Tea Party Coloring Book Publisher Fields Death Threats

According to Fox News, the publisher behind The Tea Party Coloring Book for Kids! has received death threats.

Really Big Coloring Books president Wayne Bell said he had sold thousands of copies of the coloring book, but stressed that his company also publishes books about less conservative topics, like The Rockettes and President Barack Obama. The article quotes a few threats, but does not quote the actual death threats.

Here’s more from the article: “Bell said he has received messages containing ‘horrible, nasty, vitriolic stuff,’ including a desire for someone to place him in a “chloroform headlock” since its publication. ‘It was like a crescendo,’ Bell said of the messages. ‘We’ve locked our front door and put a sign on the door that says, ‘please knock.””
