More narrative fail: We keep being told that the right needs to curb its uncivil rhetoric so the loons on our side don’t do stuff like this, but the dangerous loons almost always turn out to be lefties::
A self-described Massachusetts “political activist” was arrested Monday night and charged with sending a threatening e-mail to Florida Rep. William Snyder, R-Stuart, an hour after the Arizona shooting that killed six and critically injured U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
The unsigned e-mail, sent to Snyder’s state House of Representatives address on Jan. 8, told the legislator to “stop that ridiculous law if you value your and your familie’s lives.”
Snyder has proposed a bill cracking down on illegal immigration for Florida in a manner similar to what Arizona has done.
Snyder said Tuesday he reported the e-mail to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office and state Capitol security officials in Tallahassee.
According to TCPalm.com and other published reports, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that Manuel E. Pintado, 47, of Northampton, Mass., used a public access wireless connection at a Starbucks a few blocks from his home to send the e-mail.
According to the report, Pintado said that he meant no physical harm to Snyder, “but added he was glad the e-mail made him nervous.”
As I’ve said many times before, if the left were truly concerned about civility in discourse, it would be policing its own side, rather than constantly attacking the peaceful tea party.
