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!"

However, there are loony tunes among the anti-Obama crowd too.
The author of this article is named after the islamic anti-christ.
I don't personally believe this, but OTOH Obama has never botherered to provide the documentation showing otherwise.
he certainly has many goals in common with Marx.
Calling him "a Nazi" is over the top, but there are undeniable similarities in style and goals.
This one is indisputable IMO, as shown by his automatic assumption that the cops were to blame in a case of which he admitted he knew nothing.
intent on interning the elderly and euthanising the disabled
Only the ding-dongs have made such claims. What many have said is that this will be the effect of his policies, not that it is his intent.
Ok, so he is not a Nazi. Other than that though....
Somebody censor this foreign falace. Where was he during chants of "Bush lied people died."? Where was he when protesters held posters of Hitlerized Bush? Seems to me it only seems hysterical when the other team is doing it. As is usually the case, the hypocrisy is a condition of amnesia, pretentia, dimensia, stupidity, ignorance and spite.
I hope this author enjoys his crime free life of free health care in the UK. Actually I hope he gets bronchitus. Good luck.
Well, now Mehdi, Irish descent I assume, knows how King George felt.
It’s the Guardian,Pravda’s English language edition.
“...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...”
Far as I can tell, the foreigner part is the only thing that is in question, the rest is well supportable.
And, one must wonder why the loon paid over $1M to keep his origins secret.
Inquiring minds want to know - the MSM doesn’t.
Gee, I wonder if MEHDI HASAN has an agenda?
“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!”
Missed this one...Anyone else catch this in May?
In Maryland, one man went even further, holding up a sign saying: Death to Obama and Death to Michelle and her two stupid kids.
Did that actually happen?
“crowds at Republican rallies shouted “Kill him!”, as well as “Treason!” “Terrorist!” and “Off with his head!”
Not one has been disproved.
Where was this guy during 'snipers wanted?' Are calls to assasinate the president only noticed by the liberal media when a Democrat is president?
Mehdi Hasan - such a nice English name...I wonder what part of Britain his ancestors hail from.
This story was in the news cycle one day and then fell down the memory hole. I want to know who this guy is and what his ideology is.
I’ve really found that leftists don’t pay attention to the planks in their own eyes.
When they were whining about Bush’s “wiretapping” of terrorist phonecalls,
I asked them what they thought of Echelon and Carnivore - 99% hadn’t heard of them.
I don't know, but the original post indicates it did.
I can't see any conservative talking like, but I could could impostors on the left doing this to smear conservatives.
