I support the arrest and prosecution of at protests, when they displayed signs in public that called for his death?Many readers may naively think, “The answer is obvious: no protester was ever arrested for threatening Bush at a protest because . I certainly never heard of any such threats.” Alas, if only it were that simple.

This article is about protesters with threatening protest signs — not about all threats in all settings.

The key question is: Were any protesters ever arrested or questioned for displaying threatening messages about President Bush at a protest? In the very few instances that I could uncover, the incident was either misconstrued by the media, or the protester was at an actual presidential appearance (where there are special security concerns) — or people were detained for other reasons totally aside from their protest messages.

Let me make this perfectly clear: I am not publishing this essay in order to make excuses for anyone who has threatened President Obama, or who plans to threaten him in the future.

This is not some wrongheaded attempt at a logical fallacy; in other words, I’m not trying to claim that death threats against Bush in the past justify threats against Obama now. What I’m saying is that present-day threats to Obama at protests investigated, which I think is inexcusable.

I believe this partly accounts for the 400% increase in reported threats against Obama over those against President Bush.

Part of that reported increase in investigated threats is undoubtedly due to an increase in actual threats; but part of it is almost certainly due to an increase in threats and are therefore brought to the Secret Service’s attention.Because the bald fact is that people threatened Bush at protests all the time by displaying menacing signs and messages — exactly as the anti-Obama protester just did in Maryland. Because this essay exists for one reason only: To prove beyond any doubt that explicit and implicit threats to Bush’s life were commonly displayed at public protests throughout his term as president.Yet for reasons that are not entirely clear, none of those Bush-threateners at protests was ever arrested, questioned, or investigated (at least as far as I could tell). Below this introduction you will find dozens of examples of such threats — unaltered photographs from a wide variety of sources, along with links verifying their authenticity.(This is similar to the famous paradox about rape awareness programs.Researchers were long mystified as to why incidents of rape in a city or a social group seemed to invariably rise rape awareness campaigns drew attention to the problem in order to help solve it.After that was accomplished, I would be known as a national hero”; - A mentally deranged man who threatened to blow up the White House in January of 2009; - A graduate student who posted online threats against Bush in 2006; - A guy who was turned in to the authorities by his own girlfriend after he threatened to kill Bush during a phone call; …and so on.
