from these people:
And…another “storm” brews. For many weeks now, there have been
indications that the outcome of the Presidential election only days away
may trigger significant civil upheaval. It ain’t just “Twitter talk,”
which has definitely been there for some time, and can’t be ignored for
reasons recently stated in this blog. Before Hurricane Sandy hit, law
enforcement was already quietly planning for such a post-Election Day
contingency. Law enforcement agencies don’t do that unless they have
solid intelligence indicating a genuine risk.
When a 'former' Presidential advisor- Van Jones- talks about burning down what is left of cities if Obama loses, I'd say that yes, there is a genuine risk.
Updated: I could swear saw a note somewhere about Jones saying that, but can't find anything; I may have confused him with some of the other socialists and communists threatening to burn things down.
While searching ran across a thread at Fark about this, a couple of people agreeing that 'if democracy fails this way, I'll light a torch'; got that? If their guy loses the election it means 'democracy fails'... The mind reels at the level of stupid/ignorance/hatred involved.
