Left Again Pushing Obama Assassination Theme


CBS Anchor's Question Causes Kennedy Brain Freeze

A theory created largely to smear Bill O'Reilly has now spread to CBS News, where anchor Harry Smith today rendered Ted Kennedy nearly speechless with a similar line of questioning regarding the potential for a Barack Obama assassination.

This reckless prognostication began at the Huffington Post in early January, after O'Reilly's camera shot was blocked by one of Obama's aides in New Hampshire. See our previous coverage here, which includes more of HuffPo blogger Robert Brustein's moonbat theory, reprinted below:

The recent chilling encounter in New Hampshire between Bill O'Reilly and an Obama aide was a forecast of how easily mad dog media men can stimulate mad dog hit men.

In this case, O'Reilly played both roles. Because he believed Obama's aide to be standing in front of his camera, the O'Reilly Factor Factotum, his face distorted with rage, showered abuse on the 6'8" aide and physically shoved him out of his way.

On that occasion, the Secret Service moved in quickly to cart the offensive O'Reilly away from the scene of confrontation. But what safeguards do the government have in place to prevent some ravenous red state acolyte from deciding there is no place in American politics for a man with African blood?

Via Mark Finkelstein at Newsbusters, note how CBS anchor Harry Smith's line of questioning echoes that of the HuffPo:

HARRY SMITH: When you see that enthusiasm [for Obama] though, and when you see the generational change that seems to be taking place before our eyes, does it make you at all fearful?

Kennedy understandably had no idea what Smith was driving at, and gave an innocuous answer about people's desire for "a new day and a new generation." But Smith's follow-up left no real doubt as to what he had in mind.

SMITH: I just, I think what I was trying to say is, sometimes agents of change end up being targets, as you well know, and that was why I was asking if you were at all fearful of that.

Via YouTube, the clip makes for awkward viewing. In fact, your Radio Equalizer was actually sympathetic to Kennedy here, truly a first:

Since this scenario has so far only been pushed by the left, the question is this: could it become a self- fulfilling prophecy? Why are they so eager to put forward the idea Obama is in danger? Is there any evidence to support this idea?

As we've previously noted, Obama's security is already tighter than that of anyone in the GOP field.

Before this spreads any further across the mainstream media, it's time to get to the bottom of why they are so keen to suggest Barack's is a target of assassins.

  • I do feel that Obama is at risk...From the Clintons! Think back to how many people around them suddenly die mysteriously. ;)

  • That does seem pretty ridiculous to generate needless "danger" out of thin air. I guess the far left media isn't satisfied with the plethora of world events on the horizon; they feel the need to fabricate "news."

    By the way, sound off on your opinions on the political primaries in Cellecast's Town Hall Debate. Listen to the best media coverage on the election, and record your comments!

  • Please, I remember saying last summer that, with neocons and private "security" concerns running around unchecked, the guy practically has a bullseye on his back...

    And wouldn't it naturally follow that , if Bill and Hillary are actually part of the right-wing conspiracy they helped to create, they could well be behind such proceedings as well?

    That wouldn't make them masterminds, however.
