Shotgun-brandishing Montana man told immigrant coworker that ‘we kill people like you’: police

Published

A Montana man who regularly brandished a shotgun in front of an immigrant coworker was arrested this week after police say he made a racist death threat.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that 60-year-old Jim Daniels this week was charged with felony malicious intimidation after he told a coworker who immigrated from Brazil that “in Montana, we kill people like you.”

“The victim, who is Brazilian, has worked at Rent For Less in Bozeman for two years and said the racial threats by Daniels started as comments about the color of his skin,” the Bozeman Daily Chronicle writes. “Those comments eventually escalated, and Daniels on several occasions brandished a shotgun and tried to provoke the victim into a fight, authorities said.”

A witness who was in the car with Daniels at the time he made his alleged threat to the coworker confirmed to police that he heard Daniels say something along the lines of “kill him” during the confrontation.

In addition to receiving racist death threats, the immigrant coworker told police that Daniels would regularly show him his shotgun that he named “Betsy” and told him, “someday you’re going to meet Betsy.”

In addition to all this, Daniels’s employer even told police that he encouraged his immigrant employee to file charges against Daniels, whom he described as “a racist [expletive] who needs to be arrested.”

Gallatin County Justice Court Judge Rick West, who is presiding over the case, has set Daniels’s bail at $100,000.

CNBC's Andrew Ross Sorkin and Rick Santelli clashed over coronavirus restrictions, setting off another round of discussion on social media.

The conservative Santelli loudly insisted that bars and restaurants, which are shut down in many areas, were no more dangerous than large retailers, which have mostly been allowed to stay open, and Sorkin cut him off.

“Rick, just as a public-health and public-service announcement for the audience, the difference between a big-box retailer and a restaurant or, frankly, even a church, are so different it’s unbelievable,” Sorkin said, as Santelli kept interrupting. “Going into a big-box retailer, you’re wearing a mask.”

The comments “came unexpectedly” during a Freedom of Information Act hearing about releasing documents from special counsel Robert Mueller's office, according to BuzzFeed reporter Jason Leopold.

Here’s why Republicans who are calling for a Trump dictatorship should not be taken lightly — and aren’t going away

Published

The United States dodged an authoritarian bullet when former Vice President Joe Biden, a centrist Democrat, became president-elect, winning 306 electoral votes and defeating defeated President Donald Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote. But when Republican Lin Wood, a pro-Trump attorney who has been fighting the election results in Georgia, implores Trump to impose martial law and elections officials are receiving death threats for acknowledging Biden as president-elect, it is painfully obvious that there is a strong appetite for fascism in parts of the United States. And journalist Sasha Abramsky, in an article published by The Nation on December 4, warns that Republicans who are openly calling for fascism should not be taken lightly.
