Earlier this month, police detained a man at a health care town hall meeting held by Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) because he was carrying a sign declaring “Death to Obama” and “Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids.” Additionally, at least two members of Congress have reported receiving threatening faxes with pictures of Obama and the phrase “Death to All Marxists! Foreign and Domestic!” At a town hall event held by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) yesterday, a man compared Obama to Hiter and said he would “take a gun to Washington if enough of you would go with me”
A commenter notes that a T-shirt could get you arrested at a Bush event. A gun? They might have threatened to rape your mother and kill your kids.
