The sign also depicted a bullet hole, ringed with symbolic red blood.
Asked about the sign, the man carrying it responded, "I told the Secret Service it is for everyone to interpret exactly how they want."
When asked how he interpreted the sign, the man who refused to be identified, said, "Gosh, I don't know."
"A guy with a badge wanted to know what the sign meant. I said I really did not understand -- it's just something that popped into my head."
That this man was left free to roam the streets by the authorities is shocking. But such sentiments are standard in the Leftist toolbox.
Could you imagine if a Republican expressed such a sentiment about John Kerry? How long would we hear about it in the media, and how quickly would the president be expected to denounce the sign. How fast would the protester have been hustled off to a cell and charged with a crime?
