Report: Democratic Socialist Threatens Mass Shooting at Trump MAGA Event, Police Investigating

Share

Police are investigating a democratic socialist’s threat to commit a mass shooting at a Make America Great Again event and bring back “bloodstained hats.”

The threat was posted on Tuesday as a reply to The Gateway Pundit author Cassandra Fairbanks’ tweet advertising a pro-Trump event.

The unhinged Twitter user promised to “get numerous bloodstained hats as trophies,” according to the Daily Mail.

The threat was taken very seriously by the police and the staff at the hotel where the event was planned. Thankfully, they kept the event safe.

Metropolitan Police Department vehicles were seen outside the event on Tuesday evening, and the MPD is still investigating the threat made on Twitter. No further details were given by the police at the time, the Daily Mail reported.

Twitter users have done some investigating of their own and found that the potential shooter was a supporter of the Democratic Socialists of America, a far-left political party.

Democratic socialism is also an ideology that has been supported and popularized by the left-wing senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders.

Although some people claim that the picture that accompanied the threat came directly from a pistol grips and carvings website, this is not the first time that a left-wing radical made violent plans.

Do you think this guy would've gone through with his threats if his tweet hadn't been reported?

In June of last year, a gunman shot five people at a baseball field where several congressional Republicans were practicing. One of the men shot was Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, who was hospitalized and underwent multiple surgeries, according to the Chicago Tribune.

It was later uncovered that the man responsible for that shooting worked for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, The Washington Post reported.

Violence from the left could be spurred by the rhetoric of top Democrat politicians.

House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi seemed to be confused why there were no uprisings across the country in response to the Trump administration’s border policy.

“I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be when people realize that this is a policy that they defend,” Pelosi said according to The Washington Times.

Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters has also made similar provocative calls for action.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said.

It’s impossible to tell how much of the left’s extreme rhetoric that the potential shooter had been exposed to, but there is no denying that the radicalism coming from the left cannot lead to anything good.
