Former CIA Director Calls for Assassination of GOP Senator

When someone does something we don’t like, there are right and wrong ways to tell them we don’t agree or make them change their minds. Former CIA Director and retired General Michael Hayden is learning that making death threats is not the right way.

It happened on Monday when Hayden responded to an X post about possibly removing Alabama GOP Senator and former Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville from his committee in Congress (which, by the way, is a correct way to punish someone for doing something you don’t like). Instead of giving the usual ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ Hayden said, “How about the human race?” As in, Tuberville should be removed from the human race.

Essentially, it’s a call for assassination.

And it should be extremely frowned upon by just about anyone, let alone a man who used to run the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency. By the way, he’s now a professor at George Mason University-Schar School of Policy and Government.

Naturally, there has now been a public outcry against Hayden, although no one has suggested murder yet.

General Mike Flynn has suggested that the former CIA director be arrested immediately. Others propose that all his military awards, titles, and pension be stripped.


Of course, Hayden isn’t the least bit sorry and has even admitted such. According to an even more recent post, he “stand(s) by that view,” that “’Coach’ Tuberville not be considered a member of the human race.”

It’s important to note that Hayden is one of a select 51 former intelligence officials who signed an erroneous letter declaring Hunter Biden’s laptop to be part of “Russian disinformation.” And we all know that’s not even close to being true.

Yet, despite that, no one has called for his assassination.

Hayden should be ashamed of himself. And yes, he should be stripped of all but life itself.
