NEW YORK In a lenghty account of a Sarah Palin rally in Scranton, Pa. today, the local paper, the Times-Tribune, relates that at 1:25 p.m. just before she arrived, a candidate for Congress stepped on stage: "Chris Hackett addressed the increasingly feisty crowd as they await the arrival of Gov. Palin.

"Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama the crowd booed loudly.

"One man screamed "kill him!'"

Yes no doubt about that. The first time... maybe a wacko. But if this is repeated over and over again, it reeks of Democrat agent provocateur.

No need to “think” — they are all “acorn plants” and they have been doing/planning this for a while.

Well duh. Liberals are the ones that will cross any line and go to any length to get what they want. The end justifies their means--every time.

If they didn’t plant the first one (and it is in serious question whether there ever was a first one at all), they will certainly plant them now since they were able to use it to such advantage.

Oh yes, a plant in the crowd. They want to portray us as war mongering thugs, and yet I keep seeing McCain/Palin signs tore up and on fire. And Obama supporters wearing Palin is a c&&t t-shirts and banging people’s heads into walls. Hmmm, why can’t logic apply here?

Sounds like a liberal agent provocateur.

Maybe a verbal disclaimer is in order: “We are NOT responsible for screams of ‘KILL HIM’, etc...not is it condoned.”

“Scranton Paper: Another Cry of ‘Kill him!’ at Palin Rally”

McCain needs to start the next full rallies instructing those in
the crowd to act like Flight 93 and detain (without lasting injury)
any person shouting threats of violence, against any candidate.
So as to turn them over to the kindly ministrations of The Secret Service.

And to grab the cup, program, banner they are holding for fingerprint
and DNA forensics.

I looked at the rest of the story:

The report continued: "Supporters have been noted shouting 'kill him,' 'terrorist,' 'off with his head' and other equally incendiary terms about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Others have directly suggested Mr. Obama is a Muslim, which he is not, or a traitor.

Funny, this "news" outlet believes Obamie is not a muslim, but it doesn't give it's opinion on whether he is a traitor or not. Now I don't know what to think! /sarc

Someone needs to make a new version of the old Sam Wyche bit from NFL Films:

“If anyone hears anyone saying that Senator Obama should be killed, point them out... You're not a bunch of liberals, you're Republicans!”

(The “you don't live in Cleveland, you live in Cincinnati” rant...)

From what I have heard on radio from folks who were there, and closeby, the first man who yelled it, was referring to Ayers, NOT the O. That spun by the media, invited liberals to enter rallies and create more instances. And the woman who said “he's an Arab”, in addition to being not very bright, Bless her heart, was also a plant.

Another Cry of 'Kill him!' at Palin Rally

If anyone is at a rally and hears one of these freaks, immediately corner him and call over the cops. That is a threat and shouldn't be tolerated. More importantly, I want some of these freaks names posted. I will bet you a big donation to FR that the freaks calling this out are Obama plants.

If Palin heard she I'm sure she would stop her speech and say that "this is not the way Americans conduct themselves" and have the Secret Service escort the person away.

You’re “just beginning” to suspect it?

I think the folks in the crowd should apprehend this person or persons, and let the authorities have him to investigate.

In fact, I think it behoove Gov. Palin to ask for that. I’d bet my entire retirement account that those remarks would stop immediately.

This is a classic liberal/leftist practice...

Use one of there own, when they cannot be identified accordingly, to do or say something that would be considered despicable by the general public and then play that fraudulent manufactured incident against their opponent to their advantage.

I heard Tammy Bruce on some show being interviewed about just this sort of thing. Tammy is former Pres of LA chapter of NOW. She said they would routinely do this - “plant” an operative at rallies to disrupt.

The same old liberal playbook is getting tiresome. Isn’t it interesting that the unbiased media is now suddenly outraged. Useful idiots, all of them.

Oh, and these goofballs in the media expect us to believe that the unknown screamer in Scranton used the exact phrase the other screamers used.

“Kill Him?” It doesn’t even make sense. And who would yell that out that exact phrase knowing the beating we’ve been taking on the issue this week?

There should be a bounty on anyone wishing violence against Senator Obama out loud at a rally. Report them to the Secret Service (and they’re there at every event) so we can find out who these boneheads are and who put them up to doing something so stupid...

There’s lots of other nasty, but true, things you can say without playing into the media’s hands.

Oh, and now we’re going to hold Sarah responsible for what happens before she even gets to the venue?

I wonder what we would hear from the crowd if we went to an Obama rally. I wish someone would, with their video camera, then report back, to FOX news.

Joe the plumber was on FOX, twice today. He has made a major hit. And its funny because he didn’t intend it, he was just in the right place at the right time. I love it:)
