Michigan GOP Chair Calls Gretchen Whitmer, Female Democrats ‘Witches,’ Suggests ‘Assassination’

“…Our job now is to soften up those three witches and make sure we have good candidates to run against them, that they are ready for the burning at the stake,” [Michigan GOP Chair Ron Weiser] told the gathering. Weiser went on to specify that there were three statewide elected positions on which he was focused: the seats held by the governor, secretary of state and attorney general.

Oh, I can hear you saying, “‘Grain, he was obviously joking… he surely was not advocating killing political opponents by burning at the stake!”

Weiser later appeared to jokingly reference assassination when a crowd member asked about “witches in our own party.”

“Other than assassination, I have no other way other than voting,” he responded.

Given how Gov. Whitmer has already faced a kidnapping plot that included death threats, this sort of jocular misogyny isn’t funny. There’s plenty of weak-brained GQPers out there who might take him up on it.

    Yes, joking about witches being burned at the stake. Hilarious. Next, a side-splitting witticism about sending Jewish politicians to the gas chamber.

    Ya know, if these “assassination” statements coming from a prominent public official aren’t criminal, they should be. They are no “joking matter.”
