Have you ever heard of David Kenneth Smith? Chances are you haven’t — he’s a rabid anti-Trumper, thus his story didn’t fit any convenient narrative.
News of his arrest was treated as a local story with no national significance. However, if this freak had been a right-wing activist, he’d have been a front-page story in every paper in the country.
Smith, 39, was arrested in Orange County, Calif., on Nov. 2 following an investigation involving the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats after threatening a university professor through emails and posting threatening YouTube videos — in one he talked about going on a “killing spree.”
