As retiring Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) slowly makes his way toward the left following in the steps of party turncoats like the late Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), who famously noted that he hadn’t left the Republican Party, the Republican Party left him, the congressman has recently embraced the victimhood culture.
In a Monday post that practically screams ‘give me attention,’ Kinzinger provided a compilation of audio clips said to be threatening voicemails directed to his office.
Offering no context as to when the calls may have been received, what percentage of calls to his office were threatening or whether any investigations had been opened or closed pertaining to the alleged threats, the representative instead tried to build the drama.
“Threats of violence over politics has increased heavily in the last few years. But the darkness has reached new lows,” he wrote before warning about the content.
Threats of violence over politics has increased heavily in the last few years. But the darkness has reached new lows. My new interns made this compilation of recent calls they’ve received while serving in my DC office.

Opening with a disclaimer that read, “You are about to hear real voicemails and phone calls directed to the Office of Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16). This video includes foul language and threats of violence. Viewer discretion is advised,” the video made certain to explain, “Keep in mind all voicemails and phone calls are received by my interns, high school or college level, attempting to learn about the legislative process.”
What followed was a series of audio clips spliced together where one voice transitions into another with some seeming to be repeated. Kinzinger’s actual motive for sharing the clips was not stated but it is apparently on the heels of an alleged threat to his life and the life of his wife and child that the lawmaker is seeking to further malign Republicans and supporters of former President Donald Trump as violent extremists to maintain interest in the Jan. 6 committee investigation.
Several of the messages did include direct threats of concern that, if credible, should be investigated by the authorities. “Hey you little c*cksucker. Going to come protest in front of your house this weekend. We know where your family is and we’re going to get you little c*cksucker. You c*cksucking little b*stard,” a voice was heard saying and then, “Gonna get your wife, gonna get your kids.”
“Gonna get you and [Rep.] Liz Cheney. Going to get you two little c*cksuckers,” someone said before an entirely different voice made reference to the officer who shot and killed unarmed Ashli Babbitt when she was inside the Capitol building on Jan. 6. “You son of a b*tch. You gave $200 to that black b*stard that killed Ashli Babbitt. I hope…somebody like him kills your nasty mom, and you’re nasty wife, it’s not a threat. It’s a hope.”
Other calls hoped sickness would befall the congressman, but did not suggest anyone should commit acts of violence against him. “I guess I can’t say a whole lot more other than I hope you naturally die as quickly as f*cking possible you f*cking piece of sh*t,” said one person and another expressed, “Wrath of the Lord God Almighty come upon you, your health, your family, your home, your livelihood, and I’ll pray if it be God’s will that you suffer.”
However, while profanity-laced, most of the audio was merely disparaging remarks about how poorly Kinzinger had represented his constituents who sent him to Congress for a reason, “You backstabbing sone of a b*tch. You go against Trump y’all know y’all motherf*ckers are sitting up there lying, like a damn dog.”
“You’re the biggest piece of sh*t politician in the world,” another declared. “Why don’t you just leave and go away and shut your f*cking mouth you piece of sh*t. F*ck you. You’re a horrible, horrible garbage f*cking person. F*ck you.”
“I’m so glad you’re leaving cause you’re a piece of sh*t and there’s my f*cking message for you. You’re a f*cking Democratic operative and a f*cking Obama d*ck suck. F*ck you,” a message detailed while another decried his progressive leanings. “F*ck you you lousy Marxist traitor. You [Rep. Nancy] Pelosi cuck. You and Liz Cheney can both got to hell. F*ck you you big baby. You rotten pile of dog sh*t.
Another hoped that Kinzinger would be punished for allegedly betraying America, “You’re gonna swing for f*cking treason you communist f*ck.”
The impression presented by one person was that the reported note and all of these calls were nothing but a scam to garner attention, “This threat that you got is nothing but a fraud. You did it.”
Supporting that notion, between Jan. 1 and March 23 of this year, the Capitol Police Threat Assessment Team said they had opened approximately 1,820 cases that included “direct threats and directions of interest” as reported by The Hill. Incidents have increased in recent years rising from 3,939 in 2017 to 5,206, 6,955, 8,613 and 9,625 in subsequent years thereafter. Yet, Kinzinger is one of few who have drawn attention to any form of harassment.
