“He don’t belong in political office. Blacks don’t belong in political office. He ought to be shot.”

These are the words of this man…

Three men high on methamphetamine were apprehended outside Denver after a routine traffic stop yielded scoped rifles, bulletproof vests, fake IDs, and walkie talkies. The men had been doing drugs in a hotel room and rambling about assassinating Barack Obama. As of this writing, they have been charged with drug and weapons offenses but are not being treated as would be terrorists by authorities.

Soon after the story broke, the w(r)ong wing blogosphere was abuzz about how this was probably a “set up” designed to benefit Obama. One fool even suggested that the suspects were probably Democrats. Unbelievable. These (r)epuke hacks are using this opportunity to push scare tactics on voters with talk of widespread rioting should Obama be shot. Of course, all of the rioters in their apocalyptic scenarios are black.

The police say that these men posed no credible threat to the candidate. The DNC is certainly a fortified event and these three clowns would likely have never gotten very close to Barack. But is that any reason to discount the threat they posed and argue that it is just a ploy for votes? Of course not.
