“You’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die”
A member of the electoral college in Michigan is being bombarded with death threats from anti-Trump protesters, one of whom vowed to “put a bullet” in his brain if he didn’t change his vote in favor of Hillary Clinton.
Anti-Trump agitators have been emailing electors in red states for over a week in an effort to convince or intimidate them into breaking the law and overturning the outcome of the election.
22-year-old Michael Banerian, one of Michigan’s 16 Electoral College voters, told the Detroit News that he has received a deluge of hateful messages from leftists, including numerous death threats.
“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,” said Banerian, adding that he has been labeled a “hateful bigot” by the same people who are violently threatening him.
The Detroit News verified that in one of the emails, a Hillary supporter vowed to “put a bullet” in his mouth, while Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson said that other electors “are also receiving threats”.
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.
As we have documented, despite the media narrative that there is a wave of hateful anti-Muslim and anti-Mexican sentiment sweeping the country, there have been countless examples of Trump supporters being attacked and abused over the last week.
