Remember all the GOP outrage over American citizens confronting Trump’s sycophants in public over issues like babies being taken from their desperate mothers and held in cages? Fox News went on for days over that, calling Democratic voters out as violent mobs threatening the very lives of their elected lawmakers.
You’ll never hear the same outrage, or even any reporting, of the death threats sent to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) or Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). Instead, they’re stoking the hatred of people like the man who called Rep. David Cicilline (D-NY) after the release of the Mueller report.
This is a voicemail I got after speaking out on the Mueller report.
Our democracy is too important to let the bullies win.

Cicilline shared that voicemail on his Twitter account on Friday, showing the ugly face of Trump supporters who protest an opposing opinion.
‘Just a message for the corrupt, treasonous piece of sh*t, f*cking Congressman Cicilline. F*ck you, you traitor. I cannot wait until you’re rotting in a cell in Gitmo. F*ck you.’
The Mueller report detailed all of the incredibly harmful acts Donald Trump has committed related to obstruction of justice and election interference, which he facilitated by knowing that it was happening and expecting to benefit from it without reporting it to the FBI. The numerous harms Trump has committed against the American people with his hateful, vile rhetoric, which has brought out the absolute worst in the people who support him.
Trump’s supporters are not above using violence, death threats, and hatred against those who disagree with them. Democratic voters, who Trump and Fox News painted as violent and suppressors of free speech, confronted their lawmakers in the face of a crisis of humanity. Who exactly poses the bigger concern?
Twitter offered their support for Cicilline and their condemnation of this kind of vile rhetoric. Read some of their comments below:
