With the media campaign of Bill Donohue (Catholic League) dominating the media, several people have now taken it upon themselves to push the attacks on Democrats to new and disturbing levels--turning an obnoxious smear campaign into an hitherto unimaginable level of violent, criminal threats on the life of female campaign staffer. 

In emails sent to the personal website of Amanda Marcotte, vocal critics of Democrats have now issued threats calling for her to be sodomized, raped and murdered.

This is the America we live in, ladies and gentleman.

This is not made up.

Bill Donohue waged a cynical campaign to destroy the Presidential hopes of a Democratic candidate, and apparently inspired by his media campaign to act on their own, several American citizens have now decided to destroy the life of a young woman.

The following emails were sent to Pandagon.net from Donohue supporters and addressed to Amanda Marcotte, the main focus of Bill Donohue's attacks:

"Problem with women like you, you just need a good fucking from a real man! Living in Texas myself, I know you haven’t found that real Texan yet. But once your liberal pro feminist ass gets a real good fucking, you might see the light. Until then, enjoy your battery operated toys b/c most real men wouldn’t want to give you the fucking you deserve b/c the shit that would come out of you ears.

(Andy Driggers, Dallas, TX)

"i like the way you trash talk i don’t particularly want to have sex with you but i would like a blow job."

(Paul Bernard, Scottsdale, AZ)

"It’s just too bad your mother didn’t abort you. You are nothing more than a filthy mouth slut. I bet a couple of years in Iraq being raped and beaten daily would help you appreciate America a little. Need a plane ticket ?"

(Bud Phelps, address unknown)

"YOU RACIST WHORE. FAT UGLY BITCH. SUCK MY LONG COCK ASSHOLE I HOPE YOU KIDS NEVER LIVE AND YOUR PARENTS DIE A TRAGIC DEATH YOU ASSHOLE BITCH!  I HOPE YOUR WOMB IS BARREN AND YOUR CAREER PLUMMETS TO HELL YOU BITCH"

(Romanco De Leone, address unkown)

The authoritarian right in America, it seems, has achieved its objective: to use violent rhetoric to silence political debate and the very system of free and fair elections we enjoy in this country. 

Donohue's cynical attack on Edwards was not only baseless in this respect, but also strategically deployed.  His goal was not to inform the public, but to charge the debate with rhetoric of confrontation and threats--the better to turn his lone voice into a political force capable of defeating a political campaign.  And it almost worked.

But Americans will not be silenced or intimidated.

Nor will we allow our political system to be overrun by people who, upon hearing Donohue's media smear campaigns, take it upon themselves to issue threats of sodomy, rape and murder to enforce their political views. 

America is not some lawless frontier town where the boss with the biggest gun and the meanest wranglers rules the roost. 

But in contemporary America, when men like Bill Donohue have strong ties to major media outlets, a $300,000 per year salary, and the tacit approval of the entire Republican Party--he becomes a powerful person capable of running roughshod on the American electorate. 

This has to stop and it has to stop right now.

Effective immediately, Frameshop is calling for the following actions to be taken against Bill Donohue and his devotees:

  1. All Democratic  and Republican Party leaders should jointly condemn the threats and calls to sodomize, rape and murder of Amanda Marcotte.
  2. The IRS should immediately investigate the non-profit status of Bill Donohue's Catholic League under the suspicion that his organization has violated its 501(c)(3) status.
  3. The Attorney General of the City of the New York should immediately inquire as to any possible connection between Bill Donohue's and the people who threatened to sodomize, rape and murder Amanda Marcotte. 
  4. The FBI should track down the men who issued the threats to sodomize, rape and murder Amanda Marcotte.

This is a start.  But the alternative is to allow these campaigns to continue threatening Americans and destroying our civic arena.
