    The Idaho 2nd and 3rd graders chanting Assasinate Obama were my favorites.

    Nice to see so many of Sarah Palin's "Real Americans" expressing what they presume are their First Amendment freedoms.
    Among the really sad parts of this story is that these cretins -- some of them, anyway -- will actually trot out the civil liberties argument. And they'll do because they're far more interested in the Second Amendment than the First.

    These stories make me angry, and then sad. The racist, hate-mongering lunatic fringe may always be with us, I'm afraid.

    I'm not defending it, but no one should be suprised at this happening.

    The election just gives them a reason to be more vocal.

    Or an excuse.

    Thanks so much, Grandpa, for playing it both ways, as you did.

    Strange, we never have these stories when the democrats
    lose an election.

    These kids are getting off easy. This charge is far to light.

    By Tom Fontaine, Times Staff

    NORTH FAYETTE TWP. — The presidential election sparked a classroom dispute at West Allegheny High School that ultimately led to an after-school attack on a black teen last Friday, North Fayette Township police said.

    North Fayette Police Chief Jeff Falconer said six West Allegheny students, all of whom are white, will be charged in the assault but won’t face charges of ethnic intimidation.
