In another such post Matt Wynns who claims to be a small business owner states "I shall be heating my home with recall signature. as they sign, I'll make sure to tell them not to sign another petition. I figure I can get a hundred to a few hundred signatures off the ballot. F*#&* (Word edited) Liberals.
The list of disgusting posts go on, even after a user reminded each and every one of them that their plans would violate Wisconsin statutes. It makes me wonder if the media will pick up on these plans and make it public knowledge, just as they did with the Scott Walker death threat on facebook. I agree all threats are serious and have no place in the arena, but if I were to compare these posts to the suggestive post about Scott Walker, I would have to say these are more pointed, planned and with the intent of harming Democracy as well as those circulating petitions.
As you click the links below and read their posts, some even suggest using the castle doctrine as a way to dissuade people taking part in their democracy. In essence, these individuals are breaking the terms of service of Facebook by the use of intimidation and or bullying. Furthermore, these individuals have now publicly planned to commit a felony in the state of Wisconsin.
Politiscoop contacted the Democratic Party of Wisconsin for a statement in regards to these facebook posts. Graeme Zielinski the party spokesman had this to say.
Destroying petitions or engaging in the acts you describe are serious felonies. However, these threats are intended to sow confusion. We won't let them win, especially not like this. Petitions will be clearly marked and the circulators will be identified by a lanyard, but if anyone thinks they were tricked, they can come to one of our 30-plus recall offices and sign a petition, which we will make sure is scanned properly and sent to our collection site. But again, the behavior you describe would be highly illegal.
With the GOP and Tea Party activists going so far to reveal their plans on facebook, only shows that they have now dropped the gauntlet, the battle is now on. The grassroots groups in tandem with the Democratic Party of Wisconsin have set November 15th to begin recalling Scott Walker. If this story angers you, then contact your local democratic party recall office and ask how you can help, contribute and do your part in reclaiming the state. You can also visit their website here.
Here are the disgusting screen shots. Be warned some are very vile.
