Listen: Hate Threats Left on Rep. Bart Stupak's Voicemail

Stupak

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

That's just one of the voicemails obtained by CBS News that was left for Rep. Bart Stupak following passage of the health care reform bill this week.

Listen to some more gems, AFTER THE JUMP...

And then there's this: "In recent days, bricks were hurled through windows of Democratic offices in three states, and some members of Congress have reported receiving death threats. 'We've had very serious incidents that have occurred over the last 48, 72 hours,' House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters Wednesday. 'Anyone who feels at risk is getting attention from the proper authorities.'...  A brick with the words 'No to Obama' and 'No to Obomycare' was thrown through the window of the Sedgwick County Democratic Party headquarters in Wichita, Kan., late Friday or early Saturday. Glass doors at the Monroe County Democratic Committee in Rochester, N.Y., were also broken by a brick. An attached note read, 'Extremism in defense of liberty is not a vice,' a quote by the late Barry Goldwater, a former U.S. senator known for his libertarian views. Bricks were also thrown through district offices of Reps. Louise M. Slaughter (D-N.Y.) and Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.)."

At a press conference on Capitol Hill this morning, Nancy Pelosi denounced GOP leaders for egging on hecklers and those who choose to intimidate.

  2. It's a demonstration of the ignorance of this mob of yahoos that they quote Barry Goldwater. He was one of the last of the genuine Republican conservatives, with a set of ideas and ideals that put him way above the succeeding crop of reactionary twits who've polluted the landscape for way too long.

  4. Wasn't Goldwater the one who also said that he didn't trust Evangelicals and worked to keep religion out of politics?

    He also said "“You don't have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight.”

    These people need to read and educate themselves about their "heros"

  5. This Stupak guy from what I've heard is on the most anti-abortion Senators on the Hill. These stupid people! LOL. If something extreme does happen, I hope no one is killed. But I also hope the media will really stick it to the Republicans this time. They can't deny responsibility for this, this time.

  6. Level heads in the GOP (0.01%) are slowly realizing that they have unleashed a beast that they cannot control. This will not be pretty. The remaining batshit crazy GOP are all behaving like evil psychos in movies who are laughing as the world immolates around them.

  7. This is sad but honestly, it reads like a lot of the comments here on Towleroad. I guess we all have something to learn.

  8. It's a new Kristallnacht if you ask me. And I too can't believe these idiots are praising Goldwater since he stood for everything that they hate!

    Read this article, it's frightening, yet, a call to end complacency. It explains why this all happened the way it did.

  9. Matt, ftw.

    Isn't this more of what some of "us" did to some of "them" following the passage of Prop 8? Things are getting uglier and uglier.

  10. Yeah, because all perpsectives are equal, matt...nazism and democracy, racism and egalitarianism...they all mean the same thing and are on the same footing, right? Idiots.

  11. whatever happened to democracy? what happenned to decency? it makes me nauseated. but this is the kind of speech that cheney, rove, and palin ushered in. if you view a person in the abstract, you view him/her as a thing, a mere cypher. this is what facilitated the extermination of the jews, american-natives, and many other peoples.

    the democrats need to step up and fight this bull-shit.
