Well it seems the debate between Romney and Obama on Oct 16th has created quite a stir with the Food Stamp crowd.

It appears some people have "SNAPped" and are calling for Romney to be "assassinated" over fears of food stamp cuts !!!!!!

This is no joke.

Twitter and Twitchy went berserk with wild comments.

Now how can people be *Soooo* worried about possibly losing $200 a month in assistance ?

Perhaps all the fervor was started by ?????

Warning: some comments are offensive !

(Breitbart Opinion)

Man alive, can you imagine the media reaction if in 2008 Obama was thisclose to winning the presidency and dozens of citizens made public death threats against him? Between the tweets collected at Twitchy and Info Wars, the Secret Service will have plenty to keep them busy for the next few weeks. But the media has shown no interest whatsoever in what is a legitimate story.

The corrupt media's ignoring it for two reasons. First off, they just don't care about death threats against Republicans. What you have there is a sort of depraved indifference. Secondly, reporting on death threats against Romney will make him a sympathetic character, and three weeks from an election, there's no way in the world the media will allow that to happen. ....

Media Ignores Dozens of Post-Debate Death Threats Against Romney

Despite numerous media outlets attempting to downplay the issue, Twitter exploded last night following the debate with new threats from Obama supporters to assassinate Mitt Romney if he defeats Obama in the presidential race.

As we reported yesterday, in addition to threats by Obama supporters to riot if Romney wins, innumerable Twitter users are also making direct death threats against Romney.

The primary reason given for Obama supporters wanting to see Romney dead is the fear that he will take away food stamps......

If they did that in the u.k they would get hammered for inciting a riot never mind the death threats.

The MSM may be ignoring it, but I really don't think the Secret Service will.

Is this the new right wing propaganda technique? Make fake twitter accounts and poorly impersonate black people?

From, of all things, Brietbart:


Dozens is the key word here. Dozens. Not hundreds, nor thousands, nor an uprising. A handful of idiots, or maybe even provocateurs. And that's all.

Why is the media ignoring it? Because it's the way of things. Any news story will bring a few folks out of the woodwork to act like dolts. It's a non story.

Why is this a surprise? Romney has more money than King Midas, enough for several mansions, off shore accounts and a car elevator, he's never had to go join the Army because there were no jobs in his tiny town and his parents had no influence, his sons will never see combat either (unless you consider combat 'working towards helping their father get into the White House), and here this robotic POS bully-boy now wants to pull the last remaining safety net out from under tens of millions of people. I work with people on food stamps. Some of them are 'victims' and deadbeats, yeah. Most of them are veterans with PTSD and various health issues, women with kids and missing fathers (who probably don't have jobs either) and many are children who through no fault of their own were born into houses with little income. Mitt doesn't give a damn about them, but he wants to give the Pentagon obscene amounts of extra money? He's threatening people's lives, that's why they're threatening him back. Welcome to reality, Mitt! Have a good long look at the Zapruder film, Annie!

May I suggest that the next time you need to go to the Emergency Room, you have them send Mitt Romney the bill.

I'm willing to bet my left arm this was people who are one, not on food stamps nor ever have been and two, working for Romney himself to make a certain faction of the citizenry look bad. Oh yes I went there.

ETA: He can't do it anyway, it's the state that decides how much and whom gets it so...whatever.
