Democrat Party Leader Uses Federal Government to Silence Man

Despite the fact that the man making the phone calls was actually less intrusive than a $1,000 fine for not buying something the government tells you to buy, Nancy Pelosi feels that she has the right to call out the government dogs to silence a man by putting a gun to his head.

AP adds that "Several federal officials say the man made dozens of calls to Pelosi's homes in California and Washington, as well as to her husband's business office, reciting her home address and saying if she wanted to see it again, she would not support the health care overhaul bill that was recently enacted. One official said the man is believed to have spoken directly with Pelosi at least once."

Why stop at silencing him? They should just assassinate him. You know they can do that now...

We do not assassinate! Only commit "extrajudicial prosecution". *cough*

Y'know, I think we should bring back "feeding to the lions" as a form of punishment. Was the guy Christian? Because we should only do it to Christians.

No, he's a Muslim priest and member of Al Qaeda... so what do they do over there? Stoning? Maybe he should be suicide bombed?

I saw another article on it and read some comments attributed to him. I think he probably crossed the line.

He was talking about it just taking 1 piece of lead and he was willing to donate it and being willing to personally give it to her ect... talking about her if she ever wanted to see her home again ect she'd vote against the bill... I'm pretty sure this was all from the pelosi guy vs the guy in washington, but im not following it real closely.

Oops... I got the threads confused, didn't I? Oh well, is there really a difference?

I love how this is construed as a partisan issue. I mean, shocker...right? You forgot to mention that charges were brought against a man for threatening Eric Cantor (R).

So, maybe we can change the thread title to something like: "Government enforces law"

Hmm.. bullets fired into his home.... harassing phone calls.

No, I think the title will remain the same.

Seriously.......WTF!

Crazies threaten Democratic leaders and are arrested.

Are you really just this dumb?

There's a point to this thread, and I'm sorry that you're not getting it, but it's just not worth the effort to explain.

Don't forget the part where he threatened a subway train operator (or something) and *gasp* was arrested.

THAT's a real political statement, right there.

There is no explanation. The guy allegedly made death threats and dozens of harassing phone calls. If you're arguing that these alleged actions do not warrant police intervention then you are even stupider than anyone here thought. If you're arguing that the Democrats are mounting some insipid, partisan campaign to "silence" people that oppose health care reform, then the Cantor example really blows some serious holes in that theory.

You want to talk about stupidity? Why don't you list the arguments I've made in this thread, and then tell me who's being stupid.

the real story here in my opinoin is how they saved up all these "death threats" for after they passed the bill to change the subject.

The real story here is how the Republicans would have cried about "distractionary tactics" if the Dems had said anything about it beforehand.
