Tea Party Leader Hopes Five Supreme Court Justices Get Colon Cancer
Mike Malzone is founder of the Merrimack Tea Party.
…said Thursday in a Facebook post reacting to the Supreme Court ruling on health care, “I hope the (5 supremes) get colon cancer.”
A day after posting the message, Malzone said he stands by what he said. He clarified that he doesn’t want anyone to die, and the cancer reference was more to make a point that he wants them to feel the pain being inflicted on Americans being overburdened by taxes.
“I didn’t wish for anyone to die, but I said I do wish for them to feel our pain,” he said. “No one cares about me, they all make their promises and then go do what they goddamn feel.”
…Malzone later apologized for his heated rhetoric, saying in part, “I can’t believe how angry I was. But it is what it is. I apologized to Merrimack Tea followers for my language.”
