    18 Republican Senators now recieving death threats in Wisconsin

    remember, you gotta be nice to public employee unions....

    ....cause if you're not, they'll hurt you.

    yeesh. what an amazing sense of entitlement these people have; they Really Do Think that they are Owed ever-increasing benefits from the taxpayer.

    State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman said they are among as many as 18 Republican senators who received a death threat following their votes to eliminate most collective bargaining powers for public workers...

    "This is another example of the anger which is being spewed by the government unions," Grothman said. "This has been all about intimidating … Republican legislators into bowing to the public unions, and it has only steeled our resolve."

    Grothman said he is hesitant to completely disregard the threat given the volatile atmosphere in Madison. A note shoved under his door Wednesday night said, "The only good Republican is a dead Republican."..

    Leibham, of Sheboygan, said the threat came to him via e-mail as well, and his staff contacted police at the Capitol and in Madison.

    The letter tells lawmakers to "make your peace with God as soon as possible and say goodbye to your loved ones," warning they will be killed "due to your actions in the last eight weeks."

    The letter, which is signed, says the writer is working with a group of people and knows where the legislators live. It says legislators may be shot in their homes or killed with bombs placed at locations they frequent.

    "We feel that you and the people that support the dictator have to die," the letter reads. "If you and your goonies feel that it's necessary to strip the rights of 300,000 people and ruin their lives, making them unable to feed, clothe, and provide the necessities to their families and themselves then We Will 'get rid of' (in which I mean kill) you."..

    hey, remember when all those violent, racist tea partiers lost the fight over Obamacare, so they wrecked the capital, called for a taxpayer strike, and then started to threatening to bomb buildings full of people?

    yeah. me neither.



    i especially like that they are targeting them in their homes. you stay classy, there, public unions

    well i suppose that he means the kind of folks who would threaten to blow up buildings full of innocent people, pbrauer





    looks like they're also going after the locals:

    That's a nice business you got there. Pity if anything were to happen to it if, say, you didn't toe the line and denounce Governor Walker like we're asking nice-like

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I can't believe the politicians are surprised by this. We've all seen videos of the kind of people they were dealing with.

    This is just some of that civility and "tone" we've been hearing about in Washington D.C. It must be spreading to other parts of the country now.[/sarc]

    Violence against Democrats after Healthcare Bill

    The House Democratic leader, Steny Hoyer of Maryland, said that at least 10 House members were concerned for their personal safety, and a number reported their offices had been vandalised...One caller to the office of Bart Stupak, a Democrat who voted for the legislation, said: "I hope you bleed ... [get] cancer and die." A fax to his office carried a picture of a gallows with "Bart (SS) Stupak" on it and a noose attached.
    It happens anytime a controversial bill is passed.
