What do you imagine the reaction would have been if this was an article that appeared 8 years ago? i have changed some details to make the article appear as if it happened after the 2008 election, but you get the idea. The bold type is what I have changed and I will include the link tot he present day story

Actor Calls for ‘Civil War’ and Voter Death
In off-the-wall rant, Gary Sinise claimsObama is 'going to destroy civilization as we know it'

“Forrest Gumpl” and “Apollo 13” actorGary Siniserevealed in recent interviews he has no kind words for Barack Obama. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, since Hollywood has essentially declared war on the president-elect.

What should come as a surprise, and perhaps be concerning, is the vitriol in Gary Sinise comments about both Obama and anyone who voted for the Democratic nominee.

“If you’re voting for Obama, it’s time for the urn.”
In a chat with Rogerebert.com’s Nick Allen,Sinisemade his feelings about a Obama presidency very, very clear. The usually shy actor let loose and was more candid than before in any interview.

“I don’t know how people got so ***damn stupid. But it’s really weird, because it’s like the last eight years — now it feels like a lie. Like, this has been festering underneath the whole time. Racists, sexists. And a lot of these people, they don’t know why the f*** they’re alive. They know it. They’re doing drugs, f***ing killing themselves. Because they’re like, ‘Why the f*** am I alive? I can’t get a job, I don’t know anything about anything, I have no curiosity for life or the world.’ So this Obama thing is like getting a box of firecrackers, or something. It’s like, ‘Well, this will be fun for a little while, this’ll kill some time,'” Sinise said, using his apparently vivid imagination to express what he imagines Obama voters might be thinking.

The Academy Award nominee continued by saying a Obama presidency "is going to destroy civilization as we know it, and the earth."

In a separate interview with Metro News, Sinise kept up the vitriol: "Maybe you need a civil war or something."

"There's a lot of people who need to realize they've had a nice life, and it's time for them to move on. Because they're the ones who go out and vote for these a**holes. No offense to the seniors out there. My mom's a senior citizen. But if you're voting for Obama, it's time for the urn."

What's more shocking in Sinise;s comments is the level of discourse he reduces himself to when talking about voters and the man who will soon be president.

Leftists likes to think they are on the philosophically open side of political discourse — yet people like Sinise suggest every Obama voter is a jobless sexist and racist with no concern for the country or its direction.

The Left poked fun at people like George W. Bush and Mitt Romney — but Gary Sinise's comments are a bad sign for discourse over the next four years.

Under Trump, this individual feels comfortable suggesting "civil war" and openly calling for a large bloc of voters to die. If Trump had lost and this was a public supporter speaking of Clinton and her voters — the story would be very different. An apology would be demanded, jobs would likely be lost, and moviegoers would be in disarray. With someone on the Left saying these things, it appears to simply be par for the course.

my favorite part of the actual article

Its the medias fault. Most of the negitve hateful stuff being talked about i would venture to guess 90% of the county has never heard about, didnt understand or didnt have enough miss informed fack facts to even put forth an argument befor it showed up on cnn, fox, msnbc, abc ,cbs, nbc.

Shut down the nationsal news organizations and hate speach would have almost no impact on our lives over night. Those that would still be practicing it would be screaming at an empty room.

If does not sound much different from what you have been saying for 8 years.
And it is much more tame that what you are now saying now.

I know who he is, but I was making the point that in Hollywood terms, he is almost a nobody

I understand, the person I chose doesn't matter, the idea is if a known conservative said these things about Obama, he would be branded racist, and be made to grovel until the left felt he had been shamed sufficiently. But nothing will happen because he is a progressive and they agree with him taking Trump on

Really (you're making my point btw) when did I call for old people to go to the urn? When did I say that the left doesn't know why they are alive and they should go and f*king die? When did i call for a civil war? Anytime you can cite those comments I would be interested in seeing that. If not I'll send your application to the NYT cuz making stuff up seems to be a strength
