John Carburruvius called for NRA members to be shot dead.
Carburruvius tweeted this out after the Sandy Hook School shootings.
“Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?”
John Carburruvius is a Democrat precinct committeeman in Bay Area Houston. He is a well-known Democrat in the state, worked on Noriega for US Senate campaign. He also SERVES ON THE TEXAS STATE DEMOCRAT COMMITTEE. On Friday he urged his twitter followers to murder NRA members and anyone who supports them. The Examiner reported:
On Sunday, we reported that liberals on Twitter called for the murder of NRA members. One of those making the calls was identified Sunday as John Cobarruvias, a blogger, Democratic precinct chairman in the Houston area and a member of the Texas Democratic Executive Committee. “Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?” he tweeted.
After reading about the tweets on another site, Yvonne Larsen noticed a familiar name.
“Among the selection of tweets advocating for the murder of NRA President Keene and all NRA members was a name familiar to me; probably familiar to many readers of Houston’s Liberal blog sites,” she wrote at Big Jolly Politics.
Larsen said she “pasted a screen shot from the Freedom’s Outpost story in case NASA employee and Democrat Precinct 699 Chair John Cobarruvias of the Houstonblog Bay Area Houston tries to delete his tweet.”
“You are an embarrassment to precinct chairs everywhere – and Americans. You sound like the next crazed shooter,” one person tweeted in response.
Ironically, after calling for the deaths of NRA members and their defenders, Cobarruvias called the NRA domestic terrorists.
On Saturday, he posted a comment on his Facebook page asking NRA members to “un-friend” him and issued a disturbing message.
“They need to [be] wiped off the face of the earth,” he wrote, speaking of the NRA and those who support owning guns.
“Personsally if they were wiped off the planet it wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit,” he wrote in another comment.
Update: Cobaruvvias now says his tweet was not a death threat. He issued an apology and deleted the message, but his Facebook post is still live.
The state Democratic Party had very little to say about Cobaruvvias’ tweet.
“The Democratic Party never condones violence in our society,” the state Party told Examiner in an email, and told KTRK that “everyone wishes they could take back something they’ve said.”
No doubt, if a Republican issued a tweet that suggested supporters of a liberal cause be shot, the entire Democrat-media complex would be calling for blood until the offender resigned. A Democratic Party leader, however, apparently can get by with an “apology.”
