Death Threats Against President George W. Bush

Obama, Pelosi, Reid & Co. have been complaining of "threats" and "hate speech" at protest rallies. But remember these? Death threats against President George W. Bush at protests were ignored for years! Double standard? You decide.

  •  
    "I'm here to kill Bush (shoot me)" reads this protest sign (location unknown).
  •

    P.S. It's T-H-E-I-R.

    "Save Mother Earth, Kill Bush" says this sign from a November 20, 2003 protest.
