Joe Oltmann is a right-wing activist who also happens to be an ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump and the MAGA movement.
On Friday, Oltmann called for the hanging of any U.S. senators who voted to avert a government shutdown, branding them as “traitors” to their country.
Speaking on the Conservative Daily podcast, Oltmann remarked:
“There’s your list of 19 traitors to the American People, along with all the other traitors to the American people. I want people to go out there and get some wood. The gallows are getting wider and longer. We should be able to build gallows all the way from Washington, D.C. to California.”
NEW: Colorado conservative activist Joe Oltmann calling for the mass hanging of “traitors,” including US Senators he names. Oltmann founded FEC United, which has a militia wing. The group was led by @ColoradoKbb until she became @cologop chair. #copolitics pic.twitter.com/Nqd9Z3hwxS

Oltmann, it should be noted, is the leader of FEC United, a militant right-wing extremist group that has its own militia. In the past, Oltmann has predicted that he believes “a war is coming” in the U.S. between factions on the left and right.
Dominion Voting Systems is currently suing Oltmann for claiming that their voting machines would not allow Trump to win the 2020 election though he provided no evidence to support such an allegation.
Twitter users let Oltmann have it after he called for violence:
This needs to be shared with the FBI

Why is the @FBI not knocking on this guys door? This is disturbing on so many levels. How many will get hurt or killed because of this guy? How many will it take before something is done to stop him? The @GOP must be so proud that he is even after them now!

At what point do we stop calling them “conservatives” and start calling them “radicals” or “fascists”?
