To be clear, I'm not a fan of Infowars, or much of anything Alex Jones does, even when I agree with him. I think he's an obnoxious jerk. But this is a clear example of how everything on the left works. There are no boundaries on the left, or for the left.
The questions I have are:
The questions I have are:
- Why isn't anyone being arrested for this behavior?
- Why would an owner of a restaurant allow anyone to get away with this in their establishment?
- Why weren't the police called?
Being in violation of twitter rules should be the least of these leftist misfit's worries. It is illegal for anyone to do this to anyone, but to harass a sitting United States Senator, or even unelected federal public officials, is a federal crime.
Threatening government officials of the United States is a felony under federal law. Threatening the President of the United States is a felony under 18 U.S.C. § 871, punishable by up to 5 years of imprisonment, that is investigated by the United States Secret Service. Threatening other officials is a Class C or D felony, usually carrying maximum penalties of 5 or 10 years under 18 U.S.C. § 875, 18 U.S.C. § 876 and other statutes, that is investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
When a threat is made against a judge, it can be considered obstruction of justice. Threatening federal officials' family members is also a federal crime; in enacting the law, the Committee on the Judiciary stated that "Clearly it is a proper Federal function to respond to terrorists and other criminals who seek to influence the making of Federal policies and interfere with the administration of justice by attacking close relatives of those entrusted with these tasks."
There are three elements of the offense of making an illegal threat: (i) there must be a transmission in interstate commerce; (ii) there must be a communication containing the threat; (iii) and the threat must be a threat to injure the person of another. Threats can also sometimes be punished under the statutes criminalizing assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain United States Government officers or employees or assassinating, kidnapping, and assaulting government officials of the United States.
United States Sentencing Guidelines take a number of factors into consideration in determining the recommended penalty, including evidence of the person's intent to carry out the threat; disruption to the government function; and the possibility of inciting others to violence. There is also a 6-level official victim enhancement, which makes the recommended penalty, per the sentencing table, approximately double that which would apply if an ordinary citizen were the victim. There can be many motives for making threats, including political motives or a desire to frame someone else for making the threat. The person's intent can greatly affect the sentence.
In determining what constitutes a true threat, the courts hold that what must be proved is that a reasonable recipient of the communication would consider it a threat under the circumstances. Thus, a statement to a judge that "You and your family are going to die" would be regarded as a true threat, even if the defendant claimed that he meant it as a literal, biological truth. If a threat is made to multiple individuals, it may be considered to be outside of the guidelines heartland, and therefore to warrant an enhancement.
It would appear to me this meets the definition of a criminal threat, and these criminal misfits need to be arrested and put in jail. Furthermore they should be sued in civil courts, including that misfit who owned the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia who kicked Sarah Sanders out because she didn't like Sander's politics.
That was probably a violation of some federal law against discrimination, and the owner should have been sued for it, as so many on the left has done in other cases. But then comes the blatantly illegal activity of this leftist hypocrite.
After the Sander's party politely left they went across the street to another restaurant, but Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen couldn't leave it alone. She then proceeded to yell at them when they tried to go to a different restaurant and actually "followed them across the street, called people, and organized a protest yelling and screaming at them from outside the other restaurant and creating this scene”.
Kicking her family out of her restaurant was bad enough, but harassing them further was illegal.
Stephanie Wilkinson needs to be sued, and at some point Maxine Waters needs to be prosecuted for promoting this illegal activity.
She's encouraged the "recent protests against President Trump as seen in several Washington, DC and Virginia area restaurants, saying that she has "no sympathy" for those who serve in the administration and that the public should "turn on them" and "absolutely harass" White House officials while they are doing normal every day activities."
That's an admonition to her misfit followers to commit an illegal act. She needs to be arrested, prosecuted and she needs to be sued by those who suffer for her involvement. She also needs to be sanctioned by the Congress right now!
But, that takes Congressional leadership with a spine stiffer than Jell-o.
