Dana Rohrabacher Says You Deserve to Be Killed By Terrorists

We've spent so long through the looking glass, accepting the Usurper's insane view of the world, that it's hard to remember the words we used to use - just six years ago! - to describe diatribes like this one by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher on the floor of the U.S. Congress.

Ludicrous? Outrageous? Psychotic? Anti-American?

Come up with your own description.

Thanks to Salon commenter adnoto, who interrupted a thread on the death of David Halberstam to bring this Think Progress post to our attention (link includes a transcript):

With respect to Mr. Halberstam...
I don't want to hijack here but I beg of you all to click on my signature link and watch the video of Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) tell a group protesting America's use of torture and rendition that, because they don't support these illegal and fundamentally un-American policies, he hopes their families "suffer the consequences." Now what do you suppose he meant by that?

Get angry folks. This guy should be out of a job by the end of the week.
