Fox News: Man Arrested Over Death Threat Against Rep. Eric Cantor
Monday, March 29, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/29/2010 9:21:46 AM PDT by kristinn

Fox News just ran a short story announcing a man was arrested for threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)and his family. If I heard correctly, the threat was made in a YouTube video.

Nothing on the wires yet...

Thanks for posting kristinn. I have been searching the net for an article to post but none have been written yet.

Hmmmm, I didn’t know it was illegal to threaten the life of a Republican, or even carry it out. You learn something new every day.

Are we sure it wasn’t just a “random” death threat that happened to hit Cantor?

They’ll say he’s a right wing nut who’s angry with Cantor because he didn’t do enough to stop obamacare.

He is one of my favorite Congressmen. I saw it and I’m betting it is either because he is a GOP or Jewish or both. At the rate we’re going, we’ll never get good, honest folks to run for office. Seems I heard him say he was the only Jewish person in the House of Rep. Probably set some idiot off to get rid of him. :(

I hope they THROW the book at this person and lock ‘em up and throw away the keys.

Stay safe Representative Cantor and your lovely family.

The poor dear must be confused. I’m sure he thought Cantor voted FOR HCR. Only right wing lunatics are violent or hateful against poor socialists that just want to give us the “gift of health care reform”.

There’s just no way he realized that Cantor is a Republican. It just can’t happen!

This was obviously just a stray threat that hit Cantor randomly, probably meant for someone else.

I gotta say, considering Obama the Magnificent (whose intelligence is beyond comprehension by the mere working masses)was to usher in an era of peaceful co-existance, there are many people not getting with the program.

I have never seen such division in America, and terrorists still want to kill everyone in the western world.

"Seems I heard him say he was the only Jewish person in the House of Rep."

No, no. There are many Jews in both the House & the Senate. but, Cantor is the only Jewish Republican in the House.

I'm not sure if there are any Jewish Senators who are Republican. But, none come to mind, if there are.

Come on, the threat was accidental and the person threatened the air, it just happened to land on Eric Cantor.

They’ll figure out some way to say he was a Tea Partier.

He shot a gun at a house. Everyone knows liberals hate guns, so he must have been a Tea Partier. /sarcasm

I'm surprised that a leading Jewish Congressman being threatened with murder in the Passover season isn't news anywhere else. I am truly surprised. Really.

Well, he is a Republican so I guess that explains it.

Ofcourse not. The msm will NEVER get their panties in a wad over a certified threat to a Repub.

Notice the massive coverage of the nutcases in Where ever.

Martha took it to a new high with her hysterical breathlessness calling them “Christian” militia people.

Never even a hint about the Islamofscist embeded in the u.S.

I will watch NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, or MSNBC tonight and get all the details on this story - - hahahahahahahahah
I just made a joke!!! They will give this story about 5 seconds if they give it any time at all. However, if this arrest was because of a threat to Jesse Jackson Jr, or Barney Frank, it would undoubtedly be the lead story on all of the evening news!!!

The MSM’s desire to see violence is going to end up getting someone killed.
As of right now, they are the most seditious agitators in the USA.
If there is a “revolution” it should be to overthrow the propagandist talking heads rather than the government.

I think this might ha been part of the “right Wing Militia” groups they raided this weekned.

This probably was anti-Jewish thing.

Didn't the police recently find that a bullet shot into a Republican lawmaker's campaign office was 'accidental' just by looking at it?

I think the MSM can determine accident or intent by the affiliation of the lawmaker.

It depends on what "threat" is.

Us angry people may call it a threat, but it may just be a "parody" or "comedy", the typical Hollywood Left Wing answer to anything hateful that comes from that aisle.

With Fox’s (world) record of inaccuracy in breaking news stories, they’d be right to wait for a second source.

The perp's name is Norman Leboon. A quick search shows some weirdness out there.

TPM has the statement from the U.S. Attorney for Philadelphia and a supporting affidavit:

SNIP

4. On March 26, 2010, the FBI, San Francisco Division, received a copy of a video that had been removed from the internet website YouTube. The video included images of a white male, later identified as NORMAN LEBOON, making threats against United States Congressman Eric Cantor, 7th Congressional District - Virginia. The video appeared to be homemade and was of good quality. The face of the white male can clearly be seen. statements:

5. During the video NORMAN LEBOON made the following "My Congressman Eric Cantor, and you and your cupcake evil wife..." "Remember Eric...our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy ****ing pig, you're an abomination, you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations." (edited by Kristinn for clarity, profanity.)

SNIP

We're all having a good time ridiculing the commie dopes, but if you remember back, they actually did the same thing when a nutcase got all the way into Tom Delay's office in the Capitol and shot two policemen on the way in. IIRC one of those cops INSIDE TOM DELAY'S OFFICE killed or seriously injured the perp--enough to stop him.

Then the idiots put out a news story that the perp was probably REALLY after Gephardt. It was obvious that that was true too. After all, there was a stairway near Delay's office that led to Gephardt's office which was on a different floor...

I heard on the news that the shot that hit his office was just “randomly fired.” Wow, what a coincidence to first be targeted randomly and now this. Maybe this threat was directly randomly at Cantor too.

Yes, a stray bullet, perhaps fired in celebration at a Taliban wedding.
