Democratic Candidate Writes ‘Die MAGA Die’ On Social Media

A Democratic member of the House wrote a message sharply criticizing the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement following the successful vote to send $61 billion in aid to Ukraine. The comments came amid increasing Republican criticism of Democratic members of Congress and House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) over the bill’s passage.

“Die MAGA die. You lose,” wrote Nate McMurray, who is running for Congress in New York.

The House seat for New York’s 24th congressional district is currently vacant following the resignation of former Rep. Brian Higgins (D-NY), who stepped down earlier this year citing dysfunction in Congress.

Over the weekend the House passed the Ukraine aid package amid similar bills for Taiwan and Israel.

More than 100 House Republicans voted against the aid package for Ukraine. The bill received considerable criticism from members such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA). She had introduced two amendments to the aid package, which both failed.

The representative also said that the speaker was a “traitor” and that he “once again passed a bill with the help of Democrats while the majority of the Republican majority voted against it.”

A number of House Republicans criticized members of Congress who waved Ukrainian flags following the bill’s passage. Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) was among those who said that it was inappropriate to wave another country’s flag in Congress.

“Today we saw far too many Republicans congratulating themselves for capitulating to Democrats and claiming it as a victory,” wrote Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)

“And then blaming their capitulation on conservatives,” he wrote, arguing that the actions were “disgusting.”

“For months, House Republicans – specifically, Speaker Mike Johnson – have been unequivocal that we would not send billions in additional aid to Ukraine without securing our own border first. This package represents a complete reversal of a position that previously unified the Republican conference, despite the clear & present danger the southern border represents to US national security,” wrote Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).
