Last Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Castro Valley, California, a Trump hater and gun-control activist tried to stab Republican congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switch blade.
As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, Peters was working an election booth at a town festival when Farzad Vincent Fazeli, 35, shouting “Fuck Trump! Fuck Trump!,” threw a coffee cup at Peters. Peters said he threw Fazeli to the ground, but Fazeli hopped back up and reached into his pocket for the switchblade, screaming: “I’m gonna kill you, motherfucker!”.
Peters grabbed a sign from a nearby booth and braced to use it as a shield. Fortunately, Fazeli’s switchblade’s knife wouldn’t shoot out. A bystander stepped in and urged Fazeli to calm down, who then left the booth.
Witnesses corroborated Peters’ account of what happened.
Peters reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office, which had deputies seated a few booths away. Fazeli was soon arrested at a nearby bank and charged on Tuesday with a felony count of making criminal threats and misdemeanor counts of exhibiting a deadly weapon and possessing a switchblade.
Fazeli has past convictions in Alameda County for burglary and battery, but is licensed to work as a security guard in California, according to state documents. Information Liberation points out that Fazeli’s Facebook shows he’s a pro-gun control “March For Our Lives” supporter who wants to disarm the American public “presumably so he and his ilk can have an easier time killing us.”
Rudy Peters, 56, a founder and co-owner of AARD Solutions, LLC, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, is running for the 15th Congressional District of California (webpage here) and is a supporter of President Trump. Peters’ opponent is incumbent Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin).
Meanwhile, on the night of August 1, 2018 in Somerset, England, pro-aborts spray-painted the home of pro-life Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg with death threats.
As reported by The Sun, the vandals spray-painted profanities and “shut up and die” on the family’s garage, and “posh scum” and “politics death” on a patio window. In the family’s yard, they desecrated a cross with condoms, and spray-painted the word “scum” and an anarchist symbol on a family car. The vandals also stuck a dildo covered with a condom on the vehicle.
Luckily, Rees-Mogg, his wife and their six children were on vacation in New York.
Abortion is legal for basically any reason up to 6 months in England, and later in a wide variety of circumstances. A pro-life Catholic, Rees-Mogg has called for an end to abortion. He told the BBC in 2017, “There are 185,000 abortions carried out each year, I think that is a deep sadness.” He said he would support an amendment to restrict abortions “by as many weeks as possible” but admitted that it probably would not happen because most British politicians are pro-abort.
LifeNews.com points out that pro-life politicians in the United States also have been targets of vandalism, death threats and violence. At least three prominent pro-life U.S. representatives, within one week last July, all received death threats.
