Our nation has become bereft with political strife; there can be no doubt about that. This is a nation who shuffles ever closer to the precipice of catastrophe with every new week. And, ever more frightening is the fact that we barely acknowledge it.
This week, the simmering angst of the nation came to a boil in the Bluegrass State, where an unhinged message appeared to threaten a number of lawmakers, as well as target the children of Kentucky wholesale.
Local and federal authorities were investigating threats in an angry message to kill Kentucky school children as well as Sen. Rand Paul and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, both of who hail from the state.Advertisement - story continues below
The message, which was obtained by Fox News Digital, warned of targeting both Republican lawmakers and appears to insinuate the killing of children who voted for them in threats sent to the Bowling Green Independent Schools, the Warren County Schools and the Allen County School systems.
The message was downright terrifying.
“U want to vote mich mcconnell and rand paul then u all deal with what comes with that,” the threat states. “And the only way ur gonna learn is when ur f******* racist cracker kids are on the ground bleeding out. Then you’ll know what the rest of us have to live with on a daily basis because of the fascists you voted in.”
That wasn’t all:
“I want you all to look at your dead kids and know it was because of how you voted,” the statement continued.
“I’m gonna be f****** famous. Nik Crus ain’t s***!” the threat stated, referring to Nikolas Cruz, who is serving a life sentence for the 2018 Parkland mass shooting.
The local FBI office revealed that they were aware of the threats, but that they were not deeming them credible at this time.
