McCaskill Ups Security After Dumb Tea Partier Says ‘We Have To Kill Claire Bear’
9:30 am, May 10th | by Laura Donovan
It’s common knowledge that threatening political figures is just about one of the stupidest things a person can do, yet at least two right-leaning men have pulled this idiotic no-no in recent weeks. Outburst loving Ted Nugent had to meet with the Secret Service after he said he would either be dead or in jail if President Barack Obama were to be reelected in November, and Senator Claire McCaskill has had to up her security following a death threat from a Tea Party Express speaker.
Missouri Tea Partier, Scott Boston said of the Democrat at last week’s rally, “We have to get Claire McCaskill out. We have to kill the Claire bear, ladies and gentlemen. She walks around like she’s some sort of Rainbow Brite Care Bear or something, but really she’s an evil monster.”
What’s even more disturbing is that the remark was applauded by audience members, including McCaskill challenger Sarah Steelman’s son. Though it’s unlikely that Boston is actually going to try to hurt McCaskill, who now has more police patrols around her home and extra guards during public appearances, he should know by now that even joking about taking the life of someone in office is taken seriously by the public. Haven’t you learned anything from fellow conservative Ted Nugent’s mistakes?!
