Breaking : Bomb threat against Tea Party organizers
Hot Air ^ | SEPTEMBER 11, 2009 | ED MORRISSEY

Posted on 09/12/2009 12:28:52 PM PDT by RobinMasters

The Washington DC Tea Party appears to be a big success, but it’s not for lack of trying among the movement’s more lunatic opponents. Yesterday, the DC Metro police evacuated the offices of Freedomworks after several threats, including a bomb-threat phone call that police considered credible enough to investigate:

Tens of thousands of anti-big government activists are expected in Washington on Saturday as part of a “March on Washington” being organized by FreedomWorks, a conservative group headed by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas.

A FreedomWorks staffer told ABC News that the organization’s offices at 601 Pennsylvania Avenue were evacuated on Friday afternoon by DC Metro Police because of a bomb scare.

DC Metro police has confirmed to ABC News’ Jason Ryan that the DC Metro police had, indeed, evacuated the organization’s offices after being told by the organization that it had received a bomb threat.

Is this the MSM making the “news” again?

or was it caused by some of AG Holder’s
“above-all-laws” shock troops?

or was it caused some of the thousand taxpayer-funded ACORN thugs taking time off from Brothel-collecting?

or was it another Chicago union attacker hungry for fingers?

To any libtard lurkers: You and your ilk really don't want to bring violence into all this. Trust me, you do NOT want to go there!

PS This is NOT a threat. I am too old and too law-abiding to go there myself. However, it is clear from the level of true anger (cf the left's manufactured anger) that any violence by leftist nutjobs is sure to meet harsh retaliation. You can bank on it.

I wonder, do bomb threats ever mean anything? If you really wanted to blow stuff up, why would you warn people?

“Breaking : Bomb threat against Tea Party organizers”

A bomb threat against main-stream Americans?

Time for the FBI to pay a visit to those bomb-makers Bill Ayers
and his lovely (/sarc) wife Bernadine Dohrn.

“They really have no clue what these protests are about do they?”

While not accurate, “anti-government” is close enough to anti-Big Government not to offend. They aren’t anarchists, but I’d rather be known as an anarchist than anti-Democrat, anti-Obama, or a “radical” right-wing racist militia member.

I am not sure. I am feeling pretty "government hostile" these days. It is not Obama, I am sick at heart at the embedded corruption going on.

I am beyond "Re-elect nobody" and have advanced to "Fire EVERYBODY".

Yes.

Because if you blow things up you can be "guilty as sin, free as a bird" but you blow up people your butt is going to jail.

TAKE ACTION NOW - NO MORE SITTING ON THE SIDELINES
The thing we have to do now, without any hesitation, is vote out this current Congress in 2010. Then take back our Nation in 2012. If we do not mobilize ourselves and others now to do this in ways far beyond where most of us have ever engaged in political matters, we will lose this country. And have ourselves to blame.
FRIENDS, WE CAN NO LONGER JUST 'PREACH TO THE CHOIR' -- WE MUST CARRY THIS MESSAGE TO ALL WE KNOW AND ACT NOW. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
