ACORN--a community-based organization made up of mostly African and Hispanic Americans already the target of John McCain's and Sarah Palin's abusive campaign vitriol with minuscule evidence--has now started coming under literal attack by McCain/Palin supporters. McClatchy reports that ACORN staffers have received death threats, including one Rhode Island woman who received the message, "We know you get off work at 9," followed by racial epithets. ACORN offices in Seattle and Boston have been vandalized and computers stolen.
Reports of people being assaulted and being threatened with assault for opposing McCain/Palin are increasing. At some point, John McCain is going to have to do something more significant than saying "No, ma'am. No ma'am," to someone who acts loony and calls Obama an "Arab." Innocent people are going to get hurt if McCain doesn't take the edge off his rhetoric that has little just cause.
