Violence over the health care bill

According to the Associated Press,

The FBI is investigating threats against lawmakers stemming from intense opposition to the health care overhaul law.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer says more than 10 Democratic lawmakers have reported incidents. Hoyer adds that the FBI andCapitol Police briefed Democrats on how to handle perceived security threats.

Regardless of whether these threats and attacks come from Democrats using Saul Alinsky tactics designed to discredit Republicans, or whether they come from some lunatic fringe Republicans, I hope the FBI is able to put a stop to it. If it comes from the former, the mask needs to be ripped off to expose them for what they are. If it comes from the latter, these idiots are damaging the very cause they think they are supporting.
