Critical thinking does not seem to be a strong suit of the Democratic Party as of late. In a similar playbook to Ilhan Omar's 9/11 remarks, April Ryan made an incendiary remark against White House press Secretary Sarah Sanders Friday night, Mike Huckabee (Sanders' father) accurately quoted the CNN pundit, and then Ryan accused Mr. Huckabee of encouraging violence against her and that his family would be to blame if anything "happened" to her. Wait, what?
As reported by Newsbusters, April Ryan told CNN's Erin Burnett that the revelations from the Mueller Report that Sanders did not in fact speak with "countless" FBI agents -- something the White House Press Secretary has admitted was a wrong choice of words -- is enough to get her fired and that the American people should not trust her.

"Not only does she not have credibility, she lied. She out and out lied,” she declared as emotion welled up in her voice. “And the people, the American people can't trust her. They can't trust what's said from the President's mouthpiece-spokesperson from the people's house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired, end of story.”
Things got very dark as Ryan rhetorically suggested that since there was “a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off.” She added: “It's fire me Thursday or fire me Good Friday. She needs to go.”
In a political environment where Republican officials have been shot at a baseball field, progressive activists targeting the family home of right-leaning pundits, and others verbally accosting President Trump's cabinet and administration officials in restaurants ( actually being encouraged to do so by sitting Congresswomen), Gov. Huckabee rightfully called out CNN and April Ryan for her poor choice of words.
"So liberals—is this okay? Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder? CNN's April Ryan Says Sarah Sanders' Head Should Be "Lopped Off'," he tweeted. "Will the ?
@whca? revoke April Ryan’s credentials? If not, they are gutless tools," he followed up.

Ryan, who has never been a fan of Sarah Sanders as pointed out by Redstate, responded saying, "As I thank God this day and for his sacrifice as you should be doing, I have a warning for you! If anything happens to me or mine or anyone connected to me, you and your daughter and this administration will be held accountable! So you better stop now!"

She also asserted that Gov. Huckabee, a pastor, would not get to Heaven. "Will you get into heaven? The answer is no!," she tweeted at Mike Huckabee. She also, added, "You sir need to sit down. You gave me a veiled threat not long ago. You call yourself a man of God? Boy bye! As your people come for me! My people see you and will do the same for you!"

The "veiled threat" Ryan is referring to is when Huckabee defended his daughter from Ryan's silly accusation that she didn't actually make a pie that she posted photo of.
“Let me tell you something, she’s been making this pie for years… makes them for friends, but here’s the warning that I would issue. Stuart, don’t ever and I mean don’t ever mess with a Southern woman and her homemade pies. It is as dangerous as when you hear a Southern woman begin her sentence with ‘bless your heart.’ It means you’re about to be gutted like a deer and just don’t know it," he told Fox News' Stuart Varney.
Could Huckabee's quote be taken out of context by some maniac? Perhaps. Is April Ryan undercutting her argument that she is a sane, normal, and moral person who should be taken seriously by railing on Twitter about her "people"coming after the Huckabees, pontificating about the state of the governor's soul, and saying she's going to hold the White House accountable if anything happens to her? Absolutely. She seems unhinged, not based in reality, and like a far-left loon. But then again, none of these liberals seem normal these days. Ryan has exposed their new formula: Liberals say something asinine, Republicans accurately quote them and say ask "Why is this okay to say?", and then the leftists accuse said conservatives of inciting violence. In short, liberals are trying to tell you 1+1=3 in hopes you won't actually look at the facts.
