“Pro-life” Republican official says we should napalm whole African villages to stop Ebola crisis…

Patients affected by Ebola should be killed to defeat the deadly virus, a pro-life American politician has said.

There’s just no other way with Ebola. We need to be napalming villages from the air right now. RT @gracels No, but I wouldn’t kill them.

The remarks of Todd Kincannon, former executive director of the Republican Party in South Carolina, sparked outrage as the World Health Organization warned at least 7,000 people in West Africa have contracted the disease.

Kincannon made the comment on Twitter, where he also asked “Why do creepy viruses always come from Africa? HIV, Marburg, Ebola, West Nile…”

He then suggested he would kill with “zero hesitation” the cameramen and health workers who returned from West Africa and who might have contracted the disease.

This is not the first time that Kincannon has sparked controversy for his tweets. In 2013, he mocked 17-year-old unarmed Trayvon Martin, who was killed by his neighbour George Zimmermann in Florida.

He also said transgender people should be placed in a concentration-style camp and suggested that Muslims should receive the same treatment “that our forefathers did to the savages that infested America prior to Christopher Columbus.”

This last tweet, posted on 1 October 2014, was subsequently deleted.
