According to an article in the conservative paper the London Telegraph, Sarah Palin’s hateful rhetoric is being blamed for a huge increase in the number of death threats against the president elect.
“The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks.”
There have been two assassination attempts broken up and various death threats, the majority being in the white supremacist community.
“Details of the spike in threats to Mr Obama come as a report last week by security and intelligence analysts Stratfor, warned that he is a high risk target for racist gunmen. It concluded: “Two plots to assassinate Obama were broken up during the campaign season, and several more remain under investigation. We would expect federal authorities to uncover many more plots to attack the president that have been hatched by white supremacist ideologues.”
Many believe this may have caused permanent damage to Sarah Palin’s reputation and may hurt any future attempts at a political run.
“Irate John McCain aides, who blame Mrs Palin for losing the election, claim Mrs Palin took it upon herself to question Mr Obama’s patriotism, before the line of attack had been cleared by Mr McCain.”

It would seem that hate speech, racism and homophobia backfired on the Republican Party this election cycle. Jeff Katz and WBT Hate Radio have spent months in a campaign against Barack Obama. Monday thru Friday from 9:00am-6:00pm there has been a constant stream of hatred and ignorant filth piled upon the airwaves from their 50,000 watt radio station. It would seem that karma has bitten them in the posterior. NONE of the candidates they supported were elected. So who are WBT and Jeff Katz trying to sell their hate to and who are the idiots that are buying advertising from these Nimrods ? Here is how it went down in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County , North Carolina.
Obama/Biden(D) 61.83% 252,652 votes
Mccain/Palin(R) 37.44% 152,957 votes
Barr/Root(L) 0.46% 1,891 votes
WRITE-IN 0.27% 1,092 votes
Kay Hagan(D) 61.59% 248,454 votes
Elizabeth Dole(R) 35.47% 143,059 votes
Christopher Cole(L) 2.89% 11,652 votes
WRITE-IN 0.05% 211 votes
Governor of North Carolina
Bev Perdue(D) 49.04% 198,631 votes
Pat McCrory(R) 48.94% 198,246 votes The 8 time mayor of Charlotte that had a show on WBT
Mike Munger(L) 2.02% 8,184 votes
Clearly WBT does not represent the people of Charlotte as you can see. We deserve better and its an embarrassment to think that when visitors come to the Queen City they might actually hear the filth that Jeff Katz and WBT puts out there and leave thinking that we are some backwater trapped in the 1960’s south. Its a pitiful way for a company to make money and they should be ashamed. Jeff Katz has been fired from other jobs for spreading hate. Why should Charlotte have to suffer his hate ?

The people have spoken loud and clear. Change is coming. Barack Obama is the next president of the United States of America. Joe Biden is the next Vice President of the United States. He has won by over double the electoral votes needed and by a margin not seen since LBJ. He also won the states in the deep south that will probably change the political landscape forever for the better. Its time for all Americans to pull together. We rise and fall as one nation, together. Democrats and Republicans.
A librarian shows up at a public John McCain Rally on city property and is promptly issued a citation for trespassing by police and is escorted off the premises for simply carrying a sign that says “McCain = Bush”. Who says John McCain doesn’t support the right to free speech ?
There are several reasons the Republican Party died in 2008. I’ll explain several I am sure of. If you can add some insight to the reasons, please feel free to add your comments.
One of the groups that took over the Republican Party were anti-abortion religious fanatics that have turned the Republican Party into a religion instead of a conservative movement. When your base is the Christian Taliban your probably not going to get any crossover votes.
We didn’t catch or kill Osama Bin Laden and lost the war against al-Qaeda and got into a unjust war with Iraq that has taken the lives of 4100+ American soldiers and 500,000+ Iraq civilians and 7 years later there is no end in sight.
Secret prisons and POW torture at the behest of the United States Government. People imprisoned for years without being charged with any crime. Violating the Geneva Convention with permission from the Republican President of said United States.
Sending our jobs overseas. Giving tax breaks to corporations that send our jobs overseas. Giving tax breaks to the rich. Seeing the only jobs being created are at Wal-Mart and McDonalds.
Trillion Dollar deficits and the largest expansion of the government since the New Deal.
Right-Wing Nuts spewing hate and lies daily over the airwaves about Democrats that are over 50% of the population. Its pretty tough to tell lies these days when the truth is just a mouse click away.
Allowing government departments to spy on US citizens phones calls and electronic data without a search warrant and call it Homeland Security.
Attacking immigrants, gay people, minorities especially Muslims and pretending that as a group they are not important and don’t count and don’t deserve a place as Americans.
Now the Republican Party is pretty much dead and delegated to south and losing ground there. Young people just don’t join the Republican Party anymore. Hate mongers and war mongers are not cool. Killing innocent civilians and shredding the Constitution isn’t cool either. Now its time for the Republican Party to curl up and die or get rid of the pollution that has poisoned it. I believe its dead and I won’t shed a tear.
How can you call yourself Pro-Life if you don’t support sex education that without it may lead to unwanted abortions or murders you crow about ?
How can you can you call yourself Pro-Life if you don’t support teaching our young people about birth control and sexually transmitted diseases in school among their peers ?
How can you call yourself Pro-Life if you support the death penalty ?
How can you call yourself Pro-Life if you don’t support world Aids Prevention ?
How can you call yourself Pro-Life if you aren’t trying to stop our unjust war in Iraq ?
How can you call yourself Pro-Life if you aren’t doing something to alleviate world hunger ?
Most Christians involved in the Pro-Life movement aren’t really Pro-Life. Republican policies are Pro-Death, Pro-War and Pro-Genocide. Even though the Republican party has never done anything for Christians they they still support them. If you want to stop abortion, you have to start with education. Abstinence is a joke. If you really want to alleviate the problem, you have to use real solutions. Some people will get abortions. But the number can be lower if people would take extremism out of the mix. Abortion is a social issue and the Republicans are historically terrible with solving social issues. Abortion is just a political football used by Republicans during campaigns. The Democrats are the only Party trying to help with social issues. It might be a time to re-think things if you call yourself Pro-Life.
