American anti-Semite threatens to kill Bernie Sanders

This 27 August 2019 video from the USA about the presidential election is called Bernie Sanders’ Sudden Surge Utterly SHOCKS Pundits on MSNBC.

From Reuters news agency in the USA:

August 23, 2019

A Florida man was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Friday for threatening to behead U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, federal prosecutors said.

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.

  1. At this point, most of the candidates in the primary have shared their plans to fight climate change.

    Some believe we can find “middle ground” with Republicans and fossil fuel companies on the issue. Others take steps in the right direction, but don’t go far enough.

    And then there’s Bernie Sanders.

    “The biggest, boldest and most ambitious plan.” — “Simply what must be done to meet the challenge” — “This is what it means to treat the climate crisis like a true emergency.”

    Many have endorsed Bernie Sanders’ plan to fight climate change, but now we need you:

    Sign our petition: Tell the other candidates in this race you support Bernie Sanders’ plan to fight climate change. Send a message that we need a plan that meets this crisis. They’ll hear you.


    Bernie Sanders was one of the first to lead on issues like a $15 minimum wage, Medicare for All and free college. Others followed.

    And they followed because of you.

    Now we have to do the same on the existential threat of climate change.

    Add your name: tell the other candidates in this race you support Bernie’s plan — and they should too:

    Thanks for making your voice heard. This is important. Especially before the climate forum coming up.

    All my best,

    Faiz Shakir
    Campaign Manager
