Pro-Trump Media Figure Calls For The Shooting Of Migrants Traveling In Caravan

Conservative blogger Michael Moates suggested that migrants coming to the U.S. should be shot on sight.

President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that the United States faces a “National Emergy” (sic) as a caravan of migrants approaches the southern border with Mexico, and a conservative blogger responded with a three-word suggestions: “Shoot on site” (sic).

Via RawStory:

> [Michael] Moates subsequently deleted the tweet — but not, he says, because he realized that it’s wrong to advocate gunning down women and children seeking asylum in the United States.

>

> “Let me clarify that his tweet was in the context of Donald Trump addressing illegal aliens coming into this country without permission and I also want to go as far as to say the only reason the tweet was deleted was because I was afraid Twitter would ban me,” he wrote in a followup tweet.

Moates previously ran into trouble after several teenage girls accused him of inappropriate behavior:

> Earlier this month, a report from Right Wing Watch documented how multiple pro-life Christian teens have accused the 23-year-old Moates of making sexual comments to them and sending them “inappropriate” photos despite knowing that they were underage.

> Moates has responded to the accusations by saying, “The fact that you can’t call a woman beautiful without offending them anymore is a problem.”
