This Is Just Sick

Here’s my obligatory non-rapture related post for the day.

Commenters on Tea Party have nothing better to do than hide behind alias’ or anonymous handles and threaten a 16 year-old who challenged Michelle Bachman to a debate.

 A New Jersey teenager says she’s received threats since challenging U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann to a debate over the Constitution.

Ann Myers challenged the tea party favorite in a letter dated April 29. After it started getting media attention last weekend, commenters on tea party websites have threatened to publish her home address and some have threatened violence.

The 16-year-old from Cherry Hill says several commenters have called her a “whore.”

Just a few thoughts:

  1. Scumbags hide behind anonymous internet handles.
  2. You’re never truly anonymous on the internet…just saying.
I hope someone puts an end to this douchebaggery.

  2. Bachmann should condemn these people right away and say they have no place in the Tea Party. I’ll take a Tea Partier’s ethics over a Unionists any day of the week. I’d be more concerned about getting violently attacked by some Leftist supporter of Obama than a Tea Partier.

    • I agree that Bachmann should condemn these people. I disagree with your assessment of Tea Party ethics and violence of the “Leftist supporter of Obama.” I think recent actions by the Tea Party have shown that both sides are prone to violent behavior/rhetoric when it suits there purpose.
