Unhinged and Dangerous… Leftist Threatens to Assassinate Republican Congressman Bobby Schilling


Rep. Bobby Schilling is a Republican Congressman from western Illinois.

A crazed and violent leftist has threatened to assassinate freshman Republican Congressman Bobby Schilling.
The threats are believed to have been made by Google user “FBInCIAnNSATerroristSlayer.”
The Hill reported:

The FBI and U.S. Capitol Police are investigating an online threat made against Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.) that offered a $75,000 reward for his assassination.



The FBI and Capitol Police also are investigating a similarly worded online threat against President Obama and his family and several other lawmakers.

Schilling learned of the threat against him in an email alert Tuesday night, according to his spokeswoman, Andrea Pivarunas. Sherriff’s deputies reportedly responded to the congressman’s district home and have passed the matter on to the FBI and Capitol Police.

“After receiving a very concerning email alert Tuesday evening, Rep. Schilling and his family are taking recommended precautions while the situation is investigated by relevant authorities,” wrote Pivarunas in an email to The Hill.



“He is grateful for the professionalism of local law enforcement in responding to this situation,” she added.



The email threat against Schilling states, “I will pay $75,000 for ASSASSINATING Illinois Congresswoman (sic) Bobby Schilling and any US Congressman, US Senator and FBI, CIA and NSA DIRECTORS and their FAMILY MEMBERS regardless of their age,” according to local news reports.

    I’m sure Democratic Party and Soros will find some money to contribute to the bounty , maybe make it an even million dollars or something ? I mean c’mon, no marxist plays with thousands anymore, its millions and billions now !

    This probably has NOTHING to do with a UNION member, right???

  • Neo

    This is sad

    Regardless of their age?

  • MrGoodWench

    So will Holder+Hussein provide the guns for these assasinations ?

  • Should take about 10 minutes to run down the culprit. Footprints, footprints people. Hard to run away from technology, but…most don’t realize this. Always watch your comments on line. Just a word of advice. Heck, may be a kid, but whoever it is asked for some serious trouble.

  • Nancy

    I have never understood people who make online threats. They have to know that it can be traced.

    It could be a kid, somebody who wants to inject some excitement into his life or a genuine nut, but whichever it is, or none, it is simply stupid.

    I suspect it has to do with the “occupy” group, they have been instigating so much mayhem. Liberals are the most violent foul mouth unkempt people in the world, the Romans use to call them barbariaans.

    Any chance Krugman blames Sarah Palin?

  • Johnny Nunya

    Jim,
    Where in The Hill report did you get “crazed and violent leftist”? The report says the FBI is investigating similar threats to Obama and his family. Typical republican spin

    I’m guessing the culprit has ties to the #occupy movement — and, therefore, the White House.

    Just this week’s iteration of “Manufactured Crisis”.

    This story has a funny odor about it. Note that there were “similarly-worded” messages mentioning Obama as a “payable” target…

    1. NOBODY on the right with two brain cells to rub together even CONSIDERS wanting Obama to get “whacked”. A d*(khead is one thing. A d*(khead MARTYR is TEN TIMES WORSE.

    2. If the offer was real: note that the political affiliation of the “payable” targets is not important. ALL THAT MATTERS is that somebody in the list of Incorrect People Who Must Die (all the people most Paulians and other listeners of late-nite AM-Radio tend to hate — all that’s missing is a chupacabra), dies.

    3. The #occupy ORGANIZERS want chaos. They need it. They don’t need their “Kent State” moment. They need their “Reichstag” moment.

    (And by #occupy organizers — I mean the current regime, and their global Communist puppetmasters.)

    OH, OT and BTW:

    CAIR has invited all the #OWS protesters to participate in Friday Prayers at Zucotti Park.

    http://weaselzippers.us/2011/10/20/cair-to-join-occupy-wall-street-protests-will-hold-friday-prayers-in-zuccotti-park/

    Q: Do muslim males rape blonde female reporters (and protesters, presumably) BEFORE or AFTER Friday Prayers? I suspect the answer is…

    …yes.

  • Voice of Reason

    I thought the vitriol was suppose to stop after the Tuscon shooting?

  • Isn’t it a bit premature to state that the unhinged loony in question is necessarily a leftist? I mean, the threatened persons cover pretty much the entire spectrum of US politics.

    I’d be more inclined to suggest that the loony in question is a tinfoil hat wearing UFOlogist.

  • donh

    I would look into Joe Biden and his Code Pink staffers before some OWS slacker. Bobby Schilling is the man who removed Union Thug Phil Hare from office.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Note also that Loughner was a LEFTIST who hated Gabby Giffords for the same reason the average KosKiddie hated her: BECAUSE SHE WASN’T A “TRUE” FELLOW TRAVELLER, NOT LEFTIST ENOUGH.

    I would bet a few quatloos that the IP address has been traced to a .edu domain.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I also, despite my theoretical gambling that it IS a lefty, agree with those saying, “wait — hold up — how’s he a lefty based on the text of the article?”

    The Left did that with Loughner. And Stack. And that Kentucky census worker who offed himself, trying to frame the local hicks.

    We shouldn’t be doing that, Jim. Unless you can point me to something which says they think he’s a Lefty.

    I think he’s a Lefty. Based on lots of good old hunch.

  • Ginger

    And I would bet they will cover it up unless they can link it to a republican/independant

    OT:

    By this time next year, this fad will have replaced Major League Baseball as the National Pastime:

    “A man is arrested at Occupy Toronto after allegedly smelling a woman’s feet and trying to get other protesters to drink urine.”

    Come on Jim. THAT deserves a freakin’ thread.

  • nina

    There are a lot of people who are schooled in controlling public policy who are in control right now. Obama kills leaders of Middle East countries to gain high fives off the muslim brotherhood, leading his OWS and “flash mobs” to believe that its ‘OK’ to knock off those who don’t subscribe to the little barry way. Just like biden pretty much put out the “call to arms” to the OWS and “flash mobs” to make sure that if the Rebubs reject the so-called jobs bill, go out and rape and kill as many people as you can so we can win the next election. Biden is a dumbass but he’s just following the company line on this one.

    I think this is one of Jim’s “turnabout is fair play” headlines.

    And, considering how many times I’ve been called a Conservative by the Washington Post and other people ‘way too quick to make assumptions, I just can’t get all worked up about it.

    By the way — you mentioned a good, hand-held video camera with nice sound capabilities — about $200 a while back. What was it?

  • John “I Know How to Read and Jim Doesn’t” Stanford

    Good even, Jim Hoft.

    I was wondering: Who do you think is more prominent: Bobby Schilling or Barack Obama?
    You seem to be mad that Schilling was threatened to be assassinated, so we can establish that assassination threats are wrong.

    If you read on, you see: “The FBI and Capitol Police also are investigating a similarly worded online threat against President Obama and his family and several other lawmakers.”

    Thus, the headline that would be more accurate (according to the Gateway Pundit Book of Style), would be
    “Unhinged and Dangerous… Rightist Threatens to Assassinate Democrat President Barack Huessein Obama”

    Its alway the mouth.

  • Winghunter

    This reminds me of a time that a written threat was mailed to a federal judge. The next day authorities were knocking at the idiot’s door and he asked, “How did you find me so quick?”

    The response was, “You included your return address on the envelope.”

  • Obama Nation

    It’s only a matter of time before these protests become violent.

  • Son of Walden

    It says , “… any US Congressman, US Senator and FBI, CIA and NSA DIRECTORS and their FAMILY MEMBERS”. How does that make this person a leftist. It makes sense as a placeholder word for a sub-literate blogger who can’t find a word that means “person that me no like.”

  • Johnny Nunya

    #20, if you think Loughner was a Leftist, you must be getting you’re news from blogs like this or “news” shows like Fox. Besides the fact that he likened women who get abortions to terrorists, or thought college was unconstitutional, HE SHOT A DEMOCRAT IN THE HEAD! By Jim Hoft logic, he is a crazed and violent Rightist. Right?
    #17, #18, #29, #34….Correct.
    This is a prime example of a right-wing vitriolic spin put on an otherwise politically neutral article. When will the right stop trying to paint the left as violent extremists? It is undeniable that the right wing in this country contains the large majority of extremist, vitriolic, fear-mongering, racist, hateful, angry, and ignorant whackjobs.
    #20 commented “I would bet a few quatloos that the IP address has been traced to a .edu domain.” A typical righty response which alludes to the notion that being in college and getting an education is somehow a bad thing.
    You people need to get your insults straight; do you want to paint the left as a bunch of weakling college hippie protesters, or as crazed violent extremists? You can’t do both. I mean you can, but then people are going to take what you say even less seriously than they already do…..

  • Johnny “Stanford” Davis

    Um, apparently you missed the part where the FBI is also investigating threats against Democrat President Barack Obama.

    New headline: “Unhinged and dangerous… Rightist thug threatens to assassinate Democrat President Barack Huessein Obama”
