If Varnum wanted to get rid of his security clearance, he didn’t have to be so dramatic about it. /s

Enjoy prison, shitheel.

Seriously though, how many more like him are among the engineers tasked with America’s cybersecurity?

I’m impressed! I’ve been in IT for over 25 years and I would never consider myself any sort of "cyber systems engineer.”

I’m sure that a Full Stack Designer pales in comparison.

It’s a public sector thing. Sort of how everyone in the private sector has an itch to put crypto and quantum in front of everything, the federal contractor community slaps cyber on everything because their vacuous techie speak is about two decades behind the times.

I often wonder how many anti-vaxxers were actually vaccinated by more intelligent parents.

It’s ironic something people 100 years ago would give their left arm for is now a hill some people are willing to die on.

Oh. They’re from Westminster. That makes sense. Carrol County probably one of the most conservative counties in all of Maryland and the source of much cray cray.

Or kill for.


As for this moron, the answer is simple. Don’t send death threats. Just don’t send your kids to public school. Keep them home where they can bask in your glaring wisdom. Public schools are for socialists anyhow.

Looking at his linkedin profile, it looks like a lot of access control type stuff. I would say, while it’s buzzwordy, it’s not an inaccurate title. It is the sort of jobs that does take a dedicated team to manage.

Can we please just split the US into two countries already.

Why is it that so many unhinged nut-jobs in the process of committing a felony always go with “AND THEYS GONNA TAKE ALL OUR GUNZ!”

Of course they’re going to take away your guns you idiot! You’re getting arrested for a felony! Want to keep your guns? DONT COMMIT A FELONY! Especially not one that involves threatening to use them on the law-makers you want to convince to not take away your guns!

I’m getting real tired of bigots saying this shit to anyone who isn’t just like them, especially given that the land we live on was invaded, usurped and stolen from its’ Indigenous Native People.

They need to get ‘the memo’ already:

I need “WE Ain’t Going NOWHERE!” to go viral, seriously.

We’re all in this mess together, like it or not.

Yes, he is indeed done with this “Bullshit”. He though he was stepping up, but he’s just shipping out to prison now.

In his threats, the man told the lawmaker, who is black, to “get the fuck out” of America, which echoes the same sort of explicitly racist inflammatory speech that is increasingly used by Donald Drumpf at his hate rallies and on Twitter.

It’s all of a piece with the Know-Nothing mentality. I’m sure they’ll find a whole bunch of firearms at his home, too.

I whish it was as easy for all the other shitheads who don’t threaten a congressperson on voicemail, but are dangerous as a pit of vipers. If vipers could kill indiscriminately at a distance.

Not unless it can be done person by person. We’re a bit too intermingled for a regional separation.

Narrator: It can’t.

Seriously, like 90% of us aren’t going anywhere else for quite some time… unless the fucking “eschaton” comes along, and then it wipes us all out at once.
