My friend, Ann Althouse, was on FOX News yesterday, commenting on some video she and New Media Meade shot of kids being exploited, and indoctrinated, to support the public unions in Wisconsin.
Today they got a death threat:
"We will picket on public property as close to your house as we can every day. We will harrass the ever loving shit out of you all the time. Campus is OCCUPIED. State street is OCCUPIED. The Square is OCCUPIED. Vilas, Schenk's Corners, Atwood, Willy Street – Occupied, Occupied, Occupied, Occupied. Did you really think it was all about the Capitol? Fuck the Capitol, we are the CITY... We have the numbers and we don't back down from anyone. We all know each other. We all know each other. We know each other from Service Industry Night at the Orpheum, because we're regulars at the same coffee shops, restaurants and bars, we know each other from the co-ops, we know each other because we've had a million jobs each (and we all worked at CapTel at least once), because we live in every shitty townie house in ever-changing groups of 2 – 7 people, because we are young and horny and screw each other incessantly, because we're all on facebook, and because we aren't anti-social, life-denying, world-sterilizing pieces of human garbage like the two of you. WE WILL FUCK YOU UP. We will throw our baseballs in your lawn, you cranky old pieces of shit, and then we will come get them back. What are you gonna do? Shoot us? Get Wausau Tea Patriots to form an ad hoc militia on your front lawn? That would be fucking HILAROUS to us. You could get to know the assholes on your side in real fucking life instead of sponging off the civil society we provide for you every single day you draw breath."I don't think these people understand what they've done - Ann's important to us. She's not a conservative - she voted for Obama so, in a sense, she's partially responsible for this mess - but she's got a LOT of conservative friends because of the free speech policy of her blog. (Unlike most liberals, she doesn't try to shut anybody down merely because we may disagree about something.) Conservatives like her, but more importantly, we respect her. How many other liberals can claim that? Not many.
And if you ask me - if any harm comes to her or Meade - there ain't gonna be many liberals left, period:
