    The left did not care about "vitriol" when it was directed at Bush for 8 years. I mean they OPENLY called for his assassination, including cartoonists with National followings.

    (Vancouver Free Press) — A Democratic Congressman plans to bring in a bill to outlaw violent symbols targeting members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Senate, or the judiciary.
    In an inteview on CNN, Robert Brady (D-Penn) said he wants to make it a federal crime to use threatening language or symbols against federal officials. “All we are trying to do is protect ourselves and our staff members,” Brady said.
    When asked when the legislation would be brought forward, he replied it would be on the “first day when we go back in session”. . . .
    Brady hinted that a controversial map created by Sarah Palin’s political action committee—which featured targets on 20 House districts—would be illegal if his proposal is adopted.
    The map included Arizona’s eighth district, which is represented by Giffords in Congress.
    The CNN interviewer pointed out that Palin’s map only featured symbols over top of districts, but that didn’t dissuade Brady from taking a hard line. “Everyone knows who represents that district,” he said.

    Do they need any?

    People are gonna try to score political points from this. They're gonna take donations. They don't need evidence to do that.

    No.

    Racists were always fueled with hate.

    But now they're being given a pass by the media and pols Palin.

    I wonder how many on the left would cheer Sarah Palin getting shot.
