Come on. The sticker said Abort Obama.

That could be taken as a threat.


Yeah...

Because we all know Obama is still a fetus in his mother's womb, right?

Give it a rest, please.

Guys, google
this story is real



Now, why on earth would some do that when it's so much
easier to laugh and ridicule? Personally, I've always found other
info to back up the articles that I've read on WND so I suppose
the main reason the site is downplayed by some is because of it's
conservative slant? Typical.


Put me down for wanting one of those bumper stickers too.
And, maybe a T-shirt.

Only by an idiot.

The Chief of Police is on record saying the officer overreacted. He then apologized, personally drove to the man's house, and gave him his sign back!

Who said the only definition of abort has to do with abortion?

Abort has many definitions including terminate.

if abortion is not murder, then how could that be a threat?

BO himself is all for it, you arent suggesting that he supports killing unborn humans, are you?

How is that a threat I thought Obama was pro-choice
It means he believes abortion is a good thing. Here is a good laugh for you. Oh by the way before you start the video look at Ann Coulter's eyes. I guess she is a reptillian after all.

Guys I am just saying that the sticker didn't say ABORTION it said abort. One definition of abort is to terminate.

The sticker was returned and afterwards the secret service still did a walkthrough of the guys house.

I'm not saying the cop didn't overreact. I'm just saying that abort has more then one meaning.

You can jump all over me if you want. I'm just pointing out the differant meanings of the word abort and how it could be seen as a threat.

If you were crazy enough to actually want to kill the President of the USA wouldnt you just get a bumper sticker that said Kill Obama?

If he just wanted to say impeach Obama couldn't he just had a sticker that said so?

Again just pointing out the differant meanings of the word abort.

Read the article that was posted on the bottom of the first page.

The reason the guy had the sticker was because he felt that Obama should be impeached over his stance on abortion.

Well I must say I have heard more than a few people say they want to string up George Bush and Dick Cheney but I dont see anyone harassing them.

Anal retentiveness aside, most people in American society would relate the word Abort in a policitcal context to mean abortion.

True, but how many of those people put a sticker on their car stating that we should string them up?

What is the difference? It is all free speech and it means the same thing. So are you saying it is worse to have it printed on a bumper sticker than to say it?

I doubt Timothy McVeigh drove around with a bumper sticker that said Abort the Oklahoma Government Building, but I bet he talked about it to a few people. So what is worse, saying it or getting a bumper sticker made. Do you really think if you are planning to kill someone you have a bumper sticker made first so you can drive around telling everyone you are going to do it?

Not at all. Do you know what abort means? I had an "abort bush" sticker on my car for 8 years, and flew it proudly. Not a threat in any way.

Its the same thing.

You should report anyone you hear saying something like that.

ONCE AGAIN i was pointing out how the word abort could be seen as a threat.

I am not taking sides in the matter. I can see how the cop seen it in the way he did and I can see how he had over reacted.

Apparently you must think I was taking the cops side in this.

I am just stating how this possibly could have been an honest mistake.

Continue argueing with me if you want. Mistakes happen, the cop saw it as a threat against the President and he acted(naively) on what he saw.

if it said something threatening I would understand
because saying such a thing about the president is illegal
so illegal I just said "something threatening" out of fear, lol

Abort is NOT such a term
Commander, Abort Plan!
Let's abort the project!

I can't believe some people actually think it's treathening

Abort can mean terminate.

Terminate can mean to kill.
