used to incite the Rwandan genocide.
The user quoted from an Atlantic article that read, “The radio station RTLM, allied with leaders of the government, had been inciting Hutus against the Tutsi minority, repeatedly describing the latter as inyenzi, or ‘cockroaches’…”
Van Zandt claimed he was simply talking about voting, which was an obvious lie.
He wrote, “In this case the phrase was used as symbolism. I know you pathetic MAGotts don’t have the intelligence to recognize that but that’s your problem. Don’t project your mindless violence fantasies on this peace loving hippie. Exterminate at the ballot box was clearly what was meant.”
Because “exterminate at the ballot box” is such a common turn of phrase.
Van Zandt’s screed should serve as a reminder that leftists ultimately want Republicans abolished.
They don’t even hide it.
When a prominent Republican dies, many Democrats—even public figures—rejoice.
Van Zandt’s comments were spurred mainly by the Democrats’ renewed push for gun control.
The so-called mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about the transgender who shot down several children at a Christian school in Nashville – so the narrative has to shift to how terrible Republicans are.
The victims aren’t the six people killed in the mass shooting – the victims are the Democrats.
So every story is contorted to fit into the “Republicans are evil” box, which is how useful idiots like Van Zandt rant about exterminating Republican “cockroaches.”
