Despicable: Arkansas Police Chief Lang Holland, a QAnon Trump supporter, has resigned after calling for violence against Democrats on the right-wing social media site Parler.
USA Today reports:
The police chief of a small Arkansas city has resigned after posting online threats of violence that targeted Democrats.
Marshall Mayor Kevin Elliott said in a statement Saturday that Police Chief Lang Holland had resigned effective immediately.
In one post Holland said:
When this is over and Trump is president for 4 more years, do not forget what these Marxist bastards have tried to do. When you see one in public get in their face do not give them any peace. Throw water on them at restaurants. Push them off sidewalks. Never let them forget they are traitors and have no right to live in this Republic after what they have done.
Another post read:
Death to all Marxist Democrats. Take no prisoners leave no survivors!
Hang all these Marxist Democrats now.
The FBI and CIA are Marxist organizations working to overthrow the Republic.
Kevin Elliot, the mayor of Marshall, a small city of roughly 1,200 people about 100 miles north of Little Rock, “condemned” the deplorable comments by Holland. In a statement Elliot said:
The Marshall community does not in any way support or condone bullying or threats of violence to anyone of any political persuasion. We are a welcoming community that is humbly working to build a bright future for ALL our citizens.
