Media Suppresses Leftist Violence (Again)

Michael Thomas describes himself as a liberal Democrat and communist. The police say he's mentally unstable, but that's redundant.

A Portland man charged with sending threatening letters to Gov. Paul LePage admitted to agents that he sent those and other threatening letters to national political figures, including Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, according to testimony Wednesday in U.S. District Court.

Authorities also found a gun and an ammunition clip in Michael Thomas' desk drawer when he was arrested Friday, FBI Special Agent Pamela Flick testified; and Thomas told her that if they had showed up later, he would have launched a shootout with police.

Thomas claims he would have carried out his death threats if he had the means. In other words, he had the intent of becoming the next Jared Lee Laughner, just not the ability to carry it out.

Because all of his targets were Republicans, and Thomas is a self-described Democrat and communist, the MSM won't give this story the front-page treatment they would if the situation was reversed.

It's far too important for them to protect the narrative.

Liberal Democrat, communist and mentally unstable: three time loser.

Remember when the "leftist media" gave all that front-page treatment to the Byron Williams story? You know, the ex-felon and Glen Beck-devotee who had a huge shootout with the Oakland police while on his way to kill members of the SF ACLU and the Tides Foundation.

Yeah, I don't remember that coverage either. Especially on Fox News who, you know, employed Beck at the time.
