I can't believe the lynch mob mentality now being heard at McCain rallies. I guess even McCain thought some of the yelling was over the top.

When Palin starts inciting the rabble rousing and the crowd starts yelling 'kill him' at what point does that become a hate crime?

I think that "crash" mccain loves this reaction from his supporters, and inside his heart feels the same way, and it kind of reminds me of old german footage I saw from the 1930s featuring a guy with a funny little mustache.

They have definitely let the geenie out of the bottle. Anyone see the clip of the town hall rally in MN??? Lady says Obama is an Arab. McCain then has to take the mic and say ...No, he's an American citizen. Now he's caught trying to difuse these wild sentiments caught on tape/film.
What a freakin' mess

I think Palin is encouraging them, and egging them on.

I think McCain is beginning to realize what a monster he has created.

He was booed by his supporters for defending Obama.

God, I'll be glad when all this is over.

I disagree. I don't think that McCain has any hate in his heart and I think he knows that the hate his followers are showing isn't helping him at all.


He may not have "hate" in his heart, but he is...an "angry" little man. His advisers can try to soften him up and make him seem "Presidential"...but his anger will surface...

This statement is exactly what is wrong with our politics and why there is little hope of improvement.

If Palin continues to encourage these sentiments and Obama actually is attacked, I'm going to pursue charges against her for hate crimes and hate speech if no one else does. That's wrong, wrong, wrong and it's only empowering the fringe lunatics of this country. McCain is not the man I once thought he was.

He's still the same, you just had a better opinion of him the less you knew about him.

I think a lot of what's driving this is McCain supporters who have nothing better to hang on to than an attack message. As a candidate, McCain has given them nothing else to be positive about. He's misplayed and misrun so many important issues, he's just giving the election to Obama.

I've also seen recent news reports of people at his town hall meetings getting somewhat aggressive with him directly about why he's not running a better campaign. The frustration of his lousy handling of the issues is bubbling up as anger within the ranks of his supporters. I'm sure they wish they had someone better to support, but they're stuck and not happy because of it.

I truly think McCain backed into the candidacy by default. No one wanted any of the other candidates and he was sort of 'none of the above'. Once he got in, the party really isn't behind him and his campaign has floundered from the beginning. People are blaming it on McCain and he certainly hasn't helped the situation by some of the gaffs he's made.

And Ron, I think you're right.....I just never really knew the real John McCain. I like who I thought he was better.

You see a rally you don't like, even one that is perhaps uglier than we would like and it reminds us of Nazi Germany? Please. Read a little history before you say a McCain rally reminds you of Hitler.

Oh come on. Is this America? The second you show me a clip of her saying "Attack Obama" then you will have a case. Can we all please step back and relax? Pursue Palin for hate speech? Because of vitriolic attacks on a political opponent? My God. Why don't we just repeal the first amendment?

I think the Republicans thought that after 8 years of George Bush, they didn't have a chance of winning this year. Somehow they wound up with McCain, sort of like a sacrificial lamb. I think Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee both had their eye on 2012. They ran this year because they had to, without thinking they might actually win.

McCain has turned out to be a terrible candidate, but there is nothing in his past that would make you think he was any better, really. Look at his record. This is not a man who knows how to keep his head about him.

I really think he is a troubled man. It has to be hard for him to know that he cracked under torture, while others did not, on top of the other personal issues he has described himself. One man who did not has criticized him, and called him a spoiled brat. I think this campaign is taking a personal toll on him and his health. I bet he wishes the campaign was already over, and he was back in Arizona recovering from his wounds.

A hate crime, also known as a bias crime, is a criminal offense committed against a person, property, or society that is motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin.


U.S. CODE

TITLE 18

PART I—CRIMES

(...)

CHAPTER 13—CIVIL RIGHTS

(c) Incitement Offense.— Whoever in a circumstance described in subsection (d) directly and publicly incites another to violate subsection (a) shall be fined not more than $500,000 or imprisoned not more than five years, or both
.


Personally I think should any harm befall Obama, a case could be made against Palin if she doesn't tone it down.

There are three things in the world that deserve no mercy, hypocrisy, fraud, and tyranny.” - Frederick W. Robertson

Everyone on the right ridiculed Obama a few months ago for talking about people in towns and cities that are in decay as being "bitter."

I think we are now seeing some of those people at McCain rallies across country.

They are bitter, and are lashing out at Obama.

Knew some people that were at that game. They amped up the music REALLY LOUD to drown out the boos. Those people (who have season tix) said they'd never heard the music up that loud ever.
