Police and feds are investigating a West Virginia man’s social media threat to mass murder protesters at President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally.
The president is scheduled to hold a campaign rally Thursday afternoon in Huntington, and one of his supporters warned protesters they would be shot for blocking roads, reported local news website Downtown Huntington.

The website posted a screenshot of the threatening comments posted by Dana Capron, a gun-loving Trump supporter who frequently comments on online news stories, reported Travis Gettys of Raw Story.
“Calling all armed conservatives, if we go then we go armed,” Capron wrote. “Not for the rally but for the protesters. Let’s give the protesters what they want … Bring everything you have or can bring.”
“We start with anyone blocking the streets then we clear the protesters once and for all, by any means necessary,” Capron added. “Let’s show them that this is not Commiefornia and we deal with protesters faster.”
Downtown Huntington reported Capron’s social media accounts have been deactivated, and his Facebook post was under investigation by local and federal authorities, including the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI.
Capron, who claims ties to the III% militia movement, has fantasized online on various websites for months about killing protesters, and he issued a specific threat against filmmaker Michael Moore on Twitter.
His Disqus account calls on militia groups to kill those who publicly oppose Trump.
“Liberal’s don’t own guns, they are all in the dildo movement,” he posted last year on The Federalist website. “I could care less about liberals and their agenda. Shut the f*ck up and start shooting if you all have the balls. Again i’m sick and tired of hearing sh*t from the left.”
“Oh and if the militia were to be there and and anything were to get started,” he added, “they would handle it very swiftly and there would be a lot of so called innocent liberals face down dead in the streets and that would be a welcome sight to me.”
He also called for jailed protesters to be starved.
“A couple days with nothing is the only way to go for them,” he posted. “Simply walk away and forget that they are there. That should fix them really good. Personally I don’t care if they ever get fed or out for that matter.”
He also posted some extremely far-fetched things about Hillary Clinton on The Hill website according to Gettys.
“They want all of us dead and our children’s blood splattered all over the roads so they can dance in it to the devil’s tune,” Capron posted. “All Christian women who are pregnant will be rounded up and forced to have an abortion then then taken to a courtyard and shot in the back of the head. Any man found to be a Christian will be shot where they stand even in the churches. We will have to hide our faith, bibles and guns.”
