Scott Presler is a conservative gay activist, a vocal Trump supporter and Twitter star. Scott is very popular in pro-Trump circles. He is one of President Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters.
On Wednesday Scott received a voice recording today, which I have on my phone, of someone saying “I hope you [expletive] die because you’re the one who deserves to be [expletive] pipe bombed.”
Scott went to the police and filed a police report following the treat today.
Scott told The Gateway Pundit, “You know, I get harassing phone calls all the time. It’s usually people who leave me voicemail rants. After already receiving 2 harassing voicemails today, I had to call the police after receiving the one about a pipe bomb. I do want to make one thing very clear: I won’t let these threats of terrorism stop me and I’ll be proudly speaking at the Walk Away march in D.C. this Saturday.”
Scott also sent The Gateway Pundit a copy of the recording. We are posting the threat here with Scott’s permission.
As Reported By WNAX:
The investigation into 10 pipe bombs sent to high-profile Democrats and critics of U.S. President Donald Trump is focusing on leads in Florida, a federal law enforcement source said on Thursday.
All the suspicious packages were believed to have gone through the U.S. Postal System at some point, the source said. Many of the packages had the return address of the Florida office of U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who formerly chaired the Democratic National Committee, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Former Vice President Joe Biden and actor Robert De Niro on Thursday became the seventh and eighth intended targets of the bombs, none of which exploded.
The bombs have heightened what already was a contentious campaign season ahead of the Nov. 6 elections in which Trump’s Republicans will try to maintain majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives. The episode has also called attention to the harsh rhetoric Trump wields against his rivals.
