‘I’ll Put a Bullet in Her F***ing Skull’: Trump Supporter Threatens to Murder lhan Omar

    A man from the upper-western half of New York State threatened to kill Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) over a false belief that she was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The man was identified based on information he supplied to Omar’s congressional staffers.

    According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of New York, 55-year-old Patrick W. Carlineo, Jr. was arrested and charged with threatening to assault and murder a U.S. official.

    On March 21, just before 12:30 p.m., Carlineo allegedly phoned Omar’s Washington, D.C. office and spoke with one of her staff members.

    Per the Department of Justice (DOJ), Carlineo said:

    Do you work for the Muslim Brotherhood? Why are you working for her, she’s a fucking terrorist. I’ll put a bullet in her fucking skull.

    After the phone call, Omar’s staff contacted the U.S. Capitol Police, Threat Assessment Section, who coordinated their investigation with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent-in-Charge Gary Loeffert. The Capitol Police’s portion of the inquiry was overseen by Chief Matthew R. Verderosa.

    According to the criminal complaint, Carlineo knew what was happening when federal agents came knocking on March 29.

    “Carlineo stated that he knew why the FBI wanted to speak to him,” the complaint alleges. “Initially, he stated that it was because he said ‘if our forefathers were still alive, they’d put a bullet in her head.’ He further stated that he was referring to a telephone call that he made to Congresswoman Omar’s office.”

    The filing also describes Carlineo’s conservative political outlook.

    “Carlineo stated that he was a patriot, that he loves the president, and that he hates radical Muslims in our government,” per the FBI.

    Carlineo was then shown an e-mailed transcript of his phone call to Omar’s office containing what authorities allege was his actual quote. The defendant stood by his story that he referenced America’s forefathers and “repeated his original version of events,” the complaint notes. “Carlineo stated that Congresswoman Omar supported Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and that her election to Congress was illegitimate.”

    After that, FBI Special Agent Christina Peklak-Scott told Carlineo that lying to the FBI was a separate crime and advised him that they had a recording of the phone call in their possession. Peklak-Scott then asked Carlineo “what investigators would hear when [they] listened to the recording.” At that point, Carlineo’s story allegedly shifted again and he said couldn’t remember exactly what he said.

    FBI agents then asked Carlineo if he had any guns in his house.

    “He stated that there are a shotgun and a .22 caliber firearm in the house,” the complaint notes. “He initially stated that the weapons belonged to his girlfriend, but later in the interview stated that the guns belonged to him.”

    Carlineo was eventually arrested; authorities did not specify when.

    Codified at 18 U.S.C. §115(a)(1)(B), the federal statute on point here reads, in relevant part:

    Whoever…threatens to assault, kidnap, or murder, a United States official, a United States judge, a Federal law enforcement officer, or an official whose killing would be a crime, with intent to impede, intimidate, or interfere with such official, judge, or law enforcement officer while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with intent to retaliate against such official, judge, or law enforcement officer on account of the performance of official duties, shall be punished.

    Carlineo faces a $250,000 fine and a maximum of 10 years in prison.

  2. Ooohhhh so crazy!

    Could you imagine if he took pictures holding a bloody severed head of Omar (like Kathy Griffin).
    Or if he was wearing a t-shirt with Trump blowing his brains out with a revolver (Whoopi).
    Or if he walked on a stage and said “Fuck Omar” (DeNiro)
    Or if he threatened to blow up Omar’s house (Madonna)

    Fucking hypocrites

    Regardless of what side you are on, this kind of shit is not acceptable, but what makes me laugh is the fact that trump supporters are getting assaulted on a regular basis......

    Imagine how badly the media would lose their shit if people working for Obama were getting assaulted with the same kind of regularity. This is something that should be alarming to anyone with half a brain

    The left seems to think that violence is an acceptable way to fight their cause

    So people are getting their hats smacked off their head. Are they getting ran over, getting bombs mailed to them, getting shot up while praying?

    Please point to all the incidents of Obama supporters getting assaulted just for supporting Obama.

    I can feed you dozens of examples of the inverse scenario.

    That's moving the goal posts isn't it?

    No, it's not moving the goal posts at all,.... the left has labeled trump supporters as "nazis" so in their mind it is acceptable to assault them.

    You know as well as I do that there is thousands of examples of trump supporters getting assaulted....

    The same thing didn't happen under Obama

    If you think it's on the same level then point to all the incidents where people supporting Obama got assaulted.

    I will change my opinion if you can back it up with facts..

    There is simply no way that a rational human breing could draw the conclusion that Obama supporters were getting attacked in the same kind of regularity

  10. President Mocks Ilhan Omar A Day After ‘Trump Lover’ Arrested For Death Threat Against Her
    Trump smirks about Muslim congresswoman in speech to GOP Jews in Vegas.

    President Donald Trump disdainfully mocked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in a Las Vegas speech a day after a man proclaiming that he “loves the president” was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill her.

    “A special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota,” Trump told members of the Republican Jewish Coalition in a ballroom of the Venetian Resort Saturday. “Oh, I forgot,” he smirked as the Republicans booed. “She doesn’t like Israel. I forgot. I’m so sorry. No she doesn’t like Israel, does she? Please, I apologize.”

    Patrick Carlineo, 55, of upstate New York was arrested after allegedly calling the Muslim congresswoman a “terrorist” and vowed to put a “bullet in her [expletive] skull” in a March phone call with a member of her Washington staff, according to a statement Friday by the U.S. attorney’s office for the Western District of New York.

    When he was arrested Carlineo “stated that he was a patriot, he loves the president, and that he hates radical Muslims in our government,” according to the criminal complaint against him.
