Wisconsin Republican threatened with death by Wisconsin Democrat speaks out.
Two H/Ts go out on this one. First Jim Hoft, who drew my attention to the original story yesterday. As hard it is to believe, it is true, a Wisconsin Democrat threatens a Republican legislator with “You’re f***in dead.” The details on the threat are below the fold. More importantly Hot Air points to an interview on Fox this morning with the Republican woman who was threatened with death. “Yes, I felt intimidated.
The back story first, from my original source, Gateway Pundit ...
Friday morning after the Assembly vote to approve Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill Democrat State Rep. Gordon Hintz turned to Republican Rep. Michelle Litjens and said:“You are F***king dead!”
And just who is Hintz, that he would threaten a woman, much less another legislator? Why he’s the state rep who is currently ensnared in a prostitution sting, arrested for paying for sex. I thought Democrats respect women? How come they are only libertarians when it comes to the fun stuff, as AP so famously noted about Bill Maher one day.
And speaking of AP … he points us to an interview this morning on Fox with the female rep who was threatened … Republican Rep. Michelle Litjens. Did she feel threatened? You betcha! And the little creep let her think about it all weekend before he apologized yesterday, and only after the media exposed this little misogynist.
Watch and listen to her voice. And then remember, this is the party that claims to defend women’s rights? Uh, yeah, right.
Here’s a pic of the “big man” who threatens women and buys sex. My guess is the prostitutes of Wisconsin should consider themselves lucky he got busted.
More proof (as if it were needed) that the tolerance and civility preached by the left is the thinnest of veneers, scratched by the slightest touch.
I am surprised that Gordy was able to pony up enough money to make even a prostitute touch him. Maybe that is why he is so violent towards women. That, or he ran out of small dogs to kick…
The sign I take to Tea Parties states: The new Axis of Evil; Democrats, Liberals and Main Street Media.
Main Street Media is silent, absent, AWOL, MIA, etc. in coverage of the viral hate speech by the Dems & Libs. It is this same MSM that showered praise and adulation on Barack Obama for him setting the tone of civility…..then they forgot to read what they just glorified and apply to the events occurring now.
New name…LAME STREET MEDIA!
And to think "You lie" was made into such a big deal. At least that fellow spoke truth.
Let's hope Hintz was not telling the truth.
Hintz is a first class puke. Of course he called & apologized after it hit the news. Coward. He should, at the very least, be severely reprimanded for threatening another legislator.
Sorry, this is kinda off topic, but while watching the video, I was confused at first (haven't had coffee yet). I wondered why they were filming at a shopping mall…then I saw the sleeping bags and realized it was actually at the WI State Capital. Yeah, makes so much more sense!! Since when are we allowed to camp out in a state capital? Hey, we're looking to save some $$$ on our summer vaca…and we wouldn't even require maid service!!
Disgusting, the whole thing is digusting…
If we look back at history, there are usually barbarians at the gate, who take down the government. We will not even need barbarians, because we have enough within.
Teachers and legiscritters aspire to be viewed as professionals. Is the taking over of a Capitol Rotunda and threatening a colleague professional? Once again, people and institutions in which we have heretofore invested trust and confidence prove to be venal and untrustworthy. Can civil unrest be far behind?
Jim, Rep. Michelle Litjens IMHO should PRESS CHARGES against the Rep. Gordon Hintz. No one, and in a very special way, no woman should ever take a threat like that lightly. Do not be surprised if she ends up getting a gun permit in order for her to protect herself.
There is no diversity of ideas with liberals – It's socialism today, socialism tomorrow, and socialism forever. Diversity to a liberal means one thing – skin color. If you don't goose step with them, you're racist, idiot, Nazi, insane, etc., etc., etc.
The silent majority being silent, has in fact enabled 'progressive liberal leftist communists', giving them the sense they have free reign on the government. Partly our fault and our parents fault for allowing such ability while slumbering on freedom in featherbeds. Now we must take the brunt of liberal arrogance, much like Rep. Litjens did, as Hintz's arrogance with such a threat. He needs be held accountable, Litjens is at a pinnacle point, either turn the tide and begin holding all progressives accountable for all abusive and unconstitutional actions or be part of the continued problem, if that so being her choice, she may just sit down and shut up. I rather think she will hold strong, make him accountable and give a sign to every citizen, stand up and be heard.
We have reached the center of the Concord Bridge – either we cross over face our enemy or turn back, go home and surrender.
@ weregettinghosed Right you are.
As my dad said in late 2008. "Boys, I'm old and I will do what I can, but this problem falls squarely on your shoulders."
Morning Jim. Great respone to your blog article from yesterday over at Free Republic. :)=^..^=
