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.

I’ve got some doubts about this article. At the end it says that “Dante Jamar Sims, 21” threatened Obama. Is that a typo?

Who’s to say that these threats aren’t originating from the Chicago/Obama campaign?? This may be the only way the chair can win.....eliminate your opponents by any means necessary.

PRAY for the protection and guidance of Romney and Ryan.

Eventually, it will become so common that they will stop investigating threats against Republicans.

The typical response of the totalitarians, kill the opposition candidates. Joe Stalin, head of that glorious socialist empire from 1924 to 1953, murdered millions. Of 1966 delegates to one party congress, stalin had 1108—all stalin supporters—arrested and killed. Of the 139 central committee members, 98 were shot. IN spite of these historical facts, the nation worshiped stalin. He made himself a god. Every public park (like TV today) displayed his statue. Every newspaper published lavish tributes daily (like same today). For one of his birthdays, an entire museum in Moscow was stripped so it could be filled with his birthday presents. He was called father of the peoples, the greatest genius in history, the shining sun of humanity, the life-giving force of socialism. These are precisely the historical facts.

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’.

A lions share of the last few sucessful Presidential assasinations have been by left wingers, McKinely, J Kennedy, R Kennedy, etc...

I would say ANY threat by left wingers should be invesigated with mucho gusto.

I find it funny they all considered themselves atheists, because they threw out the invisible infailiable guy in the sky who stands as a benchmark for what we should strive for in exchange for a flawed evil shyplitic with delusions of grandeur as their “man-god”.

What’s with the dumbazz hoodlum hand signals? Are they shooting at each other, calling each other losers, saying we be stickin’ up da crackers... what? Looks like thugs in third world thugville, gangstas exchanging stoopid codes because they are sofa king we todd did.

Our White House has been violated.

Obama wants to show himself hip-hop rap stylin’ so he can gain street cred with these folks.

Remember, he wrote himself that he always associated with radicals, Marxists, etc. to achieve a political agenda.

To function like a low-life gangsta’ is an embarrassment to the office of the Presidency and a joke to every civilized nation. Not that you didn’t already know that.

Obama is the Jerry Springer Presidency. And a sad statement on America.

Didn't Herman Cain and others start getting death threats once they were winning a couple debates? Romney should go all Robo-cop, full armor next debate and suggest to Obama to control his immoral fan base.

They sure aren't a political base, they worship him, delete God, Jerusalem, all that's holy or was because he's like, like he's the messiah....that steals food and health care from orphans and the poor and redistributes it to solar energy and algae companies.

Meanwhile, any news on Benghazi, the deficit numbers, unemployment, health care prices, more taxation and sucking gasoline in California playing the refinery game. So dagumed much is wrong with this guy and I'm the one tagged as a baddy by Homerland security because I( we) frequent conservative web sites?

Let’s hope those making the threats left enough of an electronic trail to trace.

These threats are violations of federal law and should be tracked down ASAP. However, with Holder in charge of DOJ, I’m sure he’s going to issue the order very soon, say, about Jan. 21, 2013.

Re Spike Lee’s comment. I didn’t know he was a butthole surfer? Guess he’s gonna make a movie about his life, entitled “Bend Over Darling”, or a remake of “Lean on Me”.

Samuel L. Jackson, a big disappointment as a person. Didn’t his mother teach him better? I’m sure she did.

Leftist assassins.

Lee Harvey Oswald.
The Manson Family (No supporters of real Family Values here).
Squeaky Fromm.

Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, Ted Gold, Diana Oughton, Ted Robbins, the Brinks truck robbery killers, David Fine, Armstrong (died, good), other Weathermen; Republic of New Africa marxist/black separatist cop-killers (assassinated policemen); Black Panther Party cop-killers.

Black Panthers also killed fellow Black Panthers as part of internal struggles or those they suspected of being police informers (Alex Rackley case, New Haven, the case the Hillary Clinton worked on for the defense via a Communist Party USA law firm -McTernan, Burstein, Charles R. Gary, Treuhaft).

Leonard Peltier, AIM, helped kill two FBI agents in an ambush.

Maxine Chesimard, Tupac’s mother. Cop-killer. Now living “la vida loco” in Havana.

John Hinckley - not a liberal, my friends

Very few rightwing assassins. James Earl Ray is probably the leading candidate but he was a racist.

Misc. Assassins:
Daoud: Black Muslim assassing of Iranian exile Ali Tabatabai. Now a movie star in Iran.

Other Black Muslims or Iranians: Assassinated Israel Military Attache Col. Allon.

Black Muslims killed other Black Muslim leaders, including Malcolm X. Calypso Louie was said to be behind this last one.

Several Libyan assassins and PLO assassins operated in the US in the 1970’s and 80’s. PLO assassins killed at least two Palestinian youth in the US.

See: Clarie Sterling’s “The Terror Network” for a very good overview of the PLO and Soviet terrorism networks in the 1970’s. Carlos the Jackal - communist psychopath son of the leader of the Communist Party of Venezuela. Killed two French policemen and an informant at one time. Plus his multiple deadly bombings.

Don’t forget the marxist Puerto Rican terrorists, the FALN - Fraunces Tavern bombing that killed 6 people. Also the bank robberies/killings by MIRA in the US and the ambush killing of US sailors in Puerto Rico. Plus lots of bombings.

Al Qaeda: Reportedly the man who killed Rabbi Meir Kahane (in NYC) was an Al Qaeda assassin. This was supposedly the first Al Qaeda terrorist operation in the U.S.

The Blind Sheik and his World Trade Center bombers. Bin Laden and his WTC suicide bombers.

I think you get the idea.

There have been NO conservative suicide bombers in the US or elsewhere that I know of.

Hope the above is useful.

Get ready and be prepared for yet another four to eight years of this kind of hate-spew and threats of violence, along with the violence they choose to actually carry out.

And suddenly, military deaths will be come “relevant” and “vitriolic-protest-worthy” again....

like magic.

All it takes is a change of letter behind the name of the CIC.
