“Time To Kill The Wealthy” Says Email To New York Legislators
Remember all the kerfuffle over Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs”? Think that’ll be repeated with this story?
Several influential New York state lawmakers have received threatening mails saying it is “time to kill the wealthy” if they don’t renew the state’s tax surcharge on millionaires, according to reports.
“It’s time to tax the millionaires!” reads the email, according to WTEN in Albany. “If you don’t, I’m going to pay a visit with my carbine to one of those tech companies you are so proud of and shoot every spoiled Ivy League [expletive] I can find.”
The email, with the threatening subject line of, “time to kill the wealthy,” was detailed and disturbing.
“How hard is it for us to stake out one of the obvious access roads to some tech company, tail an employee home and toss a liquor bottle full of flaming gasoline through their nice picture window into their cute house,” wrote the author of the email.
This is, of course, the logical conclusion of the “rich people are evil” meme that we’ve been hearing out of the Obama Administration since before his election… remember Joe the Plumber and “spread the wealth”?
And therefore, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for the Dinosaur Media to cover it.
