The threat of violence is continuing in our country and will continue until we see it come to fruition more and more. Rep Harry Mitchell-(D)from Arizona is the latest member of Congress to witness the insanity. via Andrea Mitchell:

Caller: You are going to have to look over your f*&king shoulder because people in your district hate your f*&king face. I love my insurance company and to have you come between me and my f*&king doctor. I cannot tell you how much I wish a panty bomber would come in and just f*&king blow your place up.

A recorded message to his office from a woman who said she hates his f*&king face and hopes a bomb will blow his office up. Nice.

U.S. Rep. Harry Mitchell, D-Ariz., has received death threats over his vote in favor of federal health care reforms.

“Congressman Mitchell’s life was threatened both prior to and following the vote,” said press secretary Adam Bozzi.

Bozzi said Mitchell also received calls at his Tempe home and someone left a note about health care with coal and dog feces at his congressional office in suburban Phoenix.

One caller said she was so filled with rage that the Congressman should ‘watch his back’ and called for a bomber to blow up his Scottsdale office, Bozzi said. "His wife has been harassed at their Tempe home, and his son – a Tempe city councilman – also received menacing calls, as well," Bozzi said.

Just wait until the summer strolls along. And the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19th, is right around the corner. Law enforcement is not looking forward to the day that Timothy McVeigh launched his terrorist attack on US soil.
