Flashback: Obama: ‘If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun’ (the REAL Arizona instigator)
WSJ ^ | 6/14/2008 | Amy Chozick

Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight. But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

That’s exactly what Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Glenn Beck has repeatedly shown video clips of Leftists advocating violence and control through “the barrel of gun”. I’m sure he’ll replay the videos throughout the week.

I don’t joke about 2 things: the Mob and using weapons against people.

Call me melodramatic, but I grew up in Mob country, and I would prefer to keep a low profile around them. Hearing “Make them an offer they can’t refuse “ makes me cringe a little in my subconscious. You don’t have to be a wussy, but poking the bear for no good reason can be dangerous.

And the weapon thing should be obvious...they aren’t a joking matter. If somebody needs killin’ (intruder, etc.) it’s one thing, but if somebody won’t change the channel on the TV, saying “I’ll shoot you” is poor taste.

YMMV, IMHO, etc

Not much of a Bill O’Reilly fan, but during his upcoming SuperBowl Obama interview, he would do the nation big a favor if he brought up the Double Standard in political speech in this country, ( which can be amply and exhaustively demonstrated)

“Obama is a stupid fool.”

True but a dangerous one. I don't wish him ill. As a Christian I can't. I just want him legally out of office, out of the public eye and to quickly fade from history.

Of course, it is orchestrated. Commies always have been controlling dialogue and most of the media in this country for decades. It is worse with the fascist Zero and Holder at the helm. Crooks and Commies and they can throw enemies in the dumpster, so good people know they can just be picked off by their goons at will. Every conservative patriot is in mortal danger and they better get some good security.

Zero wants a revolution so they can take total control...they are so close to their goal they smell blood.

Just wait until the talk shows tomorrow morning. There will be lots of hand-wringing over “hateful rhetoric” and faux concern over criticism of Obama, health care, etc. Not a mention of the perp’s leftist leanings nor the simple fact that he's an absolute lunatic. I'm waiting for Bob Schieffer to break down in tears.

I think I'll watch football instead. More substance and a lot less hypocrisy.

You can be assured that the MSM won’t mention, or try to cover up that this crazy man who shot those people in Arizona was a leftist lefty who admired Marx and Marxism.

How about the people that Obama associates himself with? Didn’t Bill and Bernadine also babysit Obama’s kids?

...

Bill Ayers (1968): “Kill all the rich people! Break up their cars and apartments! Bring the revolution home, kill your parents - that’s where it’s really at!”

1969 - Ayers attempted to extort money ($20,000) from the Vietnam Moratorium Committee. When a member of the Moratorium group asked Bill Ayers what he really wanted, “To kill all rich people,” Ayers responded. When another peace activist pointed out that Ayers himself came from wealth, he answered: “Bring the war home. Kill your parents.”

1969 (December 27 to 31) – Weathermen hold a “War Council” meeting in Flint, MI. Bernardine Dohrn comments about the Charles Manson-led “Sharon Tate - LaBianca Murders” “Dig It! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, and then they put a fork in pig Tate’s belly! Wild!

Brawl? You don’t take knives or guns to a brawl. A brawl is punching and kicking. It’s fisticuffs. When the stabbing and shooting starts it becomes something else entirely.

It becomes modern politics, I guess.

Obama also said something about “boots on the neck,” too. I knew it would take a millisecond for the Left to spin this awful tragedy and tie it to conservatives. Might be good to compile a list of the liberals’ hateful rhetoric that is filled with gun imagery and metaphors. Just whip it out when folks like your brother even SUGGEST that these killings are associated with this country’s conservatives.
