Damn Florida, why does it always have to be you?

Today another South Florida man was arrested, this time for allegedly threatening to kill four Democrats.
Federal authorities today announced that John Kless, a 49-year-old resident of Tamarac in Broward County, called three Democrats at their Washington, D.C. offices April 16 and left voicemail messages threatening murder. The lawmakers included California Congressman Eric Swalwell, Detroit Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker.
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. In his message to Tlaib’s office, Kless referenced Omar’s recent “some people did something” comments about 9/11 — a statement Omar made to argue that all Muslims should not be punished for the actions of the few who committed the attacks. But conservatives have taken Omar’s comments entirely out of context to falsely argue that Omar was diminishing the impact or tragedy of 9/11.
“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.”
Well, he seems nice.
Kless was no less loquacious when threatening others.
This is what he left for Rep. Eric Swalwell:
“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.”
Kless repeatedly used the N-word to refer to Booker and called him a “monkey,” according to court records, adding he wanted to kill black men like the senator. “You’re a fucking disgrace,” Kless allegedly said. “We need to kill all you motherfuckers, man, every fucking one of you, man.” He added that the terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia — in which a white supremacist drove a car into progressive protester Heather Heyer — killed only “one fucking person.” He then said Booker should tell his “colleague with the towel on her head to shut up about 9/11.”
It will probably not shock people to learn that potty mouth used some of his phone time defending Donald Trump and demanding that people stop criticizing him.
You know the really disturbing thing is that almost all Trump supporters seem to only about three beers away from this kind violent rhetoric every day of their life.
Clearly the “best kind of people” support Donald Trump.
