Translation: Waaaaaaaaaaaaah. Eric Cantor is the real victim here. I can't believe you liberals are focusing on something trivial like people who die for lack of health care when Eric Cantor actually felt unsafe for a few days. And Eric Cantor is definitely the only person who has received death threats. Yep. We're pretty sure. Also, the guy that threatened Eric is gay. Gay! This means gays are bad people. Cry for Eric. He made a sad.
In the final hours of the health care debate, much was made over insults which were hurled at those members of Congress responsible for the massive government takeover. There was a clear effort to make the Democratic members, who supported the President's health care takeover, seem like "victims" who were taking principled stances for the people. The media was also quick to report word from Democratic leaders that 10 of their members had been victims of threats and acts of vandalism, which are inappropriate and have no place in civil discourse.
Meanwhile, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and his family were the targets of a death threat for which a Philadelphia man was arrested on Monday. While the media reported the threat against Rep. Cantor, they didn't point out that the suspect, Norman Leboon, claimed on his YouTube website that he is the "Messiah" of "gays and lesbians" and asks his homosexual "children" to leave the armed forces so that he might "smite" those remaining. This was not an insignificant omission. There is a clear pattern of intimidation that comes from many homosexual activists.
