The Secret Service appears to be playing politics by ignoringthreats of riots and violence against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made by leftist filmmaker Michael Moore and the liberal group MoveOn.
The threat was made via a web ad video released earlier this week in which Moore and MoveOn hide behind elderly women who make scripted terrorist threats against Romney and the nation over the presidential election.
One woman is shown inciting riots if Romney defeats Democratic party President Barack Obama, “I want the Republican party to know, if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this mother****** down!” (Expletive edited from original.)
Another woman says she’ll attack Romney in his genitals, “If the Republicans steal this election, I am going to track down Mitt Romney and give him the world’s biggest ****-punch. What’s the matter sonny, you never heard that phrase, ****-punch? Right in the *******.” (Expletives deleted from original.)
Several phone calls to the Secret Service public affairs office about the threat to Romney, who is under their protection, over the past few days have not been returned. Detailed messages of inquiry were left with the voicemail of spokesman George Ogilvie.
A search of news sites shows no articles reporting a Secret Service investigation in to the threat.
Last April, conservative rock musician and outspoken Second Amendment activist Ted Nugent was investigated by the Secret Service within days of making an ambiguous comment about President Barack Obama.
Nugent was reported to have said at a National Rifle Association convention, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
After meeting with Nugent, the Secret Service issued a statement, "The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has been completed," Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told Yahoo News. "The issue has been resolved. The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."
Unlike Moore and MoveOn, Nugent did not make a threat of violence. Romney has been the subject of numerous threats, prompting the Secret Service to take to Twitter to encourage people to report threats.
While it highly unlikely the women in the ad would be able to fulfill their threats, Moore and MoveOn are inciting violence against Romney and riots over the election.
Is the Secret Service playing politics by not investigating the ad? It would appear so. In 2004 Moore was a guest of honor at the Democrats’ convention, being seated in a special box with former President Jimmy Carter. MoveOn is a well-funded ally of the Democrat party.
There has been no statement from the Obama campaign or administration denouncing the threats of violence against the president’s chief political rival and riots by Moore and MoveOn.
Total hypocrites!!!!!!!!!! Moore is a fat pig to put it bluntly! He is nothing but scum!! I suspect when Romeny gets in the Secret Service may also be overhauled which it should be! Looks at all of the %#&!*% tactics the Secret Service has been involved in over the past year!!
What a total laugh. Makes them look like the ignoramus's they are. Boring cowards hiding behind the old folks for cover. That's par, since they're willing to put the decision of the worthiness of their life in the govt's. hands, instead of their own or their families. I laughed when I read the part about voter suppression, and then the part about about stealing the election. Very funny indeed, since that is something the democratic party has already been known for, and supporting illegal and fraudulent votes.
