Right Wing provocateur reports fake death threats in order to garner sympathy and bring attention to his videos.

Right-wing personality Jacob Wohl appears to have faked death threats against himself and submitted them to police as evidence that he was facing “terroristic threats,” according to newly released documents.

Wohl and fellow provocateur Laura Loomer went to Minneapolis last month to “investigate” whether their quest to prove that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her own brother—a charge based on flimsy blog comments that has been disproven.

Wohl’s videos to his fans were premised on the idea that Minneapolis is an incredibly dangerous place, and often featured him wearing a bulletproof vest. At one point in a new video about their trip, Wohl goes to a Minneapolis police station to report death threats he says he and his team have received since being in the city.

One of those threats came via direct message from a Twitter account called @Drakehomes612, who described himself as a Minneapolis “diversity coordinator.”

“I hope you fuckin know that if [I] bump into you in Dinkytown or anywhere else in my city I’m going shoot you and shit on your fucking bodies,” the account wrote to Wohl’s team. “Get that fuck out my city you piece of shit. Now.”

But @Drakehomes612 isn’t a real account. As journalist Tony Webster first noticed, @Drakehomes612 is one of the fake accounts Wohl created in the run-up to his Twitter ban. A source familiar with Wohl’s fake accounts confirmed to me that @Drakehomes612 was run by Wohl before being deleted by Twitter. That means Wohl was sending himself fake death threats, presumably in an attempt to up the drama during his Minneapolis videos.

Wohl submitted the faked messages to police as proof that he was facing “terroristic threats” via Twitter. The faked messages threatening to “shit on your fucking bodies” were included in a packet of police documents related to the case issued on Wednesday by the Minneapolis Police Department.

Uh oh!

You know the Right Wing was beside themselves with glee while reporting how Empire star Jussie Smollett faked an attack against himself for publicity and to smear Trump supporters, and why wouldn’t they be? After all, that was tailor-made to feed into their belief that the Left Wing is a bunch of attention seeking snowflakes. 

But the truth is that this whole lying about threats has been used by the Right Wing for decades now. 

Remember those terror warnings from the Bush Administration? They were mostly bullshit.

There were also reports that some Republican candidate headquarters had been vandalized that turned out to be a lie. 

And who can forget the insane number of times that Sarah Palin claimed that she and her family were being threatened in one way or another?

In Palin’s case, there actually were a few potentially dangerous stalkers, but after crying wolf so many times it was hard for most of us to feel any sympathy toward her or her family. 

Look lying about threats is not exclusively a conservative or liberal tactic, but it is a stupid tactic and doing so, as in this case, can even potentially be against the law. 

Now let’s see if this Jacob Wohl fellow receives even a tenth of the kind of derision that was visited upon Jussie Smollett.

P.S. By the way if this Jacob Wohl’s name sounds familiar he was the guy who accused Robert Mueller of sexual misconduct last November. (Here’s the link.)

    I’m looking at his eyes in that still and pondering that there are probably a few sets of parents who actually let daughters leave the house with this guy. We’re sunk!

    “Russian tycoon Oleg Deripaska sued the United States on Friday, alleging that it had overstepped its legal bounds in sanctioning his companies and made him the “latest victim” in the ongoing U.S. probe into Moscow’s alleged political interference.

    In a legal filing, Deripaska asked the U.S. District Court in Washington to block the U.S. Treasury Department from using the “devastating power” of such economic sanctions that he said were inconsistent with U.S. Constitution.

    “Schiff suggested, moreover, that Mueller knows a lot more about Manafort than his office has so far let on. “We have not had access to Manafort and I don’t know whether we ever will,” he said. “But the special counsel’s office does have information about this.” Schiff added that the lingering questions about Manafort’s role underscore how important it is that Mueller’s final report be provided to Congress—and that the report include all of the underlying evidence Mueller collected, regardless of whether it results in a CONSPIRACY charge. “Our standard is not whether there is proof beyond a reasonable doubt,”
    “but whether there is a risk to national security.”

    I was going to say that you hardly see dems pulling this shit, but then comes word of Cory Booker and Rosario Dawson being officially an ‘item.’

    I’m surprised that you haven’t addressed the fake college entrance scandal, Gryph, or did I miss it.
    Lori Loughin’s girls are leaving USC for fear of being bullied. Ya think? Only because you mentioned the Palins.
    Wait for the reality show….it’s coming. EYE ROLL.

    With the exception of Shawn Christy, Palin had no stalkers unless you want to call David Kernell one because she was so darned stupid that he guessed he way into her yahoo account. He paid for that, now didn’t he. I still say that’s on her for being so lame, but “it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature” and all that happy horseshit, now isn’t it.

    Remember when Bristol feigned being scared all alone when there were Secret Service agents on her porch?
    Willow and she encouraging “men” to stop on by?

    Like Roger Stone, Jake A. Wohl, or as I like to call him “Jake Ahole” has no survival instincts. What a fucking stupid thing to do. He was too stupid to buy a throw-away phone and text himself? Preferably not from both phones while standing in the same spot at the same time.
