Link to Newspaper is:

This is their "top story".

Some are posting comments under the article that this is a hate crime for what this newspaper has done.

Drudgereport.com is posting link right now, so this has "worldwide visibility"...

I glad I am not one of them. That paper building would not stand long.

it would be great to get the addresses of the reporters and editors of that newspaper, take pics of their houses and post it somewhere.

Tolerant liberals. Already planing to round up the capitalists and the revolution hasn't been finalized yet.

Should a newspaper print pictures of people's homes and addresses just because they support Republican candidates.

Sounds like a way to threaten and intimidate people.

Seattle is a blue state area... So this is way over the line...

Title of their article is Hell Houses

If you make it easy for people to click on the link, it might endanger these folks.

Bad enough Matt Drudge links to it, but it should give visibility.

Do you have what it takes to drive a stake through the heart of zombie Dino Rossi or blast a shotgun into the chest of zombie Dave Reichert or fight off the reanimated ashes of Steve Litzow, swirling out of that terrifying urn? Run.

This is clearly an incitement to murder. The Washington State Police need to visit this newspaper and demand that they retract the article, and closely and vigorously interrogate the author. This is WAY over the line.

If you're a Republican in this climate, and don't own a gun (or several guns), you are clearly insane.

I ride a bicycle a fair amount, Seattle is a mecca for bicyclists and starbuck’s and all that, it is repugnant, tree huggers and all, give folks who really bike for exercise and transportation a bad name, giddy mucks and the paper has a red star in it’s name. Fools.

The photographers and writers associated with this piece should be taken into the closest public square and beaten. This intimidation of Conservatives and Republicans by the media and "liberal" groups has go to be stopped as in now!

The other side should fear riots if zero is elected based upon fraudulent ballots and yellow journalism!

Yours is probably the best comment on my thread so far.

You hit a topher home run

Of course, that is only my opinion...

Good grief. Throwing reporters off planes for endorsing McCain, investigating Joe the Plumber, publishing addresses of people with Republican yard-signs ...

This is Stalinist. And they called Bush’s tactics “authoritarian”?

Yeah. We have one here that originates from Boulder (Mini-Seattle) called Westword. Not fit to blow one's nose into, IMHO.

Pretty dodgy newspaper, if you ask me. Does it cater specifically to poofters? It seems to.

The Stranger is a radical newspaper with a pro-gay, pro-environmental interest agenda and is not taken seriously by very many. It’s most read columnist is Dan Savage, a gay man who gives sex advice. It is one of those free publications that is mostly advertising.

If the local MSM makes a big deal out of this thuggy move, Obama will "throw them off the plane"... The MSM knows who butter their bread - and who feeds them the good stories...

And if you doubt me, ask why the two hardest questions asked of Obama were by a plumber named Joe and a builder named Tito.

I have already contacted the FBI -- since being out of state -- is how I found out about it.

I imagine the DEA might find some goodies in these folks houses...

I also emailed the president/vp. There is a trick to try to get someone to read these by a clever title line (which should be valid).

Maybe some Freepers with Washington connections might help FBI/BATF get involved, and perhaps DEA (the scoop up the newspaper's candy they have stashed)...

This was discussed on the David Bose show yesterday. I hope someone sues the living heck out of them

I haven't seen even one McCain/Palin sign out here. I think they either get vandalized or the people are afraid to put them up in the first place.

Apologies about not posting links, but we have lurkers that might use this to find those houses...

Just make it harder until Law Enforcement might possibly be able to act...

This is an awkward thread...

I literally posted it about 5 seconds before my time expired at the Library (more bandwidth to use)...
