This is now where we are two weeks after a Democrat terrorist murdered 49 people at a gay nightclub. We have gay men so brainwashed by the angry left that they’re taking their ire out on Republicans. Who, by the way, had nothing to do with the terrorist attack.

A Virginia man who works as an Uber driver tweeted threats to shoot at least two U.S. senators, according to testimony at a hearing Monday in a Virginia court.

Kyler Schmitz has been ordered held in jail.

In at least one of the tweets, sent in the days immediately after the Orlando nightclub shooting, Schmitz allegedly threatened to shoot Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.). The message was directed at Blunt’s official Twitter handle.

The tweets, which included graphic and violent language, led to an investigation by U.S. Capitol Police.

An automated license plate reader detected Schmitz’s car on Independence Avenue SW within two blocks of the U.S. Capitol in the hours after he posted some of the messages, prosecutors said.

Schmitz acknowledges sending the tweets, his fiancé, Paul Cianciolo, told News4, but the tweets were meant as “parody” and satire. The messages were “inartful political discourse” on the issue of gun control, Schmitz’s defense attorney said.

Ah, the old parody and satire defense, a time-tested lefty fallback when your words catch up with you.

Schmitz intended to make a “direct threat” to a U.S. senator, U.S. Capitol Police said in a court filing.

Schmitz does not own a gun, according to testimony at the court hearing.

In other Twitter posts, Schmitz is accused of threatening groups of members of Congress by writing, “I can’t wait to shoot you in the face one by one.”

Now he’ll be called a political prisoner by the people who blame Republicans for the Democrat terrorist attack:
