The Death Threat Against Eric Cantor That the Left is Ignoring, Who is Norman Leboon? Updated: Norman LeBoon, Obama Donor? Shia Muslim?

by the Left Coast Rebel

How did I miss this? Why isn't this a leading thread at Memeorandum? Wouldn't this be huge news if it had been directed towards Nancy Pelosi, Obama, Frank, any leftist politician?

This being a death threat made against Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA). Hadn't heard about it? Neither had I. The U.S. Attorney in Philadelphia released a statement today and affidavit as well:

PRESS RELEASE

PHILADELPHIA - Today, a two-count complaint and warrant was filed charging Norman Leboon with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family, and threatening to kill Congressman Eric Cantor, who is an official of the United States, announced United States Attorney Michael L. Levy and FBI Special Agent in Charge Jan Fedarcyk. As set forth in the affidavit to the complaint and warrant, in or about late March, 2010, Leboon created and then transmitted a YouTube video to Google over the internet, in which he threatened to kill Congressman Cantor and his family. No harm came to the Congressman or his family as a result of Leboon's threats.

"The Department of Justice takes threats against government officials seriously, especially threats to kill or injure others," said Levy. "Whether the reason for the threat is personal or political, threats are not protected by the First Amendment and are crimes."

INFORMATION REGARDING THE DEFENDANT

NAME ADDRESS AGE
Norman Leboon Philadelphia, PA 33 years old

If convicted of all the charges, the defendant faces a maximum possible sentence of 15 years imprisonment, 3 years supervised release, a fine up to $500,000, and a $200 special assessment.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Philadelphia Police Department, and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert K. Reed.

"You receive my bullets..." The money shot from the affidavit, referencing the video that LeBoon threatened Cantor in:

"Remember Eric ... our judgment time, the final Yom Kippur has been given. You are a liar, you're a Lucifer, you're a pig, a greedy [expletive] pig. You're an abomination. You receive my bullets in your office. Remember they will be placed in your heads. You and your children are Lucifer's abominations."


Scroll down to the bottom of the TPM article on this for the affidavit as well. Main stream press - why are you ignoring the violence against Republican politicians? I'd like to know more about this Norman Leboon guy too. Did the leftist press motivate him to do this?

UPDATED: Our first glimpse of Norman LeBoon via Legal Insurrection. Professor Jacobson points out that Norman LeBoon was an ant-zionist loon:

And another, this guy, Norman LeBoon is an out and out wacko and proud of his anti-semitism:

UPDATED x2: Citizen journalism reigns! Jammie Wearing Fool (also, link here), found that Norman LeBoon gave money to Obama:

According to the HuffPost data base, a Norman LeBoon of 1653 Benner St. in Philadelphia gave $815 to Obama in the third quarter of 2008. From the affadavit at Michelle Malkin's link:
Subsequently, the IP address 74.109.58.150 was subsequently provided to Verizon Internet Services. Upon being served with an “Emergency Situation Disclosure Request By Law Enforcement” form, Verizon provided the subscriber information for the user assigned IP address 74.109.58.150 between March 24, 2010, 4:48 p.m. PT, and March 26, 2010, 04:58 a.m. PT. According to Verizon’s records, the subscriber to the IP address, at the specified time was: John Hopkins, 1653 Benner Street, Philadelphia, PA 19149.

And here's another video. Jammie thinks that Norman LeBoon should have put the crack pipe down years ago and I agree and Norman LeBoon rails against Youtube here:


UPDATED x3: Norman LeBoon, Shia Muslim? You have got to be kidding me. From the video at MetaCafe - I'm very dangerous because of who I am, as a Shia Muslim....:

leboon shia

Check out this video too. Of course the press won't carry this although they called the militia members arrested yesterday, 'Christians' over and over and over and over.....

UPDATED x4: Cantor's office released a statement on the death threat from Norman LeBoon:

ASHINGTON, D.C. - Statement From the Office of Republican Whip Eric Cantor

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of the Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement regarding a security incident that occurred this weekend:

Statement by Press Secretary Brad Dayspring:

"Over the weekend, Congressman Cantor was notified by law enforcement that a threat was made against his life. Law enforcement officials informed Congressman Cantor that the threat was determined as credible and they were responding accordingly. The Congressman was later notified that an arrest was made and a suspect was in custody. "At this time, the Congressman will have no further comment on this threat or the investigation, and asks that inquiries be directed to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

UPDATED x5: Norman LeBoon left his tracks everywhere. I found this comment on a very strange blog entry from July, 2009, apparently he became disenfranchised over Obama:

Mon, 07/06/2009 - 21:57 — Prophet Mehdi

The same thing happen to President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Love, Prophet Mehdi 12 Imam named by God and ONLY by God! Used to be Norman LeBoon Sr.

  1. Two reasons, he is conservative and Jewish.

    The lives of either description are meaningless to the MSM or Obama.
