Upon voting in support of the Health Care Bill, after being assured an executive order would prevent federal funding for abortions, Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak received messages from supposed Right-to-Lifers...

"Congressman Stupak, you baby-killing mother f***er... I hope you bleed out your a**, got cancer and die, you mother f***er."

"There are millions of people across the country who wish you ill, all of those thoughts that are projected on you will materialize into something that's not very good for you."

A fax with the title "Defecating on Stupak" carried a picture of a gallows with "Bart (SS) Stupak" on it and a noose attached. It was captioned, "All Baby Killers come to unseemly ends Either by the hand of man or by the hand of God."

Sarah Palin, the woman who could have been our current Vice President, used her Facebook page to model life-affirming behavior for her constituents by posting a map dotted with gun crosshairs, asking folks to "unseat" the Democrats from the districts who voted for the Bill.
Palin called for her supporters to both "reload" and "take aim".

We heard a lot of sanctimonious speeches from Republicans in Congress on the eve of the House vote, decrying the Bill for not respecting the sanctity of the unborn.  Is there no sanctity for the already-born?  Do we want babies to be born to people like this?


  1. As far as the Rethugs go--
    This was never about HC.
    It was about racism, fear, power, ignorance, denial, and I have mine the hell with the rest.
    Wait until our HC becomes 25% of our GDP. Then we will be forced to go to Socialized Medicine. Lets just hope it is not too late by then.

  2. All I've been hearing about the last few days is how the Republicans, upset over the passage of the Health Care Reform bill, have spewed their hateful rage and disgust at their fellow members of Congress and set their radical followers on a mission of intimidation and harrassment against the proponents of the bill. What's more, they are not apologetic for their actions and continue to feed the flames of anger amongst their Tea Party zealots.

    I wonder how they will excuse themselves from any responsibility after one of their own takes a hint from these reprehensible Republicans and murders one or more of the supporters of the bill? I am guessing we won't have to wait long to find the answer to that question.

    Great post, Tom!

  3. Do they not fall in the category of [Home grown terrorists}?
    They have crossed the line of free speech.
