Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) is a member of Congress, and as such a member of the US Government. Here, he is seen demonizing President Obama at a radical right wing meeting as “An enemy of humanity”, legitimizing actions against President Obama, up to and including attempting to assassinate him…
Methinks the boy needs a serious sit down with the Congressional Ethics Committee – followed by some quality time with the Secret Service.
Thi is way over the top for a Government official.
The Republican Party chairman of Boise County in Idaho was arrested Thursday for aggravated assault after he pulled a gun on a man whose house he was photographing.
Charles McAffee, 33, was among Idaho’s anti-tax tea-party activists, and is a member of the Idaho Republican Party Central Committee. He was arrested after pulling a handgun on a homeowner whose mortgage his employer sought to photograph for being delinquent. His employer is a contractor for Wells Fargo.
Wells Fargo called McAffee’s behavior “horrific and absolutely inexcusable.” Via AP:
According to police in the Boise suburb of Meridian, resident Robert Lutes called officers just before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to report McAffee had pointed a .357 Magnum handgun at him during a verbal confrontation. McAffee acknowledged he pointed the gun at Lutes, according to the police account.
“I’m unarmed, I’m an old man,” Lutes, 51, told The Associated Press on Thursday. “I’m trying to find out why he’s taking pictures of my house. I said, ‘Knock on my door, let me know what you want.’ Then, I think he’s reaching for his business card and he pulls out a concealed weapon and I think he’s going to blow my head off.”
Idaho’s Republican Party told the Associated Press the arrest of one of its leaders was a “personal matter.”
“It’s not a party matter,” Jonathan Parker, state GOP director in Boise, told AP.
One of McAffee’s supporters said the homeowner’s account was false:
“McAffee brandished the weapon to de-escalate the conflict,” he asserted.
Yes, you read that right: he pulled a gun to de-escalate the conflict.
And these are the sort of clowns who need to carry guns to a protest march?
Can’t wait for the next Rethugly to claim MLK was a Republican!
Glenn Back is at it again – this time discussing poisoning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi –
The Right Wing in this country has been on a steadily downward spiral since the Contract on America, Neut Gingrich “revolution” in 1994. Spurned by voters for near 40 years, Republicans sought “to get some of their own back” from the real and perceived slights inflicted upon members of the minority Party.
Republicans took majority control of the House in 1994 with a chip on their shoulder – and that chip, despite holding power for 12 years – never left.
That chip included private and public derisiion of the Left, and a naked attempt to turn the term “Liberal” into an epithet, a 6 year campaign to illigitimately impeach a sitting President through any means necessary, as well as repeated attacks upon his family…
It’s crossed the line.
There has been a massive upsurge in death threats agains President Obama…
President Obama has gotten more death threats in a shorter period of time than any other president in US history. The legion of right side talk radio gabbers, the GOP induced professional mobsters who commit orchestrated mayhem at health care town halls, the birthers, the countless websites and chatrooms that crackle with anti Obama venom, and the endless montage of race baiting cartoons, characterizations and depictions of Obama and First Lady Michelle have created a viperous climate of hate and that knows no bounds.
There have also been death threats against Democrat Congressmen –
Democratic Rep. Brad Miller received the call Monday, one of hundreds the congressman’s office has fielded demanding town-hall meetings on the health care proposal, said his spokeswoman, LuAnn Canipe. She said the callers were “trying to instigate town halls so they can show up and disrupt.”Miller never had plans to hold a town-hall meeting of people to discuss the plan.The threatening caller, when told by a staffer that Miller was not planning a meeting, claimed the congressman didn’t want to meet with people face to face because he knew it would cost him his life, according to Canipe. The staffer then asked if the caller was making a threat. The caller, said Canipe, replied that there are a lot of angry people out there.
Threatening the lives of our elected representatives…
And it is time for Law Enforcement to persue it as such.
