ACLU Board Member Says Trump Supporters Should Be Shot

Has an ACLU board member crossed a very bad line? Loring Wirbel, of Colorado Springs, allegedly posted on his Facebook page a demand that Trump supporters be shot before they can vote for him.

Liberals are taking their war on leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to a new level–beyond calls to assassinate Trump–with a call to shoot his supporters before they can vote for him!

“The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.”

Loring Wirbel, a board member of the Colorado ACLU and co-chair of Colorado Springs chapter, is reported to have posted on Facebook a screed that said Trump supporters should be shot. The Daily Caller and Twitchy reported on and made screen grabs of Wirbel’s post and professional positions.

… Loring Wirbel told KRDO-TV he did not post the comments–that they were cobbled together from other posts he made and then photoshopped–but that he’s learned he needs to be more careful in what he posts online.

It’s entirely plausible that he didn’t post it, just as it’s plausible that he did. But let’s think about who the real winner in this situation is: none other than Donald Trump himself. Such a post does nothing more than galvanize his supporters and whip them into an outraged frenzy… likely the opposite result that Wirbel would have hoped for.
