Obama rhetoric and support of the violent #OWS (occupy) movement, the hyper-incitement on the intolerant left to hate, whether it's on the net or in the news discourse, led to a shooting at the Family Research Council.

"Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for," he is alleged to have said. (more here)
