Disgusting and Beyond Vile

From TPM:
The right-wing protest movement that amped up during the final debate over the health care reform bill in the House has stepped up another notch.

Rep. Bart Stupak (Democrat-MI) received a drawing of a noose faxed to his congressional office; and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (Democrat-SC) told CNN that his office had received a fax that depicted a noose.
Another Democratic member of congress had their office window smashed; yet another had the gas line at their home slashed.

This is beyond vile, and carries shades of the hate and threats spewed at McCain/Palin rallies during the 2008 presidential campaign.

If any Democratic member of congress is attacked and injured or killed, the Republican Party and their fascist tea-bagging base will be entirely to blame.
