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 FBIs official Twitter accounts.

Oh, I misunderstood, he was FORWARDING them!
get murderous over the idea of banning tampons?
We are seeing hypocracy coming from the left in full bloom.
The two losers in this picture are such losers that they can’t even do the loser symbol correctly.
My reaction exactly!! Not just spell it, but know it and use it!
No, Todd Kincannon is the attorney retweeting these posts and CC’ing the Secret Service. He’s one of the good guys.
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.
Nobody’s banning tampons....how dumb....where do these stupid rumors start??
The real racists. The anti white man crowd.
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.
I have no clue how something that stupid starts, from stupid people I guess
“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.
They have no idea how “Civil” it can get if they keep this up.
The Secret Service pays a visit to an old man who hangs a chair in a tree, but ignores this? Give me a break.
Just another reason why I really hate Twitter.
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...
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.
