EXCLUSIVE: Unredacted Death Threat Letter to Stephanie Miller
EXCLUSIVE: Unredacted Death Threat Letter to Stephanie Miller
Profanity-Laced Missive from Right Winger Sent After Popular Radio Host's Recent Appearance on Fox 'News', Says 'Would be Happy to See AK-47 Send You Into Eterntity

Miller Calls America-Loving Wingnut On Air, Man Claims Letter Wasn't a Threat

A man from Centerville, Ohio, identifying himself as "Sock" Sokolowski has sent a death threat to radio host Stephanie Miller after a recent appearance on Fox "News'" Hannity & Colmes.

The BRAD BLOG has obtained a copy of the profanity-laced letter from Sokolowski which includes a closing salutation claiming that he is "From the right 'Right". The letter is posted, unredacted in full at the end of this article.

On her popular Stephanie Miller Show this morning, the radio host telephoned "Sock" who included his address and phone number with the letter to confront him live and on air about the letter.

Despite the numerous clear threats in the letter, Sokolowski who opens the letter by writing "As with Cindy Sheehan the best thing that could happen to you would be seeing some WONDERFUL activist sticking an AK-47 up your Glory Holes and sending you into eternity" claimed several times during the phone call that he didn't threaten Miller in the letter.

Writing that "I am a paci-fist", Sokolowski typed "this is not a threat" before he went on to write that he hopes and prays "that someone decides you're better off as statistics."

"Honestly," the letter continues referring to both the radio host and Sheehan, who lost her son in the War on Iraq, "should I hear of either you leaving this earth prematurely I would initiate a personal celebration that would make Animal House appear to be just another quiet Sunday in church."

Promising to to mail copies of Miller's H&C appearance to "some WONDERFUL people", Sokolowski threatens that "we must identify this nation's enemies and though we keep friends close, we MUST keep our enemies even closer and you two vile bitches are just that."

Referring to both women as "mother fuckers," Sokolowski writes that he hopes for further exposure for both Miller and Sheehan on "TV showsas GUARANTEED your words will someday possibly accelerate your demise."

He concludes that he "would love to celebrate and would for days on end as I would and will when still another America HATER meets his/her maker."

The Stephanie Miller Show has said that they will be posting a profanity-free version of the letter at StephanieMiller.com shortly. The BRAD BLOG, however, is happy to post the entire unredacted letter exclusively at the URL belowOnly the phone number and address have been removed

If you do it for JEEEESUSSSSS! then it's not terrorism, by definition.

7. If you really want to know
Whitepages.com--search Centerville Ohio for Sokolowski.

It is hard to keep public information secret on the internets.

There could be more than one Sokolowski in Centerville Ohio.

38. I told you all just this last weekend, but oh no it's only the nuts...
and most Americans don't care about politics.

I told you, some really scary is about to happen in America, because if we win back Congress you know the nuts on the other side won't like that. It will make the crazies come out in full force, like poor Ms. Miller witnessed herself.

5. Utterly charming LTTE from the "Sock Puppet"
All right, I admit it: I was hoping to scare up the address and phone, not that I would've posted it, you understand -- but I did run across this little gem:

http://www.daytoncitypaper.com/print.php?sid=2193

CONSERVATISM IS
WINNING THE WAR
Although your paper is, obviously, extremely liberal, as exemplified by the extreme leftist letters you customarily publish, I trust you will, out of a sense of fair and balanced journalism, consider printing the following. We appreciate your consideration but, naturally, I probably have the same chance of a snowball surviving in Hell!
I, and several associates, are very much involved with the recruitment of potential first-time voters into the Republican Party and, consequently, meet with college "kids," "oldies," and everyone in between age-wise. We speak with independents, moderates and all degrees of wannabe leftists and rightists, and so I (we) get a diverse range of views and opinions.
We have found, almost without exception, that the negativity and pessimism shown by the Left turns many off while the optimism and positive attitudes of the Right appeals to their personal anticipation of the future. They look at a glass as half full, not half empty, because they opt for rose-colored glasses, the reading kind, over blinders and sunglasses. The liberal media and Washington D.C. insiders don't "make it" with the people we talk with as they disassociate themselves from the fantasy world of politics.
Conservatism is winning the war, as seen in elections at all levels local, state, and federal as you see states such as Minnesota and Wisconsin, previously guarantees for the Democrats' column, with each passing election coming closer to being red in color.
Our Allen/Condi ticket in 2008, my guess, will defeat the Hillary/anyone ticket because independents, moderates, Reagan Democrats (and blacks) will vote in decisive numbers for the Right. We'll also raise extraordinary amounts of money and easily offset Howard Dean's plans, and what a wonderful appointment that was for our side.

"Sock" Sokolowski
Centerville


Allen/Condi?! I can hear it now: "I'm going to let Vice President Macaca answer that..." :rofl:

Sock, if you're lurking, get some help. Now. Actually, if the authorities do their job and follow up on the threat to Stephanie, it may already be too late.

8. I guess he thinks the letter was optimistic and positive then?

It's really sad how some people are so far gone... how did this happen? What kind of parents did these idiots have???

40. That was my favorite line as well
It never ceases to amaze me how the right keeps it's positive attitude and optimism in the middle of a war with hundreds of thousands dead, the stripping of the constitution, the removal of civil rights, etc, etc... Oh wait, I forgot, Wal-Mart has a special on heaters this week!

Except for the hyphen in pacifist. Anyway, as far as 1st Amendment rights go, using the Post Office to threaten some or to incite others to violence is a Federal offense.

All Steph's doing is reading his words back to him and he's denying that it's a threat.

He really is a Republican.

42. Here's the whole text of the letter
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 03:34 PM by Fighting Irish
I typed it up verbatim and put it up on my site:

Saturday - 10/14/06

The Fox Channel
Hannity & Colmes - 9-10PM EST
Attn: Stephanie Miller
Fox Guest & Cindy Sheehan Supporter
Program of Friday, October 13, 2006
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036


Dear Stephanie:

As with Cindy Sheehan the best thing that could happen to you would be seeing some WONDERFUL activist sticking an AK-47 up your Glory Holes and sending you into eternity. But this is not a threat as I am a paci-fist preferring to confront dumb fucks like you two cunts with words rather than violence. But I would gather my 1st amendment rights permit me to HOPE (!) and PRAY (!) that someone decides you're better off as statistics. Honestly, should I hear of either you leaving this earth prematurely I would initiate a personal celebration that would make Animal House appear to be just another quiet Sunday in church.

However, again an exercise of my individual rights even a liberal Supreme Court can't take away. I will be mailing copies of your appearance on yesterday's Hannity & Colmes to some WONDERFUL people. Without including a cover letter and without a return address we will be mailing copies of your anti-American rhetoric together with any personal information we can cull off the Net to the following recipients. Receivers will be families and friends of others lost in Iraq but who believe their sons/daughters died nobly, others with a SPECIAL fervor and fire-in-their -belly for this country and who totally and completely despise reengades as yourself and, too, several others whose "credentials" I will keep to myself but assuredly shall we say devoted people to this country's future. As the phrase goes we must identify this nation's enemies and though we keep friends close, we MUST keep our enemies closer and you two vile bitches are just that, Benedict Arnolds to the country who gives you the freedom to embarass yourselves and make as ass of yourselves also, and simultaneously.

Therefore, I trust the both of you mother fuckers will continue to show yourselves on TV shows, expose to more and more people, as GUARANTEED your words will someday possibly accelerate your demise again not on my hand, but by somoeone who beleives in such finalizing action. So, PLEASE, don't stop, even expand your words of HATE for America and this Presidency because the more you talk the better chance my hopes and prayers are fulfilled. Would love to celebrate and would for days on end as I always would and will when still another America HATER meets his/her maker.

From the right 'Right,

"Sock" Sokolowski

46. Thanks. BradBlog's letter was too blurry to read
Typical, isn't it?

Stephanie did the right thing. Let the world see this scum for what he is. I hope the FBI is paying him a wee visit even as we speak. Perhaps they should get a warrant and search his house for AK 47s. Or maybe without a warrant, now that Bush has changed the rules. Then maybe Sock sucker will start cryin' about his civil liberties!

48. A caller urged Stephanie to report it to the police/FBI/whatever
It may not do any good but Stephanie was urged to report this SOB to the authorities as a stalker. G-d forbid something does happen to Stephanie, this @#$(*) will definitely be the first (and only) suspect in line. Just listening to him defending himself was scary, saying over and over "it's not a death threat" Well what was it, an invitation to a dance?

:eyes: I bet he didn't give any thought to the possibility that there may be more than one lunatic out there who is also a Stephanie Miller fanatic.

:eyes: Dumb ass! :eyes:

I hope Stephanie contacts the FBI and reports the death threat.
