A Post Stolen From My Good Friend Nash
Taken directly and entirely from my good friend nashtbrutusandshort's blog, Categorical Aperitif:
Culture of LIFE!
Telling a Congressman to "bleed out your ass, get cancer and die."
Using racist epithets and sending pictures of nooses.
Cutting the propane line to someone's house—someone whose address someone else posted online, obviously to encourage acts of intimidation. Oh, and shrugging off the news that it was actually the intended target's brother's family's house with "Oh, well, collateral damage."
Running away from reporters when questioned about one's violent rhetoric.
Blaming the violence and threats on Obama and the Democrats: By not doing what we want, they're forcing us to threaten them. Or something. (Honestly, there are eight-year-olds who would be embarrassed to be caught using such an excuse.)
Oh, and suggesting that Democrats are just "trying to score political points by talking about the threats in public." Apparently, when Democrats are threatened, they're supposed to take it and like it.
Can't you feel the reverence for life and freedom? It's a good thing that America has people so devoted to these things that they'll wish miserable deaths on people, hurl racist invective at them, cut the propane lines to their houses, etc. and then blame it all on somebody else, huh? Surely we must be grateful to have such paragons of moral and intellectual leadership scattered throughout our land.
I'd like to call this behavior childish, but I fear that would be an insult to children.
