Threats To “Destroy Hannity And Limbaugh”
FreedomWorks, one of Washington's biggest supporters of the Tea Party movement, has been receiving death threats and profanity-laced phone calls. The frequency and intensity of the calls have reached such heights that the organization is vacating its downtown location near the FBI and moving to a high-security building near the U.S. Capitol. “We are going to destroy and obliterate Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. We know where Rush lives and we know where Sean lives,” a woman threatened on a recent anonymous call to FreedomWorks. “We are not going to go away; we are going to destroy you. I can’t wait till Sean Hannity’s head-piece explodes. Those two guys are dead in the water,” the woman concludes. “I don’t have a head-piece,” Sean responded. “Do we know who these lunatics are? It would be nice considering they’re threatening to destroy Rush and I.” To listen to the audio of the call, click here.
Boehner: The American People Want Change Now
Sean was joined by House Minority Leader John Boehner in the show’s second hour and discussed the upcoming election season. Boehner expressed optimism that he would replace Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House in the fall. “We have a real opportunity, it’s still an uphill climb, but that is our goal. We want to continue our fight for a smaller, less costly and more accountable government in Washington, D.C.,” the minority leader said. Sean expressed his concern that many people may have set their expectations too high for Republicans regaining control of the House. While Boehner agreed nothing is certain, he expressed confidence going into the fall elections. “When you look at the amount of intensity that I see as I go around the country and go around my own district, I can tell you that the American people want change and they want it now."
Hillary Reports Arizona To Human Rights Commission
The State Department included a Justice Department lawsuit against Arizona's immigration law in a United Nations human rights report to show how the “U.S. rule of law can be an example to the world.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton included the dispute in the report because she thought the U.S. could serve as "a model" to other nations. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called the move “downright offensive.” “How about somebody report Hillary’s husband to the Human Rights Commission for the way he abused his office, and used his office to abuse people,” Sean responded. “If that wasn’t a human rights abuse, what is?”
