McCain Supporter in Pottsville: “Bomb Obama!”

Others waiting in line shout racist, hate-filled speech at demonstrators

(POTTSVILLE, PA)—In what has become a regular occurrence, dozens of supporters of Senator John McCain shouted racist and hate-filled speech at about 100 demonstrators yesterday in Pottsville, Pennsylvania.

One of the McCain supporters was caught on video shouting “Bomb Obama!” repeatedly. When asked what he meant, he said “Get rid of him. I've had a number of people in the... when he gets in the White House..."

He then formed a gun with his hand and made a shooting sound.

The incident was reported immediately to Pottsville Police Captain Richard Wojciechowsky, who said it did not sound serious. The video later was shown to the Secret Service.

The video can be viewed at http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/10/28/81223/645/188/638506 Yesterday’s video, and similar videos from McCain and Palin rallies around Pennsylvania, were shot and produced by Keystone Progress. www.youtube.com/morrillmajority
