Democratic Party Official Says 2A Supporters are ‘Homegrown Terrorists’

Facebook post by Maryland Democratic Party Secretary Robbie Leonard calling 2A Supporters ‘homegrown terrorists.’ (Photo: Facebook)

Maryland Democratic Party Secretary Robbie Leonard is in hot water for a recent Facebook post.  The post, consisting of a picture of a 2A supporter carrying a sign that states, “We Will Not Comply,” included the statement, “Time to dox some homegrown terrorists.”

“Doxing” is the practice of researching and publishing private information about an individual or organization online.  The practice is considered to be an invasion of personal privacy.

The Facebook post, which has since been deleted, was posted in response to a rally at the Maryland Capitol and quickly went viral.  The rally was attended by members of a pro-2A group called The Patriot Picket.  The group’s slogan is, “We Will Not Comply.”  The slogan is the group’s way of communicating that they have “had enough” of gun control regulations.

The protest was organized to speak out against new proposed gun legislation in Maryland.  Lawmakers there are considering bills that would: (1) add new requirements to the sale and transfer of shotguns and rifles; (2) make the manufacture of 3D-printed “ghost guns” illegal; and (3) add the Colt AR-15 Sporter H-Bar rifle to the existing list of regulated firearms, essentially banning its possession if purchased after October 1, 2013.

One member of The Patriot Picket who attended was Paul Brockman.  Brockman did not appreciate Leonard’s Facebook post.

“We think it’s disgusting,” Brockman told A Miner Detail.  He [Leonard] should apologize for it.  I mean, anybody who would . . . and, unfortunately we see it more and more on the Democratic side.   They don’t want people exercising their First Amendment rights.  And that was their First Amendment right to go out there on the sidewalk and say whatever they want — pro-gun, anti-gun.”

The Democratic Party Executive Director provided a written statement when asked by A Miner Detail to respond to Leonard’s post.

“When discussing firearm regulations, the specter of gun violence is always present.  These fraught conversations require peace and healing, not escalated conflict.  When activists wear shirts stating ‘We will not comply’ with new firearm regulations, that action escalates the conflict and a willingness to flout the rule of law.  Doxxing escalates the conflict, and violates rights to privacy.  The Maryland Democratic Party respects the rule of law, and peaceful participation in the legislative process.  We ask that advocates on both sides do the same,” the statement read.

Patriot Picket founder, Jeff Hulbert, told A Miner Detail that the Facebook post and follow-up response is “a typical reaction from Democrats who want to feel first and then think later.”

“Government can’t operate when Democrats only navigate with their feelings, ” Hulbert said.

    On the contrary , The democrat party is a terrorist organization full of anti- American low lives.

    The party of no morals, anti-Constitution , pro baby killing , anti-religion unless it’s muslim , anti-2nd amendment, anti-freedom/liberty, anti 1st amendment unless they approve, the list is endless.

    The present year is 1859 and The American Civil War will start in April of 1861—–And the Communists keep on pushing us toward that; don’t they ?? …………..Sooner than later-……—If I wake up tomorrow and hear that Pelosi was put out of her insanity; I would not be a bit surprised …Would you ??

  • Scotty Gunn March 2, 2019, 6:21 pm

    History will show upon looking back that the democratic party evolved into the socialist party and then evolved into the communist party, bring about the downfall of the republic of the United States.

  • JoeUSooner March 2, 2019, 5:04 pm

    No, wearing shirts stating ‘We will not comply’ (with new firearm regulations) does NOT show a willingness to “flout the rule of law.” Because that law is unconstitutional in the first place, wearing such shirts flouts only the false rule that is attempted by domestic enemies of the US. BIG damned difference!!

  • Keith slocum March 2, 2019, 8:50 am

    Democrats don’t want people exercising any of there rights. Democrats have thrown away the constitution and are trying to take over the country with there socialist attitudes.

  • Rlee March 1, 2019, 10:55 pm

    Only TERRORIST’S I can think of are the ones lead by Pestilosi. Miserable aholes in D.C. Every damn one of them. I wouldn’t piss in the ass of any demonrat if their guts were on fire!!!

  • jamie March 1, 2019, 7:24 pm

    why does the author say ‘Democratic Party’…? Democratic is an adjective. Does the author believe, Politics are adjective..? ‘Democrat’, just like ‘Republican’, are ‘Proper Nouns’ …

    every time you say ‘Democratic’, it tells a layman, that the Democrats, are ‘fair’…

  • Mark March 1, 2019, 1:45 pm

    Seems the Democratic party should follow the advise of the Democratic Party Executive Director and stop proposing and passing new firearms regulations which “escalated conflict” and allow “peace and healing” to take place.

    It is not escalating a conflict to advocate for the status quo. Ratcheting up the assault on citizens fundamental rights is an escalation.

  • AJ March 1, 2019, 1:37 pm

    “…that action escalates conflict…”

    So does taking away people’s rights. It sounds like the Democrats are literally pushing for a civil war. And it makes sense, because it would further their agenda and label all of us terrorists.

  • Ron S March 1, 2019, 1:14 pm

    I’m Conservative, but we need to remember this is not Democrat vs Republican. 2A in non-partisan and there are plenty of Democrats & Independents that own guns and don’t like having their Rights stripped away, much less being labeled a “Terrorist”. Even Hippies in Boulder marched against the new laws imposed by their City Council.

    If anything, I’d call the anti-gunners “Leftists”, because the Leftists seem to be the ones pushing for a socialist version of America, and that starts with stripping people of their Freedoms. Granted, most of them share the Democrat banner, but the more non-Leftists we can get to support 2A, the better off we’ll all be.

  • Viet Vet March 1, 2019, 11:59 am

    As this dolt exposes, it’s not about crime, because 2nd Amendment supporters are not criminals nor terrorists. 99% of all the guns in the country are never used in a crime in any given year. The left obviously sees the 2nd Amendment as an impediment to their overall agenda. You can’t see it any other way when you consider that there are already 100,000 words in the federal gun code, and each state having their own gun laws numbering in the tens of thousands of words each. So much so that when a gun is used in a crime, usually several gun laws are broken in the act.

    The left wants socialism-marxism-communism. They have sought for nearly a century to create a huge federal government, exactly what the Founders sought to prevent via the Constitution. Their utopia is World Socialist, no-borders. Government. The 2nd amendment stands in their way.

  • J smith March 1, 2019, 10:55 am

    Does this mean we can label them political insurgents?

  • Jaoquin Pardee March 1, 2019, 10:31 am

    I must take issue with Jeff Hulbert regarding a part of a statement he made, I quote “a typical reaction from Democrats who want to feel first and then think later.”

    Democrats NEVER think, first or later!!

  • Buddy March 1, 2019, 10:15 am

    Why would we comply to laws bring wtitten by criminals defying their oaths of office and passing bills to murder new born babies? Domestic terrorists? LOL!!!! The only domestic terrorists we have are those in Congress.

  • Brad March 1, 2019, 10:14 am

    So, taking a stand for our rights makes us a Terrorist? Has this guy even looked up the definition of the word? What an effing idiot.

  • Jay March 1, 2019, 10:12 am

    “We will not comply” NO, “We The People” have the responsibility Not to comply with unconstitutional laws! The declaration of Independence says we must fight to protect our rights against a government that does not comply with our Constitution! Are they going to jail over 100 million Americans for saying and Not complying?!?!?

  • WuDanFu March 1, 2019, 10:02 am

    Are not those who seek to circumvent our constitutional rights, and convince others to do the same, guilty of sedition?

  • James M Mathews March 1, 2019, 9:34 am

    We are not “Homegrown Terrorists”, we have to protect ourselves against the National Socialists.

  • Mike OHare March 1, 2019, 9:25 am

    He should have his citizenship revoked. People have the right to protest, if you don’t believe that then he should go back to which ever communist country he came from because he’s obviously not American.

  • Sean Ebra March 1, 2019, 8:30 am

    Looks like he’s against the constitutions first and second Amendments AND wants to Dax citizens for exercising their rights! Hmmm…sounds like treason to me.

  • joefoam March 1, 2019, 7:46 am

    Well, gun owners have been demonized yet again. We are deplorable terrorists now, along with being mouth breathing troglodytes, clinging to our guns and bibles. How many more insults have to be tolerated until our elected officials take off the gloves and fight back?

  • Rick Litton March 1, 2019, 7:39 am

    Maybe he can be doxxed? Guess it could work both ways.

  • Pat March 1, 2019, 6:49 am

    They call us terrorists. Well in that case it’s long past time for us to instill some terror in the marxist traitors of the democrat party. Our forefathers would have long since been stacking bodies by now. The time for civility has past. The time for bloodshed is now. I am more than willing to die to protect my rights and ensure tyranny never rears its ugly head. Are you willing to die trying to take them?

  • John Iverson March 1, 2019, 4:56 am

    I am pro 2a and spent 20 years in the army, shed blood in Iraq in defense of this country, how dare this a__h___.

      Thank you for serving our great nation.

    • Sean Ebra March 1, 2019, 9:48 am

      Thank you!

    • edward martis March 4, 2019, 5:24 pm

      I too; spent 21 years in the USN/ CA NG and was never hurt; due to pure dumb luck; except for a some “head-ons” at various altitudes in Huey’s on drizzley days—–I was a CREWCHIEF for years—-If you would like to see the American Communist Party Hq. at 6501 Telegraph Av. , Bzerkley, CA (used book store) then; by all means look up CP USA—-There about 40 offices nationwide—-Track down your local and pay them a visit—STNK-BOMBS are VERY effective; by the way—-Communist blood red USSR ‘hammer/sicle flags are fairly common there……The CA NG is looking forward to killing as many Communist’s as fast as they can…Oh, Happy Days are here again—–Love M-234 “mini-guns”; don’t you ?

  • Carrucan February 28, 2019, 11:04 am

    Nothing says “I am an ineffectual wussy” more than proclaiming someone needs to be “doxxed.”

  • Michael Rossi February 27, 2019, 6:07 pm

    Can’t blame the REAL problem in Baltimurder.

    Where’s Daddy?

  • Sepp W February 27, 2019, 5:04 pm

    Maryland. The governor is a closet liberal and Never Trumper. The MD legislature is controlled by the democrats and MD is one of the worst on gun control laws. Shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, shocked maybe, but shock is not the same as surprised.
