A YouTube user who posted several anti-Trump videos has been arrested after threatening to go on a “killing spree,” and we guarantee you didn’t hear a word about it in the mainstream media.
David Kenneth Smith sent a video to an instructor at his former college, Soka University in Aliso Viejo. It came after a series of emails were exchanged about disciplinary actions that were taken against Smith in 2008 by the school.
The video featured him with a semi-automatic pistol on his chest and was linked from a channel in which he discusses the pros and cons of engaging in a “killing spree.”
Smith was arrested and is being held on $1 million bail. Nine loaded firearms were recovered from his home.

“Should I be homeless or go on a killing spree?” Smith asks in one video. “I think being homeless is an entirely artificial situation. I wasn’t born here to obey every rule you guys ever made, OK? I was born to be who I am.”
What makes this story stand out – or rather, what SHOULD make this story stand out – is the fact that Smith also has several videos on that channel that attack President Trump.
“Smith has posted many videos ranting about the president,” PJ Media’s Debra Heine reported. “In a video dated October 13, 2017, he lamented how President Trump is ‘systematically dismantling’ his beloved Obama’s ‘presidential legacy.'”

In another video, Smith performs a dramatic rendering called ‘Trump and the Green Berets,’ in which he stars, shirtless, and brandishing weapons.
Now imagine a YouTube channel with anti-Obama videos, featuring a gun-wielding man wearing a MAGA hat and holding the Gadsden flag, and the subsequent media reaction.
Non. Stop. Coverage.
Instead, the media didn’t want to alert you to another far-left kook in our midst. This man, after all, was arrested two weeks ago!
“Investigators believe that Smith’s threats were credible and that an attack was possible,” according to KTLA 5, a local broadcast.
Just not credible enough to grab the attention of the mainstream media.
