Sen. Ron Johnson: Entire Wisconsin Legislature Received Death Threats

The Lonely Conservative

I don’t hear Democrats calling for the end of death threats to conservatives in the Wisconsin legislature, do you? National Democrats are pouring money into the Wisconsin recall election and invoking the Koch brothers as the boogeymen, but nobody’s said “boo” about these threats of violence. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) believes it’s important to spread the word, even if the media ignores the situation.

Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that every member of the state legislature in Wisconsin received an email that said “we’re going to put a bullet in your head. We know where you and your family live.”

Johnson, speaking in Washington, D.C. at America’s Future Foundation’s annual gala, said that at the height of Gov. Scott Walker’s fight against the unions, every member of the state legislature was threatened.

“The story really wasn’t told properly — we had every member of the state legislature get an email that said, ‘We’re going to put a bullet in your head. We know where you and your family lives.’ Now, that wasn’t reported very well because I guess that’s not newsworthy when it’s a union thug making a threat against a conservative.”

Johnson told The Daily Caller that the high level of intimidation and political divisiveness in Wisconsin is due to Walker’s fight to reign in spending pushed by public sector unions.

“Scott Walker did a hard thing — he actually solved a problem, and he did it in a way that recognized and addressed one of the growing problems here, and that is really the power of the public sector unions and, I would say, the unholy alliance between elected officials that get supported by those unions and the unions themselves,” Johnson told TheDC.

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, ‘Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break’? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a ‘Nazi.’ He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a ‘doughnut eating Gestapo.’ He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him the more tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn’t care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said, ‘PROUD UNION MEMBER’ I try to have a little fun each day now that I’m retired. It’s important to my health.

    This stuff is for real. This is a fascist movement, and violence is par for the course. Now does everyone start to understand why Barack Obama advocated for a ‘civilian security force’ as powerful as the US military? If this lunatic is re-elected, all hell is going to break loose:

    Show Scott Walker some love. You can do that by logging into Milwaukee Journal’s website http://www.jsonline.com/ find an article about Scott Walker (there are many) and leave some commentary in his favor. I believe we can help the morale of the left best by demoralizing them. I am censured there now because some pansy commie found it offensive when I likened their recall effort to the Black Knight on “The Holy Grail” and posted this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRUe-gz690
    Then some leftist clown got upset when I commented on an article about Ohio unions coming to aid in the recall effortand quipped “Are they going to help dig up the vote?” and added this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRUe-gz690 . That’s just two examples, I could go on and on. I could sign up for a new account but with my attitude it probably wouldn’t last long. So I’m just asking everyone to help out if you can. Thanks

    Where the Hell is the media on this?? Even Fox hasn’t mentioned that I can recall.

    The union thugs and progs know damn well what’s coming in November…And this is the only way they know how to react. They’ve been at the helm since 2006/2008 and the majority of voters in 2010 sent democrats a loud message, with foreshadowing of whats to come in Novemeber.

    If they want to get violent, I say bring it on. We’re ready to fight back.

    “I don’t hear Democrats calling for the end of death threats to conservatives in the Wisconsin legislature, do you?”

    You do now. That’s unacceptable. However, I suspect this was one mass email form none lone idiot but no one seems to wan to talk about that and rather condemn all Democrats for it.

    Well, I’m sure they were KIND and COMPASSIONATE death threats. Probably written on unicorn stationery.
