Democrats, including Rep. Betty McCollum, launched into an assault on incivility Tuesday, saying incendiary words from members of Congress were inflaming tensions that could provoke another incident of Oklahoma City-style domestic terrorism.
"When Members of Congress compare health-care legislation to government tyranny, socialism, or totalitarianism in the hopes of scoring political points it's like pouring gas on the fire of extremism," McCollum said.
McCollum's St. Paul office was one of a few that received an envelope containing gasoline-soaked tatters of an American flag and a letter that called her things not fit for print in this or any publication. Several police departments, including St. Paul and the Capitol Police, are investigating.
"The members of this House Democrats and Republicans have a duty and an obligation to end the dangerous name-calling that can only inspire the extremist militias and phony patriots," McCollum said. "In the most free, prosperous and greatest democracy on earth it is time to return to a civil, decent debate of public policy."
"I dont want another 'Oklahoma City' to ever take place again," McCollum said. "Just as we would not give aid and comfort to al-Qaida, let us not allow the words of elected leaders give comfortable excuses to extremists bent on violence."

And Al Gore was a key influence on the work of the Unabomber. What’s her point?
Wow. Rep. Betty McCollum is not attractive to men.
Anyone who has read any of Tim McVeigh’s writing knows that he would have been far more comfortable at an ANSWER rally than a tea party.
Well, maybe. But it's also telling the truth.
Send her to the chair.
I don’t know, if she worked on her hair, make up, and clothes, and the lighting was darker, she might be semi-presentable.
I notice MSNBC is running a Maddow special with McVeigh interviews. They are doing their best to associate him with Tea Party members. That’s all they got. Seeing as how there have been numerous Tea Parties and no violence, I think they are wasting their time.
“Wow. Rep. Betty McCollum is not attractive to men.”
She kinda looks like a howler monkey.......
Obama inspiring flash mob terrorism (see KC Missouri). There I one upped them.
It's a far uglier period of history than what the Left calls "McCarthyism" and "The Red Scare".
The evil sister of Michelle Bachmannn in the district next to her. The polar opposite, a shrill frump who if she was not connected enough to get elected would be a checkout girl at the St. Paul Whole Foods with a bone through her nose and a 40 year BF who played in “Band”. Liberals are truly Mental Midgets, and our universities are pumping out 100s of thousands of ready little socialists who are on the intellectual level of this idiot and a chimp.
With much emphasis on darkness. And possible alchohol consumption...............
“When Members of Congress compare health-care legislation to government tyranny, socialism, or totalitarianism in the hopes of scoring political points it’s like pouring gas on the fire of extremism,” McCollum said.
Well mzzzz McCollum, when members of one party do a cram down of socialism against the majority wishes of the country it could be like pouring gasoline on the fire of freedom. Geez, does that sound like anyone we know Mzzzz McCollum. Damn, it sucks to be you McCollum.
Should've spoken out AGAINST Code Pink, ANSWER, Communist Party USA, the illegal immigrant rallies, etc. when you had the chance.
As a member of the TEA party movement, I say zero is inspiring a bunch of rouge terrorists waiting to strike. eff you dims.
How they could mistake her for Janet Sterno is beyond me.
