There has always been a double standard when it comes to treatment of women on the left and right. The left constantly lectures us about treating women right but then we see liberal after liberal get caught treating women like dirt. Democrats worship Bill Clinton, the Kennedys, Hollywood, and whole bunch of other people who have treated women terribly. Conservative figures obviously aren’t immune to that kind of thing but the hypocrisy on the left is overwhelming.
Joni Ernst is a conservative woman so naturally she is treated like garbage by the media which may have played a part in inspiring Joseph Hilton Dierks from threatening to kill her.
Regardless of what his motive was, he was just handed a sentence for that threat.
It’s a serious one.
A judge sentenced an Iowa man to six years in federal prison on Wednesday for sending a series of threatening tweets to Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA).
Authorities said Joseph Hilton Dierks, 34, of Waterloo sent Ernst a series of threatening tweets in August, including one suggesting he would shoot the U.S. senator. The tweet included a link to a 2010 movie about a man fatally shooting a woman in the head.
Once the tweet was posted, U.S. Capitol Police got in touch with the Waterloo Police to dispatch officers to Dierks’s home. The responding officers said the suspect “promised to tone it down.”
Twenty-four hours later, Dierks continued sending threatening messages, authorities said.
At Dierks’s sentencing in Cedar Rapids’ federal courthouse, a judge outlined his criminal history for offenses, such as harassing a Waterloo police officer and carrying weapons. In addition to serving six years in federal prison, Dierks will be required to serve three years of supervised release, and probation officials will monitor his computer activity.
Looks like this guy got exactly what was coming to him.
6 years in the can to think about what he did.
Nice to see the justice system getting it right.
