Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos recently encouraged harm against journalists, reported the Observer.

After a feature on an Upper East Side restaurant, where Yiannopoulos is a regular, he said he can't wait for people to start killing reporters.

“I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight,” Yiannopoulos said in a text message.

This news comes on the heels of White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, being harassed in public. As well as Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) encouraging the public to protest members of the Trump administration.

News broke Thursday that there was an active shooter at the Capital-Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
