Posted on 01/12/2011 1:25:58 PM PST by Nachum
After blaming the tea party for the mass slaughter on Saturday one tea party leader is receiving death threats. The sheriffs office told Tucson tea party leader Trent Humphries to stay home.
The Tuscon Tea Party leader started receiving death threats since the shootings at the Safeway on Saturday. Talking Points Memo reported, via Free Republic:
Trent Humphries, the leader of the largest tea party group in this mourning southern Arizona city, has nothing but praise for the way President Obama has led the nation through the aftermath of Saturdays mass shooting at a constituent event for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ). But Humphries wont be there tonight when Obama speaks at a memorial rally intended to unify Tucson after six people were killed in the tragedy.
Humphries says hes been getting threats at his home from people who seem to hold him and his organization partially responsible for the shootings Saturday.
Humphries told TPM hes called the Sheriffs department more than once in the past few days to make them aware of threatening phone calls.

Obviously TEA Party members eating their own < /s>
Thanks to the Marxist MSM!
Mr. Humphreys, take your weapon when you leave home. Take advantage of the 2d Amd. Protect yourself from coward liberals who do not have the guts to face you. They can only shoot you in the back. Dimocrats are cowards. Liberals are cowards. Pure and simple. Cowards.
Radicals like Deputy Dupenuts are stirring up more violence, and they should be held responsible for agitating the leftist lunatics.
It appears as though “Sheriff” Dipstik’s vitriol and heated rhetoric is starting to take hold in his “Mecca of prejudice and bigotry”.
“Humphries told TPM hes called the Sheriffs department more than once in the past few days to make them aware of threatening phone calls.”
Good to be on record, but with that Sheriff death threats don’t get past his doughnut and cup of coffee apparently as the killer Loughner was reported to the Sheriff for death threats multiple times prior to the shootout at the Safeway store.
There’s a war coming
Get up. Get out. Go to work. This cannot stand!
The propaganda is achieving its desired end. Not just intimidating your opponents, but making sure your own don’t consider changing sides, don’t listen to Palin, don’t listen to the tea party folks.
Most of the violence in America comes from the Left and has for decades. This administration is the first, though, to openly promote physical intimidation of its opponents as a tactic.
The thugs and revolutionaries around Obama are kicking this game up to a whole new level. Blood libel has consequences and the consequences are premeditated and intentional. And self-justifying.
Seems the narrative is working in part.
The unhinged will start attacking the Tea party.
Yeah, I don’t think he wants to carry at the memorial service. ‘Tea Partier Brings Gun To Obama Event’. He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t.
It appears as though Sheriff Dipstiks vitriol and heated rhetoric is starting to take hold in his Mecca of prejudice and bigotry.
The only media influences Loughner had were violent Hollywood films and Violent California Video games.
Both are major DNC political campaign contributors.
I think an aggressive analysis from where those “threats” come from might be interesting.....
The left inciting hatred and violence again.
If this was the Pima County Sheriffs dept. then this is the first time the Dupnik headed dept. has been proactive in the face of death threats.
Interesting that they chose to "help" a conservative by restricting his movements.
The Sherriff is the one who’s responsible for it, because for all of the nonsense that he’s been spreading about the whole incident, it’s been HIM and his side that have riled up the kooks. he should be ashamed of himself.
That's what they want. Glenn, and others, have been warning us against taking any action, because the want us to take action. That'll give them all the reason they need to clamp down.
And other Republicans being forced to resign...
This needs to be sent to all in media. etc. THis makes me so mad!
The fuse is lit. It’s only a matter of time before it hits powder.
Headline seems a tiny bit misleading. Humphries called them “threatening phone calls”. No use of the word “death”.
I’m sure Deputy Dupa would **love** it if conservatives stayed home. Then you’d hear about how many Tea-Partiers stayed home.
Case closed. Any fair judge would need no more evidence.
They were SO hoping this Loughner was a “right wing Tea Party nutcase” so that they could use the power of the state to persecute their ideological opponents.
Pacifism in the face of overt aggression will not win this fight.
MSNBC-especially Chris Matthews- has a big hand in this.
Not surprising after three days of the MSM, Dem pols and “Oatmeal for Brains” Sheriff Dupenik doing everything they can to foster hatred and anger towards TEA Party conservatives.
At this point in time I personally do not trust Sheriff Dupa to be a Crossing Guard.
Tea Party members have demonstrated that we solve problems at the ballot box.
Liberals, Progressives, Socialists? Well you decide.
Who has engaged in violent acts so far? Liberals or conservatives?
That'll give them all the
reason excuse they need to clamp down.
I think you mean 'excuse.' The left has been stretching credibility to the enth degree for years trying to blame every act of violence on conservatives and then they call for more restrictive laws on firearms and speech. That indicates that they already have a reason for clamping down. Their premeditation is clear.
Sound familiar ?
No one’s recommending you not defend yourself against aggression; Glenn carries a gun, I carry a gun.
If you’re ready to march out and start a war, a revolution, go ahead — that’s fine — see where it gets you, and the country.
Hey, I don’t disagree with you one bit. But, if you think revolution’s the answer, a war in the streets, I disagree.
They’re desperate, and on the ropes. One more election and they’ll lose power for decades. Their insane ramblings, nonsense, and violence damages their brand more and more every day.
There’s a war coming, all right, but it’s at the ballot box in 2012; the upcoming election may be the most important we’ll ever see.
Anthony Miller was a McCain supporter in the recent Senate race and apparently believed that the Tea Party was responsible for the shootings on Saturday, and resigned before they came to shoot him. What an idiot.
Not the Tea Party but a Black Rino and a couple of others in Arizona are claiming they got death threats and are quitting their jobs. Rinos are trying to eat the Tea Party.
I think they are angry over losing the battle over immigration enforcement. He resigned in time for Obama’s show. He did not present any evidence like a police reports documenting death threats so I don’t beleive him.
The fuse was lit sometime ago. The only question is what is on the other end. A fire cracker or a bomb.
I think it is inevitable. Especially if every accusation they make is met with mea culpas and other submissive gestures. I expect Republicans will have an historic victory in the 2012 election. I don't think it will solve the problem of the increasing dissolution of Constitutional rule. More to the point, it won't stop liberals from provoking violence. I expect them to increase it.
More like house arrest.
Kinda like the gestapo making the Jews stay in the ghetto.
What really puzzles me though is that you ignored both of the points I originally made to you and instead replied based on an assumption that I want a revolution. An assumption that is entirely erroneous FWIW.
My apologies, TigersEye — I misunderstood, and I’m guessing now you were saying a war is coming, but it’s coming from the Left.
I did agree, however, with your initial points — that the violence and rhetoric comes primarily from the Left, and they’ll use any excuse to push their agenda. I agree completely, but misunderstood the intent behind your post.
And I agree they’ll continue — even ramp up — the rhetoric, tantrums, and violence, but it’s nothing new; they’ve been doing it for time on end, especially when they’re out of power.
However, they can win without anyone firing a shot if they can intimidate enough of us into staying at home. If 0bamaCare is not soundly repealed it will be all over. The economy will fail, medicine will be forever ruined and the philosophy of law will turn away from individual liberty to collective rights. That change in legal philosophy will not remain confined to matters of health care. We will know if 0bamaCare survives before Nov. 2012.
