Right-Wing Lawyer Calls For War On ‘Blue State Liberals’ In Violent Online Manifesto

You’ve probably never heard of Kurt Schlichter, in part because he’s mostly insignificant and unknown outside of the extreme right-wing echo chamber he’s a part of.

Schlichter calls himself a “successful trial lawyer,” but he also writes for the right-wing website Townhall.com, which features headlines calling Vice President Kamala Harris “b****y” and titles like this: “This Is 1938: First, They Came for the Unvaccinated.”

According to Schlichter, the time has come for war between the right and the left in the United States, and he was kind enough to spell out his evil thoughts in a Twitter screed/manifesto that should get him banned from the social media platform, but probably won’t. (Feel free to report him to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey; I did.)

Schlichter begins with a declaration of war:

Evangelical Marxists? I could have sworn I was just a liberal Democrat, but apparently I’m a Marxist who wants to convert others by using Das Kapital as my Bible.

But Schlichter is just getting warmed up. He continues and gets more deranged with each post:

Rather than using logic and facts, Schlichter concludes his little manifesto with a third-grade denouement:

Oh wow! “They” started it. We started it by daring to be open-minded, educated, and accepting of others with one exception: We refuse to tolerate the intolerant assholes who populate the Party of Trump and think the United States should be a white homeland of white, Anglo-Saxon Christians. The American Fourth Reich is what Schlichter and his ilk want to see take place here in the United States.

Sorry, Kurt, but you can fuck right off. If you want to declare war on the majority of Americans, we’re going to stand up and make sure you know that you’re outnumbered.

DOJ May May Have A Way To Destroy All Right-Wing Extremist Groups In The U.S.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is ratcheting up the pressure on the insurrectionists who attacked the U.S. Capitol in January, leaving five people dead, with reports suggesting that federal prosecutors are planning to charge as many as 500 more people for their connection to the riots.

And now we’re learning that the Justice Department may use a legal theory which would allow them to take down right-wing extremist groups such as the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.

 

Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi was a guest on MSNBC recently and was asked by host Alex Witt about the ongoing investigation:

“The Justice Department is now saying it expects to charge at least 500 people with taking part in those riots on Capitol Hill. So far over 400 have been charged in what the DOJ is calling one of the largest investigations in U.S. history.

“DOJ lawyers is calling this one of the largest — not just because of the number of people charged, but the sheer volume of evidence. It includes, last count, something like 20,000 hours of video from surveillance and police body cameras. I mean, can you put this in perspective and your reaction to all of it?”

Figliuzzi responded:

“Yeah, Alex, certainly, in my 25-year career including, by the way, 9/11 and the aftermath and inquiry of that — this makes that pale in comparison in terms of the span and scope of this investigation and the volume of evidence related to it.”

And that’s where the legal theory about charging groups with conspiracy and other crimes that would shatter them into a million pieces comes into play, Figliuzzi explained:

“And I am hearing from people I talked to involved in the investigation that yes, indeed, they will hit the 500 number in arrests and maybe surpass that, but that far more importantly, Alex, the magnitude of the charges will move from things like trespass and assault all of the way up to conspiracy and we’re seeing more of that and even possibly sedition and even possibly an enterprise theory of approach which is under consideration to take down and dismantle groups like Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.”

Dismantle them completely. Destroy them and everything they stand for. They’re right-wing terrorists and belong in prison.
