Members of the US House of Representatives have received threats from people Congressman Bart Stupak announced that he and the former co-called “Pro-Life” Democrats.
Since Saturday there were allegations that members of the Congressional Black Caucus including Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) called the N word by tea party protesters. A reporter for CNN heard the racial epitaph. But video by those who attended the tea party in Washington, DC (I seen the video and I didn’t hear the racial remarks. For Clarity I am Black)
On Sunday, Representative Louise Slaughter(D-NY) offices attacked with bricks thrown into her constituent offices in Upstate New York.
Representative Russ Carahan, (D-MO) claims someone placed a coffin near his home.
The Brother of Representative Tom Perriello(D-VA) gas line was cut on Monday after the vote.
In an interview with POLITICO on Wednesday Jim Hubbard a representative of Carnahan says “Carnahan appreciates thoughtful feedback received both in favor and opposition of health insurance reform.” “We can disagree on important issues facing our country without resorting to this kind of thing. Russ Carnahan isn’t going to shy away from the importance of reform when 45,000 fellow Americans died last year due to a lack of health insurance.”
Conservative are better than this . The overwhelming majority of American are not racists they do not like the direction of country to a Western European Socialist Democracy like Germany, France, Spain et al. The majority are not violent. I also question the motives of the Left as well the attack against the Tea Party Movement by the Likes of the Democratic Party, New York Times and various celebrities. So its OK to Bash President Bush but not Democrats that’s morally vapid.
Earlier today an envelope containing white powder and a threatening letter was delivered to my community office in Kew Gardens. The NYPD was immediately alerted and have responded appropriately by sending a Hazmat team. Any questions related to their response should be directed to the NYPD. My first priority is the safety of my staff and neighbors, and the authorities are currently taking steps to investigate and resolve the situation.
The FBI agent Richard Kolko said,”The FBI is here opening up what is called a threat case against the congressman, to investigate the threat.”
Rep. Carolyn Malone also receive threating messages to her office.
Democrats denounced the attacks and threats and Blamed the Republicans. Rep. Jim Clybourn,(D-GA) accused the GOP in a interview on Hardball with Chris Mathews on MSNBC.
However Republicans Reps. Eric Cantor(D-VA) had his Richmond,VA shot at on Monday. He came forward Today after the Democrats complained about the attacks.
Cantor blased the Democrats for engage the blame game on the GOP.
“By ratcheting up the rhetoric, some will only inflame these situations to dangerous levels. Enough is enough, it has to stop,” he said.
In particular he criticized Congressman Chris Von Hollen(D-MD) and Democratic National Chairman Tim Kaine. Von Hollen slammed the Republicans for the threats on MSNBC on Wedensday; “pouring more and more gasoline on the flames.” Kaine, in an interview with the Huffington Post, said Republican leaders are “trying to stoke anger” with lies.
Cantor says,”that such threats should not be a “partisan issue.”
