The Party of Cao

Outrageous, but unsurprising:

Concern about possible violence escalated Wednesday after a severed gas line at the home of a Democratic lawmaker's brother was discovered. ...

Conservative activists in Virginia posted the home address of Perriello's older brother — believing it to be the congressman's address — when suggesting in Web postings that those who disagreed with the Democratic lawmaker's vote should "drop by" to make their opposition clear.

The Charlottesville Daily Progress reported that one of the two activists who posted the address condemned the action and said he is "almost speechless."
"Almost speechless"? Gimme a friggin' break. See what these "patriotic" thugs have unleashed? It's disgusting. Are you paying attention Anh "Joseph" Cao? Shouting "babykiller" at the most pro-life Democrat in Congress in the Halls of Congress, no less? Slashing gas lines at the home of a brother of a Congressman for his vote? See the movement you belong to? You wanna stick with that?

UPDATE: Wednesday, March 24, 2010: 7:25PM - Now, I wonder from where else in the world would these militant thugs get their terrorist notions? Is it true that these hints at violence against political rivals are just the machinations of fringe wingnuts? Surely, this kind of violence advocacy would never come out of the mouths of the true Christian leaders of the conservative movement, right? But, hey, when conservatives say that such things come from reprehensible and irresponsible fringe wingnuts, I'd say they've pretty much nailed it, given who I think is a reprehensible and irresponsible fringe wingnut these days. But let's at least be honest that this is what is leading the conservative movement. Are you watching this, Cao? Are you sure this is the side you want to hitch your morality to? Your GOP is shredding your reputation and making any claims you might make to hold the moral highground almost laughable.

Hideous and despicable.

The "speechless" crap is nauseating.

Cao had his chance. Short of a miracle, he's now wedded to the GOP because of his hcr vote, and his re-election fate is pretty much sealed.
