There are unhinged Democrats, and then there is Pam Keith.

Keith, a Navy veteran and self-described “moderate” Democrat, has had two unsuccessful runs for public office in Florida. She once ran for the U.S. House district 18 seat in 2018 and also the U.S. Senate in 2016. She lost both times in the primary by large margins.

Considering the bizarre behavior she routinely displays on her Twitter feed alone, it’s not hard to understand why. Fortunately there are still some parts of the country where “crazy” is not on the list of qualifications Democrats look for in their candidates who are running for office.

Keith, who routinely retweets various rants from the AOC-led Squad in a desperate attempt to become an honorary member, could not contain her enthusiasm today after the breaking news reports about the death of 79-year-old billionaire philanthropist David Koch were confirmed.

Here are the two worst tweets from Keith this morning about Koch’s passing:

Many others on the left – including so-called “journalists” – also celebrated Koch’s death, as Twitchy, Free Beacon, Daily Wire, and others documented. But Keith’s were among the worst.

Red State’s Sarah Rumpf was among the many who corrected the record on Koch and took deranged leftists like Keith to task for their ghoulish celebrating and fact-free rants:

Unfortunately, trying to talk Pam down from her high perch in the Democratic fever swamps didn’t do any good. She doubled down later after another leftist told her how bad her tweets made her look:

Who honestly sits in front of their computer or with their cell phone in hand and thinks “Hey, this political figure I disagreed with died. I’m going to post my happiness about it on social media for the world to see”? Unfortunately, a lot of people do, and not just fringe folks on the left like Pam Keith. I’ve seen people on the right do it, too. As AG said, Twitter just provides the space for unhappy and bitter people to showcase how awful they can be.

Here’s my rule of thumb on these matters: If you don’t have anything good to say in the immediate aftermath of the death of a public figure you didn’t like, don’t say it at all. Especially not on blast by way of social media platforms.

And most important of all: You certainly should not attempt to play God and declare who is going to Heaven and who is not. That’s not for any of us to decide.

Instead, what I do is quietly pray for the person’s family, and ask that God surrounds them and comforts them during their very difficult time.

In my opinion, that’s what decent people do. Sadly, Pam Keith burned her “decent” card a long time ago, apparently because playing unhinged Twitter troll gave her the attention Florida voters wouldn’t. Bless her heart.
