Author Erica Jong scaring voters for Obama.

Perhaps we have finally reached a campaign low, as Obama supporters are warning of “blood in the streets” and a new “civil war” should Obama lose on Tuesday. We do not know if these scare tactics will resonate with American voters, but they are an interesting move at the end of a campaign.

Enter Erica Jong, author of some note who tells in an interview of her correspondence with fellow liberals Jane Fonda, Ken Follet and Susan Cheever. She speaks of the Republican Mafia, and the violent rioting that would occur if John McCain wins the presidency. She claims that the left’s favorite voodoo dolls, Dick Cheney and George Bush, summoned troops back from Iraq to quell the violent uprising.

“If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets.”

The references, of course, are to inner city black people and anti-American anarchists rioting violently if their candidate is unable to win. The idea is the voter should picture images of the Rodney King riots, and vote Obama if they know what is good for their health. The Obama nation is depicted as a vengeful one, filled with raging supporters who will take to the streets in unlawful acts of pillaging and mayhem.

I suppose that the violence on Tuesday night would become forever known as the Great Obama Riots of 2008. God help the nation.
