(WesternJournalism) In the characteristically compassionate, accepting tone of a modern leftist broadcaster, radio host Mike Malloy recently fantasized about the stabbing death of U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah).

On the heels of a 21-hour marathon speech criticizing ObamaCare, the Tea Party-backed politician has been on the receiving end of significant vitriol — even by members of his own party. Malloy, however, took that rhetoric to a new, disturbing level by volunteering a weapon to be used against Cruz.

Commenting on a conservative broadcaster’s opinion that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “stabbed Ted Cruz and Mike Lee in the back,” Malloy found it easy to transition from hyperbole to reality.
