US Department of Justice: U.S. District Judge Paula Xinis sentenced Thomas Patrick Connally, Jr., age 56, most recently of Snowshoe, West Virginia to 37 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for making threats against a federal official, specifically for sending emails threatening harm to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the current Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Connally further admitted threatening Dr. Francis Collins, the former Director of the NIH, Dr. Rachel Levine, currently the Assistant Secretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as a Massachusetts public health official and a religious leader ... "Everyone has the right to disagree, but you do not have the right to threaten a federal official's life," said U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, Erek L. Barron. "Threats like these will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

Pause for a moment to consider what this reveals about the inner life of these people.

Imagine fascism liberating such fantasies.

When you say things that contradict a cult leader, cult members want to kill you. Same as it's always been.

A Humanist a Christian and a Jew all get threatened with death by a D-bag.

The level of hate that the Right has fed their base is stunning. I hear comments about Fauci from people that have no f**king clue what the hell they are talking about, but they demonize Fauci. It's all complete nonsense. The Right is a disease.

The Right loves scapegoats.
It's a core part of the belief system.

Good to see this. Much harder than the 1/6ers are getting - unfortunately they are not getting the real sentences they deserve.

Three years of anger management in prison will learn him (as they say in West Virginia) a thing or three.
