Right-wing trolls won’t stop mocking Mollie Tibbetts’ murder because she was liberal
They say she ‘deserved’ what happened to her
The death of Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old student from Iowa, has not stopped heartless goons on the right from dancing on her grave. After Mollie's left-leaning tweets emerged yesterday – the day after she was found dead – far-right creeps started mocking her for being murdered. It was initially reported that Cristian Rivera, the man charged with killing her, was undocumented (his attorney says Rivera is legally in the US).
But that hasn't stopped trolls from bombarding her with tweets like this (posted underneath Mollie's tweet of "I hate white people", in response to how voter turnout in the Roy Moore/Doug Jones election in Alabama):
Fitting that you’re now a dead white cunt

I came here because I heard rumors Mollie was a race traitor but I had to see it with my own eyes. I wonder if her family knew she hated them for being white? The irony is she was killed by a "brown man." Poetic justice?

Meanwhile, Mollie's family has asked people to stop using her death as a tool to score political points.
Mollie's aunt, Billie Jo Calderwood, posted this appeal: "Please remember, Evil comes in EVERY color. Our family has been blessed to be surrounded by love, friendship and support throughout this entire ordeal by friends from all different nations and races. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you."
"Take her name out of your mouth," added a cousin of Mollie's named Sam Lucas. "I'm a member of Mollie’s family and we are not so fucking small-minded that we generalize a whole population based on some bad individuals. Now stop being a fucking snake and using my cousin's death as political propaganda."
