Even the Right Hates the Right

04 Nov

Not sure why some clown in Tennessee would be coming after a Congressman from Virginia – but this seems a bit like the nuts attacking the fruit in a fruitcake…

Man arrested for threatening Cantor’s family

The FBI says a Tennessee man has been charged with threatening the family of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.

Agents arrested 62-year-old Glendon Swift of Lenoir City on Wednesday.

He is accused of leaving two voicemail messages at Cantor’s office in suburban Richmond on the evening of Oct. 27. In the profanity-laced messages, the caller calls Cantor “Jew boy.” He also says he is going to destroy Cantor, rape his daughter and kill his wife.

Swift made a preliminary appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge C. Clifford Shirley Jr. in Knoxville on Thursday.

Cantor spokeswoman Laena Fallon said the Republican congressman had no comment on the threats.

      Also, you must read each caption with the voice of Thurston Howell the 3rd from Gilligan’s island. It’s much funnier that way.

      As a fellow Virginian – I can’t believe this is the best the good folks of Richmond, Virginia could do…

        People either don’t vote or vote blindly, generally speaking.

        With OWS and turmoil in Congress, I’ve had political conversations with people I’d otherwise would never have. It’s been enlightening and fun (most conservative people aren’t off the hook like Booker Rising).

        Bottom line: Until most people hurt, or at least begin to feel the pain, they are removed and vote indiscriminately – or not at all

        That’s why, i think – in part, people like Cantor get elected. It’s also why i think 2012 will be a change election – people get it and are connecting the dots.

        I agree with you. A lady friend on mine has put together a group of Dems and Repubs who are moderates. They aren’t happy with either side at the moment, although they are getting increasingly frustrated at the games being played by the Tea Baggers in the House blocking every bit of legislation. They aren’t necessarily Obama fans either – because they feel Obama has wasted a lot of time reaching for a consensus that wasn’t ever going to be there, and they feel he should have made the economy, and not medical insurance reform the first thing on the plate after he was elected.

        OWS is headed to be a MONSTER in terms of what happens next year. Do a little research, and there are Occupy groups in a lot of mid-sized and small towns, and it doesn’t really matter whether the area is in a red state or blue state.
