Florida man arrested for threatening to kill Trump voters and 7 GOP leaders


CLEARWATER, FL – Trump derangement syndrome, the pseudo fake condition used to describe those people that hate President Trump, and everything he stands for in politics. 

Although many people joke about it, there are some that almost prove that it is a real disease, as evidenced recently by a man in Florida.  This man threatened to kill those who supported President Trump and seven other Republican leaders.

This man, Richard Szala, a registered democrat from Clearwater, Florida, was recently arrested for threats to kill several Republican leaders.  Those that he wanted to kill, Governor Ron DeSantis, Senators Mitch McConnel, Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, and State Representative Matt Gatez.  Why did Szala want to kill these people?  Presumably because they are vocal of their support for the President.

A neighbor of Szala, John Clayton, said that he wanted to kill President Trump as well.  And that is one reason that he and his family were afraid of putting signs in their front yard in support of the President’s reelection bid.  He said:

“We were going to plant signs and what have you, but I thought, you know what, in this environment, maybe not a good idea…and now, oh my God.”

Clayton alluded to WFLA-TV that he was glad he did not put the signs up because of Szala and his actions.  He claimed that he did not ahead of time of Szala’s intentions of killing Republicans.  He said:

“No clue.  Cause you have no idea who your neighbors are.”

Clearwater Police Department said that they began investigating Szala after threats came in on Facebook against the Republican leaders.  They also said that they became aware of the threats against the President after they were witnessed by President Trump supporters on YouTube.

Clearwater Police Lieutenant Michael Walek told Newsweek:

“We got a credible tip from an information intelligence gather source about him [Szala] posting threatening comments on YouTube.  His comments were directed to the Republican party, specific to people in the Republican party…He was threatening to shoot them.

“He admitted to making the statements out of anger and just shouldn’t have said it, didn’t mean it, but he still said it.  If you make a threat and were able to establish probable cause you’re going to jail.”

Police advised that the had responded to Szala’s residence and interviewed him after the complaints about his behavior were made.  When doing so, they also alerted federal and state authorities of the investigation to ensure that those that were threatened by him were safe guarded.

When they made contact with Szala, they allegedly took possession of a computer, phone and a gun that belonged to him.  Walek also said:

“We had other agencies involved, it was FDLE, the FBI and also the Secret Service were out there participating based upon the threats that were made.”

Thankfully, law enforcement was notified of this incident and was able to take quick action before something violent occurred. 

However, as an interesting note, how many cases are there, throughout the United States, in which a right-wing Republican has taken up arms against the democrats and their supporters?

Better question, how many instances are there of civil unrest for cases in which Republicans and their supporters think that they were wronged, in that last 60 years?  LET is hard pressed to believe that there has been even one true instance, in which a true Republican or conservative person or group has resorted to violence because they believed the system wronged them.

Remember all of the protests and riots when former President Barack Obama was elected, not once, but twice?  No, because they did not happen.  Remember the protests and riots when former President Bill Clinton took office twice?  No, they did not happen.

Remember when there were violent protests in the streets when the officers in Houston were violently ambushed and killed merely because they were officers, protecting Black Lives Matter protesters?  No, because they did not happen.

National Guard activated in Portland due to ‘early and severe rioting’: ‘F-Trump, f-Biden, death to America’

November 5, 2020

PORTLAND, OR – The domestic terrorism started early on Wednesday evening in Portland, just after 7pm.

The early start was promised in a planned “rally” for a “week of action,” set to last from Wednesday, November 4, through Wednesday, November 11.

Law Enforcement Today told you Tuesday that Oregon Governor Kate Brown ordered the Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County Sheriff in charge of efforts to quell the violence in the city, and also put the National Guard on standby.

Around 7pm Wednesday, the National Guard was activated and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) tweeted to alert rioters that the Guard members would be riding with police and assisting in efforts to end what was declared to be a riot.

Police and Guard members began moving in swiftly.

MCSO attempted to soften the rioters by telling them that these guard members were “civilian community members helping to protect us.”

They must have forgotten that terrorists don’t care who is in their path to destruction, chaos, violence, and anarchy.

Before the gathering was declared a riot, a group called Symbiosis PDX handed out propaganda. Symbiosis PDX, according to their Twitter profile, stands for the following:

“Abolish All Mayors, ACAB, Solidarity Economy, Land Back, All Power to the Neigborhood Action Collectives, Fuck the Feds. Build Global Revolution. We will win.”

Their propaganda pamphlets included titles such as “Abolish all Mayors,” “Sex and Work,” “Anarchism in the Middle East,” and “A World Without Police.”

Groups like Symbiosis PDX want democracy and capitalism and we as Americans know it to be abolished.

Interestingly, a large presence in Portland was still made with people demanding every vote be counted.

This, after their self identified Antifa member candidate for Portland mayor, Sarah Iannarone, lost the election to incumbent Ted Wheeler.

One video was captured by a Twitter user who goes by the name Stoodis Mayne, who has a violent agenda in place already towards what is assumed to be Trump supporters and police that he describes as “fascists.”

His video showed the National Guard geared up in the riotous area of Portland Wednesday night. In this video, he said:

“You gonna fucking wage war on your own fucking people?”

The same user spread more false propaganda, on his page, saying the National Guard was called in over “broken windows.”

Another user claimed the night was “relatively calm and small night for Portland.”

In addition to the “broken windows,” which, as a reminder, represent people’s livelihoods, many of whom are of the ethnicity the group claims to care so much about, more American flags were also burned in the streets. Freeways and bridges were blocked, disrupting traffic.

Many people on Twitter expressed their outrage over the targeting of the clothing store Wildfang, which is apparently a “gender-smashing” brand.

Projectiles were thrown at police, including glass bottles, and a source told Law Enforcement Today that at least one Molotov cocktail had been thrown at police at the onset of the declaration of a riot.

Portland Fire was also on scene.

Rioters yelled:

“Fuck Biden and Trump!”

This supports the narrative that the anarchists aren’t rioting against any candidate, nor for either of them, but they are in the streets of Portland, and other big cities around the nation, to destroy the country.

They aren’t hiding it. And yet politicians have tied the hands of police and allowed it to continue for nearly six months.

In case anyone was under the impression that as soon as the election was “over,” the chaos would stop, the terrorists brought a special sign to let everyone know that’s not nearly their plan.

The sign read:

“The vote is over the fight goes on.”

As of 8:30pm local time, it was reported that nine arrests had been made.

Here’s an example of one of those arrests, caught on video, where police were attempting to clear the streets and one rioter just wasn’t interested in moving along. 

This is a developing story as the crowd remained in the streets against the declaration of an unlawful assembly as of 9pm Wednesday. Follow LET for more updates and coverage
