Wisconsin Republicans Reveal Text of Death Threat Email

Rate this post

A fresh crop of death threats are floating through Madison today after the state Senate passed the union reform bill last night.
Talk radio host Charlie Sykes obtained the text of an email which encapsulates the kind of language being hurled at these lawmakers. Below is an excerpt:

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.

I often speak sarcastically about how the public is welcome for government incompetence, but let me serious for a minute. You are welcome for state-level lawmakers, who don’t get the attention of their federal counterparts, who don’t jet set around the world with celebrities, and who could easily make more money in a cushy corporate job – putting up with this kind of crap to make reform.

    If this was a death threat against the Democratic delegation, there would be swarms of law enforcement on the streets investigating and 24/7 bodyguards for the members and their families. The MSM would be screaming and Obama would be making more speeches deploring the lack of civil discourse and “homegrown terrorists”.
    All I’m hearing is a big silence when it’s the Republican delegation threatened. A bomb threat is a terrorist threat, isn’t it? Has the word “terrorists” even been mentioned in relation to this escalation in the rhetoric to the point of assassination if the perpetrator’s act is to promote the goals of Big Labor?

  2. The threats against our legislators are very specific and this makes them sadly credible. I expect that the authorities will protect our public officials and quickly bring the perpetrators of these threats into custody, throw them into jail, and toss the keys into Lake Michigan.

  3. b-b-but didn’t Democrats, the media, and Obama himself — after Jared Loughner’s murderous spree in Arizona which wounded Congresswoman Gifford and killed a federal judge and others — all decried the political “hate rhetoric” that they insist drove psychopaths like Loughner to kill. Why aren’t they screaming about these death threats?

  4. Nothing will happen to them. The judicial system is part of the public employee union? So are the police.
