From the UK’s Guardian, we get an opinion piece calling for the murder of the President of the United States:
On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod’s law dictates he’ll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr – where are you now that we need you?
That’s truly amazing. You need to sink to a depth of misplaced hatred previously reserved for the mentally ill in order to reach such a place. Can this be chalked up to a simple case of BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome)? To people like Brooker, there’s no difference between Usama bin Laden and George W. Bush. What is it about this President that evokes such feelings of murderous hatred among the unhinged left? And what’s next?
