Why have Barack Obama and Joe Biden stked the fires of hate so high that there would be an act of gun violence against the official McCain campaign bus only weeks before the election? Don’t they and their surrogates know that their extreme words could lead to such violence from their more unstable supporters??
We learned at this morning’s Stop Obama Rally here that the McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express came through town yesterday. It arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon. It had also been hit by an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns. There were reportedly no injuries and neither candidate was on board.
One local man who saw the damage and spoke with the McCain/Palin staffers said the attack(s) had occured in southern New Mexico that same day. The Express is traveling the country independent of the candidates, handing out campaign materials.
Now tell me, what would happen if the official Obama campaign bus were shot at, even without either of the Democrat candidates aboard? It would be front page news, with all sorts of condemnations of the Republicans for encouraging hatred, and restatements of the discredited stories about calls to kill Barack Obama being heard at GOP rallies.
But actual violence against the McCain campaign bus? The media apparently thinks there is nothing of importance in this news, and so won’t report it at all.
