Threats on the Lives of the President and Other Funny Things
Matt Drudge caught this story about an Air America threat on the president's life. Forgetting the fact that a threat on the life of the president is illegal, it raises significant questions about the hypocrisy of the left.
They vociferously oppose the rest of us availing ourselves of 2nd Amendment rights (which ensures that their most reliable constituents, criminals, are the only ones with the guns) for reasons that have no basis in social science or psychology, and yet they are only too eager to "joke" about assassinating a president with a firearm.
Despite the claim that they were joking, I somehow am less than convinced. Air America has spent the past four and a half years spewing red-hot hateful lava at George W. Bush. They engage in crackpot conspiracy talk, and accuse him of all manner of evil. They throw pies, pies and shoes at people who agree with him, and the media really doesn't decry much of it at all because of the persons who are the targets. I seriously think that within the not-so-deep recesses of the left they may actually believe that they would be in the right to do as they have suggested in this sick little commercial.
These people are coming unglued and Bush's success in the election may have sent many of them over the edge. When they are inventing psychological terms to explain the fact that they can't get over Bush's victory, it bespeaks a very troubled group of psyches.
And I wonder whether anyone named Kennedy will speak against this, given that two of their brightest family members were killed by assassins.
Or is it different when the target is a Republican?
