‘Your house could be torched, a gun could be used’: Child of Minnesota lesbian couple threatened by neighbor

Published

on

A lesbian couple in St. Peter, Minnesota are badly shaken after receiving an anonymous letter threatening their lives and the life of their daughter, the Mankota Free Press reports.

Along with claiming the women are “mentally ill,” that they “freak out” their friends and are “lowering property values,” the letter’s anonymous author also made specific threats against their safety.

“You never know … your house could be torched, a gun could be used to eliminate you,” the homophobic letter reads.

The women, who chose to remain anonymous, told the Mankota Free Press they believe the letter’s author lives in their neighborhood based on specific threats they made against their daughter.

“She needs to look out behind her back also,” the letter-writer said. “I know where she goes to school!”

Though they considered leaving their home after receiving the letter, the women said they don’t want to give the homophobic letter-writer the satisfaction.

“If someone from the neighborhood is watching and thinking, ‘I scared them out,’” one of the women told the Press, “no, they have not.”

Despite the fear the letter instilled, the couple told the Press that they’ve been inspired by the response from their community.

“I have never, ever in my entire life felt unsafe in St. Peter. This is where I grew up. This is my home,” one of them said. “If anything, [the response] made me more proud to live in St. Peter. Reading and hearing and seeing all the amazing things that people are saying and doing for us.”

Morning Joe’s Mika rains hell on ‘pathetic’ Trump for White House smear campaign against Dr Fauci

Published

MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski went off on an extended diatribe on Donald Trump and the White House for attempts to smear the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci based upon a report from NBC News.

According to the NBC report, "The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings of the U.S. coronavirus response."

Using that as a jumping-off point, the "Morning Joe" host called the president "pathetic," and blamed the massive and resurgent spread of the coronavirus solely on the president's bungling of the government's response from day one.
