This is why I have such an ingrained loathing of right-wing conservatives.

State Sen. David Schultheis said he didn't intend for a Twitter post accusing President Barack Obama of "flying the U.S. plane right into the ground" and ending with "let's roll" as a threat or a reference to United Flight 93, which crashed during the 2001 terrorist attacks.
"Let's roll" reportedly were the last words of Todd Beamer before he and other passengers tried to gain control of their hijacked jet. The plane crashed into a Pennsylvania field short of its intended target.
The tweet stirred ire and some support for the Colorado Springs Republican, whose standard eschewal of political correctness has earned him criticism in the past.
Schultheis' full tweet Tuesday was: "Don't for a second think Obama wants what is best for U.S. He is flying the U.S. plane right into the ground at full speed. Let's roll."
Yeah -- cuz you know, President Obama is no different than the scum who deliberately caused the crash of an airliner full of innocent people. This is how creepy the GOP has become since they let the far-right nutcases hijack their party.
Oh -- and this same Rethuglican is noted for this as well (from the same article):
Schultheis voted in February against a bill requiring pregnant women to be tested for AIDS to prevent spreading the disease to the children. He said then that infected children would set examples for women against sexual promiscuity.
Translation: Yeah! Let some kids be born with AIDS -- that'll teach them filthy whores!
The senator railed in January against public service announcements in Spanish encouraging people to fasten seat belts.
Translation: What's that you say? Haven't completely learned English yet? Fuck 'em, let 'em die.
Classy guy ain't he? But you have to admit -- he certainly is the perfect poster-boy for your modern day Republican party isn't he?
