Pelosi Receives Death Threats for Her Stance on COVID-19 Aid

A Texas man threatened to kill US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the congressional response to the coronavirus outbreak, saying she and other Democrats “need to be removed at any cost necessary,” federal authorities said.

According to the US Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas, Gavin Weslee Blake Perry, 27, of Wichita Falls, accused Pelosi on his Facebook page last week of being part of a satanic cult, as well as other Democratic lawmakers who work closely with her

“Dems of the establishment will be removed at any cost necessary and yes that means by death,” Perry wrote in the post, which was still online early Friday.

The ominous post included a link to a story from a pro-life outlet accusing Pelosi of trying to include abortion funding in the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package, Perry’s Facebook profile shows.

In another public post earlier in the week, Perry urged people to “use live rounds” and an abbreviation for “shoot on sight” while targeting Democrats, prosecutors said.

Police said Perry told them he does not recognize the authority of the federal government. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

“The Department of Justice takes the security of our public servants seriously. Americans are entitled to voice their opinions, but we will not allow them to threaten our officials’ physical safety,” U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said.

“This defendant’s threats against the Speaker and law enforcement agents are wholly inexcusable, and we look forward to bringing him to justice.”

Perry, who made his initial court appearance Thursday, has been charged with transmitting a threatening communication in interstate commerce. If convicted, he faces up to five years in prison.

Perry admitted that the Facebook account belonged to him, but insisted he was merely trying to warn fellow Americans to be wary of the “tyrannical” government, prosecutors said.

Perry also allegedly told investigators he believed they were violating his First Amendment right to free speech and that he intended to refuse to come to court after being released from jail on bond.

  1. personally I think Pelosi needs to retire and let someone younger take her place ! She is sarcastic and too old to make rational decisions ! For instance tearing up the papers from Trumps state of the nation speech ! Unfortunately the Dems and republicans are so far apart and have been for years ,that everything that gets accomplished gets eliminated by the next President etc ! 1 step forward and 2 back ! Besides being such a waste its very sad for our country !! They should all resign and let some open minded people replace the money hungry people in D.C. !! Clean house !!

    Well I’m against all death threats but I am curious why they are taking this one so serious but not the hundreds of other threats made to our president “including celebrities” all over Twitter, etc to our countries President the past 3 years?!
