“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?

‘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.
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?DONATE
