Another example of how classy the rightwing is:
HARRISBURG -- A sign waved at a gun supporters' rally Tuesday outraged lawmakers who interpreted it as suggesting the lynching of a Philadelphia legislator and said they would report the incident to police as a death threat.
Two men stunned onlookers by raising the banner criticizing Democratic Rep. Angel Cruz, sponsor of a bill that would create a registry of gun owners and require people to pay a yearly $10 fee for each gun or face state police confiscation of their weapons. Cruz should be "hung from the tree of liberty for treasonous acts against the Constitution," the sign read.
Angry lawmakers criticized the sign brought by Alan Kiser, of Warren County, as degrading and prejudicial. At an afternoon news conference, members of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus said they would report the incident to state police and Capitol Police because they considered it a death threat against Cruz, a Hispanic who is a member of the caucus.
Kiser said his sign was meant to suggest that Cruz -- and any lawmaker supporting House Bill 760 -- should be impeached.
Kiser's sign was an innocent protest in the same way this is:
Peace loving people, they are.
