DC Tea Party Received Bomb Threat

By Wyatt Earp | September 13, 2009

Democracy in action.

Oh, and the most priceless part about this threat? It was made on September 11th. Stay classy, idiots! Ed Morrissey has the details:

The Washington DC Tea Party appears to be a big success, but it’s not for lack of trying among the movement’s more lunatic opponents. Yesterday, the DC Metro police evacuated the offices of Freedomworks after several threats, including a bomb-threat phone call that police considered credible enough to investigate:

Tens of thousands of anti-big government activists are expected in Washington on Saturday as part of a “March on Washington” being organized by FreedomWorks, a conservative group headed by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-Texas.

A FreedomWorks staffer told ABC News that the organization’s offices at 601 Pennsylvania Avenue were evacuated on Friday afternoon by DC Metro Police because of a bomb scare.

The threat came when a man called the FreedomWorks main line and told the organization’s female receptionist: “I put a bomb in your building, bitch.”

Lovely. Why is it that the kooks always forget to take their medicine then run right for the phone?

We owe a big thanks to the Metro police for keeping things secure, but they shouldn’t have had to waste their time in the first place. It’s doubly ironic that these terroristic threats — and that’s what they are — took place on the eighth anniversary of 9/11, an irony apparently lost on the nutcases trying to disrupt a peaceful demonstration. It’s simply despicable.

Of course, if this situation were reversed, the MSM would have already declared the anonymous caller a white male, Republican Nazi who hails from the Deep South. Me? I just think the guy is a mentally disturbed tool.

    A friend of mine pointed something out to me.

    This guy wasn’t a tool, Wyatt. Tools have uses.

    This guy was a prong: something absolutely useless… ;)

    Hmmm wonder if it came from the offices of SEIU or ACORN? Or even Van Jones himself, channeling a little bit of Mao? LOL
