Skip to comments.Mad, bad and dangerous to know-Conservatives in America playing with fire, inciting violence

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.
Wasn’t England where they showed the movie of Bush being assassinated in “Death of a President”?
I mean, really, “Guardian” ...
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.
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.
Oh for heaven’s sake. No one made this claim when the left what hanging Bush in effigy and calling him Hitler. What a crock of BS.
Never saw anything like that, but these people don't deal in facts, just in exciting emotions.
Like the guy with the sign about offing the first family. Never heard who he was or anything else. He CONVIENTLY wasn't arrested or questioned, so my guess was he was a plant for a photo-op so the MSM could claim the right-wing conspiracy was turning violent.
Let’s not forget the paper is English, that the English heard complaints from here before and misunderstood the serious nature of said complaints, that the English are now led by appeasers, not a Churchillian leader, and - most important of all - the are subjects while we are citizens.
Yeah, they (the libs) are so willing to spout off and ‘claim’ certain things but never provide proof. And have you noticed, everything they accuse us of, they actually do?
“the are subjects” should be they are subjects.
And if this writer had any understanding of political behavior in the US today, his first suspicion would be that those signs were being carried by leftists, knowing our in-the-tank media would blame it on conservatives without a single question entering their mushy little heads.
As for being a Marxist, and racist, his history makes it clear that he is those things and others besides.
Yes. It's called projectionism...and its one of their favorite tools.
I thought they portrayed it happening in Canada...I may be wrong...
But then again I have not seen the film...Not that I want to...
