It wasn’t bad enough that leftists got together with their corporate puppetmasters and donated millions of dollars to whichever fictional challenger Susan Collins will face in her next re-election campaign. It wasn’t enough that thousands of graduates of her alma mater wrote a letter demanding that St. Lawrence University strip the Maine senator of her honorary degree. No, these crazies are so upset that Collins voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh that they actually sent her a terroristic threat (at best) or tried to kill her (at worst).
The delineation comes when we find out whether or not the anonymous crazyleftist in question actually mailed ricin to the Republican senator…or whether they just wanted her to think they did.
In an interview with a local Maine CBS affiliate, Collins’ husband Thomas Daffron said he was outraged over the letter.
“There’s absolutely no reason to have this level of vitriol over a single vote,” said Daffron. “About 1 o’clock, I went and picked up the mail like I do most days. I walked back in the kitchen, separated Susan’s out and threw the rest of the junk mail away, and I open this one letter which was addressed to me, and I thought it was some kind of a solicitation or something, and I started reading it, and it was fairly antagonistic toward Susan and got halfway down and I saw the word ricin, that there was ricin residue on this letter. So I took it out. I put it in a plastic bag and called the police.”
Collins also spoke to the CBS affiliate, describing how her husband contacted her about the threat.
“Tom sent me pictures and I saw all these people in Hazmat suits coming in and out of the house,” she said. “He was wearing one. And I learned that he, our dog, and parts of our house, including the kitchen, were quarantined. And obviously it was of considerable concern to me.”
“I think that we’ve been sort of surprised by the very strong feelings on both sides,” Daffron said. “We have to…this is our home. We want to live here, we want to live our life like everybody else. And you know if we have to worry about every car that goes down the street, then it becomes a very difficult situation.”
The FBI has not released any additional information about the threat, whether or not there was actually ricin residue on the letter, or how their investigation is coming along.
One thing is certain: If you’re morally outraged about Kavanaugh being confirmed to the Supreme Court and NOT outraged about people threatening the life of Susan Collins, your moral compass is extremely out of whack.
