As I mentioned yesterday, Ted Cruz is now getting death threats from a man named Troy Gilmore, Jr. who has given out Cruz’s home address and has exhorted his fellow unhinged leftwing wackos to go to Cruz’s home and attack him. This is hardly surprising considering all the violent eliminationist rhetoric out there falsely blaming Cruz for the entire shutdown debacle.
But what is more pathetic—and disturbing, is that 17th CD Dem Rep. Cheri Bustos has been taking campaign money from the very people who have been calling for violence against Cruz.
According to the Daily Caller, Gilmore’s Facebook page is filled with threatening unhinged hateful rants against Cruz containing links to websites paid for by the DNC, DCCC and a Democrat colleague of Bustos, Rep. Brad Schneider.
Bustos has received financial backing from the DCCC and possibly the others as well. If she honestly cares about civil discourse and is against violence to Cruz and his children; if she has any sense of honor, ethics and civility, she will denounce this hate speech from these Democrat hate groups and return the money she has received from them.
