Conservatives in America are playing with fire by inciting violence against the country's first black president
"Does the sun ever shine during a Democratic administration?" asked Jon Stewart on a recent edition of The Daily Show, in a nod to the rightwing hysteria over the current White House incumbent. "With Obama in office now, when babies laugh do you hear only the sound of kittens drowning?"
Stewart is a comedian, but this is no laughing matter. The lies perpetrated against Obama that he is a foreigner, a Marxist, a Nazi, a racist, intent on interning the elderly and euthanising the disabled and the ensuing hatred and virulence, have reached fever pitch.
I could only rub my eyes in disbelief when I saw footage of one protester standing outside an Obama town hall meeting in New Hampshire with a loaded handgun strapped to his leg, holding a placard proclaiming: "It is time to water the tree of liberty," in reference to the Thomas Jefferson quote "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots." In Maryland, one man went even further, holding up a sign saying: "Death to Obama" and "Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids".
This militant, rightwing craziness comes on the back of the now-infamous ad published in a Pennsylvania newspaper in May, calling for Obama to be assassinated and, of course, in the wake of a presidential election campaign in which crowds at Republican rallies shouted "Kill him!", as well as "Treason!" "Terrorist!" and "Off with his head!"

We hear the sounds of the global economy dying at the hand of socialism. Just like England. Remember? The sun used to never set.... Nowadays, a second class museum of failure and mediocrity.
The Guardian is somewhere significantly to the left of The Peoples’ Daily Worker.
Another blind bigot gives his opinion. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Mehdi Hasan is senior editor (politics) at the New Statesman and a former news and current affairs editor at Channel 4. His New Statesman blog is here.
The Obamessiah may or may not be a “foreigner”, but anyone at this point who refuses to recognize that he is clearly both a racist and a national socialist is either on-board with his “programs” or is simply too stupid to think their way out of a wet paper sack.
how did you all like the little show by Howard Dean yesterday....they let a handful of demonstrater in with a bunch of liberal to get tv footage of demonstrators. the video shows is law abiding citizens(acorn and union,obama’s army) having thier meeting disrupted....I wish someone besides the abortionist had stood up. there is a 5050 split on that subject...a complaint about spending, health care, or the constitution would have been so much better press.
The sign carrying union imposters fooled this guy. The left’s tactics are working.
Man, what cryo-cube were all these jagoffs sequestered in for the past eight years? Because only a comatose sleep could excuse such ignorance.
> Republicans should beware. They are playing with fire.
That’s odd. I thought it was called the First Amendment.
They’re letting him have it in the comments section.
[In Maryland, one man went even further, holding up a sign saying: Death to Obama and Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids.]
Maybe he simply thought Obama was a Republican.
I should have realized it was a towelhead.
Hey Guardian...... you lost the war!! Piss off!
I have heard no conservative inciting violence at Obozo. That is what muslims do, kind of like the writer of this drivel would do if someone made a cartoon of Big Mo.
Being angry and disageeing with America becoming communist is not inciting violence.
The UK is submitting to those who are taking their freedom.
At least we are fighting it.
