Will there be race riots if Obama loses?
examiner.com ^ | 10/10/2012 | Howard Portnoy

Posted on 10/10/2012 4:54:51 PM PDT by Signalman

There are plenty of good reasons for making Barack Obama a one-term president, among them his adding of $5 trillion to the national deficit and presiding over the slowest recovery since World War II. But reason goes out the window along with common sense for dozens of Twitter followers who have posted threats to riot if Romney wins.

Twitchy offers up an assortment of tweets that center on this theme. The majority of them are in black “eye dialect. Here is a sampling:

I Heard Mitt Romney , Tryna Take Away Food Stamps , If He Do ."IMA START A RIOT , IMA START A RIOT" —@ThugPickles

If Romney win Imma start riot!— IG: Mocha_21 (@SpoilMe24_7) —@SpoilMe24_7

If Romney is elected president, its gon be a riot its gon be a riot. —PhillyB_2Insane

on b if romney become president im a start a riot on 11th in front of heb and subway. oh im a make the damn news. espn, kbtv, and kfdm.— You askin too much!! (@MyCup_OILY) —@MyCup_OILY

If ROMNEY GETS IN THE WHITE HOUSE ...U MIGHT AS WELL KILL ME NOW .....CAUSE ITS GONNA BE A MOTHERF**KIN RIOT !!! —@J_freakyArtemis

Twitchy notes that a number of the tweets have since been deleted, and one poster has apologized for his tweet, claiming it was a “joke.” And an hilarious one at that.

I seriously doubt it. There might be a little unrest but I doubt there will be anything major.

There might have been race riots, if Obama and the media gave off the impression that he was a favourite to win, but lost.

He’s doing so poorly that it shouldn’t be a surprise if he loses, so I don’t expect riots.

There would be far more unrest if government actually got to work and did what they really need to do but there isn’t much danger of that happening no matter who gets elected.

Forget "How are you gonna get 'em back on the farm after they've seen Paree?"

The question now is, "How ya gonna get 'em back to supporting themselves, after they've had four years of free everything?" They LOVE that free stuff and want more of it, not less.

They always love a good excuse to take other people’s stuff. Either by government or by theft and rioting they want to get someone elses money.

Time they grow up, stop being children and earn their own money IMO.

If obama loses there will be riots, big riots, long riots.
If obama wins there will be an American Revolution 2.0.

Even if there WERE going to be race riots, the last thing in the world anyone should do is to back down at the threat, and vote for the riot-instigator-in-chief. That would be a sure-fire recipe for disaster.

Those who are looking for reasons to riot will riot.

I would expect some major protests/Occupy shenanigans on the day of Romney's swearing in--assuming he wins.

How much is enough? I don’t see a prolonged firefight so just how much should I have on hand. 200 - 300 rounds per weapon?

In 1964 they told me that if I voted for Goldwater there would be riots in cities and we would have half a million troops in Vietnam. They were right: I voted for Goldwater and we had riots in the streets and half a million troops in Vietnam.

Prediction: there will be riots, regardless of who wins.

There will definitely be riots.
Even if they, the “youths” et al, are not really that upset, just the opportunity that will be presented to riot, and they relish the thought, will goad them on. Riot they will!
And that is one of the best reasons we have for rooting for Romney. Because this will show their true colors. If they don’t get what they want, they will resort to violence, democracy be damned. The “silent majority” will be strengthened, for years to come. SO.... let it be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajCYQL8ouqw&info=Beatles_LetItBe

It could perhaps be the best thing that could happen to this nation. Reality is something that we are afraid to face.

Too long have we lived in a dream world repeating the same lie over and over again that multiculturalism is our great strength and that MLK’s dream has been fullfilled.

No way, Jose!

These animals riot over basketball games. You can be assured that if Obama is not re-elected that there will be bloody riots in Los Angeles and Chicago and Detroit and possibly a few other Democrat run Hell holes.

Depends on how good a shot you are.

I don't think more than 5 or 10 targets will present before the rest determine that the grass is greener a few miles away.

It depends on Obama and how he concedes the election. If he is as cordial as McCain was (even though he sucked as a candidate, he was very gracious in his defeat). If Obama can get his folks behind Romney then it will be ok.

If "The Divine One" and his deluded followers expect him to win and he in fact loses, then there will be riots.

The riots could be quite severe resulting in the resolution of race issue through we whites being completely subordinated.

Stay away from all inner city black ghetto areas. Take your families to safe suburban locations. Buys extra guns and ammunition now. Be on guard for blacks burning homes and businesses down. Shoot first or die. They’ll be looking for white women to rape and white men to beat and kill. The major cities in this country will burn for weeks. Police departments that fail to shoot rioters and looters on sight will suffer the most casualties. It’s going to be bloody and deadly.

People seem to have a distorted view of Rioting. Outside of the rioting in LA and Detroit, its generally confined to a pretty small area. Even in those cases it wasn’t a city wide event.

Funny thing is that the Detroit riot of 67 started with something that most FReepers would probably say should have been left well enough alone. (Raided an unlicensed bar)
