Apparently some people just do NOT kow the definition…
Of the word “threat”.
If you are one of these misguided people?
Let me help you out:
n.1. An expression of an intention to inflict pain, injury, evil, or punishment.2. An indication of impending danger or harm.3. One that is regarded as a possible danger
Get it? Got it? GOOD!
Believe it or not? One can criticize and no matter HOW much one might tilt their head…
[via Mediaite] Radio and television host Dr. Drew Pinsky recently interviewed comedian Jon Lovitz on Headline News where Lovitz defended comments he made about President Barack Obama’s push for higher taxes on Americans making the largest share of income. Pinsky
playfully[idiotically] accused an incredulous Lovitz of threatening the president and asked Lovitz if he had spoken with the Secret Service about the matter.
“The Secret Service is now out looking for you,” Pinsky opened the interview by asking Lovitz. “Did they come and talk to you?”
“No,” replied Lovitz.
“Well, you made some threats against the President,” said Pinsky. “No I didn’t. I didn’t make any threat,” Lovitz replied.
Lovitz went on to say that he said Obama was “lying” about the share of taxes that wealthy Americans pay.
“Saying that people in a certain tax bracket don’t pay their fair share of taxes – that’s not true,” said Lovitz. “47 percent of the country doesn’t pay any taxes because they can’t afford it and they have deductions.”
“So you have in a–$250,000 or more, you have a 35 percent federal tax and in California you have another 11 percent, that’s 46 percent,” Lovitz continued. “You have property tax, you have city tax, you have FICA, you have sales tax.”
When Pinsky said Lovitz was a “fat cat” who is “complaining,” Lovitz went on to clarify that he does not like Obama “saying those people in that category who came from nothing and worked hard and made something of themselves are now, they’re not paying their fair share of taxes.”
“It’s like the 1 percent versus the 99 percent,” concluded Lovitz. “He’s creating class warfare in a country with no class structure.” [Read More] [Read another take on the incident at Big Hollywood, HERE!]
It does NOT constitute a threat.
If one actually wants to see a threat…
One which obviously go un-investigated, for reasons that are beyond my capacity for understanding?
Here you go.
[via The Blaze] Minister Louis Farrakhan’s recent Saviours’ Day Convention address, given to a packed United Center in Chicago this past February, carried with it some gruesome predictions about our president’s second term fate.
“Now the anger of the South – the Red States – against Obama is the same anger is the same anger the southerners had with President Lincoln. And this hatred ultimately combined with Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which led to his assassination. The negative atmosphere and hatred against President Obama has created a climate for his assassination.”
The Nation of Islam leader got more specific with exactly who would be killing the President, calling out the Tea Party and Republicans specifically.
“If our brother wins, and I believe he will, the anger of those hardcore racists, the Tea Party zealots and the Republicans who want to make him a one-term president will be such that perhaps a patsy or two is already being prepared as in the case of John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, James Earl Ray.”
The Minister finishes by declaring the assassination conspiracy will involve a Muslim patsy that has already been chosen.
“I believe they want a Muslim to kill President Obama. And I believe they may already have somebody in mind that they working on.” [Read More - Click HERE for exclusive video!]
Obvious threat. [Especially seeing as how just under a year ago, this same man was calling Obama a "murderer/assassin" Awkward.]
And now, if only the Secret Service can get their attention off the prostitutes, of which they apparently surround themselves with, and focus on the job at hand…
You know, PROTECTING THE POTUS!
They could easily figure this out, by not become the patsies they are obviously being positioned to be should anything truly dire happen.
Look away from the prostitutes, Secret Service, and PAY ATTENTION…
