"It will be such a pity when somebody shoots him."

This is a man with children, and a wife. And yet, we joke about him being shot.

Coping mechanism? Probably. But still sorta twisted if you ask me.

Unfunny and offensive.

"It will be such a pity when somebody shoots him."

Oh yeah, that was really funny...

I can't help but wonder how the guys who put this out would have felt if they had been transported back to May, 1968 and had sung the Beach Boys ditty about RFK.

It seems quite a few men trying to do good things in the past have been suddenly snuffed out by a "lone gun man"

Thats no joke either.

wow. um, normally i am all for humor and making light of things, but this is so offensive. this is about a man, a father, a husband, a son, a human being. are we so calloused by the kennedys and king and malcolm x that we can roar with laughter at this lyric? i use the word "we" loosely. not laughing here.

Remember, folks, that this is a guy who has neither denounced, rejected, renounced, nor dejected the execrable Charles Lemos, now a proud contributer to the hate site NOQUARTER. What do you expect?

Ah, limits… The ones we put ourselves in charge of tracing, mind you: i suppose that, had it been about George Bush, now, THAT would have been hilarious.

But is it funny to joke about political assassinations? Well, in the US, for recent historical reasons, not so much. In Britain, obviously, the audience laughed. Fooking republican Brits! Well, Hillary is getting off scot-free now, but i see Mitch Benn in a lot of trouble!

"But remember, folks", this is from a guy (i assume it is Norman) "who has neither denounced, renounced… the execrable Charles Lemos". Worse, Norman never, i mean, never DEJECTED him. How dare you, Norman, not to deject him? Now, that's funny not only in Great Britain!
