How Quickly Would We be Arrested if We Announced We Wanted to Poison a Wingnut Theocratic Supreme Crt Justice?
I know, I know... we all now need bleach for our eyes after seeing her.
So, Ann the Emaciated Hag Coulter announced on Thurs: "We need somebody to put rat poisoning in Justice Stevens' creme brulee. That's just a joke, for you in the media." Oh, so that is a joke for those in the media... but it is not a joke for Justice Stevens? How is her comment not a threat? Especially in light of the fact that in 2005, Judge Rowland Barnes was shot and killed and Judge Joan Lefkow's husband and mother were killed in retaliation for a decision she made from the bench. Death threats were also made to Judge George Greer, who was in charge of the Terry Schiavo fiasco, too. It is a crime to threaten a judge... let alone put a call out (as Coulter clearly did in her statement) for a specific method of assassination of a judge. It is one thing to call all Dems members of the "abortion party" (although I would say that it is too bad that her own mother didn't rip her untimely from the womb... but I digress) but in this vomitous attack, she has clearly crossed the line from Neo-Con/BushCo propaganda spewer to criminal, and she has pissed some people off. In fact, here are specific details on who to email if you feel that Coulter's death threats have crossed the line. And please keep in mind that Coulter is a LAWYER.. She should be disbarred for threatening a judge... ANY judge ... on that basis alone. She can't claim she didn't know this: "Federal criminal statute, 18 U.S.C. §115 (a)(1)(B). The law states: "Whoever threatens to assault…. or murder, a United States judge… with intent to retaliate against such… judge…. on account of the performance of official duties, shall be punished [by up to six years in prison]. If Coulter claims she didn't know threatening a judge was a crime-- and keep in mind her own father is a lawyer, too-- then she must be the worst lawyer in the world. She already wins the prize for worst impression of a human female award.
