The United States Attorney's office in Philadelphia announced Monday "a two-count complaint and warrant was filed charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family."
In a video posted on YouTube, Leboon warned Cantor "…you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads."
With Democrats screaming and wailing that Republicans are using super-secret "code words" to supposedly incite people to "hate and violence," why is Leboon's arrest especially notable?
1) Leboon is from Philadelphia, where Obama egged on Democrats to back his 2008 campaign against Republicans with the cry "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl."
2) Just a week Obama told Democrats to "bring a gun" to "fight" Republicans, Leboon donated $505 to Obama on June 20 and 21.
3) Days after Cantor leads the fight against ObamaCare and holds a press conference on threats he has received Leboon apparently takes Obama's words to heart, posting a video on YouTube telling Cantor, his wife and his children "you receive my bullets in your office, remember they will be placed in your heads."
Obviously, the only person responsible for a death threat is the person who makes it.
But if Chris Matthews is so insistent Republicans are "criminally responsible" for nasty words, is Obama "criminally responsible" for someone threatening to shoot a Republican after he visited his city and told him to "bring a gun?"
