John Bolton ally suggests ‘leftists’ sent mail bombs to ‘deflect attention from the left’s mobs’

Published

An anti-Islam neoconservative conspiracy theorist closely linked to National Security Adviser John Bolton on Wednesday suggested that liberals had sent bombs to themselves to “deflect attention” away from so-called “mobs.”

In a tweet on Wednesday, Frank Gaffney reacted to the news that potentially explosive devices had been sent to the home of two former Democratic presidents, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. A potential mail bomb had also targeted the home of liberal billionaire George Soros.

Gaffney, a far-right foreign policy hawk who worked for President Ronald Reagan and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), argued that “leftists” may be responsible for the suspected bombs as a ruse to distract from what President Donald Trump has called liberal “mobs.”

“None of the leftists ostensibly targeted for pipe-bombs were actually at serious risk, since security details would be screening their mail,” Gaffney wrote. “So let’s determine not only who is responsible for these bombs, but whether they were trying to deflect attention from the Left’s mobs.”

Other Trump supporters have posited that Soros targeted himself to draw scrutiny away from a caravan of migrants fleeing violence in Central America. The conspiracy theorists believe that Soros is also responsible for financing the caravan.

Like the assertions made by Gaffney, there is no evidence to back up the claims against Soros.

The skit featured a house in San Francisco, California, a second in Charleston, South Carolina and a third in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each dinner table debated impeachment, and the differences between President Donald Trump and his predecessor, President Barack Obama.

But then the snowman said that none of their votes matter.

"They'll debate the issues all year long, but then it all comes down to 1,000 people in Wisconsin who won't even think about the election until the morning of," the snowman said. "And that's the magic of the Electoral College."
