It’s the Chicago Way.
From the New Hampshire Union Leader.
The New Hampshire businessman who appears in a Mitt Romney television ad accusing President Barack Obama of “demonizing” small business owners has gone to his local police after receiving two “harassing” telephone calls and, he says, hundreds of nasty emails.
“It’s frightening to me,” said Jack Gilchrist of Gilchrist Metal Fabricating of Hudson, who also said Thursday he received hundreds of supportive emails as well.
Gilchrist said that while “there was no specific threat, to me, it’s harassment.”
Capt. Bill Avery of the Hudson Police Department confirmed that an officer took “an investigative report of harassment” from Gilchrist on Wednesday.
“And,” said Avery, “we will investigate.”
……Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams said the Obama campaign’s “attacks” on Gilchrist and his business prompted the telephone calls and emails.
“This is the same kind of Chicago-style politics that the Obama political machine has repeatedly used to push the President’s liberal agenda and intimidate anybody who disagrees with his failed policies,” said Williams.
……“My father’s hands didn’t build this company?” Gilchrist asks in the television ad. “My hands didn’t build this company? Through hard work and a little bit of luck, we built this business. Why are you (Obama) demonizing us for it?”
……Gilchrist emailed what he said were the voice mails to UnionLeader.com on Thursday.
One called him a “vile piece of (expletive),” among other things, and demanded he call Obama to apologize.
The caller was identified by Gilchrist through his caller ID. The man called from area code 630, which is the Chicago area. He has posted anti-Republican and anti-conservative messages on Twitter in the past, including a 2009 posts that said, “GOP needs to be eliminated,” and, “I am prepared to kill people. Let the tea bagers (sic) fire the first shot and I will pile up the bodies of the traitors.”
The other caller, to Gilchrist’s associate, names Gilchrist and calls him “a (expletive) liar,” a “(expletive) Republican piece of (expletive),” and told him to “burn in hell.”
Wanna bet the Chicago caller is a union thug?
Joe (The Plumber) Wurzelbacher suffered the same orchestrated harrassment from Obama’s supporters.
Dissent under Obama’s regime won’t be tolerated.
