James Patrick, of Winter Haven, got himself arrested after announcing numerous times his threatening Facebook posts relating to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
“I am about to accept an offer on my house. Just to get more money to fund my plan to kill democrat office holders and their families involved in this sham to keep kav from being on the Supreme Court,” Said the completely reasonable and obviously sane man.
Patrick, 53, is being charged with writing a “threat to kill or injure” after authorities were alerted to Facebook posts that Patrick wrote, threatening to shoot members of Congress depending on the outcome of the confirmation hearing, as well as any law enforcement officer who showed up at his home. And thus confirming all of our’s suspicions that he does… indeed have literal shit for brains.
Patrick was booked into Polk County Jail, where he was held on $500,000 bond. According to jail records, he was previously arrested in 2009 for battery.
His Facebook page reads like a satirical rendition of a racist, incel, with stacks of wrestling and soldier of fortune magazines all over the place.
Patrick’s posts didn’t just include threats to the lives of Congressmen and women, his violent ideals extended back years to the 2016 presidential election, where he wrote a post wishing that Donald Trump would beat Hillary Clinton with a hammer.
“Th [sic] presidential debate is about to start ..would be funny as hell if.. when they both got behind their [sic] podiums .. Trump reached over to Hillary and Bashed her in the head with a hammer and said ‘There’s another concussion for you Hillary.’”
In a different post from 2017, he wrote “I can’t do this by myself! Need more conservatives going into liberals’ homes at night killing them in their sleep!”
Another, more recent post written on September 27 made a vulgar reference to “running a train” on Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, while another post talks about needing a woman to “clean my house, wash my clothes, cook and just do what I tell her to do.”
