Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Army vet arrested after allegedly calling for attack on Florida protesters”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A former airborne infantryman was arrested Friday on charges he issued a call to attack protesters Sunday at Florida’s state Capitol.

Daniel Alan Baker, 33, of Tallahassee, Florida, faces a federal charge involving transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Prosecutors described Baker as a “hard-core leftist” who was angry about the January 6. siege of the U.S. Capitol.

The former soldier received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Army after he went AWOL when his unit was to deploy to Iraq, according to the Miami Herald.

Prosecutors said Baker, who has reported ties to a militia group in Syria, planned to violently confront protesters at the Capitol on Sunday.
