The Young Democratic Socialists at the University of Georgia apparently aren't too fond of the Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Responding to a story about a college professor who said the GOP should be "lined up and shot" for passing the Obamacare replacement bill, the Young Democratic Socialists upped the ante on social media.
"This is absolutely outrageous!” the group tweeted. "House Republicans should NOT be shot! They should be guillotined.”

Our members are engaged in a wide variety of activities and causes. We are associated with the youth chapter of Democratic Socialists of America."
Here's a sampling of other tweets from the University of Georgia's Young Democratic Socialists:
