Twitter Ablaze With Death Threats for Romney. Media Remains Silent

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has been being threatened by the oh-so-peaceful-and-tolerant left. While Romney has been the target of numerous death threats for having the audacity to espouse a return to common sense government, the liberal media has remained deafeningly silent on the issue.

Okay, fine. If the mainstream media won’t do it, then we in the alternative media will have to do it ourselves.

So, who’s breaking this story and calling attention to the fact that a presidential candidate is receiving death threats? CNN? MSNBC? ABC? Nope, Twitchy. Yes, the alternative media site that discusses the trends of Twitter.

As I read through page after page of some of the most vile threats and ignorant, nearly-incomprehensible, low-grade garbage, I found myself wondering more and more, “Why is nobody discussing this?”

There seems to be an inherent unevenness when it comes to the rhetoric that each side is afforded. While the right focuses their anger at Obama on his poor job performance and socialist ideology, the left can drag race into the equation, calling Romney every name in the book, mocking the man’s religion and there seems be a no-holds-barred approach to the contempt spewed out towards Governor Romney.

Bill Maher, during Tuesday’s debate, as Romney answered a loaded question about women’s pay equality, tweeted, “Wow, Mitt had whole binders full of woman (sic). Just like a Morman (sic).” Classy.

And while Maher might be classless, at least he didn’t threaten the life of Romney. There are too numerous to mention, but here are just a few (Warning: Strong language)

“Imma KILL romney on God if he be president his white pussy ass Bitch”

“Me: If romney win we back to the cotton field Mother: shidd , Somebody better kill that motherfucker Me: Same Thing I was saying lmao— B R I A (@Freakadroid_)”

“Kick starter Campaign to assassinate Romney if he wins 2012. #fb—
dick jones (@IanDickJokes)”

“I aint gone lie… Food stamps the shit! I mite assasinate romney my damn self if he get elected ! I fuxx wit free 99 on the eats”

“IF ROMNEY GETS ELECTED AND TAKES AWAY MY FOOD STAMPS IMA SEND SOMEONE TO MURDER HIS ASS -.-— IG: judith_bossinx3 (@judithBossinx3)”

“if romney’s elected as president, I will personally assassinate him.—
Rihanna Taught Me (@breeziedeeznuts)”

“goodnight yall .. cause im getting ready to murder romney !—
intangiblebeauty (@AllHaleDeja_)”

“I’ll assasinate Romney before I become I become a slave… Yea come arrest me i sed it lol fuck that white faggot— Cougar Slayer (@Sm0keGudFucKGud)”

And that’s just a sampling of the kind of enlightened political dialogue the left offered on Twitter Tuesday night.

What bothers me about this is that there seems to be no mention of this in the media. The media can’t cover every lone whacko, sure, but this kind of dialogue is not coming from some radical fringe group, it’s coming from regular people, and the tacit complicity by leftist media personalities and celebrities is sickening.

Eva Longoria, the actress and co-chair of Obama’s re-election campaign retweeted, “I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Romney. You have to be stupid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic twat.” Way to engage in open political dialogue, Eva. You’re as classy as you are skilled as an actress.

Overall, I’m disappointed in this putrid rhetoric. But I am even more disappointed in yet another reaffirmation of such a blatant double standard. Imagine for just a second what would have happened if, at this stage in the election in 2008, these same tweets would have occurred, threatening Barack Obama. We would be hearing about it nonstop, 24/7 from now until the election.

If people are this desperate with 23 days until the election, the Secret Service better be on their toes on November 6th.

    These sick, illiterict , useless, slugs need to be locked up for threatening the life of a candidate for president. They need to get up off their lazy, dumb a** behigns and get a job. No more food stamps and no more able body people that can do work should get welfare. I don’t care if they have to live in a tent. People that are given these fee services will not better themselves unless they are forced to. These are the people that when the lights go out, they loot and rape, steal and murder the hardworking honest citizens of this country. They are not better then wild animals. If Obama loses the hardworking people of this country will have to protect themselves and their families from theses low life. All I can say is get ready, there comming.

      Romney thinks the hardworking citizens of this country are low life,especially women.He and his family made millions from the bailout given to the auto industry,while hardworking people lost their jobs, homes and their 401K..The day President Obama took office we lost 750 thousand jobs.Do you really think that was his fault.That was the fallout from having Republicans in office.They created this mess and then expected President Obama to fix everything in four years. It took years to create this mess and it will take years to fix it.

    I agree. Only one thing left to do….. Time to lay in a supply of ammo and guns and be ready to defend all you hold dear come Nov. 7. There will be violence no matter who wins the election (my prediction). IMHO
