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

Published

on

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.”

Here is how the 99% can force the 1% to defeat COVID-19

Published

By

The government's response to the pandemic has further enriched the wealthy, while everyday people, especially Black and Brown workers, face sickness, death, and destitution. Government handouts to the rich are unsurprising, since they repeat the century-old pattern of "rescue packages", but another pattern is more perplexing: why have business leaders not stepped up to demand a robust public health response, which would ultimately be in their own self-interest? The titans of industry have mostly stood by in the face of Trump's criminal negligence, which has devastated much of the 99% but also endangers the wealthy.
