Bitter on Twitter: Wisconsin Authorities Probe Death Threats Against Gov. Walker

Perry Chiaramonte, Fox News, June 6, 2012

Critics of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker took to Twitter hours after he trounced his opponent in a recall election, threatening his life and catching the attention of authorities.

Several tweets explicitly called for the assassination of Walker, a Republican who angered public sector employees and labor unions by seeking to revamp the state’s beleaguered pension system.

“Somebody gone kill Scott Walker man,” read one tweet posted by user @PureeSCRUB.

“Someone from the NRA should shoot Scott Walker in the head, GTA-style,” said another user referring to violent video game Grand theft Auto.

“Scott walker will die within the next week ive already payed for the hit,” boasted a twitter user with the handle @caleb_white

The threats were strong enough for the Milwaukee Police Department and the state Department of Justice to launch investigations to determine how credible they were.

    Scott Walker: a Republican with a spine.

    Meanwhile these are the p.c. white wusses protesting against Walker.

    Not surprised most death threats against Scott Walker are from blacks.  The public employee reform disproportionately affected black state and local employees, because heavily white cop and fire unions were exempt. 

    “Someone from the NRA should shoot Scott Walker in the head, GTA-style,”
    said another user referring to violent video game Grand theft Auto.

    He signed CCW for WI.  This won’t happen.

      The afrovoodoos know that their make-work, do-nothing AA “jobs” are on the line. Without them, there is no black middle class. 

  • Church_of_Jed

    The blacks will get away with it. 

    The White investigators will gather the evidence, present the findings to the Mighty Whitey Guv’nah, and his thinking  will suddenly “evolve” into “We should let by gones be bygones and let sleeping dogs lie- to peruse this case right now will hurt race relations, delay racial reconciliation, and become another obstacle to undoing White privilege.”

      Shades of Juan MexCain when he found out about spoonie voter fraud.

    Fascist liberals will NEVER be prosecuted for this.
    Wisconsin is a sick infestation of socialists.

    Now, if the twitterer said “Obama is black – and BAD”
    he’d get 300 years.

    I think that may be a little excessive there friend….I’m not mocking you, just sharing my opinion.

      Hi mike,

      I think Jupiter7 is right on the money.  Not trying to spark a fight, I just think his remark about the veneer of civilization being remarkably thin is extremely accurate.

      I heard a phrase a long time ago… dunno if it was my Pa or not, but it sounds like him:

      “We are only 9 meals away from total anarchy.”

      Look what happened in NOLA after Katrina.  I expected whites to act civilized, despite being in dire straits, and the Uruk to, well, act like Uruk.

      And after folks missed enough meals to get truly hungry, Hell broke loose.

      The veneer of civilization IS remarkably thin, and Uruks need only the vaguest of excuses or perceived slights to go on a rampage.  Not electing their Messiah is the perfect excuse for them to rampage nationwide, wherever they are found in numbers (read that:  in cities).

      If I were a white living in a city with a sizeable Uruk population, I would make plans to either stand my ground, or have a Plan B set up to get out of the city pronto on Election Day.

      • mikejones91

        Very true. See you emphasized on what your talking about so I guess it’s easier to picture.

     Blacks don’t riot in November.

  • Up to my neck in CA

    Look for a movie to be made by Steven Speilberg named “The Sh!t Talkers”.

  • Global Minority

    I don’t think they will shut down immigration. But I do think they will riot. And Marshal Law will be delcared and Whitey will be to blame for blacks roiting.

    • The__Bobster

      True, TPTB have made sure that turd world immigration has continued unabated despite the deep recession. It’s all part of their agenda.

      And Romney won’t do anything to stop it. Hell, he even promises put more STEM professionals out of work.

  • splitsing

    I can barely read any of that drivel.  Any shock that there is an “education gap” with “deez peeps, gnom’sayin? fo realzzz”?

    • The__Bobster

      And these are some of the better ones who are actually holding down jobs.

  • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

     Almost all black riots are the direct or indirect consequence of a law enforcement action against a black.  I just can’t grok rioting over an election.  What might be possible is that if Obama loses, and during the aftermath of frustration, a cop has to use some sort of relatively inordinate force against a black, that might set cities up in flames.

    • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

      Blacks riot over college basketball games.

      Also, it could well be that an Obama loss in November would be seen as an action by all of white America against the first black president, and by extension against all of black America.

      Or it might just serve as a good excuse to break things, loot stores,  scream, yell, jump up and down, fling poo, and otherwise play to their base instincts.

      Perhaps there won’t be riots if Obama loses, but we certainly can’t rule it out just because it would be a different scenario than the usual.

      • http://countenance.wordpress.com/ Question Diversity

         I don’t know if I would call what they do after ball games a full blown riot.  I would call it more a collective group “C.O.” O stands for “out,” and I think you know what the “C” means.

        When I think of riots, I’m thinking multi-day events involving all sorts of violent crimes over a widespread area involving hundreds or thousands of combatants.

  • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

     Obviously that tweet was some Ebonics-speaker trying to be clever by
    both saying something hostile to Gov. Walker and hateful to NRA members
    at the same time.

    Or, perhaps more likely, one who is so unimaginably ignorant that he really believes the media’s constant portrayal of the NRA as a pack of bloodthirsty freaks who just want to shoot every and any thing they can.

    Please look at Greece for an example of what happens when all
    the government jobs are are unionized and they try to “solve”
    unemployment by hiring more government workers.  It works until you max
    out your card!

    “In the carboniferous epoch, they promised abundance for all,
     By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul.
     But though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
     And the Gods Of The Copybook Headings said ‘If you don’t work you will die.’”

    -Kipling

    are they holding a wisconsin state fair this year so that the black “CHILDREN” and the poor impoverished “YOUTH” who are arrested and locked up for NO REASON except their color and who want REPERATIONS FOR SLAVERY
    have an opportunity to attack white men woman and children in mobs like they did last year? its racist if they dont have the fair.

    Does anyone remember Gabrielle Giffords and the new era of courteous discourse?

    The right was vilified for something they, we,  didn’t even do. They, we, were accused of inciting hate against liberals BY the media.

    Holder was busy today being called on the carpet in front of Issa, getting grilled about Fast & Furious.  He doesn’t have time to investigate Tweet threats against Whitey, he’s got interference to run for Obongo and the DOJ.

      Thanks for posting that, heres the “best of”  IMHO from the comment section.
      “The thing about this that’s really disturbing… and about many, many other examples of the same sort of rant… is that this black man may actually BELIEVE his own bull$hit.”

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FWMCMK6U5OWRHYIYJAF2TPFL2U thomas

    This is nothing more than window dressing! After a comprehensive “investigation,” it will be determined this was simply a misunderstanding, resulting from overzealous recall participation. Move along folks, nothing to see here….

    Look for Steven Speilburg to produce “Sh!t Talkers”.

    Read this. He doesn’t mention race but it’s clear ALL of these problems are “non-white” problems.

    Don’t forget about the peace loving DWL’s in WI. The will over come!

    i was in wisconsin this weekend and heard an ad for the Wisconsin Broadcastors Association. they are having a job later this month and they strongly encourage women and minorities to attend. That means two things. first it means any woman or minoirty that is half way qualified and shows up is virtually guarenteed a job. it also means white men will have to compete with each other for the remaining jobs.
