BLM Group Demands Dem Operative Resign for Wishing Death on Lindsey Graham
A Rhode Island-based Black Lives Matter PAC called for the Democratic Party leader to resign after wishing Senator Lindsey Graham to die when he contracted COVID.
Rhode Island Democratic Party leader and strategist Kate Coyne McCoy tweeted the hostile comment on Graham after learning he contracted COVID-19 despite being vaccinated. The Republican Senator has campaigned for Americans to get the shot to help speed an end to the pandemic.
"It is wrong to hope that he will die of Covid, isn't it? Asking for a friend. #CovidIsNotOver #LindseyGraham, “tweeted Coyne-McCoy.
The Black Lives Matter Rhode Island arm criticized McCoy's comments as "extremely tasteless and insensitive" and promptly asked her to step down.
"Regardless of political affiliation, disregard for human life is unacceptable and should not be tolerated anywhere within a political party," commented the organization. "How can we trust someone with such blatant disregard for human life to do the will of RI voters?"
"The BLM RI PAC urges RI Governor Dan McKee and House Speaker Joseph Shekarchi to demand their immediate resignation as these views should never be accepted regardless of political affiliation," the group added.
McCoy was widely convicted for her testimony, leading her to delete it and apologize on Twitter the next day. "I made a mistake," she said. "I used poor judgment, which I obviously regret."
And it is not the first time that she has wished her political opponents dead. In March 2020, in response to a picture from the Republican legislature, she commented, "I'm not proud of my gut reaction which is 'I hope they all die'" ".
Given Graham being quarantined for ten days with a mild diagnosis of COVID, incapacitating him for Congressional proceedings, his absence could result in a delayed vote of nearly $ 1 trillion on the Senate's pending infrastructure package. Graham was one of 67 Senators who voted to start the debate on the bill, which must clear at least another 60-vote benchmark before it can be passed.
