SWAT mania! Big-name conservatives get swatted AGAIN on Christmas Day

 December 26, 2023

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Christmas Day was dangerously busy for two popular American conservatives who became victims of swatting incidents.

For the second time in just three days, the parents of conservative influencer Jack Posobiec were "swatted," with gruesome accusations the pundit had shot his wife and sons.

"Parents just got swatted again," Posobiec posted on X, formerly Twitter.

"Christmas night. They told the officers that I had shot my wife and sons in the kitchen."

Swatting is when someone makes a false report of an ongoing serious crime in order to elicit a response from law enforcement, such as the dispatch of a SWAT unit.

Jack's brother Kevin Posobiec posted a brief video clip of the incident online, noting, "Swatted on Christmas."

"There's not a war on Christians. Keep scrolling."

Jack Posobiec is a senior editor at Human Events and host of a daily talk show on "Real America's Voice."

Late Christmas night, Posobiec added:

"It is clear federal law is currently inadequate on swatting incidents whether to schools, public figures, or Members of Congress. Such law must be updated. In addition, Congress must address the total failure of federal law enforcement agencies to deal with these violent threats."

As WND reported Sunday, Posobiec's parents were swatted on Friday, with similar accusations.

"My parents were just Swatted," he began.

"Everyone is fine. Law enforcement are fully involved and tracking down the perpetrator.

"They told police that I had shot my parents and was threatening to shoot my family."

Later Saturday night, Posobiec thanked people for their concern, and warned the perpetrators:

"Thanks to everyone who reached out this evening. I understand others are going through this as well tonight. Law enforcement is fully involved.

"Going after family members like this, at Christmas, is not going over well. Expect a response."

Also on Christmas Day, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., shared that she herself was again swatted in Rome, Georgia:

"I was just swatted. This is like the 8th time. On Christmas with my family here. My local police are the GREATEST and shouldn't have to deal with this. I appreciate them so much and my family and I are in joyous spirits celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ!"

Over the weekend, Greene had told Posobiec: "I'm glad your family is safe ... It's extremely serious and they want you killed by police who think they are responding to something awful as you described. These people are evil."
