    foxmuldar,

    We don’t do that here. Only commies and deranged sociopaths assassinate their opposition. As much as I despise our marxist president the unlawful taking of another life is evil regardless of the reasons. That’s what people in the weather underground and black panthers would want to do (and did).

    Why did he resign? He survived. Ronald Reagan was an inch away from death and his response was “I forgot to duck.”

    If it really happen to Traitor in Chief he died, later being possess by Satan and started to become more eerie. I not sure his secret service agents will allow it because there was once Patriot was visited by Traitor in Chief Secret Service Agents scared of threats assassination of Traitor in Chief Beforeitsnews.

    By resigning, he gave the opposition their victory. What a shame….

  • Highlander

    And I know they probably needed to interrogate him, but it sure would have been fun to just stand back and let the crowd beat him to death …

    On #6: It is never good to repay evil with evil but to pray for those who persecute us. It is far easier, better, and righteous for God to change the person’s heart than it is to take matters into our own hands. That way of thinking was also how Judas thought.

    Yawn. Muslim-on-Muslim terrorism. Muslims didn’t like their chose Muslim representative, tried to kill him, didn’t, but were ultimately successful with the attempt since the guy resigned out of fear.

    Somewhat off topic, it’s actions like this that cause politicians to ‘justify’ “tweaks” in laws prohibiting free speech/protests (this is a good piece detailing what was in H.R. 357 to change existing protest laws). Slate:

    Occupy, hardest hit.

    But the biggest question in the liberals minds is: Exactly how can we use this to blame the NRA?
    I am sure they will come up with something.

    I see, we should have prayed for the Naxis then….yeah, that would have worked out well….yeah, that’s what God would have wanted…..pacifist blind fools…

    Do we know the brand of the gun, so that I can avoid purchasing it?

    #1 AfghanVet “Gotta love the ass whooping he got.”

    Lots of reader comments at the Daily Mail objecting to that. Seems they see a moral equivalence between attempted murder and beating up the assassin. Such dopy thinking explains the sorry state of Britain…but we have lots of hand-wringing fools here in America too.

  • Jet Jaguar

    Juiceman,
    I didn’t say to not be prepared to defend oneself from criminals or tyrants. I just dropped some serious $$$ for several firearms and ammo and plan on getting my CHL. Plus my sons and I have trained in the martial arts (including weapons) for years. I do not consider myself a pacifist, but I will always seek to exhaust all peaceful remedies first. Then to use the least harmful options after that. Killing is the last choice that is forced upon us by another’s actions. In these darkening days, we all should be prepared for that last choice, but we all should desperately pray that we’ll never have to make it. I have never killed anyone but I understand that it’ll damage the person, even if it’s a righteous kill. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to find out what that’s like.

    they are not only preparing for the pitchfork storming of the
    Bastille, but the deliberate methodical provocation thereof..

  • Objective Analysis

    How in the world the guy get buy securities? That is what the guy is thinking. Someone must have wanted him to be killed and that is why he resigned. You can’t trust anyone if your bodyguards let this assassin get through.

  • All I could do was chuckle and thought “Not a pair of handcuffs among them huh??” LOL

    Сега всичките ритни-делегатковци на съд. Има предостатъчно кадри и снимки! Да видим дали ще има оставки в НСО и дали онези дебелаци-дъртаци, дето скачаха по нападателя и го ритаха в главата ще бъдат наказани. Щото нали ако сме правова държава това си е насилие и произвол. Има си закони, нека нападателят да бъде съден, но не и пребиван от бой на обществено място

    [Now all of the kick-delegatkovtsi court. There is plenty of footage and
    photos! Let’s see if there will be resignations NGOs and whether those
    fat men-dartatsi where he jumped on the attacker and kicked him in the
    head will be punished. Cause you’re the rule of law if it’s violence and
    arbitrariness. There are laws that let the attacker to be tried, not
    beaten to death in a public place]

    i tend to agree..

    Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that this little “event” was designed to imbue the Obama inaugural coverage with the theme of assassination? (i.e. to provoke the opportunity for government trolls to jump online and provoke discussions about shooting political officials, which would strengthen the case for gun grabbing legislation, and create legal basis for extending their investigative tentacles into the lives of anyone who would make comments about it.
