The ultra-violent far left is at it again, and this time, they are plotting an acid attack on a free speech rally in Washington D.C. A left-wing agitator using the artwork and a pseudonym associated with a Rolling Stone and Playboy journalist has made serious threats to use muriatic acid on conservatives at the upcoming Demand Free Speech rally on July 6.
According to Big League Politics, Antifa believes demanding free speech should be punishable by acid attack.
A person utilizing artwork created by a Rolling Stone journalist who writes favorably about Antifa has threatened to attack attendees of the Demand Free Speech rally with "muriatic acid, wax, and balloons" on July 6 in Washington, D.C.
The threats were made on a popular right wing Telegram channel. A user with the name "POUND ON YOUR BOY" made several threats against the rally, prompting co-organizer Enrique Tarrio to contact the FBI and DHS, who are now planning to provide additional security to the event.-Big League Politics
"I just want to toss as many balloons of Muriatic acid in the faces as many Proud Boys I can [sic]", wrote the user, "I just want to blind as many of you c**k suckers are possible."
Muriatic acid (also known as hydrochloric acid) is a colorless inorganic chemical system with the formula H ₂O: HCl. Hydrochloric acid has a distinctively pungent smell. It is classified as strongly acidic and can attack the skin over a wide composition range since the hydrogen chloride completely dissociates in aqueous solution. Harmful effects are experienced through several routes of exposure to muriatic acid, including inhalation, ingestion, and skin or eye contact. Ingesting or inhaling muriatic acid may be fatal and damages to the body are often irreversible.
POUND ON YOUR BOY made numerous threats and eventually concluded his participation in the Telegram channel with "We already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons."
The threat was amplified when POUND ON YOUR BOY said Antifa has wax. Although muriatic acid can be purchased in virtually any pool store or home improvement store and is plenty dangerous to humans on its own, it can quickly be washed off with water.
However, by combining the muriatic acid with wax, it will immediately form a film similar to candle wax on the injured person's skin and they will be unable to remove it easily. The damages from the wax/acid mix could be so severe, that as the acid enters the bloodstream, a victim could die of cardiac arrest.
"It starts with milkshakes, then it escalates to what happened to Andy Ngo, and now they're threatening us with acid attacks," Enrique Tarrio told Big League Politics, referencing the severe attack experienced by Ngo when Antifa groups threw milkshakes at him and repeatedly struck and kicked him. "All because we want to defend free speech in Washington, D.C." Tarrio went on, "We will not be intimidated with these tactics of fear and fascism. We will celebrate our First Amendment without apology."
