As members of the Trump administration continue to be harassed and aggressively confronted, while members of the media and entertainment communities egg them on, we have this latest development – as excerpted from Margaret Harding McGill’s article at politico.com:
A California man is charged with threatening to kill FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s children because he was “angry” about the repeal of net neutrality regulations, the Justice Department said today.
Markara Man, 33, of Norwalk was arrested in Los Angeles and charged with threatening to murder an immediate family member of a U.S. official.
Prosecutors say Man sent three emails to Pai in December 2017, the month the Republican-led FCC voted to repeal the Obama-era net neutrality rules.
One of the emails, sent Dec. 20, to Pai’s government and personal accounts had the subject line “Cheers.” The body of the email listed the names and addresses of three preschools in and around Arlington, Va., where Pai lives, followed by, “I will find your children and I will kill them,” according to the affidavit against Man.
Are you surprised by this? If so, you have not watched cable news or read newspapers since President Trump took office.
From last year, when a left wing lunatic opened fire on Republican congresspeople at a softball practice, almost killing Rep. Steve Scalise, to the physical assault on Senator Rand Paul at his own home, to the in-your-face confrontations with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, DHS Secretary Neilson and others…
…while ranting idiots like maxine waters, and michael moore, and the late night leftist talk show hosts, and various guests on MSNBC and CNN panels rationalize, even support their actions….
…why would this be any surprise at all?
And why would it be a surprise that this has happened after so many of these same ranting idiots assured us that there would be violence against media because Donald Trump dares to call the ongoing partisan attacks on him by so-called journalists “fake news”?
Even this week, how many of them blamed Trump for the Capital Gazette massacre in Annapolis, Maryland – before they knew a thing about the shooter who, it turned out, had a years-long vendetta against the newspaper that waswas completely unrelated to Trump or anything political at all?
There’s an old story about a guy who goes to the psychiatrist and is given a Rorschach test. The psychiatrist shows him an inkblot and asks him what he sees. He answers “sex”. The psychiatrist shows him another inkblot and gets the same answer.
After 34 inkblots with the same result, the psychiatrist says “You don’t have to spend a lot of money on session after session here. I can tell you your problem right now. You are obsessed with sex”.
And the guy answers “Me? I’m obsessed with sex? You’re the one showing those pictures”.
I used to think that story was a joke. But as I see media funneling anything and everything into an attack on President Trump, I’m starting to wonder if it wasn’t a joke at all, but a prediction.
