Why Didn't They Kill Bush Instead?

A link to a Daily Kos rant led to me a comment within the replies.

The original poster was complaining about an argument he had with his next-door neighbour, about Barack Obama. She uttered the worst thing you can imagine about him. No, not that. Not the word Jesse Jackson used for black people like Obama.

Something worse, if that's possible:

That, if he is elected, that she hoped he would be killed within 24 hours. A disgusting thought, and I hope that person rues the day she uttered such a horrible wish.

But the problem with some people is that they cannot see that their side has just as many, if not more people who wish the exact same thing to President Bush.

As evidence, I give you this reply in the same thread.


if the world wouldn't be instantly better off if Bush disappeared, why of all the people in the world to be assassinated he hasn't been. Or Cheney, like when the shell landed near him when he went to the Middle East but didn't hurt him? Did no one think "Darn!"? Really? Did you see the story about the little Iraqi girl who came to the states to have her foot amputated? Her sister lost both her legs below the knees and her brother died when the US dropped a bomb? You STILL never even thought of it?

Look, I'm about as nonkiller as you can get. I'm a vegetarian. I fought city government when they wanted me to decapitate my meadow (you would call it mowing). One of my favorite lines in Star Trek that I remember still 30 years later: "NO KILL I" (the rock mother horta). But when I see the deaths and misery and destruction he has caused -- any one of them! even Supreme Court assh*les like Scalia, Thomas, Alito, Roberts -- and their infuriating refusal to acknowledge the harm and shame in what they've done -- seriously, nobody ever wished someone would put a dent in that? I don't know, maybe I've got more in common with that woman than is nice to admit. Will no one rid us of this pestilence?

It doesn't stop there, when you start wondering, you zigzag back and forth like you were patching a hole in your jeans with a sewing machine, and eventually you get past it. And you want a trial, and public discourse and asterisks and subterranean fonts of shame in future history books. But there is nothing that can balance the scales of justice now and make the wronged whole. Nothing. Not even that. Don't look away, face it."

Apart from the unintended moonbat hilarity of calling mowing a lawn "decapitating his meadow" (and having fought City Hall for the right not to), he ripped off a page from Henry II, and cowardly wished death on the sitting President of the United States, and his Vice-President, by hoping someone would step up and do the deed.

He even echoed the King's famous words about Thomas à Becket and cried, "Will no one rid us of this pestilence?".

(Such a shame he was later canonised, and the King did penitence for his death wish)

If he had done it, himself, I would've personally directed this reply to the Secret Service, whether a death threat was levelled to President Bush, or a presumptive President Obama. Presidents of the United States can be reviled, abhorred and frothed in rabid hatred over, but they cannot be threatened with death without consequences.

But who on the extreme Left would do same as I would, for President Bush?

One person even up-ticked the post, in agreement!

That's two people who find nothing wrong in offing their own head of State. And a whole lot of agreement by tacit approval of the post, since it wasn't deleted, by one of the most visited blogs in the world.

Just in case, though, I've kept the post so that if someone at that sputum-hocking blog gets a conscience and makes it disappear, you can see it in its entirety here.

  • Vicks, these are the people who celebrated when Reagan annopunced he had Alzheimer's, celebrated when he died, prayed for Nixon to die, and so on. They've been around a long time. They are uncivilized, ugly darkness-dwellers.

  • "Why Didn't They Kill Bush Instead?" "He deserves death."
    "Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

  • For all the complaints from the left about the wingnuts loving guns and violence, it seems to me other than MLK's killer, one could describe the rest of the assination attempts in the last 50 years as having been left of center

    - Truman 1950 FALN were clearly left of center.
    - Kennedy 1963 Oswald was an avowed Marxist who defected to the USSR
    - The Manson families 2 attempts on Ford, though not strongly political were clearly left of center
    - Sirhan Sirhan supposedly shot RFK because of Kennedy support for Israel in the 1967 war

    Hinckley attempt on Reagan? simply wacko attack on a conserative President
