Michigan GOP Chair says assassination only way to remove elected GOP officials.

Fellow UM regents decry Michigan GOP chair for assassination, 'three witches' quips

The Detroit News, March 26, 2021

Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser labeled the state's top Democratic officeholders "witches" and referenced "assassination" Thursday when pressed for answers about how to remove two sitting GOP congressmen.

In a video obtained by The Detroit News, Weiser made the comments while taking questions from the audience at a North Oakland Republican Club meeting. The comments quickly drew criticism from Democrats around the state, including at least two fellow regents from the University of Michigan.

Watch the video here.

Someone in the crowd asked how to unseat U.S. Reps. Fred Upton of St. Joseph and Peter Meijer of Grand Rapids Township, who were among 10 House Republicans to support the impeachment of former President Donald Trump in January. The Senate voted to acquit.

THIS IS THE LEADER OF THE MICHIGAN REPUBLICANS — CALLING TOP THREE MICHIGAN DEMOCRATIC WOMEN POLITICIANS “WITCHES” AND WILLING TO GIVE VOICE TO MURDEROUS THOUGHTS REGARDING REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED TO IMPEACH TRUMP.

I wonder if he’s chums with the crowd who wanted to kidnap and murder the Governor?

1. Not only that,

He hinted that they should be burned at the stake!

This misogynistic ass wipe should be forced to resign immediately! Unbelievable. But this is who Republicans are, now.

12. Fascists run the GQP.

Some University of Michigan regents call on Weiser to resign following ‘three witches,’ assassination comments

MLive, March 26, 2021

ANN ARBOR, MI - Some members of the University of Michigan Board of Regents are calling on fellow regent Ron Weiser to resign after comments he made as the head of the state’s Republican Party.

The calls for his resignation came following comments made by Weiser during an event for the North Oakland Republic Club Thursday, March 26, when Weiser called Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson the “three witches” and said the GOP needs to make sure “they are ready for the burning at the stake.” Weiser’s comments were captured in a video shared on social media.

Snip...

Regent Mark Bernstein said Weiser’s comments about Whitmer, Nessel and Benson were sexist and “dangerous, disgusting and damaging” to the state and UM in his call for Weiser to resign.

Bernstein’s statement is included below:

“His reference to Governor Whitmer, Attorney General Nessel and Secretary of State Benson as ‘the three witches’ is blatantly sexist. Suggesting that the work of a political party should enable ‘burning’ these three women ‘at the stake’ is even worse. His reference to the ‘assassination’ of members of Congress in the context of political rhetoric should have no place in any society. And Regent Weiser’s partisan effort to restrict our students’ right to vote damages democracy.

4. That was my first thought too, but

some of his insane rant was directed at gop who voted to impeach "he who shall not be named".

5. Someone in the crowd asked how to unseat U.S. Reps. Fred Upton of St. Joseph and Peter Meijer of

Grand Rapids Township, who were among 10 House Republicans to support the impeachment of former President Donald Trump in January. The Senate voted to acquit.

Weiser responded the party is focused on beating the "three witches" in 2022, apparently referring to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson — the three statewide Democratic leaders who are up for re-election next year.

Then someone in the crowd can be heard asking about the "witches in our own party."

"Ma'am, other than assassination, I have no other way ... other than voting out. OK?" Weiser said. "You people have to go out there and support their opponents. You have to do what you need to get out the vote in those areas. That's how you beat people."

8. There is almost zero chance that the US can sustain this level of extreme (and increasing) division

for more than a decade or two max, without a kinetic civil war breaking out, at least on a scattered basis. The RW are becoming full stop monsters.

10. True, depending on the degree of evil it takes to be classified as a an actual monster (and have it

become the norm for millions, and not the exception.)

There is a critical mass tipping point where a massive wave of systemic violence from coast to coast may well occur. Where that point is is the 150 or so trillion dollar question. (the amount of actual future forward US debt when currently-mandated transfer payments are factored in on a 30 year or so event horizon)

15. Good points, regarding what men do to witches.




Good people respect other people, not hurt them.

As for a man who vocalizes hurting women, he should be monitored for life.

3. Call the U of Michigan at 734-763-5553

This idiot is on the Board of Regents at the University of Michigan - he is calling for violence against women. Everyone needs to boycott the University of Michigan. Women, all minorities, LGBTQ athletes should boycott and sign on with other Universities. Call the U of Michigan at 734-763-5553 to voice your complaint.

13. A Regent of the University of Michigan.

Yet, he thinks like a fascist racist misogynist, the very essence of a modern major Republican.
