Comment: The source article states: "In the days following Trump's election, there were hundreds of threats against his life on social media. Twitter even allowed the #AssassinateTrump hashtag to trend on its site, as well as 'Rape Melania.' The liberal media said nothing; the moralizing feminists were silent. If President Barack Obama had been threatened in the same way as President Trump, the leftist press would have condemned it from the highest rooftops. But because the liberal media despise Trump, the real threats against him are censored."

"[Rush] Limbaugh hasn't had a natural erection since the Nixon Administration; think he's compensating for something? Now, I wouldn't pick on him for any of this stuff, not his blubbiness, not his man-boobs, not his inability to have a natural erection -- none of that stuff -- to me, off limits until! Until! Mr. Limbaugh, you turn that sort of gun on somebody else. Once you start doing that, you're fair game, fat boy. Absolutely, you jiggly pile of mess. [. . .] [You look like] the unholy spawn of Tony Soprano and the Michelin Man."

Said on his talk show May 15, 2009, after Rush made fun of Nancy Pelosi's Botox shots.

Comment: Five days after his sweet talk quoted here, he said, "Some horrifyingly intense America-hater like Rush limbaugh, who appears to be morphing into, seriously, he is morphing into Jabba the Hutt. I've seen some recent video, this guy is enormous. He just keeps bloating up. It's just -- I hope he keeps going, because eventually he will croak. Like I said, eventually, he will choke to death on his own throat fat." (There goes that liberal compassion again, hoping for the death of a conservative.)

Comment: This kind of thinking is in total alignment with the thinking of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel’s brother, Ezekiel Emanuel (Obama OMB health policy adviser): "When implemented, the Complete Lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated… The Complete Lives system justifies preference to younger people because of priority to the worst-off rather than instrumental value." [This curve illustrates the Complete Lives concept.]

Quote
"We talk about cost competitiveness, but the one thing we fail to talk about is those costs that you don't see on the bottom line. That is, coal makes us sick. Oil makes us sick. It's global warming. It's ruining our country. It's ruining our world. We've got to stop using fossil fuel. We have for generations taken it out of the earth -- carbon out of the earth -- put it in the atmosphere and it's making us all sick . . ."

John Ridley

Writer of novels, film and television, and PBS Commentator. His sixth novel was Those Who Walk in Darkness.
Quote
"Every president to hold office has espoused some version of Americanism . . . But for all their grand rhetoric, and mostly good deeds, none was able to seal the deal on the trifecta of equality, plurality and socioeconomic ascendancy.

Obama has. Obama is the more perfect union. He is a house united. Obama is the new generation and the hot light of a dawn that goes way beyond clever phraseology of ‘Morning in America.’

"Quite simply, quite plainly, just by virtue of his being, Obama is America, and the first true American to lead our nation."

In commentary on the Internet. See video.

Comment: Mr. Ridley brushes over George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and all the other U.S. Presidents to proclaim Barack Obama the "first true American to lead our nation." This fanaticism is amazing and dangerous. Such blind faith and dedication to someone so inexperienced is a recipe for utter disaster. The writer will never be able to objectively examine Obama's policies and actions. He will only be able to swoon.

Comment: Well, the "best he can tell" is 100 percent wrong! We now know that the premise upon which the judge's decision was based has been proven to be absolutely false! So, that ends it, right? No, not with leftists. Facts never deter them in pursuit of their objectives. (eg: global warming.) They will do everything they can to discredit, belittle, embarrass, obstruct, and intimidate the president of the United States . . . if he's a Republican.

A radical social activist during the 1960s and 1970s, he began to demonstrate on behalf of various left-wing causes after dropping out of Berkeley. Rubin organized the Vietnam Day Committee, led some of the first protests against the war in Vietnam, and was one of the founding members of the Youth International Party or Yippies, along with social and political activist Abbie Hoffman. He was one of the Chicago Seven, and along with six other defendants, was found not guilty on the charge of conspiracy but guilty (with four other defendants) on the charge of incitement. He was sentenced by the judge to more than three years in prison for contempt of court, but all the convictions for incitement were later thrown out by an appeals court.

A car swerved to miss him, but a second car, immediately behind the first, did not. Rubin was taken to the UCLA Medical Center, where he died 14 days later.
