A prediction come true. Already.

James H. Fetzer and J.R. Dunn
Predictions are fun, never more so than when they come to pass, and it's even better when it happens immediately so that everybody notices.  (Runaway ego? Sure, I'll cop to it.)

In my essay today ("Conservatives Must Not Practice the Politics of Despair"), I predicted that we would be seeing threats, menacing, and even violent attacks from Obama's more unbalanced followers. No sooner had I finished the essay  then I came across (thanks to the industry of the Lucianne.com crowd), this report    concerning one man's confrontation with the Obamanistas.

In "We Will Kill You", Steve Corbett, a Wilkes-Barre radio host, discusses a serious death threat he received through Obama's official campaign website, an e-mail promising to kill him "when Obama become PRESIDENT OF USA". (The reason for the delay is uncertain -- perhaps the sender believes that such killings will become legal at that time, as in latter-day imperial Rome.)

The e-mail's origin is no smoking gun -- evidently Obama's site is easily hijacked by third parties wishing to utilize it as a front, an asinine and appalling failing at this point of infotech evolution. There's no doubt that this was the work of such a third party, one who, textual evidence makes clear, is not too bright, not very well educated, and not firing on all six either.

Corbett himself, interestingly enough, is a man of the left, a supporter of Madame Hillary, which was more than enough to make him a target. This should come as no surprise -- such campaigns of intimidation and violence on the left begin as cannibalism (think of all the "internal purges" in Marxist states) before expanding into the world at large. 

Expand it will. Obama's followers are a strange, uneasy lot to start with, and he's been instigating them, feeding them dreams and visions that neither he nor anyone else has the power to bring to fruition. They are going to grow frustrated, and true believers have notoriously short fuses. In playing messiah, visionary, and prophet, Obama has been toying with forces he does not understand and cannot control. He has sown the wind. The whirlwind will follow.
