    "And then when we're done, let's SET THEIR PENISES ON FIRE!"

    "Jesus, Gary, chill."

    We need to hunt them down, and kill them.
    And eat their flesh!
    B'hut first we should rape them!
    How about we kill them, and then rape their bodies so we can use their blood as lubricant?

    "We must squeeze them. When they've got balls' we must crush them … If a man says he has balls' we must crush those balls. We must find the balls where they are and crush them...."

    This guy's got a real thing for balls, doesn't he?

    Will Trump be tweeting out his approval for progressive law enforcement like he did with the nut job in the Philippines?
