Somebody takes their politics a little too seriously.

A Florida man was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Friday for threatening to behead U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, federal prosecutors said.

The man, 58-year-old Robert Pratersch of Kissimmee, in September 2018 left three voicemail messages at Sanders’ Vermont office where he made anti-Semitic threats and threatened to kill Sanders by beheading him in an “ISIS-style” video.

There does not seem to be any definitive link between Trump’s recent charge that Jews who vote for Democrats are traitors and this threat, but I am sure it does not help to tamp down Anti-Jewish sentiment when he says things like that. 

You know I really dislike both Mitch McConnell and Devin Nunes, yet I have never once threatened to kill or injure them.

Political disagreements are one thing, but it seems some on the Right have hard time leaving physical violence off the table.
