Just a little ammunition for the folks who are feigning outrage over a couple of anti-Obama posters at last week’s Washington rally and other events….
Just for the record, the sign said “Bury OBAMACARE with Kennedy.” NOT “Bury Barack Obama” as leftie pundits and a former President who should have retired to his peanut farm a long time ago have claimed…
Funny how the mainstream media never had any outrage to spare for disgusting attacks and even calls for the murder of a Republican President….but slap a Hitler mustache on Obama’s face and suddenly the world is ending. Funny how the left thought it was FUNNY when the face behind the Hitler mustache belonged to George W Bush….
It’s also funny how dissent is NO LONGER patriotic, like it was when Bush was in office….kind of like “dissent is good if it’s OUR dissent, but horrible if it’s THEIR dissent.”
And for those who say to you “So why didn’t you protest BUSH?” as if that somehow casts doubt on your sincerity now, ask them why THEY didn’t get their undies all in a bunch over calls for Bush’s murder? DBR))

There are literally hundreds of videos currently viewable on YouTube of Bush being burned in effigy.

This sign from a protest in Chicago says “Lee Harvey, where are you?” at the bottom, referring to JFK’s assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
The anti-Israel conspiracy site nogw.com hosts this pdf file which describes a mock trial and execution of George Bush for a bizarre litany of purported crimes; included in the document is this image of Bush being hanged at the trial.
On August 4, 2000, when Bush won the Republican nomination (but before he was president), Craig Kilborn on CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn ran a graphic of the words “SNIPERS WANTED” under George Bush as he gave his acceptance speech. Although CBS belatedly apologized five days later, Kilborn was never investigated, questioned or punished, and continued to host the show for four more years.
Look at the two pictures above. Which do you find more offensive? Which is more obviously a threat to kill or disrespect a president?
For a while, CafePress allowed violent anti-Bush paraphernalia (such as this “Kill Bush” shirt) to be sold by users on its site, but after they were publicized by the Drudge Report, they were pulled offline; though, as far as I can tell, the designers were never investigated by the Secret Service.
