Twitter users call for assassination of Gov. Scott Walker
examiner.com ^ | 2/21/2011 | Joe Newby

Posted on 02/22/2011 6:21:00 AM PST by FredJake

A video posted at The Blaze shows - once again - what passes for civil discourse among progressives, especially on the social networking site Twitter.

'lauren_2121' wrote "i hope scott walker dies. someone please shoot him?!"

'McGee12' tweeted "Everyone say it with SCOTT WALKER MUST DIE"

User 'jritsynme' wrote "He is the devil and deserves 2 be shot!!!"

Many more similar messages are shown in the 1.5 minute video.

One of the most disturbing is a tweet by user 'J_Shack' who wrote "Scott walker cut food stamps its over he gettin assassinated..!"

After the Tucson shootings that left Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords fighting for her life, users on Twitter sent similar messages wishing for the death of Sarah Palin.

Very little coverage was given to this by the mainstream media, who was busy trying to blame the Tea Party, Glenn Beck, clip art and conservative speech for the tragic shootings.

This is outrageous! Libs will not be happy until they have started a full-fledged civil war in this country. Where's the media? Where are the authorities?

I guess all those liberals screaming for civil discourse in the wake of the Giffords shooting never really learned the lessons, nor took them to heart.

The threats to "crack heads" are unlikely to be honestly covered
by PBS which led the charge (right, Jim?)

And where is Obama on this? Oh, silent of course. It's okay if liberals threaten conservatives, but conservatives get attacked if they use a common political phrase (i.e. when Sarah Palin said something about targeting certain Democrats in the last election cycle).

Obama should be ashamed, but liberals don't have the ability to feel shame, it appears.

This just means that the media will re-double its denunciation of the Tea Party. The Left are "the Good Guys" and we are "violent, hatefilled racists".

That's the script. Always has been.

It’s okay. These are liberals. They get to destroy us when we don’t even do the things they happily do. I’m expecting a medal of honor for these people!

The angrier and more overtly violent the Left becomes, the more the Right will be blamed. The stakes are getting higher by the day, as is the danger.

Silverback calls for these Twitter twits to be flogged in public.

Oh, and make them make their own whip like the Royal Navy used to do. Same punishment, of course, for any “conservative” who calls for the assassination of an elected official.

The media is with them. And, as far as civil war coming, so be it. The time has come to shut these vermin down. The left prides itself in diversity but that is only if you are a deviate. Homosexuals, lesbians, pedophiles, sadists, murders, terrorists all have a place at their table but God does not. They have no moral barometer, no moral conscience. They are sick and perverted and they need to have others of like mind to validate them. Whatever it takes to rid us of these parasites we must do including, of course, God the father's intervention.

It was never about civility. It was about silencing their opposition and demonizing entire segments of society.

Ever notice that people who hold an untenable position in an otherwise reasonable debate see the only way to win the debate is to kill the opposition? I always thought if you truly have a better argument, people would naturally gravitate to your side. Wait a minute...you don’t suppose this means the Left might actually be wrong, do you?

Obama wants this civil unrest, then he can declare Martial Law & take over, which has been their plan from day one!

I think so, but these people are just “wishing” someone else would do it. That’s probably ok.

It is becoming very clear, that in addition to the phrase that “Islam is the religion of peace....” we must add that “democrats and liberals are the the ones with compassion and politeness for all...”

Once upon a time, there was civil discourse in this country.

The most ironic thing in the whole union frenzy is that the unions are trying to stop states from reforming pensions, yet in WA DC, quietly behind closed doors members of congress are trying to come up with State bankruptcy statutes that is principally designed to allow States to walk away from public employee pensions.

Union leaders can't be that dumb..... So what is really going on here, there must be more than meets the eye in terms of the union organizing of protests and the Obahma political machine & DNC helping with the multi-state protests.

Something must be afoot that isn't being discussed.

Looks like Daddy Bush and Ole Bubba got their work cut out for them at their new Civil Discourse Institute.

No one on the left appears to be interested.

Theoretically, who could prosecute such calls for assassination of the governor? State AG? DOJ? Would there be a specific law applied regarding calls for assassination?

You may be right but I haven’t met them yet. Now I didn’t mean Democrat in the old sense of the word, I meant Democrat in the liberal/socialist/communist sense of the word - just to clarify myself.

If you threaten anyone, not just a governor, and that threat is delivered via an interstate communication network - like the internet - then you have possibly violated a number of federal statutes, 18 USC § 875(c) for example. Everyday, DoJ prosecutes people using these statutes.

Sarah Palin can’t put “targets” on elections she wanted her side to win, but leftists can call for assassinations. If somebody dies in WI (no matter what the cause, it was incited by this rhetoric!), I hope Obama has the t-shirts ready for an anti-union rally there.

Obama fault.

He is the most divisive and hate filled presidency this nation has yet had.

Americans that oppose Obama are enemies, said Obama.

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,
