Norman Leboon, a convert to Islam, was charged Tuesday with making death threats against the House Republican Whip, Eric Cantor, R-Va, and his family. The threat came in a YouTube video that Leboon posted last Wednesday.
In it, Leboon says: “Remember Eric . . . our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you’re a Lucifer, you’re a pig, a greedy [expletive] pig. You’re an abomination. You receive my bullets in your office. Remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer’s abominations.”
In calling Cantor a pig, Leboon may have been thinking of the passages of the Quran where Allah transforms the disobedient Jews into apes and pigs.
His threats to Cantor come after the congressman’s office was shot up over the weekend, and he received anti-Jewish threats from left-wingers.
A difficult Pesach for the Cantor family, I am sure.
But if you are waiting for the mainstream media to cover this, put down the bong. Leftist media propagandists and their despotic leaders continue to smear and slander good, decent Americans who are trying to save the country from subversives, traitors, over-throwers and savages.
While the left and their media handmaidens rammed a bone-crushing, freedom-killing Obamacare rout though Congress, Americans had to listen to the wailing and caterwauling of the media over fake threats to Democratic criminals.
I called it last weekend in my piece at Big Journalism and at my blog AtlasShrugs.com: a specious charge was made that a protester shouted racial slurs at the Congressional Black Caucus and “spat” at another. These incidents are widely disputed.
I am not sure why Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Black Caucus deliberately chose to walk through the crowd as it shouted “kill the bill,” but it sure sounded like a setup from the beginning.
Meanwhile, the media has no interest in real death threats coming from the left. For example, last Friday a series of tweets by leftists called for murder and mayhem against Sarah Palin, her family, the tea parties and . . . Eric Cantor.
But as withthe arrest of Leboon and his threats to Cantor, as far as the mainstream media is concerned, this is not news. No need to investigate. It’s all good.
The same pattern was repeated when two bricks were thrown through the window of Republican Party offices in the Charlottesville, Va., area. The media yawned: the victims were the wrong kind.
It would be laughable, if the stakes weren’t so high.
I hope people will turn off their TVs (Fox included), stop their subscriptions to their local newspapers, and start making informed news choices, because this Obama propaganda is out of hand.
One chief perpetrator is Donny Luzatto, editorial page editor for the Virginian-Pilot, in Cantor’s home state, the state where the bricks went through the windows of the Republican Party offices. I blame Luzatto’s hate-filled leftist rhetoric for helping create the overheated atmosphere in which conservatives and Republicans are physically threatened.
Recently Luzatto warned hysterically, “Something horrible is coming. We know it. We can feel it. The national shouting match has become so crazed, so hyperbolic, so frenzied, that violence seems almost inevitable now. The victim might be a politician. It might be a media figure. More likely, it will be a bystander. But there will be blood sometime soon.”
In June 2008, Norman Leboon contributed $505 to the presidential campaign of Barack Obama. Is this the kind of person the Democrats are attracting?
