State Police in New Hampshire investigating alleged Deplorable who threatened Boston reporter on camera

Grinning threat maker

Threat maker seemed to enjoy himself as "Macho Man" played in the background.

Alex DiPrato at Channel 7 reports State and local police in New Hampshire are investigating an incident in which guy came up to him and his cameraperson outside the Orangefest in Londonderry yesterday and threatened to blow up the two "motherfuckers," maybe that night.

somebody said "buy that man a beer!" immediately afterwords.

That meatball ain't no aberration, this is his loyal base. The hoods are off and they are proudly letting us all know exactly who they are.

It's a death cult fueled by racism, fear, and lies.

I believe Beverly Hills, but not sure. Sorry, Swirl if that isn't 'proof' enough for your high standards.

So, we have rainbow flag racists, American flag racists, Black racists and none of them have Molotov cocktails or anty-faa shields and masks.
They look like they're having a good time. Face it, people aren't buying the violence that the left is selling.

According to the Daily Mail article were this photo came from, the pro-trump crowd at this major-urban-area event may have numbered "as many as 400". That's pretty darn small these days, compared to events attended by people with opposing views. It's good that our country continues to celebrate the right of people - regardless of viewpoint - to peacefully march/protest. But I'd be wary of drawing any kind of conclusions about the flow of public opinion from a picture of a minor event.

Nor would I brag too much about the relative levels of violence "being sold" by the left/right, when we've just seen a young proud Trump supporter fatally shoot several people on camera.

Can you point us to where Biden supporters made a bomb threat to a member of a local news station?

Not to metion this wasn't Jim Acosta who got threatened, this was some unknown local Channel 7 News guy (no offense) just trying to do a quick live shot for the 6 o clock news that would have aired for all of 4 minutes and just go home. The poor guy is just doing his job.

And this stable genius had to waddle over and get in the guys face while mentioning bombings all while egged on by the crowd.

Yeah, it's "pretty much that".

Also what happened before some of those videos? We don't have all the context, for all we know that older white man might have assaulted someone and its mentioned in that thread.

Isn't that the typical response when the optics of a video don't meet your narrative?

No true Scotsman, or appeal to purity, is an informal fallacy in which one attempts to protect a generalization from counterexamples by changing the definition in an ad hoc fashion to exclude the counterexample.

You are asking such questions about the example I was asked to provide but you don't ask these questions of the original video. We're just surmising what's happening in both videos.

>Typical response when the optics of a video don't meet your narrative

Oh, most definitely--you did just that.

In relation to this threatening bully in NH, It doesn't matter if Biden (or Trump) shot someone on Fifth Avenue. The story is about a trumpster bully who threatened a channel 7 reporter, saying he was going to be bombed. No amount of both siderism changes the fact that this guy made a dangerous criminal threat.

I watched the people harrassing Rand Paul in DC. I didn't see or hear of anyone threatening him with death by bomb.
So the comparison is like most right wing propaganda...false.

If the police weren't there to push back the angry mob of Biden supporters do you think maybe the outcome would be different for Rand Paul?

They're not funny, and the perpetrator of a bomb threat could also be responsible for the death of people, as well. A person could drop dead of a heart attack, a stroke, or an asthma attack, or could have an epileptic seizure.

I still remember the day, years ago, when there was a bomb scare at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, which I attended from the fall of 1965 through the spring of 1969, and graduated from that June.

It was an icy-cold day, in the middle of January 1967. I was a Sophomore at my high school back then. In the middle of the morning, the high school was evacuated. It started out like a regular fire drill, and we were all milling about out in the cold without our winter coats. After being outside for so long, we all had to assemble in the high school gymnasium. The school Administration sent everybody out, gradually, by group, to our respective school buses, instead of sending us home, while the police, the Sudbury fire department, and the school administration searched the high school. Sending everybody home would've increased the chance of the perpetrator of the bomb scare doing it again, so we all sat on our respective school buses for a few hours, until it was okay to go back in.

The perpetrator of the bomb scare, a fourteen or fifteen year old Freshman at the high school, was caught fairly shortly thereafter. Since he was a juvenile delinquent, and was a white kid who lived in Lincoln, MA, a suburb of Boston, he spent the better part of a year in the Billerica House of Correction. We all learned of it, because it was announced to everybody over the school intercom.

The whole sordid state of affairs was rather incredible, and not funny.

There's a distinction between being just a loudmouth and threatening criminal assault. Were members of "the mob in DC" threatening the RNC attendees with being bombed, they would also be committing a criminal act.

He gets the Susan Collins Profile in Cowardice award, given to the legislator who throws the most dramatic pity party over being "threatened" by citizens "using their words" and petitioning for redress under the 1st Amendment. Scary stuff, being bumped by a bumbling cop who fell backwards after shoving somebody.

You know that Amendment that comes before the 2nd Amendment? Might want to read it sometime.

You might want to read the Amendment that you so self righteously cite.
Clue..."...peaceably..."
We've been subjected to a summer of rioting, arson, looting and murder.
That's not covered by the First Amendment.

As far as Senator Paul, he survived a mass shooting where a gunman specifically targeted Republicans during a softball game. He survived being attacked by a left of center neighbor. Hell, he survived C-19.

People are getting sick of the violence. I saw an arrest spread a week or two ago. Twelve people arrested.

All white.

You might want to take your own good advice and stay in your own lane. Your thinking is so twisted left that you have no idea, or worse, are intentionally blind to the basic truths out there.

The videos are real. Denying them just makes you look foolish.

But not before thousands of people saw this man accost a complete stranger and threaten him.

He apparently thought a local news reporter was Anderson Cooper. This is what happens when Trump calls a free press "The Enemy of the People".

I don't know why it's been taken down, but I saw the video early this am. The guy threatening the reporter is a jerk. Possibly a criminal, too. I didn't listen to the end, but if he made threats, I say prosecute.

The people burning and looting are jerks. And many of them criminals IMO, for doing so. I hope they're charged.

It's not an either/or. (As an ironic side note, the rioters might also help Trump win).

A long-standing tradition in American journalism - one that is instilled in basic journalism ethics courses across the country - is that the reporter must not be the story. Reporters are merely observers, and as such, are required to keep views and biases out of the story they’re covering. Otherwise, the story that’s delivered to the reader becomes skewed. That all-important element of public trust slowly erodes. -- Ted Robberson, Editor, St. Louis Post-Dispatch Feb 26, 2016

I've never heard of Alex DiPrato but will he or she continue to cover President Trump after claiming to be a victim of one of the President's supporters? It might be hard to stay neutral if neutrality is still a longstanding tradition. Of course the threats should be fully prosecuted.

That sounds good, but in this case it would mean "thugs can threaten or physically attack reporters, and nobody should talk about it." You want people to be able to threaten the press without anyone except the victims knowing about it.

This isn't "hey look, I'm standing out there in a snowstorm." This is reporting on an attempt to interfere with freedom of the press. First amendment, remember.

The reporter in this case is the story for the same reason that Ronald Reagan was the story when Hinckley tried to kill him.

Alex DiPrato is not claiming to be a victim. He's simply sharing a video of him being verbally accosted while minding his own business and doing his job. It's the truth of what happened and it was caught on camera. You want him to remove himself from reporting on future stories about Trump because a Trump supporter threatened to bomb him? That's not how journalism works.

Is there a backup link to the video? I read he took it down at the request of LEO who are doing an investigation? Was it that guy was Nelson Zapata, the guy from NH who makes those scary F.B. videos on Trump and has been on the news with Donald Trump Jr. at the past NH rallies? I dont understand how hes still allowed on the platform?? Would like UHub to look into that!
