Fear? Or Fear Mongering
ABC most definitely has become the All Barack Channel
Fear for Obama's Safety Grows as Hate Groups Thrive on Racial Backlash
Just a couple of observations:
"I don't think these are simply people who are mentally ill or off their rocker," Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, told ABC News of those behind the threats. "In a very real sense they represent a genuine reaction, a genuine backlash against Obama."
Language like that is rife in this article and as the media background noise ratchets up on these reports and the musings of those like Mark Potok, a very real potential exist for something to really occur. Where as before these media reports and the present hyping of these supposed threats, the threat level concerning this president was probably no greater than with any recent president.
If anything, I personally believe that the potential threats to former President Bush far out weigh in reality, anything that is currently being monitored by the secret service concerning this president.
And into the mix of these reports are pitched the opines of other supposed experts like this individual. (a former FBI agent, therefore, he must be right).
"It's certainly a scary time," said former FBI agent Brad Garrett, now an ABC News consultant. Garrett said the Secret Service "cannot afford to pass on anyone," and he believes "they really do fear that something could happen to [Obama]."
Garrett said statements like one recently made by controversial radio host Rush Limbaugh comparing a logo for the White House plan to a Nazi symbol "legitimizes people who are on the edge to go do something or say something."
"And if you go and take a look at this, you will find that the Obama health care logo is damn close to a Nazi swastika logo," Limbaugh said.
All of which sets the stage for a real life loon to rise to the literal baiting that these reports truly represent. And if that were to happen God forbid, we would have a martyr to completely overshadow each and every former president and their memories permanently and forever.
I was a small boy when JFK was killed and I remember the time and the decades long after the fact morning of the idolized prince of Chamelot. Therefore, I can only imagine the end result if something was to happen to this president.
But never the less the red eyed and rabid media is working the public and planting their seeds and setting the stage for what they will publicly state they never wish to see. While at the same time they will mumble under their breath in hushed tones to each other, what an end all news story of a life time it would be (if something were to happen). And they have already identified their scape goats and precisely who they would point fingers at.
These ravenous scavengers and peddlers of the obscene media should be cast aside by all clear and level headed thinking Americans and their hype and hustle should be cause for than anyone with good sense to keep on walking past their putrid offerings.
ABC has become nothing but a propaganda organ for the Obama administration and a purveyor hald truths at best IMO.
