Death threats

Limbaugh, Hannity, and Freedomworks receive death threats that are so serious that Freedomworks had to move its office to a more secure building. Now, crazies on both side, sure, but this is ridiculous. Limbaugh and Hannity are commentators and analysists of the daily news. Freedomworks is more of a PAC, but to threaten them? That isn't the way this country works. We are not the country that threatens and intimidates to get the opposition to retreat. We have to work together to stop this. We don't have to be in the same party. We do have to agree that this is wrong by either side. Please say I am right!!!!!

  • Jesse,


    Your not going to stop the death threats, it has been going on for over 200 years. America is great, but it sure has a bunch of mixed nuts in it. You get a lot of people that threaten, but thank God very very few try to carry it out. But, then again it only takes one.

  • I agree. this is crazy. but it makes you really think that they may be getting to the core of this issues and the truth that people dont want to know about. i am all for hannity and other tea partiers. I guess now you could call me a terrorist based on the new justice department release on it. anyone following the "old/current" constition are terrorists? well, i think of my self as more of a conservative/ teapartier but if that means I am a terrorist so be it!

  • but it makes you really think that they may be getting to the core of this issues and the truth that people dont want to know about

    Does that mean that David Letterman, Conan O'Brien and Catherine Zeta-Jones were getting to the core of some truth that people didn't want to know about? How about John Lennon and Rebecca Schaeffer? They actually were killed, it wasn't just threats. Celebrities get stalked and celebrities get death threats. Some get more than others. That doesn't somehow mean they are more noble or imparting some great wisdom. It means they are famous and on tv a lot.

  • That's not true. The Secret Service said that Obama has not received anymore death threats then any other President.

    I just saw that the other day.

  • There is no excuse for death threats- it makes the threateners (of which there are plenty on both sides) look bad and accomplishes nothing. Certainly nothing constructive, which is what this country could use.

  • People who make threats like that are the true terrorist. Takes a real psycho to go threaten another person for no other reason then not liking their POV.
