The left proves it really does want to round up its enemies and kill them
They’re coming for you next: Twice in the past two days Republican congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) has been swatted, with the police coming to her house armed and ready to fire because they had received a false report saying that a shooting had occurred there and that the situation was dangerous.
Two police officers rushed to Greene’s home in Rome, Ga., in response to a call they received at 2:53 a.m. The call, according to the Rome Police Department, was about “a male possibly shooting his family members and then himself.”
MSN reported that “the suspect, who called through an internet chat that appeared to be a suicide crisis line, falsely told police responders that a man ‘came out as trans-gender and claimed they shot the family’ at Greene’s address, the report said.” The caller gave his name as Wayne Greene and told police on the call: “If anyone tried to stop me from shooting myself, I will shoot them.” He also warned cops that “they would be waiting for us.”
At the house, there was, of course, no Wayne Greene. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene once again met the police officers at the front door, as she did in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They told her about the call and, according to the Rome Police Department, “confirmed this was a second false report.” The report added that the call can’t be traced, “due to the person(s) using a VPN.”
Called swatting, such false reports are expressly designed to harass the victim, and even get them killed should the police over-react and fire at the house out of fear of the non-existent gunman.
That this happened twice in two nights strongly suggests the caller truly wants this murder to happen. The caller even admitted to as much in a later recorded call to the police, in which the caller also admitted the motive was for political reasons. Greene’s political positions were unacceptable, and thus she must be removed:
“After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives. It was a computer generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her.
What is worse however is that it appears the police are making little or no effort to find this person. Their claim above that the call can’t be traced because the caller used a VPN is bogus. As noted here, the police simply have to issue a warrant, which in this case is entirely justified, and the VPN company will have to provide the information. That the police are not doing this strongly suggests they are cool with Greene getting swatted. It is of course fortunate that so far no one in the Rome police force has reacted poorly, and no one has been hurt. Yet.
Greene’s swatting however is not an exception that proves the rule. It is the rule. For the past few years swatting attempts of conservatives, or even left-leaning commentators willing to dissent from the knee-jerk leftist agenda, has increasingly become commonplace. For example:
Tim Pool was what we label ‘confused’ as one point (holding views all over the place) but has gradually moved Right as he was attacked AND as he saw unfair treatment of others (mainly President Trump) as being just that. The left have rewarded him by swatting him at least 8 times in 2022 alone as of April.
And in July, 2022, the home of former Republican candidate for governor in Georgia, Kandiss Taylor, was swatted as well. From her post describing the event on Twitter:
“My children were woken up from their bed” [said Taylor] “Trauma doesn’t even begin to explain what happened at my house. … In my sheriff’s defense they thought they were protecting me. They got a call, a female voice to text, saying they had shot their husband five times and were going to shoot themselves. So they came with all their weapons, rifles pointed at my house, ready to shoot if they needed to kill me if I opened the door. … I don’t care what political party you are, this is evil. This is wrong. This is not OK. And I will find out who swatted my house. And I will do everything in my power to bring them to justice.”
Most swatting incidents in recent years have been done by teenager hackers who do it mostly as a prank, not realizing that it can lead to someone’s death if the police or victim respond badly. These recent events against conservatives suggest that the left is now making it a tactic in their effort to silence any opposition.
Joe Biden himself justified such evil tactics on Thursday when he called the modern Trump-influenced Republican Party and all its supporters “semi-fascists,” thus giving his most radical supporters justification for committing all kinds of violence.
But don’t worry. The Democrats and the left care about you. They would never harm you. You are safe. No need to care if some evil Republican gets shot for no reason. They probably deserve it for getting in the way of the Democratic Party’s righteous agenda.
