Mitt Romney receives death threats: Is this what passes for Civility among Obama supporters?

This is what passes for Civility among Obama supporters??

I’m going to show you a small list of actual Tweets collected by Twitchy, posted during and just after this Tuesday’s 2nd Presidential debate.
I’m leaving the Twitter accounts posted, should you want to follow any of these fine, upstanding citizens. I also want you to look for any mention of this in the Major Media; ABC, MSNBC, CBS, CNN, New York Times… Not a peep.

Can you imagine the typhoon of scathing reports, calls for Federal Prosecutions and naked hatred which would surround anything even close to this, had the Tweets been from Tea Partiers threatening to kill Obama? And not just from the Media; Democrat Politicians across the country would be convening hearings, forming investigative committees and launching witch-hunts. Public Trials would be televised, starting this week.

I know that there are a great many decent Americans out there who are going to vote Democrat. I encourage, support and celebrate the fact we live in a society which actively encourages open discussion and debate. I work with, party with, eat with and even go to church with, a number of Democrats. And I count myself blessed to know them as friends; good people who care enough to discuss the issues and Vote, are the kind of folks I like to associate with. No matter what side of the isle they sit on.

So, I’m going to ask my Democrat friends, as they often ask me, to take a very close look at the kinds of behavior their party, and the news media which supports it, condones and covers up.

Please note that I have NOT edited these posts for content, so the language is going to be a little Salty, to say the least.

If Romney win this election, he might as well wear a shirt that says “Assassinate Me Bitch”

The Major Media’s is failing to do its job. Do they just not care about death threats against Romney, or are they simply afraid of being “racist” in their coverage of the news. These death threats don’t really jive with their narrative that only Tea Party types speak in terms of violence (which there is still no tangible evidence to support).

Yes, the Secret Service has been made aware of these and all the other posts advocating for the death of a Presidential Candidate. I can only assume that the individuals are being asked some VERY pointed questions by large, armed men who are not given to humor or equivocation.

So, my Democrat friends. Are THESE the kinds of people you like standing with, come election day?

    While I do not like any posts or actions threatening the lives of our political leaders ( and candidates ), let’s be honest … these types of threats are flying out from both sides. So, actually the question you ask of Democratics only in this article should also be asked of Republicians. As this story only talks about 1 night of threats against Romney … I would love to see an article detailing all the threats( written, spoken, and verbally spoken behind claims of art ) made against President Obama for the last 4 years. Nevertheless, this type of action should not be tolerated from anyone!

      You’ve raised an excellent point, Misty. Thanks for bringing it up.

      I Googled “Death threats against Obama” in an effort to find where he may have received such. Of the 11 options offered on page one of that search, 5 of the posts were about the massive “serial” threats this article listed, with no mentions of arrests.

      Four were about individual death threats against the President on twitter which lead to arrests, 1 was a Wiki article and 1 was a threat against Michelle.

      That doesn’t even come close to equaling the threats against Romney, and is a faint whisper of the collection of death threats leveled against G.W. Bush.

    You obviously need more time, much more time to look into all of these well thought out threats towards mitt Romney and make sure nothing bad comes from them.
