Wis Capitol Chaos: Lawmakers Get Death Threats

By Jon Byman

Mar 10, 2011



MADISON - The State Department of Justice confirms that it is investigating several
death threats against a number of lawmakers in response to the legislature's move
to strip employees of many collective bargaining rights.

Among the threats the Justice Department is investigationg is one that was emailed
to Republican Senators Wednesday night.  Newsradio 620 WTMJ has obtained that
email.

The following is the unedited email:

Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes
will also be killed
due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain
to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it
will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit
that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for
more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.

WE want to make this perfectly clear. Because of your actions today and in
the past couple of weeks I and the group of people that are working with me
have decided that we've had enough. We feel that you and the people that
support the dictator have to die
. We have tried many other ways of dealing
with your corruption but you have taken things too far and we will not stand
for it any longer. So, this is how it's going to happen: I as well as many
others know where you and your family live, it's a matter of public records.
We have all planned to assult you by arriving at your house and putting a
nice little bullet in your head. However, we decided that we wouldn't leave
it there. We also have decided that this may not be enough to send the
message to you since you are so "high" on Koch and have decided that you are
now going to single handedly make this a dictatorship instead of a
demorcratic process. 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 won't
tell you all of them because that's just no fun. Since we know that you are
not smart enough to figure out why this is happening to you we have decided
to make it perfectly clear to you. 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. Please
understand that this does not include the heroic Rep. Senator that risked
everything to go aganist what you and your goonies wanted him to do. We feel
that it's worth our lives to do this, because we would be saving the lives
of 300,000 people. Please make your peace with God as soon as possible and
say goodbye to your loved ones we will not wait any longer. YOU WILL DIE!!!!

Whoever sent this is either very stupid or an agent provocateur.

Hope it doesn't turn out to be someone from the right, stirring the pot.

"But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized,
at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails
the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than
we do, it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that
we're talking with each other in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds"

Walker started this crap.

Anyone with a computer can send e-mail, and it is every bit as likely that this was done by some demented rightwing asshole as by anyone on the left.

What does that mean?
Governor Walker was elected by the people to make decisions.
He is doing so.
Are you justifying threats, intimidation, vile signs,
and uncivil tactics because someone has a different
opinion? What evidence do you have that someone
from the rightwing sent the e-mail. There has obviously
been a lot of intimidation and anger from the Left
in this matter, so to automatically assume this
was some rightwing conspiracy e-mail seems rather lame.

Where do you get that? It could just as easily be someone from the right trying stir the pot against the left.

Think about it. How many right wing guys do you know who go around dressing up like pimps in front of ACORN offices?

Walker did not run on a platform of wiping out teachers' rights to collective bargaining.

He had to know that it would be seriously opposed, and he did it anyway.

He is to blame for the mess he started.

So if someone comes to a different conclusion than you you think
it is ok to threaten violence and uncivility in our political system?

Lots of Republicans do not like the mess Obama started known as ObamaCare,
but they are not using the disgraceful tactics you seem to be justifying.

The Republicans won in Wisconsin but you disgraceful Leftists
want to disavow the election and pretend you are still in charge.
Leftist dont give a shit about democracy....they want their Union thugs!
You tried your dirty tricks....but we see how you got your ass kicked by the Governor!

Where do you get that?

From the part where Xo is blaming Walker for the apparent threats, thus giving justification for the "response"


It could just as easily be someone from the right trying stir the pot against the left.

It sure could, but there's no proof to that.  Transparent deflection effort it would seem though

Apples & oranges.  "Dressed up pimps" didn't MAKE ACORN officals act unethically, if not illegally, in front of a camera.  Think "sting" effort, if that helps

Could you provide the proof that the threatening email came from the left? I did not see that in the article.

Not the point now is it.  You seem to believe I've come down in claiming this absolutely has to be from the left.  Care to cite where??  Nice deflection try though

Addressing your continued deflection effort, care to provide the proof now of a "severely edited video", as it relates to the ACORN "Sting"??

Sure it is. The email in question could have come from any part of the spectrum. The readers of the article were led to assume it came from the left , but the authors failed to provide the proof.

So in essence you said nothing. and mumbled something about deflection.

and then, speaking of deflection, you disregard the NAACP tapes and then ask for proof of the ACORN edits.

OK
