Hillary supporters send death threats to Electoral College

The Left, who portray themselves as “tolerant” and “pro-diversity,” are anything but, as amply illustrated by the death threats issued at Trump and those who’d voted for him. See:

Of the many death threats made by Hillary supporters, the most serious that warrant our attention — and dissemination via your email and social media — are death threats targeting Electoral College voters who, on December 19, will actually determine who will be America’s next President.

Fearing a tyranny of the majority, our Founding Fathers created the Electoral College — as well as the U.S. Senate — to protect small states from being dominated by states with large populations. As you can see in this map of the 2016 election, the blue spots are cities and urban areas with large populations. If the Electoral College were abolished, it would be the mostly Democratic urban residents who get to decide who win presidential elections.

All states except Maine and Nebraska have chosen their Electoral College electors on a “winner-take-all” basis since the 1880s. Under the winner-take-all system, the state’s electors are awarded to the candidate with the most votes in that state. Although there have been very few occasions when an elector voted contrary to a pledge, no federal law actually requires electors to honor their pledge, which explains Hillary supporters’ last-ditch effort to subvert and upend the 2016 presidential election via death threats to the Electors.

Michael Gerstein reports for The Detroit News, Nov. 17, 2016, that an online petition on change.org signed by more than 4.3 million people is calling on the nation’s electors to vote for Clinton instead of Trump:

“We are calling on the electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.”

But some Hillary supporters are threatening the electors with death.

Michael Banerian, an Electoral College voter for the state of Michigan, says he has received emails, including death threats, urging him to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Banerian, 22, is a political science senior at Oakland University and a youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party.

On Dec. 19, Banerian is scheduled to join 15 other Michiganians to cast their electoral votes for Republican President-elect Donald Trump. But the Michigan Republican Party claims that Hillary supporters have deluged Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton. Banerian said:

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die.’ I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive. Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote. The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”

Banerian’s claim is verified by The Detroit News. The newspaper confirmed one message containing a death wish and another containing a death threat, in which the sender threatened to “put a bullet” in Banerian’s mouth.

51-year-old Kenneth Crider is another Michigan Electoral College elector who’s a heating and air conditioning professional from Livonia. Although he hasn’t received any death threats or intimidating emails, Crider said he has received more than 300 emails from people in other states asking him to vote for Clinton instead of Trump on Dec. 19, many of which were from teachers and professors trying to explain to him the gravity of the situation, urging him to change his mind. But Crider said he’s “100 percent behind Donald Trump.”

Indeed, Michigan law requires the state’s 16 electors to cast their votes for the presidential candidate who wins the majority of voters, said Secretary of State spokesman Fred Woodhams. With 96% of the votes counted, Trump wins Michigan with 47.6% (2,279,805 votes) vs. Hillary’s 47.4% (2,268,193 votes). Woodhams said that even if Banerian or another elector had a change of heart, other Michigan electors would just cast another vote for Trump.

Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson said that hearing from the electors that they have received death threats, “I’m interested in getting a consensus from the group … and seeing if it’s something that we should report to the police. It’s obviously something that we’re taking very seriously.”

Michigan Democratic Party Chairman Brandon Dillon condemned the death threat and intimidating message sent to Banerian: “That’s absolutely wrong, and anybody who sends a threat like that frankly should be prosecuted.”

Other states also report that their Electors have received death threats.

According to WND, Clinton-backers are targeting roughly 160 Republican electorates in the 15 states that Trump won and don’t have laws bounding the electorates to the winner: Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued a statement urging Georgians and others to refrain from using threatening and disparaging language to manipulate electors:

“The Presidential election is over but, unfortunately, the vitriol remains,” stated Secretary of State Brian Kemp. “Our office has received numerous reports of individuals hurling insults and threats at Georgia’s Electors because they are unsettled with America’s choice for President of the United States. This is absolutely unacceptable and those participating in or encouraging these efforts should stop. The electoral process in America has worked, and everyone – Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and others – should respect the will of Georgia’s voters and the Electors who represent them.”

Fox News reported that Arizona electors are also being harassing and threatened by Clinton supporters:

“Arizona’s presidential electors are reportedly being hit by a flood of emails and phone calls demanding they defy the voters in their state and choose Hillary Clinton instead of President-elect Donald Trump — as part of a last-gasp bid to overturn the election.”

BuzzFeed reported on Nov. 16 that national anti-Trump protest group #NotMyPresident Alliance has released the personal information of dozens of Electoral College members in states that voted Republican. The group distributed a spreadsheet to Hillary supporters which includes the electors’ personal phone numbers, addresses, religions, races, genders and candidate preference.

  1. Once again, the left has confirmed just how far they are willing to go to break the law. They have no patience, no morals, no ethics, and seem to major in bullying and threats. Not to mention being very sore losers.

  4. If anything, the full weight of the law should be brought to bear on those who have made death threats. The left has become so unhinged that their ‘script’ was not followed by the ‘vast unwashed’ (i.e., us ‘deplorables’ as their Dear Leader call us) that their actions need to be taken seriously.

    As Glenn47 notes, they have shown who they really are behind the platitudes about ‘Peace, Love & Understanding”. A bit of education on ‘taking responsibility for your actions’ and that ‘words have meaning’ may help others who think these threats are acceptable.

    • Alas, NOTHING will be done by Obama’s DOJ. But that doesn’t mean local law enforcement can’t hold the death threaters accountable. However, LE can’t and won’t act until someone lodges a complaint with police.

  6. How did “Not my problem” GET the information they released? I thought the Electors were supposed to be kept anonymous to PROTECT them from JUST THIS THING. This could easily be seen as “Tampering with an Election”,which I believe is pretty seriously ILLEGAL.

  9. I think a case can be made for Gross Malfeasance of Office against every Federal Official in the Elections office, FBI, DoJ, and the White House that isn’t “busting their asses” to stop this. If they are intentionally ignoring it for Party reasons, it goes beyond that into area that could be Treasonous against the Constitution. At least Aiding and Abetting a Felony.
    If any of these electors are hurt, or if any actually change their vote because of the threats, that could cause a Yuge Case!
    And that includes Obozo & Lowretta.

  11. We’ve put up with eight years of their lame brain idiocy. Now they’re having a hard time surviving 8 days of Trump and he’s not even in charge yet.
    There’s gonna be exploding libatard heads all over the place. Ww may not get a lot of relief but it should be amusing. Try not to enjoy this too much. Bad karma and all you know. Nobody like to be kicked when they’re down. So they might want to quit kicking themselves. Ha-Ha-Ha

    • A lot more than eight years. The same sort of people who today are calling for Trump’s assassination and the begeading of his wife under the banner of Love Trumps Hate we’re dancing around the guillotines under the banner of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity during the French Revolution and then massacring men, women, and children by countless millions during the last century unde the banner of those same victims’ rights. Nothing’s changed much about the Left’s moral posturing, as ever transparent concealment and hypocritical justification for the sanguinary lust to annihilate Logos and destroy Western Civilization.

  12. I certainly hope that the future President Trump can and will pursue prosecutions of these death threats—and that he ignores any and all desires and efforts to eliminate the Electoral College.
    Most people just don’t have any idea of the danger we are all still in. And again, once inaugurated, Mr. Trump MUST make good on his stated desire to prosecute the Clintons. The future of the Republic and our society and even the Rule of Law depend upon it.
    We are hanging by a very slender thread.

  13. Now I’m hearing from the TRUCKING Industry that Trump ALSO needs to eliminate the non-trucking pencil pushers from the trucking regulatory departments,since they keep adding more and more restrictions and requirements that are effectively making it impossible to make a living with an 18 wheeler anymore. I have faith that,if Truckers can get the true story to Trump’s Administration,he’ll gladly take up their plight.

    • It’s another EXTINCTION PROTOCOL, Truck: They know that, as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, that the trucks and the men (and women) who drive them are the KEY PART of the Supply Chain. Put these people out of work, and there goes your Supply Chain. It is a simple and excellent way to cause rioting and mayhem in the streets: ANY society is only THREE DAYS AWAY from this outcome once the Supply Chain is cut. And YES, Donald Trump knows this quite well!
      I am cautiously optimistic.

  14. These so called “popular votes” for Clinton should be looked into to see if they are actually “living” voters and “legal” voters. After all, it has been brought to attention that in some states there are quite a few dead out there still voting…I believe close to 2 million have been the claims. And if there are that many dead voters, can you imagine how many are illegal?

  15. First and foremost, if the Electoral College casts their votes on Election Day, it shouldn’t be 1 1/2 months before votes are actually decided (December 19/20). If they voted on Election Day, the votes should be solidified and final.
    Secondly, these Clinton supporters who are making death threats to the people in the Electoral College should be investigated and arrests carried out by the U.S. Marshalls.
    Thirdly, these threats of violence and murdering hopefully reinforces the Electoral College members to show these Bolshevik anarchists their threats will only give them a higher incentive to keep their minds and hearts to remain what they decided back on Election Day and no amount of threats, intimidation, petitions, etc will be successful.

  16. I say crack down those email senders and prosecute them, strip them of their citizenship and exile them to Syria. Especially the one who provided the spread sheet of the electors containing the elector’s infos. That person should recieve the heaviest punishment for revealing the electors’ infos. And also fire the teachers allowing students to do a skit of assassinating our President elect Donald Trump

  17. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this amazing post. What Michael Banerian has reported is absolutely horrible, showing the motis operandi of the Left. Terrible. This is indicative of how “tolerant” they are. . .
