Meanwhile Rush Limbaugh receives numerous death threats without one news account of it.

I don’t condone violence or the threat of violence in the slightest....but the only thing that surprises me is that this hasn’t been happening FAR more than it already has.

I think it will increase, frankly. People are WAY too fed up.

How is it that the government can stop a citizen from making a phone call, but cannot stop the barage of phone calls I get from various investment corporations on a daily basis?

My congresssewerscum claims to have gotten a death threat as well.

Someone from outside the district called and said he hopes he dies young. The guy left a voice mail with his phone number. I suspect it was one of his purple people beater constituents.

These stories do serve to tell the masses that people are indeed very angry at these dirtbags.

Meanwhile, more people identify with the TEA people than with the usurper.

The ironic part is that in the old days this guy would be an isolated nut job. Toady he is probably a normally sane member of society who feels about the same as most of us about “stretch”. He just took it one (and only one) step farther than most of us would ... for now.

From what I read, it was probably no worse than usual. She's just trying to use this situation to further her efforts to paint the tea partiers as bad.

I know a man who’s teen age son sent a threat to Clinton. The Secret Service paid him a visit while he and wife were on 25th anniversary cruise. Imagine getting that call.

The secret service did nothing except give a strong warning that reverberated through his school and the community.

The SS Agent told hi they were getting 40 such threats a day to run down.

Public officials threatened are handled differently than by celebrities.
If the guy threatens Pelosi to work like heck to remove her butt from office then good.
I didn't get what the guy said, but if he made a death threat or threat against her family, then shame on him and he will get the FBI at the door IMO.

You forgot the sarcasm tag.

She favors the murdering of innocent babies. What is so "presidential" about that?

I have never understood people making threatening phone calls, not even against someone like her Majesty. They idiots who do it have to know that they are going to get caught. My god it's Nancy Pelosi, I wouldn't be surprised if she has MSNBC answering her phone so she doesn't have to waste time calling them and telling them about it. And her name is NANCY, that alone is a complete give away!

Not so many if you start the public executions early in the process.

Never forget, to a liberal, "disagreement" = "Threat",

And by them not "disclosing" the details, that's probably all it was, him giving her a piece of his mind...NOT against the law as long as he didn't include any actual threats to her or her family.

But, oblammo is looking for someone to make and example of...so it will probably be blown to high heaven and back.

My bet? It is happening far more than we know, only kept quiet. Think about it, if they let that type of info loose (increase in death threats), many more will become emboldened. The way it is now, most think it is not happening at all.

Threats are wrong-headed and accomplish nothing - other than giving the FBI another job to do.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.

Officials? Official what?

Official tax parasite doing nothing but begging the press to keep his name a secret?

Were paying this government tax parasite to pass on rumor bull sh*t, in the hallway, about one of their arrogant, overpaid, insider government frauds?

They all make me sick....

What was the threat?

Ring, ring ...

"Speaker Pelosi's office ... "
(Yeah, I know ... it never happens that quick .. a little literary license here, folks ... )

"Hi, my name is Rufus T Firefly and I used to write for Saturday Night Live while living in San Francisco, and I would like to say that I will not be voting for the Speaker this election because of her stand on the health care bill."

AAAKKK !!! HELP ! .. HELP !! .. THERE'S A MANIAC ON THE LOOSE ... MY CALLER ID HAS THE ADDRESS ... HELP !! POLICE .. POLICE ...
