Roger Williams, a freshman congressman representing the 25th district of Texas, recently experienced the vitriol and hate with which today’s radical leftists operate. The Tea Party-backed Republican reported the door to his district office in Cleburne was plastered with various messages and photographs — including a collection of tea bags believed to have originated with MoveOn.org activists.
Tea bags, through a tacit reference to a crass sexual act, have often been used in recent years to smear the Tea Party movement. The vandals who struck Williams’ office used handwritten notes to further drive home their vindictive message.
While some signs called for the congressman’s recall or revealed a strong desire to see him voted out of office, others took the rhetoric to a more personal level.
Among other epithets, the saboteurs called Williams an “anti-American racist” and a “Douchebag Republican.”
Williams issued a statement in response to the vandalism, saying that he knows “tensions are high” during the shutdown, though he excoriated those responsible, saying, “this type of behavior cannot and will not be tolerated.”
He said he is available to speak with his constituents about the issues at hand, though he affirmed there is “no room for shameful displays like this.”
Along with a fellow Texan, Sen. Ted Cruz, and other conservative legislators, Williams has been a vocal opponent of ObamaCare by joining the recent movement to de-fund the unpopular law. As more and more former supporters begin to realize the disastrous effects associated with socialized healthcare, even some of these hoodlums might reluctantly realize Williams is not the enemy after all.
