Police charged a Florida man this week with making threatening phone calls to several Democratic members of Congress, in each case complaining about freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar.
U.S. Capitol Police identified John Joseph Kless as the man responsible for calls to Rep. Rashida Tlaib and presidential hopefuls Rep. Eric Swalwell and Sen. Cory Booker, and in a criminal complaint quoted the man’s racist diatribes against those lawmakers and Ms. Omar.
In the indictment documentation against JJ Kless (sorry I can not link to the indictment or risk violating ToS) he is recorded at least three times mentioning Trump by name in apology and in support.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming Obese Donald Trump for this man’s obvious mental aberration driving his off the wall behavior. No. He is 100% at fault for his dive into the deep end. Besides, he is, from what I have seen reported registered Unaffiliated. So no jumping to conclusions based on any R affiliation.
However after reading the indictment it does appear he may have gotten some notion of cover for his nasty tirades by invoking America and the President’s name.
Apparently JJ is married and had a decent income, a house, and is only 49, so I wonder if he has just thrown all of that in the dustbin just because he could not control his bigotry, anger, and mouth?
It is a grand deflection and prevarication as there was a Thread here in which I did participate regarding Hodgkinson. We did discuss him. Interestingly he wrote letters to the editor of a local paper that had actually published a letter to the editor from me.
It was a newspaper my folks had delivered for years. He was a resident of a town not far from where I lived in Illinois. Shoot (sorry) we might have even crossed paths since I spent a lot of time in his home town.
But it seems even the Right Wingers here at the time couldn’t really sustain a long discussion on him?
What I am interested to know is what is wrong with my OP such that a poster has to feel some need to come in here and make false accusations against me?
I understand the sentiment. It is never going to happen. But I understand.
It is like every time I see the media line up outside the White House and Obese Donald heads to the waiting chopper, they know he will lie, they know he will make ■■■■ up, they know he will dodge and weave and never speak honestly, yet they slather and fight and jostle to ask him questions.
That thread on the old board had many “liberals” participate. I even think the thread surpassed 1000 posts. I know I was one of them. If memory serves me correct, every one on the left condemned the shooter and wished for speedy recoveries for the Congressmen.
