‘Boaters For Trump’ Member Says If Trump Loses, He’s ‘Heading To The White House With The Militia’
A ‘Boaters for Trump’ member says he’s ready to go to war for Trump if he loses in November.
“For me, it’s more like Trump risked his entire life to stand up for the country,” said Shawn Feeley, who works as a contractor.
“He didn’t need money. … He didn’t need fame,” he told the Tampa Bay Times, adding that “everybody is just hating on our president.”
Feeley explained that he’s never seen boats and flags catch on the way they have for Trump.
Asked what he would do if Trump loses in November, he told the newspaper: “I’m still flying it. And I’m heading to the White House with the militia.”
Craig Terry told the Times that he does not own any Trump merchandise other than his Trump 2020 boat flag because he feels the open seas are “neutral ground.”
Needless to say, Feeley’s threats didn’t go over very well on Twitter:
Say his name. @FBI pay a visit to Shawn Feeley. He stated he’s “ready to go to war for Trump, but he’s not signing up for the American military. He means the war for Trump.” Called sedition- conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state. #traitors

All a part of the MAGA show of bravado. Continue to threaten all the way to the end. Your bullying has been going on so long that we are numb to it, just like DJTs lies. Nobody is intimidated by Shawn Feeley. The threats have grown old. btw, thanks for self tipping the FBI

So if trump loses, these “law abiding citizens” will try to block the peaceful transfer of power?
Where’s the ‘law and order’ in that?

Well this is called treason.
We have laws for that. We have punishments for that. He can find out what those are first hand.

I mean, we're all under the realization that is going to actually happen, right? They're not kidding and people will die.
Just think about that.
For Donald Trump.

Sedition is a serious felony punishable by fines and up to 20 years in prison and it refers to the act of inciting revolt or violence against a lawful authority with the goal of destroying or overthrowing it. He needs to be arrested and prosecuted. #TrumpIsANationalDisgrace
