Compassionate Conservatism: Kill Obama

A Pennsylvania Sarah Palin rally produced a disturbing moment. A man screamed for Barack Obama to be executed.

Chris Hackett addressed the increasingly feisty crowd as they await the arrival of Gov. Palin.

Each time the Republican candidate for the seat in the 10th Congressional District mentioned Barack Obama the crowd booed loudly.

One man screamed "kill him!"

The McCain campaign is trying to move away from this. Republicans have long played the race card. It is finally biting the GOP in the ass. No political party can not preach "compassionate conservatism" and belittle blacks, gays, Arabs and the patriotism of half of America. Voters get tired of the spin and being picked on.

The problem is bigger than John McCain and Sarah Palin. There are many Americans that really want to kill another person because of race, sexuality and political beliefs. These are the people that bomb abortion clinics and are part of the militia movement. We worry about terrorism abroad. We fail to understand the potential to breed homegrown radicals.

William Ayers and Timothy McVeigh have different backgrounds. But both shared a hatred for the federal government. Imagine 1,000 American men with their intelligence and motivation. I don't blame either political party for these men. That doesn't mean more racist campaign rhetoric should be tolerated. McCain claims he is capable of leading. He should start by talking about tolerance and turning the GOP away from the Southern Strategy. If McCain can or will not do this, he defeats his own argument about his leadership skills.

You seem to imply there is something wrong if a babykilling abortion mill is burned or bomb. Which do you prefer, a pile of bricks or a pile of dead babies? Innocent unborn babies deserve to be protected just as born children deserve to be protected. You would have no problem protecting born children if they were about to be murdered.
SAY THIS PRAYER: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner and am headed to eternal hell because of my sins. I believe you died on the cross to take away my sins and to take me to heaven. Jesus, I ask you now to come into my heart and take away my sins and give me eternal life.

You have some interesting visitors Michael.

Anyway, interesting thing is someone said the same thing at a Clearwater Palin rally.... This isn't isolated.

Don, are if you are defending terrorist attacks against abortion clinics then get out of my comments section. This blog does not support terrorist attacks.

Alex, my troll factor is mild to what friends at more popular progressive blogs. Pr guest blogger Tas used to enjoy tormenting troolls, at Loaded Mouth. Those were the days.
