I’m seeing the government do things I’ve never seen in my 40+ years of broadcasting. People have mailed credible threats to presidents for years. They’ve (rightly) been investigated for it, but I’ve never seen the FBI gun anybody down for it. Ever. This is not normal.— Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) August 10, 2023
Every last person local Utah newspapers have interviewed about this man is mystified that the FBI could have possibly perceived him as a genuine threat pic.twitter.com/oQIQehqKIj— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) August 10, 2023
Here is a photo of Craig Robertson in Provo, a carpenter, who had recently organized a group of volunteers to build a ramp for a disabled neighbor pic.twitter.com/CJjryrRgOU— Jack Poso ?? (@JackPosobiec) August 10, 2023
Who was Craig Robertson?
- A Boomer with far right politics
- A fed poster on Facebook
- A gun enthusiast and collector
- An elderly, obese man in poor health who walked with a cane
- A nice guy who was well liked and respected in his community
I’ve met countless people like that over the years in rightwing politics. With few exceptions, they are harmless. They are why I moderate the comment section and mostly for their own sake.
Note: The obvious exception was Glenn Miller. I never met him, but dismissed him as an alcoholic blowhard.
