Threatening the President and Other Acts of Terrorism
Threatening the President and Other Acts of Terrorism by Rory, The Daily Coin
When did it become acceptable to threaten the President of the United States? Why haven’t any of these domestic terrorist been arrested charged with threatening the President and charged with federal felony hate crimes?
According to Wikipedia there should be several dozen, if not several hundred, people detained, questioned and probably prosecuted for these threats. This is no laughing matter and these idiot “celebrities” need to sit down and shut up. We put up with Obama and Bush jr. running the country into the ground for the past 16 years. Not one idle threat that I can recall.
Threatening the President of the United States is a class E felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States“. This also includes presidential candidates and former Presidents. The United States Secret Service investigates suspected violations of this law and monitors those who have a history of threatening the President. Threatening the President is considered a political offense. Immigrants who commit this crime can be deported.
The latest, and I feel confident not the last, threat is from Rosie O’Donnell. These “entertainers” apparently did not learn from Kathy Griffins career ending stunt just a couple of months ago.
ZeroHedge reported about this threat on July 19, 2017
The actress is drawing criticism from conservatives after tweeting a link to an online game called “Push Trump Off A Cliff.” The game, which is so low-quality it really does look like O’Donnell programmed it herself, allows players to press a button and watch an animated President Trump…jump off a cliff.

“Sadly, violence has become an acceptable form of dissent for liberals these days,” said a post on Young Conservatives.

This is to say nothing of the endless threats documented by Mark Dice during the campaign and soon after the election of President Trump.
I must have overlooked all these threats to Obama and the other Presidents elected before Trump. I am getting older, so it is possible they have slid down the memory hole. Also, I feel confident, if there had been any threats of this nature made against Obama the perpetrators would have been arrested before the sun went down on the day of the threat. Not so much with Trump.
Mark Dice, Media Analyst on You Tube, has produced several videos covering the threats against Trump while running for President and after being elected President. I went to You Tube and conducted a simple search – Mark Dice threats to President Trump. In the upper right corner You Tube stated there were a total of 3,410 results.
Here are just a handful of results – you tell me if any of this material fits with the definition of “Presidential Threat…” as presented above.
And who could forget these two videos
This is to say nothing of these also being federal felony hate crimes – a whole other set of charges that should be investigated. Sadly, nothing is being done. Sadly, “Russia did it” is the only thing the deadstream media can focus on, because it increases their ratings and their revenue. Meanwhile, people have been and continue to threaten the President of the United States.
Part of me is very grateful for all this nonsense coming from the “progressive” liberals. It not only shows their true colors, but it is driving people away, daily, from their message by the hundreds or thousands. The absolute carnage coming to the Democratic Party in 2018 is going to be epic!! The Democrats will be able to thank the following idiots for this epic fail:
Rosie O’Donnell, Kathy Griffin, each person in the videos above, Madonna, Ashley Judd, The Women’s March and their vagina hats, Johnny Depp, Leonardo De Caprio, Meryl Streep, CNN, “Russia did it!!”, Saturday Night Live and any and all of the other Hollywood types who have been frothing at the mouth for the past year over Donald Trump. The stench is beginning to choke the life out of the message.
Let’s not forget, the Democrats have “the big tent” and are the inclusive party. Inclusive, as long as you think, act and believe how they think, act and believe. Step outside the line, and well, you may be on the receiving end of death threats or violence or having your home burn to the ground.
