Get ready for today’s Detroit news to launch a thousand progressive meltdowns. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes ruled he’ll consider cuts to city employees’ pensions in Detroit’s bankruptcy.

One prog thug on the #UniteBlue hashtag kicked off the civility parade with something that looked an awful lot like a death threat.

https://twitter.com/dominicnanni/status/407911788366135296

The threat was deleted, but as always, Twitchy is forever.

His excuse? It wasn’t a threat, you illiterate imbeciles!

Twitter verdict: obvious threat.

Ah, the inevitable attempt to walk back his threat:

Lest we be accused of omitting the “context,” here are the two tweets from Dominic Nanni that preceded the threat.

How’s that for “context”? Really changes things, huh?

Need more? Here’s what reportedly appeared on his Facebook page:

We’ll see if the authorities buy the whole “out of context” routine.

[Update]

Looks like someone’s awfully sorry he got caught:

His full post via Facebook:

Social Media Followers and Friends —

Earlier this morning, I made a remark about Judge Rhodes and his decision to allow public pensions to be cut as part of bankruptcy protection. This tweet caused an extremely adverse reaction from people across the aisle. While I remind myself every time I post something that shouldn’t be posted, I seemed to have forgotten the extreme importance of paying attention to what exactly I post. I apologize for this and it will not happen again.

Best regards,
dpn

[Update]

Nanni appears to have deleted his Twitter account after this post was published, but his threat lives on.

[Update]

Nanni appears to have restored his Twitter account.

  • JeromeD

    Damn tea party thugs.

    • ObamaFail

      Detroit is a liberal cesspool. Never heard any Tea Partiers making threats. Death threats are a liberal reaction.

      • JeromeD

        woooosh.

        • ObamaFail

          If you were sarcastic, than you need a /sarc to let people know. We get a lot of trolls here, and besides, it’s really hard to convey sarcasm in written text.

          • JeromeD

            Seems easy enough – looks like the only downvoter was you. 2 [edit: now 3][double-edit: now 4, etc.] others got it instantly. Perhaps it’s simply very difficult for *you* to understand sarcasm? : )

          • ObamaFail

            Oh, personal insult? Okay, I can play. You put “Tea Party thugs” with no indication that you were joking. The “upvotes” you got were guest accounts, meaning there’s no indication that they were Conservatives, probably liberal trolls who thought you were serious. So it seems like the only people “getting your joke” are people who thought you were serious and were agreeing with you.

          • Richo

            For the love of criminy, letting the two of you on the Internet unsupervised in the same comment section is about the same as leaving two hyperactive toddlers alone in a room with only scissors to play with.

          • JeromeD

            Only one of us is crying about the necessity of putting on the safety tips, Richo : )

          • ForTheRepublicOfDave

            You realize that YOU started the argument, right? Rather than saying “/sarc” or something similar, you went with “woooosh”. If you don’t want to get called out, don’t be disrespectful.

          • JeromeD

            Interesting concept of starting an argument. Also, wrong. It isn’t my fault Gary lacks in the contextual analysis department (as evidenced by the overwhelmingly correct interpretations everyone else had of my comment). It *is*, however, Gary’s fault that he took his misunderstanding and crafted a what he thought was a contradictory response.

            So, to sum up:
            “If you don’t want to be disrespected, don’t be laughably wrong.”

          • ForTheRepublicOfDave

            Not really? Some people are better at detecting sarcasm than others. I knew it was when I first read it, but not everyone will. Doesn’t change the fact that you were disrespectful.

          • JeromeD

            Nor the fact that he was wrong before that. Which brings me back to my previous point…

          • ForTheRepublicOfDave

            So, rather than explaining that it was sarcasm, the correct response was to insult him?

          • JeromeD

            I managed to do both admirably with but a single word. It’s fine to respond to hypersensitivity/trigger-happy folks or those with broken sarc detectors with mockery. If being mocked as hideously wrong is offensive, I suggest less of the “being wrong.” : )

          • ForTheRepublicOfDave

            Hate to burst your giant Ego-bubble, pal, but you did nothing of the sort. It’s not okay to respond to anyone with mockery, unless they bring it upon themselves by saying something completely foolish. Having a “broken sarc detector” isn’t grounds for mockery, but since you seem to think so, it tells a lot about the kind of “person” you are. I feel sorry for anyone that has to deal with you beyond a passing basis.

          • JeromeD

            First off, you couldn’t possibly burst my ego-bubble, so no need to feel sad.

            Secondly, a broken sarc detector – and acting upon it – is most certainly akin to placing a nice, juicy target upon your back.

            You need not feel sorry for my friends, as they are high-functioning individuals incapable of bringing such mockery upon themselves. : )

            The whole “I feel sorry for” shtick is all too often so much rationalizing of a complete inability to best someone. Mothers tell it to their children to justify inaction. Enjoy your inaction. : )

          • ForTheRepublicOfDave

            Did you say something? I can’t here you over the voices in your head telling you you’re not a total douche for acting that way. And you’re right, I don’t feel sorry for your friends…just like I don’t feel sorry for drug addicts. They know it’s bad for them, but for some reason, they’re convinced they need it.

          • JeromeD

            …You hear voices in *my* head?…

            This is getting weird, buddy. You should maybe see someone. The projection can’t be helping. : )

          • Suzyqpie

            Sometimes I think he only thing causing liberals to win elections is the infighting between conservatives.

          • JeromeD

            Gary, gary, gary…*shakes head.* The majority of upvotes are non-guest accounts. You’ve either ignored them intentionally, or you weren’t paying attention. You can scrutinize their post history, if you’d like. [I’m sick at home today and wouldn’t waste *that* much time, but go for it].

            It seems like your rationale is a bit off. Maybe you just wanted your argument to conform to your feelings…perhaps *you* are the liberal, here? : )

          • Joe W.

            I usually take a look at a poster’s profile if there is any question about a post being sarcastic or not. In this case, Jerome is clearly a conservative. Mistakes happen. Jeepers…Even I have made a mistake before. Imagine that.. LOL. Lighten up, my friend…you and Jerome should bury the hatchet and get back to the business of defeating progressive liberals… Peace..

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Yea but every one of his subsequent responses to someone that didn’t get it and everyone else also makes him a gigantic douche nozzle.

          • JeromeD

            You don’t know me, son, so let me explain this to you once: If I’m ever a “douche nozzle” to someone, they’d be awake. They’d be facing me. And they’d be armed.

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Yup, I dont know you and given what an ass you were being, I dont care to so listen here and say it with me boy,

            Dooooooooooosh nozzle.

            Or jerk.

            Or jackass.

            Take your pick.

          • JeromeD

            And “Malcolm Reynolds” gets his own wooosh.

            I wonder how long it will take you to figure out the significance of the structure of my original reply to you…and how much longer after *that* it will take before you pretend you figured it out all along. It was a softball, too! Maybe I should be captain…

            Sigh. Liou coe shway duh biao-tze huh hoe-tze duh ur-tze.

            <3

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            So now because I called you out on being a Obama approved asshole, I’m the one that didn’t understand your stupidity? *yawn* please. Have a good one.

          • Daryl Watson

            I up voted I am very conservative and had problem understanding his sarcasm

          • CHHR

            don’t worry, those of us employing only half a brain easily got the sarcasm in your remark… ^5

          • Loves Me Some Gray Guevara

            Gary – if you looked closely between each word, the /sarc symbol was firmly planted.

      • John

        Death threats from liberals aren’t a bug, they’re a feature.

    • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

      Haters ain’t they?

      • JeromeD

        It’s obviously a vast right-wing conspiracy ; P

        • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

          obviously.

    • Richbert88

      If a Tea Partier actually did that and actually carried it out…….the Judge could expect to then be taken to the nearest hospital for care, have his bills payed and the site of the confrontation and the surrounding block would be the cleanest part of Detroit when they were done.

    • Ed Sullivan

      Don’t worry JeromeD. I am fully humor capable and versed in sarcasm. Stinking Detroit home of all things tea party related.

    • Billie Slash

      Its that stench of liberty, I tell you…..!

    • OpenTheDoor

      JeromeD, one thing I have noticed here, many posters are not the wittiest.
      Interesting, ‘wooosh’, is now a pejorative.
      Who knew?

      • JeromeD

        The etymology is most fascinating, I concur. I find it deliciously artful. Why bother with a brutish word when a delicate one will do? The true beauty of the term is, of course, that the implications of wooosh are often themselves lost upon the wooshee. Language at its finest.

  • ObamaFail

    They shouldn’t be blaming the judge. They should be blaming the Democrat policies that bankrupted Detroit in the first pace.

    • Suzyqpie

      A part of Liberal Privilege is never taking responsibility for anything ever no matter what deny everything for as long as it takes for another excuse to emerge.

    • John Vermore

      Other rust belt cities shrank in terms of population, but diversified their economies and either rebounded or at least mitigated the negative effect of the change. Detroit ought to have adapted better then average, not worse. I agree that their inability to do so should be blamed on the party that controlled the city for decades.

  • Milos Gamelin III™

    I would think anybody going to Detroit runs a high risk of being run over or stabbed. That goes hand in glove with why the city is a cess pool.

    • grais

      And don’t think he won’t try That excuse, too.

    • JeromeD

      I declare you the winner of the comments section.

    • Orwellian_Dilemma

      I think that is particularly true given the fact that apparently there are “millions of public employees who have served this city without question”–in a city of 700,000.

      It sounds like the citizens there have a city job for each vote they cast.

      • rssllue

        All of these stats you guys are throwing around are probably being taken “out of context” at least that is the excuse that I am sure Dominic will use to refute them. I like how the left has somehow lost the ability somewhere along the line to actually apply the correct words to the correct behavior. I wonder where it “is” that they got that from.

    • floridavet

      Anthony Bourdain put it this way: “…This city is screwed. The only place I’ve ever been that looks anything like Detroit does now is Chernobyl…”

  • ObamaFail

    Hey guys, when that liberal professor said that all NRA members children should be murdered to teach them a lesson, I think you all just took it out of context!!! When those feminists yelled “I hope your wives and daughters are raped!” at the Texas Legislators who put a no later than 5 month restriction on abortions, I guess we took that out of context too!! /sarc

  • Lexikin

    Isn’t it funny how liberals scream and kick when THEIR money is up for grabs? Most of them don’t even deserve the “pensions” (aka: blackmail money) they have taken away from the companies, anyway.

    • ObamaFail

      They yell about “social justice” and “Fair share” when it’s other people’s money. Let it be their money and suddenly they think death should be brought upon anyone who wants their money.

  • Den-Cat

    Out of CONTEXT: ..yah, he meant beaten in a fun game of rock, paper, scissors ….still working on the run over part 😉

    • ObamaFail

      I think he meant “run over by a wave of happiness and friendship!!”

  • Cmate

    Hmmmm,,, I wonder if the Detroit branch of the FBI has a twitter account. *cough*

    @FBIDetroit *cough*

    • ObamaFail

      FBI Detroit is probably too busy investigating evil Conservatives to focus on real crimes. Like how the IRS let $4 billion worth of fraud happen because they were too busy focusing on attacking the Tea Party.

      • The Penguin, Don’t talk shit

        No sh*t. This guy isn’t a threat to the lefty agenda, therefor will be ignored by law enforcement. It’s not like he made a gun out of a poptart or something else equally heinous.

        Hes a Socialist by his own admission (ie;prog) of course it will happen again.

  • JeffWRidge

    Every time the lefties get caught making threats and wishing death on people they disagree with they invariably go to the “out of context” defense. I notice that he didn’t retract his original words, nor did he apologize for them. Deleting the post and stating that he should have paid closer attention to what he posts is not a retraction, or an apology. In all likelihood he meant every word; he just didn’t like the blowback he received.

    • ObamaFail

      Just more proof that liberals are cowards. They run their mouth and expect praise for their hate. Then they cower like children when called out. And you’re right, he didn’t apologize or anything, he just acts like everyone is “misunderstanding him.”

    • Dan13

      They never are able to supply the context as we’ll.

    • Jen Baca

      Hmmm, sounds eerily similar to another quote from a more prominent lefty that was “taken out of context”….”If you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance” & “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” Obama was CLEARLY trying to say something else with those 2 phrases (amongst a million others). These darn lefties that say things that they don’t actually mean…..

  • RufusChoate

    Some correction of his tweet is needed… Replace the word: “served” with “looted” and you can appreciate the context his very tolerant call for beating and running a Judge over speaks to. The law and context of pillage.

  • grais

    Dominic Nanni, expect a knock on the door.
    You’ll get a chance to explain to the authorities how it was just those “people across the aisle” who had “an extremely adverse reaction.” Tell them all about how those “people across the aisle” just have no sense of humor.
    “…it will not happen again.” pffffft You’re dumber than hair; of course it’ll happen again.

    My guess is being that he’s a Liberal that his comment will just be excused as a heat of the moment thing while if he was a Conservative the SWAT team would knocking on his door right… about… NOW.

  • Ryan Johnson

    So if I understand this, this means old retired folks won’t receive as much retirement money as they would’ve before the bankruptcy? Can’t they cut something else (like any of their help programs where people are gaming the system)?

    • LegalizeShemp

      Exactly, especially the retired fire and police chiefs who are collecting $250,000 per year after retiring at age 50 and get that for 35 years without working a single day. That garbage is about to go the way of the dodo bird.

      • Ryan Johnson

        For that many years, that is entirely too much money.

      • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Take heart Shemp, most cops are dead within 2-5 years of retirement, so they dont get it that long.

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      The ruling just said that union pensions are not exempt. They are going to be cutting everything to the bone before they are done.
      I have mixed feelings about this myself, being a pensioner. We live on a fixed income and as the costs of everything start to rise, we are feeling the pinch in a big way.

      Just for giggles, I compared pensions between my City and Detroit, for the same job description. Ours is pretty good and theirs are higher, so they can afford to cut a little. Usually in these type of proceedings dont affect the ones who have retired, but affect future pensioners. Usually the ones that get hurt in the process are the ones that are within a year or two of retirement and dont have a lot of time to readjust their retirement plans.

      The unions will lose ground/control and thats what they are afraid of and angry about.

      • Ryan Johnson

        Thanks, that explains it. It’s a shame though.

        • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Your welcome, the process isnt usually as draconian as they make it sound.

          Anytime folks make promises that they knew or reasonably should have known couldnt be kept and someone down the line suffers for it, it is a shame.

    • JR48

      Just an opinion, but it sounds to me that if a city is 18 BILLION in debt, whatever cuts that are made are probably going to not be small ones.

      • Ryan Johnson

        Yeah, it seems as though they don’t have much of a choice.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Nothing taken out of context in the shorter or longer version. The f*ck you was the cherry on top. This was not concern trolling it was a direct threat.
    Unions are accustomed to preferential treatment by liberal courts that make them untouchable. They are not.
    I suppose it never occurred to this idiot that the non-union folks that bought municipal bonds, etc to try and keep the city alive are screwed too.

    The only betrayal to the city of Detroit was by the unions who bled the city dry with unrealistic and unsustainable benefits/pension packages.

        was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

    I hope the threat has been reported to authorities , assuming they care enough to take it seriously. I don’t have a lot of faith left in any federal employee

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      By law a threat to a member of the judiciary is a high priority felony, it has the potential to impute the entire justice system. Theoretically, they don’t have a choice not to take it seriously.

    Hey, I’ve seen “Hardcore Pawn”. A death threat from Detroit doesn’t surprise me in the least. I actually couldn’t be less surprised.

    There are some effed up people in Detroit.

    Obviously he (like many Democrats) never learned from good old Mark Twain: “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.”

    • SineWaveII

      I agree completely but that was Abe Lincoln.

      • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

        Hrm, I’ve always seen that quote attributed to Twain. Well, if I’m wrong I’ll gladly correct myself.

        • SineWaveII

          I know, I see that all the time. It’s been attributed to Twain and Will Rogers too. In the end though none of them are the original author since it’s an interpretation of Proverbs 17:28.

    When a city is 18 billion dollars in debt, they will not survive if they don’t do something. Doesn’t look like there is a choice from here.

    And this guy is a reckless idiot with a big mouth. I’m sure he’s going to get a visit from some sort of law enforcement for threatening a judge.

    • docscience

      Twitter is the best thing to happen to liberals since Mao let a thousand flowers bloom.

      They speak the ugliness they REALLY think.

      The honesty is refreshing.

  • DutyFirst

    hmmm .. not a direct threat according to him, then hows about an incitement to commit …

    • uselogic19

      He’s a little guy and might get in some trouble if the authorities want to take the time. Yet Alec Baldwin advocated the murder of the speaker of the house AND his family on national TV and he gets rewarded. Liberalism (non-classic) is truly the handiwork of the devil.

  • Paratisi

    What are you people whining about? This is nothing compared to the real threats this Judge is now going to get from Obama’s NSA, FBI, IRS & Homeland Security! May God Bless & Protect Him! #Benghazi #NoRINOS #PJNET

    God Bless America!

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Moral of the story: don’t call for someone to be beaten and run over, especially if that person is a judge.

    Seems like kind of an obvious moral, doesn’t it?

    • SineWaveII

      Not to a lefty. Nothing is ever obvious to them.

  • MarcusFenix

    Dominic, for some reason, believes the decision levied by the judge is a “disgrace”.

    He failed to mention, or likely even grasp, that Detroit being 18 Billion dollars in debt, and having been run into the ground by decade after decade of liberal policies…was actually the disgrace and the judge was having to rule on items pertaining to it.

    I have a question. Where exactly is this magic money supposed to come from? A tree?

  • Fairfax51

    Some Dems just can’t seem to comprehend….there IS NO MORE MONEY!!!!! You can threaten, you can even kill somebody, but all the MONEY WILL STILL BE GONE!!!!!

        I heard Winston Churchill said that before Margaret Thatcher. Number ten respect for both regardless.

  • meredithk

    Plus, why would a city with just a few hundred thousand people need “millions” of public employees over the years?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      He’s probably talking about the Millions who have been ensconsed (sic) in the Detroit Public Trough since the Dems took over, including no-show jobs, payoffs to Mobster Union bosses, etc. Jawamax 8<{D}

  • RememberSekhmet

    He mad, bro.

  • jeanie6

    If it looks, acts and sounds like a threat, it’s probably a threat. Is the threatener part of the Detroit pension system?

  • $1014973

    I thought everyone who goes to Detroit expects to be beaten up or run over?

    • John Galt

      You have a point…

  • right_on

    Ooh, making death threats on social media..normally, one would expect THAT kind of courage from a gathering of multiple union thugs at some asinine protest. Once again a thug wannabe wrote a check his a$$ couldn’t cash. Typical.

    Social media requires one to breath & count to 10 before reacting just like in real life. Not sure if this restraint is just not instilled by parents in this PC, time-out, everybody gets a trophy society or if it is just the fact social media turns young minds to mush.

    • Diane Stephan

      I agree. So tired of having to see people post every thought they have.
      Sometimes it’s best to keep it to yourself.

  • Taxpayer1234

    Note the little twerp’s verbage: “The tweet caused an extremely adverse reaction from people across the aisle.” Translation: I didn’t do anything wrong! The tweet did it!

    That sentence reveals that he is NOT taking responsibility for his action. How very typical.

    Replace the cop with some dude with a “Don’t Tread On Me” shirt on and the government pointing at him…. yea. Liberals are stupid.

    Judging by the man’s picture he really dosn’t look very bright….which explains why he’s a leftist ….

    I misspoke, it was a joke, it was taken out of context. Isn’t that this administrations go-to statement? He’s only following his masters lead.

  • putthehammerdown

    I live in S/E Michigan and can say with some authority that pogues like this twit are endemic around Wayne State, and any other college, come to think of it.. Big talk and no action at all is the rule.
    BTW, did anyone here link his Twitter acct. and see what his major is ? ….
    ……Political Communications. [if I read the abbreviations correctly]
    Looks like remedial education [in massive amounts] is required here……
    …or a swirlie in a urninated-in dirty toilet.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    I’m sure there are enough Trial Lawyers, Legal Aid advocates, and Liberal Judges in the Michigan State Courts system to Molly-coddle Mr. Nanni’s charges down to the punishment of a slap on the wrist…And in the Metro Detroit/Wayne County area, I’ll bet Odd money against even that there are enough Liberal (leaning) judges that will make sure the Punishment is as minimal as possible… Jawamax 8<{D}
