(This article has been updated. Rep. Tavia Galonski represents the 35th House District, not the 25th.)
If some Ohio Democratic leaders had their way, civil disobedience would be punishable by jail time and death – as crazy as it sounds.
These emboldened Democrats can’t seem to conceal their utter disdain for Ohioans that don’t believe as they believe or do as they say.
Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper wants anyone without a mask fined and arrested. And, unbelievably, Democratic State Rep. Tavia Galonski said participants at an upcoming Ohio Freedom rally should be slaughtered.
You can’t make this stuff up.
Galonski represents Ohio’s 35th district and is Chair of the Ohio Woman’s Caucus.
It’s unclear if Galonski is making a threat or signaling the suggestion of violence, but she had plenty of support from fellow Democrats figuratively patting her back for the statement, “A little voluntary manslaughter anyone?”
She was referring to attendees at an upcoming Stand for Freedom Ohio rally scheduled for Saturday in Capitol Square, Columbus.
Some of the representative’s followers reiterated her death tweet in memes and comments, wishing participants a fate of violence or Covid.
A review of Galonski’s Twitter showed no such hostility toward Black Lives Matter and Antifa groups that rioted in the streets of downtown Columbus for weeks and did thousands of dollars in damage to the Statehouse where Galonski serves as an elected official.
ODP Chairman David Pepper last Friday slammed Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost when Yost stated that he could not legally enforce orders for face masks.
Violating a state order is a second-degree misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.
“We’re not talking about throwing people in jail,” DeWine said during a press conference last week. “This is a law to advise people what to do.”
ODP Chairman David Pepper is upset that the orders will not be enforced by the state.
“As far as Dave Yost is concerned, refusing to enforce health orders is just one more example that the Ohio GOP has become the party of Donald Trump, Nino Vitale and John Becker,” said Pepper. Read the story here
Pepper was referring to Rep. Nino Vitale and Rep. John Becker who are outspoken advocates for civil liberties.
Sadly, Galonski’s public threat has gone unreported by liberal media. As far as is known, Galonski has not been reprimanded by the ODP or her superiors at the Ohio House.
One of those to speak out against Galonski’s Twitter post commented, “Inciting violence is never okay but especially not from elected officials!”
