At the top of the 4:00PM ET hour on MSNBC Friday, fill-in co-anchor Monica Novotny issued a dire warning about protests at health care town hall meetings: "The town hall confrontations are turning violent....Where is all of this heading? New fears for the safety of America’s first African-American president."

The violent attacks have come from Obama’s astroturf supporters in the unions.

Point of fact to state directed Media. All arrest for violence at Town Halls have been pro Obamites arrested for attacking peaceful protesters.

Post 9/11, per Hillary Clinton, dissent was ‘patriotic’ now its racist. And ‘scary.’

These people are irresponsible lunatics! Why anyone watches this pathetic excuse for a news network is beyond me.

It’s time to protest, friends, before we lose all our freedom!

They weren’t violent until the dimocRATS sent in the union thugs and their ACORN allies. I’m waiting for the dimocRATS to announce they will hold their town hall meetings in the union halls complete with union thugs.

Typical of the leftist tool MSNBC. Comment on the violence but refuse to ack that it is dimRATs who are voilent.

Thankfully, no one watches.

I can guarantee you that he is probably safer then Bush because no thinking conservative would want anything to happen to him and have him become a martyr. MSNBC should be taken off the air for the liars they are.

You are so right about the union thugs but MSNBC is scum all the way.

What’s more of a threat to your life - someone disagreeing with you in a public meeting, or Keith Olbermann performing fellatio on you every single minute of the day?

This is totally absurd! Disagreements about policy are not a threat to Obama’s life! What has become of this country? Who are these idiots at MSNBC? They’re certainly not a news network.

Who is having these new fears? Cris matthews? Keith baby? Katie Colic? Gibson? Harry? Code Pink? American communist pary? pelosi? reid? dodd? durbin? waxman? conyers? WHO?

I'm not having any fears, I am simply waiting for that blue lipped wonder to find a microphone and call off the union thugs he emailed into overt action at town hall meetings. We have seen the email...but we have not seen our president CALL OFF HIS HOUNDS.

Seems to me when Bush was president there were plenty of people (mostly on leftist blogs) who wanted to see him dead. Hillary her self told us that as Americans we had a right to protest against any administration. Now it’s not so American to protest.... hmmmm what’s wrong with this picture?

But it was OK with the MSM that Cindy Sheehan and her ilk skulked around Bush’s personal ranch in Texas. No, THEY were righteous, 1st Amendment peace warriors.

Sheesh.

Seriously, though, my fear is that this kind of rhetoric is laying the ground work to justify future violence or arrests.

ROTFLMAO? Life as POTUS for Obama as he once knew it, for about 200 days, is over. Get use to it Zero and keep playing that race card, Hillary loves it and she will be making her exit soon as the White House collapses on your stupid community organizer head.

Where is that damn video of Hillary screeching she is tired of being called unpatriotic for disagreeing with this administration. We need to be playing this all the time, seriously all the time.

Why isnt Rush, Hannity, Mark, Drudge, RNC, etc. using this. Its powerful, I think.

If Obama’s press is saying this kind of ridiculous stuff now, they were ‘ordered’ to by Obama himself. That’s what we need to remember here. There are no ‘accidents’ at NBC anymore. They are the OFFICIAL OBAMA MEDIA.

God help us. Pray for our country, because Obama has big plans to rip this country apart.

Suppose, for a moment, that there exists a Vast Left Wing Conspiracy to assert dominance over this country. And suppose, further, that this conspiracy has been using Barack Obama to advance their cause.

Now, of course, the bloom is off the rose. The people have united against Barack Obama, so he will no longer be able to carry the ball. He has done well in his six months, but it is time for fresh legs.

But there is one last service that Barack Obama can perform...

Of course, the important thing is to make sure the right people get blamed. So you plant stories in the media about how the opponents of the President are dangerously unhinged, and a threat to his life.

Which brings us up to this afternoon...

Obama has double insurance. Joe “Gaffe-o-matic” Biden as VP and Nancy “Nazi” Pelosi as House Speaker.

Raise your hand if you want either as POTUS. Me neither.
