Tea Party Member Threatens to Kill Rep's Children Over Health Care
Edited on Wed Mar-24-10 01:34 PM by samplegirl

In the wake of a violent backlash to health care reform passage, Tea Party activists have upped their rhetoric to include despicable threats against children. Last August, windows were smashed at Democratic headquarters in Denver causing at least $10,000 worth of damage (pictured). More recently, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffordss Tucson office was vandalized. And last Thursday, a shocking recorded message was sent to Rep. Louise Slaughters (D-NY) campaign office. (via Daily Kos)

Assassinate is the word they used . . . toward the children of lawmakers who voted yes.

The FBI is investigating.

This is sick; morally, ethically and mentally. I have no words to properly convey how utterly, remarkably disgusting I find this type of behavior. Shocking is as close as I can get without consulting a psychotherapist for input on how deranged a person must be to even consider scare tactics (or worse) of this nature.

How sad and disturbing it is to witness The Party of No crossing the line from The Party of Hate to The Party of Violence. When do I get to stop asking the question, Where does it end?

5. I hope they start prosecuting some of these monsters
We are supposed to be living in a civilized society. These monsters are just as barbaric as some which they would call terrorist.

6. It doesn't end. It will be a continuing fight
The best weapons we have are facts, history, and a reasoning mind.
Even the most ill-informed can be converted with reasoned arguments that support reality. We all have to deal with reality and we can't create our own facts or define our own reality.
As the Bioneers say "we are all connected". What is good for one should be good for another. It's the only way to grow a sustainable environment be it economic or environmental.
