A well-known Seattle city councilwoman has been on the receiving end of vicious threats and racist comments after encouraging protesters to shut down President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, reports Q13 Fox.

According to a spokeswoman for Kshama Sawant — one of the few socialist office holders in the U.S. — the councilwoman has been flooded with angry emails and phone calls for encouraging continuing protests against Trump.

Speaking on Election Day, Sawant called on the public to “tell America we do not accept a racist agenda and let’s make sure of that on Inauguration Day.”

After a video of Sawant’s speech went viral, she was deluged with over 200 phone calls to her Seattle office.

“A staffer was told on phone: ‘I will come and tattoo a swastika on your head and on that b*tch’s head,’” Council spokesperson Dana Robinson Slote stated in an email.

“Go back to India b*tch,” one email read. “I am tired of being shamed because I’m a white male. You automatically think I’m a racist. How about you go the f*ck back to India or wherever you came from?”

Another emailer complained that conservatives didn’t riot when Barack Obama was elected, before adding, “Stop being such a cry baby bitch and go hang yourself.”

So-called moderate Georgia senator brags she’s as conservative as a pagan barbarian who killed his own brother to rule

Published

on

Sen. Kelly Loeffler's (R-GA) new campaign ad brags that she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," with an actor grunting off a "list" of things he would do.

It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.

Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."
