Will there be riots if Romney wins the election?

    I thought Obama was planning to stage his own assassination attempt in order to declare martial law before the election.

    At least, that is what has been circulating among right wing groups (like the Constitution Party of Florida), a Republican legislator in Tennessee and conspiracy sites and blogs.

    What really baffles me is why anyone would take anything found on InfoWars.com seriously.

    they are posting links to social media sites of people saying romney should be assassinated or there should be riots if romney wins and commenting on it. it's not exactly conspiracy land.

    Really?

    Are the twitter comments more serious than the dozens of photos of hanging Obama in effigy that the right wing finds so humerous?

    Or the handful of riot comment more serious than Tea Parties around the country and right wing militia groups suggesting there might be a necessity to "spill blood" to protect the country from socialists like Obama?

    Or more serious than the fact that assassination threats against Obama in his first year in office were 400 percent higher than Bush in one year alone ?
    Personally, I think right wing white supremacy groups, militia groups, gun nuts, etc. pose a far greater threat to elected officials and domestic security than a handful of tweets.

    And the highly selective and politically motivated fear mongering crap found on InfoWars only fuels some of the less stable of the wing nuts.

    Think of Alex Jones as Limbaugh on steroids, but far more delusional.

    Or spend some time on white supremacy or militia discussion boards and tell me they are not as threatening as the tweets that have you so concerned

    Do you think there at least as many (or more) threatening tweets from the right that Alex Jones ignores to suit his agenda?

    the racist right. how very shocking.

    i don't expect riots. depending on how things go of course. i attended the protests along with tens of thousands of others none of whom got on tee vee for the initial investiture of george w bush after the florida debacle. but there were no riots. there was merely a demonstration that a significant portion of the country did not consider bush legitimate because of the way the election had played out in florida. i expect that if the republicans are able to carry through with the forms of voter suppression they've been accused of trying to put into place that there will be problems. but i would much rather see the right get smashed electorally. just smashed. rendered irrelevant. given that they don't have the dignity to declare themselves out of business, as one would expect to see were it the case that their markety market ethics actually applied to them. but i have long since learned---as i think most have---that ethics is a term that only applies to other people.

    personally, i wonder what might happen from the neo-fascist right if there is a tight election that they lose.

    According to Alex Jones, Obama will order those DHA, IRS, SSA and other federal agents he armed with millions of round of hollow point bullets to round up those "patriots" if they get uppity....and we might finally put those FEMA detention camps to use!

    my inked up skinhead barber was talking to me about this alex jones stuff in a kind of conspiratorial voice while he was cutting odd shapes into my hair. he assured me---i think---that he was also strapped symmetrically as was everyone he knows. yikes...kinda.

    pan6467 a triangle in a circular world.

    All I can say to this is, it's laughable. it's like a bunch of rich white men sat around and decided to tweet "in ghetto" threats so that people would have even more reason to vote for Romney.

    As for Alex Jones, he's nothing more than a conspiracy fraud, who does what he does for his 15 minutes of fame and the millions he makes conning his cult like followers. He was saying 8 years ago that Bush was going to use the FEMA camps, Bush blew up the WTC, and that the Illuminati were going to take over.... that never happened. 4 years ago according to him if Obama were elected this election would never happen, guns would have been confiscated and we'd all be in the NAZI styled FEMA camps that Bush supposedly built.

    I can almost guarantee IF Romney is elected old Alex boy will find ways to make a conspiracy out of that, just as IF Obama is re elected he will keep the conspiracies going. He probably has 4 years of scripts written up already for whoever wins.

    I used to love AM Coast to Coast with Art Bell.... the Noori came took over started giving Alex Jones time and at first I could see some of what he was saying as true, but then he twisted it and spun everything to suit HIS agenda so that people would think he was an insider and "knew" all this crazy shit was true and the government was hiding it all BUT HE KNEW DAMMIT. Needless to say I have not listened to AM C2C since. Loved Art Bell hate George Noori. Bell was pretty much apolitical and stuck to the supernatural and UFO's, Noori is just another right wing talking head who took a great show and turned it political.

    If not further down the term.

    I certainly hope not.

    Gut reaction: yes.

    The teabagger stupidity levels have risen to Jim Jones levels only they'll want to spill innocent blood and riot against the U.N. and the evil socialist that Obama always was instead of spilling their own. Sometimes, I just want to throw a fucking dictionary at these morons, but given the average IQ, it's doubtful they'd even know where to begin.
