The election of President Elect Donald Trump has brought about a lot of discourse. More so than ever before. There are riots and protests in the street and violence is breaking out all over. Some argue that it has been encouraged by liberal race baiters like Michael Moore and Al Sharpton. It did not take long for people to start threatening to assassinate Donald Trump.
A 24 year old Ohio man was officially charged in federal court for threatening to murder President Elect Donald Trump via Twitter on election night. The young mans name is Zachary Benson and he lives in Fairview Park, Cleveland. The tweet was posted shortly before Trump was declared the winner. His tweet stated,
“My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don’t care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease (sic) existing.”
However, just seconds before he had tweeted,
“Diplomacy. F***ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas.”
Just mere hours later he was arrested by the Secret Service and interviewed. Now that he has finally been elected the Secret Service and FBI are likely taking these threats even more seriously now more than ever. Whether you like Donald Trump or not it is never ok to threaten to harm someone, let along murder them.
So many have descended into anarchy and chaos simply because their candidate did not win and it is absolutely ludicrous. The funniest part of it all is that many of these protestors and rioters are people who never even went out to vote. Yet they have the audacity to riot in the streets when they did nothing to prevent the outcome they do not like.
Hopefully, when President Elect Trump takes office threats such as these will not be taken lightly. That he will keep his promise to crack down on violent crime and make our streets safer and greater again devoid of hoodlums such as these.
