An anti-Trump, pro-DACA activist was arrested at a town hall in Pennsylvania for allegedly ominously asking Republican Senator Patrick Toomey if he could "confirm" whether or not his "daughter has been kidnapped."

From The Hill:
Local police are reportedly planning to charge a man who attended Sen. Patrick Toomey’s (R-Pa.) town hall after he asked the senator a question that was perceived as “threatening.”

The exchange between Toomey and the man, reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, led Bethlehem, Pa., police to remove the man, who law enforcement said they would charge with disrupting a public meeting and disorderly conduct.

According to the Post-Gazette, Simon Radecki of Northampton County asked Toomey a question about a family member in an effort to talk about immigration.

"We've been here for a while. You probably haven't seen the news. Can you confirm whether or not your daughter Bridget has been kidnapped?" Radecki asked the senator.

After several seconds, Radecki then said, "The reason I ask is because that's the reality of families that suffer deportation."Tim Fallon, the CEO of PBS39, which aired last week's town hall, described the exchange to the newspaper as "one of the scariest things that I have ever been a part of." 

[...]A spokesman for Toomey called the question "reprehensible."

"Asking questions that are based upon kidnapping a child is not only reprehensible, but it is inherently threatening," Steve Kelly told the newspaper.
Simon Radecki desribes himself on his Facebook as the "Deputy Regional Field Director at Mainers for Responsible Gun Ownership," which is an anti-gun group.

His profile has a message about his support for DACA:



He shared photos of himself meeting with Democrats Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and Dick Durbin:





Radecki is also a "Black Trans Lives Matter" activist who posted this picture with a Muslim crescent and star:









Radecki twitter has gems like these:



Radecki is apparently against the First Amendment along with the entire Bill of Rights because it was written by "white supremacists."











He's also obsessed with bashing white people:



Leftists are saying he was arrested merely for asking a question, which very well may be true.

Regardless, these are the same people who say right-wing speech is "hate speech" and "violence" which should be outlawed.

These are the same people who say websites like The Daily Stormer, Stormfront, Gab.ai and soon many, many more should have their domains seized and be banned from the internet for their speech.

They also say everyone to the right of Karl Marx is a "Nazi" who should have their free speech rights stripped and be punched.



I haven't seen video of the question to determine whether or not it was actually threatening, but it's certainly comically hypocritical of leftists to rush to defend this man's free speech rights when most of them now openly oppose free speech as a principle.

UPDATE: Here's video of the question, the audio was redacted live.
