Conduct unbecoming: Former CIA director Gen. Michael Hayden suggests execution of Sen. Tuberville

Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, a conservative Republican, has been nominated for removal “from the human race” by a former director of the CIA. Tuberville has reported Gen. Michael Hayden’s comments to the Capitol Police.

Hayden is a four-star general and former director of the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency. On Monday, he advocated on X/Twitter that he wanted Sen. Tuberville removed “from the human race.

After receiving criticism for promoting violence against an elected member of the Senate, Hayden doubled down: “I was surprised to wake up this morning and discover that many MAGAnuts had lost their minds over my suggestion that ‘Coach’ Tuberville not be considered a member of the human race. I stand by that view. I’m wishing you all a nice day even the intransigent Tommy Tuberville,” he wrote, attempting to reword his original statement.

Hayden has over 342,000 followers of his X/Twitter account.

Tuberville is on the Senate Armed Services Committee and has blocked the bulk confirmations of hundreds of military officers who are waiting for promotions. Tuberville is protesting a Pentagon policy that pays for women troops’ out-of-state travel for abortion.

Tuberville released a statement on Tuesday:

“This morning my office was made aware of statements made by General Michael Hayden calling for politically motivated violence. These statements are disgusting and they are repugnant to everything we believe in as Americans. Given General Hayden’s long career in Washington, he must have known he was committing a serious crime. If we still have a nonpolitical justice system in this country, then General Hayden will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My office has reported this incident to the Capitol Police and I expect that they will once again do an excellent job protecting members of Congress and bringing criminals to justice,” he said.

“The deafening silence from Democrats about this today tells us everything we need to know about their commitment to ‘Our Democracy.’ Sadly, General Hayden is just the latest in a long line of Washington Leftists who have engaged in reckless rhetoric against me over the past few months.

“I am a conservative and a Republican, but above all, I am an American who cares about this country and is deeply concerned for its future. I am not a politician, and when I came to Washington, I did not expect to be popular among the clown show,but I certainly did not expect to be threatened by former government officials like Michael Hayden.

“Anyone who actually cares about our country must condemn these reckless statements,” Tuberville said.

Mollie Hemingway, editor in chief of The Federalist, wrote, “Former CIA Director Michael Hayden calls for the assassination of Sen. Tuberville because the senator is performing desperately needed oversight of the U.S. Military.”

  1. One knows they’re over the target when the opposition starts resorting to death threats. Keep it up; you’re obviously hitting them where it hurts.

      • Milley who called the CCCP to tell them of the US defense posture? Milley who told the other branches of the JCoS to not obey an order from the commander in chief unless he signed off on it? Both are treasonable actions regardless of comments by the orange man. He ought to have been court martialed for that alone. Then Afghanistan. Then the gutting of morale and recruitment… I could go on. He was the worst JCoS in my lifetime.

      • Nice use of whataboutism to dismiss abhorrent behavior.
        i do not care about what Trump said. This article is not about him. It is about Hayden.

      • Miley is a pos yes I agree. Traitor actually. He is so popular he has had to hire security to protect his family. Hayden needs to be tied to a lead weight kicked over the side. Enough of these lib tard nutless generals. Crackerjack box educated. I’ll bet Hayden wears panties and a braw.

  2. Dangerous mentality but common once a government and those deeply embedded and vested in it achieve such power. To Hayden and those of his elite ilk – might makes right.

  3. What’s the over/under of Hayden’s account getting suspended? A regular person would be put on a few different lists for a comment like that, let alone social media suspension…

  4. Aah, compassionate liberals. So tolerant.

    Gotta love the timing. Wonder if he was inspired by the butchery by Hamas?

  5. Waiting for the MRAK headline on Donald Trump calling for the execution of General Mark Milley. This type of language is unacceptable for any public figure and MRAK should say so. Hayden is a registered Republican, MRAK calling him a leftist Democrat is laughable.

    • Oh “Frank”….

      Every time I think you can’t get worse, you outdo yourself. It’s not an accomplishment to be proud of.

      The reason it’s not covered is because what you are trying to sell never happened. Trump made a stupid comment that in his opinion Milley committed treason and in times past could have merited execution. A far, far, far cry from calling for it.

      Posting it twice doesn’t give it traction. It just makes you look twice as bad.

      The tin foil hat you’re wearing is cutting off the blood flow to your brain.

    • You will wait for a long time, Frank. Trump didn’t call for his execution. He said this exactly: “This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been death! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act.” In times gone by is the key.

      Get your facts straight. Oh, I forgot, you’re Frank the Rast, and you are always going to be the one-trick pony here.

      • Yeah Frank. And while you are at it, get that Kid the money back that’s been sitting in a fund!
        I hear ICC is seizing assets there Frank. Hope you didn’t double dip like ol Sarah did! Oops!
        Don’t steal! No one likes a thief. So, there Frank, when are you going to tell the Kid that Russia is homebase? No? I didn’t think so. Well no worries! ICC knows already. Isn’t that nice?

    • Trump trump trump have a little TDS do you.you must have seen that on your favorite show The View everyone knows those fools never get it wrong

    • Well, that (supposed) incident was several years ago.
      So, you keep on waiting… and waiting… and waiting…
      .
      And, if you actually read what Trump said, and had at least one functioning brain cell, you would realize the two statements are not even close.

  6. Waiting for the MRAK headline on Donald Trump calling for the execution of General Mark Milley. This type of language is unacceptable for any public figure and MRAK should say so.

    • How about you give us the exact quote, and we will decide how full of it you are. Suzanne can post whatever she likes, and you don’t have to read it. Just sayin’.

      • “This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been death! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act.” That is the exact quote.

        Every time Frank Rast opens up his mouth, I like Trump more than before.

    • You should stop posting under your own name because you beclown yourself. Again, Frank, but this time s-l-o-w-l-y: Trump didn’t call for his execution. He said this exactly: “This is an act so egregious that, in times gone by, the punishment would have been death! A war between China and the United States could have been the result of this treasonous act.” In times gone by is the key.

  7. i would say its just a joke and to relax but since it’s coming from a mass murderer the threat maybe real

  8. “Donald Trump calling for the execution of General Mark Milley”…Somebody listens to left wing loonies in the media juuuuuust a bit too much..🤦‍♂️…(My reading comprehension is at least decent so I’m also curious where MRAK called Hayden a “leftist Democrat” 🤷‍♂️)

    These recent Hayden v Tuberville (and the past Milley v Trump mentioned) media fed frenzies just seem like a bunch of political saber rattling, ramped up by such comments..the real danger lies in the fact that these juvenile fender crunching exchanges are occurring in high places with people in leadership positions that could seriously damage the country, NOT merely on round oval dirt tracks in front of drunken spectators…

  9. Gawd all f ing darn. Hayden should NOT have said that. Pathetic, BUT you Christian Nationalists have to put that in perspective of defendant Trump who suggested killing Miley was a good idea, Trump dodged service cuz of early onset menses, said soldiers were suckers and losers, didn’t visit a veteran’s cemetery cuz his playdoh hair might fold, insulted McCain, insulted all the Four Star families.

    He stands for one thing: himself. Sure as hell isn’t you.

    Support Trump = end democracy.

    • I’d rather live with “Christian Nationalists” then your type. Hopefully there will be a separation soon and you can go live in SoCal or some other blue shithole.

    • VCM, you make a considerable number of assumptions here that sadly speak to your historical ignorance and need for a basic class in constitution.
      First calling all “Christian Nationalists” seems to be your way to insult that, which you disagree with. Last I checked I never heard of Christian Nationalists. BTW your insinuation is not lost on anyone, who has a modicum of WWII history knowledge and it is despicable.
      The Trump assertion alludes to past US history were spies like Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for spying for the Soviets in 1953, unlike Robert Hannson, who also spied for the Soviets from 1979-2001 but was imprisoned until his death earlier this year. Hayden by your own admission made a clear and present threat against a sitting senator. No historical content here. Hayden like a tyrant demanded the death of one, who in any democracy has a right to his own opinion and the right to voice it, especially as the representative of the people.
      Now to your most interesting assertion, how exactly does Trump mean the “end of democracy”?? It is something you throw around, probably because it sounds good, but the end of democracy means martial law and tyranny. So explain that and BE SPECIFIC not just your usual talking point headlines.

    • Valley Chapel of Idiocy,

      Your explosion of Trump Derangement Syndrome rhetorical diarrhea here is amusing, but pathetic. Not one disjointed word you wrote has any bearing or any relevance on the topic at hand. But then again, radical leftist extremists are not exactly renowned for their rigorous logic nor their logical consistency, both of which border on nil.

  10. Hayden reminds me of Wally Cox, a sometimes comedian on the old Hollywood Squares. A real sourpuss from the clandestine services who thinks he’s smart and cute. First, he needs a new hairpiece. Second, he needs to run for local dogcatcher. Then we might listen. On looks alone, the guy is below a zero.

  11. So readers point out that Trump didn’t specifically call for execution of Milley. So how do same readers read the comments of Hayden and state that this called for an execution. Problem is some supposedly tough football coach didn’t like seeing some “mean tweets.” But let’s switch over to RFK Jr., with all his anti-vax talk, that should get quite a few MAGA’s to punch his ticket. The darling of the right suddenly becomes a liability. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving crowd. Here’s some advice, don’t use your credit card when you contribute to Santos legal defense fund, use a certified money order. He still might end up being house speaker.

  12. 1-nothing will come from the complaint. Swamp protects swamp.

    2-any doubts about why our intelligence services missed the attack on Israel (assuming they didn’t just ignore it) should be dismissed considering the competency of their people.

  13. I’m observing the usual suspects are out in force again.

    The powers running Grandpa Bloodstains must have realized just how bad this poop show is for him, and sent every flying monkey out to try to distract us.

  14. The inevitable outcome of any leftist ideology is always genocide.
    Is anyone surprised?
    (Well, anyone who knows the smallest modicum of history, which leaves out any and all leftists.)
