The Last Time Right-Wing Hatred Ran Wild Like This a President Was killed

Edited on Sat Sep-19-09 09:23 AM by Christa
That being John F. Kennedy, who was gunned down in Dallas, of course.

I've been thinking a lot of Kennedy and Dallas as I've watched the increasingly violent rhetorical attacks on Obama be unfurled. As Americans yank their kids of class in order to save them from being exposed to the President of the United States who only wanted to urge them to excel in the classroom. And as unvarnished hate and name-calling passed for health care 'debate' this summer.

The radical right, aided by a GOP Noise Machine that positively dwarfs what existed in 1963, has turned demonizing Obama--making him into a vile object of disgust--into a crusade. It's a demented national jihad, the likes of which this country has not seen in modern times.

4. There's a segment of the population who won't be satisfied until he's dead

After a few glasses of wine last night, I told my husband that I think Obama's days are numbered. I know that's a horrendous thing to even think, never mind say, but there's so much sheer hatred and insanity going around. Couple that with one or two secret service guys who might be in on a plot, (think Robert Kennedy), and nasty things have a habit of coming true in this country.

I really, really hope I'm wrong.

8. Our media is equally complicit.

By putting these wackos front & center 24x7, they are amplifying their voice & giving validity to their "concerns." translation: How dare the media show ANYONE not agreeing with our hero president. When they do that we can't enact the leftist agenda that Obama is advocating for. We'd actually get everything we want if no one could publicly disagree with him.

14. Yes, the lunacy will escalate until there is some sort of right wing terrorist attack somewhere...

...either that or an assassination attempt on Obama. It wouldn't surprise me to see some sort of attack against Democrats, something like the anthrax attack we saw in 2001. It will probably be in response to healthcare reform.

The scary thing that I have noticed is that the Republican punditry, FOX news and the Republicans in congress all seem to be trying to instigate violent acts. They are cheer leading the lunacy and trying to legitimize it by claiming the hateful rhetoric is just, 'regular folks who are mad.'

The up side to all of this is that the GOP has publicly gone Koo Koo. The lunatics have taken over the asylum. The GOP leaders in congress have lost control. The republican party is now led by FOX news. FOX news and the GOP are now one in the same.

They are driving all the normal people out of their party. If you hold any beliefs that resemble reality, you are not welcome in the GOP. Hispanics have been driven out to the point that their support within the GOP is now at the margin of error, 3%.

The more they play to their base, the further off the deep end their base goes and the crazier they become. It is a downward spiral that is feeding itself. The GOP has become so out of touch with reality that they are no longer relevant.

22. Faux is only the loudest and most egregious of the networks promoting the anti-Obama

agenda. CNN, MSNBC, CBS all have their share of knee-jerk coverage that only feeds the fire.

"The GOP has become so out of touch with reality that they are no longer relevant." If they're no longer relevant how is it that they have totally altered the content of the legislation to reform health care? How is it that they have managed to cow the Democratic Party leadership and turn them into centrists instead of Democrats? How is it that we are still spending hundreds of billions of dollars and wasting the lives of Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan--and at a faster clip than when BushCo was in charge?

All of this rhetoric about the demise of the Republican party is just propaganda. Don't buy it.

And remember that Hitler's National Socialist Party represented less than 1/3 of Germans when it took power. It's not about numbers. It's about commitment and passion. Every image that the networks show of reich-wingers bashing the President or calling his citizenship into question is stimulating the passion of the nutcases and making them more dangerous.

17. I know this will trigger a shitstorm, but the man who killed JFK was a leftist, a Soviet sympathizer

JFK would have been regarded as a conservative by many people today. The trade embargo against Cuba was strengthened to its present form by his executive orders.

And liberals even made a movie about Bush being assassinated. Not some nameless made up president but Bush specifically.

Also, as was said, if you believe the Warren commission, Oswald was a self admitted Marxist-Leninist. That means he was left wing. That said, why would the GOP murder the president knowing that the VP is a Democrat as well as the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. The right/GOP would gain nothing. Add the fact that Johnson was re-elected in 1964 and most likely would have been re-elected in '68.

Stop calling Communism a left-wing philosophy. Remember that the Conservatives are the people who want small government, which includes people like Josef Stalin (who used the government to take over everything) and Adolf Hitler (who used the government to take over everyone). These were Conservatives, guys. They wanted small government just like Reagan did; that's why they expanded it tremendously and used it to invade every aspect of daily life. Don't forget it.

Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley were all Republicans killed by leftists/anarchists.

Kennedy, a democrat, was killed by a communist.

Robert Kennedy was killed by a islamic extremist.

I should add that if Obama gets assassinated (and I hope he does not) it will be by a left wing homosexual that is mad about his stance on gay marriage or a Code Pinko who is mad about the war. That is my prediction.

And let's not leave out that Squeaky Fromme was a member of the Manson Family. Not exactly a right leaning philosophy there.
And Hinkley was just a loon trying to impress a girl. This is probably one of the few if not only assassination attempt that wasn't politically motivated.

This post makes no sense.

Small governments that have very little power control everything/ everyone?

Large governments with huge amounts of power don't control everything/ everyone?

Both Hitler and Stalin both promised hugo governments that would give people massive benifits and crush people who disagreed with them; shows like Moonbats to me.

I believe it was the democrats who where the most upset by Kennedy and his push for equal rights for blacks. Until Johnson usurped this issue by creating a welfare state for blacks, it was the republican who were leading the charge for desegregation.

"Yes, the lunacy will escalate until there is some sort of right wing terrorist attack somewhere...

...either that or an assassination attempt on Obama."
I see kind of the opposite result happening:
Ultra- liberals are rapidly becoming so enraged over the success and growth of the tea party movement that I'd definitely imagine them eventually engaging in a violent act against the tea party protestors.
They started by mocking our movement (i.e. calling us "Teabaggers") and thinking it wouldn't do anything, but then when they saw that the movement was successful and growing, it made them start to get scared. That fear gave way to anger, as the DU thread indicates, so I really don't think it will be long before the far- leftists begin reacting with violence against the tea partiers.

This is pretty much what I was going to say, just not as coherently:)

From what I have read in my other right-wing Forums, any Liberal bringing violence
against a Tea Party is going to get a BIG (but conceal-carried) surprise, if you get
what I'm hinting at.
