Here we go again, with another “isolated” incident of violent Tea Party threats against a liberal public official who is trying to reduce gun violence in her state. Colorado’s state legislature adopted four gun-control measures earlier this month, two of which were sponsored by Representative Fields. One requires universal background checks on all firearms purchases in the state, and the other limits ammunition magazines to 8 rounds for handguns and 15 rounds for larger firearms.
Tea Party-type psycho Franklin Glenn Sain, 42, was arrested on Feb. 22 on charges of harassing Rep. Rhonda Fields (D) and unlawfully attempting to influence a public official. This sounds bad, but wait until you see what this degenerate Tea Party-type lunatic actually said and did.
In an email dated February 15th Sain said,
“Hopefully somebody Gifords [sic] both of your asses with a gun,”
referring to Representative Fields and her colleague, state Rep. Beth McCann (D).
KMGH-TV reported Sain denied being a racist in follow-up phone calls with authorities, despite his use of slurs against both Fields and President Barack Obama. Investigators say Sain’s emails repeatedly refer to Fields, who is African American, with obscene and racist language and also use a racial slur to describe President Barack Obama, according to an arrest affidavit.
I guarantee there is not enough law enforcement, or military to stop an all out overthrow of this government if you or that (racial slur) President tries to take our guns. Guarantee, we will make world war I and II look like child’s play, many will die…be prepared.
This is Tea Party rhetoric that one can read every day on numerous Tea Party websites, discussion forums and Facebook pages.
In an ironic twist, Sain is the chief operating officer at SofTec Solutions Inc., an information technology company that does work for the government and health care companies. Also ironic, his name is “Sain.”
Sain admitted he had sent phone messages and emails using profanity and “racist names” to Fields, but added: “I didn’t threaten her,” he said in an arrest affidavit.
Denver’s KGMH Reports:
“According to the affidavit, police suspect Sain also sent Fields an anonymous letter that refers to the lawmaker with the same obscene, racist phrase repeatedly used in emails and phone messages that Sain admitted sending to the lawmaker. The letter also contains a reference to “30 round magazines” used in Sain’s emails.”
“I will keep my 30 round magazines. There will be blood! I’m coming for you (expletive),” states the letter, received at Fields’ Capitol office on Feb. 21.
The letter names Fields and her daughter and states, “Death to Both.”
According to KGMH other Colorado Democratic lawmakers have received similar violent and disgusting threats. Democratic State Sen. Jessie Ulibarri told KGMH, “Over the course of this last week, I’ve received death threats. I’ve received rape threats against my 2 1/2-year-old daughter and other members of my family, because I’m standing up against gun violence.”
We know that’s how the Tea Party-types roll. Americans Against the Tea Party is following the story and will report more information as it becomes available.
