Creepy leftist Alexander Micah Cohen enters not guilty plea
A Chicago-area leftist has entered a plea of not guilty to threatening to “shoot” and “blow up” a Turning Point USA-sponsored conference of conservative high school students that took place a month ago in the nation’s capital.

The charge came after foul-mouthed Antifa demonstrators assaulted Turning Point founder Charlie Kirk and his communications director Candace Owens while they were trying to enjoy breakfast August 6 at a Philadelphia restaurant.

Alexander Micah Cohen, 28, of Skokie, Illinois, was reportedly arrested in late July, after the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., began investigating threats he allegedly made pertaining to Turning Point’s High School Leadership Summit conducted July 23 through 26 at George Washington University. High-profile speakers at the confab included U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

Washington police acted after the parent of a student attending the summit saw Cohen’s threats online and alerted the FBI.

Cohen pled not guilty August 24 before Judge Sean C. Staples in District of Columbia Superior Court and was set free on his own recognizance. He was also ordered to stay away from George Washington University. His next court appearance in the case listed as court file 2018 CMD 012489 is September 24.

Cohen targeted the Turning Point conference, which hundreds of conservative high school students attended, by tweeting a photo of a man bearing a baseball bat adorned with barbed wire and the message “On my way to #HSLS2018 to greet the nice conservative teenagers.”

On July 26, after Attorney General Sessions spoke at the summit, Cohen took to Twitter to post an image of himself and the message: “I’m riding through D.C. [to] go and shoot GWU up … We gon’ come and blow GWU up.”

Cohen responded flippantly when police contacted him. A police detective said in court documents that Cohen told her she “should focus on others who post photos of guns.” When asked to explain what his July 26 tweet meant, he “declined to comment any further.”

Making death threats against Republicans is Cohen’s thing.

On June 14, 2017, the same day Bernie Sanders supporter James T. Hodgkinson gravely wounded and came close to assassinating House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Cohen used his Twitter account at @DudeSlater to urge the murder of Republican senators. Claiming to be editor-in-chief of Vox, Cohen tweeted a professional-quality table of graphics about what it would take to prevent the enactment of the Trump-backed proposed “American Health Care Act” of 2017 that would have partially repealed Obamacare.

The graphic showed a guillotine, its blade raised high and ready to be used, beside the message: “KILLING 3 GOP SENATORS WOULD RENDER THEM UNABLE TO PASS IT[:] With only 49 Senators, the GOP would be unable to pass AHCA for the President’s signature[.]”
