A Pennsylvania man who allegedly stormed into a Dairy Queen with a loaded gun and told police he was trying to “kill Democrats and liberals” is facing criminal charges, according to local reports.
Jan Stawovy, 61, was carrying a loaded handgun and additional ammo when he charged into the Dairy Queen in the tiny borough of Delmont, Pennsylvania on Saturday, according to CBS News Pittsburgh (KDKA). He wore a rainbow clown wig, and police claimed that he said he wanted to restore Trump to the presidency.
Police detained Stawovy and a search warrant led authorities to find more guns and ammo in his vehicle.
A Facebook account that appears to belong to Stawovy has shared multiple pro-Trump and far-right posts, including a link to a video about the “Deep State” and the “Great Awakening,” common refrains among adherents of the far-right conspiracy movement QAnon. The account also posted a message appearing to speculate there would be a civil war in 2024.
