UP to four people have been arrested over an alleged plot to kill Barack Obama at this week's Democratic convention.

Reports from Denver have said three or four men with possible links to a white supremacist group have been arrested and the plot had been to kill Senator Obama when he accepts the Democratic presidential nomination at the end of this week.

The reports say the men were found with guns, ammunition, a rifle scope, a bullet-proof vest and walkie-talkies.

One report says one of those arrested made threats against Senator Obama to police, but that some officials believe he might have just been causing a scene.

"It's premature to say that it was a valid threat or that these folks have the ability to carry it out. It could also turn out that these were nothing but a bunch of knuckleheads," officials were quoted as saying.

Whoever they are, please be my guest and lock them away in a cell that wont see daylight for a hundred years. Forget there ever was a key.

Allow them in with the general population in prison.

And I don't care what your feelings are about Obama, if he is assasinated now it will have negative repercussions for the nation for years.

Better to just beat him at the ballot box :D

I agree. Obama maybe a useless piece of trash, but he still doesn't deserve to be murdered or hurt for that matter.

Just deplorable. I highly disagree with the man's politics and generally think he'd be a horrible president but to threaten his life? That sickens me. Put these idiots away for 25 years of hard time serving in Gen Pop at Sing Sing or Rikers, see if they last a week.

Freaking idiots like this are the people who give us logical, rational, law abiding, country-loving, SANE Conservatives a bad name. How much you wanna bet that this plot by Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel is touted by the Soros/MoveOn crowd as concrete proof of "right-wing conspiracies, racism & hatred"? :mad:

Lee Harvey Oswald was born in New Orleans on 18th October, 1939

The following year Oswald became interested in politics. He read books written by Karl Marx and told friends that he was a Marxist. He also joined the Young People's Socialist League.

Yeah, but Eyelids probably thinks that President George H.W. Bush killed Kennedy, not Oswald.

To pigeonhole a white nationalist/supremacist as a 'right winger' is like just reflexively calling environmental terrorists 'liberals'. Most conservatives, like most liberals, are actually semi-sensible people at their core, but the fact is that most families have 'black sheep': the off-the-wing individuals that we don't like to talk about or be associated with, because it makes the rest of us look bad. Myself, I'm the only non-Democrat in my entire living family. :D

Yes, 90+% of "racists" would probably describe themselves as conservatives, just like the people that torched those houses in Washington and California would probably call themselves liberals. However, your average Democrat voter isn't going to like arson and vandalism any more than the average Republican likes this plot against Senator Obama.

As Sonnabend pointed out, the murder of Senator Obama would be a stain on this country's history - this is America, not Venezuela. Personally, if I don't like someone - say a presidential candidate for example - the prospect of them losing the election beats their untimely death by a million to one. I, for one, am glad that the Senator is unharmed.

:mad::mad:You can tell the difference immediately between a conservative site and a liberal one because after looking at the replies about those who wanted to harm Obama the conservatives are against those who wanted to do it while if it had been a conservative who was threaten the liberals would have been all for it and issuing threats of their own.

I heard these guys on the radio today. (KFI 640 Los Angeles--we get their signal here in SD) The one sounded like a stupid meth head. While they might have had the will, my guess is they wouldn't have gotten past the first cop. That's why they were assessed as a low threat and that one guy was given a bail of 10K.

:rolleyes: FACT - the police have determined that these people were NOT A CREDIBLE THREAT to Obama. They were just racists high on drugs spouting off at the mouth.

However - HUNDREDS of idiot liberal-facist hope-ium smoking Obama disciples were chanting 'death to Michelle Malkin' at the convention.

These idiots have been charged with drug and weapons charges. They have not been charged with an assassination plot. Got it, moron. One of them was released on a $10k bond. A lefty Denver judge would not have allowed bond period if he perceived the threat was real. Do you know who Robert Jewell is dummie?

Probably the same one that got Michelle Obama (aka Robinson) into a top university PAID FOR WITH OUR TAX MONEY. Have you read her racist college thesis? Not only does it expose her racism, but it is so full of errors that even an 8th grader could do a better job.

Because they aren't guilty of what you claim they are guilty of. Also, you entirely missed the point that the DEMOCRATS are behaving in the disgusting manner that you just accused the Republicans of acting.

Yet again you miss the obvious (and the truth).
