A Kansas City grandmother is suing John McCain and Sarah Palin for promoting hate speech. Mary Kay Green told KSHB that some statements at McCain campaign rallies terrify her as much as the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
“I know the secret service is on this case, but John McCain and Sarah Palin can stop some of this by a statement that they abhor these death threats and will not tolerate them,” said Green. Her lawsuit claims that the McCain campaign has intentionally and recklessly portrayed Barack Obama as a terrorist.
Green believe that Palin has been working crowds into a frenzy. There have been reports from McCain campaign rallies with words like “kill him,” “off with his head,” and “Muslim terrorist.”
Green said, “You have to take these things seriously.”
