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

Courtesy of the Miami New Times:

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.”

Cory Booker:

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.

    OT?
    https://www.politicususa.com/2019/04/20/april-ryans-calls-for-sarah-sanders-to-resign-have-the-white-house-rattled.html

    The White House is very concerned. I got a call today because as you know, I called her a liar, and the White House tried to explain to me what it was. A lie is a lie is a lie. She calls us fake news. She’s a fake press secretary who’s disseminating lies.

    From that sacred podium to give this information that is wrongful. People are not going to be able to trust her or even this administration. It’s even bigger than Sarah at this point. It’s now the president. It’s now his minions. Can you trust, and the answer is no.

    the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. “

    Suppose a POTUS directed SecDef and CJCS to surround the Capitol with tanks and to arrest all opposition members of Congress, and suppose they patriotically disobey that order. Wouldn’t that POTUS still have committed an impeachable offense?

      ” WSHA did not support and had no knowledge of this amendment.

      This would also change the standard schedule for nurses, who mostly work thr­ee 12-hour shifts a week — a schedule that was developed primarily at their request. If the amendment becomes law, nurses would need to work five days a week to earn full-time pay,” stated Sauer.

      Sauer ended the statement with a call to action to have the amendment removed, “

    How long, with POS potus amping the hateful rhetoric, until Omar and/or AOC are taken out by yet another crazy?
    Just like Palin Gabby Giffords. “Wasn’t MY fault!” Uh huh.

      Palin was a flash in the pan, too stupid (still is), and has absolutely nothing going for her.
      Of course this is how she solves it. The Old Testament way. What a loser.

      Probably not.
