And Shots Rang Out: Lies of Congressional Black Caucus Lead To Gunplay

At least, that is how the headline would read if the New York Times, Newsweek, or the rest of the media were as far right as they are left, but let's face facts: John Lewis and the other CBC members that alleged racism against tea party protesters will never be held accountable for the death threats their false charges created, such as this:

Yes, uh. Yeah, I'm glad, uh. the president passed healthcare, yeah. Funky-ass, racist-ass Republicans hate that, don't you? Jean [sic] Smith, when you got hit by that car or when you fell or whatever, you should've broke your back, b***h. You, and Boehner motherf***er, that Mitch McConnell -- all you racist f***ing Republicans. Why don't you just change y'all's party name to "racist"? 'Cause if one of those little f***ing Teabaggers would've spit on me, I would have socked them in the f***ing face with my f***ing .09 mm. F*** all you racist motherf***ers.

That particular threat was left at an office of Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio).

Someone else thought mere threats were not enough, and actually fired into Eric Cantor's office.

Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor said Thursday that his Richmond campaign office has been shot at and that he's received "threatening e-mails" -- but at the same time the House minority whip accused top Democrats of trying to exploit the threats they've been receiving for "political gain."

Cantor said "a bullet was shot through the window" of his campaign office. The incident happened Monday, Fox News has learned, the latest in a rash of apparent threats and acts of intimidation against members of Congress.

The Democratic thuggocracy has, without a doubt, underestimated the American public's resolve to stand up to their Alinsky tactics and lies designed to fan the flames of racial discord. They've simply played this card too many times, without justification or reason, for anyone but the true believers and besotted special interests to believe any claim they make.

Perhaps when our next left wing radical detonates a bomb or assassinates someone (again) these leftist thugs will stop inciting violence from their followers, but based upon their long and bloody history, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Update: In what can only be described as good news, preliminary ballistics from the Richmond PD seem to indicate that the shot that hit Cantor's office window was probably a shot that was fired into the air from a distance. This would indicate that this incident was probably not a targeted attack.

This in no way absolves the CBC of intentionally stirring up racial hatred merely for the purposes of cheap political theater. Leftists have a well-documented propensity for violence, whether bombs or bullets, or arson and sabotage, and intentionally inciting them should be recognized as a criminal act.

Sickening stuff.

But you'd still be cool with someone punching Cantor, correct?

Just as I said yesterday, if you're willing to go to jail for it, don't let me stop you.

The issue is whether you can stop people all over the country from punching Congressmen, the question is whether you condone people punching Congressmen if they disagree with their politics.

I assume the bullet from Cantors office is undergoing ballistics. Have you heard anything about that, I couldn't find anything on Fox.

Whoops. That first line should read:

"The issue *isn't*..."

This THREATS nonsense is a canard by Dems to deflect their inability to address the their real faults: That is Dems can't create or sustain jobs.
Take my Rep KOSMOS who is too afraid to be yelled at to have town halls while in our district--the Space Shuttle shutdown will cause thousands directly to loose jobs and indirectly many thousands more (and send our launch services to RUSSIA).

My dad's adage: "You have to make something." should be our marching orders. We need to abate EPA and minions of Government and start pounding nails and power up Coal/Electric plants.

Our national challenge should be to identify the 200 most sold products at WALMART and persue bringing down impediments to maufacture til we make these products in the USA.

Hey, Festus,

The Richmond Police don't seem nearly as certain as you are that this was an attack on Cantor:

"Richmond Police Detail Shooting Of Cantorís Office
The Richmond cops send over a statement:

The Richmond Police Department is investigating an act of vandalism at the Reagan Building, 25 E. Main St., Richmond, Virginia. A first floor window was struck by a bullet at approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday, March 23. The building, which has several tenants including an office used by Congressman Eric Cantor, was unoccupied at the time.

A Richmond Police detective was assigned to the case. A preliminary investigation shows that a bullet was fired into the air and struck the window in a downward direction, landing on the floor about a foot from the window. The round struck with enough force to break the windowpane but did not penetrate the window blinds. There was no other damage to the room, which is used occasionally for meetings by the congressman.

The Richmond Police Department is sharing information about the incident with appropriate law enforcement agencies.

At this time there are no suspects."

Maybe you should wait a bit before blaming John Lewis's uppity orneriness.

While you're at it, would you please restyle Cantor's lopsided hair?

I think the details of the shot absolutely prove that a Right-winger must be responsible for it. Consider that the police concluded that the gun was fired straight up and the bullet went hundreds of feet in the air before returning to earth and breaking the window. That is a miracle shot requiring extraordinary marksmanship that could only be the product of a Conservative upbringing, someone familiar with guns from childhood. I mean, can you imagine some hippie leftist who barely knows which end of a gun you point & which you hold pulling off this million-to-one shot? Please.

For myself, I'd like to see the ammunition for that ".09mm". You would need very tiny fingers to load the magazine, I'd imagine. We're talking pencil lead, here.

thanks for post.

Awesome stuff. The claim that Cantor's office (well ok, not his office but a building where his mass mailings are handled) was targeted can be found on a link to Fox News (it was on their front page all day yesterday), but CY has to link to the Washington Post to get the story about the police saying the shot was a random fluke. Priceless.

".09mm"? LOL (9mm = roughly 38 cal; .09mm = roughly .0038 cal, about the size of a flea)

Yeah, I could probably live with that.

Wonder how he would like 12-gauge 00 coming back his way?
