J.D. Vance Won’t Be Getting A Vote From Ricky Walter Shiffer In November
J-6 insurrectionist Ricky Walter Shiffer, armed and wearing body armor, tried breaking into the Cincinnati area FBI office in Kenwood this morning around 9 AM. The 42 year old white man was shot and killed late in the afternoon after he fled to Clinton County and hid in a corn field, exchanging fire with police. Police are investigating his connect to the Proud Boys.
Apocalyptic raving by far right Republican politicians like Marjorie Traitor Greene (Q-GA), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is all the encouragement deranged, paranoid extremists need to start shooting at the FBI. NBC New reported this evening that Shiffer posted threatening screeds about killing FBI agents after Republican politicians began disseminating lies about the FBI visit to Mar-a-Lago on Monday.
On Truth Social, a social media platform founded by Trump’s media company, Trump Media & Technology Group, Shiffer appeared to have posted a message detailing his failed attempt to gain entry to the FBI building.
“Well, I thought I had a way through bullet proof glass, and I didn’t. If you don’t hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it’ll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops while,” the account @RickyWShifferJr wrote at 9:29 a.m. ET, shortly after police allege the shooting occured.
Shiffer posted to Truth Social multiple times in the days after the FBI searched Trump’s residence about wanting to engage in violence. One post called for people to arm themselves and be ready for “combat.”
“We must not tolerate this one,” he wrote.
After another user responded that his photo and information had been forwarded to the FBI, Shiffer’s account responded: “Bring them on.”
In response to another user asking if Shiffer was advocating for terrorism, Shiffer’s account responded that users should kill FBI agents “on sight” and also target a vague list of enemies who try to stop the slayings.
In reply to another user on Tuesday, Shiffer responded, “You’re a fool if you think there’s a nonviolent solution.”
On May 7, Shiffer replied to a post by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green on Twitter, in which she wrote, “I know they are trying 1984, but I’m feeling 2016 vibes.”
“Congresswoman Greene, they got away with fixing elections in plain sight,” Shiffer wrote. “It’s over. The next step is the one we used in 1775.”
On the same day, responding to a post by Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter imploring users to “Get ready” because “the midterm variant (of COVID-19) is coming and it’s going to be really scary,” referencing conspiracy theories that COVID-19 is manufactured or not dangerous, Shiffer responded, “Do not comply.”
