Liberals — excuse me, the politically correct label is now ‘progressives’ — love to claim that they are the open-minded ones, where every opinion and vote counts, and The One promised to unite the country and end the partisan divide and they all swore to bring a new civility to the political discourse. How’s that working out?
Despite numerous media outlets attempting to downplay the issue, Twitter exploded last night following the debate with new threats from Obama supporters to assassinate Mitt Romney if he defeats Obama in the presidential race.
As we reported yesterday, in addition to threats by Obama supporters to riot if Romney wins, innumerable Twitter users are also making direct death threats against Romney.
Will the Secret Service investigate these threats made towards a presidential candidate (whom they are currently offering protection to)?
You know what I’d like to see? Sure, a very, Very Few so-called “right-wingers” make stupid threats. But, I’d really like some non-partisan organization (which would rule out the Southern Poverty Law Center) to study (or tally) all the threats, real or rhetorical, made by each side against the other. If I actually had any money, I’d bet it all on the outcome showing that
liberals progressives are responsible for the overwhelming majority of them.
Of course, as with the story above, the — also overwhelmingly liberal — media would ignore such a report.
