Montel Williams Gets Brutalized on Social Media After Calling for Peaceful Oregon Protesters to be Murdered

Montel Williams has been getting skewered on Twitter after the TV personality called for the murder of peaceful protesters who had occupied the empty Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon on Saturday night.

On Twitter, the hotheaded Williams hatefully called the protesters “hillbilly American Taliban” and called on the National Guard to “shoot to kill” the protesters, even though there has been no reports of violence, property damage, looting or arson, as there was during the Black Lives Matter riots in cities like Ferguson, MO, and Baltimore, MD.

The response to Williams’ hateful rhetoric was forceful and overwhelming, with one tweep bringing remembrance of a November 20 tweet in which Montel Williams threatened to take up arms against the U.S. Government, exposing some truly major hypocrisy:

Others hinted that Montel Williams’ bigoted use of the word “hillbillies” and double standard in regards to black violent rioters in Ferguson and Baltimore was a revelation of Williams’ inner racism:

Another tweep pointed out that if Williams’ opposes pushing back against federal government tyranny, it is very likely he would have been against America’s Founding Fathers if he were alive at the time:

Another popular Twitter user suggested that perhaps Montel Williams should focus on where real violence is occurring, Democrat gun control utopia’s like Chicago:

As respected judge and constitutional scholar Andrew Napolitano said in April 2014:

“The Constitution simply does not authorize the federal government to own any of this land (in the Western states),” Judge Napolitano said during the Bundy Nevada (where the feds claim to own a whopping 81% of land) standoff with the Obama BLM.

    “To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such district (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the state in which the same shall be for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings” (Art I, Sect. 8, Clause 17)

This is exactly what is in dispute here. The Constitution does not allow the federal government to own land other than for the Capitol, post offices, military bases, etc. It does not allow for the feds to confiscate for “wildlife” or other unconstitutional reasons that may pop into politicians’ collective (literally, collective) heads.

Moreover, the various States would have never agreed to a federal government that claims to own one-third of all states’ land.

It is sad that constitutional illiterates like Montel Williams, a TV personality, feel like they should weigh in on such matters, let alone with such hateful, bigoted and violence-inducing rhetoric.

Meanwhile, after getting brutalized with ridicule, Montel Williams asked his critics to “go away,” and called those who believe in the U.S. Constitution “wacko birds.”

Keep it classy, Montel.
