Radical left threatens to kill House candidate, declares ‘open season’ on Vermont Republicans

DEATH THREAT: “My comrades will kill you and the Constitution. … Open season for Republican death in Vermont.”

COLCHESTER, Vt. — A Republican House candidate on Saturday received a terrifying death threat in the mail that said “socialism is here” and declared “open season for Republican death in Vermont.”

Deserae Morin, who is running for office in the Chittenden 9-1 district, says she opened her mail in the morning and saw a message spelled out in cut-out print letters, including letters cut out from her own campaign materials.

The message, which looks like a collage of various newspaper clippings, sent a chilling warning to Morin and other Republicans:

C—, we are hunting you. My comrades will kill you and the Constitution. First, we will rape you for days. You will scream and know that agonizing horror. No equal rights for Republicans. Socialism is here. Open season for Republican death in Vermont. Fear our revolution. It’s time. AA

Morin told True North in an interview that she alerted local police and sent the message to the media.

“I want people to know this is what’s happening,” she said. “It’s happening all over, it’s happening everywhere. … [But] I didn’t expect to see this happen here.”

NOT A VICTIM: House candidate Deserae Morin says while she’s taking the death threat seriously, her campaign will go forward with even greater determination.

Morin said the threat needs to be taken seriously by anyone in the GOP.

“In the letter, it threatens all Republicans, it’s not just me,” she said.

Morin, 32, who is running for office for the first time, describes herself as a pro-constitutionalist, limited government, pro-individual-freedom type of candidate. She said that makes her “the opposite of socialism.”

The plain white envelope in which the letter was sent included no return address or personal handwriting that could be analyzed by investigators. The fact that the message contains some letters clipped from her campaign materials makes Morin think the author might be someone local.

Morin said she received some hostile reactions while knocking on doors, and wonders if she may have met the sender while out campaigning. She added that she also thinks the letter may be linked to a domestic terror group like Antifa, which threatens political violence while hiding behind anonymity.

The threat comes as top leaders within the Democratic Party this week called for open hostility toward Republicans. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,” former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in a sit-down interview.

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, speaking about Republicans while campaigning for Democrats in Georgia, said, “When they go low, we kick them.” The GOP on Thursday tweeted a video montage exposing Democrat calls for aggression.

Morin said she thinks the letter was probably more about intimidation than physical violence. However, with a husband and children around, she said it’s important for police to get involved.

FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF: Morin says she has to think about her family’s safety and may seek additional protection from veterans.

Ultimately, she said she wants to keep moving ahead in her quest to promote her platform of more freedom for Vermonters.

“I’m a young female who is very pro-Constitution, pro-liberty … [and] I’m very strong on gun rights, because of things like this,” she said. “I’ve experienced assault before and I don’t ever want to be a victim.

“I destroy their narrative because I’m not in their mold. I’ve talked to the other candidates, the candidates that are men, that are white and over 50 — nobody hassles them for being Republican, they just expect it. But when I go door-knocking, at least once a day I have somebody who just wants to rip my head off.”

Regarding her campaign, she said she is for expanding school choice, promoting a direct primary care system between doctors and patients that eliminates the health insurance middleman, and protecting Vermonters’ rights.

She reiterated that while she will still be out campaigning, she expects to beef up security efforts and seek support from the military veteran community.

  1. Typical lefty move. Some self professed ‘man’ threatens a lady, and think’s he’s cool. I sincerely hope that this buttercup is caught and exposed for the coward he is. I’d love to have a little private meeting with him and discuss this with him. Just give me about 10 minutes in a room alone with him or it. And I’d encourage any vets that would like to help with the discussion to join in. Just someone bring a therapy puppy for him to cry with.

  2. Year in and year out, these kinds of people get elected. The liberal left flat landers control the state. Will Vermonters ever rise up and say “ENOUGH” at the ballot box in November??? Unfortunately, don’t get your hopes up.

  3. It continues. Hillary says there can be no civility until you get to control the Republicans in congress. Eric Holder says kick them when you don’t like what they do or say or do.
    Trump hit it on the head. These are mobsters who don’t believe in addressing their dislikes at the ballot box. They subscribe to violence, the need to get in every Republicans face, shout them down, drive them out of restaurants, kick their cars (Portland OR), etc. They destroy our history by tearing down statues, damaging historic sites, etc. They say that is all okay because conservatives are stupid and need to be controlled. Conservatives just aren’t smart enough to think for themselves.
    In the recent Kavanaugh hearings you saw the left at their worst. Senator Leahy was an embarrassment. They don’t care about facts or evidence. It is their way or the highway.
    This is beginning to sound like Nazi Germany where people who didn’t like their neighbor called the authorities and “passed on” damming information and that was often the last anyone heard of the neighbor or even whole families. If the left gets back in power in Washington, hang on folks. If you thought the Obama IRS scandal that targeted conservatives, i.e. the Tea Party, and the DNC paying to have a phony dossier compiled to eliminate Donald Trump, that a corrupt FBI and DOJ were outrageous, realize that you haven’t seen anything if the Dems get back in control.
    The first priority in November should be for Vermonters to vote out our leftest/socialistic Washington congressional minions. Their agenda does not support the average working citizen who pays taxes and contributes daily to our great country. They support illegal immigration, open borders, free college, free medical and you name it, all while they have become millionaires on the taxpayers dime. Scandalous is to soft a term to describe them.

    • “The first priority in November should be for Vermonters to vote out our leftest/socialistic Washington congressional minions. ”

      Sage advice in D.C. and Vermont,the statehouse is in need of a drastic change in the peoples representation,remember to Vote in November.

  4. In all my life of being a 7th generation Vermonter, I’ve never seen such violence in Vt… Seen all these out of staters started taking over the state has sunk to a new low. Vermont was never a racist state. We have always been a great state. Now we have all the socialist loving fools here. Deserae Morin, has every right to be concerned. What you are doing Deserae Morin, you are a good example of a true Vermonter. Keep fighting the fight.!!!
    Be interesting if WCAX will report on this and what the 3 democrat politicians will have to say about this threat or just shrug it off like everything else.. My guess this letter came from a Socialist Sanders supporter… Sanders is violent always telling his supporters to FIGHT.

    • No,not the Burnmeister,he’s supposed to be the warm and cuddly Commie.

      I say BurnMeister because if given a national office beyond his current he will Burn Americans.
      The term Meister meaning,The German word Burgermeister often spelled in English as Burgomaster or Burgomeister means master of the citizens.

      A Burgermeister is chairman of the executive council (or cabinet) in many towns and cities in Germany. In France, the person is called a maire. In the Netherlands the person is called the burgemeester. The title is usually translated into English as Mayor, but the position of mayor is not quite the same as the Burgermeister.

  5. That doesn’t mean the glue is still wet, just that there’s too much glue. No Elmer’s in special ed?

    • It looks a lot like White Out to me. I have lived through 11 presidents and never have I ever seen such sheer hatred and evil in politics as I am now!!! I would swear that ALL politicians are going through their 2nd childhood except these “kids” have never been disciplined. I PRAY TO GOD THAT THE DEMOCRATS DO NOT STEAL AMERICA BACK!!! IF THEY DO YOU CAN KISS OUR AMERICA AND OUR FREEDOMS GOODBYE

      • I have the same reaction to these threats and violence. It is like a child acting out. They resent any laws because enforcing laws requires discipline. They have zero capability of resolving conflict except trying to destroy whoever is arguing with them. It looks like an oppositional defiance disorder. There is no reasoning with them. They just need to be stopped before they really hurt someone.

  6. Why does the glue still look wet? Why is the paper still showing moisture penetration around the words? Did the alleged threatener come to her house, cut it out and glue it in person, and then hand it to her before it had a chance to dry?

    I am all for advancing the conservative cause, but this kind of game sets us back significantly.

  7. Just look at the picture. The glue was still wet. This woman faked a death threat against herself, posted it online, and notified the rightwing media.

    Turn it over to the FBI and see just how hard they laugh at you when the arrest you for faking this.

  8. Shouldn’t this say “A Republican House candidate ” CLAIMS they were sent this letter? This is the fakest thing I’ve ever seen.

    • I bet if it was a democrat that made this claim, you’d be screaming at the top of your lungs.
      You’ll believe anything a socialist says but if it’s a republican, it has to be a lie. Wake up

      • Raoul P you got that right . Liberals would be howling at the sky. Amazing how these liberals can tell by a picture that the glue is still wet. IDIOTS

  9. So give it to the police and let them investigate it. If it’s real, there’s a nutcase on the loose and they need to be caught.
    If it’s fake, there’s a nutcase running for office.

  10. A letter like that would cause understandable fear and indignation. However, it is wise not to take the source at face value. At least not at first.

    The Wikipedia entry discussion the 1933 Reichstag Fire reads:

    “After the fire, the Reichstag Fire Decree was passed. The Nazi Party used the fire as evidence that communists were plotting against the German government, and the event is considered pivotal in the establishment of Nazi Germany. The term Reichstag fire has come to refer to false flag actions perpetrated or facilitated by an authority to promote their own interests through popular approval of retribution or retraction of civil rights.”

    I know many progressives and liberals, none of whom would write or condone that kind of letter. Whoever wrote/sent the letter is not just a felon, but outside of the norms of civil and political discourse. Taking the letter at face value as representing the will of those with a set of legitimate political beliefs would be a mistake, until such attribution could be positively established.

    • Charles I appreciate and admire your well-stated and well-reasoned remarks. Your last sentence brings immediately to mind Joe Biden calling 63 million Trump voters the “dregs of society.” Attribution of despicable values and character is a blood sport of the “leaders” of the left and is visited without hesitation on anyone with viewpoints different than people like Hillary, Joe, and the fake news peddling media. Just take a look at how the left wing establishment is subjecting Kanye West to the most vile treatment for his audacity to support the President. Your point not to engage in such attribution is good advice. I hope you are sharing it with people who really need it.

  11. It is quite possible that the creator of this letter (if it is real) is not a “leftist socialist” and is instead just someone trying to paint the left as being a violent mob. Perhaps it was a political opponent of the recipient. Regardless, it is a sad day when this is the type of thing candidates for office can come to expect.

    It is also worth noting that if Kiah Morris received a similar letter or death threat it would likely be written off by TNR and their readers as not a legitimate concern. Seems like hypocrisy has become the norm on both sides of the political aisle.

    • Assault, including the verbal variety, is criminal. Why aren’t the people, and especially the politicians, who make specific violent threats being arrested and prosecuted? The political speech, oral or written, being made by Liberal tyrants is not protected speech.

    • One only need to look at Portland,OR to now that this is real. So much of the US has been indoctrinated from K-12 and in college to embrace socialism and reject what built this country,
      These people are going to push and push until they get the war that they want, this isn’t going to stop and will not end well for them.

    • Lots of big renewable energy folks lining their pockets via the votes of the liberals. The violent democrats can’t do anything wrong in the eyes of these people….Right Mr Davis?!

  12. A very interesting thing will be this, how many papers and news organizations within Vermont will cover this story in any depth?

    Sometimes it’s what is not said that is most important.

    Thanks to True North for the report, we doubt others will cover. What will they say when they do cover?

  13. I do wonder when the second shot heard around the world will take place. The Democrats have completely lost their common sense. The person who sent this letter needs to be located and charged.
    Even my local Rep. said she would like to tear off the heads of “Trumpers”

  14. Sanders and Leahy (and those who vote for them, i.e. your neighbors) are aiding and abetting this mentality. We’ll see if they condemn it or adhere to the various violent mantras being pushed by the national democratic leadership that encourage and threaten bodily harm against anyone who disagrees with them.

  15. Thank you Deserae, although no one would want to receive a threat like this you can wear it as a badge of honor. Perhaps others should ask themselves if they are being bold enough to proclaim the truth about freedom or are they “being careful” and “waiting” for the right moment to express themselves.

  16. These leftist fools, yes we let them in our state and this is what we get – idle threats against this candidate. I hope they catch this fool and punish them to the full extent of the law. Coward.

    If you watch these fools on the news, they hide their faces and just scream & shout and run and hide. They act like spoiled kids.

    So if they start their BS here, they’ll understand something about Vermont and they’re not
    going to like it!

    Deserae Morin, be vigilant!

  17. I like “you will scream and know that agonizing horror” I think it somehow implies that she does not know this kind of pain as much as they expect her to; it seems like a reference to the kavanaugh case, where all these morons didn’t question for a second that christine ford might have wrongly accuse him; it means they are still on this “you confirmed a rapist to the supreme court” not only do they refuse evidences that he’s not a rapist, but they are becoming very violent about it day after day. I wonder who pushes them further and further down this path. maybe someone called georges soros with the benediction of the democrats. “the revolution” HA! more like a coup d’etat.

  18. There really is a war going on in this country, propelled by idiots like our own congressional delegation. I would expect to see a lot of concealed weapon permits being issued in this state because people are going to need them.

  19. The tolerant warm and fuzzy left are neither,the militant among them,well a prime example would be the congressional ball game attacker.
    Then in the past have represented Jim Crow and the home of the KKK,yet try to sell the thought that their opposition are the Ist’s and Ic’s,racists,misogynists,homophobic,islamophobic.

    Hopefully the American public can see through the lies and distortions for what they are Un American,they want the destruction of a Constitutional Republic for their substitution of a Marxist based system. Make sure to vote and let your voice be heard.
