The arrest of Riddhi Patel,‌ a 28-year-old far-left protester in California, for threatening ⁢Bakersfield City Council members and Mayor Karen Goh regarding a Gaza ceasefire​ resolution has raised alarm. Patel’s 18 felony charges for making terrorist⁤ threats during a public hearing have ⁣drawn attention to concerns regarding protester conduct.

A far-Left protester was arrested last week in California for allegedly threatening Bakersfield City Council members and Republican Mayor Karen Goh for not backing a Gaza ceasefire resolution.

Riddhi Patel, 28, who reportedly claims to be non-binary, was charged with 18 felony counts of making terrorist threats and threatening city council staffers.

“You guys are all horrible human beings, and Jesus probably would have killed you himself,” she told the council members at a public hearing. “And I hope one day somebody brings the guillotine and kills all of you motherf***ers.”

“In the last five years I’ve attended city council meetings, there’s never been metal detectors, there’s never been more cops,” she later added. “The only reason you’re doing it is because people actually don’t care if you guys don’t like them, and they’re actually resisting. So you want to criminalize them.”

“And for that reason, you guys want to criminalize us with metal detectors,” she concluded. “We’ll see you at your house, we’ll murder you.”

Moments later, Mayor Goh signaled to law enforcement, “That was a threat, what you said at the end, so officers are going to escort you out and take care of that.”

Police quickly escorted her out of the room and arrested her.


Patel was charged with eight counts of threatening state officials and 10 counts of making threats with intent to terrorize.

She was reportedly ordered to be held on $1 million bail and stay at least 500 yards from city hall.

Video of her from her arraignment on Friday went viral online as she sobbed in court.
