#1 Just ignore this and listen to MSNBC's Matthews. Romney supporters are the ones that are racists. Just ignore the racist tweets. Nothing to see here....
Seriously, these idiots riot give them a whiff of grapeshot. Maybe they will learn something about cause and effect.

#2 Oh very pretty please DO riot! PLEASE give us a reason and justification to give you that whiff of grapeshot that DV mentioned.
Oh, and we are NOT racist, since we want to prove that we are capable of learning even from Obama and Alinsky the principle of not letting a crisis go to waste....

#3 Not only have Obama voters been making open threats that they will riot and cause mayhem, they have also been caught making direct threats to assassinate Mitt Romney
That's so islamicist.

#4 You recall the last time people* carried out their threats** if the election didn't go their way didn't quite get the results they were looking for. Then again, they don't teach real history anymore, just 'studies'.
* who just so happen to be Donks too.
** bombarding a federal military installation also didn't turn out well for the Japanese 80 year later.

#5 The rioters wanna burn and loot in their own neighborhoods? Let 'em. Save that whiff of grapeshot for when they try it in the suburbs.

#6 Chicago fall behind. Sniper(s) surface in Detroit?
Has links to the original newspaper reports. Lore has it neighborhoods banded together and set up check points.
From the comments: Hey, this is the KC Chamber of Commerce calling. Quit posting all this negativity about the City of Fountains. It's not like we're Detroit...

#10 Needs to be taken seriously. Debased leftards are notorious for this kind of stuff. And don't expect much security from the Obama regime.

#11 The 1967 Newark riots were a major civil disturbance that occurred in the city of Newark, New Jersey between July 12 and July 17, 1967. The six days of rioting, looting, and destruction left 26 dead and hundreds injured.
Same time, different place. I was actually there in the Central Ward when it started; buying some drum kit stuff at the music store that all the surrounding schools used. Thought someone had left over fire works, found out different.

#13 I was in D.C. in the days following the riots after Martin Luther King's assassination. Whole blocks in flames. Huge amount of lawlessness.
However, I noticed that the blocks the rioters burned were in their own neighborhoods. When we went up to the area around the National Cathedral to pick up another volunteer for one of the relief centers (which were on the edge of the burned-out area), you would have thought nothing had happened - nice sunny Palm Sunday, people walking around like normal. In the burned-out areas and around the federal buildings, an armed soldier on every corner.
I'm pretty sure that's the way it will happen the next time, too - at least in the states where it's legal for people to own guns. Anybody tries to come set my house on fire, they're going to get a fat surprise from my friends Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson.

I suspect any rioting will be confined to Blue areas, although you wouldn't want to be on the fringes. This may be a way for Detroit to get some urban renewal and more land for urban farming at the same time.

#15 History suggests that any anti-Romney black protests will be autonomous + limited to Watts, Harlem, + LA-style destructive riots.
OTOH, anti-Obama white protests or white militias will not only riot, BUT ARE LIKELY TO START SHOOTING AT US GOVTCRITTERS, be it Obama, Congress, andor Papercrats - IOW, TO DE FACTO ATTEMPT TO OVERTHROW THE GOVT???
This is what happens when Political Elites hide too many things too often from the electorate, e.g. installing OWG + "Global Federal Unions", etc. widout bothering to ask the Voters or Mainstream, lest we fergit aka "the People", iff they want it or to vote for same in popular referendums. POLITICO "HINTING" AT GLOBAL GOVT. IS NOT THE SAME AS DE FACTO "DESCRIBING" GLOBAL GOVT.
"SMART POLITICS" IS NOT ALWAYS PROPER OR GOOD LEADERSHIP, REPRESENTATIVE OR OTHERWISE REGARDLESS OF THE MERITS.
