A death threat to those who would attempt physical contact without her permission.
Or she doesn't against all of the evidence and even Gianforte's own admission, and hence has a very warped reality where journalists are bad guys to be dealt with force.
That's an assumption that I do not see evidence for present.
In which case is still a threat, because in her own mind Jacobs was deserving to be dealt with violently anyways.
Are you a mind reader now?
Now you're just being flat out stupid. I split it up into the two possible cases: the story that Jacobs didn't approach or touch Gianforte (per eye witness accounts, audio recording, and Gianforte's own admission), or one where he did. And I showed in either way, she's a dangerous psycho.
But that's not the real problem. The real problem is that the GOP puts these people into power because that's what their base wants. Because this sick thuggish behavior what they - and you - will excuse and defend. And they still keep getting re-elected and voted in, with warm welcomes at their rallies.
Because they're doing the dirty work their base doesn't want to publicly admit to wanting to be done. That's why they fanatically defend them beyond any degree of reason.
It's "pea-can", man.
