"Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head by a gunman at a public event on Saturday.

Am I crazy for being increasingly worried about Obama's safety in the aftermath of this? I just feel like a dam may have broken, and now the crazies are going to come crawling out of the woodwork.

Mine as well, but really it's been at the back of my mind since the wingnuts started getting extra crazy.

I have worried about this from when he won the election.

Gah.... Just.... Ugh.

They have got to be getting close to pushing the limits of free speech... With Arizona being a concealed w/o permit state, the outcome of this protest may not be good.

Oh, I don't know. Depends on who it isn't going to be good for! You have to admit, that family deserve whatever bad luck they get!

Granted, Sharon, but they're on the same side (from many reports) as the nutcase who did the shooting, and certainly on the same side that's spouting the violent rhetoric.

Nice to know that you've eleveated Westboro to a mainstream acceptable group.

That's a valid point. Thing is that the shooter is not on the same side of the poltical spectrum as Westboro, in as much as you can say that either the shooter or Westboro have any particular political side.

As far as I can tell, the only side Westboro is on is their own. I'm not sure anyone can subscribe any real political beliefs to them...they seem to hate just about anyone and everyone. They're sort of non-discriminatory in who they hate.

They may be on the 'same side' politically as the mainstreamed groups spouting the violent rhetoric, but that isn't going to help when they tick off the members of that group in real life, which is what they specialise in doing.

Obviously I'm not perceiving a trend (is that even possible, from a single incident?). What I fear is a rash of copycats. My fear is particularly acute for Obama, since his being the first black president puts him in the crosshairs of the crazies to begin with. What's more, he's been subjected to a steady stream of vitriol from right-wing sources considered "mainstream"--far beyond arguing with his policies--e.g., "birthers." Which is exactly the sort of thing many of us believe led to the Giffords shooting.

Has the Giffords shooting made the unthinkable thinkable in the minds of the unhinged? Hopefully you're right in saying I'm being overanxious.

Even ifd they wanted to be on a political "side" no one else would have them. They have made themselves pretty much universally hated by everyone else in the country.
