Electoral College voters who are slated to vote for Trump have been receiving harassing emails and even death threats from Hillary Clinton supporters.
Hillary’s people want the Electors to vote for her instead of Trump because so far she is ahead in the popular vote. Of course, presidential elections aren’t decided by the popular vote, but by the Electoral College.
One Trump Elector in Michigan was threatened with death by a Hillary supporter. Michael Banerian, 22, explained to the Detroit News that, “You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die.’ I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
The Detroit News verified the threats.
The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth.
While some lobbying is peaceful, other electors report receiving intimidating emails or messages, Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson said Wednesday. The Detroit News couldn’t reach several electors on Wednesday.
“Hearing from them that they are also receiving threats, I’m interested in getting a consensus from the group … and seeing if it’s something that we should report to the police,” Anderson said. “It’s obviously something that we’re taking very seriously.”
Now, the Oath Keepers have responded to threats from Hillary’s terrorists in epic fashion. They are ready to protect any Electors who feel they are in danger. And Oath Keepers don’t mess around! They sent this email message to members and subscribers on Friday:
OFFER OF PROTECTION TO ELECTORS: Oath Keepers is hereby issuing a standing offer of volunteer protection to any of the Electoral College Electors who may feel threatened or in danger from leftist radicals attempting to coerce them into changing their vote as Electors. Any Elector who wants our assistance may contact us at: [email protected]
CALL TO ACTION: Due to the gravity of the threat to our Republic from terrorists attempting to steal the election through coercion, this is also a call to action to our state and local leaders, and in particular to our Community Preparedness Team (CPT) leaders, to prepare security details in each of the targeted states to be on standby for immediate deployment if a request for protection comes in from an Elector.
WHY WE ARE DOING THIS: In the wake of President-Elect Donald Trump’s victory on Election Night, Republican Electors across the country have received an increasing wave of harassment and threats, in the form of phone calls, emails, messages on social media, and even in-person visits to their homes, by leftists who seek to pressure those Electors into changing their votes from Trump to Clinton when the Electoral College meets on December 19, 2016. Such harassment and threats intensified after anti-Trump groups published online the names, addressed, phone numbers, emails, gender, and race of Republican Electors in states that went for Trump.
Please feel free to repost this notice online, or to pass on to Electors who may need our help. However, Electors are encouraged to initiate contact with us through the above oathkeepers.org email address only and to be wary of anyone contacting them through other means, claiming to be from Oath Keepers. If in doubt, email us to verify.
I’d love to see some piece of sh-t leftist terrorist try & get past the Oath Keepers. It’d be a massacre! Hopefully they try something. One less scumbag taking up oxygen!
To the idiot terrorists, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: “Do I feel lucky?”
Share if you think the idiots sending death threats should be arrested & tried for treason!
