Arrests Made By FBI After Unnerving Death Threats Against Conservative Activist

Folks, we are all Americans, and it may be high time to remind ourselves of that fact.

Our nation is living in unprecedented political times, at least for those of us who are under the age of 150.  Not since the Civil War has there been this much animosity among the American people, and it’s no secret where this nonsense is coming from:  The sensationalist mainstream media, whose ratings and paychecks are dependent upon whether or not we tune in and watch commercials.

And if their own salaciousness isn’t even to shove us into anarchy, the fact that the “news” is now a competitive business, all of these networks are competing with one another in order to garner your viewership…further escalating the hyperbole and nonsense.

All of this vitriol has culminated in violence, or threats of violence, aimed in purely political directions.

Ben Shapiro is just the latest victim.

A man was arrested in Washington state on Wednesday after reportedly making death threats against conservative talk show host Ben Shapiro.

Shapiro told Fox News he couldn’t comment on pending legal proceedings but confirmed the situation, as reported by TMZ, on Twitter, thanking law enforcement “for their quick and hard work here.”

The suspect reportedly threatened both Shapiro and his family. Sources told the outlet the threats were “extremely serious.”

Shapiro, who currently serves as editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and hosted an election show on Fox News last year, filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department related to the threats, according to TMZ.

A palpable turn in the public-political relationship occurred early in the Trump presidency, after Kathy Griffin’s “Trump beheading” photoshoot gave way, just two weeks to the day later, to the attempted assassination of the GOP charity baseball team by former Bernie Sanders campaign worker James T. Hodgkinson.
