Shocking email: Dems threaten Colo. sheriffs’ salaries over gun control
Bizpac Review ^ | 3/10/13 | Michael Dorstewitz

Posted on 03/10/2013 9:42:04 PM PDT by Nachum

The Colorado gun debate is heating up. Companies are threatening to move, rape victims are ridiculed for testifying in committee hearings that they desire guns for self-protection, and potential victims are instructed to rely on rape whistles and call boxes.

Now the state’s sheriffs have entered the fray, expressing support for the Second Amendment, and according to El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, the officers are getting some blowback from the Democratic Party.

In an interview Saturday morning with Jeff Crank on 740 AM KVOR radio, Maketa said 30 Colorado sheriffs went to the state capitol to speak out against restrictive gun control legislation.

The media calling them the “Democratic” party is propaganda. FReepers, as well as people like Rush and Glenn Beck calling them the “Democratic” party as well, are buying into the propaganda. This needs to end.

Why not? It fits what is written in the Communist Manifesto perfectly:
We have seen above that the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to win the battle of democracy.
Of course, the left’s means of “winning” falls way short of honest, but the end justifies the means for them.

Maketa then referred to an email he’d received Wednesday saying “that the Senate Dem Leadership is very upset with the Sheriffs and their opposition to the gun control bills.”

Sheriffs’ salaries are set by state lawmakers upon the recommendation of a salary commission’s findings, he explained. “But the Dems have been dangling [the salary bill] out there and refusing to follow their own created commissions’ recommendations. They’ve put it off now for two years.”

The Senate Democrats, Maketa told Crank, were “very upset” with his “testimony in opposition on the gun bills. And they are stating that, basically, we should reconsider our position to gain a more favorable light for salary support from the Dems.”

The sheriff said he was “absolutely outraged by that. Number one, the salary bill for elected officials is a mandate of the legislature. Creating gun control is not a mandate, and in this case, there is no factual basis for it. And I made it very clear that I felt it was almost bordering extortion, attempted influence of a public official, but more so that we would be sacrificing our morals and principles in what we know is the right thing to do.”

Recall is being initiated against 2 more CO Dems, John Morse and Evie Hudak.

“Anyone in the Colorado Springs area come to the Broadmoor Hotel tonight at 7pm. We’re having a meeting about beginning the recall process on John Morse and Evie Hudak.

We’ve already filed the official paperwork on Mike McLachlan and signature gathering begins next week.

We can also now take donations towards the recall efforts of these “legislators” that would destroy our freedoms.

This is not going to play well in rural counties. Sheriffs are all elected officials and obviously enjoy the support of their constituents. That is also true in urban counties too come to think of it. These turds are playing with fire.

Prediction:

They are going to ram all of these unconstitutional laws through. 1 million protestors could show up at the capital and they would still do it. They know if every damn one of them gets thrown out of office that the [insert profanity here] Republicans will never repeal the laws. They never do.

The courts? Please, don't make me laugh.

Oh right. I am going to stand there with a rape whistle for the rapist to take away from me. As he is raping me; he is whistling that frigging whistle.

The only time I have ever seen a whistle be effective is when you get one of those heavy breather freaks on the phone. Blow that whistle into the phone. The sucker won’t know what hit him as he is probably deaf by then.

"The media calling them the “Democratic” party is propaganda. FReepers, as well as people like Rush and Glenn Beck calling them the “Democratic” party as well, are buying into the propaganda. This needs to end."

Yes. That really rubs me the wrong way too. It is liberal propaganda that has permeated our society to the point that it is commonly accepted. I point it out often, IT IS THE DEMOCRAT party, NOT the democratic party. Although interestingly they are more often than not the hypocritic party.

The cause and effect here can’t just disappear into the ether. First they insult veterans and now they try to blackmail county Sheriffs. The gun forums, vets forums and now the LEO forums must be buzzing like mad with activity.

I’m not too familiar with CO sheriffs, but if the counties pay them, who are these clowns in the state legislature trying to threaten with loss of pay? Sheriffs do not work for the state of CO, they work for their respective counties. Time to put these bastards behind bars for threats and extortion.

Not shocking. Just the People’s Republic of Denver and related red bloc counties.

The sheriffs should investigate the hell out of the extortion email. Perp walk the suspects to a sheriff’s department for questioning, in front of all the cameras.

Then say that they cannot comment about an ongoing investigation of alleged political extortion. Let the press name those who are brought in for questioning, and someone provide pictures of these lucky Democrats.

Let’s play the same game they do, but only smarter. And if someone published the home addresses and license plate numbers of those involved in the extortion effect, so be it. After all, it is public information (i.e. the phone book, etc), just like the names of registered gun owners in New York is.

Two can play at this game, but we have to be more informed, have a better message, and do it legally, unlike the Democrats.

The Democrat leftist lunatics have come out of the woodwork like Red Termites. Time to call the Orkin Man (the internet) to deal with them.

I wish I could argue with a single word of that. Have you ever noticed how often representatives of the Democratic [sic] party need to burn villages to save them? I think they just like destroying villages.

Have you seen an electoral map of Colorado lately?

I was looking at the state senate districts. Only 7 of these encompass all of the rural areas in Colorado, or 20% (there are 35 senators in Colorado, each from a single member district). The other 28 districts are in the Pueblo-Colorado Springs-Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins corridor.

The ‘Rats therefore must believe that they can afford to flip off the rural areas.
