[DEVELOPING] Shots Fired at Obama Campaign Office

9 News reports that shots were fired today at a Denver field office of Organizing for America. The West 9th Avenue office was fired on at about 3:00 PM. Thankfully, nobody was inside–presumably, staff and volunteers were out canvassing for Obama. [EDIT: 9News is now reporting that people WERE inside the office, but that there are no injuries.]

Police say that they have a “vehicle of interest.”

The attack comes a mere day after the First Lady’s Colorado visit.

      Psychological projection.

      And further, using the reptilian brain, kill anyone who isn’t part of the “tribe.”  Nits make lice.

      and makes light of a situation where someone could have actually been killed by righties’ guns.

      • Libertad says:

        I haven’t seen anyone make light of this attempted murder. You should dial back your disappointment and understand that over the last two years Democrat campaign offices were attacked and in one case the convicted criminal was a Democrat activist running a false flag operation.

        If you want to make a difference then maybe you should get out and do some walking for your party….there is a massive amount of anger out there with our national leadership….you need to explain why the Democratic approach to governance is best served with the methodology of central planning.

          Fuck.  You.

        • nancycronknancycronk says:

          In one breath you say no one is making light of this attempted murder story, and in another call it “disappointing”? Wow.

          • Libertad says:

            With all these attacks on Democrat activist offices you’d think the Democrats would have long ago deployed security cameras and other measures to protect their people.

            Why don’t Democrats take basic preventative measures that many other institutions and businesses enact to protect their workers and guests?

          targeting the Denver SEUI office in 2010 a little “prank”, too. http://www.thedenverchannel.co

          As for the singular “false flag” story, that was done by a very troubled young anarchist, not a Democrat.

          Libertad — the day the GOP takes responsibility for stirring up hate and inciting violence among its many gun nuts, is the day we’ll start taking you seriously.

            Remeber OWS-Clevland …. this Obama backed organizations members tried to blow up a freaking bridge.

            Then of course we have the OWS crowd that raped and murdered other OWS participants.

            Then we have the ACORN (an Obama community partner) organized effort to promote underaged illegal alien human sex trafficking.

            People should find it shocking that so many Democrat institutions are engaged or otherwise fail to protect themselves from these illegal activities.

        • Duke Coxdukeco1 says:

          more than my share of angry gun nuts. Every single fucking one of them is either a republican or a libertarian.

          I have never met a Democrat with a similar mindset.

          You are simply, wholly, undeniably, full of shit.

    “It’s clear that we don’t have enough people that genuinely understand who we’re up against. We’re in a war with leftists.”

    is responsible. Rush should be arrested and charged with a crime.
