MOORE, Okla. (KFOR) – According to an FBI affidavit, on Jan. 8, the FBI received several posts from both the Oklahoma City Police Department and Moore Police Department that were made on the social media site Parler by Michael Brandon Houck from Moore, who goes by Brad.
One of the posts reads, “You had better be ready patriots! It is go time very soon. We must attack all central communities to big cities are democratic cities. Fiber optics telecom bridges supply routes we can starve those MF* to death. The people are ready its time.”
Another post reads in part, “Load your magazines gather your things it’s time to go and take out the sorry B*.”
On January 6, the day of the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Houck wrote on Parler, “All of these criminals must be taken out by the people and we should start with their families. Start with what is most important to them…”
Another post, threatening Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was then the Senate Majority Leader, reads “hey mitch, how are your grandkids doing?”
He then wrote, “Hey justice Roberts, we are coming for you and your illegally adopted kids!! finished! they will get to watch you hang.”
Once a search warrant for Houck’s Parler account was served, authorities discovered even more threats.
One of those threats was made against Oklahoma Senator James Lankford on January 7. It reads, according to the documents, “James Lankford from Oklahoma is a sorry m**f and will pay for his treasonous lack of action. Better keep your family close James.”
