Skip to comments.Judge Refuses to Dismiss Terror Charges Against Young Conservative Who Posted Rifle Pic on Social Media
Posted on 06/29/2020 9:09:29 AM PDT by Enlightened1
20-year-old Lucas Gerhard, who faces up to 20 years in prison for posting a picture of his rifle on social media, was denied his motion to dismiss charges on June 11 in a Chippewa County court in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.
Big League Politics broke the story earlier this year of how Gerhard was banned from continuing his studies at Lake Superior State University dorm and charged with making terroristic threats because he posted an image that triggered a far-left student on campus. Because the student was scared by a picture of a firearm with text making fun of liberal snowflakes, Gerhard is facing decades in prison as a result.
The Court repeatedly denied a request made by Gerhard’s lawyer, Nick Somberg to record the proceedings and broadcast them on the internet. They are determined to keep the railroading of an outspoken conservative under the cover of darkness, particularly now that the story has gone viral. Many supporters of Gerhard were denied entry into the courthouse as well, with the COVID-19 pandemic used as an excuse to keep them out.
If he had posted it with a threat against Trump, FraudCo’s SS would have quickly investigated and “cleared” him.
I hope they dont look at any boot camp pictures on social media.
The text matters.
What did he say?
Which is very appropriate considering the “judge” in question.
But ... 20 years for triggering a snowflake?
I (seriously) regard the left’s clenched fist gesture - ubiquitous at all of their rallies - as an implicit threat of violence. Why are they never charged?
Heres what he wrote, along with that picture of his rifle.
Taking this bad boy up. This ought to make the snowflakes melt a and I mean snowflakes as in snow
I guess the Taking this bad boy up part was worth an investigation. It could have many different meanings. So have some agent go talk to him. But an automatic arrest? No way.
Oh, and one more thing. Kathy Griffin held up a model of Trumps severed head. That was an explicit call to violence. Yet she was not arrested. I wonder why. Its quite the mystery (not).

Maybe there was a bottle of Aunt Jemima syrup in the background. If so he will get the chair.

See my post #9. I had to do a bit of digging. And I do find it odd that Blunt Force Truth would omit that important fact. Perhaps they are pursuing an agenda as well.
The point is to bankrupt you as you are forced to defend yourself against a nonsensical charge.
These judges need to be impeached and thrown out.
If only we had either a First or a Second Amendment...
Having an agent talk to him is the stupidest of stupid.
It’s called knowing the difference between a real threat and a non threat.
The picture in question.
I believe you answered your own question. They are the Left, the Socialists, the Communists.
> Having an agent talk to him is the stupidest of stupid. <
I must respectfully disagree. The kid did not post Heres my new deer rifle or anything like that. He posted something that could be fairly described as odd.
Odd things should be gently checked out.
Is everyone starting to see the future? We better get ready for watering the tree of liberty. Seriously start to prepare mentally and physically. There is no way we are going to vote to change the corruption. Only war will bring peace.
