Urging Readers to "Kill the Judge" and "Kill Zimmerman" in Trayvon Martin Online Comments

Where is Obama, "Mr. Civility?"

For years, President Obama has been lecturing the country on political civility. Well, maybe not the entire country. He seems to exempt his political supporters from the same standard of speech he demands of Republicans. We all remember the one way finger pointing directed at conservatives in the wake of the massacre in Arizona where six died and former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was so grievously injured. Obama was on hand for the memorial where he said “it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.”

Just six weeks ago Obama waded into the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke contraception controversy  admonishing Rush by saying “All decent folks can agree, that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse." Of course he completely ignored the much more vile and hateful remarks of fellow Dems and campaign contributors.

Will Obama repeat his admonishment now that online conversations are demanding that the Judge who granted bail to George Zimmerman , charged with killing Trayvon Martin, be killed along with Zimmerman? Don't hold your breath.

Here's the story from the Weekly Standard:
Writing on a Twitter, someone named @Rick_Cobain writes, "Zimmerman released from jail someone kill the judge!!!!!"
Already 25 other people have retweeted @Rick_Cobain's call for murder.
And on Twitter:

George Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bail late Sunday night in what the Associated Press called a “low-key event.” Threats of death from the Twitter lynch mob were anything but low-key.
Others hoped someone else would take out Zimmerman so they wouldn’t have to dirty their hands.
One genius called for the mob to murder Zimmerman because she thinks charges just disappear when someone makes bail.
That last comment typifies the kind of blind, willful ignorance and hate which is the hallmark of this online lynch mob. And it's a safe bet that most of the people writing these comments also support Obama. So, that might explain why we don't expect to hear Obama condemn these kinds of statements.

Calling for a judge or a charged defendant to be killed is the same sort of mob justice that the Ku Klux Klan specialized in. Reading the comments above you just saw the face of the new KKK and once again, it's the "terrorist arm of the Democrat Party."
