Swastika Found On Obama Campaign Office
A swastika was found painted on the window of President Barack Obama's campaign office in a Denver, Colo., suburb late Thursday.
The black Nazi symbol was found by building owners painted outside a window of the office, located in the Denver suburb of Conifer, 9News.com
reported. The office opened recently in the Jefferson County hamlet.
It's unfortunate that things come down to things like this.
The anti-Obama rhetoric coming from Fox News and other right wing outlets have driven people to commit ugly and disgusting acts such as this. I
expect people to call Obama all kinds of names on the internet, but when it crosses over into real life, we have a problem.
But it's not like it is the first time something like this has happened.
In 2009 during a Tea Party rally held to oppose the stimulus package on the day Obama signed the bill, a participant waved a sign bearing a
swastika in the "O" of Obama's name. The sign holder had a picture taken with conservative activist Michelle Malkin and was reportedly on stage
when then-state Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry (R-Grand Junction) spoke.
Now, when right wing personalities and politicians encourage this type of behavior and don't condemn it, what should we expect?
People like to blame Obama for dividing this country, but from day one it has been Fox News and the Right Wing trying to demonize Obama to get people
to hate him and to hate anyone that supports him.
They have driven people into such a hate filled frenzy, we have people making death threats over supporting Obama.
The swastika incident occurs two weeks after an Obama supporter in Tulsa, Okla., who had an Obama sign on his lawn reported receiving a death
threat from a neighbor. Kyle Counts, a 27-year-old law student, told HuffPost that the neighbor engaged him an argument after seeing the sign and then
yelled the threat, which was captured on video.
It's one thing to disagree with policies, it's another to allow personal hate to fill your hearts.
I disagree with Romney, I don't think his policies are good for the middle class or the poor of this country. But I don't hate him, I don't think
he is a Nazi or an evil man. I don't think he is hitler or a nazi. I don't think he wishes to do harm to this country. I just simply disagree
with what he thinks will make this country stronger.
So why must we have the Obama is a socialist, nazi, muslim, Kenyan, homosexual, traitor rhetoric every single day?
