Yikes

This is not good.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into an apparent death threat against state Sen. Eric Johnson and his family.

A Feb. 20 e-mail hurled profanities at Johnson for his opposition to a bill intended to free a man convicted of aggravated child molestation.

“The seekers of justice” added the missive, signed only with the initials D.A.R, “will be watching you and your family (as you leave church, work, school etc.) – you can’t hide and when you least expect it all you have come to know and love will vanish in a flash of blinding justice.”

Having received more than my fair share of death threats, I have a lot of empathy for those going through a situation like the Senator and his family are going through now. You’d think people advocating a cause would want to refrain from being caustic.

  1. Our prayers are with Senator Johnson and the other elected officials. BTW, most death threats on public officials are intentionally unpublicized. Something similar happened to me last year by an illegal alien that did not like our campaign and we intentionally kept it quiet.

    Federalist stated what I have below in a previous post. BTW FederalGovernist (I am changing his name) this is why we have the right to bear arms.

    To Senator Johnson, I will keep your family in my prayers.

    Note to all do not ask what is below my name it is for Senator Johnson to understand only and believe me he does.

    The “right to bear arms” was a selling point, and only really applicable to the time when the Nation was still vulnerable to foreign invasion. That is obviously not the case anymore, you NRA whack-jobs need to stop claiming that you are fighting for your rights and start telling people the truth. You like to play with guns, that is all. Why do you need a pistol, or any firearm for that matter, in your car while at work? In case we are invaded? come on. and don’t even get me started on the Castle Doctrine.

    Tommy,

    I wondered if you were a brother. Where are you from? Are you an alumni or still in school? Are you coming to Columbus later this month?

    Doug,

    Don’t bother trying to guess. No brother will ever tell.

    You are such a simpleton. This is not why Americans were given the right to bear arms. Situations like this are not to be handled by a hick with a firearm.

  5. Federalist says:

    There are too many stakes at risk if simpletons, such as yourself, take the law into your own hands. Government was created for the purpose of protecting life, liberty, and property. When you “boys” with your guns take care of things, the result is the oppression of another’s liberty, and the taking of life (because that is what guns are made for).

    FEDERALIST,

    You have to be the absolute dumbest son of a bitch in the history of Peach Pundit posters. That’s saying a lot considering we have suffered the likes of LINDA and GOPeach. And it is even worse coming from me, because I name myself after dried crap that hangs from butt hair. But even I am smarter than you.

    Seriously, go eat shit and kill yourself. You are completely worthless. You are a drain on society. Your very existence just might prove that man evolved from dumb ass apes.
