    Again, if you think that today's political situation is remotely analogous to any of those, then there's no point in continuing this conversation.

    Well, you know, these things don't just happen in a vacume. First it starts out slowly with the hate propaganda that constantly harranges the populus over the head with buzzwords like "communist, socialist, and anti-government" rhetoric. Then the propaganda attracts a following and grows into a swath of the populus and then it doesn't take long before the propaganda turns into nationalism and the populace start to target a minority to demonize, which is usually people ethnicity in the community. Then as the populus gets all worked up in a nationalist frenzy, soon they want to change the government to fit their new faux ideology and if not stopped the next you know there is oppression, fascism or worse. And quite frankly, we're at the point where the nationalist are trying to take over the government. So you see, you can label large swaths of the populace as dangerous.

    When I alluded to assassination, I was referring to the people who made the threat.

    Strange... how I could do business with Jewish folks, listen to Mark Levin... a Jew... who is the one I learned his last name from.

    Nice try... you go back on your pony and keep searching.

    I think the event will just be a circus .... making fun of our country and its citizens in the midst of the giants who made this country great. Making fun of an event (Restoring Honor) that was nothing but inspirational singing, great speakers and honoring those who do good things in our country. Making fun of that won't resonate with the majority of the people in America. I think most people will find it stupid and maybe even disrespectful.
    And that's the beauty of it a couple days before the election.

    It could gain status in some dictionaries as an example of "backfire".

    You were close... let me edit your post for you; it should read:

    It was still a suspicious method for using the man's last name. It either sounded as if you wanted to make sure people knew that you were aware of his past name (and thus seemingly irrelevant), or as if you were using that as a focal point for controversy (and thus bigoted).

    I have to admit people's use of Obama's full name, or your use of Stewart's technical name, in a conversation where it is unnecessary suggests to me a more mischievous intent. But I'll wait for a rebuttal.
    Any comment?

    If credible, there's nothing wrong with a side making such a proclamation.

    hasn't that been the argument?

    Except it's not credible.

    It's the argument that's been perpetuated by people with no sense of perspective.

    Why not? Hot button issues becomes the focal point of some elections... The economy/employment will be the driving force behind the up-coming November elections, and there will be those that decide a party is dangerous for the current state of the country. Based on plenty of time to observe party strategy, explain how making such a determination wouldn't be credible.
