Congressional Candidate’s Daydream About Killing Liberals Was Just an Elaborate Metaphor


If I could issue hunting permits, I would officially declare today opening day for liberals. The season would extend through November 2 and have no limits on how many taken as we desperately need to ‘thin’ the herd.”

That was Brad Goehring, a candidate for Congress in California, on his Facebook page earlier this week. It was just a “metaphor,” his campaign says. For what, exactly? Honestly, we would love to hear what hunting permits, hunting season, and herd-thinning stand for in this metaphor. Goehring has since taken the remark down, but the memory of its existence will live on through the comments now being left on his wall by angry liberals. Enjoy:

Aram Nathan Sohigian Nice family values from the party of hate and no. Well done. The people know who you are and what you stand for: hate, ignorance and murder. Hope your mom is proud of you. I doubt it.

Dave Abston Hey, asswipe - FUCK YOU.

Fred Dixon Come get me tough guy.

Larry Equality Glinzman PS. Is Jim Hittler your campaign manager? How bout old Martin Bohrman? Still your campaign finance chair?

Jeremy Sawatsky Hey Brad, I’m a liberal, in Fresno. I’m here, bring it on.

Zeb Norris Fuck you asshole. I’m a liberal, and I’m pleased to report that the 2nd ammendment applies to me too. So come after me see what you get… scumwad.
