From Reuters news agency in the USA:

The man, 58-year-old Robert Pratersch of Kissimmee, in September 2018 left three voicemail messages at Sanders’ Vermont office where he made anti-Semitic threats and threatened to kill Sanders by beheading him in an “ISIS-style” video.
Pratersch was convicted in April of threatening a federal official and making threats over interstate communications media in April. He could have been sentenced to as much as 15 years in prison.
Somehow, I have a feeling that if Mr Pratersch of Kissimmee would have been black and/or a Muslim, then he might have gotten 15 years imprisonment instead of 15 months, like now.
In Donald Trump’s USA, the government does nor really consider white nationalist terrorism to be terrorism. And as for the homophobia in the death threat tweets by Mr Pratersch of Kissimmee, the Trump administration is hardly blameless itself.
Anti-Semitic graffiti was painted on the exterior walls of a synagogue in Connecticut. The graffiti on the Congregation Adath Israel synagogue building in Newtown was discovered at 7:30 Saturday morning: here.
