More liberal terrorism: Attorney representing Covington Catholic teens gets bomb threat — Report

While appearing on Fox and Friends, Robert Barnes, the attorney representing a number of families with children attending Covington Catholic High School, said that “false statements” made about the students needs to be retracted and corrected within 48 hours or the subjects who targeted the students will face lawsuits.

After making the announcement, Barnes reportedly received an email that included a bomb threat.  According to Cassandra Fairbanks, the email read, “I am coming to bomb your office. Get ready. 48 hours. Be ready.”

Barnes also said the threat “shows how dangerous the establishment press can be when it excites madness with libelous lies.”

He also made it clear that “if the goal was to deter me in helping these families, it had the opposite effect.”

A post at the American Thinker notes:

Trump Derangement Syndrome, which is the underlying reason why the explosion of hate for the Catholic Church has become so public (in anticipation of the appointment of Amy Coney Barrett to the next SCOTUS vacancy), is literally “derangement” – meaning that ordinary internal mental cautions that prevent people from crossing important lines are discarded in a frenzy.

If one or more people from outside Kentucky is indicted and brought to the state for prosecution under a terroristic threat statute, it would sober up a lot of others.  Depending on the nature of the specific threat, the best defense strategy might be to plead mental incapacity due to TDS.  That would lead to all sorts of expert testimony as to whether or not TDS is a legitimate psychiatric affliction.  Best of all, it would be the Trump-hating defendant who would be making the case that TDS is a mental affliction.

The other avenue for legal redress is libel suits.  Robert Barnes, who reads, tweets about, and occasionally writes for these pages, has stepped up with an offer of free legal representation for libel lawsuits on behalf of the children and already apparently is representing some of them.  He has been warning prominent people – such as Rep. Ilhan Omar and New York Times writer Maggie Haberman – to repudiate and apologize for their libels or face a lawsuit.

As I’ve repeatedly said since February 2011, liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of bloodthirsty rage and hate.  As we and others have reported, the children have been targeted with death threats, threats of violence and calls to murder them after libelous reports from the so-called “mainstream media.”

What’s next?  The mind boggles.
