According to recent media reports, an attorney for the president made the following remarks on a talk show:
“Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot [Christopher] Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity… That guy is a class-A moron.
He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”
For the record, as the CEO of the Whistleblower Anti-Bullying Resource Network (WARN), I condemn such vitriolic and hateful comments. Bullies employ hate-mongering language of this nature to intimidate whistleblowers or anyone who dares speak truth to power.
Words of disagreement — even vehement disagreements — are perfectly acceptable in the marketplace of ideas. However, words and acts of hate have no place in a civilized society.
