A California man who issued a threat to kill Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida found out his fate this week, and, as usual, it’s not much more than a slap on the wrist.
This kind of twisted up justice system our country has right now is ruining the faith and trust of the American people. It wouldn’t be so bad if things were applied evenly across the board, but they aren’t.
For example, look at the sentences for some of the folks involved in the Jan. 6 incident who are having the book thrown at them for just meandering into the building without actually doing anything.
That’s not what’s happening to antifa thugs who have been known to throw milkshakes made out of concrete at people’s heads.
Nor is that what’s going down with Eugene Huelsman, 59, who pleaded guilty back in October to a felony charge of leaving a threatening voicemail at the district office for Gaetz, which is located in Pensacola, Florida.
Huelsman, according to a report from Just The News, was sentenced by a federal judge Thursday to 6 months of house arrest.
“On Thursday, U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell II, sentenced Huelsman, according to court records obtained by Politico. The judge also reportedly ordered Huelsman to serve five years of probation and pay a $10,000 fine,” the report said.
“Tell [Gaetz] to watch his back, tell him to watch his children,” Huelsman went on to say in the message, which was left for Gaetz on Jan. 9, 2021, just three days after the Capitol riot. “I’m coming for him … I’m gonna f—ing kill him. …”
Prior to this incident, Huelsman worked in the entertainment industry in Hollywood as a camera operator.
An attorney representing Huelsman stated the voicemail left by his client was just pure, raw emotion being poured out on Gaetz in the aftermath of the situation at the Capitol.
“The timing of it is exactly why he did it,” the attorney explained to Politico.
Well, here’s the problem. Liberals have a very well-established reputation for being overly emotional about pretty much everything. This is why they always shoot off their mouths on Twitter and say ridiculous things that end up drawing a lot of negative attention.
They don’t stop to think through the things they say. Instead, they just react. Which, by the way, is a horrible, horrible idea. Actor Will Smith has had his career completely tarnished due to just giving into emotion and reacting to comedian Chris Rock’s joke about his wife.
Emotions aren’t bad, but being controlled by them is, which is a lesson radical progressives have yet to learn.
That being said, as mentioned earlier in the piece, if you’re going to throw the book at folks over the Jan. 6 riot, you need to do the same to people in antifa who destroy property and beat people up for holding a different opinion than they do.
For a group of individuals who seemingly pride themselves on fighting for fairness, they sure don’t exhibit much of it, do they?
