Laura Ingraham called him an "Obamanut". Mika Brzezinski calls him a left wing purveyor of hate. And reliable ol' foxnews reported the story but did it in quite an interesting manner.

According to the complaint, Leboon told the FBI that he made the threatening video, which has been taken down, using the camera on his cell phone. He told authorities he's made 2,000 videos threatening people. He said he made the video early last week, though it's unclear whether it had anything to do with the passage of the healthcare bill last Sunday.

The health care vote triggered a slew of threatening voicemails and faxes toward congressional lawmakers, most of whom were House

Huh? Unclear? Does Foxnews really want us to believe that through their tremendous team of researchers, they can't determine that LeBoon's lunacy has NOTHING to do with healthcare?
Didn't they, Laura, or Mika check youtube?

Here he threatens Obama (so much for the "Obamanut"

Here he "warns" federal judges

Even Michelle Malkin calls him an "anti-semite".

These people (and, yes including Mika) are so quick to want to link Leboon's filth with the Healthcare debate in an effort to offset the argument that the right-wingers are inciting violence. None of his threats were healthcare related but these folks lump him into the left-wing bucket as if the threats were politically motivated.

No, this guy, LeBoon is no left winged extremist he's just a loon and they're using him to deflect the heat off of them. Don't you let them.

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.
