Tallahassee Man Arrested For Inciting Violence At The Florida Capitol Building
Feb. 15, 2021
--- Quote ---TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – Federal law enforcement agents today arrested Daniel Baker of Tallahassee for transmission, in interstate commerce, of a communication containing a threat to kidnap or to injure. Baker issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protestors gathered at the Florida Capitol this Sunday. He specifically called for others to join him in encircling any protestors and confining them at the Capitol complex using firearms. Lawrence Keefe, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, announced the arrest. ...

Baker, a former U.S. Army Airborne infrantryman who was kicked out of the service, has a history of expressing his belief in violent tactics. In recent days his social media posts had escalated significantly. He specifically expressed an intent to violently disrupt protests occurring between now and Inauguration Day next Wednesday, January 20, and was actively recruiting others to join him. Baker, who actively participated in multiple protests throughout the United States last summer, has used social media as a way to promote, encourage, and educate his followers on how to incapacitate and debilitate law enforcement officers. ...

After approximately one year in the Army, Baker received an other-than-honorable discharge in 2007 after he went AWOL before his unit was to deploy to Iraq. In 2017, he joined the People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group fighting in Syria against ISIS and the Turkish government. He claimed on social media that he was a trained sniper for the YPG, and he can be seen in a documentary film fighting ISIS and Turkish militants. YPG is a sub-affiliate of the Kurdistan’s Working Party (PKK), which is designated by the United States government as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. ...

I have not seen this reported much. #Antifa extremist Daniel Baker,  33, of Tallahassee, was arrested by the FBI after calling for comrades to kidnap Trump supporters using firearms last month. Baker previously traveled to both Syria & Seattle's CHAZ.

--- Quote ---Daniel Baker was convicted Thursday after issuing a "call to arms" for others on Jan. 20 to confront supporters of then-President Trump whom Baker said would storm Florida capitol that day.

"Armed racist mobs have planted the Confederate flag in the nations [sic] Capitol while announcing their plans to storm every American state Capitol on or around inauguration day," Baker wrote on Facebook on the "Defend Tallahassee" page, which he created, on Jan. 12, according to The Epoch Times.
"We will drive them [pro-Trump protesters] out of Tallahassee with every caliber available. They are staging an armed takeover so only an armed community can stop them! We can win! We have a duty to and a duty to win," Baker also said in his post.
