While the lamestram media has been filling the airwaves with their reports of faux racism and imagined threats of violence, Patterico uncovered some real and chilling death threats. Warning - the language is harsh and the message is, at the very least, disturbing:
There is justifiably some concern relating to the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, and violent threats. It’s just not quite what you’ve been hearing in Big Media.This dangerous radical leftist -- a fan of Olbermann and Madow, remember -- has been calling for the assassination of Gov. Palin and the murder of her family! Here are just a few of the messages he Tweeted:
On Twitter, a fellow calling himself Jason Brown... is threatening to kill Sarah Palin and her family.
Alert FReepers have archived all of the screenshots, as reported here, and they have forwarded them to the authorities.@sEaTtLe_MeTrO Death 2 Palin family them retarded hillbillies take teabaggers w/ you hateful bitchand this:We cant expect gov to intervene we must shoot Gen. Palin on site be 4 her troops strike again!and this:@interactionswst one word racism choose sides plain and simply that bitch Palin launch an attack, she need 2 b shot on site!and this:@Palin360 you need 2 b assassinated soon we ll settle 4 one of the family if not u!and this:maybe it takes a murder or 2 2 get the point across take aim at radical TP membersand this:@BRIANGLAD Palin will b met with gunfire her or her family[...]

and this:#hcr proof that Palin targeted Va. rep. w/ her map and someone followed up we have 2 stop this terrorist name Sarah someone please kill her!Damn violent teabaggers!
For some reason this one seems particularly ominous:Does anyone have that alaskan address 4 the Palins?
While the leftist media attack dogs are busy barking up the wrong tree, Ron Devito points to where the real threats and demonstrated violence are coming from:
During the health care town hall meetings, it was SEIU thugs and Obama’s people who committed acts of violence. During the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign, Joanne – a friend I campaigned with – was routinely called a four-letter word that roughly rhymes with “country” and was twice nearly physically attacked for her support of Gov. Palin. The perpetrators of these acts? Obama supporters. Joanne also bore witness to an Obama supporter attacking someone campaigning for the McCain-Palin side.Take action! E-mail Patterico's post to every local and national media outlet and ask them to prove that their coverage is balanced by reporting these threats on Gov. Palin and her family. If you're a person of faith, pray that God protect Sarah Palin and her family to keep them safe from any harm and evil. And this time, we have no qualms about asking Gov. Palin and her team for one small favor -- please beef up your security detail. Finally, we call upon MSNBC to restrain the likes of Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. They have incited too many unhinged leftists toward violence already. It's well past time for them to back away from their dangerous narrative of hate.
Leftists talk trash about the TEA Party and 912 movements. “They’re fomenting violence,” leftists scream. Number of violent acts committed by TEA Party and 912 members? None. Number of politicians shot at by members of the TEA Party movement? None. Number of death threats made by TEA Partiers? None. The other leftist canard regarding the TEA Party movement is “racism.” Leftists proclaim loudly, “they hate Obama, because he’s black.” I have news for you: our issues with Obama have absolutely nothing to do with race or color. We find his policies repugnant, worthless, disgraceful, and contemptible, just like Jimmy Carter’s. Unlike the leftists; however, we are addressing our issues via legal means and doing it the American way. It’s leftists who acting out of blind hatred wanted President Bush assassinated. Now they’re after the entire Palin family.
This is deadly serious. It's dangerous, and it must end now.
