McCain Supporters in Pottsville Shout “Bomb Obama” and Hate-Filled Speeches

More of John McCain supporters, this time at Pottsville, Pennsylvania. October 27, 2008.

This is a report from Keystone Progress.

In what has become a regular occurrence, dozens of supporters of Senator John McCain shouted racist and hate-filled speech at about 100 demonstrators yesterday in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.

One of the McCain supporters was caught on video shouting “Bomb Obama!” repeatedly. When asked what he meant, he said “Get rid of him. I’ve had a number of people in the… when he gets in the White House…”

He then formed a gun with his hand and made a shooting sound.

The incident was reported immediately to Pottsville Police Captain Richard Wojciechowsky, who said it did not sound serious. The video later was shown to the Secret Service.

A great quote from Martin Luther King Jr. on racism:

“Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away, and that in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.”

  1. Thank you Freedom for this thread and clip..We, our country has been shoved back to the 50’s and earlier because of the hate speech and lie’s of the reich…Dangerious time’s have returned…Ugh!…Time to light more candle’s….Blessings all.

  2. I only got to the 2:31 mark and stopped it. For me, this is too personal. This election is tearing my family apart, since my Wife and I support Obama and my Mother and Brother supports McCain.

    I fear for this countries future.

    May the Goddess Athena grant us the wisdom to see our way clear.
