House members offered more security after vandalism attacks, death threats, Hoyer says
WashingtonPost ^ | 3/24/10 | Philip Rucker and Ann Gerhart

Posted on 03/24/2010 2:06:32 PM PDT by Kartographer

At least 10 Democratic members of Congress have been offered increased security attention in the wake of last weekend's health-care vote, House leaders said Wednesday, after some Democrats received death threats and others' congressional offices and Democratic Party campaign offices were vandalized.

Death threats? Why bother. Obviously, they’re already brain dead anyway.

These tyrannical democrats are federalizing 1/6 of our economy... they are increasing an already massive national debt to the point of bankruptcy... they are coming between the American people and their doctors... they are forcing every one in this country to buy insurance or incur a major fine and jail time... they are laying a mountain of additional taxes on a nation that doesn’t have jobs to pay for the current high taxes... and they have accomplished all this by lying, bribing, and trampling the Constitution.

They are destroying the best health care system in the world, they are destroying the greatest nation on earth, and THEY ARE GOING TO FACE THE WRATH OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE... the days of these traitors being their own representatives are over.

Not one word out of those assclowns when Republicans are being threatened, when conservatives are accused of every sort of heinous offense, but if anyone so much as sneezes in their direction or raises their voice, ‘Rats squeal like little girls with a rubber snake in the room.

When the people fear the government, it’s tyranny. When the government fears the people, it’s liberty. I vote for liberty.

These criminals need to live in fear of we the people, that they have carried out serious crimes against.

Here’s what Clyburn had to say. Apparently Mr. Clyburn hasn’t learned a thing has he?

*********************
“If we fail to learn the lessons of our history, we are bound to repeat them,” Clyburn said at a news conference with Hoyer. “I think all of us learned some great lessons from the ‘60s and ‘70s, and there are some lessons that none of us want to repeat, but one thing we know, as Steny Hoyer said, ‘Silence is consent.’ “

Well, are the children of a Congressperson fair game, like Louise Slaughter’s? What about the nephews and nieces of a Congressperson?

The FBI is investigating cut propane lines going into the house of Rep. Tom Perillo’s brother, after the brother’s address was posted by mistake as the Congressman’s.http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0310/34934.html The address was posted on a blog run by a guy affiliated with the Lynchburg (VA) Tea Party, along with an invitation to the readers to stop by and pay this guy a call.

Is this considered opinion of Freepers that the outrage over PPPCA justifies attacks? Is violence justifiable? Would it serve as a defense in a court of law if an arrest is made?

Here’s a question that I’ve been thinking about, because I live in NJ, which has a lot of Dems. How should I treat my neighbors, who are ardent Democrats? They’re nice people and we’ve always gotten along well. How should Conservatives living in areas that are politically mixed behave towards the Libs that they may know?

I am not willing to commit violence against my neighbors or their property because of their political beliefs. Is that the wrong attitude to hold?

A common leftist tactic to gain sympathy. That’s all this is.

Like the spitting and racist name-calling of the Dem reps going into congress -- could it have happened? It's possible. But there is such an absence of supporting evidence, it becomes curious. Why wouldn't the congressthing have scurried to the nearest sympathetic MSM camera to get broadcast proof?

Now that there are claims of death threats, every "me-too monkey" up there will have to come out with claims of their own endangerment, to bolster their 'courage in the face of adversity' Mitty-dom.

Alec Baldwin and Bill Clinton

People are surprised that a supporter of President Clinton would suggest -- no, urge -- that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry Hyde be stoned to death and his family killed.

That's what actor Alec Baldwin reportedly said on a recent airing of "Late Night with Conan O'Brien."

No 'reportedly' about it. He said it in a spittle-flecked rage on Conan's nationally broadcast TV show. Not one word of outrage from a Dem politician or talking head.

Soon they will criminalize all opposition speech. This is a well documented method for silencing all opposition; and will be applied to those who question the new “Hope and Change” program. Hitler and Stalin did the same thing to silence opposition. Welcome to the United Socialist States of America where your freedoms are dictated by party affiliation.
