With the president’s lackluster campaign and miserable four-year record nearly behind them and the media safely ignoring the Benghazi cover-up, Democrats are stepping up the voter intimidation phase of the Obama re-election effort.
President Obama, fresh off a harrowing series of Hurricane Sandy photo ops, returned to his usual ways, calling for supporters to seek “revenge” against Mitt Romney.
At a campaign stop in Ohio on Friday, the sparse crowd began booing at the mention of Romney’s name. The Man Who Would Be King told audience members, “Vote! Voting’s the best revenge!”
“Revenge” for what, exactly? If anyone should be the target of voters’ desire for ballot box vengeance, it should be the current officeholder, but logic is the last thing to expect from a campaign that has spent its time focusing on Big Bird, tax returns and persuading young women to lose their virginity.
Obama and his followers feed each other. They pick up on his hate-mongering vibe and he perpetuates the cycle by encouraging their blood lust. Like yin and yang, it’s hard to tell where one begins and the other ends.
True to form for Democrats, Obama supporters have been burning up Twitter and other social media with threats to riot if the Anointed One does not win on Tuesday.
“I’ma start riot if Obama don’t win,” Vanna Jamie James tweeted in one of the less vulgar posts in the past few days. Along with threats to start riots, there have also been threats to shoot Romney if he wins.
HBO host Bill Maher, naturally, had to pile on: “If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.”
Maher said that in the context of a joke, but considering that he is a million-dollar contributor to Obama’s campaign, it’s an open question whether there was a serious statement behind the intended humor. (We all know good comedy always contains an element of truth).
There have been plenty of reports of violence by liberals against conservatives in the past year, but I haven’t heard of many cases of conservative violence on liberals during the campaign, though there have been instances of liberals staging “attacks” that they tried to pin on conservatives.
The juvenile campaign run by Obama has a lot to do with this sort of behavior, but support of what passes for modern liberalism is very often just the result of an alchemical combination of immaturity and ignorance, with a proclivity toward violence being the inevitable byproduct.
Remember, this is the Administration that benefited from ACORN’s voter fraud and let the Black Panthers walk away from a slam-dunk voter intimidation case because they were Obama supporters.
Just like with the infamous big red “reset” button, and bowing to the Saudi king, Obama’s childish instincts have led his campaign down a sophomoric path, one which his lemming-like followers unquestioningly follow.
If the president calls for “revenge,” will it surprise anyone if the day after losing the election the country’s cities are on fire?
I for one remember working in LA and living through the LA Riots. For all the threats of violence and the racist hatred that was being unloaded from the ghettos of Los Angeles then – I simply didn’t want to believe that people would actually start burning down the city, beating and killing white people.
The days leading up to the riots, and immediately after; I was left with a persistent slow sickening burn in my stomach – like I was on the edge of throwing up all day. I am not stating this for dramatization – I actually became physically ill.
I am having those feelings once again.
