Death Threats Against Conservatives

Why haven’t we heard/seen/read about this in the Main Stream Media? If these death threats were made to a liberal/Progressive/Democrat group, the major TV networks would be SCREAMING about this.

And what happened to the Left’s vaunted “tolerance”? The Left’s hypocrisy knows no bounds.

Death Threats Force FreedomWorks to Move

By David A. Patten – NewsMax.com – August 26, 2010

The grass-roots conservative FreedomWorks organization has received so many death threats in the run-up to the midterm elections that the organization is moving its headquarters. “Yes, it’s constant, and we are going to have to move up to Capitol Hill,” FreedomWorks spokesman Adam Brandon tells Newsmax.

The threats are coming in via phone and e-mail, and have escalated to the point that the organization has decided it must move into a high-security building near the Capitol building.

Many of the threats are said to involve high-profile FreedomWorks Chairman and former Rep. Dick Armey, who has become a de facto spokesman for the tea party movement.

Sources tell Newsmax some threats are veiled, while others are explicit. Many are profanity-laced telephone calls, and some imply the use of weapons. “It’s not like we think there’s an imminent threat coming tomorrow,” Brandon tells Newsmax. “It’s that it just doesn’t stop, and we’re concerned that somebody someday is going to have a screw loose.”

FreedomWorks officials expect the intensity of the threats to increase as the November elections draw near. But the organization, which has played a central role in nurturing the various tea party organizations, is putting off its move until after the elections to avoid any disruption of its activities. In addition to moving to a more secure building, Brandon says the organization also may hire additional security guards.

Paul Bedard of U.S. News & World Report’s Washington Whispers blog reports some calls the group has received even target conservative radio hosts. One recorded message stated “we are going to destroy and obliterate Rush [Limbaugh] and Sean Hannity,” said another. “Those two guys are dead.”

Brandon comments: “We’ve all kind of just gotten used to it to an extent. You just let it go to voicemail and then you move on.”

  1. Left/libtards seizing the moral high ground for “social justice”… just like Che!

  2. SO THIS IS WHAT IS HAS COME DOWN TO!!!! THE RADICAL LEFT HAVE TO RESORT TO THIS, BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEIR DAYS ARE NUMBERED AND THAT THEY HAVE NO SUBSTANCE AND THAT THEIR LEADERS ARE EVIL

  3. They have nothing left they can throw at conservatives. The woman who left that message should be hunted down by authorities, charged and convicted. You cannot go around threatening people and lying about people (especially famous people) without paying the consequences. The woman is an obvious nut job who needs a lot of therapy
