Angry lefto twitterers want to kill Romney

Post by VinceFoster » Wed Oct 17, 2012 4:41 pm

It is important to stress that these Twitter accounts are genuine, they are not fakes. Many of them have thousands of previous tweets.
The following Tweets are just some of the ones compiled by Twitchy during and after the debate;
- “If Romney win this election, he might as well wear a shirt that says “Assassinate Me Bitch”.
- “Yall ready to assasinate romney?”
- “Somebody needs to asassinate This mofo Romney.”
- “Romney make me wanna hop through the tv & just assasinate his ass.”
- “I aint gone lie… Food stamps the shit! I mite assasinate romney my damn self if he get elected!”
- “If romney get elected i hope a nigga assasinate his bitchass.
- “No birth control???? Lol rlly Romney the american population is going to overflow and then we’ll have to resort to murder and you’ll be #1.”
- “At this point in time I am completely prepared to MURDER ROMNEY MYSELF!”
- “If Romney win, IM GOING TO JAIL FOR MURDER cuz imma whack his bitch ass ASAP.”
- “If Mitt Romney wins, which I doubt, someone should assassinate him before he ruins the lives of our generation & our children.”
- “IF ROMNEY GETS ELECTED AND TAKES AWAY MY FOOD STAMPS IMA SEND SOMEONE TO MURDER HIS ASS.”
I'm so excited you decided

How do you know they're leftos? Maybe they have mental health issues. Maybe they're looking for attention in which case they thank you for your outrage and service.

And here are some from during the debate, all from 'normal tweeters' who I found doing the search "assassinate Obama":

I could never go to a presidential debate because I'd probably assassinate Obama
How has nobody tried to assassinate Obama?
Here's the plan and listen up: Obama will get in office for a second term. His handlers will assassinate him and cause a nationwide race war
I'll give someone 5 bucks to assassinate obama
someone assassinate obama right now please.
I honestly wish someone would assassinate obama. I hate him
Im surprised noone tried to assassinate Obama


That was just a quick search. Well done on getting your news from drudge, Vince.

Of course, it could be agent provacateurs wanting to make the other side look bad. Glad Vince researched this so thoroughly....

I know. It's terrible when you've just had an OP made to look ridiculous and are only left with trying to blame others.

So? That makes them..what?
People with too much time on their hands and who are self absorbed assholes?

C'mon, Wince, this was a piss-poor effort from a poster I would expect more from...cutting and pasting from Drudge? Ew.

And someone fired a gun into Obama campaign office in Denver while people were working.

Which is more dangerous? A tweet or a gun?

I'm not up on this whole twitter thing, but it's probably not the wisest move to have a photo of yourself next to your name stating how you want to kill the president. I wonder if any of these yahoos get a visit by The Man?

And let's put the above in context. Obama gets 30 death threats per day, an increase of 400% on what Bush II got.

I think they should get visits and then a bill for those visits.

which ,of course, makes Pee Tour look all that much smarter, when the men in black suits come to visit and he says "yes, that is a photo of me, but the man behind the Twitter handle is the one in the tank top to the left. You can confirm with Amanda Hugandkiss"

It's illegal to threaten to kill the president.

Is it illegal to threaten to kill someone who might become president if he becomes president?

I hope this is not a serious question, even theoretically. How could you not know the answer to this? It is breaking even more laws:

1) electoral fraud
2) assault
3) Prohibition of threats against the presidential candidates and other persons not covered by the presidential threat statute
4) electronic harassment
5) violaton of the Patriot act
5) Incorrect spelling and grammar

Apparently, Tagg (who the fuck names Republican children?) Romney is now threatening to "take a swing" at Obama for not being sufficiently cowed by Father. Hopefully, he'll also be talked to by Secret Service and maybe roughed up a little to teach him a lesson.

Let's face it- anyone who would post any kind of threat like that for either candidate has the maturity level of a puppy and the morals of a tomato.

They should all have their twitter accounts cancelled.
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!
