Earlier this week, a man named Norman Leboon was arrested for posting a video threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor and it was soon revealed that Leboon had made some 2,000 videos that contained pseudo-religious incantations with random warnings and threats, including videos that targeted President Obama, Vice President Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as well as threats against judges, David Duke, and even against the movie “Babe.“
So it seems pretty clear to everyone that Leboon’s myriad of threats were most likely driven by some sort of mental illness … everyone, that is, except the Family Research Council which claims that Leboon’s threat against Cantor is part of a “clear pattern of intimidation that comes from many homosexual activists”:
House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and his family were the targets of a death threat for which a Philadelphia man was arrested on Monday. While the media reported the threat against Rep. Cantor, they didn’t point out that the suspect, Norman Leboon, claimed on his YouTube website that he is the “Messiah” of “gays and lesbians” and asks his homosexual “children” to leave the armed forces so that he might “smite” those remaining. This was not an insignificant omission. There is a clear pattern of intimidation that comes from many homosexual activists.
In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the issue next month in a case that springs from the Washington State ballot measure to protect marriage. As they have in Massachusetts, California and elsewhere, homosexual activists in Washington State resorted to civic terrorism to intimidate those who signed the ballot measure. The question in this case is whether or not those who sign can do so without their names being publicly released. The evidence is mounting that those who are trumpeting the call for tolerance, have little tolerance for those they disagree with.
