[UPDATE: Cantor did not appear on the call, with Rev. Rick Scarborough telling participants he was busy with "a vote on the floor."]

Three hours after airing his “deep concerns that some, DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen and DNC Chairman Tim Kaine in particular, are dangerously fanning the flames” of violence against Congress, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) will be the special guest on a conference call held by the “S.T.O.P. Obama Tyranny National Coalition,” a project of one of the numerous conservative groups to get off the ground since last year. The logo, from the press release:

Over the course of the year, words like “tyranny” and “totalitarian” have lost some of their punch from overuse on the right. Cantor, according to the release, “will discuss what to do now that the healthcare bill has passed.”
