(Patriot.Buzz) – Underscoring the dangers conservatives face while in the search for a better country, a 30-year-old resident of Dover, New Hampshire, issued a dire threat against a GOP presidential candidate.
In swift action, law enforcement apprehended Tyler Anderson on charges of threatening entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy. The arrest followed Anderson’s alarming response to a text message from Ramaswamy’s campaign, which was spreading information about an upcoming political event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Hampshire released a statement detailing the charges against Anderson, who is accused of violating federal law by “transmitting in interstate commerce a threat to injure the person of another.”
The response from Anderson to the campaign’s mass text message was chilling in its explicitness. He wrote, “Great, another opportunity for me to blow his brains out!” and added, “I’m going to kill everyone who attends and then f*** their corpses,” as stated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. This disturbing message led to his arrest and subsequent charges.
Further investigation into Anderson’s background revealed a pattern of similar threatening behavior. As reported by WMUR, court documents disclosed that Anderson had previously threatened another, yet unnamed, political candidate.
In that incident, he responded to a notification about an upcoming event with the message, “Fantastic, now I know where to go so I can blow that (expletive)’s head off!” and a subsequent message conveyed that he hoped “you have the stamina for a mass shooting!” These repeated threats highlight a concerning trend in Anderson’s actions.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) conducted the investigation leading to Anderson’s arrest. He is scheduled for an initial court appearance, where the severe nature of these allegations will begin to be addressed.
If found guilty of the charges, Anderson faces a significant legal penalty. The potential consequences include up to five years in federal prison, a possible three years of supervised release, and a hefty fine of up to $250,000, underscoring the severity of his threats and the legal repercussions that follow.
