The left’s tendency to use rhetoric of extreme violence against political adversaries has once again reared its ugly head, this time at a Tennessee school board hearing where a member said she wanted to set fire to a sitting United States senator.

During a public meeting of the Metro Nashville Board of Public Education last week, a woman on the elected body was caught on hot mic expressing her opinion that Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn should be lit ablaze, a stunning moment of candor from one of many far-left extremists who have been able to commandeer seats on elected school boards across the nation.

The woman who has been identified by the Tennessee Star as Sharon Gentry made her remarks during a break from public input during crosstalk when she said the quiet part out loud, that partisan rancor toward Republicans and conservatives has reached such a hateful level that barbaric solutions are now perfectly acceptable as a way to settle differences.

Video of the elected board member’s incendiary remarks quickly went viral on social media.

“Have you been watching these Supreme Court…,” said one unidentified woman.

“Let me tell y’all,” another replied.

“She is something else,” one voice says, apparently referring to Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.

“Let me tell y’all,” again.

“I love her,” a voice says, expressing passionate admiration for the D.C. Appeals Court judge.

“Can we just go set Marsha Blackburn on fire?” interjected the woman who has been identified as Gentry.

The motivation to express a desire to see a US senator set ablaze appears to have stemmed from Blackburn’s effort to pin down President Joe Biden’s historic nominee on the definition of what a woman is during an intense exchange during last week’s Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings.

Here’s the exchange between Sen. Blackburn and Judge Jackson.

Blackburn: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”

Jackson: “Can I provide a definition?”

Blackburn: “Mhmm, yeah.”

Jackson: “No, I can’t.”

Blackburn: “You can’t?”

Jackson: “Not in this context – I’m not a biologist.”

As could be expected, Twitter was lit up with fiery reactions to the board member’s murderous remarks.

As if any further reminder is necessary that they hate you and want you dead, this is it.
