why is it EVERYTHING in the left wing world is selective? when YOU do it's fine, when it's done TO YOU it's an abomination.
Because, without the double standard, they've have none at all. They're just pathetic creatures to be pitied, derided then shoved in front of the nearest 'Death Panel"

you mean like letterman did on national tv?
Hey stoopit Birther cretin: Nobody joked about Palin's spawn getting raped. Ignorant, "abstinent" educated Bristol gave it up willingly before marriage, and it was an hilarious object lesson in the idiocy and irrationality of right wing social policies.(As for which little slut daughter was at the ballgame - the writer's didn't keep careful "Track" [sic] and who cares anyway? The point is clear enough.)

Secondly, jokes about "abistinent" educated sluts are not illegal. Threatening the President is illegal. Your invocation of the First Amendment on any issue of threatening violence, not only against the President, shows you to be a Birther-mongoloid "thinker." Why can't you hom skooled bigots stfu until you have something the tiniest bit reality based to contribute? Huh? Why not, Jethro?

Enough with those who continue to spew racist remarks! Or who try to incite harm to others!!!!!!!!!!
We are in the year 2009 and people you may not like minorities but they are here to stay! So get over it or maybe you need to go steal another country!!!!!!
Jail him!? For offensive recieving and sending offensive e-mail jokes?!

Apparently you're a big supporter of the thought police, but last I checked it wasn't illegal to have a bad sense of humor or even to be a racist.

These right-wingers devastated this nation over the past 8 years with one failed policy after another and then when the American people wake up and come out in record numbers to kick the GOP out of power and landslide the first African-American into the Presidency... they fantasize, joke about, and wish for this President to be assassinated.
Right-wingers are unpatriotic and evil; and the Secret Service should take down anyone who even jokes about something like that. This is just more proof why we should never allow the right to have any power in this country. The majority of them are ignorant, bigoted and racist. And on top of all of that, they can't govern.
Wow! Pat you're a little bit over the top. There was no wish for the President to be assassinated. Geesh. Get a grip on life. I would agree it isn't appropriate for a councilman, but you're just way over the top.

Okay, I recognize two of these jokes and they have been going around in mass e-mails. Big freaking deal. If you think these are violent messages to do anyone harm ya'll ought to have your head examined. But I'm sure all of you that want this guy jailed so no big deal in the lefties putting out a poster of Bush with the header "Wanted-Dead or Alive". Hypocracy is a wonderful thing.

You forget. Those who were calling Bush a "Chimp" were white. Those that depicted him as a chimp on photographs were white. Just google it.
So in your world only blacks can criticize Barry then?

Incredible thought process.

What's next, only ultra-liberals being able criticize him?

Last time I checked we have a bill of rights so unless Obama and his buddies have gotten rid of that yet, he is entitled to jokes.
The Bill of Rights is one thing. However, just stating about killing a President of the United States is a Federal Offense. What is people stuck on stupid now at days.

Their is a difference legally about a statement with intent versus a statement without intent. The joke is a statement without intent. Also I could care less if someone talks about killing someone as long as they do not take actions to carry it out.

We are talking about any President of the United States. It's the law!!!Just that simple. It is not based on race! Any United States President. If you don't like it go to law school and re-write the laws!

I just told you the law on prosecuting. You can be arrested or detained which means nothing if they cannot successfully prosecute. Also a joke is not a threat.
