Kurt Eichenwald is a New York Times bestselling author and liberal journalist.

He also went completely unhinged on Twitter a few days ago.

Eichenwald tweeted:

“I have so much hate in my heart tonight. My sister, widowed by COVID, has COVID because of antimaskers. About 4,000 died today; GOP says nothing. (Sen. Josh Hawley) and his ilk are working to harm America. I wish them and their loved ones all the pain and misery they inflicted on this country.”

In a separate tweet, which was removed because it violated Twitter’s terms of service, Eichenwald said:

“It’s at a moment like this that I want to find an antimasker and beat them to death. Since they believe they have the right to kill others, they have surrendered any right to object. #CategoricalImperative.”

In his moment of “rage-tweeting” (his words, not mine), Eichenwaled called one person a f-ing moron, saying people who do not wear masks don’t give an s-word about killing others.

He has made it a habit of lecturing Christians about mask-wearing as well.

“Masks mainly protect others, not you. Forty percent with COVID are asymptomatic. If you had it, didn’t know and refused masks, you infected at least two people. Ten levels down on an exponential growth: 50,000 people. Deaths: 750. If you won’t wear a mask, don’t F-ING brag about being ‘Christian.'” (Dec. 26, 2020)

“Two friends who are ministers. Both of them conduct services online. Why? Because Christians are not supposed to kill people out of selfishness. If this is a test of who follows the words of Jesus, people like you have literally been told you’re going to hell. Matthew 25:41-46.” (Dec. 28, 2020)

“You F-ING ‘Christians’ who preen about God saving you from COVID so you don’t need masks. You’re what Jesus condemns. You kill with hypocrisy. Read Matthew 25:41-46. If you realize the Bible is about more than hating gays, you’ll realize: For your selfishness, you’ll burn in hell.” (Dec. 30, 2020)

“They’re not Christians. That’s the point. Their Christofascist white nationalists who clothe their hatred in religion.” (Dec. 30, 2020)

Clearly, the guy has some issues. Here’s hoping he gets those figured out and finds some peace in his life.
