FIRST, YOU DEHUMANIZE THE PRESIDENT BY CALLING HIM AN "ENEMY OF HUMANITY,"

and proclaim that HE HAS NO PLACE IN ANY STATION OF GOVERNMENT, then it's easy to incite enraged, fearful nutjobs to commit a heinous act to get rid of "THE ENEMY OF HUMANITY" thereby becoming a hero to the unhinged. 


"Obama's first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers' money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries," said Frank. "Now, I got to tell you, if a president will do that, there's almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn't be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can't do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity."

Rep. Trent Franks R-AZ

I wonder if Jesus likes the Yankees now?
He surly didn't like the Red Sox!

Jesus has compassion, and apparently felt sorry for the Yankees and the fact that more people love the Sox.

Wait'll next year.

John Perry of Newsmax.com thinks: There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.”

Attention, right wing: If war is what you want, then war is what you’ll get. Its pushback time, and don’t say I didn’t warn you!!!

Jim said...

War? Are you kidding me? From the wacko left a war threat? Really? How does that square with your anti-war, turn tale since Vietnam attitude?

Man, where is Cindy Sheehan when you need her. ;-)

Are you kidding me?

NO, I AM NOT KIDDING YOU. EXPECT A VERY NASTY BACKLASH!

Jim said...

OK then. From the sports world:

BRING IT ON!

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!

Ya gotta love all CAPS! ;-)

Trent Franks has a right to disagree with the President, but what he said was way out of line. These Repubicans are getting more disrespectful by the day. It's part of the effort to delegitimize Mr. Obama's Presidency.

(O)CT(O)PUS that story is complete BS. It was the prior administration that trampled the Constitution, and nobody did a damn thing about it. The military leadership isn't all Republican. They don't voice their political opinions while serving, which is why we had all those Generals who waited until they retired before criticizing the bush administration.

This is treason Mr. Perry is talking about, and it isn't going to happen.

I Googled "Prize winning" author John L. Perry and found the following... "Newsmax's John L. Perry is either nuts, a naïve fool, or a childish attention-seeker. His latest column speculating on the possibility of a U.S. military coup to unseat President Obama fails the most basic B.S. test". That sounds accurate to me.

Perry...what a nutcase...

Lets see Eric Shensiki wanted a half million troops to do Iraq the right way and the prior administrattion shot him down and then went on and publically humiliated him...and the military did nothing.

I would love to see how Perry would deal with the concepts of 'leader of the free world' and 'spreading democracy' the day AFTER his little 'peaceful coup?'

He would be very unhappy to find out that the Pentagon absolutely hated Rumsfield and did nothing other than vote....

"There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America�s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the �Obama problem.� Don�t dismiss it as unrealistic."--John Perry

There is no "Obama problem." Rather there is a Rightwing Treason Problem. Mr. Obama is not breaking any laws, whereas certain extreme elements on the Right are increasingly inciting treason.

John Perry is one of them.


"America isn�t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized." --JP

This statement alone is proof that Perry is a raging lunatic.

And a traitor to the United States of America.

We have people, some as individuals, some as part of loosely organized groups, and others belonging to a major political party personally attacking President Bush.

Not his policies, but him personally and even the legitimacy of his presidency.

We have seen the truthers. We have seen the Hitler photos. We have heard the words of elected representatives.

And nowhere have we seen the voices of moderation in the Democratic party stand up and publicly repudiate these types of statements.

Nowhere have we seen the Democrat leadership take a stand against this type of behavior similar to what they expected from the moderate leaders of Islam.

I think it safe to assume, following their logic vis-à-vis Islam, that they in fact agree with people like the truthers, Rep Stark, Sen Reid, and the Facebook people.

Gordon said...

And you found one lonely Facebook group with few members advocating violence against President Obama. Facebook took down the group immediately.

Yet as of yesterday, there were at least four Facebook pages advocating killing President Bush, some with hundreds of members.

You folks really need to get a grip.

dmarks said...

Thanks for the research, Gordon.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Report those pages to Facebook at once.

Nevermind. I'll do it myself.

Just because you found those pages advocating murder against Bush, it doesn't mean we think it's peachy.

Apparently a liberal blogger found the recent one about Mr. Obama and reported it immediately.

Conservatives must do the same. If enough of us continue to condemn and complain about this madness, perhaps we can get back to attacking political opponents' policies instead of advocating their murders.

'Back to' presupposes that once upon a time the nation engaged in civil political discourse.

Which just ain't so.

The history of conservative politics in this country is one of endless smears and personal attacks on their political opponents. Every progressive movement the country has ever produced has been labelled un-American, un-patriotic and its adherents libeled, slandered and often murdered.

There's no 'back' to which we can go.
