A Keene State College student was charged with making a threatening phone call to a member of Congress over their stance on “the gays,” the Department of Justice confirmed on Monday.

Allan Poller made an appearance in federal court on Monday after allegedly making a call threatening to kill an unidentified member of the House of Representatives on March 29, according to the press release. Poller left a voicemail to the representative during which he said he would “take a bullet to your fucking head if you fuck with my rights anymore.”

“Hi, my name is Allan Poller, A-L-L-A-N P-O-L-L-E-R, phone number []8931. And I just want to let you know, Representative [Name], if you keep on coming for the gays, we’re gonna strike back and I guarantee you, you do not want to fuck with us,” he said, according to the press release. “We will kill you if that’s what it takes. I will take a bullet to your fucking head if you fuck with my rights anymore. And then if you want to keep going down that path, you know who’s next.”

Poller was charged with “transmitting in interstate commerce a threat to injure the person of another,” the press release reads. He faces “up to five years in prison, up to three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000.”

His lawyer described Poller as “peaceful” and said that he meant “no ill will toward anybody and does not believe in violence or disruptive protest,” the Associated Press reported. The lawyer said Poller “is mindful of the allegations against him and will allow the legal process to continue without further comment at this time.”

Poller told investigators that he was “emotional and intoxicated” when the call was made and that he does not own firearms.

Keene State College did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment. The FBI referred the DCNF to the press release.

  1. So another leftist blames his mental illness on alcohol? And of course, “emotions”. Sounds about par for the course to me.
    And one more thing – why is the person threatened a “their”? I mean seriously, folks. I know you don’t want to name the member of Congress, but you know, saying “her” or “him” isn’t identifying anyone. Another approach would be to say ” …over the latter’s stance…”. Proper writing isn’t that hard. Well, maybe for many in this generation it is, But “their” is PLURAL, not singular. Let’s try to get with the program, mmmk?
