Exhibit A of why Donald Trump deserves to lose the 2020 election has struck again.
“Charlottesville, VIRGINIA – United States Attorney Thomas T. Cullen and Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Justice Department’s Civil Right Division announced today the arrest of a Florida man on federal charges that in January 2019 he made racially-motivated threats against a prospective candidate that interfered with a local election for City Council in Charlottesville, Virginia.
A federal grand jury in the Western District of Virginia returned a sealed indictment.pdf on September 11, 2019 charging Daniel McMahon, 31, of Brandon, Fla., with four counts: willful interference with a candidate for elective office, bias-motivated interference with a candidate for elective office, threats to injure in interstate commerce, and cyberstalking. The indictment was unsealed today following McMahon’s arrest.
“As alleged in the indictment, this defendant was motivated by racial animus and used his social-media accounts to threaten and intimidate a potential candidate for elective office,” U.S. Attorney Thomas T. Cullen stated today. “Although the First Amendment protects an individual’s right to broadcast hateful views online, it does not give license to threats of violence or bodily harm. We will continue to prioritize cyber-threat cases, including those giving rise to civil rights violations.”
The Washington Post ran a big puff piece on Thomas Cullen last month called “The Trump Appointee Who Is Putting White Supremacists In Jail.” Thomas Cullen is the US Attorney who indicted the Rise Above Movement for defending themselves from an Antifa mob in Charlottesville.
For those who are unfamiliar with Daniel McMahon aka “Jack Corbin,” he is well known as one of Antifa’s biggest enemies online. He has a reputation for doxing and unmasking them in retaliation for their doxing and unmasking of people on the Right. Just as was the case with the Rise Above Movement, Thomas Cullen is selectively prosecuting White Nationalists. He has also pointedly ignored the corrupt Charlottesville government which was responsible for the violence at the Unite the Right rally.
A year from now, we will be given the chance to make our opinion known on the Trump presidency. I’ve already made up my mind. There is no way in hell that I am voting to reelect Donald Trump and the farce that the Justice Department has become under his leadership – releasing hardened criminals from prison, turning a blind eye to chronic Antifa violence, prosecuting only White Nationalists to virtue signal about “racism” – is one of the top five reasons he should be left to crash and burn.
