What If Tea Partier Had Said It: Wis. GOP Given Detailed Death Threat for Union Vote
Newsbusters ^ | March 10, 2011 | Lachan Markey

Posted on 03/10/2011 10:20:09 AM PST by lbryce

Picture this scenario: hours after the vote on Obamacare - one year ago today - a Tea Party protester sent an email to leading congressional Democrats with a detailed description of plans to murder both those legislators and their families. The sender claimed to know where those Democrats lived, and said he had planted bombs in various places, including the capitol building.

What do you suppose the media reaction would be?

Odds are it would be a whole lot louder than the near-total media silence thus far over an email sent to Wisconsin Senate Republicans Wednesday night that states plainly: "You will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions." The email goes on to describe in detail how the sender plans on killing Republican members of Wisconsin's State Senate, who voted last night to enact Gov. Scott Walker's proposed reforms to public employee union collective bargaining. Read the full text of the email below the break, via 620 WTMJ's Charlie Sykes.

From: XXXX Sent: Wed 3/9/2011 9:18 PM To: Sen.Kapanke; Sen.Darling; Sen.Cowles; Sen.Ellis; Sen.Fitzgerald; Sen.Galloway; Sen.Grothman; Sen.Harsdorf; Sen.Hopper; Sen.Kedzie; Sen.Lasee; Sen.Lazich; Sen.Leibham; Sen.Moulton; Sen.Olsen Subject: Atten: Death threat!!!! Bomb!!!!

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Rea below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

It's mind-boggling the hypocrisy, demagoguery manifested by the MSM and their left-wing, liberal ilk.

The ONLY response this terroristic threat DESERVES is a thorough investigation followd by incarceration for the perps.

RE: threats against Wisconsin Republicans.

Rush Limbaugh (joked): Holder says investigation of threats limited to threats against "our people." Isn't Holder the head of the Obama/Holder Department of Just Us?

The critics of Congressman King's hearings on Islamists (political Islam, Sharia Law, jihad advocates) are right.. there are other terrorists in America. Union Democrats.

I have no doubt by the end of the day MSNBC will have “proof” that the death threat was written by a “racist teabagger” and most likely by Sarah Palin herself, using a pen dipped in caribou blood....

The Democrat Party (also known as the main stream media) ignores anything not favorable for communism, liberalism, or socialism.

Better still collect the death threats & when the Rats return literally read them into the senate record one after the other pointing out that the Rats are the folks who ARE AGITATING FOR THIS . Go on talk radio nationwide read the threats over the air let the American people know just what the left is really all ablut when they don’t get their way .

Use the media to smear the rats wave the bloody shirt & call out the rat party liars everytime. This is a fight to the knife & the knife up to the hilt. If the GOP leadership doesn’t understand or comprehend that fact replace them as needed.

Well, at least it wasn't some harmful TEA Party vitriol like, “Taxed Enough Already” or “Cut Federal Spending” or any other racist, hate filled, violent speech like that//sarq
