After gun control activist shouted death threats against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home, blaming the Republican lawmaker for the recent mass shootings in Ohio and Texas last weekend, McConnell fired back on Thursday.
In an interview with Kentucky radio station WHAS, McConnell exclaimed the threats and intimidations hurled so-called so justice warriors are inconsequential.
“I have a word for everybody who’s been in the front yard, and everybody who’s trying to get in my space, I will not be intimidated by you people, not a chance,” he said.
“Not a single thing you do is going to alter how I operate on behalf of my constituents and the country for whom I have a significant amount of responsibility,” he added.
As the 77-year old Senate GOP leader recovered from fracturing his shoulder, gun control activists dragged shovels on the ground erupting chaos outside McConnell’s Kentucky home, screaming the Republican senator is a “murder turtle.”
“Just stab the motherfucker in the heart, please,” a female protester is heard saying in footage of the protest.
A man exclaimed during the upheaval that he wished someone had “voodoo doll for these bitches.”
One protester, a reported Sen. Elizabeth Warren supporter, went on a profanity-laced tirade wishing ill upon McConnell’s wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao.
“The bitch is home… we keep seeing the lights go on and off,” one protester said. “This hoe really thought he was going to get ready to be at home after he hurt his little punk ass shoulder. Bitch, don’t nobody give a fuck! Fuck your thoughts and prayers, Mitch. Fuck you, fuck your wife, fuck everything you stand for. ”
Twitter banned McConnell’s campaign Wednesday for sharing a video of the protesters making violent threats against the Senator, including the protester saying “just stab the motherfucker in the heart.” The social media platform, however, had no problem with “Massacre Mitch” trending on the platform.
McConnell on Thursday brushed off a question about
Asked whether his neighbors had asked him to move because of the protests, McConnell said he’s not intimidated by the violent leftists.
“I have plenty of security. I haven’t needed to abandon my house. …Hopefully they’ll behave themselves. I’ve said to my neighbors, ‘it probably isn’t good for property values living next to me,” he said.
