Several state capitols from around the United States were evacuated on Wednesday after a series of bomb threats were made, which no doubt will become fodder for new false narratives that will attempt to connect these very threats to the mythical beast known as “right-wing terrorism” as a means of making everyone who supports former President Donald Trump into some type of terrorist. It’s very convenient we’re a month out from primary elections kicking off and this sort of stuff starts happening.
Especially in light of the fiasco that unfolded in December of 2023 concerning the removal of Trump from the GOP primary ballot in Colorado and Maine. Both states have temporarily reinstated him to the ballot while he and his campaign appeals the two decisions. This provides left-wing media with everything they need to press the narrative in the mainstream media.
Check out more details from the Daily Caller:
Officials working in the state capitols of Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Connecticut, Michigan and Montana were evacuated from their buildings or went into lockdown after receiving bomb threats, The Hill reported. Authorities have not immediately found explosives or other incendiary devices at any of the respective locations.
“There have been multiple bomb threats to state capitols around the nation,” Georgia election official Gabriel Sterling went on to say on X/Twitter Wednesday. “Do not jump to conclusions as to who is responsible. There will be chaos agents sowing discord for 2024. They want to increase tensions. Don’t let them.”
While everyone is safe, KSP has asked everyone to evacuate the state Capitol and is investigating a threat received by the Secretary of State’s Office. We are aware of similar threats made to other offices across the country. 1/2

The threats were first received by secretaries of state across the U.S. in a mass email sent Wednesday morning, according to The Hill. It isn’t clear who sent the emails or how the threats are connected.
The Kentucky state capitol was evacuated after receiving the threat just as lawmakers were convening in the complex’s annex for a training seminar, according to The Associated Press. The Mississippi state capitol went into lockdown after receiving threats until it was deemed safe to resume normal operations.
The state capitols of Connecticut, Montana, and Georgia were all evacuated, though reopened not long after law enforcement officials were able to conduct investigations and determined everything was safe and secure. The state capitol in Michigan was also evacuated and declared to be safe following an investigation into threats made to it.
There were no explosive devices found at any of the locations, thankfully, so no one was harmed. However, resources were wasted, such as taxpayer dollars, to carry out against these incredibly unfunny pranks. What’s more, these incidents follow on the heels of “swatting” incidents against Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Gree, GOP Rep. Brandon Williams from Ohio, and Sen. Rick Scott, a Florida Republican.
For those who aren’t familiar with the practice, “swatting” is when a person contacts law enforcement authorities and falsely claims an emergency or crime is happening, hoping to provoke the police into sending the SWAT team out to investigate at the person’s residence. The victim is usually totally unaware of what is happening. These incidents are dangerous and have led to several individual being injured and a few even killed.
