Presumed Left-Wing California Man Arrested for Threatening to Kill Children of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, Over Net Neutrality

Another avid Rachel Maddow watcher, I presume.

A 33-year-old California man who told the FBI he was upset about the repeal of net neutrality regulations has been arrested on charges of threatening to kill the family of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.

According to court documents cited by the Justice Department, 33-year-old Markara Man of Norwalk, Calif., allegedly sent three emails to Pai in December 2017. The first email accused the FCC chairman of being responsible for a child who allegedly committed suicide over net neutrality repeal. The next email listed three locations near Washington, D.C., and threatened to kill Pai's family members. And the third email, the DOJ says, simply showed an impact of Pai and a framed photo of him with his family.

When the FBI traced the emails and confronted him in May 2018, Man admitted he made the threats because he was "angry" about net neutrality repeal and wanted to "scare" the FCC chairman, the DOJ said.

Man has been charged with threatening to murder a U.S. official's immediate family member with the intent to intimidate or interfere with the official's official duties. If he is convicted, the California man faces up to 10 years behind bars. The case against Man is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander P. Berrang.

Meanwhile, the media keeps portraying Trump voters as Nazis and calling for Democrats to "play by street rules" to intimidate Republicans -- with #FakeRepublican Niccole Wallace not even batting an eye at this call for violence -- and declaring, quote, "This is going to get more extreme. And it should."

And then just later that week (or even that very day), claiming that Republicans and/or Trump are "attacking the media" and inciting violence.

Is anyone in the media going to call out Niccole Wallace for hosting someone who called, explicitly, for "street rules" to intimidate/threaten Republicans?

Or do leftists believe that they should have a natural right to a Monopoly on Violence?

I don't want any violence on either side.

But I'm all done hopping-to when the left demands I denounce this or that, while the leftists and their media PR agents actively solicit violence while nigh-simultaneously whining that they feel "threatened" by Trump's twitter account.

The rules of engagement you choose for your enemies are also the rules of engagement you choose for yourselves.

If you want more civility and less inciting rhetoric, start offering the same.
