The Twitter account of Occupy Wall Street published a cartoon Monday promoting the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

The post features a CPR infographic altered to include instructions on how to kill ICE agents.
Occupy Wall Street captioned the picture, “What To Do If You Encounter An ICE Agent.”
One of the instructions reads: “Grab the ICE agent from behind and push your knife into his chest with an upward thrust, breaking through his sternum.”
Twitter users condemned the group for promoting violence and called on Twitter to take action.
This is a very disturbing and ultimately alarming tweet condoning outright violence. If anyone actually takes this advice can Occupy Wall Street be sued for damages? Can Twitter be sued for damages?— fighterofdumb (@fighterofdumb) June 19, 2018
For anyone who wonders what the left considers acceptable, and that Twitter allows, see this disgusting email from Occupy Wall Street. A Dem/George Soros funded group. And these are people who claim President Trump is lowering the bar. Right. https://t.co/0wyWOnDl4o— Robert Meyne (@RobMeyne) June 19, 2018
No big. Just advocating a little murder. https://t.co/3KgXLGJi3w— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) June 19, 2018
I reported it. @jack probably won’t have a problem with it though. Especially since he so stupidly ate a Chik-filA sandwich. He’ll be eager to prove his loyalty to the Borg hive.— Jeanne Nicholson 🔹 (@JeannesTweeting) June 19, 2018
Occupy Wall Street is an anti-capitalism protest movement launched in New York City’s financial district in 2011. The group later suggested the post was satire.

ICE has been targeted in the wake of the Trump administration’s decision to prosecute people who cross the border illegally, which has resulted in the separation of families.
The agency called on the New Yorker to apologize Monday after the magazine’s fact-checker falsely accused an ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo.
The agent in question, Justin Gaertner, is an ICE forensics analyst and combat veteran who lost both of his legs when an IED detonated during his deployment in Afghanistan.
Mr. Gaertner said the tattoo is “Titan 2,” the symbol of his platoon in Afghanistan.
