Capital Gazette received death threats, emails celebrating shooting after attack

There’s really nothing shocking anymore.

For example, I was horrified at the slaughter of first grade children at Sandy hook.

Those parents received death threats. A nut job promoted a story that this was fake, and the families and children were actors.

I’ve got a neighbor, with a pickup truck and an “info wars” bumper sticker on the back.

Hey, but did you hear that Sarah Sanders couldn’t eat in a particular restaurant? Why can’t liberals be civil?


#4

who is making death threats against the
newspaper and why?


#5

Probably followers of Trump who see the “media as the enemy of the American people”.


#6

why would followers of Trump make death threats after 5 people killed?


#7

Boy, that’s a good question. Maybe because they are mentally ill?


#8

what makes you say they are mentally ill?
you don’t know who is making death threats.


#9

You really think that people who make death threats after 5 people have been murdered are mentally stable?


#10

well, i don’t think Maxine Waters is stable and her call for confronting people, but i can’t understand why there would be death threats after the shooting if there were no death threats before.


#11

So, you agree that anyone making threats, they probably are mentally ill. And it’s clear that the people at the Capital Gazette and blaming Trump, so I believe they think that the threats are coming from mentally ill Trump supporters.


#12

i don’t see any connection at all between what happened and Trump supporters.


#13

The people at the Citizen Gazette do.


#14

The people who received the threats.

And a new twist for the “enemies of the American people”:


#15

#16

Civil like shooting republicans on a baseball field or threating to kill the FCC chairman because they did not agree that “net nutrality” should be going away or threating to kill a republican senator and chop up him and his family with an ax?


#17

This is something I don’t get. Why not? Why deny this request?


#18

#19

That’s good.


#20

For all we know, the fellow that shot the Republican on the baseball field did that because he thought he was exercising his 2nd Amendment rights against a tyrannical government. Of course, we know that’s wrong, but I suppose the non-stop rhetoric of gunowners may have influenced him.
