Death threats pile up against Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar

http://www.citypages.com/news/death-threats-pile-up-against-minnesota-rep-ilhan-omar/508246461


The call came to Omar's office on March 21, according to the FBI. Carlineo seemed unaware that threatening to kill a member of Congress amounted to the same kind of terrorism he supposedly detests. But he was thoughtful enough to leave his contact info and phone number.

When agents tracked him down at his home in Addison, New York, he told them he was a patriot, a Trump lover, and a hater of radical Muslims. As he saw it, he was merely carrying out the work of Thomas Jefferson. “If our forefathers were still alive, they’d put a bullet in her head,” he told the FBI.

Two days earlier, Omar was scheduled to speak at a Los Angeles banquet for the Council of American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights group. Prior to the event, a woman left a voicemail at the Hilton where it was to be held.

“What would you do if I told you your hotel was going to be bombed?" she asked. "That is exactly what’s going to happen if you allow the likes of Ilhan Omar into your hotel. She is a danger to American society and your hotel. You are not to allow her foot into there if you value your own safety. Do not allow her in there. Cancel the event.”

A month before that, the FBI arrested U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Hasson in Maryland. The white nationalist had been stockpiling weapons and preparing a hit list that included everyone from Sen. Elizabeth Warren to CNN's Don Lemon. Omar's name was included.


So, calling her a terrorist, then threatening terror makes it ok?

This just solidifies my support for her and my vote for her in 2020.

3. There's a documentary about her on iTunes right now.

If you look at the reviews, nearly every single one is from a Trump troll, and nearly every single one attacks her and not the movie. I reported all of them and will do so again. This is getting really ugly.

14. I hope we're both wrong, yes.

But, there are so many MAGA Cretins out there with weapons and you know a good number of them believe they would be heroes to their country (the Republic of Trumpistan) if they take out that "mooselem bitch raghead."

Hell I know a couple in this little town I live in who I expect would leap at the chance.

23. If and when they do, he or she will not be labeled a terrorist.

Or her death and act of terror.

No, the white person who does this would "have mental issues" and no doubt successfully plead insanity.

10. EACH threat IS a crime. Not a prelude to a crime; an actual crime.


The threats are terror. They are meant to create fear and inhibit her and others (in that they will fail). They are not threatening terror or terrorism, they are terrorism because they create fear.

12. Why are these people not being arrested?

These are criminal actions and should be punished accordingly. Do you think they would let it slide if white, republican politicians were receiving death threats?

The fore fathers did not have minds like you, you lobotomized Alex Jones butt-plugs. They may have done bad things but if they were a quarter as dumb as you, there would be no US, Darwinism in action.

21. Unmentioned in the City Pages article, but Carlineo has been arrested

CNN story here:

Hopefully, Carlineo doesn't get the patriot pass* from law enforcement. You know how it is when you just love America so gol-darned much that you have to phone in threats to members of Congress.

*Close cousin to the Affluenza Defense that lets rich people off the hook from being prosecuted like common criminals when they commit criminal acts.
