Death Threat Tweeting Liberal Harasses Businessman Who Appeared in Romney Video

From the Union Leader:

MANCHESTER — The New Hampshire businessman who appears in a Mitt Romney television ad accusing President Barack Obama of “demonizing” small business owners has gone to his local police after receiving two “harassing” telephone calls and, he says, hundreds of nasty emails.

Gilchrist said that while “there was no specific threat, to me, it’s harassment.”

Capt. Bill Avery of the Hudson Police Department confirmed that an officer took “an investigative report of harassment” from Gilchrist on Wednesday.

“And,” said Avery, “we will investigate.”

More “New Tone” politics from those filthy liberals. I can see why they’d want to intimidate Gilchrist – the video he appeared in was very effective:

So who are these people? Is this a coordinated attack? There are a few clues in the story:

Gilchrist emailed what he said were the voice mails to UnionLeader.com on Thursday.

One called him a “vile piece of (expletive),” among other things, and demanded he call Obama to apologize.

The caller was identified by Gilchrist through his caller ID. The man called from area code 630, which is the Chicago area. He has posted anti-Republican and anti-conservative messages on Twitter in the past, including a 2009 posts that said, “GOP needs to be eliminated,” and, “I am prepared to kill people. Let the tea bagers fire the first shot and I will pile up the bodies of the traitors.”

The other caller, to Gilchrist’s associate, names Gilchrist and calls him “a (expletive) liar,” a “(expletive) Republican piece of (expletive),” and told him to “burn in hell.”

Gilchrist said that between the emails and the calls, “I have to believe that this is an orchestrated effort. There are quite a few coincidences.”

There is a twitter account that precisely matches those messages:

Steve sure isn’t shy, but he also tweeted out a bunch of execrable messages and then stopped using twitter. Here are some other choice tweets:

More death threats against the Tea Party!

Not too keen on history:

And advocating terrorism against oil companies:

Real classy huh? I wonder if the media who decries the “extremism” and “atmosphere of hate” of the Tea Party will cover this? Actually, no I don’t.

But you should. Make sure as many people know about this as possible.

However – I strongly urge you not to follow in his example. Don’t contact this guy at all. The cops are investigating, let it run it’s course, and don’t become as lowlife as he is. We’re better than that.
