    Last night a 16 year old girl tweeted "Someone needs to assassinate Obama...like ASAP".
    She added the hash tag - #DieYouPieceOfShit.

    The Secret Service is investigating.

    This was not the only assassination threat to be made during the DNC convention.

    The extreme amount of out-of-control hate that exists on the radical right today is truly scary and toxic to our country.

    Yup.

    The Secret Service will have to be extra vigilant over the next couple of months.

    The campaign is going to enflame all the hate-filled right-wing extremists - and with President Obama making many public appearances on the campaign trail - the danger is real.

    WHY DOES SHE FEEL SO THREATENED ? Why does she feel that President Obama is such a threat to her country,,,,,that the only solution is his murder?


    Perhaps she's read the posts of 'socalfitness' . He's stated repeatedly that President Obama is "AN ENEMY OF OUR COUNTRY------A SECRET FOREIGN AGENT"......etc. etc.

    IF this poor girl has a granddad like 'SaggyTits'........or if she's been exposed to Glenn Beck or Faux News, she's only responding to the poison.

    You raise a great point.
    A young person like this girl was surely taught to hate by someone who's older - and who should know better.

    What is a bratty 16-year-old doing on Twitter? Clearly a case of parents not keeping an eye on their children icon_rolleyes.gif

    Although tweeting something like that makes me believe she musn't have bright parents.

    I know she is only 16, but you'd think at that age she would have enough sense to know the seriousness of sending out a tweet like that. Not very intelligent.

    People with atrophied brains shouldn't be allowed internet access. In all seriousness...why do people think it is a good idea to express everything they think so publicly? Did she not think this wouldn't go over well? Oh, right...brain atrophy. icon_wink.gif

    Stupid people will always do and say stupid things, it's basically because, well, they're stupid.

    During the 2008 campaign, I cringed, every time I saw Obama speaking to big crowds, out of doors. I was so afraid that somebody would try to get him. And, it's the same, this time around. But, all we can do is to hope for the best.

    BTW, I hope that the Secret Service takes aggressive action in response to every single threat, including this stupid young girl.

    Sadly I've seen and experienced equal hate here at RJ from the left.

    Why isn't she being arrested? What she did was illegal. Teenagers are just as capable of carrying out threats as anyone else. We see proof of that every day.icon_evil.gif
