Steve Cox, an independent leftist candidate for California’s 39th House seat, wrote on Twitter that anyone who does not wear a mask or practices social distancing should be shot.

Cox, who claims to be running on a platform opposed to both traditional political parties, replied to Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire earlier this week on Twitter, who suggested that COVID is here to stay and that people should just live their lives “while you can.” This was not appreciated by Cox, who launched into a violent tirade on Twitter. “Whenever anyone says ‘we all die from something’… to justify not taking precautions to help protect others in this pandemic, we should be allowed to shoot them,” Cox tweeted. “Why are you crying? We all die from something. For you, it’s that bullet in your gut.”

Walsh in response called his response “psychotic,” to which Cox attempted to defend his tweet, which he pinned on top of his Twitter profile at the time of writing, as simply being a case of “self-defense,” ensuring that he was “defending his loved ones” by speaking about his right to shoot anyone he saw as affecting the health of those he cared about.

Instead of defending his admission on Twitter post, Cox instead focused on “debunking” claims that he said anyone taking the vaccine should be shot. “It was about avoiding large gatherings, wearing masks, socially distancing, etc,” Cox wrote. “The tweet I quoted didn’t mention vaccines. I didn’t mention vaccines. Yet the narrative is that I said I want to shoot people who aren’t vaccinated,” he continued. However, Cox never specified as such in his initial tweet, and neither did Walsh, meaning until the clarification, it could be considered a fair interpretation.

Cox describes himself as a libertarian, but on the leftist side of the spectrum, specifically splitting himself from the Libertarian Party, saying on Twitter that he wouldn’t feel bad if Spike Cohen, the 2020 Libertarian VP candidate, died. Despite claiming that the real libertarians are not right-wing, he has also repeatedly retweeted many hard-left individuals, including those with a Communist hammer and sickle in their display name. Cox presents himself on his website as an independent non-partisan candidate, “not of the left or of the right,” despite that clearly not being the case.

This isn’t the first time that Cox has caused controversy on Twitter. In October last year, Cox hit the headlines for tweeting that he hoped that both President Donald Trump and Joe Biden died after they contracted COVID-19, although clarified that he didn’t want Melania to die, as she “seems nice.” He later bragged on his Facebook page that Newsweek “accurately reflected” his views.

National File reached out to Twitter before the publication of this article regarding Cox’s tweet and the fact he wanted many people, including users of their site, shot for engaging in lawful activities, asking the Big Tech platform if anyone had reported the tweet in question, and whether it violated any of their rules regarding violent threats or the glorification of violence.

In June of last year, conservative commentator Michelle Malkin was suspended for 12 hours for tweeting that “violent criminal looters should be shot.” National File has asked Twitter if there was any substantive difference between the two tweets, especially noting that Malkin’s tweet invoked the right of self-defense against persons and property from criminals, while Cox encouraged the killing of law-abiding, non-violent citizens. National File did not receive a response on any of the queries before the time of publication, but will update this article with any comment from Twitter.

  • He clearly said that all people not taking precautions should be shot…precautions would be vaccines, wearing mask, etc. so he’s a huge liar in addition to being a lunatic

  • It is funny how when we talk about abortion..it’s “My Body, My Choice” from the demo.rats standpoint. They have NO CONCERN of the countless babies that are put to death each year because of their choice. But now, even though their information (or should I say, Disinformation) is about their lives, it’s a whole different story. How does it feel to have YOUR HEAD on the chopping block? They are the SHEEP TO SLAUGHTER… and you know what they say.. “Misery Loves Company!” They don’t want to look like such the FOOLS if everyone does it. But, be careful what YOU PREACH cause now …IT’S MY BODY, MY CHOICE.. so leave me the hell alone!

  • So, using his logic..”…I am defending my loved ones..”…doesn’t that mean we should shoot him on site? In self defense? After all, he is mentally deranged and threatening, in writing, to shoot us on site. That is an obvious, premeditated public threat on the lives of anyone who crosses his path that he doesn’t agree with. Using his thought pattern, he himself suggests the shoot on site protocol.

  • The state medias are silent on this but right now at this time, there are 1,000 lawyers and 10,000 doctors suing the CDC,WHO and the Davos Group for crimes against humanity. The people running these orgs are lying about the true numbers of covid deaths. The amount of covid deaths have been greatly exaggerated They also knew that their PCR test was not accurate and even more. Their forced vaccine mandates are in several Violations of the Nuremberg Code. What our leftist fascist government is doing to us the same thing that the Nazi’s did to it’s own people…..

  • Gee… I wonder if Mr. Cox has heard of a very elaborate birthday celebration that had just taken place with about 500 or so guests in attendance… It was shown in the media where everyone was having a grand old time with absolutely no precautions being taken… No masks, no social distancing, in fact some were looking quite CLOSE to each other… I’ll be watching in the media to see if you managed to catch up with ANY of these unscrupulous lawbreakers… Other than that, I’ll just be assuming that you’re just another TYPICAL POLITICAL WINDBAG… Especially from the LEFT side of the aisle… However I have noticed that especially from that side of the aisle, it seems that when THEY say or do something, it’s usually always MUCH DIFFERENT from what they expect from everyone ELSE !! Yeah, I thought so, save face, drop out.

  • I have long advocated for machine guns and mine fields on our border with Mexico. Same logic – self defense from criminals, drugs, disease, illeagal ailien invaders, terroists and Democrats – sorry, now I am repeating myself.

  • Well now, see there yellow belly. We CAN AGREE on something. I hold the same view on “anything goes” liberal-tarians. Pull it out. Mine was already waiting. Let’s “git ‘r done”. You sleezeballs CLAIM you want “no limits”. 100% “freedom”. I like it. Threaten me again prostitician. Threaten me again.

  • It has only been in recent years that maniacs of this caliber have been elected into office. If this is a reflection of our constituency our country is finished

  • Cox should go to jail for promoting domestic terrorism! What a fool, he knows nothing about the truth concerning Covid. His party promoted Covid!!
    If that statement was made by a conservative they’d be thrown in jail within the hour.
    These psychopath DEMONrats must be stopped!!

  • The fact that he wants to shoot anyone who does not think like him (masking, social distancing) makes him a threat to society. It seems most the unstable elected officials live in Cali where I live. By the way, I didn’t vote for any of them.

  • Yet he doesn’t want invaders shot for crossing the border carrying covid, he wants them shipped all over the country
