Trump Supporter In Trouble Over Suggestion On How To Deal With Protesters

Both the Left and the Right can lay claim to folks that take the rhetoric way too far and wind up expressing views that are downright repulsive. As Raw Story shares, our latest example comes courtesy of a conservative gun nut from West Virginia.

Dana Capron is a gun-loving supporter of President Donald Trump from West Virginia. In anticipation of an upcoming Trump rally in Huntington, he posted some terrifying thoughts on social media.

“Calling all armed conservatives, if we go then we go armed. Not for the rally but for the protesters. Let’s give the protesters what they want … Bring everything you have or can bring,” he wrote. “We start with anyone blocking the streets then we clear the protesters once and for all, by any means necessary. Let’s show them that this is not Commiefornia and we deal with protesters faster.”

That posting captured the attention of Downtown Huntington, and a notification was quickly shared in response.

“BE ADVISED: There is a man threatening to kill protesters at @POTUS' rally next week in #HuntingtonWV & calling for others to join him…,” the post read.

That led to a bit of a firestorm, and Capron’s social media accounts were deactivated in response. However, his inflammatory words were enough to capture the attention of local and federal authorities. Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Secret Service are said to be looking into it.

Assuming Capron’s social media history will be part of the investigation, the authorities will have a slew of things to parse over. Capron claims to have ties to the III% militia movement, and he’s posted a ton of things that are way out of line.

“If Michael Moore wants to rise up, then let us take our arms and rise against him. His death will be sweet. Kill them all #zerosympathy,” read one post.

“Liberal’s don’t own guns, they are all in the d**do movement. I could care less about liberals and their agenda. Shut the f**k up and start shooting if you all have the balls. Again i’m sick and tired of hearing s**t from the left,” he posted on one website.

“Oh and if the militia were to be there and and anything were to get started, they would handle it very swiftly and there would be a lot of so called innocent liberals face down dead in the streets and that would be a welcome sight to me,” he added.

Based on the fact that he’s blatantly posted a number of threats in public forums, we would expect the authorities to deal with Capron swiftly. There’s nothing passionate behind his hateful words, but rather clear signs that a political observer is becoming unhinged from reality. Opposition to an opposing viewpoint is perfectly fine, and it’s even laudable when it can be pulled off with class. Calling for the death of others that don’t see things your way is never acceptable under any circumstances.
