A Democratic candidate running for the legislative seat currently held by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is taking the GOP head-on, slamming the gun rights crowd and the pro-life people with the same hateful brush that suggests: You’re all inferior on the intellectual front.

Legislative hopeful Mike Dickinson tweeted on his “DickinsonForCongress” account: “Anyone who supports Obama hating get off my train. Anyone who supports [expletive] the NRA get off my train.”

Mr. Dickinson also tweeted about the NRA: “[T]he NRA is a god awful fear mongering group and those who support the NRA are pure trash,” The Blaze reported.

He then went on to tweet out his harsh appraisal of those who oppose abortion.

“Anti choice, abortion haters are all basically mentally disabled. They cannot see or reason. It’s all bible thumping,” Mr. Dickinson tweeted, as reported by The Blaze.

Mr. Dickinson describes himself as a “liberal Democrat,” The Blaze reported. And when one Twitter posted wrote a response to his slam of the NRA — “I went to engineering school and I support the NRA” — Mr. Dickinson issued a condescending reply.

“Went or graduated? RW has large college dropout rate,” he tweeted.
