Mike Dickinson, the Virginia Democrat who wants the seat held by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., despite not being on the ballot, spent Monday morning calling Tea Party members terrorists and traitors on Twitter, while pining for the Civil War, a bloody conflict that pitted Americans against each other.
“Im (sic) proud of America. Our great military beat the first terrorists, the first traitors; the confederates,” he began.
He then fantasized about living during the time of the Civil War.
“I wish everyday I had a chance to live in the time period of the civil war- I would have loved help to destroy the confederacy,” he said.
He then called members of the Tea Party terrorists. He also claimed to be “leading the charge” against the Tea Party and Fox News.
“Instead I live in 2014- and instead of confederate terrorists we have tea party terrorists. Im (sic) leading the charge to destroy them and fox,” he tweeted.
