Community organizing at its finest.

Obama's supporters are threatening to riot if Mitt Romney wins the election. Such violence is typical in less developed countries, and countries with corrupt political institutions. If riots were to occur, it would confirm the corrupt nature of the current administration.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The threats have gone viral on Twitter, with Obama supporters retweeting and pledging their arms to riot in the streets if he is not reelected. The volume of viral traffic on the network suggests the threat is genuine. 

Multiple media outlets have picked up this story and are bringing the topic to national attention. The Obama administration, which we would hope would move to quell the threat, will at best make a late-coming, half-hearted plea for people to stay home rather than destroy their own neighborhoods, if they say anything at all. 

The threats of rioting are real because it looks increasingly probably that Mitt Romney could come out on top. 

Still, the tweets are racist and angry and should give law-abiding citizens reason to pause. 

The Obama administration has a duty to lose with as much dignity and grace as possible, if that should be what voters decide in November. Furthermore, because he will still be in office on November 7th, Obama will have a sacred duty to enforce law and order to whatever extent is necessary. If riots occur, then they will be the first time in US history that there has been a contentious transition of power, with the only arguable exception being of the election of President Lincoln in 1860. 

The mere possibility of a riot suggests corruption in an administration whose leader prides himself as a first-rate community organizer. 

Romney has drawn fire from a small group of citizenry that draws their sustenance from public assistance. Even among that group, the vast majority have no plans to run riot. Being on public assistance does not make one a criminal, however, there has been a conscious effort to portray Romney as insensitive to the needs of that community and planning the cut them off support. 

This is a lie, perpetuated by radical Obama supporters. Romney has called for all Americans to take responsibility for their well-being, but he has never pledged to cut anyone off from much-needed public support. The support system is a safety net designed to help people who have no alternative than the street. That safety net will not be removed under the Romney administration. 

However, some people who do not belong in that net might encouraged to find their way out. 

If Obama wins a second term, it is telling that there are no threats from Tea Party supporters to run amok. There are no moderates, no independents or staunch conservatives who are threatening to riot. Catholics, who have endured one of the most anti-Catholic administrations of the past century, have never threatened to commit a crime in the face of government sanctioned prejudice. 

However, the same cannot be said for Obama's supporters. 

What does that say about Obama?
