The debate over the destruction of confederate statues is raging and more bigots are crawling out from under their rocks and flocking to the defense of the Confederacy.
Missouri State Representative Warren Love (R) shared an article on Facebook about the vandalization of a Confederate statue and said, “This is totally against the law. I hope they are found & hung from a tall tree with a long rope.”

“That was an exaggerated statement that, you know, a lot of times is used in the western world when somebody does a crime or commits theft,” Love said when asked about the comments, reports The Hill. “That’s just a western term and I’m very much a western man. … You know, I wear a coat. You know, I dress western. And, you know, I’m the cowboy of the Capitol.”
Love should resign. Not only did he make overt calls for racist violence, he remains unrepentant. A man like this has no place in government.
