    The Tolerance Party

    I find it amazing that the MSM isn't discussing it at all. A google search doesn't bring up one major news outlet including Fox.

    Obama Supporters Continue Threats To Riot, Assassinate Romney
    Secret Service attention fails to dampen violent Twitter comments

    Despite the issue garnering a significant amount of media interest as well as the attention of the Secret Service, Obama supporters continued their threats to riot and assassinate Mitt Romney if Obama loses in the aftermath of last night’s presidential debate.

    As we reported last week, Twitter has been flooded recently with violent comments from Obama supporters. The increase in volume of the comments seemed to coincide with Romney’s poll numbers edging higher against Obama.

    Not only have Obama voters been making open threats that they will riot and cause mayhem, they have also been caught making direct threats to assassinate Mitt Romney, prompting the Secret Service to announce that it was “aware” of the threats and would “conduct appropriate follow up if necessary.”

    Despite the fact that the media reported extensively on threats made against Obama prior to the 2008 election, their silence on the threats made against Romney has been deafening. Indeed, the act of a few old guys hanging up empty chairs in reference to Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech garnered substantially more coverage and concern from the press compared to hundreds if not thousands of tweets threatening violence against Mitt Romney.

    Americans who simply display political signs expressing opposition to Obama’s policies have been treated as potential violent threats by authorities in the past, and yet not a single Twitter user has faced retribution for making direct and sometimes graphic death threats against Romney.

    Leftists routinely cry foul and attempt to demonize conservatives as violent extremists whenever online rhetoric gets heated, and yet when their own engage in even worse conduct, their behavior is absolved and the media is disinterested.

    Before the Secret Service announced they were investigating the threats, Obama front group Think Progress attempted to imply that the whole story was somehow a racist contrivance dreamed up by the Drudge Report and Infowars.

    Here are just a selection of tweets from Obama supporters threatening riots and violence during and after last night’s foreign policy debate. There are too many to reprint in full.

    If the Secret Service does plan on following this up, they are going to be very busy indeed.

    Liberalism/Progressivism is only tolerant of those who agree with them. They are as intolerent of opposition and differing viewpoints as any other group. More so IMO, they rank right up there with theological intolerents.

    It seems many of those posts seem to come from black people based on their avatar or names.
    And they wonder why nobody hires them. Learn how to bevave like you are civilized.

    BTW, aren't those felonies to threaten like that? But, of course, Eric "My People" Holder would just brush it off a idle banter.

    I would say Twitter user "doucheKabob" is aptly named.

    It's going to be fun watching them looting and burning their own neighborhoods down, if Romney wins the election....

    Fixed, for clarity.
