Well, let us see if the DEMOCRATS call out one of their own. Let me see, for months now, they have called for the Tea Parties to call out the "supposed" racists. Do you think they will call out one of their own left wing fringe communists that WISHED death to Palin?

I highly doubt it. Let us see if the DEMOCRATS here on this site call this out as absolute EVIL in their midst?

Moving on - it was a stupid move and one would think Politicians would know better.
Yet another social networking gaffe.

Yeah, never heard about this until just a little while ago as I was surfing.

Now, here at ATS, I had read that it was too bad that a few more conservatives were not on board.

That PISSED me off.

But, they were not politicians. I guess the folks are REALLY getting out of hand.

Wishing death on anybody is disgusting and immoral

Even for political reasons

This is abhorrent

The other day when the news came out, several people HERE said the same type of things.

I guess morality is NOTHING to some people.

Peace.

I despise Palin.

Could I ever WISH DEATH on someone, even those I despise?

Absolutely not.

No wonder this made the news. What a disgusting sentiment....

This is totally expected and fits just nicely with our current political climate.

I know how people feel, even though they try so hard to hide it.

It's not just Democrats either. It's all humanity.

Our political system has ALWAYS been like this, don't fool yourselves.

How else do you think the terms "political assassination" came into being?

This is par for the course known as human politics. Always has been, hope it won't always be.

I told my brother the other day, be careful discussing politics in public places.

I have NEVER said that before.

I have ALWAYS said that we should talk more about our system.

I think we are about 1775 in time frame, but because of the instantaneous proliferation of information, we are a HELL of a lot closer.

Problem is, continuity of government. That little thing scares the # out of me.

If wishes were horses beggars would ride..

Is all this excitement about words, a few sentences.. worth the drama?

Someone said something that will have no consequence..."joking about the possibility of Sarah Palin's death". Big deal, really.

I'm glad it disgraced a party clown, that's cool'n all.. but in fairness, after a few horrifying minutes of listening to palin, imo it's not unreasonable to wish for death to make the pain stop.. your own, or hers..even the speakers.. just as long as it stops...lol..

Oh dang, I just "joked about the possibility", my short career in politics is over, I guess... doomed by the joke police.

Do you even understand what is going on?

When was the last time that political figures were wished DEATH by political opponents?

Do you even KNOW?

Let me remind you, 1775.

Wishing for someone's death is no joke to me.

Sure, I despise her politics and personality.

I do not wish for death even in jest.

How repulsive.

The most disgusting part of that episode is Halloran's comment at the end of the video, stating that "this is nothing out of nothing"!
He wishes death upon two people and thinks it's a big nothing. I certainly hope the voters realize that such a person has no place "representing" constituents. What is he going to do- kill anyone he doesn't agree with, if elected?

I don't follow politics in other states, usually. Really, does anybody on ATS, who isn't from Kentucky remember who was running for governer in Kentucky 3 years ago? Hell, I live here, and I only remember who won. lol

I'm just wondering, though, will this guy get elected anyway, his stupid gaffs besides? That would mean much more to me, than his statements.

That would say a lot about the people in his district.

Meanwhile, do I wish death upon anybody? Do I hate anybody? Nope.
Could I be in such a dire situation where I might wish death upon someone? For sure. But during a state represenative postition? Nope. That would be insane. I don't think this state representative candidate is insane. Just rather naive and stupid, perhaps.

It's okay, in my opinion, to crack some jokes among friends and family, horrible as they might seem to be to others, but, ut oh. On FB and it's there for everyone to see? Duh. Epic fail!!! Get back to your usual job, and, hopefully, it's in a factory on the floor, or slamming hammers building a house, or flipping hamburgers. You've obviously attained the maximum level of your intelligence, wanna be representative.

I'm not slamming burger flippers and such, just, well, maybe this politician could get out of the way, and take one of those jobs, and let a more intelligent and savvy person advance.

There was a Billy Preston song from the 70's. It went, "nothing from nothing means nothing." Maybe Halloran was stuck on this old song?



Just maybe, it's true for his situation? I'll wait for the ballot count. Not that I will ever remember this clown.

The good news is that he was forced to resign by his own party.

www.wmur.com...


Fallout over comments about Sarah Palin on Facebook has led to the resignation of a state representative and the withdrawal of a candidate. Democratic candidate for state representative Keith Halloran announced Thursday afternoon that he was withdrawing from his race, a day after he came under fire for making a comment on Facebook related to Palin. Halloran commented on the page of Republican Rep. D.J. Bettancourt, who posted about the death of former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, who died Monday in a plane crash. In response to the post, Halloran wrote, "Just wish Sarah and Levy (sic) were on board," referring to Palin and Levi Johnston, the father of her grandson. Halloran at first called the criticism of his comment a "tempest in a tea party tea pot," but he later issued a statement on Facebook apologizing for the post. Thursday, he said he was withdrawing from the race for District 7. "After consulting with the secretary of state's office, I am withdrawing as an active candidate for the New Hampshire House," Halloran said in a written statement. "I urge registered voters to consider supporting and voting for the truly progressive candidates on the ballot on Sept. 14 and Nov. 2. Live Free and Move Forward."

Eventually this wont be such a 'big deal.' In just the few election cycles I've lived through I've seen the bar drop to neanderthal levels. Looking at the kids coming up I can more than guess that political discourse in the next 20 years will consist solely of:

"nuhuh"

and

"yeahuh"

and

"i hope you die"

Knuckles are already dragging across the board. The sloping brow and slumping posture are next.

It's all downhill from here.

Actually, I don't think they'll even be so eloquent. I think you need to translate the above to shorthand text messages.
