Obama Conspiracy Theories “live within the computer and they fester in people’s minds”: After the Abortion Doctor and Holocaust Museum Shootings, Shepard Smith Worries About Obama’s Assassination by Far-Right Crazies in a Discussion with Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center

Is the authoritarian right on its way to a noxious repeat of the militia movement culture that culminated, in the 1990s, in the Oklahoma City bombing—only this time with the target being our first African American president?

After the U.S. Holocaust Museum shooting today, Shepard Smith talked with Heidi Beirich about how the far-right is clearly ginning up the kind of hysterical climate that could lead to violence against President Obama.

    Liars. OKC bombing: I SAW the BATF running with TWO unexploded bombs from WITHIN the building. The debris was dumped in PRIVATE PROPERTY. The investigation records from WACO were destroyed in OKC. The investigation records from OKC were destroyed in WTC7, hit by NOTHING. Obuma is NOT a president of the USA, he is an ILLEGAL ALIEN. Show yo papers, OB!! And the SPLC jews belong to the same cadre of puppetmasters pulling strings on the Resident. LIES, lies, and more lies. If it were not for the Internet… the Masters of Deceit would still reign ‘masters’. NOT.

    Thanks for sharing with the rest of us why we should not be concerned for Obama’s safety. If it’s all just a big conspiracy, we can all go back to sleep now.

    You’ve inadvertantly—and quite unintentionally, I’m sure—given additional resonance to the concern that he is, in fact, in real danger from groups and “lone wolves” who, well, think and speak the way that you do.
