Last week, Democrat US Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraged a group of her followers in Los Angeles to keep the pressure on President Trump and members of his administration:
“History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him.”
“And so, let’s stay the course…Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,”
“Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!”
Today, the Daily Caller is reporting that Federal authorities have reportedly arrested a man who threatened Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai and his children.
Mr. Pai is a member of President Trump’s cabinet. Coincidence?
Scott MacFarlane, an investigative reporter for NBC 4, tweeted on Friday that a man was arrested after sending an email to Pai threatening to find and kill his children. The email included the addresses of preschools in Arlington, Virginia, where Pai lives.
According to a Department of Justice press release, the man was “angry” that Pai repealed net neutrality and wanted to “scare” him. One email from the 33-year-old California man included a framed photograph of Pai’s family.
“The first email accused Chairman Pai of being responsible for a child who allegedly had committed suicide because of the repeal of net neutrality regulations,” the release said. “The second email listed three locations in or around Arlington, and threatened to kill the Chairman’s family members. The third email had no message in its body, but included an image depicting Chairman Pai and, in the foreground and slightly out of focus, a framed photograph of Chairman Pai and his family.”
Protesters showed up at Pai’s home in November after the FCC chairman rejected net neutrality. Some protesters had signs with his children’s names on them insisting that their father is a “murderer.”
In November 2017, Tech/Cybersecurity reporter at National Journal tweeted images of signs addressing Mr. Pai’s children during a protest against him that was held “Maxine Waters style” in front of the Pai family home.
I have a friend that lives near @AjitPaiFCC. Net neutrality "activists" posted these signs, featuring his children's names, outside his house. Pizzas also reportedly sent to his house every half-hour last night. pic.twitter.com/jWI4gV6Hvc
