A Republican Pennsylvania state representative suggested he'll run over anyone blocking highways in a tweet that also links to an article about protestors shutting down streets in St. Louis.
"If anyone EVER tries to stop my car on a highway with negative intentions…I will not stop under any conditions," Rep. Aaron Bernstine tweeted Friday.

The tweet comes a little over a month since 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed by a driver while protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Bernstine continued to defend his statement in a series of bravado-laden tweets featuring theoretical situations with "thugs" stopping him and his family on a highway or other workers during their commute.
