Radio Host Diane Rehm says "Republicans have wanted to kill Obama from the time he was elected"
WAMU.org ^

Posted on 01/22/2010 7:16:57 PM PST by SilvieWaldorfMD

A listener to Washington, DC's news talk radio station WAMU - 88.5FM (an NPR station) wrote the following today in the D.C. Radio & Television web site's Mailbag section (www.dcrtv.com)--

"Dear DCRTV: Diane Rehm on her 01/22/10 10am domestic politics show on WAMU said that "Republicans have wanted to kill Obama from the time he was elected." None of the guests said a word in response. Is Diane getting too old for the show or is she just showing her true colors? Her comment deserves some media attention. It's outrageous. Rgds. lanzil (1/22/10)"

I was appalled. I've included a link to Rehm's web page at WAMU, which has links to her podcast of today (1/22/10). Had words like these been uttered by Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Levin, etc., they'd be driven out of town and fired from their jobs.

This is unbelievable. Typical NPR station staple.

She evidently has some information that none of the rest of us have.....

The Secret Service should probably spend some quality time with her......

Diane is one of the most vile, irritating hacks on Public commie radio. On the rare occasion that she allows a guest with a conservative world view, her contempt for him just drips out of the speakers.

We sometimes listen to the left leaning news at work to get a laugh. When this commie comes one, the station changes.

Silvie, I am sure you know about this appalling woman. I have wondered for years why she has a radio program. Just her screechy wavery voice is enough to drive a person crazy, let along the endlessly loopy PC stuff she parrots. True story: I was in Neiman’s at Mazza Gallerie minding my own business and, from across the entire store, like from cosmetics to all the way over to scarves and gloves, I could hear her talking to her friend, kind of a stream-of-consciousness narration of everything she saw. It was horrible. Every once in a while there would be a hyena-like laugh. I went upstairs to try on coats, but could still hear her. It was like she was haunting me. I had to leave.

My feeling is that IF anything did happen to President Obama it would come from the left NOT the right. The right wants to vote him out and don't like him. The left is a bunch of haters and thugs that believe the end justifies the means.

She's really not old - she has some neurological condition that makes her sound like a halting 90-year-old woman, which I guess supposedly endears her to her leftist fans. I've listened to her at length trying to detect the attraction: an entertaining wit; a sharp, reasoning mind; an original thinker. I found none of this.

I know of no one calling for his death- that is a crime and immoral. We just want the usurper out of office before he causes more damage.

I bet this ass is projecting and actually wanted Bush dead.

I think talk of killing the president, any president, ought to result in a frank discussion with the secret service. I am old enough to remember such a murder as well as a few attempts on presidents and this is not a light subject.

No, not quite.

It's the Libs who have wanted Republicans to want to kill Obama since the moment he was elected.

Left wing projection at its most stupid.

What to say about Diane Rehm? If you want to gain an understanding of the modern leftist mind, listen to a few of her broadcasts. Not elucidating at all, no critical thinking or analysis... really, nothing that cannot be found in the pages of that local DC paper. And incredibly painful to listen to. Her speech problem aside, the woman is as thick as a brick; there's not much going on in her head. And yet the bolshies tune in, presumably satisfied with themselves for having endured another round of mental flagellation and happy to have reinforced the programming they receive from the state media.

We need to get NPR defunded.

If a conservative talker said that, they’d likely be off the air.

Diane Rehm always seems very uninformed. She just seems reflexively liberal; and overall just seems intellectually shallow.

The libs pull this out everytime Obama’s in trouble.

Personally, I think it’s a projection fantasy. Especially now. The hopeychangey period is over. Now comes the long slog.

From their point of view they have to look back to previous Democrat presidents to predict their future. Since Obama’s unwilling to do a Clintonian shift to the center, I believe that they fantasize that Obama will be a martyr.

Given the disappointment that the Left is having with Obama, I think the Left should be where the Secret Service focuses their attention.

In context, what she said actually does represent a tangible threat to the life of the president of the United States. As such, it is incumbent on the Secret Service to pay her a visit to ask her *at least* if she has *any* evidence, whatsoever, of any individual or group that have been or are planning to kill the president.

What she said can, again in context, indicate any of several tangible threats. First of all, it could be interpreted as a *direct* threat to the president of the United States. That is, that she is inciting someone else to attempt to kill the president.

It is equivalent to saying that “somebody should kill the president.”

Second, it could be seen as above, that she has direct knowledge of a plot or conspiracy to kill the president.

Third, it is political incitement, not personal incitement, implying that “Obama has failed” the extreme left, so he should be killed by them, and the right should be blamed for the killing.

In any of these cases, or other possibilities not considered, there is probable cause for the Secret Service to at least question Diane Rehm, because what she said clearly rises to the point where an investigation is warranted.

Funny you should mention that, because she did take a spill in the radio station parking lot around 6 months ago breaking a bone, and was off the air recovering for a couple of months. Now she's back, in all her acrid snottiness. Wonder if she ever thought about how Øbamaocare would have taken care of her.
