The Democratic Party’s “abolish ICE” platform just got a little more disturbing. A leftist loser from Massachusetts, home of ICE-hating Senator Elizabeth Warren, was arrested after he offered $500 to anyone who kills an ICE agent. Don’t worry, the liberal media won’t blame democrats over their violent anti-ICE rhetoric for this. In fact, I’m almost certain President Trump and the NRA will take the brunt of the liberal media finger pointing, because that’s all they have.
Fox News reports:
A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.
Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.
Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.
On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”
Let me guess, Twitter did not suspend this guy’s account because threats against Republicans and law enforcement don’t violate their rules.
And just in case you think this guy is way outside of the Democratic Party’s beliefs…
FBI Special Agent in Charge Harold Shaw said that Ziobrowski had expressed “extreme anti-U.S.” rhetoric on his account, and professed support for “socialist” and “communist” ideology.
So he’s basically an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-style Democratic Socialist? Why does this not surprise me?
I’ll tell you what does surprise me: This loser’s tweet only got 2 likes. With the way liberals are and their complete hatred of law enforcement, I would have thought this would have tens of thousands of likes and retweets.
But hang on, because this story just got even more leftist. Here is The Nation contributor Sean McElwee defending the 1st Amendment right to solicit the murder of federal agents and sitting US Senators:
Are the free speech warriors going to oppose this?
No lol of course. They don’t care about state suppression of speech. They’re highly paid trolls and the editors who publish them should all tender their resignation in shame. https://t.co/5juKaTIwGP

I was going to offer anyone $500 to pull Sean McElwee’s head out of his ass, but I don’t really care that much, plus he’d just put it right back up there. But yeah, liberals are horrible awful terrible people.
What makes this super-liberal in every way is that the left does anything and everything to shut down speech they disagree with, but think that threatening the lives of conservatives is protected free speech. You can have an option on things, but death threats aren’t covered by the Constitution.
