Civilized America?

Checking Twitter feeds this morning, we discovered that threats to riot on behalf of Obama supporters are still flooding in, with the users seemingly unaware of the fact that the media has now picked up on the buzz. We checked the Twitter accounts and virtually all of them are owned by people who have made hundreds or thousands of previous tweets, proving they are genuine accounts and not fakes. Examples of what people are saying include the following; “If obama dont get re-elected & romney wins .. on life every white persons getting pistol whipped and im startin a riot.” (SOURCE) “If Obama don’t win lets start a riot so Romney know what he’s getting himself into.” (SOURCE) “You know you ain’t sh*t if you gotta “MAKE” Mafukas vote for ROMNEY ! …. Mannnn OBAMA better get back in office . Or BLACK FOLKS will riot.” (SOURCE) “If Romney wins im goin on a rampage.” (SOURCE) “If Mitt Romney wins the election I think its our duties as Black folks to riot and f*ck sh*t up.” (SOURCE) “If every action IS met with an equal and opposite reaction ..what should workers do to employers if Romney’s elected? #Riot in the streets!!” (SOURCE) “If Romney becomes president let’s all start a riot.” (SOURCE) “I Heard Mitt Romney , Tryna Take Away Food Stamps , If He Do .”IMA START A RIOT , IMA START A RIOT.” (SOURCE) “If romney wins, imma start a mf’n riot! Rns.” (SOURCE) http://www.infowars.com/new-threats-to-riot-if-obama-loses-election/ Wow is all I can say to this. If it were one or two crazies, I wouldn't even remark, but wow is all I can say. So we have come to this?

Civilization is falling apart. And the progressive liberals are at the vanguard of it's destruction.

No kidding. This is the tone set. This is what happens when you purposely divide a country.

No lilwonders, the socialists divide the country into classes and minorities are told that they have NO CHANCE, the poor are told they NEED the government to protect them from the evil rich and women are made to think only the government can save them from the evil conservatives.

That people are threatening riots? yes that is why I posted this. That it is uncalled for and despicable? yes that is why I posted this. That there are far too many nuts out there? Yes that is why I posted this.

I do believe that if Obama wins riots are VERY likely. I'm not saying they'll be nationwide, but I think there's a high probability that riots will happen in areas where that kind of crap is common, and often tolerated by weak politicians. Keep your eyes on cities like Oakland and Philadelphia for riots. The mayor of Oakland went out of her way to placate the Occutards even when they were destroying storefronts and setting fires in the streets. Philadelphia is just filled with disgusting morons who will riot even when their team wins the world series.

Actually I kind of agree with Taskr for different reasons though. I think the riots will happen later though. Country has to get worse first, people will at least give Romney that long. Most people are fare unlike many of our hire ups!

Honestly, I think this election has been very extreme because both parties seem to be very extreme in their values, and that could be our countries downfall. Both parties need to learn to get along, and this should be about ideas and not party loyalties. Also, yes, I agree, people need to learn to be civil. It wouldn't be worth to riot over anything unless it is a huge injustice, and I don't think that this would be the case.

The two major parties are actually quite similar. they try to polarize the country, but they really are not that different. Now if you start looking to the outside parties, that is where you will find a difference.

I probably will not take it too serious on those twitter feeds, whoever come out as a winner will has peaceful transfer of power within this nation, a small group of people may turn to uncivilized manner to create small disturbance or issue for the election committee.

A sad state of affairs isn't it? As I mentioned in the post abve, I do not like the President's policies, but I would NEVER wish harm on him or his family. This so disturbing that so many feel this way. This is not how civilization handles things.

laglen.. I think this is just outrageous. I don't know what can be done, but I wish there were some punishment for these 'threats'..because that is what they are. Trying to bully people into submision has taken scare tactics to a whole new level and it needs to stop.

Actually threatening a candidate is a crime. They should be punished accordingly. Ya know, I do not like Obama, but I do NOT wish any harm to come to him or his family. I just want them to move out of the White House.

People do let passions get the best of them in an election year. I have seen normal nice people say and do some horrible things in defense of their candidate or party. Most of it is caused by all the demonizing and fearmongering that has become common place in our political process. Sad really. Will they riot? Who knows. I hope not. But it would be nice to see adults act like adults on all sides without the threats, cheap shots and other stupidity.

It's Twitter and Facebook and the rest of the digital world that has helped produce this stuff. People can throw out all kinds of nonsense under their masks of invented user names and think they can remain anonymous. I shudder at the state the country has entered through all of this.

Riots, martial law, not safe for Obama to hand over the presidency just yet... It's all possible. However, I do hope it's not a majority, that it's just some loudmouths on Twitter. I see some really horrible stuff on there all the time, but it's hard to know how much any one means of those 140 characters and how much is bravado.

Hello laglen, I don't know, i've watch the debates in youtube and before the first presidential and vice presidential debate of both parties. but what really caught my attention was really Ron Paul. the rest are just being traditional to me, sadly even for the likes of Obama himself. i think who ever wins, the corporates powers and manipulative media wins. I've watch CNN and Fox, they are both mainly one sided. except for some instance were CNN gives a chance for some republican representatives to speak out. In General, people are desperate, they don't know what to do anymore...some are even tired of protest. greed and too much politicking may have been the reason.

I guess I just do not understand why people are complaining about the "fat cats" the breaking of our country, the divide, the "class warfare" the "war on women" but claim it is Romney's fault. It is not Romney's fault. He was not President for the last 4 years, Obama was
