Man threatens to cut Humboldt Republican volunteer with a knife, grabs donation box, at 4th of July Festival


A man was arrested by the EPD today at the 4th of July Festival in Eureka and taken to jail.

This happened after he came up to the Humboldt Republican booth, he was on a bicycle, drove by and grabbed the donation box and then threatened to cut one of volunteers with a knife. At this point, other volunteers and crowd stepped in, tackled him. He called them fascists.

When word spread about this, people came by to donate.

On the other hand, earlier in the day, I was walking by the same booth. There was a woman taking a picture of her young daughter, 6 or 7 years old next to a cut out of Donald Trump. The mother was telling the kid, "No, not like that. Pose like you have a double chin." After that display of her "parenting skills" and taking the photo, she walked away guffawing.

  1. I hope that puts him on blast to the right people.
    And as far as the mother goes, well there is just no hope.

  2. I think Trump is doing a good job as President. Give him time and see what he can do.

    1. Trump is a joke. He hasn't passed ONE SINGLE significant piece of legislation, and still brags about his "yuge win" of the popular vote which never happened, his "record breaking" inauguration crowds that weren't even the size of a county fair, and his pathetic sensitivity about his tiny hands is just laughable.

      He spends his time golfing at taxpayer expense (tens of millions of our dollars going directly into his private businesses), making shady deals with the enemies of America, watching TV and using Twitter as his silly little bully pulpit because he comes unglued every time a celebrity makes fun of him.

      What EXACTLY do you think he's accomplished? Be specific.

    2. No one is going to respond to some anonymous tantrum from an anti Trumper parroting unsubtantiated opinions. He won the election because of clueless voters like you, an arrogant media and a party that has shown how petty it is, encouraging acts of hate and violence against a legitimately won election and anyone who disagrees with the radical left.

  4. It's obviously a hate crime. If that filthy skunk is an illegal or a sharia-loving muslim? Buh-bye and Hooray! Trump is awesome. He'll be awesomer in 2020, 2024 and all the rest.... FOREVER. After all, he has a pen and a phone... just like dumBama claimed. Eat it up, snowflakes. You built it. Enjoy it. Your pain is our pleasure.

    1. As I mentioned in response to a facebook comment, there is no information that anyone has verified about his political party affiliation.

  8. I'm a democrat. I don't like Trump. Obviously though, this man's behavior should not be tolerated, and he deserves to go to jail for it. People have a right to go about their legal business in public without being threatened and having their property stolen. I would hope everybody could agree on that. It does not have much to do with who the president is.

    1. How refreshing to have a reasonable response. I agree, this isn't about Trump. This is about people being intolerant pricks. You don't have to be a Trump enthusiast to recognize the problem with this sort of activity.
