The Inquisitr rounds up material on a topic we've mentioned previously, a spate of Twitter and Facebook posts by Sen. Jason Rapert spreading the anti-Muslim words and deeds of a British man who goes by the pseudonym Tommy Robinson.

I'd mentioned Rapert's touting of these stories on Twitter. Rapert objected to my word choice:

You persist in being careless. You played fast and loose with the truth. Reposting stories is not "touting" or promoting - it is simply sharing.

So now the national support group for all things Islamic has put a target on me as a result of YOUR messaging. I hold you personally responsible if ANY threats come against me and my family as a result of this. You are truly careless and malicious with your political jabs. The truth is not in you. You are as dangerous with your pen as a terrorist with a weapon.

If you haven't learned by now - nothing you do will ever deter me from speaking the truth and fighting for what is right.

Think before you write and say untrue things in the future.

Forever resolved,

Sen. Jason Rapert
Arkansas Senate
District 35
Uh, OK, senator.
