Here in MA, if you hang out in certain circles you might hear things like how the leader of the Boston Tea Party one day had bruises all up and down her shins from being kicked by union thugs at some rally, but since that doesn’t really make news (and who wants it to, really?) we can focus on the BMG hot spot du jour, WISCONSIN!
So as we all know the progressive/union alliance went completely berserk when democrats quite literally fleeing the state failed to prevent the end of collective bargaining on benefits (note: not pay), exactly the thing which is currently dooming so many blue states.
So what was the reaction of the left? Oh well, you know, just the usual – protests, chants, recalls, death threats…
Death threats? No way! Only right wingers do that crap, as we all know from the intelligent analysis of the [ed note: utterly abhorrent and FYI not right wing] Giffords attack. But wait, what’s this? A leftist has just been arrested for vile death threats against republicans in WI. (Except that she hasn’t actually been taken in – weird huh?)
MADISON (WKOW) — Authorities say 26-year-old Katherine Windels sent disturbing emails to 16 Republican senators, repeatedly threatening to kill them.
distrubring, eh? But seriously, what could be so disturbing?
According to the complaint, Windels told the senators “you will be killed and your families [sic] will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks.” She threatened to “put a nice little bullet in your head,” and made reference to several bombs.
Yikes. And, trust me, that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Unfortunately, it also seems that she might be a local teacher:
News reports identify her as Katherine Windels of Cross Plains, Wisconsin, but don’t say too much else about her. James Simpson’s piece linked above notes that Jim Hoft and Underground Conservative did a little digging and discovered a Katherine Windels of Cross Plains of the same age (26) who teaches children in pre-school and kindergarten. The picture in her MySpace and Peek profiles looks remarkably similar to the WKOW mugshot (from 2004) used in the story, and it would be a very strange coincidence indeed to find two women of the same exact name, age, and appearance in a town of less than 4,000 people.
Ouch. But, lets be fair – this could happen with anyone, anywhere. No one can dispute that. I am not going to go tarring all teachers (!!) or all lefties with homicidal tendencies when part of their entitlements are challenged. All I will do – and I mean it! – is point out a few other things that have also gone on in the same arena, at the same time:
“The Only Good Republican is a Dead Republican”
RELOAD: Repeal Walker
“Hang them all”
“Wisconsin Tea Party Patriots State Coordinator Michael Hintze told police when he answered a call on his cell phone about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, a male voice “asked if he was wearing a bullet-proof vest” and then hung up.”
Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your familes will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell. Read below for more information on possible scenarios in which you will die.
Earlier Thursday, police reported finding dozens of rounds of live ammunition outside the Capitol.
Dane County deputies found 11 rounds near the State Street entrance Thursday morning, UW-Madison Police Chief Susan Riseling said. Twenty-nine rounds were found near the King Street entrance, and one round was found near the North Hamilton Street entrance, Riseling said.

Some of that will, I hope, give the few people here who rushed to assign all violence to the right after the Giffords tragedy, some second thoughts.
Finally, and also linked above, take a good look at your close ally:
So I guess, finally, Good luck with your recalls. Looks like you are in good hands. Maybe Capuano didn’t really “misspeak” after all.
