‘They/Them’ with Antifa Links Arrested Over Bombing at Alabama AG’s Office

Back in February, a bomb blew up at the Alabama Attorney General’s office in Montgomery, Alabama. This week, Kyle Benjamin Douglas Calvert was indicted and charged with “malicious use of an explosive and possession of an unregistered destructive device,” a press release by the AG’s office indicated. 

After Calvert allegedly detonated a bomb outside of AG Steve Marshall’s office on February 24, he was finally arrested on Wednesday. The explosion took place at approximately 3:42 a.m. and there were no injuries or major damage to buildings reported. 

“That device had the characteristics of an IED, and Calvert added a substantial number of nails and other shrapnel to increase its destructive capability,” a detention memo noted.

The same memo indicated that law enforcement officers found Calvert putting stickers on state buildings that advocated for “various political ideologies,” like some promoting Antifa, anti-police, anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement related stickers. 

“Thanks to the work of the FBI and our state and local law enforcement partners, this defendant is being held accountable for allegedly detonating an explosive device outside of the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. The Justice Department has no tolerance for acts of violence targeting those who serve the public,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland.

To add more layers to the story, some reports indicate that Calvert is transgender and has links to Antifa. That removes the surprise as to why he allegedly bombed a Republican’s office.

The Post Millennial shared an image from one of Calvert’s social media pages where he wrote that he’s a “goth neurodivergent D&D nerd” and uses “they/them” pronouns. Additionally on his TikTok page, it says he’s a ”pansexual.”

I mean it’s not that shocking that a person struggling with normalcy would think it’s okay to bomb the office of a state AG. 

If convicted, Calvert could face up to 20 years in prison and would be required to spend at least five years behind bars.
