genocide? …what?

Bill Nelson might want to take his own advice. On Friday, when asked about the current political climate, Nelson cautioned against inflammatory rhetoric saying, “everybody needs to watch what they’re saying. We are all responsible, every one of us.”

But then over the weekend while campaigning, Bill Nelson ignored his own guidance and outrageously compared the U.S. political climate to the time right before the Rwanda genocide, one of the worst mass slaughters in history.

And unfortunately for Bill, his shocking comments haven’t gone unnoticed by the press…
