shit they want to about conservatives, and somebody will air it.
Sometimes I think they want Obama to get shot. I do! I really think that there are conservative broadcasters in this country who would love to see Obama taken out. They *fear* socialism, they fear Marxism. They fear that the United States of America won’t be the United States of America anymore.
Which ones? Who knows? Maybe all of them. What, specifically, have they said to indicate this? As we’ve discussed before, evidence is not needed.
(Of course, Ed Schultz is on record actually openly wishing for the death of our former vice president:
He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion, Dick Cheney is, he is an enemy of the country. He’s making it harder for those who are in power right now to protect the country. He’s about the political divide. It just, I just think the guy’s such a freakin’ loser. You know, Lord, take him to the promised land, will you? See, I don’t even wish the guy goes to hell, I just want to get him the hell out of here.
But, I guess that didn’t count, now, did it? Or maybe he’s just studying up on the Psych 101 concept of projection.)
And then there’s this:
Experts who track hate groups across the U.S. are growing increasingly concerned over violent rhetoric targeted at President Obama, especially as the debate over health care intensifies and a pattern of threats emerges.
The article points to no evidence, besides an idiot with a sign and a man with a holstered, legal gun. Oh, and:
Experts say a sharp growth in so-called militia groups that helped spawn a wave of domestic terrorism in the 1990s – and are now using YouTube, rock music and the Internet to recruit members and spread hate and fear – shouldn’t be ignored.
You guys, they’re using rock music. Satan’s music, being used for political protest! Surely this is all the evidence that we need of their evil ways!
(BTW, ABC, you might want to check with the White House, who say that there have been no increases in threats at this time. Just sayin’)
And, don’t worry, Robert Gibbs, like any good press secretary, also has the magic ability to see into opponents’ minds:
I don’t think there’s any doubt that in some ways — look, I — I think some of you were disappointed yesterday that the president didn’t get yelled at, sure. I don’t think there’s any doubt about that.
