One of Washington's principal supporters of the Tea Party movement, former GOP Majority Leader Dick Armey's FreedomWorks, has been receiving death threats and profanity-laced phone calls as it gets involved in the fall elections. 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 provided some of the recordings of the threatening calls to Whispers and they include physical threats and profanity aimed at the group, Tea Party spokesmen and even conservative talkers. "You guys better watch it," says one caller. "Now, we are going to destroy and obliterate Rush [Limbaugh] and Sean Hannity," said another. "Those two guys are dead."
Having worked at several conservative non-profits, I can tell you explicit death and bomb threats can be a near-daily occurance. When you're dealing with people who view Americans as nothing more than livestock that need to be herded and cared for by the state, they view any deviance from their views as an attack on the state -- one that must be neutralized by force, if necessary, for your own good.
