The Arizona Republic broke with tradition and endorsed a Democrat, and is getting death threats.

For the first time in 126 years, The Arizona Republic endorsed a Democrat for president,Hillary Clinton. Almost immediately afterwards, the death threats started rolling in.

So reports local NBC affiliate KPNX. “Well, it’s been crazy around here,” said Phil Boas, director of the editorial page. He says the Republic has seen massive subscription cancellations, angry phone calls, and yes, death threats.

    Hmm…Campaign strategy from Putin…

  • oldfart

    Death threats seem to be quite popular in Arizona…
    even the governor got them for p*ssing off the gun nuts..

  • mistlesuede

    Why does this story not surprise me?

    Can someone fix the “Clingon” in the title for the thread?

    • mea_mark

      Really, it should be spelled with a ‘K’ not a ‘C’. Oh wait, ok, got it fixed.

      • mistlesuede

        Not being a trekkie, I would have most likely spelled it wrong.

        • Mister Atoz

          “Not being a trekkie…

          Oh, but you’re much (not) more than that. I have a feeling that you’re the only person on Earth (and beyond) who didn’t know who Dr. McCoy was. ;-)

            No fair jibing at the uninitiated. Go back to your library; I think I heard a sexy cavegirl yelling in the “Romantic Fiction” section…
            :P

            • Mister Atoz

              To my credit, I restrained myself for a couple of days.

          • mistlesuede

            Or Mr. Atoz.

            • Mister Atoz

              I’m only a minor character, though.

              • mistlesuede

                Not in my book. ;)

                • Mister Atoz

                  (((Blushing))) Thanks!

                  I hope my comment didn’t come across as mean. It was only meant to be snarky.

                  • mistlesuede

                    It did a little, but I chose to not take it that way.

                    • Mister Atoz

                      Sorry about that. My apologies.

                    • mistlesuede

                      No problem. Send me a hug and we are all good. ;)

                    • Mister Atoz

                      (((HUGS))) You deserved more than one.

                    • mistlesuede

                      The more, the better. ;)

      Maybe it was the Federation that sent the death threats.

  • Larry Schmitt

    How do you send a death threat to a newspaper?

    • fredoandme

      in the usual manner.

      • Larry Schmitt

        Do you wrap it in fish?

        • fredoandme

          i imagine that pixels are involved, though i thoroughly enjoy the idea of fish wrap.

          sigh. it really isn’t funny, is it? anymore?

    • The Original Just Me

      You use the paper to line the bottom of the bird cage. :+)

      • fredoandme

        i do. trump is always face up. with his mouth open

        for some reason.

        • The Original Just Me

          Too bad you can’t get a naked picture of the other end turned up.

          • fredoandme

            gracious me! i DON’T want to hurt my birds!!!

            for me, and i think i know what fredo and the other dear little birds would say on the issue, it’s significantly more satisfying to lay out a collage of strategically positioned, open mouthed donalds and sit back and let the crap fall where it may!!

            and there’s nuuuuuuuuuuuuthin’ he can do about it.

        • Larry Schmitt

          That’s because his mouth is never closed.

        • bpollen

          I had a neurotic parrot. I think that woulda drove him over the edge.

          • fredoandme

            i thought all parrots are neurotic. perhaps it would help him focus.

            can’t hurt to try.

            • bpollen

              He was closer to Michelle Bachmann neurotic.

              Unfortunately, he and 3 other birds were lost in a house fire. They were gone before I knew there was a fire. Hell, I barely made it out and I wasn’t even in a cage.

              • fredoandme

                oh, my. that’s dreadful. poor little fellows. fire!

                very sad.

                thank goodness you were lucky, though! you’d be missed round here.

                • bpollen

                  My friends also miss me… when I duck!

                  Thanks for the kind words.

      I have a feeling these people are not he sharpest tools.

        a bunch of spoons hiding in the knife drawer

        • Suzanne McFly

          Good one lol.

        • bpollen

          Sporks.

    • bpollen

      Carrier pigeon?

  • The Original Just Me

    It is very Easy to determine the Winner of the Debate. Trump’s Whole Campaign Focus has gone ” OFF THE RAILS”. The Level of PERSONAL ATTACKS is Skyrocketing and the Level of Intelligent Comments is PLUMMETING. The Lying Level is in HIGH GEAR. This IS the DEATH THROWS of Not Only Trump but The Entire Republican Party. Give US,; ” WE THE PEOPLE “, something Solid to think about. A Plan, A Direction, Even An Intelligent Thought to contemplate. Enough of the Squealing and Squawking like an Old Hen.

  • Suzanne McFly

    Well in an indirect way, this is Karma working. They supported the bigotry and whistles the republican party has been blowing for decades so they helped create this message.

  • oldfart

    No need to say sorry, it’s a fact and it’s the truth.
