Obama assasination plot

It was bound to happen.

And, still, Palin was out on the stump again today, stirring up hatred, using her racist "code" words, and the crowd was in it's usual hate frenzy shouting hate, which she didn't try to calm down. I think she gets a special thrill out of stirring up hatred.

What's worse about this situation is that there was a plot to kill 102 MORE BLACK people. 102 more, and there is NO mention of how wrong that is?

And like BB said, the McCain & Palin were all about calling and "comforting" the "poor white woman attacked by the big scary black man"....but have NOTHING to say when it is the other way around and on a MUCH larger scale. Without speaking about it, it is almost like they condone it.(Kinda like when Bush "condoned" the actions of those attacking the Dixie Chicks several years ago)

I'm appalled by the plans to assassinate Obama it makes me sick and very sad that in this day and age, people are still that stupid. But I do think with or without McCain & Palin, these crazies would have tried something anyways. White supremacists don't need anyone to get them riled up, they already have their agenda.

You know, Amanda, you really need to get over your unconditional love for McCain/Palin. They should have acknowledged and condemned this immediately. You, once again, sticking up for them makes you sound a bigot too. You say you're appalled but come farkin' on!

She did not say you were a bigot for not voting for Obama! She SAID... that you SOUND like a bigot for taking up For McCain/Palin when they have said nothing about this assassination attempt on Obama's life. Silence says more than words, sometimes. Silence means "Hey, it's ok...." Silence where there should be condemnation. When you are silent, you are standing behind an action, not against it. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that's what cheeky was basically saying.


Also, earlier when you said:
Yep, because when white people get together, that's all we do is incite hatred towards black people.
That was totally out of line. You KNOW that is not what Scrappy was saying. Come ON.

When you're confronted with a group as described, it's your duty to speak sensibly and responsibly as to not encourage that behavior. It's certainly your duty to speak against it when an act has been committed... so there you go. McCain/Palin down by 2 points!

I said that it was fair to question someone's stance when they stand in front of a crowd stating things that play upon someone's fear and when you talk about someone as being different and meaning that its bad to be different and you do NOTHING when the crowd shouts "kill him" "treason".

Even yesterday, when the news was out about the potential attack on Obama and 102 other black people (14 of which were to be decapitated) she was speaking in front of a crowd when someone from the crowd yells "he's a n*****r". She does NOTHING!!!! She stumbles over her words, but says nothing about it. The video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9T0FI2axbU

She does NOTHING to stop it. Why didn't she say anything??? She's shot back at hecklers before (see video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6U8shdAi4Kw&NR=1) Why not now? Maybe because Iowa has a black population of only 2.5% and a white population of 94.6% http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/19000.html ? I don't know, maybe, maybe not.

No matter what, it was wrong. Instead of telling us what positive changes they will do for us, they are filling us with fear.

So what does this have to do with McCain/Palin?... This is the tool that they've been using to create fear in the hearts of people regarding an Obama administration. Maybe it didn't work on you... but it damn sure worked on those crazies and on those who prefer not to think, but rather be told what to think. And we know there are a lot of those people out there. McCain/Palin should have used their power more responsibly rather than create a rift in our country.

I have to say I have such a hard time listening to her and I think I figured it out - her speech cadence is off. (Is that the proper use of that word??-I think it is but want to make sure) Her speech does not flow - it's hard for me to pay attention.

Rachel Maddow did a few segments of her show on this...called it "What did she say? Does anyone speak Palin?"
