[Updated: Added in link regarding NRCC]

Ter*ror*ism: noun. The use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes.

The terrorists have made death threats against legislators – and against their children and families.
And they’ve started to act.  They've vandalized. And they cut a gas line at a house occupied by the brother of a member of Congress, his wife, and their four small children.

Send those courageous members of Congress a sign of your appreciation for their courage.

Goal Thermometer
The FBI is getting involved – as they should. They should bring in their counterterrorism experts. Because that’s what’s going on.

The people making these threats and taking these actions are not patriots: they are terrorists.

(You would think that might make them rethink their support of policies of indefinite detention and special courts, no?)

And, by the way, the Republicans are refusing to condemn it.

Here’s the inspiring thing: we have members of Congress standing up to them and to the people who incite them – refusing to be intimidated or back down.

Send those courageous members of Congress a sign of your appreciation for their courage.

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.
