This is scary stuff and what our country has come to:
An armed man took people hostage Friday at a Hillary Clinton presidential campaign office in New Hampshire, police said.
The incident happened at about 1 p.m. Friday at 28 North Main St. in Rochester. Officials said that a man is holding people hostage at the office, but it is unclear how many people are being held.
There are several police officers positioned across the street from the office, crouched down behind cruisers with guns drawn, according to a reported at the scene.
Hillary has canceled her speech this afternoon at the DNC due to this crisis.
And the wingnuts start! A commenter on Hot Air (Malkin’s other blog) thinks it is a campaign stunt. Here is a screen grab:
And now on Malkin’s blog, one commenter wants us to “pray this is real”. Sick!
(more updates below the fold)
Again on HotAir we get more of the wingnut foolery:
Malkin has a track record of trolling through left-wing blog comments when something like this happens and exploiting comments by anonymous people. Her sites require a closed registration (meaning you can’t even sign up – you must be invited in). This really shows how her “friends” think.
FOX News is advertising on their website to watch the swat team moving in “live”. The other news stations are saying they were asked to not show live footage. So if they have internet access in this office (most likely) and he has FOX’s website on, this guy now knows the position of swat teams.
Reports are that this is a local man with a history of mental illness.
