(TheConservativeNews.org) – Comedian Kathy Griffin posted a tweet on Tuesday declaring that people who do not want the U.S. to descend into civil war should support Democrats during the 2022 midterm election, while those who want a civil war should back the GOP.
“If you don’t want a Civil War, vote for Democrats in November. If you do want Civil War, vote Republican,” Griffin tweeted.
Some on social media suggested that Griffin’s post represented a threat, though the comedian pushed back against that idea.
Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, slammed the tweet, claiming it is an indictment of the American progressive movement at large.
“This is WRONG. Crazy Hollywood Leftie threatening ‘Civil War’ if Dems don’t win. Sadly, this is today’s Left: angry, hateful & violent,” he tweeted.
Author and commentator Michael Malice responded by rejecting a civil war, but suggesting that America does need to peacefully separate.
“I don’t want to change your mind or argue with you, but I don’t want to share a country with you either. A peaceful divorce leaves everyone better off,” he tweeted.
Talk show host Jeremy Kappell warned, “The inherent message here couldn’t be more clear. If you don’t vote Democrat, there will be war. King George III had a similar message for the colonists just prior to our Independence. Don’t be bullied by Hollywood Propagandists.”
Griffin has made headlines in the past for posting a photo multiple times of her holding a bloodied, decapitated replica of then-President Trump’s head.
Ron Bassilian replied to Griffin’s “Civil War” tweet on Tuesday by sharing that bloody head photo and commenting, “We had your civil war for six years now. We’re used to it.” Griffin responded by posting clown emojis.
Griffin’s latest rhetoric is that of a literal domestic terrorist, not to mention her outright voter intimidation against all Americans.
