Conservative radio host Andrea Shea King recently said on her show that congressmen who planned to skip Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s congressional address on Tuesday should “pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol,” Right Wing Watch reported on Monday.

King’s comments were made last month on her radio program, “The Andrea Shea King Show,” according to RWW.

She noted that most of the congressmen missing the speech are members of the Congressional Black Caucus. King said that members of Congress, unlike President Obama, will eventually be up for reelection and “could pay with their jobs.” However, in audio posted by Right Wing Watch, King said she hoped their punishment would go one step further.

“I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol building,” King said in the audio clip. “Most of those members who are opting out of attending the speech are members of the Congressional Black Caucus. And their districts are all dumb clucks. Because the dumb clucks wouldn’t be electing these people if they knew better.”

King continued her rant against these members of Congress and the “stupid people out there” who are endangering Americans’ lives.

“Stupid. Stupid people,” King said. “Our lives are on the line and all they can think of is skin color. You know — all of us are gonna turn black if we end up in a cage on fire. Stupid people.”

    Because that’s what you do with black congress members, right? Hang 'em?

  2. Why is it that Conservatives seem to love killing people for disagreeing with their view of the world?

    Okay. No discourse, civil or otherwise, with her. She can retreat back into the hole she came out from.
