Maurice Sendak Said Killing Bush Would Have Been 'Wonderful'

Maurice Sendak Said Killing Bush Would Have Been 'Wonderful'

Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak may have been even wilder than his "wild things."

In one of the children's book author's last interviews before he died of a stroke in May, Sendak said he thought about trying to assassinate former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney.

"Bush was president, I thought, 'Be brave. Tie a bomb to your shirt. Insist on going to the White House. And I want to have a big hug with the vice president, definitely. And his wife, and the president, and his wife, and anybody else that can fit into the love hug,'" Sendak told The Comics Journal's founder Gary Groth in an interview that will be published in the magazine's next edition.

"And then we'll blow ourselves up, and I'd be a hero," Sendak continued.

"It would have been a very brave and wonderful thing," said Sendak, who wrote the whimsical "Where the Wild Things Are."

Sendak has had his share of unorthodox comments, although none perhaps as violent as pondering a presidential assassination.

He called former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich "an idiot of great renown."

"There is something so hopelessly gross and vile about him that it's hard to take him seriously," Sendak told comedian Stephen Colbert in January.

And in 2008, shortly after his 80 th birthday, Sendak told the New York Times, "I hate people," adding that he would rather spend time with his dog Herman.

>>”There is something so hopelessly gross and vile about him<<

Sheer projection (which is all libtards have).

I hope he died in agony.

Must be the estate managers plan to issue posthumous editions of his works.

At least Newt could write books at the adult level for adults to read.

A liberal's idea of intellectualism is to kill, or express their wet dreams of murdering, anybody with whom they disagree.

Childish rants by children's book "authors" fail to impress me.

Like all libtards: A hater till the end. Sendak mentioned in a September 2008 article in The New York Times that he was gay and had lived with his partner, psychoanalyst Dr. Eugene Glynn, for 50 years before Glynn’s death in May 2007. Sendak died in the morning of May 8, 2012, in Danbury, Connecticut, from complications of a stroke. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!

“Is the name Maurice Sendak supposed to mean something to me?”

Probably not. But like that great children’s storyteller before him, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss”, Maurice was a notorious lefty, and unable to think outside that box he had voluntarily set around himself. This is a disease of living in a highly cloistered neighborhood, where nobody even KNEW anybody who may have been Republican, let alone a principled one.

But be assured that the “red diaper baby” syndrome leaves a lifelong impression.

It’s not surprising that Obama is so out front about his pro-gay sentiments, is it? I have to wonder if the man is a closet gay and if Moochelle and the girls are just cover for Obama’s ‘keeping it on the downlow’.

Sendak was a piece of garbage. Just because a person has a particular talent does not have anything to do with them being a decent human being.

I think Ex President is under protection of your law, and wishing death on someone is evil.

I believe you should contact your Government and he should be arrested for threatening life of Ex President.

Merci.

We had all of his books, bought when they first came out, and read them to our kids. Everyone enjoyed them greatly.

His books are certainly eccentric, but I never scented anything evil in them, and I still don’t.

Maybe some of this is just senile dementia. And maybe some of it is stupid lib talk. He may have talked about strapping on bombs, but I doubt whether he ever seriously intended to do it. Sure, you shouldn’t talk like that about the POTUS, but plenty of libs have bad habits.

True. NC man gets 20 years for threatening ex-president

Sendak died last month. But maybe somebody knows more about the law -- the line (if any) between actual threats and wishing that something had happened.

I see, I didn’t know he was dead, well he is dead ex President is still living.

I think he got his wish on himself then. Still, wishing death on someone you disagree is just evil.

I will use your words friend - {But maybe somebody knows more about the law — the line (if any) between actual threats and wishing that something had happened.}

Law experts will know this better.

If the Wikipedia is half right, sounds like he grew up in a dysfunctional extended family, always at each others’ throats figuratively speaking. And he forever bore a grudge. It would turn any ordinary liberal into a raving moonbat.

I’ve never read anything by Sendak, so I guess I don’t mourn his passing much. I would bet that a very large percentage of liberal “artist-writers,” like Sendak, love humanity but hate people. Just another example of a thoroughly unhinged liberal.
