Threat Update


"Obama’s Campaign of Threats to Superdelegates
Specter of Violence Raised to Drive Lemmings

A major fundraiser for the Obama campaign who conducts regular conference calls with his staff has been interrupting Hillary Clinton events for nearly two years. Her organization has joined with a radical group that is threatening massive, unspecified protest actions in Denver if Hillary seizes the nomination. Now, Obama’s official mouthpiece warns that he could deploy these forces even sooner with the click of a button.

For the first time, a paid staffer of the Obama campaign appeared inspired by the ominous language of shadowy pro-Obama protest groups like “Recreate ‘68.” Spokesman David Plouffe told Politico the following on 5/28:

“We are not encouraging our people to gather and protest on Saturday,” he said. “With the click of a mouse it would be pretty easy for us in the Mid-Atlantic to gather thousands of people...”

One thing the protesters should in mind that for sure is not like '68 is that we are all now enduring the Patriot Act and while they will probably get away with disrupting the Democratic convention (keep in mind also, you are in Denver, not exactly friendly territory for people who could well be cast as terrorists), I certainly wouldn't recommend those tactics with the GOP.
