Other Countries Threats to Bush made in other countries are obviously not germane to this essay, since the Secret Service has no jurisdiction outside the United States. You may want to turn off your computer volume before clicking on the first three links below, as the pages have annoying embedded music.
Michelle Malkin has a roundup of a few uninvestigated threatening images about Bush. Gateway Pundit has the story of a video made by a child threatening to kill Bush; it was removed from YouTube, but still can be seen here. To follow the complicated argument: Also see my previous essay about the ubiquitous comparisons between Bush and Hitler: Bush as Hitler, Swastika-Mania: A Retrospective Counter-Examples There are two different kinds of possible counter-examples which would incrementally weaken my two-pronged contention that a Protesters threatening Obama are almost always detained or questioned by the police or Secret Service or at least are widely publicized by the mediaand b Protesters threatening Bush almost always got off scot-free, with no investigation and no media outrage.
The first type of counter-example would need to show protesters whose threats to Obama were ignored; and the second type of counter-example would need to show protesters who actually were arrested for threatening Bush. Threats to Obama at Protests that Seem to Have Gone Uninvestigated Obama supporters originally claimed that only Obama gets threatened at protests, and no previous president ever experienced this level of hostility.
However, this essay has proven otherwise. In fact, the opposite of their claim is true: It is Bush who got threatened frequently at protests, whereas Obama not nearly so much.
Furthermore, just about every overt threat to Obama by protesters seems to be properly followed up by the authorities. Still, to be as even-handed as possible, I present this section to document threats to Obama at protests which were never investigated by the Secret Service and which were ignored by the media as were all the threats to Bush documented above.

A few of the stronger examples: Why am I mentioning this? Does this count as a threat, equivalent to the threats depicted at the top of this report? Anyway, Obama was not the president nor even the Democratic nominee for president yet, just one of many hopefuls hoping to run for the Democratic Party nomination.
Threats by protesters against Bush which were investigated by the Secret Service. As with the other type of counter-examples, there seem to have been very very few if any examples of this, but the closest one I could find is presented here: The charges were later dropped anyway. So even if they were removed from the event unfairly, this was not about a death threat, but rather about campaign managers not wanting any protesters in a photo op, as the article mentions.
So — do the counter-examples listed above damage to any significant extent my contention that Obama threats are being pursued more vigorously in general than were Bush threats?
