Be afraid (Should Kerry loses, do we need to fear Democrat terrorists?)
spectator.org ^ | 11/2/2004 1:08:09 AM | Shawn Macomber

Posted on 11/02/2004 8:10:49 AM PST by crushelits

Unfortunately, it appears that when Elizabeth Edwards speaks some people actually listen. This sad fact might be innocuous enough if the aspiring Second Lady were trading parenting or dieting tips. But instead semi-reformed former Deaniacs and Kucinich Kids seem to have latched onto Edwards' recent promise to a worried supporter that post-election riots will not wrack the nation -- so long as the Kerry-Edwards ticket walks away with it.

The suggestion, of course, is that there indeed will be riots if John F. Kerry's boyhood dreams of ascending to his rightful position as ruler of the universe are squashed by the result of today's voting. It is just such a scenario for which a group called No Stolen Elections is currently preparing. The newly-minted organization has already gotten more than 17,000 of the young and restless to sign the following pledge:

I remember the stolen presidential election of 2000 and I am willing to take action in 2004 if the election is stolen again. I support efforts to protect the right to vote leading up to and on Election Day, November 2nd. If that right is systematically violated, I pledge to join nationwide protests starting on November 3rd, either in my community, in the states where the fraud occurred or in Washington DC.

Among the better known John Hancocks adorning this pledge are those of Jesse Jackson, Michael Moore, Gloria Steinem, Howard Zinn, AFL-CIO Organizing Director Stewart Acuff, NAACP chairman Julian Bond, Daniel Ellsberg, Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb, and Barbara Ehrenreich, fresh from a stint as a New York Times substitute columnist. Oh, and clearly we wouldn't want to forget Adrienne Maree Brown, the dignified leader of the League of Pissed Off Voters.

So what exactly are these folks planning to make sure that "an unelected President does not enter the White House, like last time"? Well, the group has first of all established a "Fair Elections Advisory Council" of "international elections experts" to make a call on Election Day as to whether the vote was "stolen" again or not. If it has been -- and, let's face it, what are the chances any "international elections experts" are going to certify a Bush victory as just? -- No Stolen Elections will call its "Urgent Response Network" into action, "to converge in the states where the most serious fraud occurred, as well as in Washington DC." And the group is promising to make Florida circa 2000 look like a picnic.

"One thing that was missing from our side, but not from the conservative side, in 2000 was street heat," Steve Cobble writes on the group's website. "The GOP had their bourgeois riots, and their crowds were consistently bigger and more vocal, which helped frame in the media's mind the sense that their side had been wronged because Bush had won but Gore would not give up…We encourage people to work for regime change at home all day on November 2nd, election day, and then prepare to return to the streets on November 3rd (and perhaps beyond), at predetermined, symbolic, convenient locally-chosen sites."

All right, let's say what needs to be said: How bad can today's America really be if lazy lefty agitators can "work for regime change at home"? That's a pretty sweet gig compared to the depravities visited upon real activists with actual spines in countries such as Cuba -- a country, it is worth noting, the American hard-left continues to romanticize. Beyond that bit of absurdity, however, note that if Kerry wins the group has no interest in "counting every vote." Instead they suggest gathering instead to "celebrate Bush's involuntary retirement while also setting out a strong statement on the war in Iraq." Clearly, it is not the number of votes that concerns No Stolen Election, but the outcome. Are they interested in voter fraud if it results in a Kerry victory? Nope. These defenders of democracy will be too busy partying in the streets to riot over that.

In fact, No Stolen Elections' biggest fear seems to be that the saner elements in the Democratic Party will accept defeat. Cobble criticizes Gore for holding back activists in 2000, noting, "This was a mistake, and we don't believe the African American community or the unions will be willing to follow the campaign's lead again." Instead, Cobble said the activists will be in charge of these recounts.

"We must prod the Democratic Party to stand up this time, not just watch events occur in silence, as was largely the case in 2000," he writes. "We must encourage the few remaining respected blue-ribbon truth-tellers in our society to stand up and be counted -- people like Walter Cronkite, Jimmy Carter, Oprah Winfrey."

Oh, great. The inmates really are running the Democratic asylum this year, and they want to crown Jimmy Carter and Oprah Winfrey emperor and empress of U.S. elections. If we allow them to run the country, it won't be good for anyone. Before it's over George W. Bush could be in Siberian exile, while the much-despised Ralph Nader is forced to drive laps in a Ford Pinto while jeering activists hurl obscenities and tomatoes at him.

Brace yourself America. The aftermath of this election could be much worse than a floor covered in formerly hanging chads.

Locked and loaded. I spent some quality time recently with a close friend and his progressive loader. As Dave Barry put it so succinctly:

The metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.

I dont think it matters how close this election is this year, there is some elements of the democratic party who will be so distraught at a loss that they will take it to the streeets to punish all of us Bushies, prepare for havoc and ready the dogs of war.

It's worth noting that you'd never see mention of Republicans rioting in the streets if Bush lost the election.

When guns are outlawed, only the government will [legally] have guns.

This potential situation is exactly why we have a 2nd amendment -- the right to keep and bear arms.

Any civil or uncivil disobedience **will** halt at my property line.

Remember the Rodney King riots in LA? Recall how the city's minorities relied on the 2nd Amendment to protect their storefronts, businesses and families?

When the police and civil authorities are outnumbered by the crazies, the Second Amendment provides equalization.

Let them riot, indeed. I say "bring it".

Shouldn't be a problem. I predict most democrats will say they voted for Bush when Bush wins.

We will not hear them say this until the next election.
"Last time I voted for Bush but this time we need a change"
something like that!!

p.s. I live in heavily Republican Gwinnett County (suburban Atlanta) and the turnout is beyond all records. Took us :45 min in line, and less than 1 min. at the FLAWLESS voting machine.

I pose this question to any union people who might be here...Why would you continue to support a group in the DNC who continually vote for things that effect jobs and the economy in a negative way, such as raising Taxes. And why do you think that violence or intimidation against republicans would do anything but cause us to come out in even greater numbers for Bush.

YES! It's been going on for some time now. A Kerry loss would put these psychopaths over the edge.

I predict scattered violence with isolated rioting/looting in large cities.

The next round of terrorism will be from civil disobedience far worse that this country experienced in the 1960s and 1970s. The step following that will be law-abiding citizens taking up arms in self defense, and ending the turbulence on their own.

"Let them riot. It's pretty much their own nest they foul, anyway."

This really true - college campuses, inner cities, government entitlement agencies and the like will be magnets for any rioting. No matter what we think of these people, they simply are not stupid enough to spill over to conservative areas where the homeowners are sober and possibly armed.

I do not see how the left and right in this country will ever be reconciled again. The lefts blatant attempts to destroy this nation out of spite and hatred will never be forgiven. If they want a civil war then they are certainly on the right track to achieving it. They are in the process of destroying the entire electoral process and the voters faith in it with their hideous tactics. And, they seem to think it's just a joke. They are warped beyond all reason.

Do I FEAR democrat terrorists if Bush wins? No, I expect them. And will be prepared accordingly. The gloves have come off and it now seems that it is simply going to be an all out war for the future of this country.

So be it.

To seriously answer your question, yes. The great majority of leftists will not touch a weapon, relying upon others to do the work that they will propagandize, but there will be a certain numbers of Oswalds, Kazinskis, Armstrongs (math center bombing in late 60's), Sara Jane Moores, etc etc. Look for them to be greatly energised. It will not be pretty.

What do you mean "If they loose" ?

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal:


http://www.jsonline.com/news/election2004/site/weblogs.asp?id=39

TUESDAY, Nov. 2, 2004, 8:07 a.m. Police blotter: Slashed tires and spitting

The tires of at least 30 cars and vans rented by the Republican Party to carry voters to the polls were slashed, Milwaukee police said this morning. The discovery was made at 6:30 a.m., said Sgt. Mark Wroblewski.

The rental cars were parked near a GOP office in the 7100 block of W. Capitol Dr. Wroblewski said "at least" 30 cars were disabled. At least one tire was slashed and in some cases, all four tires were cut. Detectives were on the scene, the sergeant said. Police had no suspects in custody as of 8 a.m.

Very well stated. It is astounding that people are blind to Kerry. OBL could have worn and Kerry T-shirt and people would still vote for Kerry. The left is so full of hate - because they are pathetic and evil.
