Fox “news” sheep outraged that threatening lawmakers may become illegal!

by Ben Hoffman

No joke. Here is the story:

Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.

Brady told CNN that he wants federal lawmakers and officials to have the same protections against threat currently provided to the president. His call comes one day after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) was shot, along with 19 other people, at a public event in Tucson. A suspect is currently in custody.


Just take a look at some of the virulent comments in response to the article. Right-wingers are outraged that they might not be able to threaten lawmakers. Watch out! They might get so mad they need to go out and shoot someone!

These people are out of control. They’re outraged because the government is trying to make health care more affordable. Or should I say, that’s what they’re told to be outraged over. They weren’t bothered by Republicans blocking health care for the 9/11 responders because, well, they weren’t told to be. Or maybe it’s because the firemen and policemen who became sick don’t matter because they’re government workers, and government workers are all scum.

Here’s a “must read” from Fox (that’s what it says on the website, so do it.)

It should not be, but the media, under the guise of “a full exposition” of the evil in Arizona, is back to subtly and not so subtly pinning the blame for the attempted assassination of the Congresswoman and the related shootings on the tea party movement, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, me, you, and everyone right of center.

Let’s be crystal clear: this is the supposedly objective news media doing this, not the openly, partisan left, though it is fueling the media witch hunt. And from what we now know, it is not just media malpractice, but a lie.


That is what you right-wingers are required to use as talking points. Repeat it in your blogs and when responding to posts by liberals. You have your marching orders. Do it.

  1. OK, so a Liberal politician is afraid that an American will execute him and wants to strip away the 1st Amendment in order to feel a little more secure. As was just proven, that’s correctable if it looks like anyone else in Congress would back him.
