A Republican woman running for the Vermont state legislature shared on Facebook a death threat the candidate said she received from a self-proclaimed socialist who said they would first “rape you for days.”
“I’ve received my first official death threat, also rape threat,” she wrote. “And a threat to all Vermont Republicans,” wrote Deserae Morin in the caption accompanying the ominous letter.
“C*nt, we are hunting you. My comrades will kill you and the Constitution,” the letter said, using cut out letters and words. “First, we will rape you for days. You will scream and know that agonizing horror. No equal rights for republicans. Socialism is here. Open season for Republican death in Vermont. Fear our revolution. AA. It’s time.”
Morin told The Daily Caller that the threat, which she said she never expected, equates to fascism.
“I’m really not surprised by the letter, considering everything that is happening in our country right now,” Morin said. “We see calls for aggressiveness from prominent Democrats and acts of radical leftist violence happening regularly and with increasing intensity. But I will admit that I never expected this to happen to me.”
“For me this is about Liberty vs Totalitarianism,” she continued. “This is fascism in action, subscribe to my ideology or face violence.”
Morin said she was especially concerned that the perpetrator was a local because her own campaign materials were used on the envelope.
“That’s the part that bothers me the most,” she stressed. “That’s the main reason why I am taking this so seriously and working with the police and the post office. It feels very real and menacing when you know the threat is so close.”
The Vermont State Police are reportedly investigating the threat against Morin.
But those on the left who embraced the “We Believe Survivors” campaign during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process were not as trusting of a Republican woman, as seen in a quick screen shot of her Facebook post.
