Apparently it’s not sufficient for Democratic National Convention delegates to call Republicans Nazis or even “Uncle Toms.”
Perhaps it’s just hyperbole brought on by the heat of the moment in Charlotte, but now there is a convention attendee who says she wants to do away with the Republican presidential nominee. And the threat was made on camera.
In the interview (see video below) for The Blaze website, the DNC delegate identifies herself as Julia Rodriguez from New York. “If I see [Romney], I would like to kill him,” she declared. She prefaced that statement with the pronouncement that “Romney will destroy this country.”
The Blaze asserts that “The exchange caught The Blaze by surprise and was as unscripted as it was bizarre and shocking.”
Separately, in response to Rep. Barney Frank referring to gay Republicans as Uncle Toms, the Log Cabin Republicans (a gay political group) released an extensive statement that set forth in part,
“As far as Log Cabin Republicans are concerned, it’s a badge of honor to be attacked by a partisan hack like Barney Frank…We expect this kind of bile from Barney, especially when it plays into the Obama campaign’s efforts to divide, distract and deceive the American people…. The truth is, by speaking conservative to conservative about gay rights, Log Cabin Republicans are doing some of the hardest work in the movement, work that liberals like Barney are unwilling to do and couldn’t do if they tried.”

Do you think this kind of incendiary rhetoric is doing the Democrats any good in terms of convincing undecided voters to support them in November?
