Judging from these two stories, the loony-toon tree is being shaken pretty hard out in Denver and the nuts are falling to Earth.
First, Alex Jones of InfoWars was caught on video stalking and harassing Michelle Malkin outside the Denver Mint. Evidently that’s Alex’s idea of being clever and accomplishing something for his cause. Wrong. What a pompous fool. Agree with Michelle or not, she deserves some respect for trying to do what she thinks is right and the freedom to do her job in peace.
Second, 4 presumed white supremacists were arrested on drug and weapons charges in what one of the men admitted was a plot to kill Barack Obama at the convention.
Sources told CBS4 police found two high-powered, scoped rifles in the car along with camouflage clothing, walkie-talkies, wigs, a bulletproof vest, a spotting scope, licenses in the names of other people and 44 grams of methamphetamine.
Nathan Johnson, 32, was also arrested. He told authorities that the two men “planned to kill Barack Obama at his acceptance speech.”
Sounds like the plot, and the Nazi wannabes, might have been half-baked. Even so, Americans shouldn’t take Barack Obama’s safety for granted. Pray for him, even if you’re a die-hard Republican.
Like Malkin, Obama has the right to do and say exactly what he wants without fear of bodily injury, without having to endure streams of verbal abuse. The fact that I disagree with everything he stands for – and I do disagree, as you know – does not give me the right to harm him.
This fact is so elementary, so fundamental that it’s a slap in the face to be reminded that I live side-by-side with so many morons who clearly don’t understand the singular principle that underlies the American way of life.
