Miami-Dade resident Jose Fernandez told county officials on Tuesday that he would shoot all thirteen of them if they took his house. Fernandez, who owes the county more than $316,000 in restitution, attended the meeting wearing an anti-Agenda 21 t-shirt. Fernandez has been fighting Florida’s environmental agency over wetlands violations, according to the Miami Herald.
Agenda 21 is a United Nations action plan to encourage sustainable development that has been twisted into a secret plan to dispossess everyone of their homes and collectivize property by conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones.
Fernandez accused the commission of “confiscating the land of small farmers.”
“You confiscated my land already,” he said. “Now you want my house. I came here to tell you in public, if you sell my house, the ‘bleep’ is going to hit the fan,” he added, apparently more comfortable making threats than cursing. “And I’m going to board the entire house with me inside.”
“I dare you to sell my house,” Fernandez told commissioners. “You have become tyrants. You have become a corrupted government. You have destroyed my family. And hundreds of families. And I said: enough. I am the people. And the time that you sell the house, my Constitution gives me the right to shoot every one of you,” he added, pointing at the officials. “Shoot ’em.”
Fernandez was removed from the meeting by two sergeants-at-arms and arrested. He was charged with 13 felony counts of threatening to harm a public official–the twelve commissioners and Mayor Carlos Gimenez–he threatened and a misdemeanor.
