Big applause and laughs for lynching democratic lawmakers joke???

Crowd laughs and applauds at Rep. Akin’s comment about lawmakers almost being ‘lynched’ at town halls.
At a “Freedom Conference” meeting earlier this week, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) mentioned that some Democratic lawmakers were almost “lynched” by angry protesters around the country at town hall meetings. In response, the crowd loudly laughed and applauded. Akin then lightly said that “we dont want to” approve lynchings, which generated more laughter:

Different people from Washington, DC have come back to their districts and had town hall meetings, and they almost got lynched. (APPLAUSE)

I assume you’re not approving lynchings, because we don’t want to do that. (LAUGHTER)

  • Holy shit anon 7:08 number 2 ...stay on topic. Joking about lynchings is not cool. It is hateful and disgusting. Even if you have a problem with Obama and the Dem party, you don't have to justify hate...unless you think lynchings are funny.

    Your the LOSER! This isn't about Obama but again, YOU will make it about HIM! Your right wing lunatic friends are uncivilized wildabeasts, who apparently don't know the line between good and bad taste

  • Sweet-a-kins, you are a liberal loon. Thank god those like you are in the minority and getting smaller all the time. Either get grounded in yourself for what you are or do the world a favor and drown yourself in the koolaid.

    Are you saying it didn't happen? Or do you just have no sense of decorum and will refuse to admit this is in poor taste?

  • So where was the hatred and outrage when the nitwit did the Halloween thing, with the lynching of a certain republican.

    You either hate it all, or you dont. You dont get to pick and chose. But I forgot only the right wing nut jobs do it. Some of you do have your heads up your asses.
