U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- A Washington “gun control activist” is facing federal charges after threatening to shoot sheriffs who have publicly pledged not to enforce citizen disarmament edicts. On Friday, Heavy.com posted one of its “Five Fast Facts” on the young, self-identified Marxist who “admitted to FBI and Secret Service investigators that he had every intention of carrying out the violence he talked about on social media.”
There’s no need to reword here what plenty of others have written about the “suspect” or about the I-1639 measure that triggered him. For that reason, I also see no need to name him or post his mug shot. Instead, I’d like to use this space to make some observations I don’t see being widely discussed.
For starters, the guy’s “embrace death” url Facebook page and posts are still up — at this writing — and that’s unusual for a few reasons.
He’s posted real threats of violence, such as “f*****g republican terrorists i am going to kill every single one of them” and “I-1639 is law. sheriffs that are non compliant will be shot. by me.”
With all the “shadowbanning” and suppression against “conservative” voices, that seems more than a bit of a double-standard.
Case in point, I had a Dec. 15 post reminding readers that it was Bill of Rights Day disallowed from sharing because it somehow violated “community standards.”
Don’t get me wrong: I hope this doesn’t somehow trigger Facebook to remove the page (and if they do, I saved a copy of it). Too often the social media company reaction is to close down pages of those involved in crimes—especially if heinous. The problem with that is, it makes readers dependent on official sources and the “mainstream press” for all information, and takes away the ability to gather information on our own. And it’s not exactly like “the authorities” and the DSM have established great reputations for unbiased completeness and accuracy.
Some self control-challenged loser having a meltdown where his anger boils over into threats of violence is not that much of an exception to the rule. We’ve talked in the past about “common sense gun safety advocates” who’ve gone off the deep end and shot people and surmised much of the distrust over you and me being armed is likely projection from people who know they can’t be trusted to restrain their baser impulses.
Another of the guy’s posts, a “Marxist Meme” advocating shooting “the bourgeoisie,” recalls the “solidarity songs” from the (Bernie Sanders-affiliated) Democratic Socialists of America, with such inclusive lyrics as:
“Are you sleeping, Are you sleeping,
And when the revolution comes,
We’ll kill you all with knives and guns,
That makes the sharing on his Facebook page of graphics from the Socialist Rifle Association worth mentioning, especially considering the bipolar contradictions that group admits to in its bylaws:
“Our goal is to provide an alternate to the main stream, toxic, right-wing, and non-inclusive gun … “
Then read “Section Two: Grounds of Denial” if you really want to see what “non-inclusive” looks like. These are the domestic enemies the Founders warned us against.
There’s one other thing about the angry cybercommie that should be of interest: Take a look at all of his Facebook “friends.”
You can bet the Feds who arrested him have just to see if they can find other persons of interest – at least the ones who aren’t already working for them.
