(NationalSentinel) When you read things on the Internet that are not from trusted sources, you always have to take what you see with a grain of salt. But sometimes the narrative just ‘fits’ and it’s worth a second and third look.
Following a vicious attack on right-leaning gayÂ Quillette journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Ore., on Saturday while covering the city’s latest antifa crime fest (er, sorry…’demonstration’), another alleged supporter of the group is threatening (online) to use acid when attacking conservatives at a speech rally in Washington, D.C., this coming weekend.
BigÂ League Politics reports:
A person utilizing artwork created by aÂ Rolling StoneÂ journalist who writes favorably about Antifa has threatened to attack attendees of the Demand Free Speech rallyÂ with â€œmuriatic acid, wax, and balloonsâ€ on July 6 in Washington, D.C.
The threats were made on a popular right wing Telegram channel. A user with the name â€œPOUND ON YOUR BOYâ€ made several threats against the rally, prompting co-organizer Enrique Tarrio to contact the FBI and DHS, who are now planning to provide additional security to the event.
Over the course of about 10 minutes last night, the â€œPOUND ON YOUR BOYâ€ account asked how the D.C. event is â€œcoming alongâ€, and referenced muriatic acid multiple times.
â€œI just want to toss as many balloons of Muriatic acid in the faces as many Proud Boys I can [sic]â€, wrote the user, â€œI just want to blind as many of you c**k suckers are possible [sic].â€
Oh, the Left-wing ‘tolerance’ and ‘compassion.’
The user continued making threats and concluded his thread with, â€œWe already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons.â€
What makes the threat especially onerous, according to Tarrio, is the use of the wax. At present, muriatic acid is available at just about any pool or home improvement store, and it’s already dangerous on its own, being able to cause minor burns.
However, it can be washed off quickly with water. But when combined with wax, it immediately forms a film like candle wax and clings to the injured person’s skin. Tarrio says that could cause a deeper burn on the skin and has the ability for the acid to get into a victim’s bloodstream, causing a cardiac arrest.
â€œIt starts with milkshakes, then it escalates to what happened to Andy Ngo, and now theyâ€™re threatening us with acid attacks,â€ Tarrio toldÂ Big League Politics. â€œAll because we want to defend free speech in Washington, D.C.â€
“We will not be intimidated with these tactics of fear and fascism. We will celebrate our First Amendment without apology,” he continued.
The news site noted further:
While researching the â€œPOUND ON YOUR BOYâ€ name and cartoon profile photo associated with the Telegram account,Â Big League PoliticsÂ was able to identify Twitter and Instagram accounts with the same phrase and artwork.
The artwork and phrase were created by Fagan Kuhnmuench, aÂ Rolling StoneÂ andÂ PlayboyÂ journalist who repeatedly writes articles and social media postsÂ sympathetic of Antifa.
Kuhnmuench was contacted byÂ Big League Politics and said that the account associated with his artwork is not his — that he’s not on the platform. He didn’t provide any commentary about his artwork being used to threaten violence.
