45. Bullies do that sort of thing...
When you call them out, they say, uh uh, no way, I know you are but what am I?

I won't copy from this post because it asks that you not do that at the bottom, but I think this is very fitting.

4. There's a point when resistence becomes PHYSICAL.......
self defense. That point is different for different folks. My point would be when they start busting heads or shooting people. Obviously others have a different point.

12. It sounds as if someone wants to paint the streets red
Not sure if this is fake or not, but I fear this country is moving in that direction
and it will not be pretty.
It is not pretty now with the majority of the American people
being forced to live with dictators.

14. I figured the Libertarian type people around here
wouldn't stand for what Walker's doing. There is one group of tea partiers that are libertarians somewhere north of Madison. They refused to endorse Walker because they felt he was a threat to their freedoms. They were also the militia types and state's rights group. Can't remember which group they were though. I do remember I read the interview on Milwaukee's Uppity Wisconsin Blog.

18. I wonder how much they pay to get someone to issue death threats
like that?

Probably more than just showing up at rallies, since there is the risk of being caught committing a crime.

19. Just listened live a bit on to their broadcast
They had a right wing d-bag on spewing hate for the American worker and reading headlines off the Drudge Report. He even manage to attack President Obama. I am not surprised that they are manufacturing the news.

32. The one I've seen looks like a kid wrote it.
Edited on Thu Mar-10-11 11:32 AM by FBaggins
It's clearly not a threat that law enforcement would take seriously.

"So we have also built several bombs that we have placed in various locations around the areas in which we know that you frequent. This includes, your house, your car, the state capitol, and well I wont tell you all of them because thats just no fun."

Seriously? They think there's a special ed teacher somewhere who just whipped up several bombs and planted them all last night?

38. Parlock
"They just pounced on us," said Phil Parlock, "She was crying; they were pushing and shoving her." My God - will those evil Democrats stop at nothing? John Kerry must hate children! Actually, it looks like it's Phil Parlock who hates children - see, this isn't the first time Mr. Parlock has made it into the papers after being "pounced on" at a Democratic rally. After he and his 12-year-old son Louis smuggled Bush signs into an Al Gore event back in 2000, Louis apparently hoisted a girl onto his shoulders. According to the Charleston Daily Mail, "'She walked up and said 'I'll get on your shoulders and hold a sign,' " Louis said. While she was sitting on Louis' shoulders waving a Bush-Cheney sign, a man who identified himself as a volunteer for the Gore campaign tried to pull the sign out of the girl's hands, Parlock said. He pulled so hard that Louis and the girl fell over. 'That sounds like an exaggeration,' said Sarah Feinberg, spokeswoman for Gore's West Virginia campaign." And - would you believe it - Parlock was a victim of nasty liberals at a Clinton campaign event back in 1996 as well! Again, according to the Charleston Daily Mail, "The Huntington man said he was knocked to the ground by a Clinton supporter when he tried to display a sign that read 'Remember Vince Foster' ... 'It must have been a strict Democrat who did this,' Parlock said." Yup, our Phil certainly has a habit of complaining to the media about Democratic "thuggery." Kinda makes you wonder why he took his young daughter to the event last week. But then, once you realize that Parlock appears to have a relationship with the photographer that snapped the above pic, and that the man wearing the union shirt holding the ripped up sign looks suspiciously like one of his sons, and that Parlock even happened to be around when his local Republican party headquarters were shot at by a unknown assailant ...well, it just kinda makes you think. Funny how our Phil always seems to end up in the wrong place at the wrong time - with the media in tow.

47. I'll wait to see how this pans out...
There's a problem with crying wolf. All too often we see things manufactured... complete with actors in various costumes with a recurring theme.

I'm all for putting the smackdown on whomever makes criminal threats regardless of ideology; however, with so many lies having been thrown out there, let's just say I'm cautious about pre-emptive smackdown.

50. Death threats aren't acceptable no matter who you are
I don't doubt, given how tense Wisconsin is right now, that both sides may be involved in death threats, but it's not right.

It could very well be this is just a smear campaign and a distraction, but we have to realize sometimes our shit stinks too. Liberals aren't immune to the worst of human nature.
