Maryland Democrat Party Official and Lawyer Calls for Doxing ‘Terrorist’ Gun Owners

By calling for doxing them, Robbie Leonard shows us who the real homegrown terrorist is. (Graphic obtained from Delegate Robin Grammer's Facebook page)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Maryland ‘Gun Bill Day’ Turns Ugly – State Dem Secretary Threatens to ‘Dox’ Protesters,” a Monday story in the Washco Chronicle reports. “Many of those testifying arrived in shirts stating that they “will not comply” with new gun control laws. This took a turn for the worst when the Maryland Democratic Party secretary, Robbie Leonard, threatened to ‘dox’ those testifying today.”

Leonard’s Facebook post, which he has since deleted, shows a photo of a gun owner outside the hearings holding an “I will not comply” sign, and another photo of several gun owners inside the hearing wearing shirts bearing the same message.

“Time to dox some homegrown terrorists,” Leonard advocated.

“I hope the FBI runs the name of every witness who is wearing a t-shirt that says ‘we will not comply,’” he wrote in another. “They’re a bunch of terrorists in the making.”

“Terrorists” like the untold numbers in California, Connecticut, and New York who have refused to register their so-called “assault weapons,” no doubt. Other edicts in other states have met similar resistance, and don’t be surprised to see further defiance when the “Trumpstock” ban takes effect later this month.

Besides, it's not like Democrats don't disregard laws they oppose with so-called “Sanctuary Cities” and the like.

One question: Do these “homegrown terrorists” who its “time to dox” include all those “I will not comply” sheriffs in multiple states refusing to enforce citizen disarmament edicts? Maybe Leonard would like to dox fellow Marylander Sheriff Mike Lewis.

Such “terrorists” have honorable historical precedents.

Widespread defiance, when all else fails, is something I’ve taken to calling a “new paradigm,” and while that holds true for many gun rights activists who have been forced to make the terrible decision between surrender to an edict or personal risk for disobeying it, it is. But it’s not really new. It has a long and proud tradition.

Back in the 18th Century, before the colonies won independence, a jury in the trial of publisher John Peter Zenger heeded his defense attorney, Alexander Hamilton, and refused to convict him of libel by defying the law which at the time said the truth was no defense. The 19th Century saw philosopher Henry David Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience essay, and later, law-breaking abolitionists helping escaped slaves via the Underground Railway. In the 20th Century, civil rights actions, memorably exemplified by Rosa Parks refusing to sit in the back of the bus, showed the power of unified people standing up and declaring their rights were to be served by the state, not suppressed by it.

Indeed, it was an act of ultimate civil disobedience, manifesting itself as active resistance, in which Captain John Parker and his Lexington militia defied British Major John Pitcairn’s order to “Throw down your arms, ye villains, ye Rebels, Disperse!” The insurrectionists were subjects of the Crown, their lawful government. There’s no getting around it: They were lawbreakers and criminals. So were the seditious men who the following year pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, and their sacred Honor, and signed the “treasonous” Declaration of Independence.

But enough of real Americans. Let’s get back to this “progressive” pinhead who exemplifies the ugly, subversive face of the modern Democrat Party now that the openly socialist young radicals feel confident enough to take the mask off.

By taking the Facebook post down, Leonard exhibits the behavior of a cowardly opportunist. If he really had the courage of his convictions, he’d leave it up and double down. And like his collectivist forebears who came before him (after all, it’s not like Opposite Day “progressivism” actually has any new ideas), any history found to be inconvenient to the agenda can simply be “vanished.”

Leonard’s got another problem, and one bigger than outing his own moral perversity: He’s projecting as to who the terrorist is. ‘Doxing” reveals the character of a sadistic coward of the lowest order. Appropriately, causing such fear and putting victims at potentially lethal risk has resulted in prosecution and substantial criminal penalties.

And Leonard is more than just a Democrat apparatchik: He’s also an attorney, bringing sudden attention to the Law Offices of Evan K. Thalenberg, P.A., its partners and associates; Chair of the Baltimore County Democratic Party; an alternate delegate to the Democratic National Convention; a member of the Electoral College; and he “is licensed to practice law in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia. He is also licensed in the U.S. District Courts for the District of Maryland and the District of Columbia.”

In other words, he is an officer of the court publicly endorsing the crime of doxing his political opponents and urging all of his social media followers to join him. Talk about irresponsibly riling a mob, and he has to know that some will be inclined to translate words into actions. Since we're talking about an experienced lawyer, the words “knew or should have known” come to mind.

It sure sounds like something worthy of bringing to the attention of the respective bar associations linked to above, via professional conduct complaints.

Unless such noise is made, look for this to blow over, because this is a story the “mainstream” press is happily ignoring. I was given a link to one account by a news tip correspondent and had to trace it through several other websites and do some searching on my own to corroborate claims, including on NRA-ILA’s news feed. But at this writing, despite the fact that the story has been out since Monday, only one account appears under the Google “News” tab, and none of the local papers, TV or radio stations or any of the major players want to touch it (think “lies of omission”).

David,

Sir you have written one of your finest articles ever! When we wrote for the Examiner before it went to defunk, I had read a wide variety of your articles that were just truly superb, but the article above has surpassed all your previous examples concerning your superior writing skills!

I want to thank you for not only presenting superbly empirical evidence for your conclusions, but doing so in style that made the reading exceedingly enjoyable!

I hail you sir, your writing is wonderfully enjoyable, and very educational!

Cheers from Central Wyoming!

TFE,

Understand…2A and the entire Constitution is DEAD. It has been usurped time and time again. Not one usurper is held accountable. Not one seditious and treasonous bastard has had his/her neck stretched.

It is coming down to terminating those .gov scum who would disarm and enslave traditional Americans.

BTW….why hasn’t the Commander-in-Chief ordered armed US military to defend our southern border ? And defend it with deadly force !

Treason…he should be punished for treason…if we actually prosecuted and punished for treason…half the shitheads in congress, political parties etc…wouldnt be doing all the crazy shit they are doing now…they would be more choosey about what to propose to become new laws. I think we should reclaim our American history, man up and do what needs to be done to salvage our freedom and protect all our unalienable rights.

Robbie Leonard has lost all credibility by advocating false allegations against people exercising their First Amendment enshrined Civil Rights. He has proved that he does not believe in the peoples’ Civil Rights and is unworthy of being in government. Time to demand his resignation. His resignation means no income, no platform, no power to use wrongfully.

demand his resignation at the local district Attorney’s Office by filing an official complaint and insisting he be indicted for felony perjury.. he swore an oath to uphold and defend and enfore the Constituions of both his own state and that of the United States. His present conduct is in clear violation of that oath. Once indicted, no more guns, might even be forced to step down from public office. Once convicted, no more guns, no more lawyering, no more political office holding. Oh, and ALL his information will then be public record, as is the case with all felons… Read more »

Interesting. It is OK for an AG who takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution and laws of the nation thinks it OK for a state to ignore federal laws on marijuana and illegal aliens, and supports “sanctuary” states and cities, and requires taxpayer dollars to provide welfare to illegal aliens. Yet then calls people who understand “shall not be infringed” domestic terrorists. Would look to me like some 2A friendly lawyer could sue him for his own violations of the law.

I have been involved with Armed Civil Disobedience since 1994. My home state decided to pass their own version of the federal “assault weapons ban” that did not have a the 2004 sunset provision. It was then expanded in 2013 to also include a whole set of draconian new gun laws. Once the government changes the laws to make you a felon today for what was legal yesterday, then what’s another paper felony mean? NOTHING! The Armed Civil Disobedience of Non-Compliance works when the following principles are followed: DENY-DEFY-DECEIVE-EVADE-RESIST-SMUGGLE-DEFEND 1).

Amanda, sadly, they don’t care. They believe that ‘a few’ lives are worth their utopia. A utopia of compliance and fear, but that is the utopia they seek, nonetheless. I wish my mother had been armed against my my father (and various step fathers and boyfriends thereafter). Many beatings, burns, lacerations, and more occurred over the years, to which the police turned a blind eye on the few occasions that ‘someone’ got them to come out. As a 2, 5, 7, 8 year-old there was little I could do, but I tried…and the results were predictable… It wasn’t until husband… Read more »

@ Amanda It is always a shame when kids have to go through things like happened to you and your family while growing up. Many times this breaks the kid and from that time on life has no value to them. I have read your posts here before but you did not address this in your posts. I think it is remarkable you have grown up and still have the values that adults tried to take away. You must have learned your best lessons from your mother. Stay safe.

Because they direction he’s taking will create homegrown revolutionaries.

The Maryland Socialist-Communist Democrat (it is not DEMOCRATIC party, there is nothing democratic about that party) Party Secretary, Comrade Robbie Leonard, should be arrested, tried for terrorists activities and treason, convicted, sentenced to death and given the choice of execution by firing squad or guillotine. Oh, and no blind fold with either!

I guess if I have to become a terrorist to defend my American heritage and my beliefs then so be it. That’s what i did when I joined the Army in 1965 and after became a law enforcement officer. I earned my retirement but I’m still ready to go to war against my enemies , surrounding me, right here in America. It’s time to KICK ASS and enjoy doing so.

Our great Founders rebelled and waged war over 2 issues- exorbitant taxes (taxation without representation is BS. The colonists ALWAYS paid taxes – read Ben Franklin’s autobiography- but only became rebellious when those taxes becam oppressive) and, gun control (the red coats attempted to seize the colonist’s powder and arms at Lexington and Concorde). Ironically, the modern democrat party has higher taxes and gun control in their official party platform. They are the domestic enemies our Founders warned us about. Scumbags like Robbie Leonard would already be dead if this was occurring 250 years ago. A “winner take all, once… Read more »

The Democrats does the same thing to unborn am born babies. It’s called abortion, they murder hundreds maybe even a million each year.To me there is no difference between communist dems an the nazi ss that murdered all the Jews.
