Donald Trump’s hit-squad spews death threats at Colorado GOP chair and Indiana delegates

Published

If you think Donald Trump’s campaign rallies are violent what’s happening online is spiraling out of control too. Trump supporters have turned their rage to the chair of the Colorado Republican Party as well as Republican delegates in Indiana.

Colorado GOP Chair Steve House posted on his Facebook page that he has received over 3,000 calls to his home, some of which were death threats. Trump supporters evidently blame House, not Colorado law, for running a caucus instead of a primary and have posted House’s personal information online. Trump has had more success in primary states, so the fans are turning their anger to party officials.

COLORADO-GOPCHAIR

In Indiana, Republican delegates are incurring the wrath of Trump supporters after some of them expressed reservations about Trump, according to the IndyStar. Delegates received threatening emails warning that they are being watched and implied they could be targeted. Some of the Trump supporters even sent intimidating notes to the families of the delegates as well.

“You sorry (expletive)!” GOP delegate Craig Dunn said he got via email. “I hope the worst for you and yours!”

“Little did I know that in expressing your 1st Amendment rights, that they’d come after you so hard,” he said. “It’s very disappointing. I probably received 25 to 30 hate emails, phone calls and voice mails, posts on Facebook that I deleted. Now they’re hunting down friends of mine and posting that kind of stuff on their Facebook pages.”

After criticizing Trump in a Politico article over the weekend, Trump’s attackers struck Dunn as well as others quoted hard.

“Wrong side Kyle,” said one email to delegate Kyle Babcock. “Hope the families well. Your name and info was sent to me on a list that is going public. Think before you take a step down the wrong path, the American people want to have faith in your  but it looks like a future in hiding is more appealing.”

The same person who wrote to Kyle also attacked Tom John, chairman of Indiana’s 7th Congressional District. “You know traditional burial is polluting the planet. Tom hope the family is well,” the email said. “Your name and info has been given to me on a list that is about to go public. Good luck becoming a delegate, we are watching you.”

As of posting this story Twitter has not removed any of the doxed information.

UPDATE: Indiana state police say they are reviewing the threats, IndyStar reports.

“What I can share with you at this time is information has been referred to the Indiana State Police that alleges threatening emails have been sent to some Indiana delegates that will be participating in the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio,” Capt. David Bursten, a state police spokesman, told the Star. “Presently the Indiana State Police is reviewing the information to determine if it may cross the line of free speech and could be considered criminal in nature.”

‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
