Obama Hatred At McCain-Palin Rally: "Kill Him!"

.



By MARC McDONALD

Right-wing nutcases are displaying their foaming-at-the-mouth hatred of Barack Obama at McCain-Palin rallies lately. In this video, you can hear one nutjob scream, "Kill Him!"

But should we really be surprised at such unhinged hatred by Republicans?

After all, we've seen violent rhetoric like this before from wingnuts, aimed at Bill and Hillary Clinton. Examples:

In 2003, right-wing nutcase Michael Graham said of Hillary Clinton: "I wanted to bludgeon her with a tire iron."

Such inflammatory language is nothing new for the right-wing. Recall how Ann Coulter once wrote that the debate over Bill Clinton should be about "whether to impeach or assassinate."

Recall also the comment by Jesse Helms in 1994: "Mr. Clinton better watch out if he comes down here. He'd better have a bodyguard."

Or McCain pal G. Gordon Liddy's comment in 1995, when discussing how he'd used stick figures of the Clintons for target practice. "Thought it might improve my aim," he said.

I wouldn't worry too much about this. These have become, as you have noted, standard right wing tactics.

Most of these people belong in a mental institution for unstable persons, but I don't think that telling that will accomplish much. You're arguing with a mental illness here.

It should come as no surprise if the MSM lets McCain off for endorsing such vitriolic attacks. The MSM has a habit of not really being objective with anybody anymore.

Really though, this has become an accepted part of the Republican "win at all costs" tactic, along with other things such as voter intimidation. It is a disgrace, but I don't think that the right wing nuts see it that way. (Mind you if they did, they probably wouldn't be right wing nuts to begin with.)

Perhaps Obama should reuse LBJ's statement, "In your guts, you know that he's nuts."; these guys really are.

Hi Chris, thanks for your comment.
You know, it's interesting: the Right-Wing can dish out all kinds of insults, smears and threats.

But they've got extremely thin skins themselves. They're the most sensitive little wussies in the world. They always scream if someone insults them in the tiniest bit.

For example, the Right-Wingers were outrageous at the "horrible way" in which Palin was supposedly treated by the media.

I mean, the nerve of that mean Katie Couric! She actually dared to ask Palin what newspapers she read. What an insulting question!

It's clear the the MSM is all part of a Great Liberal Conspiracy to undermine America and GOP.

FEMA sources confirm coming martial law

(WMR) -- WMR has learned from knowledgeable Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sources that the Bush administration is putting the final touches on a plan that would see martial law declared in the United States with various scenarios anticipated as triggers. The triggers include a continuing economic collapse with massive social unrest, bank closures resulting in violence against financial institutions, and another fraudulent presidential election that would result in rioting in major cities and campuses around the country.

In addition, Army Corps of Engineer sources report that the assignment of the 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT) to the Northern Command’s U.S. Army North is to augment FEMA and federal law enforcement in the imposition of traffic controls, crowd control, curfews, enhanced border and port security, and neighborhood patrols in the event a national emergency being declared. The BCT was assigned to duties in Iraq before being assigned to the Northern Command.

On April 3, 2008, WMR reported on a highly-classified document regarding the martial law scenario: WMR has learned from knowledgeable sources within the US financial community that an alarming confidential and limited distribution document is circulating among senior members of Congress and their senior staff members that is warning of a bleak future for the United States if it does not quickly get its financial house in order. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is among those who have reportedly read the document.

The document is being called the “C & R” document because it reportedly states that if the United States defaults on loans and debt underwriting from China, Japan, and Russia, all of which are propping up the United States government financially, and the United States unilaterally cancels the debts, America can expect a war that will have disastrous results for the United States and the world. “Conflict” is the “C word” in the document. The other scenario is that the federal government will be forced to drastically raise taxes in order to pay off debts to foreign countries to the point that the American people will react with a popular revolution against the government. “Revolution” is the document’s “R word.

Someone painted "Death Obama" on the chimney of an Upper Arlington house that has a yard sign declaring "Another UA Citizen for Obama."

Well, Palin ignored the people shouting bad things about Obama? The Secret Service just investigated this and found no proof.

On the other hand, I HAVE SEEN FIRST HAND - at a McCain/Palin Rally, liberal protestors physically charged at and attempted to attack John McCain. The Secret Service dropped the wusses quickly and arrested them - and they deserved it.

So the left wants to complain about words?

That's funny...

Hi Undercoverguy,
re:
>>>On the other hand, I HAVE SEEN
>>>FIRST HAND - at a McCain/Palin
>>>Rally, liberal protestors
>>>physically charged at and
>>>attempted to attack John
>>>McCain.

Hmmm, are you sure you're telling us the truth here?

There's a couple of logical flaws with your story. One big problem is this: if what you say is true, then why didn't HateWing radio, Fox News and the rest of the GOP Noise Machine jump all over this and scream about it 24 hours a day?

Indeed, that would make their anti-Liberal propaganda that much more effective than the "stories" they ARE promoting (which are nothing more than a bunch of lies, smears and bullshit about everything from Ayers to Acorn).

Eddie said...

You ask undercover guy if he is telling us the truth, but ask us to believe you? Interesting?

Watched the video several times, couldn't hear "Kill Him". Couldn't hear anything really, but a lot of background noise, noise that I assume you can make any phrase out of if you listen close enough (and really want to hear it).

It's funny how the comments from Chris (really miss your blog Chris) claim most of the republicans are unstable and belong in a mental institution (I guess you've put those stones away, huh Chris), but we seem to think the comments about FEMA preparing to overtake America and declare martial law are the comments of the "normal" left.

The funny thing is there is no retaction to this story, following the Secret Service investigation that could not find one single person to collaberate hearing the "Kill Him" comment, other than the "unbiased" reporter writing the story. But again, isn't it easier just to let the lie float.

Why has this blog suddenly gone stale? Has Marc been silenced? These right wing bastards are just rabid enough in their beliefs to justify killing or stopping someone who speaks out against their insane agenda. They would call it the work of god.

I think you have mistaken your Chris's Eddie. The Red Hog Diary should be back in action around year end for your Holiday enjoyment!
