It seems that liberals across the country have decided the law doesn’t apply to them and are now threatening members of the Electoral College in an attempted coup d’etat inended to install Democrat Hillary Clinton as president.  On Thursday, the Detroit News reported that electors in Michigan are now receiving death threats from pro-Hillary liberals.

One elector received an email from a deranged Hillary supporter who threatened to put a bullet in his mouth.

According to the Detroit News:

Michael Banerian wants to show that young adults still have faith in the political system, but he said his selection as one of Michigan’s 16 Electoral College voters has prompted emails urging him to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton and even threatening death.

On Dec. 19, the 22-year-old Banerian is scheduled to join 15 other Michiganians to cast their electoral votes for Republican President-elect Donald Trump. But Trump’s opponents have deluged Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton, according to the Michigan Republican Party.

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”

The Detroit News verified one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the person told Banerian he would “put a bullet” in his mouth. Banerian said he deleted the rest of the emails and messages “because as you can imagine they’re clogging up my email.”

Here’s a video report, courtesy of WXYZ:

But Benerian, a political science senior at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party, says he won’t be deterred by the threats.

“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” he said. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”

Banerian hasn’t reported the threats yet, but is considering doing so.

“That’s absolutely wrong, and anybody who sends a threat like that frankly should be prosecuted,” said Michigan Democratic Party Chairman Brandon Dillon.

Paul Joseph Watson added:

Infowars has also received reports that electors in Ohio are receiving similar violent threats.

Over 4 million people have also signed an online petition demanding that the nation’s electors vote for Clinton instead of Trump.

Meanwhile, paid protesters are planning to prevent a “peaceful transition” by staging riots and other violence on January 20th, the day of Trump’s inauguration.

Let’s get this right.  Liberals claim that Trump and his supporters are violent, and to make the point, they’re threatening to murder members of the Electoral College if theydon’t vote for Hillary.

It’s all enough to make one think liberals really do want a second, bloody civil war over Trump’s electoral victory…
