Politico Writer Shares Gif of Himself Burning American Flag

After Breitbart News had reported on Politico magazine writer Ian Murphy’s Twitter meltdown where he said former President Ronald Reagan “bleep Satan in hell,” Murphy tweeted out a gif of himself burning an American flag.



“Some of you folks are unfairly questioning my patriotism,” Murphy tweeted with a link to the animated image. “So here I am on a very typical Tuesday evening.”

Soon after, he riffed on an earlier tweet where he taunted a critic, saying, "Reagan bleep Satan in Hell":

    @rapidcraft Correction: Satan bleep Reagan in hell. Reagan's a total demon-bottom. I hear.

Politico had published a screed from Murphy in its new magazine this week, in which he recounts how he prank-called Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker pretending to be one of the Koch Brothers. When Politico published Murphy’s reporting, it was lending its media platform to someone who raged against the concept of societal respect for the U.S. military.

In a 2008 piece titled "bleep the Troops," Murphy argued that anecdotal evidence of misbehavior by American soldiers should be universalized to a general disrespect of the military. He specifically complains that in the public's view, "there are only bad apples, never bad orchards." Sprinkled in the text are casual references to service members as rapists, "rubes," and murderers—while describing amputee veterans as having "cool robotic limbs."

Politico has not responded to inquiries from Breitbart News on whether the publication was aware of Murphy's anti-military article before printing his anti-Walker article.

A real he-man. I'm sure he would enjoy it if a few of our military veterans, aka rapists, "rubes," and murderers, happened to greet him to share their opinion of his writings.

The world has indeed passed me by. I am alive, but this isn't my world, I am the proverbial stranger in a strange land.

My initial anger at reading what this moron has to say has morphed into a kind of resigned disgust.

If he did that in my presence, even at my advanced age, one of you would have to come and get me out of jail!

If he did that in my presence, they'd have to find his drivers license to ID him.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

He looks a little bit like Blutarsky in Animal House, only more sloppy.



"Mr. Blutarsky... zero... point... zero".

Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

Liberals behaving in their usual depraved manner.
