It’s always seems a bit surprising whenever Democrats openly express a desire to kill us. You’d think we’d be used to it by now. They are the party of real political violence. After the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters, Michelle Obama and other leftwing figures openly told their followers to commit acts of violence against Trump supporters and Republican Congressmen. It worked. And today a prominent Trump-supporting Republican Member of Congress – Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida – appears to be in actual danger.
What’s the Justice Department doing to protect him? Nothing! And they didn’t even bother to tell him directly that they’re not going to protect him.
It was just four years ago when Crooked Hillary, Holder, Waters and Michelle Obama told their followers to attack Republicans – and 66-year-old “Bernie Bro” James Hodgkinson took them up on it. Hodgkinson drove from his home in Illinois to Alexandria, VA, where he shot up the Republican congressional baseball game. Alexandria police fortunately killed Hodgkinson after a 10-minute gunfight. Republican Congressman Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack and almost died.
Those Republicans are fortunate that this previous attack happened in 2017. If it had happened in 2021, the cops might not have actually defended them.
Rep. Matt Gaetz made a stunning announcement on the House floor this week. A deranged Democrat has been threatening to kill him. That person had then traveled across the country to Washington, DC, where he is now presumably hunting Matt Gaetz. And the Justice Department under Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland is refusing to arrest the man.
Gaetz announced on the House floor:
“I think someone may be trying to kill me, and if they’re successful, I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest.”
This isn’t a joke. A lunatic in Portland, OR who goes by the Twitter handle “CIA Bob” has been threatening to kill Gaetz since October 8th. After 13 straight days of CIA Bob threatening to kill a sitting US Representative, Twitter finally disconnected the guy’s account on October 21st.
Here are the messages that CIA Bob sent to Congressman Gaetz in the days before he drove to Washington, DC:
“Lookie here pal. I live in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.”
“I am going to wipe you off the face of the earth. Have a good day.”
“You will meet me.”
“Run and hide.”
“Last rights are according to me.”
After sending those messages directly to Rep. Gaetz on a public platform – AND pictures of himself – CIA Bob (real name unknown) traveled to Washington, DC. Gaetz informed the Capitol Police that this lunatic was clearly threatening to murder him. The Capitol Police, to their credit, informed the Department of Justice and recommended that CIA Bob be arrested.
When he never heard anything back from them, Gaetz contacted the federal Protective Services Bureau (part of the DOJ) and spoke with the head of the Investigations and Threat Assessments division. He was informed that, “The Capitol Police had recommended the arrest of this individual, and that the Department of Justice refused to do so.”
Gaetz further stated on the House floor:
“If my name weren’t Gaetz—if it were Omar, or Tlaib—you can bet this person would have been arrested because that’s what the Capitol Police recommended, but the Department of Justice really doesn’t seem to care so much when it’s Republicans.”
Yeah. That’s pretty much how all Americans have felt about the Department of Justice ever since they sent a SWAT team and a CNN camera crew to Roger Stone’s house for a pre-dawn raid, over an accusation that he had misremembered details from an email from two years previously. We have two systems of justice in this country now.
If someone threatened a Democrat congressman or congresswoman right now, the Department of Justice would drop the hammer on that person. As they should. But when a MAGA conservative is threatened, the DOJ yawns and wishes them luck. If they’re willing to stand back and allow a person who is probably an Antifa operative kill a sitting Republican congressman, just imagine how those same people at the DOJ would feel about ordinary Americans who are Trump supporters. These people really do want us dead. Plan accordingly.
