Politically motivated presidential assassinations come from only one side of the political spectrum.
By Christopher Cook
Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Ford, has been released from prison.
The caption under her photo reads...
"Sara Jane Moore, shown here in a photo from 1975, said she was blinded by her radical political views at the time, convinced that the government had declared war on the left."
We have been pointing out for a long time that political violence is part of the left's stock and trade, and that political violence perpetrated by Republicans is almost non-existent.**
With that in mind, the news of Sara Jane Moore's release—and a recognition of her motive and political identity—got me to thinking. Of our list of presidential assassins and would-be assassins, what were their political persuasions and motivations?
In the interests of time, I have chosen to use...

Well like the entire South, John Wilkes Booth was an evil democrat party slavery supporter.
Republicans, basically, take life seriously.
They still support a form of slavery; they’re just good at calling it something else, and getting folks to believe it.
This woman has made no public statement of remorse or an apology for her attempted assassination of President Ford. Oh, that’s right. She was released from a prison in San Francisco. Funny how they waited until after Ford died to release her.
Right you are!
"The democrat party: enslaving blacks since 1820."
Was John Hinkleys familey GOP or rats?
Some of them were friends with Bush 41 and family, I believe.
>> Some of them were friends with Bush 41 and family, I believe.
Then there’s a good chance they were ‘rats.
How about that guy who flew his Cessna into the White House?
bump for later
That was the director of the CIA trying to get a meeting with clinton
I want the cigar and single malt concession at that party.
Mary Surratt is the one on the left. It’s said she still walks the halls of the Old Capital Prison.
I have no doubt on election day, the dem party lets her vote.
And the Unibomber.
A terrorist and lib environmentalist.
So .. the “tolerant’ party believes shooting people is a much better solution than having to listen to the truth.
I wonder how long it will be before she shows up as a celebrated hero on DU??
I am starting to wonder if in fact all social and personal dysfunctions are the result of the seductions of the left, as well as the more extreme forms such as presidential assassinations.
Don’t forget Diem in South Viet Nam which was a Democratic hit.
It would be interesting to include other American political assainations or attempts besides Presidents. People like RFK, MLK, and Wallace. Are there others out there?
I take exception to this article. It separates the democrats and the mentally ill into two classes. No scholarly research exists to support this distinction. :)
Vicious and repugnant. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.
Looking at where most crimes occur and who is committing them, it is easy to describe democratics and crimes as equivalents.
Even liberals know not to venture into democratic neighborhoods.
And while most crime is democratic on democratic, we all pay the price.
It is a “mad distemper that strikes down both beggar and king”!
Yep! EVERYTHING I learn each day reinforces my understanding of the madness and perfidy that is the ideology of the left.
Brother, I found you!!!!!!!!! :)~
NBC is the same hategroup that in December 11, 1998 conspired with Alec Baldwin to deliver a hate filled outburst on the Conan O’Brien Show, an emotional tantrum in which Baldwin called for the execution death of Congressman Henry Hyde and his family for Clinton’s impeachment.
But that is not all. NBC invited Alec Baldwin to host Saturday Night Live in April, 2001. Obviosly, no hard feelings nor regrets by either participant about executing U.S. elected officials.
On 5/4/2001, NBC’s “Nightly News with Tom Brokaw” featured a composite graphic that briefly showed President Bush framed by what looked like the crosshairs of a riflescope, while the anchorman talked about “taking aim” at a Bush proposal.
The Bush-crosshairs image was used to set up a report on the president’s strategic missile defense plan.
In the brief clip, an image of the earth spinning in space morphs into what looks like a riflescope’s crosshairs, which onscreen as an image of President Bush materializes.
The crosshairs remain visible over the president, centered on his right shoulder, for approximately a half second. Both images fade to video of a missile blazing into the sky.
In a voiceover during the outrageous segment, NBC anchorman Tom Brokaw says:
“Taking aim at the president’s controversial new Star Wars idea - is it really the best defense?”
It brings to mind Jesse Jackson is relieved when he finds that the people walking behind him are demoncrats. ;-)
Giuseppe Zangara, shot Anton J. Cermak,(Mayor of Chicago) Feb. 15, 1933, in Miami and also attempted to assassinate Franklin D. Roosevelt; Cermak died March 6. Zangara was charged with murder and after being found guilty was sentenced to death in the electric chair at the Florida State Penitentiary. When he heard his sentence he yelled at the judge, "You give me electric chair. I no afraid of that chair! "You're one of capitalists!"
2 Puerto Rican Nationalists (similar to those FALN types that Clinton released in 1999) - assasination attempt on Harry S. Truman in 1950
Lee Oswald (John F. Kennedy)
Sirhan Sirhan (Robert Kennedy)
Sam Byck, 1974, (Richard M. Nixon) - Byck, an unemployed furniture salesman who hated Nixon and capitalism, and even protested at the White House to impeach him. He had a history of mental illness, investigated by the Secret Service in 1972 after he threatened President Nixon. In July, 1974, he attempts to hi-jack a jetliner with the intent of flying it "as best I can" into the White House to assassinate Nixon. During the attempt, he kills a security officer in the airport, and kills the pilot and co-pilot in the plane while still on the ground. Byck is shot by another officer, then kills himself.

Charles J. Guiteau an insane attorney, "...he turned to the religious doctrines of John Humphrey Noyes, founder of the Oneida Community in New York State in the 1840s, who promulgated a kind of "Bible communism."(Garfield)
Leon Czolgosz "...Around 1900, Leon read more and more of the socialist and anarchist newspapers that were appearing across the country. He started to take an advid interest in the plight of the working man." (McKinley)
These are all LEFTIST nutcases, yeah like there are any other kind.
I disagree that they were all democrats. They do seem to be leftist, though. Oswald shot Kennedy because the president was anti-communist.
That’s just the US - Pim Fortuyn was murdered by an Animal Rights Activist left-wing diptard.
Le Pen of France had an eye kicked out by an angry leftist.
What took you so long, it’s not like I’m easy to conceal.
You are the one I C.C. here in CCW state of Michigan.
That;s the one thing I miss about the north. I can carry it in a Bianci IWB holster down here, but it’s damned uncomfortable. The one time I tried to wear it on the outside, it gave me the idea for a t shirt that said, “Concealed Handgun,” with an arrow pointing to my side.
