Jus’ Exercising His First Amendment Rights

So you want exercise your First Amendment rights then, do you? One of the things many of us spread out over the political spectrum understand is the responsibility that comes with the freedom to express ourselves.

I don’t remember calling for the death of George Bush and surely never involved his family in the criticisms I had with the Bush administration. I surely couldn’t stand George, but I’m not one for wishing death to anyone – although Dick Cheney will, most likely, always give me pause. ;)

Who are these people that think this is OK? Seriously?

From TPM and David Dishneau at the AP

A man who held a sign reading Death To Obama, Death To Michelle And Her Two Stupid Kids‘ at a town hall in Maryland yesterday has been detained by the Secret Service, according to the AP.

  1. There’s a reason these morons are commonly referred to as “nutters”.

  2. Who are these people? They’re the right-wing equivalent of all the left-wingers who did the same thing to Bush. In a few weird cases, they’re actually the same people apparently.

  3. “Who did the same thing to Bush”

    Bullshit.

  4. fotbois,

    Try looking here: http://thepeoplescube.com/red/viewtopic.php?t=1189 Even without the MSM sensationalizing it – unlike how they make sure to sensationalize anything that is anti-Obama – it only took a moment to find a source.

    I could have easily added many more references, but spam-check software on the blog would probably flag my comment due to excessive links.

  5. I haven’t looked at the link yet. I am with fortboise. Bush was NOT dogged like Obama has been – and it’s only been 7 months since being in office. Leftist militias or left leaning folks weren’t buying up guns and ammo to stave off the gumvint and that Texocrat President. Yeah – not to mention the obvious racist overtones that have been forthcoming.

  6. So when does the left start to perceive the threat? Plenty of these assholes are serious, armed, and don’t have a whole lot to lose. They have an enemy (that’s us) and are repeatedly told that the enemy is from within, and is trying to destroy the very fabric of our great nation. We recognize their cheerleader’s (Rush, O’Reilly, etc..) right to free speech to the point of encouraging a violent level of fear based on erroneous information. I personally consider the American experiment in democracy to be over, it cannot work unless we have common ground, and these people seek to dominate by force. The worst part of this is that they are working in the interests of a very tiny group of people who derive their power from sources other than the consent of the governed.
