Florida man threatens to murder children of GOP Rep over Trump immigration policies

On Tuesday, Florida resident Laurence Key was arrested for allegedly threatening to murder the children of Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., over President Trump’s immigration policies, the TC Palm reported.

“I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them,” he told an intern who took the call. “If you are going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids.  Don’t try to find me because you won’t.”

The TC Palm added:

Key is charged with communication of a threat to kidnap or injure a person in regard to Mast’s children, a girl and two boys younger than 8.

Key previously has called Mast’s office 478 times, the complaint says, and also contacted the offices of Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson Monday.

Key told an FBI investigator and Martin County sheriff’s deputy he never threatened to kill Mast’s children, but admitted he said “Mast should be separated from his kids” if he supported the Trump administration policy, the federal complaint says.

Key is scheduled to be arraigned on July 2.

While Key is responsible for his own actions, Trump-haters across the board, including members of the so-called mainstream media, Hollywood leftists like Peter Fonda, lawmakers like Nancy Pelosi and other notable figures like former First Lady Laura Bush and former CIA Director Michael Hayden are largely responsible for creating the current climate of hate.

Facts apparently don’t matter, like the inconvenient truth that Obama himself justified family separation.

Rush Limbaugh noted: “If the media keeps this up — if they keep up generating this hysteria — somebody’s gonna get killed. I think we’re pretty close to somebody getting killed already, and I’m not being hyperbolic, and I’m not trying to call attention to myself.”

“I’m genuinely worried about the out-of-control aspect of this. The news media’s fanning the flames. The news media is leading the way on this,” he added.

It’s enough to make one think leftists really want a second bloody civil war over Trump…
