Ignatieff Rally: Liberal supporter shouts "KILL HIM!" when Iggy mentions John Baird?!?!?

Are you kidding me? At Iggy's first rally of the year, not even a week after the reprehensible shooting of a US Congresswoman, a Liberal supporter shouts "KILL HIM!" when Ignatieff mentions The Hon. John Baird, Member of Parliament for Ottawa West-Nepean.

Don't believe me? SEE IT FOR YOURSELF... start at the 0:30 second mark, and listen for the disgusting comment at 0:46 seconds.



Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff MUST be called on to distance himself from that reprehensible comment IMMEDIATELY, especially after the shootings in Arizona. While the common barbs and thrusts of politics are to be expected, calls for the death of an opponent ARE BEYOND THE PALE.

UPDATE: Video clip has been downloaded, just in case the Liberals pull the clip down.

    Their imperative could not be more clear: kill him (Harper). Kill him dead. Do not, whatever you do, provide him with an opportunity to extend his hold on power.

    And some Liberal supporter says "kill him" when Ignatieff brings up the name of John Baird, and we're all supposed to be surprised. And if this were reversed and someone said at a Tory rally with the PM mentioning, say, Mark Holland and a Tory supporter said, " kill him", how loud would the Liberal and media shouting be then. Indeed, where is the MSM outrage? Where are their blaring headlines?

    The MSM don't even pretend to be unbiased anymore.

    Michael Ignatieff stand up and condemn the language used by your supporters "KILL HIM" is not appropriate
    language to be directed at a Cabinet Minister of the Government of Canada John Baird
    if you do not condemn this language immediately the language and images will get worse
    we as Canadians will not tolerate criminals attacking our members of parliament and that includes attacks on any opposition members
    ask that this person be identified by the RCMP and let his mental health be examined
    before he plots to carry out his words "KILL HIM"

    Yes, why ISN'T this making headlines? Are we so used to incivility in Parliament that this is considered business as usual? Or is our media hopelessly slow to release anything? Those two theories seem far more likely than bias toward the Liberals; all I hear from anywhere is that Ignatieff is a douche. (Actually, that's all I hear about any of them.)

    Personally, I detest Iggy and the Liberal party of Canada, but I would NEVER holler "Kill him" at the mention of his name. I would snort in discust and vent my anger on election day. The fact that Iggy didn't say anything tells you volumes about his character.

    I like where Iggy says 'one word' JOHN BAIRD.

    A Liberal supporter, you say. I wonder how you can be so certain.

    Ammm, yea Brian... I think your tinfoil hat is a little too tight.

    CC, with all due respect, you present a video taken at an open rally held in a shopping mall, then identify a shameful utterance as coming from a Liberal supporter. You've stated this with absolute certainty, yet it is also possible that the words were spoken anyone who just happened to be passing by.

    I'm not saying that you are wrong, rather that I don't see how you can truly know.

    i certainly hope you forwarded this to CPC HQ, just in case they need to use it. i would love to see the reaction by the MSM and the people of this country during an election to this tripe.

    What Brian said. Do you have any proof it wasn't a conservative plant who shouted it? It sounds like something a conservative would do to me.

    TCH, what I said to Brian... loosen the straps, your tinfoil hat is too tight. ;-)

    What is this tinfoil hat metaphor??

    I listened to the portions of the video you mentioned, and even with that specific focus, had to listen to it more than once to hear the comment in question. (This is perhaps my ears. I first heard "Job Fair", rather than "John Baird". And my visual abilities have been embarrassing me a lot lately too. But I digress.)

    I share the opinion of others here that you are far too quick to label the "kill him" guy a Liberal.

    I also agree that Ignatieff (and all politicians) should publicly repudiate (or perhaps even "refudiate") such statements.

    Aside from that one or two seconds you are focusing on... I think the speech was good... at least from a liberal point of view. It indirectly responds to attacks on Ignatieff's patriotism; responding to charges that he is less Canadian for having left the country for howevermanyyears by bringing up this Candidate's credentials, including a period outside of Canada, and linking it with his period outside of Canada... And he did it (at least in these few seconds) without questioning Harper's Canadianness. And his Canadianness can be questioned.

    One thing I can recall Dion saying, which I think he shouldn't have said (yes, yes, there are probably many such statements) was that he wanted "his Canada back". As much as I agree with the sentiment, I think it's dangerous to start questioning the patriotism or Canadianness of other Canadians, especially political leaders. It makes productive engagement with opponents less likely; less possible.

    PS...
    Looked up "tin foil hat" on Wikipedia... and I think your comment is not appropriate. If wikipedia is right, and the tinfoil hat is a reference to paranoid delusions... I think your certainty that a "liberal" is to blame is far more worthy of a tinfoil hat than any one else's skepticism...

    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. :)

    Anon on Feb 16... regarding the person of whom you speak, I knew that a number of years ago. Doesn't change a thing about my opinion of him, met and chatted with him a number of times... nice guy, who just like the rest of us, has his issues with sin.

    As I said to someone else just this evening, we view sin like the mountains... some peaks appear to be higher than others. But from 30,000 feet, which is God's view of mankind, THEY (WE) ALL LOOK THE SAME. Hence the need for God's gift of salvation through His Son... EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US.
