Now to the reason why I have the attention of this person his original tweet and the commentary in their entirety:

Former Rhode Island Representative calls to assault police on twitter

Former Rhode Island Rep. Entrepreneur. Host of The Sentinel Radio Broadcast. #10thAmendment #Libertarian #Constitutionalist #Sovereignty

Obviously this sort of call to violence is stupid and dangerous. What is he thinking to say such a thing?
Caustic stuff there as you see. Calling a political leader stupid and dangerous for advocating violent resistance to police officers.

Yes libel has specific meaning  Libel requires that I lied and I just don't see any lie there. Plus his vaunted position brings with it the burden of criticism from the fourth estate.

He is locking his tweets now so I can't embed them.
But they are easily found. And it is easy to cut and paste:


Dan Gordon @Rep_DanGordon @w4rbler Oh look. A whole flock of simpletons! @Boothie68

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
