Barack Obama: The Making Of A Murder

obama-killed.jpgTHE media plot about the plot – not yet finalised, nor known – to kill Barack Obama is underway and gaining momentum.

Look!  Out!

ABC news reports:

“There is no question that the possibility of violence directed at presidential candidates, especially Obama, is the elephant in the middle of the room,” says Peter Fenn, adjunct professor of political management at George Washington University, to describe the media’s careful coverage of the issue. “There is a hypersensitivity about this issue. And in one sense, there should be because you don’t want to put the idea out there. But you also get overanalysis, like with Hillary’s comments about RFK [Robert F. Kennedy]”…

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Phut!

Fenn says that he was catching a flight at Dulles International Airport last year when an African-American woman told him that Obama shouldn’t run. “She said, ‘They’re going to kill him.’ African-Americans are more worried about it.”

An  e-mail sent to the Southern Poverty Law Center that states: “ATTENTION, IF OBAMA BECOMES PRESEDANT I WILL KILL HIM MYSELF MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT.”

But this is the US of A where legends need a bullet to make them, well, legendary.

The latest controversy centered on a depiction of Obama in the cross hairs of a rifle used that appeared on the cover of Georgia’s Roswell Beacon newspaper. The controversy focused on the image, though the story, which included interviews with several white supremacists threatened by Obama’s candidacy, reflected a deeper reality.

Thomas Stevenson, a carpenter who lives near Atlanta, told the newspaper, “Some idiot out there’s going to put a bullet in that silver-tongued devil and then there’ll be a race war.”

Or not/ But until Obhama is knobbled – or isn’t – the American media can get excited out it and plot their outrage, specials, bulletins……
