(Newser) – A 33-year-old Philadelphia man has been arrested and charged with making YouTube death threats against Eric Cantor. The video has since been pulled down, but in it Norman Leboon promised that Cantor would “receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer’s abominations,” according to Talking Points Memo.

When Google provided the FBI with Leboon’s IP address, they discovered that local police already had a warrant for his arrest for another threatening video. When federal agents visited him Sunday, Leboon said he was the “son of the god of Enoch,” and that he had made over 2,000 threatening videos. He allegedly admitted to making the Cantor video three days earlier, and called Cantor “pure evil.” Another video warns that, as punishment for removing his videos, "all the YouTube employees both men and women will lose their first-born sons."
