As Sarah Palin’s crowd in Scranton was being warmed up today, one man called for blood:
Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama, the crowd booed loudly.
One man screamed “kill him!”
One man screamed “kill him!”
From that same article:
"Other than the lone man, there were no other such outbursts."
@1 Yeah, but it's part of a larger pattern. That's the problem.
And it's OK because it was only one guy? Fuck your mother with a rusty icepick, Bailo.
Those are just Obama planted people....dontchu reed conservitive blogz?
The real question is ... what did Palin say in response? Or did she just wink?
They said that in Dallas a few years back.
#2 writes "Fuck your mother with a rusty icepick, Bailo."
Is SLOG going to do a post on what Obama supporters say?
#6 "They said that in Dallas a few years back."
Is that where you moved from?
I saw Obama speak at an event on Saturday and the whole time I just could not shake the feeling that something bad is going to happen to him. His candidacy, the speech he gave, his personal narrative – it’s all almost too perfect, as if it was out of a movie script.
I don’t know, I hadn’t been that worried about it previously, but something about all of the craziness last week and then seeing him in person made me truly nervous. I couldn’t stop thinking “Bobby Kennedy”.
McCain could take this opportunity to be the better statesman and expand on his comments to the women who said “He’s an Arab” and the man who said he was afraid of an Obama presidency. Make it a strong theme of his campaign this week that people need to cut this shit out. But, somehow I doubt that is going to happen.
#9: Why do Obama supporters always want to silence criticism? This is the same repressive anti-Science techniques used by Gore ("the science is settled...you're all Deniers").
The problem is Obama is a very sketchy, problematic candidate for most Americans...and he has been force fed by the media as this saintly guy.
But the facts show otherwise, and that cognitive dissonance between what he says, and what the press says about him, and the reality of his life and upbringing are so radically difference that they cannot be rectified.
I actually expect less from these crowds.
Mr. Bailo and others:
There was an interesting conversation this weekend on one of the cable news shows. The right wing guy -- Scarborough -- lamenting the insidious comparison of McCain to G. Wallace-- his lefty pal Mika unable to quite articulate why the cries for blood at a McCAin rally are so more disturbing than when left wing types "disrespect" GWB by showing him hung in effigy etc.
It's because there's about 5 centuries of violence against black people by white people, including in this nation, and including just a few decades ago.
I do not know of any right wing leaders who were assassinated. Wallace I guess was close. But by and large we have seen Kennedy, Kennedy, King and others killed who were pro civil rights, on top of all those centuries of enslavement, violent patrols by the white population against all the blacks, lynchings, etc.
So, when we hear about "one guy" yelling "kill him" and we don't hear about McCain telling the Secret Service to go question that guy it's kind of worrisome.
It only takes one, and any candidate against whom there are yells of "kill him," should be assured that the SS will take action and the other candidate will immediately denounce, reject and expose this kind of proto-fascist violence.
Also, other than that lone man at this rally was the other guy at the other rally and of course, we only see the tip of the iceberg.
You right wing idiot.
Very truly yours,
#12: "But by and large we have seen Kennedy, Kennedy, King and others killed who were pro civil rights..."
Er, sorry, but John F. Kennedy was not "pro civil rights" -- he did everything he could to obfuscate King's efforts and his brother "Bobby" practically villified Dr. King.
It was Johnson who passed the Civil Rights legislation (and old white dude).
@10 No, no that wasn't me that was that damn sock puppet again. I maybe dumb but I am not that dumb!
PC is talking sense? Goddamn, I need a drink.
Damn sock puppet making me look bad!
"It's because there's about 5 centuries of violence against black people by white people, including in this nation, and including just a few decades ago."
A few decades ago? Gosh.
Luke Esser introduce Dino Rossi to Slog, Dino Rossi read Slog, choose clever Internet troll alias, freak out, Bailo out, DINO ROSSI BECOME JOHN BAILO!
JOHN BAILO WILL TROLL SLOG INCESSANTLY, SAY LAUGHABLY STUPID SHIT IN DEFENSE OF REPUGLICAN WORLDVIEW, JUMP SHARK AND KEEP ON WATER-SKIING!
And no, I don't feel like letting it go.
Oh, and #12, ever hear of this little known Republican President...named Abraham Lincoln?
Um ... duh. Those are misquotes! Because no rabidly conservative crowd would ever yell out non-sequitors or nonsense!
Bailo = Troll
#17: "violence against black people by white people"
Have you spoken to the family of James Paroline?
Whew! I smell bad! Day 54 but I will not bathe until the hero McCain wins the White House. No soap for me!
Failo spake from his bunker in Kent, huddled in his secret command post by the washing machines off the parking garage:
Why do Obama supporters always want to silence criticism?
John Bailo = Mr. Poe
I mean let's face it, the republicans a much more pro black than the democrats. I mean like at all the jobs we give them cutting our lawns, as butlers and maids. They would be on the streets without the white man!
Finally Americans are becoming passionate about their government. NOW maybe we won't see them running rough shod over us and tearing us apart. Scream what ever you like, just VOTE.
One freak yells "kill him" and all Right Wing voters are called nuts? Come people you can think deeper than that. When a mob starts to yell "kill him" then we might have a problem.
also, PC = John Bailo = Mr. Poe
Bailo/Smeagol is just mad that Frodo won't give him back the ring...
@27 It only takes one snowball to start an avalanche.
@19 - Lincoln did NOT really free ANY slaves. Our Civil War was fought to preserve the Republic.
Let's hear someone at an Obama rally shout that about McCain and the Republitards would piss themselves.
Why is this subject repeatedly turned, by conservatives, into a conversation about equivalence?
They should admit that outbursts such as "kill him," and "off with his head" are inappropriate and condemn them. Such statements are not legitimate criticism, they are calls to commit a violent act and they are unacceptable as civil discourse.
The one man screaming, "kill him" in the crowd is guilty according to action; the candidate before the crowd, complicit through inaction.
Sarah Palin is already doing serious damage to this country. She is actually more divisive than GWB. She is the wost kind of politician: hiding behind religion, mongering hate, oversimplifying complex issues, telling people anything they want to hear... let there be no doubt, she is devoid of any substantive knowledge and would run this country into the ground.
What was Bailo doing in Scranton?
Pah. It's just like all those stories about how Suicide got all the punks so stirred up back in the 70s that they'd keep getting booed and bottled whenever they opened for Elvis Costello or the Clash or someone. Then all the punks 30 years later heard all the old stories and started going to Suicide shows just to hurl bottles and shout abuse they didn't mean.
Anyone who yells Obama death threats at a McCain/Palin rally in this day and age is just a nostalgia freak who wishes they'd been around back in the McCain/Palin rally golden age of early October '08.
So, um, why isn't that guy in GITMO right now?
