Promise

We’re having an okay couple of days.  So what does some right-wing asshole do?  He/she puts a piece of personalized hate mail in my mother’s mailbox.  She lives alone, in another city, and is near 80.  She called me, and she was upset.

So…we’re putting up security cameras at her place, now.  But – here’s a promise – if you go back, tough guy, I’m going to put you through a meat grinder, I swear to God.

That’s a promise.

    There isn’t a political party in the world that hasn’t been the victim of pranks. I volunteered for New Democrats who complained about the Liberals. I’ve talked to Liberals who complain about the Conservatives. And then I talk to Conservatives who complain about everyone.

    But going against the hard right, Lange party, reform Party, tea party radicals will make you some dangerous homegrown enemies. Ask Gabrielle Giffords. Ask the family of George Tiller. Ask the victims of 7/22.

    • The Doctor says:

      I agree about 7/22. Gabrielle Giffords, not so much:

      “Loughner’s best friend, Zach Osler, disputed speculation by media commentators that Loughner’s actions were fueled by partisan politics and rhetoric, insisting, “He did not watch TV, he disliked the news, he didn’t listen to political radio, he didn’t take sides, he wasn’t on the Left, he wasn’t on the Right,” and instead conspiracy theories had a profound effect on him. Another friend, Zane Gutierrez, later told the New York Times that Loughner’s anger would also “well up at the sight of President George W. Bush or in discussing what he considered to be the nefarious designs of government.”

      Loughner believed in numerous conspiracy theories and espoused views such as: the United States Government was responsible for the September 11 attacks. . . Loughner believed that most people in the country are brainwashed and are unaware that nothing is real. Loughner became obsessed with controlling what he perceived to be lucid dreams. Classmates also recalled Loughner as an atheist and a nihilist.”

      Not exactly a poster boy for the far-right. Just a wacko, period.

    Well that’s just not bright…

    Scumbag piece of shit. Probably just another Con frat-boy.

      I agree with this post.

      The behavior exhibited by this bigoted white male is typical of the bigoted white male political party (the PCs).

      • Dan says:

        Yet another fake comment from our resident conservative troll.

        Racial division is Tim Hudak’s game. Progressives don’t play that.

        Get the fuck outta here.

    Right-wing shitbags

    Maybe they’re trying to take you out of the play for a day or more by dragging you out there to stay with her; if so, maybe the LPO can spring for some taser-armed PI’s or Security Guards to watch over her and nab the bastard who played along, if he tries again.

  6. JStanton says:

    I don’t agree with the inclination to minimize this type of behavior by blaming it merely on “frat boys’, or by “wing-nuts”, or by neutralizing it because “everybody does it”. No they don’t. Progressives don’t send hate mail to moms. Just like women don’t practice pedophilia.

    This was an act driven by hate. Progressives get angry with opponents, or feel utter contempt for them, or pity, or even hate their actions or policies, but they don’t hate the people of the other side in a way that targets their mothers for violence.

    Only advocates for the Right do this type of thing – in Canada today, and everywhere throughout history. Conservativism is an ideology of hatred driven by fear. It destroys communities by tearing down what people have built for each other, and by squandering people’s resources on hate-based policies that further divide, diminish and impoverish.

    Conservatives need to face the fact that one of their own did this to Warren, his mom and his family, and to stop ducking reality. If you had any decency your tone and actions would show it; instead you pretend it’s just another day, and that your implicit support of this type of behavior doesn’t make you complicit in it. Buncha cowards.

      I AGREE WITH THIS POST.

      Most political violence has been done by the right. Case in point Lee Harvey Oswald who was obviously a Neo Nazi who was upset with JFK’s progressive policies on civil rights.

      Center-right parties should be banned on this type of historical behavior alone.

    • Jon Powers says:

      Yes, just asked the millions killed by Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. Thankfully, most people on the Left are not as stupid as you. Moron.

    Dirty rotten bastids!

    No prisoners, Mr Kinsella!

    Oh shit. That’s a Landowner’s tactic.

    “So you say it’s not OK to be gay, well I think you’re just evil. You’re just some racist, who can’t tie my laces. Your point of view is medieval.”

    Probably one of the same assholes who lights up radio talk shows with the “tough on crime” bullshit. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that the right leaning carnival barkers are hypocrites to the nines. And please spare the “it isn’t one of us” garbage. Obviously the guy doesn’t like Warren and that most likely makes him a Conservative.

  11. Mike says:

    I hope your family is ok Warren. Like most bullies, they look for the weakest link….how sadly pathetic

  12. Wannabeapiper says:

    Call me! I’ll be there and will give this coward 230 punds of whip ass.

  13. Wannabeapiper says:

    That’s ‘pounds” 🙂

  14. Raymond says:

    I think most right-of-center types would find this behaviour equally repugnant. The individual in question is obviously a spineless coward…plenty of which exist on both sides of the spectrum. Terrorizing seniors is the lowest form of thuggery and should warrant the cane.

    I hope your Mom is resting a little easier, W…that’s a very upsetting event. My (widowed) mother is also nearly eighty – I certainly know how I’d be feeling.

  15. Visionseeker says:

    Looks like Free Dominion types if you ask me… They are in the same neighbourhood after all.

  16. Visionseeker says:

    I would suggest that you contact the hate crimes unit in [Mom’s city/town name redacted]. For I strongly suspect that the culprit(s) is/are already person(s) of interest to the unit. While this may not result in immediate arrests, it could further their evidence gathering in any “hypothetical” on-going investigation which aim to secure asses to walls with flat-headed stainless steal fasteners.

  17. Michael S says:

    Oh there will be a lot of hard evidence linking Free Dominion with certain Landowners coming out real soon now.

  18. Liz says:

    Brutal. Asshole is an understatement. Hope your mom’s doing ok.

  19. Woody says:

    Agreed, “Randy Hillier, president of the Lanark Landowners Association, sent a message to Dombrowsky containing a photo of a dead deer named “Leona.” Dombrowsky said she turned the message over to police.” http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2005/03/09/farmer-fire-050309.html

  20. Anne Peterson says:

    If you think right of center types would think this repugnant then you should check some of their blogs. And some of their comments on media streams. They can be excedingly nasty.

  21. Susan says:

    Don’t waste time thinking about who might have done this based on politics. Protect Warren’s mum is step one. Hopefully, find out who did it and punish them appropriately. Its horrifying it happened at all.

    How long before the push pull phone calls from Omaha start?
