Channel 7 in Miami just put as the VERY FIRST THING in their NEWSCAST numerous "threats" to Democrats by "activists".

One congressjerk's BROTHER had his gas line cut, and Congresscritter's home addresses and phone numbers are being published by unnamed "activists".

Folks, this looks and smells a lot like a gestapo press trying to work with Hussein's punks to stop our right to assemble and to label all of us as "terrorists"....when a local newscast begins to broadcast such vague accusations, it is bound to lead to fearmongering.

Speak out, folks: we are not terrorists nor are we dangerous.

Huh? You guys have adoring crowds awaiting you back home after your Historic passage of screwing every hard working American out of their labor!

This is a favorite tactic of the Alinsky Left.
They do it to bankers and traditional marriage supporters
all the time.

I’ve turned off the media, including the crap spewing from FoxNews. I just don’t care to hear bs fed to me any more. Hopefully Fox rediscovers their way, but they have been awful lately.

Should have thought about those repercussions before you went against the WILL of the people Steny Hoyer...

BUT alas... yawn!!

libs are most likely paranoid... or lying, like Congressman Lewis and the racial slurs which were disproved with video tape...

Only democrats?

Maybe Karl Rove and Dick Cheney or Sarah Palin could come in and give them some tips about personal safety in the face of death threats.

This sounds like a a prelude to muzzle talk radio to stop conservative “hate speech” and to intimidate GOP leaders from associating with the Tea Party

PS: Have they ever found out who burned down Sarah Palin’s church in Wasilla?

I've had the TV news mostly off for years.

I watch about 5-10 minutes or so a month and sometimes not even that (usually I catch part of a FOX panel...that's it).

You CAN live on internet news alone. And I think you will be more informed.

How would anyone know where his brother lived, or that it was a "Tea Party Activist" who cut his gas line?

Yet Shepard Smith spent several minutes berating his audience for his belief that this is spiraling out of control.

Sticks and stones break bones but names don’t hurt.

They should be fearing the bricks and stones.

They need to be fearful after the destruction they have wrought.

The dimoKKKRATS are playing the victim card. They started it by lying about the racial slurs from the teaparty members at the Capitol. They and there allies in the media are trying to swing public sympathy over to them. Things are getting nastier as these people will do whatever it takes to remain in power.

Yep. The racial slur lying was picked up and promoted without a shred of proof and it’s spiraled from there.

They are repeating the same lies from Sunday.

I still haven't seen the video/heard audio of anyone saying the ‘N’ word. The dems should be afraid of trampling the rights of the people, because that is exactly what they're doing. That being said, I don't advise people to protest using signs of lawmakers in the cross hairs. Keep to the issues of the constitution, liberty, freedom, and govt. spending us into debt that it can't repay.

I Watch Special Report, especially the panel. A large part of what is reported has been thoroughly digested on Free Republic already and perhaps even the previous day.

And a rep’s brother found his gas grill line dangling, on his screened-in porch. Obviously republican tea partiers.

We must identify these people, warn them that they are being watched, and tel the extremists to be silent, or they will be jailed.

Um because they obviously represent a violent threat, like Cokie’s “hulking” republican.

Instead of one reichstag fire, we will have thousands of little media events until “the public” thinkks TEA party members are too dangerous to be allowed to run free.

Shame on the news media for perpetuating this Alinsky tactic - by the Marxists that have just overthrown our Republic. Here’s a review:

- - - - -

ALINKSY’S 13 RULES OF POWER TACTICS

1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

2. Never go outside the experience of your people. It may result in confusion, fear and retreat.

3. Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear and retreat.

4. Make the enemy live up to his/her own book of rules.

5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

8. Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it.

Why, you take the time to shut off the gas,
go inside the house and open a valve to drain the line,
go back outside and cut the line,
then turn the gas back on.

They should be afraid for their safety. When your government is your enemy, it is the duty of the citizens to overthrow that government.

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”

That didn’t take long.

Those lily-livered cowards (aka Democrats) are now trying to avoid the consequences of going against the will of the majority of the people they were elected to represent.

I hope they’re all looking over their shoulders from now until Election Day.

That is when we get our revenge—legally, peacefully, and morally.
