I’ve read all of the angst about the guy in Utah that got smoked when the FBI paid him a visit. I’ve listened to those who claim this is a sign that its time to go dark. That it’s a sign that the Feds are picking on him.
It isn’t any of those things.
The guy has been issuing rather explicit death threats against specific politicians for years. Posting pictures of himself in a ghillie suit holding a rifle. He’s had multiple previous visits from the Feds. With all of that, he kept doing it. It’s always been illegal to issue death threats. This isn’t a sign of targeted assassination. It’s an armed dumbass who didn’t know when to keep his bloviating mouth shut. There is a line, and he crossed it.
If you want to off a politico, then keep your mouth shut and just do it. If you want to run your mouth, then know that there are things you can’t do, and threatening to kill people is one of them. When you ignore that advice, expect to be the target of some FBI investigations, and when they DO come over, it’s a bad idea to point guns at them. That’s been true since forever.
