Former CIA Director Wonders About Sen. Tuberville Being Removed From 'the Human Race,' Senator Responds

Update: 

Sen. Tommy Tuberville's (R-AL) office released a statement on Tuesday afternoon indicating that they have reported Michael Hayden's post to the U.S. Capitol Police. It also pointed to a pattern of "reckless rhetoric" against the senator. There's also some background on the failures of Hayden.

The statement, since corrected and expanded upon, now reads:

“This morning my office was made aware of a statement made by General Michael Hayden calling for a politically motivated assassination. This statement is disgusting and it is repugnant to everything we believe in as Americans. Given General Hayden’s long career in Washington, he must have known that, by making such a statement, he was committing a serious crime. His own efforts today to reinterpret what he said are only a tacit admission of guilt. If we still have a nonpolitical justice system in this country, then General Hayden will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My office has reported this incident to the Capitol Police and I expect that they will once again do an excellent job protecting members of Congress and bringing criminals to justice.

“I am not aware of a single Democrat member of Congress who has condemned this reckless statement. This deafening silence tells us everything we need to know about Democrats and their commitment to ‘Our Democracy.’ In fact, Democrats have only continued to attack me by name today. Sadly, General Hayden is just the latest in a long line of Washington Leftists who have engaged in reckless rhetoric against me over the past few months. This must stop and it must stop now.

“General Hayden presided over some of the biggest failures in the history of American intelligence, such as the September 11 attacks and the lack of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. Further, General Hayden actively participated in the Russia Hoax and lied about Hunter Biden’s laptop to get Joe Biden elected President. Both of these lies tore our country apart and did enormous damage to the fabric of our republic. General Hayden is in no position to criticize anyone as his credibility was completely destroyed long ago.

“I am a conservative and a Republican, but above all, I am an American who cares about this country and is deeply concerned for its future. I am not a politician, and when I came to Washington, I did not expect to be popular among the clown show; but I certainty did not expect to be lied about on the Senate floor and threatened by former government officials like Michael Hayden. Anyone who actually cares about our country must go on the record and condemn his reckless statements.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, Hayden's calling for Tuberville to be "removed" from "the human race" is still up, with nearly 4,000 replies expressing alarm.

Original:

People have definitely been sharing their thoughts lately with regards to the holds that Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) is placing on military nominations and promotions in response to the Pentagon's illegal abortion policy that is in violation of 10 U.S.C. 1093. Under the Biden administration, servicemembers and their dependents can receive paid time off for abortions, and travel expenses are covered if the abortion takes place out-of-state. People have really taken their anger up a notch, though. One such user asked "Should Tommy Tuberville be removed from his committee?" That prompted Gen. Michael Hayden, formerly of the CIA and NSA, to take it a step further.

"How about the human race?" his post wondered. As many have taken to X to point out, the former head of the CIA and NSA is calling for the death of a sitting U.S. Senator by wondering if he should be removed from "the human race." Within hours, the post had over 1,000 replies and over 250 quoted reposts. There's still over 1,300 likes, though.

Several users tagged the FBI and other law enforcement in their replies or in their quoted posts.

Others expressed concern that, given Hayden's past roles, he could have actually carried out such a task. Many spoke to the concern it speaks to who is running such agencies.

As of late Monday night, the post is still up, though screenshots nevertheless abound, should Hayden delete it or make his account private, if it's not removed before he can do so. Other insulting posts towards Republicans remain on Hayden's feed, however.

Despite the narrative of the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats, military promotions and nominations can still go through the Senate via a floor vote, especially since Democrats control the chamber. The administration can also rescind the illegal policy that Tuberville pointed out Congress did not vote on, which means the senator is not only protecting the right to life, but the rule of law. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) caved last month, showing it can be done. A floor vote took place to confirm Charles "C.Q." Brown as the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Randy George to become chief of staff of the Army, and Gen. Eric Smith to become the next commandant of the Marine Corps.

"Tuberville" has been trending over X on Monday night in response to the post from Hayden.

On Tuesday morning, Hayden's post not only still remained, but he had also made another post addressing the matter, in which he used the term "MAGAnuts." 

"I was surprised to wake up this morning and discover that many MAGAnuts had lost their minds over my suggestion that “Coach” Tuberville not be considered a member of the human race," the post read. "Coach" is in quotes, even though Tuberville was indeed a college fooball coach. "I stand by that view. I’m wishing you all a nice day even the intransigent Tommy Tuberville," the post continued.

This post also received over 1,000 replies, many of them again calling Hayden out.
