Erica Jong Tells Italians Obama Loss 'Will Spark the Second American Civil War'
observer.com ^ | October 30, 2008 | Jason Horowitz

Blood Will Run in the Streets'--

It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious.

A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog. Basically, Jong says she her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an "obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that keeps you awake at night." She also says that her friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf are extremely worried that Obama will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks, and that if an Obama loss indeed comes to pass, the result will be a second American Civil War.

Here's a translation of Jong's more spirited quotes to the Milan-based Corriere, as selected by Rocca.

"The record shows that voting machines in America are rigged."

“will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks”

It’s the Rovian tactic of making Joe Biden open his mouth. Rove had this control over John Kerry too.

That war has already begun. The question is whether or not it will go hot.

Obama loses - the Left riots? The MSM told them the election was in the bag for the One. Since the polls said so!

I love predictions of violence if Obama loses. Nothing makes me want to vote McCain-Palin any more than that. I hate having a gun held to my head. It just ticks me off.

Or maybe people just don't want this socialist nobody to be the President? Nah, not possible, must have been a conspiracy.

I haven’t heard a lot of Dems threaten to move this election cycle.

FTA:

“....Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can’t cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves....”

Well, then, that’s a bonus, I guess. You made my day, Erica.

"If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it's not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets."

sigh.......

No, he will fire up the Weather Machine and drown them.

Actually I think that CWII could occur either way. If he wins and tries to rewrite the constitution he could well spark a conflict. Either way, like the first CW secession would not be allowed; that issue was settled in 1865.

Obama makes RACIST jokes on THE DAILY SHOW

http://www.breitbart.tv/?p=208883

I dont give a DAMN what anyone else thinks, these comments that his WHITE HALF WONT KNOW WHAT TO DO IN THE VOTING BOOTH is a RACIST JOKE, a CLEARLY RACIST COMMENT that if ANY white Republican said in any form would be murdered on the street by the first offended person he saw.

This is RACIST, OFFENSIVE, and just more icing on the cake of his racism (20 YEARS IN WRIGHT’S CHURCH)

That’s what I asked? That hag’s still alive? What a beast!!! Her “friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf?” Good grief! I would not admit to those two as friends!!

“Republican dirty tricks?” How can bringing up the truth about the Zero be a dirty trick? What ever happened to disclosure, information instead of disinformation or shutting out of the facts.

If one watches MSM and reads newspapers in this country they will never know what is truly going on re the Zero and his cohorts.
