First up: Loony “progressive” tries to stab a Republican candidate…
A Castro Valley man was arrested after he tried to stab congressional candidate Rudy Peters with a switchblade knife after approaching a booth at a public festival and making “disparaging remarks” about Republicans, authorities said Tuesday.
Farzad Fazeli, 35, was booked into Santa Rita Jail in Dublin after Sunday’s alleged attack at the Castro Valley Fall Festival on suspicion of felony assault, making criminal threats, brandishing a weapon and possessing a switchblade.
Alameda County sheriff’s deputies were called to the event on Castro Valley Boulevard about 3:45 p.m. after a report of a knife attack, officials said. Witnesses told deputies that Fazeli approached Peters in an “aggressive manner” and insulted Peters’ political party and some elected officials, a sheriff’s spokesman said.
Fazeli allegedly pulled out a switchblade and tried to stab Peters, but the knife malfunctioned. Peters and Fazeli then got into a “physical struggle” before Fazeli fled the scene, officials said. He was detained a short time later.
Santa Rita Jail records listed Fazeli as a cashier standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 210 pounds.
Peters is a Republican running to unseat Rep. Eric Swallwell, D-Dublin, in the 15th Congressional District of California, which is mostly in eastern Alameda County. Peters is a supporter of President Donald Trump and his website features Trump’s slogan MAGA, for Make America Great Again.
Then Democrats in D.C. set out to prove that they are just as violent and stupid as they are in California (on 9-11)…
Police have responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up a meeting there supporting President Donald Trump.
The threat was made ahead of the planned Tuesday evening event by an anonymous Twitter account that supports the Democratic Socialists, a far-left political group.
‘I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,’ the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan ‘Make American Great Again’.
The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, adding that no further details were immediately available.
On Tuesday evening, MPD vehicles were spotted outside of the hotel.
A hotel manager confirmed that staff were aware of the threat and taking appropriate security measures.
