The police chief of Marshall, Ark., has resigned after making controversial posts on a right-wing social media app calling for “death” to Democrats, as well as other comments calling for violence.
The Kansas City Star reports Lang Holland resigned on Saturday after he was confronted by Marshall’s mayor about social media posts under his name on the app Parler.
The posts, which were made on Friday, before president-elect Joe Biden was projected to win the election, included calls for “death to all Marxist Democrats,” and said to “take no prisoners” and “leave no survivors.” Another post says Democrats “have no right to live in this Republic after what they have done.”
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that another deleted post by Holland included a photoshopped image of former President Obama, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in orange prison jumpsuits.
“I pray all those in that picture hang on the gallows and are drawn and quartered!!!!” the post said. “Anything less is not acceptable.”
