Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 28, 2020

A Texas man upset with President-elect Joe Biden's victory was arrested this week for threatening to set a pastor on fire because he was enraged by the news that Pope Francis had congratulated Biden. Local news station News 4 San Antonio reports that 55-year-old William Edward Bender was arrested after emailing multiple threats to members of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit and Kids of the Kingdom Episcopal School in which he repeatedly expressed a desire to murder Democrats. In one email, Bender attached a link of the pope's statement congratulating Biden and then wrote, "This is how you get priest covered in gasoline, and set on fire."

At first I thought he wanted to set the priest on fire to stop the Vietnam War.

Tis may help explain why my local Republican Representative won't acknowledge Biden. Pleas to be polite and do the right thing can't stand against threats of being burned alive.

"This is how you get priest covered in gasoline, and set on fire."

Has Trump offered to pay his legal bills yet?

Maybe Kyle Rittenhouse can help him with his GoFundMe!

Sounds like he took some pointers from Darrell Issa.

This is why he should acknowledge Biden. Crackpots who make these kinds of threats need to be culled out and institutionalized.

Proof the Trumper is ignorant: He's supposed to set himself on fire in protest. That's the way it's done.

We all know Republicans are into some weird ----...
But it's pretty kinky (and also pretty damn gay) to light your farts on a burning priest!

"You want priests getting covered in gasoline, and set on fire? Because this is how you get priest covered in gasoline, and set on fire,"

Wait, so a republican wanted to punish Episcopalians for something the Pope said? Sounds right for these uneducated idiots.

Nah.

He is simply mulling over the best course of action in accord with his religious beliefs.

If Native Americans can break the law and use Peyote because of religious beliefs; if Hobby Lobby can break the law and deny health insurance that covers contraception because of religious beliefs, then who is to say he can't do what his religious beliefs demand?

This Supreme Court certainly won't be stopping him.

Keep your distance from any car or truck with military honorary plates or DV plates especially in Texas. I've observed them driving wreckless unprovoked. And instigating violence towards anyone they deem not a Trump supporter. They try to cut you off. Force you off the road and excessive speeding. At one time Trump had a billboard posted sayin he creates jobs and Biden creates mobs. Obviously it's the opposite!

Not only is he a --------, but someone needs to also tell him HE'S supposed to self-immolate for it to count as a protest.

I mean, it's just status quo, right?

www.foxnews.com

All those "peaceful protests" weren't so peaceful, as everyone knows accept Libs who can't accept reality. Anyways, if it's OK for Liberals to loot, riot, and kill...why isn't it acceptable for Cons? When Liberals finally accept their part in hurting things more than helping, maybe we can start towards real recovery and acceptance in this country. Until then, Liberals will continue to accept all acts of violence and hatred done by their own people but admonish the same thing done by those who have different opinions. All of the facts and research is out there at your fingertips. Don't just read headlines.
