So today in Subway me and a friend were gettin some food and a couple guys in the line were joking about how they hope he gets shot and how he is going to destroy America...and this is in NYC, a place that overwhelmingly voted for Obama..I was abit shocked, but after I looked on Wikipedia I realised McCain was supported heavily in almost every Southern State and even many north states in the Midwest. If a overwhelmingly blue state like NY is breeding this kind of hatred only 1 day after his election, I don't even know what to think some of the extreme people in Virginia, Texas, Alabama etc are saying, planning/plotting.

I think sadly Obama won't live through his first term. In a way its perfect irony, because being the first African American president is a huge win for the black community and everyone else who believes in progressive change for that matter, and now sadly we are going to be set back 150 years to a time when blacks were killed for having an opinion. Me and my friend immediately starting tripping out because the Civil war that would result would be insane..and all because of one or two loonies.


Thoughts?

lots of attempts and plans? yes

someone actually having the balls and the brains to do it? very unlikely

I REALLY hope he doesn't get assassinated, but I'm sure there will be plenty attempts. Racism will always be around, and there will always be someone who takes it way too far.
#6
for sure he's a target. it could happen.
To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

he's pretty well protected.....security wise..but mebe...we'll have to see

There might be a few attempts, but I think that security is expecting a higher threat level and will adjust accordingly.

Im pretty sure there will atleast be an attempt, wether it suceeds or not however. . .

EDIT: Another attempt, I think there was already one a while ago.

There will be attempts I'm sure, but as was mentioned in the secret service thread yesterday, he will be heavily guarded, and the secret service are very good at their jobs. In short, there will be attempts, but I think he will survive.
#15
he will get asassinated (sp?) and it will set off a race war Biden will do a fair job but will still leave much to be fixed

This is my thoughts on it... the best things for the people that hate him to do is not kill him. Just think about, if Obama gets killed he is going to even become bigger than he was alive.


Point is that either way Obama wins.

honestly, it's one of my main concerns with Obama at the moment.

but you have to admit, secret service is everywhere and if they've kept Bush alive then i don't see why they wouldn't be able to keep Obama alive.

seriously I think every president in the past 20 years has had at least one assasination attempt, the secret service is very very good at what they do.

They will try, remember those skinheads from about a week ago? But Our next president is Half Kenyan, and from Hawaii. Which means, he surfs really fast, therefore, we no longer need a military, because wherever Barack Obama surfs, there is a Tsunami, and sometimes he goes so fast that he can carry the tsunami away from ally countries and over land to have it rain on enemy countries.
America, our next president is a superhero.

do you know how many people hated bush? no one assasinated his dumb ass.

and plus, most of the people that have the mindset that obama is going to ruin the country are either super rich republicans who have enough money to not care or dumb-as-rocks redneck white supremicists. they pose zero threat.
#28
well personnaly if he gets assassnated, things are gonna get far much worse then a cival war. im gonan ggo into that thory of 1012 all you athiest belive

the propehts or what ever sayed taht a great presidant would be assassnated, and immadltly fallwing a war would brake out. if this happens, this greaters the chance for 1012 to happen. I don't belive in it, but if every thing comes true then we r scrwed

Most likely not. It's hard enough to assassinate a President as is, no matter what those movies say. (i.e. Vantage Point)
So I'm sure that the Secret Service will beef up there security and protect him more because there is a definate possibility of an attempt.
Do I think it will succeed? No, I don't. I don't think anyone has enough brains to figure it out.

Obama won in the electoral and popular vote. More people like him. A lot of the blue areas are densely populated, and a lot of the red is spread out.

looking at it that way is stupid since it's the amount of people who voted and not the geographical area that matters.

You forgot to take in account that most of the states that supported McCain are not as populated as the ones that support Obama.

I live in Missouri, the epitome of the Midwest, and that kind of hatred exists here, because it exists everywhere, but just like in other parts of the country, it is a very scarcely held viewpoint, very uncommon. I'm not saying there aren't people with racist ideas and stereotypes, but those exist everywhere. The open KKK member who openly wants Obama dead is pretty much non-existent here. As for the South, I don't know, I don't live there. Racism is surely more prevalent in the South, but the region gets a bad rap because of an overblown stereotype.

Thats what I was thinking, plus, not only the massive civil war it would start, but also the fact he has 2 young children that would become permanently scarred and most likely become social activists setting back all the progression and work America has been going through.
