Man calls for public executions as he opposes abortion in viral video

A man was jailed while advocating for public executions and also opposing abortion in a video that has gone viral on social media.

The clip shows Jason Selvig, the party of comedy duo The Good Liars, speaking with the man who attended the National Rifle Association event in Houston, Texas last month.

“We spoke to a man at the NRA convention who said we could stop mass shootings if teachers carried guns and we brought back public executions,” said The Good Liars. tweeted Tuesday along with the clip, which has more than 325,000 views so far.

“You don’t enter a building if all the teachers are armed,” the man told Selvig outside the event, which was held days after a teenage gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

“So you want the teachers to carry guns?” asked Selvig.

“Yes, everyone should be carrying a gun. Except maybe on the plane,” the man replied.

Selvig asked if the man thought students would feel intimidated if their teachers had guns. ‘No. I want them there,’ he said.

“And so teachers with guns, possible solution…,” said Selvig, just before the man started calling on the US to reduce public executions.

“Yes, I know it is. And they need to kill all these people who are on death row… Put them to death quickly,” he said.

“You want, you want to kill all those people?” asked Selvig.

“Yeah, they should have a public execution for everyone to see,” the man said. ‘Just like before. I’m all for public execution.”

At this point, Selvig asks about the man’s opinion on abortion, which is heavily curtailed in Texas by a restrictive law banning the procedure after about six weeks of pregnancy.

“I am against abortion. That is murder”, the man responded immediately.

“Wait, you said you’re against abortion…but you want to bring back public executions?” asked Selvig.

“Yes,” said the man.

“I just wanted to make sure I got the information there. Okay,” Selvig said.

The man then describes how he thinks Americans can enjoy public executions.

“They should have public executions for everyone to see,” he said. “Bring your lunch and drink your favorite drink and we’ll watch the execution.”

‘Seems normal. Why not?’ Selvig responded.

“Yes,” the man replied, apparently not catching the irony of his remarks.

Selvig also ridiculed NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre with a satirical speech that went viral.

Selvig has been approached for comment.

The comedy duo Good Liars consists of Jason Selvig and Davram Stiefler and has spent years spoofing countless people in front of the camera.
