Otto_E_Rodika: Sargun: super_grass: [www.zombietime.com image 483x612]

Just a little perspective for y'all.

And unlike the right wing, we actually denounce those who call for violence against living human beings. We were also among those who criticized the Nobel council for giving Obama the Peace Prize. Unlike the right wing, our extremists don't become our Presidential candidates.

Otto_E_Rodika: Selective outrage over hyperbolic speech. Hypocrisy at its finest. How quickly the left forgets that vitriol and overt threats made against Bush.

This film even won a number of awards and praise from Roger Ebert. A filmed assassination of a sitting president. But remember, it's just a movie when the left does it.

[www.statebrief.com image 282x400]

The film wasn't about killing Bush, it was about the consequences of an assassination - that is, what America becomes after such an event. Anybody who actually read about or watched the film would know this, but that's too much work for your brain cells isn't it?

No, having seen the film, the assassination is part of an elaborate left-wing fantasy that allows them to spew rhetoric about Cheney and the Patriot Act in the guise of entertainment. Meanwhile, Obama runs around the country spiking the football about OBL, conveniently ignoring that the intelligence that led to his courier, and eventually to OBL, was obtained by water boarding a member of Al Qaeda.

We still maintain on the words John Wilkes Booth yelled when he shot Lincoln on the Virginia state flag: Sic Semper Tyrannis. The Maryland state song also references the line (the song is outright anti-union, which is not surprising as it wasn't written by a Marylander at all).

Dear Mother burst thy tyrant's chain.
Maryland!
Virginia should not call in vain.
Maryland!
She meets her sisters on the plain.
"Sic semper!" tis the proud refrain.
That baffles minions back amain.
Maryland my Maryland!


When I filled out my security clearance application they asked if I was ever a member of an organization that advocated the overthrow of the government by force or violence. I pointed out I had worked for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

jodaveki: So dead American soldiers in a questionable invasion seem the fuel for the fire. Does the shape of the economy, an imperfect reform of health insurance, pro-gay marriage statements, the repeal of DADT, fiscal stimulus & quasi-amnesty for immigrant children qualify to ignite the same kind of fire against Obama that was lit against Bush?


On August 4, 2000, when Bush won the Republican nomination (but before he was president), Craig Kilborn on CBS's The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn ran a graphic of the words "SNIPERS WANTED" under George Bush as he gave his acceptance speech. Although CBS belatedly apologized five days later, Kilborn was never investigated, questioned or punished, and continued to host the show for four more years.

Free speech is one thing, inviting an assassin to take out anyone, let alone the US head honcho, is another thing. Perhaps she should have just said "I disagree with the current president" and left it at that.

Hell, she could have even went so far as to call him dirty names and insult his mother. But she took it a step...nay, an Incredible Hulk Leap further and actually made specific statements about wishing he would be assassinated. That pushes it into a whole 'nother level. The kind where the SS would like a word with you.

Funny, cuz I was a registered Republican all 8 years and voted for him twice-- which I now regard as grave errors. All I remember were calls to have him tried along with Cheney & Rumsfeld as war criminals. I don't recall hearing so many say he should be murdered/assassinated/killed.

The Secret Service follows up on stuff like this all the time and has done so since before there was an Internet. It's a total judgment call which threats they take seriously enough to do something about it besides a cursory investigation.
