You are going to blame the Democrats for getting death threats and ruthless hate voice mails?
Democrats are getting phone calls telling them they will have to “look over their fucking shoulders.” People filled with rage and hate like they have never felt?
Having listened to these various phone messages? I would bet much good money many of these people leaving messages go to church and call themselves Christians. What would Jesus do? I also would note that pretty much none of them actually know what is in the bill. But they are screaming the talking points of the Tea Parties and Republicans.
But Cantor and some other Republicans are trying to claim “we are getting the threats also!” He notes that a bullet was fired at his window. According the Police?
In a news release, Richmond police said that the bullet had been fired into the air early Tuesday. It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor’s campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.
You know what the kind of calls Republicans are facing? “You racists!!!!!”
And in the mind of Republicans? That is worse than telling someone you hope they die and that they need to look over their shoulders. The worst thing you can call someone is a Racist in the minds of conservatives and republicans. Because that is much worse than threatening someone’s life or the lives of their family.
When Republicans are ready to admit they fanned the flames and regret doing so? I am ready to hear them out. But I am not holding my breath.
