Mike Malzone, the founder of the Merrimack Tea Party, said on a Facebook post reacting to the Supreme Court ruling on health care, "I hope the (5 supremes) get colon cancer."
The post received 33 "likes" from Malzone's like minded friends.
One day after posting the message Malzone doubled down and said he stood by what he said. He did clarify that he didn't want anyone to die, and the colon cancer reference was more to make a point that he wants them to feel the pain being inflicted on Americans being overburdened by taxes.
Not much news here just an interesting peek into the psyche of the Tea Party enthusiasts.
• Side Note: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who joined the majority opinion, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999 and had pancreatic cancer ten years later.
