Multiple Twitter Users Threaten to Assassinate Mitt Romney: ‘Shoot Him Dead’
The Blaze ^ | 8 October 2012 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 10/08/2012 1:43:31 AM PDT by Lexinom

The race to the White House can be ugly and cruel, an inconvenient truth that rears its ugly head in U.S. politics every four years. Unfortunately, there will always be those who reserve pure, unadulterated hatred for anyone they disagree with.

Nothing displays that fact more clearly than the dozens of horrific death threats made against GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney via Twitter, which were uncovered Sunday night. South Carolina attorney Todd Kincannon, who is also the former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party, took notice of the intense hatred coming from the left and directed the threatening messages to the Secret Service and FBI’s official Twitter accounts.

So the lefttards can issue a threat of this nature and all we hear are crickets, but if the roles were reversed, a conservative would already have been visited by the men in black.

Nothing to see here...move along...

The Secret Service needs to investigate this NOW

When people on the right do this, it’s always a credible death threat that must be investigated, and popular conservative politicians or pundits blamed.

When lefties do it, it’s just a joke, or a harmless fictional exercise like that Bush assassination flick that was around a while back.

Move along, folks, there’s a new episode of Dancing with the Stars on tonight, and some new money in your EBT card right from Obama’s stash.

The Soviet Union was a socialist salmon that laid her eggs in America...

...even though the mother died her offspring have thrived in the freedom water of our nation then when a fellow radical Marxist finally became leader their nefarious natures emerged their evil agendas implemented.

Well, there is some logic to the SS ignoring them...not that I think they should be ignored. When a Right Wing type person says something, they can usually be relied on to carry through. A left wing type POS is understood to be full to his skull with BS and looking for attention. I all likelihood they are blowing smoke.

The lesson here is that leftists just talk to impress their friends and stroke their egos. That being the case, one would have to be borderline retarded (in the literal sense) to intentionally elect one.

Of course there are very deadly exceptions. And it’s most often by far the lefty ‘excepting’.

This is the kind of hate and resentment that runs deep in some on the left. It is this resentment that is routinely appealed to and manipulated by democrats running for office. Reverend Wright is just the tip of the iceberg. Years of race baiting by the left has simmered and stirred this pot, and political correctness has prevented us from having the ongoing dialogue that would find solutions and promote and end to racism from either direction.

My biggest assassination concern is for the President. I am actually very worried that someone will take him out. If that happens it will not be a conservative. The assassin will be a hard-core leftist, but will try to make it look like it was a conservative. Watch for this if it happens or if there is an attempt on his life.

The conservatives have no motive to shoot him. After 4 long years of Zippy in the WH, we are finally going to be rid of him on Nov 6. Why would we screw that up now? The left are seeing their dreams collapse, especially after Zippy’s unmasking in the debate.

The left has plenty of motivation. If they can shoot him and make it look like it was done by a conservative, they will immediately turn him into a martyr. They will get lots of sympathy votes for their ticket. The stereotype that conservatives are dangerous, mean, crazy, homicidal gun nuts will be reinforced in the minds of millions of gullible people.

Look for this to happen. I believe it’s in the leftist game plan. Maybe not an assassination, but at least an “attempt.” Or some sort of “accident” that incapacitates him.

Judging from some of the ‘lingo’, I suppose we have Snoop Dog to thank for some inspiration to these gangsta idiots.

And its highly likely that these idiots are the ones that will be too stupid and lazy to get out there and vote.

Not only is it a death threat against a presidential candidate- it’s racist hate speech and should be prosecuted as such.

“The Soviet Union was a socialist salmon that laid her eggs in America......even though the mother died her offspring have thrived in the freedom water of our nation”

Money quote of the day! FWIW I was deployed to a Central Asian republic that was under the USSR for seventy years (Uzbekistan). What they told me there was that everything bad I had ever heard about communism was true, in spades. Especially the midnight arrests & relatives who disappeared.

But for some strange reason these Uzbeks were horrified at the extent of our gun rights, especially handgun ownership. To them, a handgun was solely a tool of authority & there were only two kinds of people; those holding the handgun, and those looking down the barrel.

Teaching them than gun ownership in America was a guarantor of our freedoms rang hollow with them; they believed the old Tass propaganda that all of the U.S. was like Detroit after midnight, with criminal shots ringing out everywhere.

I’m in Canada right now. Nice place (Ottawa) but later today when I cross the bridge back into America, I will kiss the ground of our land of liberty.

Well, it needs to change. And I mean NOW. This needs to be investigated PROMPTLY and thoroughly, with full punishment. I’m tired of it. Their hatred is illogical and has no bounds. I’m not sure federal “punishment” would even stop it, however. Not sure what is going to stop it.

That’s what I meant about the ‘exceptions’.

Most leftists are indeed all talk. The net is filled with leftist threats that are empty posturing. But it is true that the vast majority to the 99th percentile of actual incidents of violence are the acts of the left.

All I was getting at is that they are mostly ‘talk’, whereas a Right winger is opt to follow up on whatever he says.
