The tea baggers are taking their cues and shutting down our democracy -again. They did it in 2000. Now they are doing it with healthcare reform. They tell Chris Dodd to cmmit suicide. They physically threaten dem congress persons. Tonight we learn of death threats against Rep Miller of NC just for wanting to host a townall. The police are involved and its deemed too dangerous to go on with t he event. Tommorrow we have a chance to tell these people no!

These Right wing tactics are ones we know well. My family learned them back in Europe. In the 30s poltical discussion was shut down by thugs comming to potlical salons etc and by using threats and violence shut down their right to speak openly.

In other news the tea baggers are terrorizing our fellow members of Congress and we must be aggressive and make sure these events are fair to constituents. Rep Miller today has received many death threats-so serious the police are involved.

Dem Congressman's Office: His Life Has Been Threatened Over Health Care Bill
By Eric Kleefeld - August 5, 2009, 5:54PM

Rep. Brad Miller (D-NC) will not be hosting any town hall events this August -- instead, he's making himself available to constituents for one-on-one meetings about health care reform -- and at least part of the reason is this: His offices have received threatening phone calls, including at least one direct threat against his life.

"We had no town hall events scheduled for the August recess anyway, but in light of everything that's happened -- we have received a threatening phone call in the D.C. office, there have been calls to the Raleigh office," said Miller communications director LuAnn Canipe, in an interview with TPM. The threatening call in question happened earlier this week.


They haven't heard anything back from the police yet, but they did get the caller's number. So this could develop into something soon enough.

(Special thanks to TPM Reader ML.)

Congressman Gene Green of Houston had a town hall-notice a pattern-and faced boos, howls and threats. And luckily the reporter asked how many were actually living in his dsitrict. Turns out not many. The tea baggers drove in like they did for Tom DeLay in the 2000 Florida coup.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
