Was Sarah Palin Campaigning in North Carolina?

Disgusting:

The carcass of a black bear that had been shot in the head was found wrapped in Barack Obama campaign signs on a North Carolina campus on Monday.

 

Western Carolina University Campus Police Chief Tom Johnson said that officers were called about a dead bear on campus at about 7:45 a.m.

 

When the officers found the bear carcass, they said it was covered with two campaign signs that had been taped together. 

Death threats over yard signs, tires slashed at Obama rallies, racist fliers put out by state GOPs, and now this. I’m not sure what to say, but given Palin’s attacks on Obama and the fact that it appears likely that Obama will win, some of McCain’s wingiest nuts are starting to lash out. 

My fear is that this kind of crap will be taken to the next level where Obama supporters are physically attacked or worse.

  1. And this stuff is not happening to McCain? There was a bullet hole in his Straight Talk Express bus. I don’t condone the behavior towards either candidate, but it certainly isn’t limited to one side. It also doesn’t help to be screaming r@cist every time someone does something against Obama. He’s a candidate for office.

  2. First of all, I’m a student at Western Carolina University. I saw the pictures that were taken by the University Police at the scene of the crime. This was absolutely an expression of the ignorant rascisim that sadly plagues this part of the country. As for the straight talk express, that thing derailed years ago. This kind of thing is not happening to John McCain, in fact, The McCain Campaign is not only creating, but fueling this kind of hate speech through their use of emotional argument. They’ve not only insinuated, but directly implied that Obama is a terrorist, a muslim, and a socialist. Not only that, but Sarah Palin has encouraged her supporters to Kill Mr. Obama.
    You’re an idiot if you think that this kind of hate is found on both sides of this campaign. It’s only republicans, and it’s only the fucking ignorant ones who think violence solves problems. Don’t talk about things you have no fucking clue about. I live here, I’m terrified, and If Barack Obama is beaten by this hate mongering racist old timer, and that relentless bitch from alaska who can’t seem to shut her big fucking mouth, I swear that I will wash my hands of this country of pigs and never set foot across these boarders again.
    America is a nation full of ignorant racist rednecks, and I’m getting sick of it.

    Amen.

    Why don’t you leave the country now? You and Obama can start a socialist society in Cuba Raul would welcome you or maybe Chavez would let you stay with him in Venezuela…Russia, IRAN…I’m sure you could find a great place to live there, and I hear they have excellent Colleges too! You could really get a great education.

    I like many McCain supporters don’t like Obama because he is Black (Like the media portrays). To me he looks more muslim/blackish/brownish/white anyway but whatever his real race is I don’t care. I think he is a big pansy and not up to the job plus I like capitalism, and I LOVE a beautiful woman, that hunts, is against abortion, and is an excellent mother…Sarah Palin, sooo glad Hillary Clinton is off the political scene, talk about a scary VP, YIKES.

  5. Why don’t you leave the country now?

    MY country as much as yours. Why don’t YOU get out since you are about to LOSE?

    You and Obama can start a socialist society in Cuba Raul would welcome you or maybe Chavez would let you stay with him in Venezuela…Russia, IRAN…I’m sure you could find a great place to live there, and I hear they have excellent Colleges too!

    Too bad us liberals crushed fascism, because if we hadn’t then you might have a place to go.

    You could really get a great education.

    Yea, let us know when you get even a half decent one.

    I like many McCain supporters don’t like Obama because he is Black (Like the media portrays).

    Is this honesty or just an utter lack of ability to make a coherent statement in the English language?

    To me he looks more muslim/blackish/brownish/white anyway but whatever his real race is I don’t care.

    English! Do. You. Speak. It?

    I think he is a big pansy and not up to the job plus I like capitalism…

    Commas are not a crime.

    …and I LOVE a beautiful woman, that hunts, is against abortion, and is an excellent mother… Sarah Palin

    Biblically or is this just an infantile crush?

    sooo glad Hillary Clinton is off the political scene, talk about a scary VP, YIKES.

    Yes, the Senator from New York is “off the political scene”.

    Moron.

  6. Wow, this thread has been more animosity-laden than I feared. Parker, GB, Sarcastro, I got your backs.

    It’s amusing to see the vitriol from the right coming down on this blog that very few people read.

    Hungtinton, opposing Obama on policy issues does not make one a racist. People of all colors can oppose Obama for a number of issues…and they racists in no ways. People who shoot bears and put Obama signs on the dead bears are racists, just as people who hang ghosts on their tress with upside down Obama signs are racists. And I hadn’t heard about the gun shot in the Obama bus. If that’s true, it’s more than loathesome. But I have been to an Obama rally, and I plan on going to another on Thursday…if I hear one person from the audience call McCain a terrorist or suggest that we ought to kill McCain, I will vote for the GOP nominee. There might be some vitriol coming from the Obama side, but I can’t imagine that it’s the violent hatred we hear from your side.

    And Joey seems to think that those who don’t agree with Joey need to leave the country.

    Joey, there are millions of great Americans who don’t agree with you on issues or candidates who are as patriotic as you are and who love this country as much as you do.

    You don’t like Obama because he is black? Fine, don’t vote for him.

    But don’t try to justify your racism. In this country, you are allowed to be a racist jerk, and I won’t suggest that you should go back to Nazi Germany.

    But geez.

  7. Joey, I’ve got to thank you. Because in your barely literate screed, you have perfectly encapsulated everything that is wrong with this some of the people in this country. From your blatant racism, to your tenuous grasp on the facts, to your only passing familiarity with the English language – it’s all right there. Happily, it seems there aren’t enough of you to put Senator McCain in the White House. So, it’s back to Washington for the Senator, where he can try to look people in the eye. And Sarah Palin can return to her full-time job of embarrassing herself and generally fucking up on a much smaller stage. Note to any Alaskans reading this: examine whether or not your state statutes permit a recall of any sort. Just throwing it out there – think it over.

    I enjoy a good and healthy debate as much as anyone. And I’d love to engage you in one. But there’s no substance to what you say; in the words of Gertrude Stein, there’s no there there.

    The great thing about this country is that you can vote for anyone for whatever reason/s you decide. And it appears that you’ve opted to vote for John McCain because of how Barack Obama looks, or some such thing. Have at it. This is the core of the coalition that John McCain has assembled. Win or lose, he’s dishonored himself and the many decent conservatives out there. I hope he can live with himself.

  8. Well, that’s the thing, isn’t it? The racists are about to lose, are getting hopping mad, and worse yet, are being whipped into a froth by their ‘leadership’. All it would take is a crazy or two with a sniper rifle and scope.

    Very chilling times we live in. You’d think that McSame would reign in the fringe parts rather than encourage them.
