Stop me if this sounds familiar: Yesterday, every public school in Broward County — all 300+ of them — were locked down for most of the day after a “credible threat” was apparently made against them by someone who called in to a local radio show. Turns out that radio show belonged to Joyce Kaufman — a conservative talk show host who, last July 4th, took to the airwaves to say that “if ballots don’t work, bullets will,” and who recently ranted that America is in danger of “losing our culture” to illegal immigrants.
The latest is that the police have the suspect in custody who reportedly made the threat — according to his wife, his claim was that he was going to shoot up a school or a government building — and that he’s being anything but cooperative.
And now… the rest of the story.
Joyce Kaufman was about to move to Washington, DC to serve as the chief of staff for incoming Florida Tea Party congressman Allen West.
Good people. Peaceful. Nonviolent.
