Death Threats?

The Tea Party and NOM Want Republican NY Senators Who Voted for Gay Marriage Six Feet Under

What do you get when you combine right-wing talk radio and the Tea Party? Veiled death threats! A Tea Party web radio show has been oh-so-clever to come up with a recurring feature called the “Tombstone award,” presented to “an action, deed or words that deserves to be put six feet under the ground.” Well, that’s constructive criticism…

GOP New York state senators Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Steve Saland and Mark Grisanti better watch their backs. They are the lucky winners of the Tombstone award for “betraying how they campaigned to their constituents” and voting to legalize same-sex marriage in New York.

NOM picked up the award on its blog, and although the write-up clearly states the award is presented to specific actions not the individuals, if you listen to the radio show, the host makes no distinction and alludes directly to the senators in presenting the death-wish awards.
