Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with many.

Good point.  As we’ve reported several times, Twitter seems to target conservatives for practically nothing while allowing death threats from leftists.

One person asked:

That’s easy — liberalism, as we’ve said time and again, is an ideology of insane bloodthirsty rage and hate.  Leftists like Pearce prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.

So who is Ben Pearce?  According to this website:

To many, Ben Pearce’s name is synonymous with ‘What I Might Do’, his oddly anthemic deep-house debut that dominated club floors across the world in 2012. Whilst this is an easy correlation to make (the track went platinum in Europe, reached #7 in the UK charts and was the most Shazamed tracked of 2013 in the UK), those who have followed him since the beginning can testify that he is so much more than that.

Ben is very much an underground DJ first-and-foremost, aided in no small part by his vast musical knowledge and the ability to play across a wide range of musical genres. His skills behind the decks have not gone un-noticed, as shown by high-profile sets alongside the likes of Simian Mobile Disco, Tensnake and Claptone.

On the rise, Ben was named DJ Mag’s Best Breakthrough Producer in 2013 and in the following year further proved that he’s deserving of the coveted award. Becoming increasingly known for his remixing abilities as well as his own original productions, remixing for Le Youth, Kwabs and Tender Games all in 2014. He collaborated with Black Orange Juice ‘Predictable’ for MTA, a soulfully smooth single that equally showcases lyrical flair and production talent, as well as release the underground club infused ‘Lego’ EP on his own label.

And it looks like we can add “potential presidential assassin” to that bio…
