Muslim Obama Supporter Arrested For Threatening Rep. Eric Cantor

March 30, 2010 - IF A MEMBER OF CONGRESS RECEIVED A DEATH THREAT, a real death threat, and somebody was actually arrested for it, wouldn't you expect to see that story at the top of the nightly newscasts, or on the front page of every daily newspaper in the country? On Saturday, Norman Leboon was arrested for making such threats. Leboon is a self-desribed Muslim who supported Comrade Barack Obama in 2008. He calls himself "The Nemesis of America; This Shia Muslim Norman LeBoon Sr." Why is the MSM not reporting that?  Here's a video of Leboon explaining how he became a Shia Muslim in 1998:

A March 29 statement by the FBI said that "a two-count complaint and warrant was filed charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family, and threatening to kill Congressman Eric Cantor, who is an official of the United States." (Hear the outrage from liberals? Me neither.) The FBI statement also said that "in or about late March, 2010, Leboon created and then transmitted a YouTube video to Google over the Internet, in which he threatened to kill Congressman Cantor and his family. No harm came to the Congressman or his family as a result of Leboon’s threats."

In that FBI statement, United States Attorney Michael L. Levy said, “The Department of Justice takes threats against government officials seriously, especially threats to kill or injure others. Whether the reason for the threat is personal or political, threats are not protected by the First Amendment and are crimes.”

Leboon's videos were posted on YouTube. His channel, "shiamuslimcantbestop." That account has been suspended and his videos were removed. However, you can still view some of his videos (as of 3:30 PM CDT, 3/30/10) at metacafe.com

Suppose Eric Cantor was a Black Democrat. Would we then be hearing screams of horror about the death threats against him? Of course we would. The Left would go into finger pointing spasms about the violent tendencies of The Right. But Cantor is (a) Jewish, (b) White, and (c) Republican. To the Left, that disqualifies Cantor for any of their sympathy. The liberals mocked the Republican claims of threats. Nevermind that there have been no arrests connected with any of the Democrat "threats," nevermind that the fact that Cantor is Jewish might also make Leboon's threat a "hate crime."

Of course, the MSM does not want to acknowledge that the only substantiated death threat against a member of Congress is not a right-winger. "After devoting several stories to unsubstantiated allegations of racism and spitting by Tea Party protesters last weekend," wrote Clay Waters at Media Research Center, "the New York Times almost ignored an actual death threat made against a top Republican, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, the No. 2 Republican in the House, that resulted in the first actual arrest since the alleged wave of threats against politicians began."

The liberals are still whining, however, about imagined, fabricated and false accusations of Tea Partiers shouting "n----r!" and spitting on Democrat members of Congress as they climbed the steps to the Capitol two Sundays ago to cast their votes in favor of nationalizing health care and throwing the nation into the septic tank of socialism.

It would almost be pointless to call attention to the fact that Leboon is a left-wing radical who claims to be a Muslim. It doesn't matter, really. There are kooks on both sides of the political spectrum, but no individual kook or small group of nutjobs should be held up as typical of entire political parties.  It must be said, however, that regardless of what Leboon's real political are (and I'm sure even he knows; he threatened Obama in 2009), the Left - liberals and Democrats - have been extremely hypocritical about accusing the Tea Party movement and conservatives in general of being violent or of inciting violence, particularly in light of the thousands of incidents over the past 10 years of Leftists hold up signs that said such things as "Kill Bush." Liberals and Democrats need to open their eyes to the wackos within their own ranks. Yes, there are wackos in the Right, too, but not to the extent of the Left.
