An official with SEIU, which has been sending members to town halls to counterbalance the Tea Party brigade, sends over this audio of a phone call the union says it received on its central voicemail system, threatening to teach union officials a thing or two about “the Second Amendment”…
The call seems to refer to reports today to scuffles in St. Louis between SEIU members and town hall rowdies.
“I suggest you tell your people to calm down, act like American citizens, and stop trying to repress people’s First Amendment rights,” the caller says. “That, or you all are gonna come up against the Second Amendment.”
More in a bit.
Update: Brian Beutler reports that an anti-health care reform organizer is explicitly calling on the troops to “carry” and if SEIU members get disruptive, to “hurt them.”
Update II: The threat comes after Rush Limbaugh went on the offensive against SEIU today and even gave out the address of the union’s St. Louis’ headquarters.
"I suggest you tell your people to calm down, act like American citizens"
I'm sorry. What, in your deluded opinion, should American citizens ACT LIKE??? Perhaps bringing their own guns to the town hall meetings too?
If we see an incident in the next few weeks involving a town hall meeting, and some lunatic who opens fire at one, I won't be surprised. At all.
