Democratic congressional candidate Morris “Moe” Davis, an attorney and retired U.S. Air Force colonel running against Madison Cawthorn in North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, once tweeted about breaking the necks of North Carolina Republicans.
The tweet posted Sept. 11, 2019 describes Republicans in the state as “extremists” and goes into graphic detail about breaking their necks. “We stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure,” the tweet reads.
Screw they go low, we go high bullsh*t. When @NCGOP extremists go low, we stomp their scrawny pasty necks with our heels and once you hear the sound of a crisp snap you grind your heel hard and twist it slowly side to side for good measure. He needs to know who whupped his ass.

Davis told a reporter at the North State Journal he posted the tweet because “that was the day of the NC 9 special election” which he added was “caused by Republican voter fraud.”
He was referring to the 2018 midterm election in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District which the state’s election board nullified due to illegal activity “involving absentee ballots.” A special election was held Sept. 10, 2019 and was won by Republican Rep. Dan Bishop, according to The New York Times.
Davis previously referred to Cawthorn with a number of derogatory terms in a tweet Aug. 23, 2020 and said his Republican opponent’s views “would make George Wallace proud.” Cawthorn was a speaker at the Republican National Convention that same week.
My 25 year old homeschooled, college-dropout, lying, white nationalist friendly, misogynistic, sexual aggressive, multimillionaire (with no job) opponent with policy views that would make George Wallace proud has the full weight of the Republican Party behind him.
Must be nice. https://t.co/wsVwbnrzoB

Cawthorn has previously denied allegations of sexually aggressive behavior and allegations that he is sympathetic to white nationalist politics. (RELATED: 24-Year-Old Madison Cawthorn Opens Up About His GOP Primary Win, His Love Life And More)
A number of Davis’ other profane tweets were brought up during a debate between the two candidates held Sept. 4 and 5, the North State Journal reported. Davis and Cawthorn are running to fill the seat vacated by Mark Meadows after he was appointed White House Chief of Staff earlier this year.
Debate moderator Pete Kaliner pointed out a number of tweets insulting President Donald Trump and his family, comparing Republicans to the Ku Klux Klan and mocking then-Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann.
