My first death threat. I feel proud. This message was sent to me on Thursday via Twitter from out of left (literally) field.
Pleasant, huh? I can’t say I’m surprised, though. Some of the most vile hate speech on the Internet comes from the American progressives. You rarely see the kind of language on conservative blogs as you do on DailyKos, Democratic Underground or AmericaBlog on an hourly basis.
I’m happy to report that the Twitter community rallied in support of me and trashed the liberal troll up one side and down the other. In fact, he has deleted all of his postings to me completely. But the Internet saves EVERYTHING. And thanks to the Library of Congress’ agreement with Twitter, Steve’s death threat is part of recorded American history! His Mom must be so proud.
I wonder if my last response to him on Twitter had anything to do with his trying to erase the evidence?
@stevexumba Under Federal & state laws, your statement to me does constitute a threat that can be pursued with criminal and civil charges
Ah, the cross we conservatives have to bear in America by standing up to political intimidation.
