Who’s the real ignorant one? A person who threatens Rep. Joni Ernst? Or a Democrat Rep. Scott Hamann from Maine? Shouldn’t a threat against the President of the United States at least be investigated by the FBI? Wasn’t Kathy Griffin investigated? What is it with Democrats and threats these days?
H/T Western Journalism:
Four weeks after the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise inspired calls for a less violent tone in American politics, a Maine lawmaker has publicly used language implying a physical threat against President Donald Trump.
“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p—y,” Democratic state Rep. Scott Hamann posted on Facebook in the closing section of a long rant against Trump and his supporters.
“He’s an admitted rapist,” Hamann wrote. “Would you be okay with leaving him alone in a room with your wife?”
In the post, Hamann claims that Trump was “installed by the Russians.”
He also belittled Trump supporters, accusing them of receiving their news from only conservative sources.
“Don’t like the truth?” he asked. “Well then f— you, snowflake. You’re a f—ing p—y. And you people are destroying America.”
Hamann wrote that “100% of intelligent Americans agree that Trump is a complete loser. But go back to clinging to your guns because you’re afraid.”
Here’s a post on Twitter with Rep. Scott Hamann’s threat:
Now that we know this post from ME Dem Rep. Scott Hamann threatening violence against
@POTUS is real, let’s see how PPH & BDN report it.
The Democrat apologized for his remarks Wednesday.
“This is not language I typically use, it does not reflect my personal values and, while misguided, it was intended to make a visceral point about the devolving political discourse in America,” Hamann said.
However, the chair of the Maine Republican Party said action is needed after Hamann’s post.
“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Representative Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light,” Demi Kouzounas said in a statement.
No kidding! How about the FBI looking into that DEATH threat by Rep. Hamann?
Holy cow! Who’s the real one who is unhinged? Maybe he’s been smoking too much gange!
Rep. Scott Hamann is serving his third term in the Maine House of Representatives. He also serves on the Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee and the Joint Select Committee on Marijuana Legalization Implementation.
Threats seem to be trending. Just last week Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa was also threatened. I guess that’s just what Democrats seem to do best – mouth off.
An Omaha man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats against Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa.
Robert William Simet, 64, was arrested Friday morning. The FBI believes Simet made several statements to employees at Loess Hills Harley Davidson that were “threatening in nature” to Senator Ernst.
The supposed threats were made last Wednesday.
Loess Hills Harley Davidson was scheduled to host an event over the weekend where Ernst was expected to speak.
Simet also said “everyone in the government needs to be killed off” specifically, he said all congress members.
So Simet gets arrested by the FBI? Didn’t the FBI investigate Kathy Griffin when she held up the bloody head of Trump? Shouldn’t the FBI at least do the same with Rep. Hamann?
…and some advice to Rep. Hamann…maybe lay off a little on the gange next time you want to go on a rant against the President?
