McCain supporters take down your yard signs and take down your bumper stickers. Your safety is too important, seems like some Obama supporters can not control their anger at the thought of someone voting against their messiah.

Richard said the robber took $60 from the woman, then became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face, Richard said.

"Will the media run with a story of an Obama supporter who went berserk at the sight of McCain signs and repeatedly struck a woman volunteer on the head with a stick?"

The wrangle started outside of Murphy's Irish Pub, 1615 W. Wells St., around 2 a.m. when a 21-year-old male Marquette student was struck in the face while holding a "McCain Palin" campaign sign and yelling to vote for John McCain in the upcoming presidential election. The student said he was blindsided when a group of three individuals approached him, though he is not sure exactly which individual hit him.

Rog Coverely said several pellets pierced his Longwood home. Coverely showed several spiderwebbed-holes in the front windows of his home.
The Republican manager said he is convinced he was targeted because of new McCain signs he added around his home.


Just be careful guys and gals...there are some crazies out there.

And the racist McCain supporters aren't?

The political racist cartoons that have Obama and chicken and watermelon on the sides of the picture aren't offensive?

McCain supporters do not even know our history or even have a reason to be against Obama.

McCain supposedly thinks vets are the greatest men but wont fund them?

RRConservative, don't try and turn it around

Maybe we ought to get Jeff Foxworthy to give out some of his signs to Obama and McCain supporters who are getting out of control.

Cause it is obvious these people have no brain to think with.

you want to kill a cub and hang Obama signs on it.........Here's your sign

For the Obama supporter who attacked then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter "B" into her face........Here's your sign

Are you saying all McCain supporters are racist?


The political racist cartoons that have Obama and chicken and watermelon on the sides of the picture aren't offensive?


Do you blame the Republicans for this one.

I beg to question whose history you are referring to? Let's see McCain supporters are Republicans and Obama is a Democrat. Two different views and two different parties.......YEP...they have a reason to against Obama.

Been covered in many threads but has nothing to do with this one.

I'm not taking down my signs, not am I going to remove my bumper stickers. I WILL NOT be intimidated into giving up my freedom of speech by a bunch of thugs. I may not be in the greatest shape, but I sometimes carry a cane (a club, really) when my knee acts up. I might have to start carrying it on a daily basis. Mess with me at home, and out comes the shotgun.

Not but many of them are, citing their disapproval of Obama because of his skin color.

Yes, I do.

Of course they are going to rival but people say "Because he is black" or "He is going to raise taxes". I hope to God they never lower the voting age...

Still

This is just a sign (pardon the pun) of what is to come.
If anyone thinks rioting is not imminent when Obama loses they are severely mistaken.
All I can say is, stay indoors and lock the doors on election day.
The ghetto is coming to your town.

Personally, I think the media is making an extra effort to locate folks like this to sensationalize their stories and increase their ratings. They make it look a lot more common than one thinks.


Raising taxes is a legit issue as to why one would not vote for Obama.

It's not the media, it's hearing it more than twice a day from teenagers/adults.

Obama is raising taxes for people that have an income of $250,000 or higher.

Its messed up that politics can turn to violence. One bad apple ruins the bunch, right? Wrong! All because a couple of a holes didn't learn self control does not mean that all democrats are bad people. I don't support either of them, but i don't think people should take down their signs and what not. Its what you believe in, no matter if its politics, religion, ect. We are in America.. Or whats left of it.

Woo-Hoo! Right on!


If we all stopped doing anything that ever got anyone hurt, we'd have to just lie in bed all day and never do or say anything! We'd never drive, take a bath or fly in an airplane. Talk about overreacting!

Do not be intimidated by thugs! This guy's a thug.

So, put up your McCain (and Obama
) signs and let your opinion be known!

Obama can't raise or lower taxes as President. That is for Congress to decide. Look it up in the Constitution. And even if he propose it to Congress they may see it otherwise. Therefore Obama tax plan is no guarantee.

People do ugly things. They show the best of themselves [sometimes] in times of dire turmoil; they illustrate the worst of themselves in times of duelling ideologies. It will and has happeded for both sides. These "people" do no represent the totality, or even a segment, of the party in question as a whole. It's a sad and tawdry by-product of people on both sides of the fence that believe their opinions are worth fighting for.

Kinda makes you think......

Perfectly said. I think I've said that to you more than twice now.
thank you, friend.

If you all have to have a neighborhood watch to guard your signs, then I hope you can agree upon the signs, or at least agree upon your right paid in blood to display them and the right to disagree without rancor, but to protect each other from those that would seek to limit your freedoms.

This is not so much a commentary on how some people of a political persuasion can't control their tempers, but rather a sad commentary on how regular people are taking their frustrations out on what they see as the root cause of an extended war with many casualties, an economy that is faltering under the Republicans it's all good watch, and the perception that it could still be close in the elections and that is just too much for some to take.

But before casting the first stone, let's look at what could have happened to cause such a drastic action of protest. I'm sure many people in America know someone who has either been killed in the current war or been maimed. Now what if that someone was a dearly loved family member.

Many people have been laid off also, and with bills piling up and many losing their houses we hear about a 700 billion dollar bail out bill to rescue the people responsible for many losing those jobs. To add insult to injury, many of the ones behind the failing economy are leaving with millions in a golden parachute.

So before thinking one faction or another are just non law abiding bad people think about putting yourself in their shoes, and then think about a candidate that says we may need to be in Iraq and Afghanistan for another 100 years...It is just too much!!!

Back in the 1930's, the Democratic Socialist Party, also know as the Nazi Party used the same tactics of assaulting people and committing violence on people to intimidate them. When they finally succeeded in taking the nation, they ended up causing a world war and leaving millions dead.

Remeber the words of Joe Biden, who said the "Mark my words. Obama is going to need you there in the cities because Obama will make a decision and at first it will appear as though we were not right..."

Obama is a Socialist, and also a democrat. prior to WW2 the world was in an economic depression. Kind of makes you wonder.

Anecdotal.
Maybe I should coin a new word for this phenom....."Anecodolitise"

"joe the plummer"....if I hear that guy mentioned one more time!

So some whack job carved "B" into someone's head. A bunch of people got raped today, got beat up by their dad, got shot because they were wearing red when they should have been wearing blue.

Riots if Obama loses? They have riots when winning teams win and when winning teams lose. People are retarded. People have casted their votes already in a lot of states and we have nearly two weeks left.

Ayers? Seeing Russia from your window? How many dumbarse issues do people focus on? Once again I maintain that this election has brought out the worst in people and has shown the world just how ignorant WE are. We aren't suppose to be as ignorant as the rest of the world! We are suppose to be better than that! We talk about being so great but we let the retards represent us in the media. That dumbass lady from my home state. "Obama...is....is....is....you know.....an Arab" How about we target our venom at all the retards out there representing us to the rest of the world. How about you people that spout off on something you know nothing about, keep it to yourself and vote the way you want. Stop repeating the crap you hear from Hannity and Rush and Olberman and Maddows....how about you stop pulling your threads from the Drudge Report. How about looking at some history. What "really" will the next President's power to change a damn thing? The Supreme Court is it. If you want a liberal court than go with Obama....If you want more Scalia's then go with McCain. Everything else is either about color or who can look and sound better on tv for the rest of the world. Obama wins there. McCain has the face of "things as usual" he has the face of the cold war.
If that is fine, then cool. I hate Obama's idea for the Court but I also want Rove, Cheney, Bush, and the other cold war white guys to get out of the scene and go rape the Country in their business dealings until they die and go to some monotheistic religion's hell.
Now, when you people want a real change then vote for the third party candidate....otherwise just vote for the skin color or the face you want to represent this Country....But stop feeding the retards! Stop telegraphing to the rest of the world that we are by no means superior to them and that we are a bunch of hypocritical cavemen! (and women)

OMG! How could I forget that "socialism" is a bad word and "facist" is synonomous with Nazi.
We have been a facist state since.....oh, fill in the blank.
Norway does fine with socialism. No, I'm not even going to bother asking tards to actually learn what socialism is or facisism. It is "evil" and that is all you need to know, right? Got to love those public schools of ours. Your indoctrinization is complete. You are right and everyone that thinks otherwise is wrong. Ohhhh say can you seeeeeeee......
.....I want to be 14yrs old again and think this was the best, and only Country that everyone in the world wanted to live in. (anyone over 40yrs old, go ahead and lie that you didn't think that way too when you were young) Oh yeah, lets not forget that it really doesn't matter who is the President because we are all....whatever it was on 12/21/2012.....please tell me it wasn't an American that came up with that retarded "doomsday" thing. By the way, are we still talking about Obama being the Messiah or Anti-Christ? Do you not feel just a bit....uh....retarded....saying or thinking that? Does McCain have a cool title too? Is he found in some long lost Nostradomus quatrain? Some Mayan hieroglyphics? McCain deserves something too, after all, he spent a bunch of years in the Hanoi Hilton, where he transformed from just being an average POW into having great powers and talents that make him qualified to be President of the United States of America......(drowning in my sarcasam)
