"You're the enemy of the people!" - California man charged with threatening to shoot up the Boston Globe

Parroting much of the same language used by President Trump in his constant barrage against the media, federal authorities charged 68 year old Californian Robert Chain of repeatedly attacking the Boston Globe in phone calls as “the enemy of the people” and threatened to come shoot employees in the head.

He has been charged with making threatening communications in interstate commerce. Hopefully a nice example is made out of him.

But how can this be? I have been repeatedly told that only libs are capable of violent rhetoric like this. I’m very disillusioned now.

Donald’s re-tweeting about the Enemy of the People this morning.

Someone, or multiple someone’s, are going to end up dead as a result of this dangerous rhetoric coming from the man with the loudest megaphone in the world.


why would the left do this?

This has absolutely nothing to do with Trumps rhetoric.

I would bet my sig line that it turns out this guy was a liberal.

According to court documents, immediately following the announcement, Chain began making threatening calls to the Boston Globe ’s newsroom. In the calls, Chain referred to the Globe as “the enemy of the people” and threatened to kill newspaper employees. In total, it is alleged that Chain made approximately 14 threatening phone calls to the Globe between August 10 and 22, 2018.

It is further alleged that on Aug. 16, 2018, the day the coordinated editorial response was published in the Boston Globe , Chain called the Globe newsroom and threatened to shoot Globe employees in the head “later today, at 4 o’clock.” As a result of that call, local law enforcement responded to the Globe ’s offices and maintained a presence outside the building to ensure the safety of the employees.

That’s one hell of a liberal troll

I know. Liberals are crazy. Worst thing we could do as a county would be allowing liberals to control the government again.
