Man in custody after calling for "carnage" against Democrats.

Feds: Staten Island Man Angry Over Trump’s Loss Called for ‘Extermination’ of Democrats


A Staten Island man was taken into custody Tuesday after prosecutors say he called for “carnage” against Democrats and urged violence against those celebrating Joe Biden’s election win. Brian Maiorana, 54, repeatedly posted on social media about his desire for violence after he said the election had been “fraudulently stolen from us,” federal prosecutors said in a criminal complaint. “The carnage needs to come in the form of extermination of anyone that claims to be a democrat,” Maiorana wrote two days after the vote, according to the complaint. Then, as thousands took to the streets to celebrate when Biden was declared president-elect, he allegedly wrote, “All right thinking people need to hit the streets while these scumbags are celebrating and start blowing them away.” Prosecutors say he also referenced “the Jew Senator from Jew York” while apparently threatening Sen. Chuck Schumer, the Senate’s top Democrat.

“The Department of Justice will not stand idly by when people like the defendant allegedly threaten to kill elected officials, lawful protesters and law enforcement simply because of animus towards the outcome of an election,” Seth DuCharme, the acting U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said in a statement.

2. How many others would you guess . . .

. . . are out there doing the same thing?

However many there are, I sure hope they are identified and taken in too -- and widely publicized. Perhaps with enough reports like this other dangerous assholes railing in their basements will STFU. Like all bullies, these people are cowards at heart.

4. Here are 50 acts and specific threats from "normal" DT years 2016-2019

Violence in the name of Trump

My guess is that in this "inflamed" time, it's at least a couple hundred. . . with a majority inciting violence online without any clear plans to commit violence themselves.

6. Who incited him? Who is stirring up hared and anger by falsely claiming Biden stole the election?

They caught this, but don't you think there will be many more?

8. They have never been this angry. Their anger is off the charts. I know Republicans who

truly believe Biden stole the election. If you follow their logic, they should believe it is their patriotic duty to do something about it.

9. So why didn't that police captain in wherever the bumfuck who spouted about putting a bullet

in the head of Biden voters also get arrested? Yeah, he got fired. But where's the arrest?

The DOJ knows that "elected officials, lawful protesters, and law enforcement" voted for Biden too, right? So..........

13. A Staten Island... you will never find a more wretched hive...

of scum and villainy. My mother was born and raised there and I spent most of my childhood back and forth between Staten Island and New Jersey. It's full of deplorables, including many members of my family with whom I no longer speak. Bunch of racists.
