Former NH Middle School Instructor Pleads Guilty to Threatening Anti-CRT Republican Lawmaker

Former NH Middle School Instructor Pleads Guilty to Threatening Anti-CRT Republican Lawmaker

“I truly hope you get skull f***ed to death you pathetic privileged white [expletive] boi”

Opposition to Critical Race Theory has brought out the crazy in some people on the left. In New Hampshire, a former middle school instructor has pleaded guilty to making violent threats against a Republican lawmaker who is against CRT in education.

The threats in this case were completely unhinged. This person was an educator?

Damien Fisher reports at NH Journal:

‘I Hope You Get Skull F***ed to Death:’ Opponent of Anti-CRT Law Pleads Guilty to Threatening Lawmaker

Former Allenstown Middle School instructor Daniel Rattigan has pleaded guilty to charges he threatened to mutilate state Rep. Keith Ammon (R-New Boston) and sexually assault one of his family members in response to the Republican lawmaker’s support for anti-CRT legislation.

“I’ve gotten crazy emails, but nothing like this one. It was unhinged,” Ammon said.

Rattigan, 31, pleaded guilty in Goffstown District Court on Friday to two misdemeanor counts — one for harassment and one for obstructing government administration. Two other identical charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Rattigan will not do jail time, but instead has $1,240 in fines which are suspended for one year so long as he remains on good behavior. Rattigan is not to have any contact with Ammon, other than writing an apology letter.

“I doubt it will be sincere,” Ammon said.

Rattigan was reportedly upset with Ammon’s efforts to prevent schools from teaching Critical Race Theory-based content in New Hampshire classrooms. Ammon was one of the original sponsors of HB 544, which “prohibits the dissemination of certain divisive concepts related to sex and race in state contracts, grants, and training programs.” That legislation was set aside for an anti-discrimination law passed as part of the 2021 budget.

Rattigan called Ammon a racist in the messages and he made numerous obscene and graphic threats against Ammon and a family member.

“I truly hope you get skull f***ed to death you pathetic privileged white [expletive] boi,” Rattigan wrote in one of the messages.

Just lovely.

Jeremiah Poff of the Washington Examiner has more:

The New Hampshire Journal reported that Rattigan had worked at the middle school in 2013 for about 18 months, citing Superintendent Peter Warburton, who said Rattigan had since not been employed by the district.

Ammon had been one of the primary sponsors of the legislation to ban critical race theory in New Hampshire public schools, but the bill was later abandoned in favor of an attachment to the state budget that functionally accomplished the same thing, according to the report.

Democrats and the media have assured us that CRT isn’t being taught in schools anyway, so why was this former educator so angry about opposition to it?

If he made threats, for which he was convicted, why doesn’t the story quote any of them? And why wasn’t he charged with making threats? The only quote from him is not a threat, and is actually protected speech; if that were all he wrote, and he did so only once or a few times, he could not have been charged with anything.

What he was actually convicted of was harassment, which by definition requires sending nasty messages (not necessarily threats) for an extended period. “Obstructing government administration” is a BS charge

    It’s called a “plea agreement”

    “Some of Rattigan’s other threats, which are several pages long and spread over a two-day period, are so sexually graphic, violent in nature, and directed at some of Ammon’s family members, that the lawmaker asked The Epoch Times not to print them.
    “There are definitely some psychopathic tendencies there,” Ammon told The Epoch Times, “I don’t want to give another crazy person ideas.”

      Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | December 26, 2021 at 3:16 pm

      “Other” means one has been revealed. But what was revealed is not a threat at all. It’s horrible, but it’s not a threat, and taken in isolation it can’t be illegal.

    I presume, maybe wrongly, that there were actual threats. The one example was a hope, not a theat.

So Democrats can threaten to physically assault people they don’t like (as well as threat their family) and as long as they say they will be good then all is forgiven.

Meanwhile conservatives who walk through doors opened by Democrats get the book thrown at them and imprisoned for months on end all because they were in the wrong ace at the wrong time.

Fuck the fucken fuckers! 🤬🤬

    You forgot to mention solitary confinement as they await trial. The Jan-6 political prisoners have suffered far more than any other protester or trespasser because of their political beliefs.

    Pardon the Jan-6 political prisoners. Release them from the American gulag.

    Milhouse in reply to mailman. | December 26, 2021 at 3:21 pm

    No, a hypothetical conservative who did this would probably get the same sentence. You can’t compare this to the Jan 6 people, because they’re a special case. They’re being treated differently than anyone else, out of spite on the part of the FBI, the DC prosecutors, and a handful of DC judges. Mainly that Tanya mother of a dog, but I’m sorry to say Royce Lamberth too.

      Amazing! your “retarts” (sp intentional) sound just like something that would come from asking siri or alexa a question! Why don’t YOU test YOUR theory on EQUAL treatment and call ANY democrat congress critter and say the same things? You ahead – we’ll wait!

Hey Garland, is this guy in your data base? Does the NEA know about him?

    Can be be classified as a CRT Supremacist ?

    >> Oh, never mind, those are the kinds of supremacists the Woke want. So DOJ will ignore them and go after parents.

such a pity they’ve outlawed duelling–would be satisfying to go to the schmuck’s house and invite him outside to answer for his crude behaviour/insults with his life

    Milhouse in reply to texansamurai. | December 26, 2021 at 3:27 pm

    I don’t think there was ever a time when dueling was legal. But I’m certain there has never been a time when you could force someone to duel. Anyone who didn’t subscribe to the ridiculous rules of your stupid honor culture could just ignore a challenge and go about his business, and if you killed him you would hang for it.

      henrybowman in reply to Milhouse. | December 26, 2021 at 4:53 pm

      ,a href=””>Yes, there was.
      Given that the American version of the Code Duello was written by the governor of South Carolina, that’s a pretty good indication.

        Milhouse in reply to henrybowman. | December 26, 2021 at 6:55 pm

        The fact that a governor wrote the code is no indication that it was legal, any more than the fact that every president during prohibition had a bar in the White House.

        At any rate it was certainly not legal to force someone to duel. Any sane person, who didn’t subscribe to the degenerate “honor culture” that produced dueling, could simply refuse to participate.

        BTW your article doesn’t explain why dueling lost popularity; it was the fact that handguns became more reliable and easier to aim, so the chance of being killed in a duel became unacceptably high. The whole point of dueling was to prove to ones fellow “honor culture” savages that one was not a coward, by taking a small but significant risk, like the savages today who play chicken with trains or traffic. Once the risk was no longer small, people decided they’d rather be “cowards” than dead.

          You just can’t answer anything without some philosophical rambling combined with they typical democrat/liber/rino insults! Your comments are usually very telling – I’d say a paid troll for sure, but probably not American!

          Klawnet in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2021 at 11:19 am

          Yes, it was legal. Your ignorance is a vast chasm.

          The so-called “savages” that you lament, built one of the greatest nations on earth.

          You, sir, as far as I’m aware, have built nothing similar.

          Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, for example, served during the Revolution and were involved in the early days of constructing America.

          And quite frankly, as easily as the left and media slander and libel Americans, dueling would make them more circumspect and more civilized.

          Evidently, you prefer the uncivilized discourse we now suffer under, wherein plumbers and electricians can be kneecapped when the left dislikes their utterances.

          You’re of the “violence is speech,” but “speech is violence,” school of thought.

          No thank you. Bring back duels.

      Close The Fed in reply to Milhouse. | December 27, 2021 at 11:47 am

      Of course dueling was legal! Pres. Jackson lamented the making of it illegal, observing that ruffians would insult other men freely, without the possibility of challenges to duels.

      And damn, if Jackson wasn’t right AGAIN!

Given that this guy lasted exactly six weeks as a middle school teacher, it’s almost unfair to even mention it. I bet people at the school have war stories.
