In an affidavit released today, total loon Norman LeBoon has been arrested for making death threats to Congressman Eric Cantor and his family. LeBoon made the threats via a video uploaded to YouTube.
Talking Points Memo: PHILADELPHIA - Today, 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, announced United States Attorney Michael L. Levy and FBI Special Agent in Charge Jan Fedarcyk. As set forth in the affidavit to the complaint and warrant, 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. [copy of affidavit here]
LeBoon a 33-year-old man from Philadelphia, PA has fancies himself as some sort of messiah and has made death threats before. In the video below (h/t Michelle Malkin) we see LeBoon making threats to the folks at YouTube for taking down one of his videos.
You can view more of LeBoon nutty videos at his YouTube channel. As you can see from the video LeBoon apparently considers himself a Muslim. Will the media mention this fact the way they make note about the Christian Militia group Hutaree? Somehow I doubt it especially when it has been discoved that LeBoon gave two dontations to the Obama campaign back in 2008. Jamie Wearing Fool has the full story on the donations. The DNC said it would give any LeBoon donations it finds to charity.
LeBoon is the perfect reason why the media is play such a dangerous game hyping these stories about threats towards the Democrats. There are really crazy people out there both on the left and the right who cannot separate the politics. It is these nutcases that will act on all these stories coming out. Clearly the media’s attempt to smear the Tea Parties is not having the desired effect. Instead it seems to be stirring up the crazy farm.
