DENVER, CO (The Boston Herald/Michelle Malkin) – Abolish ICE thugs in Colorado want to see the homes and families of immigration enforcement officials set aflame.
Denver Communists want alien detention facility employees dead, swinging from nooses with broken necks.
Both groups are brazenly using Facebook to spread their inflammatory and violent messages.
On Sept. 19, Abolish ICE Denver and the Denver Communists organized a protest outside the house of Johnny Choate, the warden of the immigrant detention facility in Aurora, Colo. Choate works for GEO Group, which operates the center. Instead of laying blame at the feet of global profiteers who induce illegal immigrants to risk their families’ lives to trespass our borders, anti-ICE agitators are targeting homeland security employees and contractors who simply enforce federal immigration and detention laws passed by Congress.
The Denver Communists group shared a poster on Facebook with Choate’s face superimposed over a generic neighborhood map with private residential homes. “CONFRONT LA MIGRA WHERE THEY LIVE,” the radicals urged members. The graphic describes Choate as “warden of Aurora’s notorious ICE concentration camp.” That’s the same inflammatory and defamatory language popularized by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and used by antifa militant Willem Van Spronsen, who attempted to firebomb the Tacoma ICE facility, also run by GEO Group, in July.
A commenter edited a distorted image of Choate’s face surrounded by flames, suggesting arson. His post was liked by three other fans/followers/members of the Denver Communists’ Facebook Group.
Another commenter leveled his own explicit thread on the Facebook page targeting Choate and his family in his home:
“Reenact human rights abuses, get hanged by the neck until dead. Simple.”
As I report in my book “Open Borders Inc.: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?” this virulent hatred for ICE and the Border Patrol traces its ideological lineage back to the cop-bashing domestic terrorism of the 1970s that festered in academia and resulted in bloodshed across the country. Today’s Abolish ICE extremists harbor the same seething “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” contempt for immigration enforcement. The underlying mission back then was the same as now: destabilization, disruption and destruction of civil order.
David Booth, who lives in Choate’s neighborhood, refuses to sit by while these bullies invade his community.
“I was shocked and surprised when I found out there was going to be an ‘ICE protest’ in my neighborhood,” he told me last Tuesday. Booth discovered that Abolish ICE Denver used Facebook to spread information on how they will be “going door to door in the neighborhood to let people know that a ‘monster’ lives among us.”
I reached out to Facebook for a response to these public safety concerns, but received no answer by my deadline.
“I think most of us, if not all, believe this protest is inappropriate regardless of where we stand on the issue of immigration,” Booth said. “Our neighbor is just doing his job, and has done nothing wrong, or illegal, in carrying out his duties.”
Following Stand With ICE rallies in Aurora, Colo., and Montgomery County, Md., that have drawn nearly 1,000 citizens over the past two weeks, Booth decided he could not sit on the sidelines.
