Another story of new threats against elected officials in the state of Utah. As usual, somebody seems to be upset over immigration.
Two state lawmakers running immigration reform bills were e-mailed perceived death threats over the weekend and Utah Highway Patrol authorities confirmed Monday they are investigating the matter and taking it “very seriously.”
Reps. Stephen Sandstrom, R-Orem, and Chris Herrod, R-Provo, were the only two state lawmakers to receive the one-and-a-half page letter, confirmed top state law enforcement officials, who said they were too early in the investigation to determine the severity of the threat.
Those nasty Tea Partiers are at it again. They’ve probably been watching too much Fox News or listening to Rush Limbaugh or something. Oh… wait.


The letter is signed the “United Front for Defense of Immigrants” and features the images of Che Guevara and, separately, a semiautomatic weapon with a banana clip. It isn’t directly addressed to Sandstrom or Herrod.
Instead, it is headed with the words, “In response to HB-70 (Communique III-2/11/11)” and references Arizona — the home of the nation’s first enforcement-only law that became the epicenter of the immigration debate.
The letter says: “A comprehensive immigration reform has never and will never be established in Utah through peaceful dialogs [sic], civil discourse, or the Mormon Church involvement. It will be established as any other revolutionary changes always have been … by pen and gun, by word and bullet, by tongue and teeth.”…
So who exactly is this United Front for Immigration Reform? A little digging reveals an apparent connection between them and Casa Aztlan of the “Aztlan” Movement. Why the Aztecs would be interested in “retaking” Utah, given that they never lived that far north, is not clear.


Yep. Sounds like the evil tea partiers to me. When, oh when, will these people ever be stopped?

That is actually my representative (Sandstrom), and I actually know where he lives a few blocks from me. It is very scary to have death threats here. They should always be taken seriously and those people should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

What's actually more scary is that his address was on his public house page. I hope he removes it to keep his family safe.

Democratic politicians likely get death threats at 10 times the rate as right wing politicians do.

Would anybody like to bet me I can list more "arrested" anti government, right wing crazies threatening violence, than whatever obscure left wing loon you can list?

Florida http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26077318...s-decision_08/

California http://digg.com/news/world_news/Cali..._message_board

Mississippi http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ack-Obama.html

Texas http://www.myfoxdfw.com/dpp/news/072010-man-arrested-for-threatening-obama (broken link)

South Carolina http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/1..._n_788447.html

Nevada http://articles.cnn.com/2009-06-06/j...nt?_s=PM:CRIME

Too many to list....would anybody care just to list a State and I'll give you one?
