“A man from upstate New York has been charged with threatening to assault and murder U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said. Patrick Carlineo, 55, allegedly called Omar’s office on March 21 and told a staffer “Do you work for the Muslim Brotherhood? Why are you working for her, she’s a (expletive) terrorist. I’ll put a bullet in her (expletive) skull,” according to the criminal complaint.”
It’s pretty surprising that regular, impresionable folks, are doing bad stuff these days. I’m not sure where they’re getting this hate or why they threatening violence.
“Investigators reminded Carlineo that lying to the FBI is a crime and there was a recording of the phone calls, WROC reports. He said he couldn’t remember exactly what he said, and it could be something like that.”
He claimed he said one thing until they told him they had a tape.
These people threatening violence need to be locked up.
Omar, who represents Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district, tweeted about the poster: "No wonder why I am on the ‘Hitlist’ of a domestic terrorist and ‘Assassinate Ilhan Omar’ is written on my local gas stations."
Omar is saying that she’s being threatened in her own hometown? I’m glad they caught the guy and I also hope that any punishment he gets through our legal system, gets broadcast loudly. Even though both sides are very heated right now, this never gives any American the right to use violence…period.
