A Republican state representative in Pennsylvania has vowed to run over any protesters that he might encounter blocking a street.
Rep. Aaron Berstine "endorsed running over protesters who block roads," Think Progress reported.
Years before he joined the Pennsylvania legislature, Aaron Bernstine was tweeting his belief that vehicular assault is an appropriate response to peaceful protests.
I'd def not stop my car! “@NewsBreaker: #Zimmerman protesters have shut down traffic on I880 in Oakland, Calf. http://t.co/yKKSTz6W6e”— Aaron Bernstine (@Aaron Bernstine)1373941503.0
Friday evening, only a month after peaceful, anti-Fascism protester Heather Heyer was murdered by a vehicle in an act many are calling domestic terrorism, Rep. Bernstine continued to advocate the tactic.
If anyone EVER tries to stop my car on a highway with negative intentions... I will not stop under any conditions. https://t.co/Uf62WwhIUk— Aaron Bernstine (@Aaron Bernstine)1505535963.0
