"Congressman Stupak, you baby-killing mother f***er... I hope you bleed out your a**, got cancer and die, you mother f***er," one man says in a message to Stupak.
"There are millions of people across the country who wish you ill," a woman says in a voicemail, "and all of those thoughts that are projected on you will materialize into something that's not very good for you."
CBS News also obtained copies of faxes sent to Stupak, which include racial epithets used in reference to President Obama and show pictures of nooses with Stupak's name.
Fortunately, on this score at least, I'm just a bit too young to have a memory of the 1960s, but you cannot be a liberal and think of the litany of violence done to figures on the left in that era. John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, and Martin Luther King were all shot down in their primes.
Tim McVeigh was certainly not on the left-side of the political sphere.
All Presidents get threats, but the deluge of threats and racial epithets against Obama have me, and should have every American, concerned about his safety.
This is getting fucking ridiculous, if the GOP doesn't stand up and decry this stuff LOUDLY AND THOROUGHLY they are eventually going to have blood on their hands.
But, of course, they won't -- and when it occurs they will do what many of them already do, blame the victim.
