'I wouldn't be surprised if a senator or House member were killed'

Then pass a law making it a federal felony to send death threats to government officials across state lines and send the farkers to prison.  Set up a new farking agency if you need to.

We've entered into the "finding out" part of Representative Democracy once you have fully enabled your Dystopian Christian Theocracy Hellscape.

Enjoy the ride.

Republicans fermented these types of responses at their political rallies and are shocked that people are not only doing what they encouraged but others are responding in kind fearful of their own from the kooks they themselves fermented? I think I'm going to have to go shopping for a new shocked face cause mine is worn out after all these years.

If Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman hadn't saved Mitt Romney on Jan 6, 2021, there would be a lot more people in jail right now, and attitudes toward insurrectionists would be radically different.

They did and there's Homeland Security.

Ain't nothing gonna happen aside from low hanging fruit from MAGA too stupid to film themselves calling and leaving messages.

They can trace. They will ignore when the calls are within the GQP, CPAC, or ALEC.

Well maybe if we had a normal, functional government these threats would be fewer. Enabling right-wing, fascist, conspiracy-laden Christians pisses off everyone. You're either involved in a conspiracy or not Christian enough, or your stripping rights to create a Christian conservative hellscape. You made your bed and have no one but yourself to blame Collins.

To the Feds reading this I am not advocating violence. I am just saying certain actions are likely to lead to certain things happening.

Dystopian Christian Theocracy Hellscape is the name of my Creed/Dethklok Amy Grant Tribute Band.

Looks like a typo; it's presumably meant to be orgies.

When I was very young, in history class, I knew when studying the rise and fall of the Third Reich exactly how this all came about. How the people were so angry about the pain caused to them by the Treaty of Versailles that they were willing to tolerate just about any sort of thing to feel proud and strong again. The power of that. The absolute danger of that.

Never once did I think that could happen here. But when you have had a Republican Party for the last 40 years stealing from the poor/middle class to give to the rich and tilting everything to their theocratic ways all the while demonizing the Democrats for doing it to them? I mean, Jesus Christ. They have created this entire 50-70,000,000 people who are bitter and angry at Democrats for what the Republicans did to them.

They have created the conditions of us all fighting each other for the craps while they sit high upon their perch and watch us all perish.

These are not good times:

They're only terrorists until the next stolen election. After that they'll be the SS.

"I wouldn't be surprised if a senator or House member were killed," he said. "What started with abusive phone calls is now translating into active threats of violence and real violence."

Journalism can't even get genders right at this point?

I hate to say it and don't want to be a Debbie Downer/Kenan, but even then, they would find a few choice scapegoats and then go on with the fomenting of violence.

So the solution is to make it easier for the crazies to get guns?

I see... this is an issue NOW that Republican politicians are receiving death threats...  I see.  This is the cornerstone of the Republican party....  "If it doesn't affect me directly, it's not a problem."

If you want the crazies armed, then yes. All you need to do is look at who wants to arm the crazies and you can where this is going.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin.

It's already a felony. They don't need to pass anything at all.

This is somewhat atavistic. Republican/right-wing have advanced to mass murder by way of semi-automatic rifles in places like Walmart and other open spaces. Pretty much every mass shooting has been due to right-wing ideologies. Going back to political assassination is fairly quaint and old-fashioned.

Don't be dumb. People say all kinds of things when they are mad. You might also want to know that you can get as much time in jail for attempted murder as actual murder.
