Portland state rep threatens Trump

PORTLAND, Maine — State Rep. Scott Hamann, D-South Portland, has said he regrets a Facebook rant in which he seemed to imply he would harm President Donald Trump if given the chance.

“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p—-y,” Hamann wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.

A screenshot of the post, in which Hamann writes that Trump was “installed by the Russians” and seethes against the president, his supporters and Republicans more generally, was widely circulated on social media beginning Tuesday evening.

Maine state rep suggests in Facebook rant he would harm Trump

Typical seething, hate-filled lefty.

Threatening the President of

Threatening the President of the United States is a class E felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871.[1][2][3] It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making "any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States". This also includes presidential candidates and former Presidents. The United States Secret Service investigates suspected violations of this law and monitors those who have a history of threatening the President. Threatening the President is considered a political offense.[4] Immigrants who commit this crime can be deported.[5]

Because the offense consists of pure speech, the courts have issued rulings attempting to balance the government's interest in protecting the President with free speech rights under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. According to the book Stalking, Threatening, and Attacking Public Figures, "Hundreds of celebrity howlers threaten the President of the United States every year, sometimes because they disagree with his policies, but more often just because he is the President.[6]

He is a scum democrat

He is a scum democrat (redundant, I know) and should be kicked out of the State legislature. If he gets away with this then the door is fully opened for worse.

I sent this to his official website. I know it won't work but it felt good to call him out.

You are repugnant scum. Do the right thing and resign. Nobody, let alone a legislator has the right to use such foul language and death threats to the President of the United States.

Hi email is: Scott.Hamann@legislature.maine.gov

I intend to write all of the legislators demanding that they impeach, censure or otherwise dump this human virus.

Wasn't there a GOP legislator

Wasn't there a GOP legislator who was made to resign after some Facebook comments? I think his name was Willette, but I'm not sure.

I don't think it was for making a threat of this magnitude.

It's always investigated, no matter how trivial. If it were a crime, Trump would be charged when he suggested that people shoot Hillary

America has a long history of free speech and there is no reason to consider his flippant remark as a threat to the president, after all Trump is just a big fat White guy, now if someone had said similar about Obama, he would be a racist, or if about Hiliary, a misogynist, but a big dumb white guy deserves to be threatened just like the little twerp Hamann does. If I ever get within 10 feet of that little twerp...... See it means nothing.

Matt you know full well that if anything like what this sh*t for brains said about Trump was said to the skinny black guy who was President, it would have been an international issue and the Liberals would demand jail or execution.

And this just in.

House speaker boots state rep from committees for anti-Trump rant

"Speaker of the House Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, said she has removed Hamann from his seats on the Health and Human Services Committee and the Marijuana Legalization Implementation Committee.

In a statement, Gideon said the three-term lawmaker’s comments were “inexcusable and unacceptable” and said his removal from the committees should stand as a lesson to other members of state government.

“I hope this consequence sends a clear signal to all members of the House of Representatives that they are expected to conduct themselves with respect at all times and in all media,” Gideon said."

Uggh people are so dumb. In this day and age, *everyone* should know that any kind of written or verbal threat against the POTUS is always taken seriously. Good to see this dumbass taken down, I hope it serves as a lesson to everyone else.

UPDATE:

UPDATE:

It should be added that Gideon did not withhold Hamann's pay when she removed him from the two committees.

Is this right? Being paid to do no work in the Legislature?

What say you, folks?

What Bluejay said, Mr. Udall.

What Bluejay said, Mr. Udall. From the link:

" . . So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well -- do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?  Of course I do.   These aren’t those times.  This is war.  And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting  without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care.  I can’t spare this man.  He fights."

So some think Trump is not

So some think Trump is not "presidential". Was Clinton "presidential" when he was in the oval office with his pants down around his ankles?
Do we need to take "open disclosure" lessons from Hillary ?

If you are a "Dem' " Representative; remind yourself that the "Dem's " lost 900 seats nation wide.
Focus on Maine if that is your job.

There is much more to the

There is much more to the depravity of Hamann than we have seen. He is a pro Hamas operative and a real douche-bag of the highest order. He was arrested by the Israelis for trying assist Hamas against Israel. It is not surprising I guess that Portland elected this scum. This is from the GOP:

What do the Maine Legislature and the well-known Middle Eastern terrorist group Hamas have in common?

Rep. Scott Hamann has spent long nights with both.

In 2010, the Maine media covered the story of a Mainer taken into custody by Israel for his participation in an effort to break through an Israeli blockade of Gaza which was in place to prevent Hamas from acquiring weapons that could be used in terrorist attacks on the people of Israel.

The Mainer taken into custody was none other than Scott Hamann.

Rep. Hamann defends his presence as a well-intended effort to deliver humanitarian aide to a region in need of supplies, but that is not the full truth:

Rep. Hamann was “hired” to film the efforts of IHH and the Free Gaza Movement in breaking a blockade that had been put in place by Israel to prevent terrorists in Gaza from acquiring more weapons. (Bangor Daily News 6/1/2010, "Hired" https://bangordailynews.com/2010/06/01/news/maine-filmmaker-detained-aft...)

Rep. Hamann was on a ship whose only real “cargo” was leaders of the movement behind the blockade breaking attempt, a group known as the IHH, which has been widely reported on by the media as having ties with terror groups Hamas and al-Qaida.

(Hamann public statement on "cargo" is in video link at bottom)

(NBC News: IHH had terror ties http://www.nbcnews.com/id/37477182/ns/world_news-europe/t/turkish-aid-gr... )

(IHH lauds new Hamas terror group, Jerusalem Post, 8/16/2010 http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/IHH-lauds-new-Hamas-terror-group )

(In 2010, bipartisan group of 87 members of the United States Congress, including Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. John Kyl requested IHH be designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization http://thehill.com/images/stories/news/2010/PDFs/reidmcconnellisraellett... )

Statements made by Hamann's family and himself after the fact demonstrate that Hamann was not merely hired as an impartial “filmmaker” but that he was a true believer in the cause.

(Associated Press, 6/2/2010 "Hamann was documenting the event as a job, but also felt strongly about the purpose of the flotilla, Stuart said.")

One key statement, where Hamann, on film in his own words, identifies and praises a key FGM/IHH organizer who he describes spending a long night with, and says is “very good” solidifies Hamann's position.

In video, Hamann identified Huwaida Arraf as one of the five leaders he spent time with at sea.

Arraf is known to be a Hamas-connected operative, who penned a 2002 op-ed in the Palestinian Chronicle defending Hamas' violence and who was a central figure in defending the terrorists in the Church of the Nativity.

(Palestinian Chronicle, Huwaida Arraf, 1/29/2002:

"In actuality, nonviolence is not enough... The Palestinian resistance must take on a variety of characteristics, - both nonviolence and violent. But most importantly it must develop a strategy involving both aspects. No other successful nonviolent movement was able to achieve what it did without a concurrent violence movement.")

(Washington Post 4/21/2015 Is the International Solidarity Movement “pro-terrorist”? A response to Huwaida Arraf:

"Back in the ISM’s early days, during the second intifada, just a short time after Yasser Arafat had responded to Ehud Barak’s offer to “end the occupation” by initiating a war of terror against Israel, ISM activists tried to thwart Israeli military operations against terrorists, most famously by joining Arafat and his terrorist compatriots in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem during Israel’s siege in 2002.")

Video of Hamann confirming his work with Arraf and statement about here can be found here: https://youtu.be/aEd9-Fd_bL4

Photo of Hamann from PPH in custody of Israeli Navy is below.

The Maine State House

The Maine State House Majority Office then released Hamann’s apology statement.

“While the tone of the post was born out of frustration with the vile language currently surrounding politics, I should not have responded with the same language,” Hamman said in a statement. “This is not language I typically use, it does not reflect my personal values, and while misguided, it was intended to make a visceral point about the developing political discourse in America.”

That is not an apology...it is an explanation absent any remorse.
https://bangordailynews.com/2017/07/12/politics/maine-state-rep-suggests...

On Tuesday night, Hanson, who hosts shows on FOX News affiliate radio stations WNTK in New Hampshire and WUVR in Vermont reached out to Hamann and Good Shepherd Food Bank over Facebook regarding the posts.

The Good Shepherd Food Bank, where Hamann works as project manager, distanced itself from his statements in its own Facebook post Tuesday night, but did not respond to requests for comment.

Hamann’s statement “is a direct violation of our organization’s social media policy,” a post from the anti-hunger group states. “The views and opinions expressed by this employee are his own, and in no way reflect the views of Good Shepherd Food Bank.”
Hamann responded by saying he would pursue legal action against the radio host if the statements hurt his career, according to screenshots of their conversation provided by Hanson.

“And if anything negative comes from your attack on my employment, my attorney will be in touch,” Hamann wrote. “Cease and desist.”

The toothpaste is out of the tube Scotty....and it cant be put back in. Your rant serves as a model for your Democratic party and needs to be illuminated....

Do not turn your back on a liberal democrat....do not drop your guard. You do so at your own personal risk. They are not to be trusted.
