Journalist Kurt Eichenwald posted this hate speech on Twitter:

“It’s at a moment like this that I want to find an antimasker and beat them to death. Since they believe they have the right to kill others, they have surrendered any right to object. #CategoricalImperative.”

Kurt Eichenwald has publicly posted a violent threat to the public. As a journalist, he has a responsibility to the public, through any medium, to report only verifiable facts and to not abuse his position by inciting both fear and violence on any social media platform. His post has a chilling effect.

 More than once, I have mistakenly entered a public space without my mask. As soon as I realized it, I ran back out to get it and wear it. Now, people who aren't otherwise opposed to mask wearing are at risk if they forget their mask for even a second. His numerous Tweets voice his opinions as facts, which is irresponsible for a journalist. He has claimed that people waiting in line at hospitals are anti-mask Christian Republicans who celebrated Christmas, have COVID-19, and who are giving others COVID-19. You can see these posts under his name on Twitter. The one I quoted here has already been removed. Kurt Eichenwald should be removed from journalism for the rest of his life and stripped of his awards. Kurt Eichenwald is endangering the public by abusing his title as a journalst to spread hate and incite violence. 

By signing this petition, you are in agreement that journalist Kurt Eichenwald should be forbidden to practice journalism due to his abuse of his title to purposely incite violence and to spread hate through voicing opinions as facts on social media.
