Arizona Wingnut Wants to Arrest Stabenow for Iran Deal Vote

Arizona Wingnut Wants to Arrest Stabenow for Iran Deal Vote September 24, 2015

PlanetWingnuttiaRemember Jon Ritzheimer, the world class dumbass from Arizona who tried to organize that big anti-Muslim rally and then started a GoFundMe page trying to raise $10 million to ““protect his family or run against” John McCain? Well he’s back and now he’s planning to come here to Michigan and arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason for her vote in favor of the Iran nuclear deal. Seriously.

Capitol Police are investigating a man identifying himself as an “Oathkeeper” and an “American Patriot who has everything to lose” who has threatened to arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason because of her support for the Iran nuclear deal.

Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona resident who reportedly attracted FBI attention when he organized an anti-Muslim protest rally and “draw Muhammad” cartoon contest at a Phoenix mosque, shared his plan to organize with fellow U.S. Marines in an open letter posted online Monday.

“We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” states the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”

Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.

But there’s more. Ritzheimer posted all of this to an anti-government extremist website and it includes even more detail on his plans:

“I have been to war and I do not want to see bloodshed in our own country,” said Ritzheimer, who admits he was honorably discharged for violating the Marines’ tattoo policy.

“We do not seek violence but we will be armed and ready to defend and uphold our oath to the constitution,” he added. “There is no reason these people can’t be held accountable and have their day in court.”

I’ve said this many times, but these people are just dying to start a war. They want the government to respond to their threats of violence with violence. And frankly, I’m all for it. If these yahoo gun fetishists show up and pull their weapons trying to arrest Stabenow, her police detail would be fully justified in using force to subdue them.
