Madison Cawthorn is getting dragged on Twitter, yet again.
Republican North Carolina Congressman Madison Cawthorn made headlines recently after a bizarre and convoluted rant he made to his supporters.
Cawthorn, at only 26 years-old, is currently the youngest U.S. Congressman in office.
A video of Cawthorn began making rounds around the internet, courtesy of Right Wing Watch—an activist group that exposes the antics of right-wing extremists.
The video showed Cawthorn urging the mothers in the crowd to raise their boys "to be monsters."

In the video, Cawthorn made the strange claim society was trying to "demasculate" young men because "they don't want people who are going to stand up."
"Our culture today is trying to completely demasculate all the young men."
"All you moms here—the ones who I said are the most vicious in our movement—if you are raising a young man, please raise them to be a monster."
Cawthorn claimed because society wanted to emasculate men, mothers should then raise their boys "to be monsters" in an attempt to fight back against society's supposed war on masculinity.
While Cawthorn's words led to cheers among his audience, many others—ranging from social media users to other politicians—felt the rant was both bizarre and unhinged.
Democratic California Representative Ted Lieu commented on Cawthorn's words, saying:
"America is an exceptional nation precisely because we don't raise monsters."
"Radical Republicans are dangerous."

This isn't the first time Cawthorn caused controversy.
Cawthorn is known for his extremist right-wing takes, such as his unwavering support for former U.S. President Donald Trump
Cawthorn stood behind Trump during his run for reelection in 2020 and fed into the ultra-conservative conspiracy theory the election was rigged against Trump.
Cawthorn was quoted as saying there would be "bloodshed" if "our elections continue to be rigged."
In addition, Cawthorn proudly posted pictures of himself at Nazi leader Adolf Hitler's vacation spot, calling it a lifelong goal.
