Trump Hotel Scare

Authorities Investigating Threat Against Trump International Hotel

Unsurprisingly, the threat came from a socialist hiding behind social media.

The Trump International Hotel was the center of a recent socialistic threat.

To say that supporters of President Donald Trump cannot express their political beliefs without being bombarded from the left is not an understatement. Recently, several pro-Trump groups had planned to meet at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Yet upon an intolerant socialist hearing of the plan, he or she sent out a threat to obtain “bloodstained MAGA hats,” causing the local police to address the concern. While no act of violence, thankfully, occurred, the story is nonetheless frustrating considering the increasing intolerance on the left side of the political spectrum that makes those on the right demand what is wrong with them.

The most recent example of such derangement occurred prior to an event scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening at the Trump Hotel.

It was planned by conservative activist and Gateway Pundit contributor Cassandra Fairbanks who posted about the event on Twitter, asking “Who is going to the MAGA meetup tonight?”

The meeting was said to consist of “several different pro-Trump groups including Virginia Women for Trump” as well as “members of the media, midterm candidate, and people who work closely with the president.”

One user, who formerly went by the handle @Dreamstarjustic, posted a picture of a handgun with the caption “I am coming with a gun and I expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies.”

Naturally, this caused concern with the local Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia which immediately began investigating the incident, according to spokesman Hugh Carew.

Officers on behalf of the department surrounded the hotel before and during the event to ensure safety. Employees and security with the hotel also were said to be on high alert for any suspicious behavior.

Conservative activists who had planned to attend the event were said to not have been deterred from the threat.

Unsurprisingly, the individual hiding behind the social media account prides him or herself in supporting the Democratic Socialists for America, an extreme left group.

Shortly after sending the threatening message, Fairbanks updated followers that the user had since changed the social media handle to @hbomberguyisbae before the account was ultimately suspended.

Also unsurprising to those concerned with recent social media bias, Twitter did not initially appear to take any action against the violent user or the threat itself aside from the fact that multiple users reported it to the company as well as the FBI.

One user, @gordondesign05, contributed to the concern in locating an online photo of hand-carved guns for sale. The picture of the firearm in the threatening tweet is identical and appears to have originated from the website, so the user perhaps did not even own a gun.

Still, the threat was real and required police to act accordingly. Yet others expressed being more upset that Twitter did not appear to take the threat seriously with many noting that commentator Alex Jones had been permanently banned from the site despite never having threatened anyone’s lives.

However, this type of behavior from a liberal user is not surprising, especially considering that the user expressed pride in having been banned by multiple users or pages which are listed on the profile.

Yet the threat came just days following California republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters being verbally and physically attacked over the weekend.

Naturally, in that case as well, the violent instigator was strictly anti-Trump, as expressed by his “disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about the republican party and President Donald Trump.”

Of course, it is hard to take the left seriously when members of their party continually demonstrate that they are much more intolerant than conservatives despite the right being constantly rereferred to as ‘racist’ while liberals claim to be open-minded and progressive.

Turning to violence on behalf of any political party is inappropriate, even by means of a threatening tweet, and speaks volumes about the party’s ideals.

Also highly disturbing is that the threats were made on 9/11 of all days. Yet that did not stop other leftists from posting horrible September 11, posts, some of which implied that America ‘deserved’ to have been subject to such terrorism.

Additionally, still a sensitive topic is that of gun violence pertaining to mass shootings, so even if the tweet was meant to be some sort of prank, it was not to be taken lightly.

Unfortunately, this type of intolerant outburst against a group of people with differing views is exactly what can be expected from liberal socialists considering that officials on the left have continually encouraged attacking conservatives.

While Washington, D.C. authorities and the FBI likely have more pressing manners to deal with than an upset socialist, both have taken the threat seriously and will, hopefully, locate the responsible party and hold them accountable.
