“In all three messages, Kless referenced his hatred for Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar — repeatedly calling her a ‘towel head’ and a member of the Taliban,” the New Times reports.

The Miami Herald adds that Kless “allegedly said he’d like to throw Omar off the Empire State building.”

Tlaib, according to the New Times. “You know what? She’s lucky she’s just getting death threats, bitch. So are you. Alright? You’re lucky they’re just threats. Motherfucker. Cause the day when the bell tolls, whore, and this country comes to a war, there will be no more threats. Your life will be on the fucking line.”.........................................

U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-California, was among the members of Congress threatened by Tamarac’s John Kless, according to a criminal complaint in federal court. Elise Amendola AP



Federal authorities have arrested a South Florida man and accused him of leaving menacing, racist and homophobic messages on the office voicemails of several Democratic members of Congress, two of whom are running for president.

John Kless, 49, has been charged with making threatening communications after U.S. Capitol Police say he called up the Washington offices of U.S. Sen. Cory Booker and U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Eric Swalwell Tuesday and unleashed foul, profanity-laced rants peppered with death threats. Police say they’d also recently investigated Kless for threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.


Kless, of Tamarac, was arrested Friday and made his initial appearance in court, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida. He was released on bond with a GPS monitor and a requirement that he stay away from guns and the people he

According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Kless called Swalwell’s office Tuesday and warned that taking guns from Americans would be his “death bed.” Swalwell, a California congressman who frequently appears on cable news, is running for president on a gun-safety platform and recently held a guns town hall in Broward County attended by some parents of students slain last year in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, located about six miles from Kless’ apartment.

........................................
“The day you come after our guns, motherf***er, is the day you’ll be dead,” Kless said, according to the complaint.

A readout of the message Kless allegedly left for Booker, a black senator from New Jersey, included racial slurs and a defense of the white supremacist found guilty of murder after he drove his car into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville in 2017. In his message to Tlaib, police say Kless referred to the Muslim congresswoman from Michigan as a member of the Taliban.


Police say they were highly alarmed due to the fact that Tlaib is scheduled to visit Florida this weekend.........................................................

Man arrested after allegedly making racist death threats against Omar, Tlaib and Booker, officials say

By Eli Rosenberg / The Washington Post
Posted at 6:50 PM

TAMARAC — A Florida man was arrested and charged Friday with allegedly making a series of threatening phone calls to Democratic officials, in which he ranted in explicitly racist terms about Muslims, black people and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

John Kless, 49, of the Fort Lauderdale area, was charged with making an interstate threat, a crime punishable by up to five years in prison.

Marlene Fernandez-Karavetsos, a spokeswoman for Fajardo Orshan, the U.S. Attorney for Southern Florida, said Kless was expected to be released on a $25,000 bond on Friday afternoon. She said that some weapons owned by him had been seized but declined to give specifics.

. . .

“You’re gonna die,” Kless continued, according to the complaint. “You’ll be your death bed...along with all the rest of you Democrats.”

"It was your Taliban bitch, the one who opened up her fucking towel-head mouth about how 'some people did it,'" Kless allegedly said in his message to Tlaib. "You know what? She's lucky she's just getting death threats, bitch. So are you. All right? You're lucky they're just threats, motherfucker, 'cause the day when the bell tolls, whore, and this country comes to a war, there will be no more threats. Your life will be on the fucking line."

South Florida Man Arrested for Threatening to Kill Democratic Lawmakers, Including Ilhan Omar

Kless allegedly continued to say the following:

No one wants to fucking hear you or that other little whore. I'd like to take that bitch and throw her right off the Empire State Building, that fucking whore. Tell her to shut her fucking mouth. You fucking fuck her all the time probably. So tell her to shut the fuck up, all right? From one towel head to another. You stanking, fucking, smelly, fucking bitch. Fuck off. I wish all of you the worst. You can go fuck off in life. Fuck you, and fuck Mohammed too, you bitch fucking cunt.

Kless also allegedly criticized Swalwell's stance on gun control. Kless reportedly said if Swalwell enacted gun-safety laws, someone would kill the lawmaker. He also called Swalwell a communist and, oddly, the N-word. (Swalwell is white.)

"The day you come after our guns, motherfucker, is the day you'll be dead," Kless said, according to a federal indictment. He added, "You're gonna die. Don't wanna do that shit, boy. You'll be [on] your deathbed, motherfucker, along with the rest of you Democrats. So if you want death, keep that shit up, motherfucker."

10. There's got to be something a little bit off about any Trumpie.

They have a need to hero-worship someone who can con them and promise them the moon. Have something missing inside of themselves that he promises to fill. Devoid of what--meaning? Life is not all it was cracked up to be, and here's someone who will fix everything?

How's that working out for them? Still believing in the facade that is all there is to this guy in the White House? Still believing in the lies? I suppose having gone this far, they would feel foolish reversing themselves.

But that's just what they already are--extremely foolish. Dupes of the Con.
