Manhunt Tweet Apology by Nate Bell of Arkansas

People ought to think twice before opening their lips. But in case of Republican Nate Bell of Arkansas maybe that saying should rearrange the thinking to four times. His rude remarks on Twitter stating that “Liberals must wish they had assault rifles while the police hunted for the Boston suspects” left many deeply offended. Many families had casualties among their friends and relatives who bore the brunt of the vicious bombing. The tweet didn’t endear him to them or the thousands of Bostonians affected by the tragedy.

Nate Bell has since changed his stance by apologizing to those concerned. However, he said that it was not the content so much as the bad timing at which he felt contrite and sorry. This has once again enraged many Twitter and Facebook users who have called him many things not worth mentioning here. The general opinion online is that Nate should not get re-elected since he had spoken so rashly. The feeling is that he should be sorry for the height of insensitivity he had shown.

The majority of Republicans and Liberals have criticized him for the snide remarks. The GOP especially issued a statement that showed that they had distanced themselves from Nate. He had chosen the wrong words at the wrong time. The consensus was that party politics had no place in the terrorist debate. All must stand united against such blatant violence that had little respect for human life.

Many others in government and politics also spoke out vociferously and vehemently against Nate for his bad taste. The Twitter site rarely contained any words of sympathy for Nate despite his apology in which he appeared contrite and repentant for his wrongdoing. Negativity can only invite negativity as is the law of nature.

At a time when people are scared and terrorized, loving, caring, giving and sharing all matter a lot. But with insensitive, boorish wisecracks such as Nate’s coming into public view the anger and indignation know no reprieve. There should be more understanding between those people who stick together instead of in-fighting. Democracy may be a cacophony of voices in a debate of all against all, yet that does not mean they have to resort to insults and inflammatory content just to get a response.

Whatever the case, Nate Bell will be more careful in the future. His prospects as a Republican Representative depend upon it.
