Obama/Ayres and liberal media beatup.

Buttons from the 1972 Democrat primaries.

HT Libertarian Republican.

It all started when The Scranton Times-Tribune reporter David Singleton reported that while congressional candidate Chris Hackett at a Palin rally was addressing the crowd and mentioned Obama’s name a man in the audience shouted “kill him."

The press has had a field day on the claim that McCain is running a hate campaign aided by Sarah Palin. Baghdad Keith Olbermann has given a well rehearsed emotional lecture to us on the hatefulness of the rabid GOP supporters and their calls to kill Obama.

Congressman John Lewis has had his bit to say (Brackets Mine): -
……… George Wallace, (D, AL) who also became a presidential candidate. George Wallace (D, AL) never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.
This of course alludes to the activities of the KKK, (D, AL) and tries to pin them on the Republicans. Sorry john, but George and the KKK, were yours.

Precious (D, IL) brought it up in the debate: -
Obama: ….. that he was troubled with what he was hearing at some of the rallies that your running mate was holding, in which all the Republican reports indicated were shouting, when my name came up, things like "terrorist" and "kill him," and that you're running mate didn't mention, didn't stop, didn't say "Hold on a second, that's kind of out of line."
The problem is that they are lying and have been caught out, “The Times Leader”: -

Secret Service says "Kill him" allegation unfounded.
SCRANTON – The agent in charge of the Secret Service field office in Scranton said allegations that someone yelled “kill him” when presidential hopeful Barack Obama’s name was mentioned during Tuesday’s Sarah Palin rally are unfounded. .....

Agent Bill Slavoski said he was in the audience, along with an undisclosed number of additional secret service agents and other law enforcement officers and not one heard the comment.

“I was baffled,” he said after reading the report in Wednesday’s Times-Tribune.

He said the agency conducted an investigation Wednesday, after seeing the story, and could not find one person to corroborate the allegation other than Singleton.

Slavoski said more than 20 non-security agents were interviewed Wednesday, from news media to ordinary citizens in attendance at the rally for the Republican vice presidential candidate held at the Riverfront Sports Complex. He said Singleton was the only one to say he heard someone yell, “kill him.”
The Secret Service are pretty serious people, and are charged with responsibility for the safety of all nominees and are bound to take such things seriously. There is no chance that they would cover this up.

There will always be the odd emotional inarticulate idiot who gets carried away and is an embarrassment to all involved. McCain shut two of them down a few days ago, and was rewarded by the liberals with reports that he praised Obama, then attacked him and then praised him again, suggesting that he was losing it.

For those liberals whining about ‘unfair’ tactics try the following from Andrew Sullivan and your fellow Obama supporters in this video, (for those sensitive to disgusting biological insults, don’t go there) : -
Sullivan; “"It's obvious that it's Bristol's baby and, if it isn't then it's obvious that Palin is a sick and twisted bitch for bearing a deformed fetus and she's fanning the flames of hatred to get Obama killed”


  1. Actually, the shout has been picked up at other Republican appearances and has been captured on video.

    To be balanced, there have been moments that lend a touch of class to the McCain campaign, but only moments and only a touch.

  2. If in fact 'the shout' has been picked up at other Republican appearances and has been captured on video I wonder why a journalist had to make this one up.

    There are as I have already, some people like this in all areas of politics and in all parties. The difference is that;

    (1) the democrat ones seem part of an organized effort, (see video),

    (2) There are more Democrat ones,

    (3) Only the Republican ones are visible to the media.
