More wingnuts call for assassination and armed revolution

A poll just popped up on Facebook: "should Obama be killed?" The Secret Service is investigating. Meanwhile a speaker at the “Take Back America” conference lectured on “"How to recognize living under Nazis and Communists," and urged the troops – “So, keep your guns, and buy more guns, and buy ammunition....Take back America. Don't let them take the country into socialism….Don’t you dare give up your guns! Never, never, never!" The speaker has given her speech to teabaggers and is expected to give it to bankers too; Michelle Bachmann supports her. She claims Obama is like Hitler because he likes universal health care and equal rights for women. Another attendee hollered "Give them back one bullet at a time!" Another speaker compared an FCC official to Joseph Goebbels.

So…the media will yawn over these people and move on, just like the thugs who lynched the census worker, or the guy who shot the abortion doctor, or the armed maniacs who showed up at the Obama events…but elderly professor Bill Ayers was a huge story for months because he’s the real terrorist, right?
