Bearing Arms reports on a disturbing email sent to Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY):
Subject line: “Did you NOT expect this?”
Email: “One down, 216 to go….Did you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.”
According to Tenney’s Communications Coordinator, Hannah Andrews, the office frequently receives threats but this one was even more alarming given the timing.
“The level of discourse in politics today is truly unfortunate,” Andrews said in a statement. “Our nation was founded on the principle of free speech, and it’s vitally important that we have a robust debate on the issues. However, protections under the first amendment do not extend to violence.”
Obviously, everybody gets death threats from all sides, and fringe hate and evil know no party affiliation. However the Democrats, the Left, and the media decided years ago that “extreme” rhetoric from conservatives breeds violence, even when the example is nothing more than targets on a campaign map or simply reporting on the criminal activities of a late-term abortionist.
Since then, all we’ve heard is that Republicans, especially with Donald Trump leading the charge, are the party of Nazis, Russian spies, and white supremacists who want to impose “fascism” on the country and kill people en masse by taking away healthcare and lifting global warming regulations.
So liberals have two choices here: either admit individuals are solely responsible their own actions on both sides, or live by the same rules they set for the rest of us.
In any event, TFPP will continue to follow this story as it unfolds.
