Someone alert the media!
Freedom Works is the Tea Party group headed by Dick Armey. They plan a get out the vote effort this fall, but will have to use part of their GOTV funds to pay for security thanks to the lunatics hurling death threats their way.
US News: The number and intensity have reached such heights that the organization is leaving its downtown location near the FBI and moving to a high-security building near the U.S. Capitol.”FreedomWorks and Dick Armey receive dozens of threatening and harassing calls and E-mails each day. Many imply violence and use of weapons,” spokesman Adam Brandon tells Whispers. “As we get closer to the election we expect the harassment to increase.”
Here’s another instance of the media remaining silent when conservative groups or individuals are threatened with physical harm. But when a Muslim cab driver was stabbed lefties in the media were quick to blame it on tea partiers and right wingers before they had any facts. Turns out they were wrong, but that didn’t stop them.
