Overheard At Anti-Obama Rally: "Hang Him! We've Got Rope!"

"Operation American Freedom," held recently in coordination with a sheriffs' rally to protest President Obama's immigration plans, turned out to be a handful of right-wing extremists gathered in front of the White House. They made appalling statements, as picked up in the video below supplied by Right Wing Watch, including “Hang the traitor!”; “Hang the lying Kenyan traitor!”; “We’ve got rope!”; “Plenty of trees in the front yard; wouldn’t be the first one hung on one of them trees.”; “Whatever happened to those good ol’ days?”; “Don’t snap his neck, you watch him choke to death.”; “He’s just biding his time until Satan takes him home to where he belongs.” These horrendous, racist sentiments, associated with lynching, point to the fact that there is a segment of this country that nurtures an irredeemable, murderous rage at the reality of a black president.

Do you know what the problem is? If you pinned any one of these idiots down, not one of then could tell you what to what it is exactly that he or she objects. I'm convinced that if Obama said that he roots for The Mets, tomorrow The Yankees would have every conservative rooting for them.
