Militia nut openly calls for Obama’s assassination on Facebook

The head of the Christian American Patriots Militia has put out an open call on Facebook for the assassination of President Obama.

“We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him,” writes Everest Wilhelmsen on his personal Facebook page.

Wilhelmsen continues: “His willful violations and alienation of our Constitution, constant disregard for our peaceful protests and corruption of all the three branches of government, (i.e., rogue and illegitiimate government), reveal the dictator that he is…. I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) …never to return, if he is not dead within the month. ”

Wilhelmsen also has a Facebook page he administers, called Christian American Patriots Militia. The page has 1,389 members.

In addition to simply hating the President, and being convinced that he was born in Kenya and is a Muslim, Wilhelmsen is a supporter of the Tea Party, anti-Obamacare, and very concerned about Benghazi.  Oh, and he’s also apparently a big supporter for the 2nd Amendment.

The threat against the President – or call for him to be assassinated – was posted two days ago, on November 19, 2013. Oddly, it has yet to be taken down.

facebook-assassination-threat-largeWilhelmsen also posted on his blog a “final warning” to the President, Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Kerry, Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and Department of Defense General Counsel Jeh Johnson. In the “final warning,” he threatens violence against each of the men (in all caps, naturally):

THEREFORE, IF EACH ONE OF YOU DOES NOT FORMALLY DECLARE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE (VOTERS) THAT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR. WAS AND IS INELIGIBLE TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, (I.E., ACKNOWLEDGE PUBLICLY THAT HE IS NOW TRESPASSING IN THE OFFICE AND IN OUR WHITE HOUSE, THAT HE IS NOT ONLY UNLAWFULLY RESTRICTING, BUT ELIMINATING ALL OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION AND ABUSING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE), YOU WILL BE FORCIBLY REMOVED FROM ALL OF YOUR DUTIES IN A HARSH MANNER, THAT MAY PUT YOUR VERY LIFE AT RISK — NOT ONLY DURING YOUR ARREST, BUT THEREAFTER. (emphasis added)

In the missive, he adds that “the time is VERY NEAR.”

In another post he implores “patriots” to use “force” again:

American patriots have been provided with the right and the weapons to abolish this rogue and illegitimate (arbitrary) government. This is very clearly provided in the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution (the right to bear arms), which is in fact a right of resistance and also in line with our Declaration of Independence. And this right and duty to abolish this government NOW REQUIRES us to act, not with an election, but with FORCE.

In yet another post, after mentioning his concerns about what the President’s “Muslim co-conspirators did in Benghazi,” Wilhelmsen again calls for force against federal officials:

American patriots, it is time for us to march on the federal government with all our guns loaded (with our fire torches) and arrest federal employees willfully violating our Constitution—all attacking our Republic — and if we are fired upon we must return fire (“fight fire with fire”) – shoot to kill.

His Twitter feed is also a piece of work.

Interestingly, his LinkedIn profile claims that he’s a teacher in the Konstanz area of Germany (though I found a Web site of an American teaching English in Germany with his same, living in Bodensee, Germany). Though there are other signs on the Web that he might live in New Mexico or Alaska.  If he is in Germany, I’m surprised he gets away with this over there – because of their unique history, some European countries, Germany in particular, regulate hate- and more generally extreme- speech much more than we do, or can, here in the US.

I know he’s only one more, but it scares me when I see things like this on Facebook, when I see nearly 2,000 people supporting this man.  And when I see two days go by without Facebook or WordPress pulling this man’s various accounts.

And what troubles me the most is when I see crazies like this fuel by every Republican conspiracy from Benghazi, to bitherism, to Obamacare, to guns.  Words have consequences, and a number of us have said for a while that while no sane person would listen to conservative hate-talk and pick up a gun, but we’re a bit country, and I’m not worried about the sane ones.  The crazy ones can all too easily get a gun as well.

    Re: Alien and Sedition Acts.
    Thomas Jefferson, the man who penned the ringing declaration of human rights that is the Declaration of Independence, (all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights) also was a slave holder and, indeed, kept some of his own children from Sally Hemmings in slavery. It doesn’t diminish what he said in the Declaration.
    These were deeply flawed men. Reaching for something better than they themselves could achieve. Same with John Adams. When they’re right, they are right. Notwithstanding subsequent wrong actions.
    Thanks for the link. I will check it out.

  • Matt

    And yet Jackson, remember him, made sure to tell the ruffians during his presidency to shut up. Or how about that nice Sedition Act, John Adams had. Look up Jackson’s loving response to the Nullification Crisis. At least Washington during the Whiskey Rebellion actually tried not to kill to many people during that mess. Jackson would have hung them all with extra tight nooses o had them shot instantly. Please look up Washington’s along with the other Founding Father’s response to Shay’s Rebellion [put down by George Lincoln] and then to the Whiskey Rebellion. Shay’s Rebellion is why we have the Constitution in the first place. Washington, THE FOUNDING FATHER, put down the Whiskey Rebellion, himself no less. It proved that government could pass laws and not be subverted. It also proved force cannot subvert the democratic process.

    Lincoln put down the secessionist nitwits who refused to submit to the democratic process. The election of Lincoln no less. Seems familiar…

    They shot up a fort while Lincoln tried to send supplies. The Confederacy failed in large part due to its inability to actually do anything. States in the Confederacy like the Articles of Confederation had more power then the actual government so when it same to enforcing federal laws on conscription, it became a total pain in the ass. States could and would battle the Federal Gov in the Confederacy and won hands down. Shit. States could openly deny manpower and money to the cause. For example, Joseph Brown, Gov of GA, warned of a secret conspiracy by Jefferson Davis to destroy states’ rights and individual liberty. The Draft the “essence of military despotism.” the Governor of Texas, Pendleton Murrah, another example, refused to send soldiers east cause he wanted them to battle Indians and keep them just in case the Federal Troops would attack from Kansas. The Government had no political parties who provided different viewpoints for voters to pick.alternatives. The government of the confed couldn’t control speculation like the one with Cotton so that also helped crush it. We also have the food shortages the Confederate government was under. And yet the government weak and pathetic couldn’t get the allocation of supplies needed. The armed insurrection known as the Civil War ended that notion, but Green Corn Rebellion, Helderburg War and Battle of Red River Canyon to name a few more instances that rebellion in the US was put down.

    You forgot the Whiskey Rebellion, Shay’s Rebellion, Green Corn, Helderburg War and Battle of Red River Canyon to name a few more. The Whiskey Rebellion (1791) [Put down by Washington himself] and Shay’s Rebellion (1786) [Put down by Benjamin Lincoln] happened early on in The United States of America. Look at the founding fathers’ reaction to those two to see how they felt.

    Because Zuckerborg is a right-wing radical that financially supports the anti-American right-wing.

    Disagreeing with the President is one thing. I do. BUT threatening the president is a felony. And his other posts only spew racism with no valid argument.

  • ComradeRutherford

    “It is becoming the will of the country.”

    That is nonsense. It is certainly NOT the ‘will of the country.’ It is only the masturbatory fantasy of a few radical anti-American extremists who are afraid because the majority of Americans don’t believe exactly what they do.

  • ComradeRutherford

    Bloodshed is not acceptable to any civilized society. It only is ‘acceptable’ to a tiny, violent minority that can’t get it’s way on the merits of their arguments because they are way too radical for the vast majority.

  • ComradeRutherford

    “Obama is a left wing liberal Democrat.”

    Nonsense. Obama has always been solidly in the Moderate Republican area of the spectrum of US politics. Senators Sanders and Warren are middle-of-the road left-of-center-ists. There is no ‘radical left’ in the numbers that we see on the radical extremist right (Tea Baggers).

    Nothing Obama has done is even remotely ‘liberal’.

  • ComradeRutherford

    Wait, you are saying this guy is NOT an FBI plant created to attract 1389 like-minded anti-Americans?

  • ComradeRutherford

    I am always amazed at the crazy vitriol of people like this and their claims against Democratic Presidents, when the Bush II regime was far, far worse than any Democratic President ever has been. But they all LOVED Bush for brazenly lying in order to start two wars, etc…

    You don’t know what you mean because you’re unable to distinguish between rightwingers like Democrats and Republicans and the left, which is socialist. Pity.

    And meaningless. The left is beginning to push back against Democrats and Republicans. “The rain was cold, dripping down her blue poncho, but the newly elected city councilwoman’s words sizzled.

    Surrounded by union workers gathered to support Boeing’s machinists, Kshama Sawant denounced the two-party political system, corporate greed, military contracts and the leaders of the aerospace giant whose name has long been synonymous with Puget Sound.

    “We don’t need the executives!” cried Seattle’s first elected Socialist in living memory, as the damp crowd cheered and rush-hour traffic hummed slowly by. “We need Boeing to be under democratic public ownership by workers — by the community!” http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-c1-seattle-socialist-20131120-dto,0,7140015.htmlstory#axzz2lbhLD2xl

  • Brian Frang

    Not always. I know a lot of liberals I want to slap upside the head for being overly idealistic, judgemental douchebags, but you’ll find, just like with conservatives, that the more moderate members of the political aisle tend to be much more capable of civil discourse. I just happen to personally think that your crazies are a hell of a lot crazier than our crazies, and our crazies aren’t in control of the whole party, like your crazies are.

  • Brian Frang

    Yes, because committing treason and sedition and openly calling for war against the government (which, by the way, what assassinating the president is) is TOTALLY protected by the First Amendment… Except that it’s not. According to the ruling of Schenck v. United States, the Supreme Court case that established the “clear and present danger” standard, “The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man in falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic. […] The question in every case is whether the words used are used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present danger that they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a right to prevent.” Acts of treason and sedition, and threats against the life of any human being are considered to be a clear and present danger, according to the law. If you REALLY can’t see how this is not protected speech, you are simply an idiot.

    I wouldn’t say Obama is right wing, but he sure as heck is not a liberal Democrat or left wing. He is centrist, but that center has moved far to the right over the past few decades. The only people who think he is left are those so far to the right they can’t see the real left.

  • fletcher

    Obama might be doing something right. The Tea Partyers thing he is a dar left-wing socialist and Bill Perdue thinks he is a right-winger.

  • fletcher

    Like you guys (for want of a better term) are examples of civil discussion?

  • Patricia Reedy

    I agree with the spirit of Pallida’s remarks. I must ask everyone, however: please stop confusing criminal behaviors such as assassinations with people who are struggling with mental illnesses. The overwhelming majority of these folks are law-abiding, peaceful people. Use of words like “nuts” or “psychos” will, in my opinion, only serve to further stigmatize and scapegoat people who have nothing to do with this garbage.

  • Patricia Reedy

    Bill Perdue is correct. The American Left – the true Left , mind you – does not contain politicians like Obama. Perdue is also correct when he says that assassination is pointless. Fernandez, it might be a good idea if you allowed for the input of true leftists. The characterization of the ‘left’ by right-wing folks who oppose Obama bears little resemblance with the true left, which does not contain Obama or his ilk.

  • RepubAnon

    President Obama, like many Democrats, is hardly a left-wing liberal. For example, consider Mr. Obama’s position on single-payer health care, and his approval of using “chained CPI” as a stealth way to cut Social Security benefits.

    That said, many on the right call President Obama a far-left, liberal Democrat. These same people consider Republican Senator Mitch McConnell to be dangerously liberal as well. Indeed, they probably consider Rush Limbaugh to be left-of-center. So many people needing 72-hour psych evaluations, so few bed spaces…

  • RepubAnon

    An old H. Bean Piper story (A Planet for Texans) was run that way – shooting a practicing politician was considered a crime only to the extent that the politician “didn’t deserve it”. Isn’t it interesting how so many right-wingers base their policies on works of fantasy, such as Ayn Rand novels? Kind of like Trekkies, but with real guns.

  • Donna in Rome

    Maybe, but I don’t know if it would be necessary to actually “share” it, which actually makes him look as if he has numerous supporters. All you’d have to do is make a screengrab of it (which is what most of the shares of it are).

  • RepubAnon

    Besides, everyone knows that the Libtards and Demon-crats coarsen our otherwise civil political discussions by calling their political opponents insulting names, making wild accusations of broad conspiracies, and (worst of all) failing to unilaterally surrender to all demands by the somewhat left-of-center Tea Party.

    Sure, there’s a drastic difference between a right-wing moderate and a crazy psycho with no interest in seeing a functional government… but that doesn’t mitigate the fact that our left-wing politics are mired in the right-wing weeds. Calling Obama liberal is an insult to liberals.

  • Patrick Stager

    YES! Absolutely! Have you actually seen these militia types? They’d break a sweat going up a small flight of stairs, if they’re not too geriatric to walk up them in the first place. Do you really think they pose a legitimate threat to the most powerful political figure in the world? I’m inclined to think not. All articles like this do are give these people a soapbox. It’s not like we need to be convinced that these guys are in the wrong, they do that all themselves.

They found the deer carcasses (out of season, of course) and could see the snowmobile tracks in the snow, and figured out what was going on. They eventually did find the guys responsible and they did wind up getting well-deserved jail time – a year or more, I think.

    In the 70s, I worked at Control Data’s (no longer in existence) central bldg. in Mpls, MN while one of the prototypes of new armored tanks were on the drawing boards and simulator stages. I was knocked over by the top secret weaponry I saw, and hoped never to see in action. Wow, has this country come a long way! Now we have the new battleship Zumwalt class and their guns can hit within 6-7 inches of the target. And these military extremists groups think they’ve got a leg up? Those legs won’t do them any good in this weaponized age! And then there are the drones that can fire rockets and hit targets miles from the control pilots. OOOOOOkay!!!

    What galls me to no end as a person growing up on a farm, is the following scenario: Three miles north of our farm was a small stand of trees, and when riding my horse through this small area, I came upon FOUR dead full-sized deer, piled on top of each other, left to rot! Can you imagine how many families those four deer could have, would have fed if they had just been brought in to the local butcher to process and give away, to the needy of that community? This is just one case and I know there are others. I kept inspecting this area 3 or 4 times more, and they were never picked up. Sad, sad, sad case of waste!

    The opinion of Hubert Humphrey, good man that he was, is rarely, if ever, consulted on the intent of the framers to the Constitution.
    And some of the Quotes ( sounds bites) you clearly did not read.
    John Adams, A Defense of the Constitution, for instance:
    “To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, EXCEPT IN PRIVATE SELF DEFENSE, or by partial orders of towns, countries, or districts of a state, IS TO DEMOLISH EVERY CONSTITUTION, AND LAY THE LAWS PROSTRATE, SO THAT LIBERTY CAN BE ENJOYED BY NO MAN; it is a dissolution of government.
    The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.”

    That is a pretty powerful statement. And it rather sums up how the Supreme Court assessed the thoughts and intent of the founders as well in the Heller decision. And I think all the other sound bites about ‘preserving liberty’ and such have to be read with this statement in mind. And the textural references to insurrection that Stratplayer cites.
    And I am pretty sure the Supreme Court ‘consulted’ all of these kinds of sound bites taken from debates and articles as well.

    I think we can safely assume that these juvenile jerks are on their way out during the next election cycles.

    As for the U.N. “The U.N. is coming for your guns.” There’s just one problem with this narrative: it’s totally made up. A lie to it’s core.

    The Obama Administration required language in the initial 2009 General Assembly resolution acknowledging “national constitutional protections on private ownership, exclusively within their territory.”

    The Supreme Court has held that individual gun ownership is constitutionally protected, and international law cannot override the Constitution, the U.N. could not take American guns even if the Administration and Senate wanted it to.

    Yeah, I don’t have too much problem with responsible hunters. Being as I eat meat, I can’t bitch about how they procure the meat – after all, mine likely comes from a nasty farm. It would be hypocritical of me to criticize them if they’re responsible hunters.

    And quite frankly, deer, as much as we like to think of them as being beautiful, are really stupid. This time of year, you have to drive with special vigilance as they love to dart out in front of your car. Hitting one can at least be costly, at most, deadly, and the animal will suffer a lot in the process. That’s not to say I would go out of my way to kill them (or any other animal, I am not a hunter). I’m just a bit ambivalent about other people doing so. I just hope that the animal doesn’t suffer when it is killed for food (trophy killing bothers me greatly).

    What bothers me is that a lot of the guys who do hunt adopt the politics of the right wing (though not all of them), and are supporters of the NRA. It’s a cultural thing that I don’t embrace and don’t understand. Carrying weapons and hunting accessories that are marketed as “tactical” does nothing for my testosterone level.

  • Badgerite

    I think the Supreme Court probably looked exhaustively at all the writings of the time and came to the conclusion that the Second Amendment bestowed a right of self defense, not a right of insurrection. The Constitution itself provides ample means of redress for any dispute even with the Constitution itself through the amendment process. It nowhere bestows the right of insurrection probably because there are so many means to gather support to redress LEGITIMATE grievances in the legislative process through the other rights retained.
    And by legitimate, I do not mean that the president is a ‘secret Muslim’. Or the right to terrorize some ladies having lunch. I mean some concrete issue that the country has debated and developed a consensus about.

  • perljammer

    Yes, there will always be unreasonable people, as well as downright criminally insane ones.

    Yes, but defining tyranny as ‘anything I don’t agree with’ is not really a safeguard against tyranny. It is a prescription FOR tyranny. I would caution against ‘excerpts’ as opposed to reading whole tracts. For instance that Alexander Hamilton quote specifically says that power is more entrenched and harder to deal with in the states than it is in the federal government. That was the real point of the quote.
    And we did ;have an armed insurrection once. It was called the Civil War. And it was in defense of their ‘freedom’ to engage in human bondage. So—–

    The membership in hate groups since the President was first sworn in has grown at an alarming rate as the propaganda arm of the rightwing spew forth not just half truth but out and out violent rhetoric.

    There was a fever over the land. A fever of disgrace, of indignity, of hunger. We had a democracy, yes, but it was torn by elements within. Above all, there was fear. Fear of today, fear of tomorrow, fear of our neighbors, and fear of ourselves. Only when you understand that – can you understand what Hitler meant to us. Because he said to us: ‘Lift your heads! Be proud to be German! There are devils among us. Communists, Liberals, Jews, Gypsies! Once these devils will be destroyed, your misery will be destroyed.’ It was the old, old story of the sacrificial lamb. What about those of us who knew better? We who knew the words were lies, and worse than lies? Why did we sit silent? Why did we take part? Because we loved our country! What difference does it make if a few political extremists lose their rights? What difference does it make if a few racial minorities lose their rights? Ernst Janning Judgment at Nuremberg

I guess we have our answer now: the same people who were claiming he was going to do all those things (not yet but just you wait!) have now adopted the admirably economical policy of claiming that he’s already done them.

Without exception, they are avid(rabid) fans of Fox news, and various extreme right wing websites. Frankly, I have come to the conclusion that it’s these very cluster f types who need to be totally disarmed , and in many cases incarcerated . There is definitely a call to sedition going on from the likes of Fox and the others you mentioned, Heartland.

    All well and good, but you cannot deny that as much as they might have believed in the importance of armed rebellion as a means of resisting despotism, they were also deeply concerned about having the means to contain those violent impulses when they posed a threat to the democratic republic they had so recently fought and bled for. History shows us that more often than not, successful violent uprisings do not lead to a great flowering of liberty and democracy.

    be, from being infringed by the federal government.”

    Whatever you may think about “extratextual” writings of the time, the Federalist Papers were the vehicle by which the drafters of the Constitution explained in excruciating detail, the basis for what they were doing.

    Actually the NRA (back when it was the National Rifle Association) favored gun control back in the 1960s when they worried about groups like the Black Panthers arming and threatening rebellion. But once they thought their side had the firepower and with the election of a president of African and Irish ancestry, the group morphed into the Neurotic Right-Wing A**holes where even suggesting that people take a short course on how to safely use a gun before you can pack heat on the street is considered treason. Wilhelmsen is part and parcel of this new reality where if you can’t win at the ballot box, become an assassin and an anarchist. Maybe it is time that we stand up to these bullies.

    The Constitution was written when this country had no standing army. The Continental Army that won our independence was disbanded after the victory. The founding fathers did not want a permanent military–the people (read: males) were to stand ready to re-form into an army when needed. That’s why they were to have guns. But, we have an army now–a really big army–with really big weapons. What chance any group of civilians against those tanks, aircraft, bazooka, bombs and the rest? Stockpile all the guns you want. Fill the spare bedroom. Build a bunker. No gonna do jack all against rockets red glare..

    Yes, facts can be a bitch. There is also plenty of extratextual support for the argument that the primary purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that the federal government could not unilaterally disarm Southern state militias as a backhand means of undermining slavery. Southern militias were considered essential for containing the ever-present threat of violent slave uprisings. http://www.saf.org/lawreviews/bogus2.htm

    The fact remains that the power and means to suppress insurrection found its way into express Constitutional language, while words of encouragement and facilitation of armed rebellion are nowhere to be found. Why do you suppose that is? It is a fact that the 1792 Militia Acts were enacted by our Founding Fathers in order to put down citizen uprisings, and George Washington himself rode at the head of a force dispatched to crush the Whiskey Rebellion two years later. Having successfully launched a violent rebellion against an existing government, they were all too aware of the potential threat to democratic order posed by citizens taking up arms and shooting people whenever they didn’t get their way. It is one thing to fight a war to overthrow a despotic king; it is quite another to do the same to overthrow your fellow citizens who happen to outvote you in a democratic republic.

    Nice touch with the sighs of condescension.

    Funny, none of the take aways I got from this article included “let’s respond in kind”….

    Wherever he is, this man should expect a visit from a number of conservatively-dressed people driving black SUVs soon.

    One can’t help but take note of the name of his “organization”. He’s got the trifecta in its name – “Christian” “American Patriots” and “Militia” are all in there.

    One can be tempted to say that he probably doesn’t have the gumption to carry out the “mission” he is promoting, he’s merely trying to incite someone else to do it. But then we have to remember that there was Timothy Mc Veigh, and a whole host of other militia groups who’ve been busted for similar conspiracies. Ah yes, Extreme Christians. Spreading hatred and violence since the beginning.

    And Facebook? What the hell is going on here? The only reasonable explanation I can come up with is that they are keeping the page open at the request of the government so that they can track anyone who is sympathetic to this guy’s misguided cause. But in light of their stupidity regarding PFAW and RWW, perhaps I am giving them too much credit.

    I reported that post a few days ago and got back the ‘we don’t find it violates our community standards” BS from Facebook. I’m half tempted to do a test, posting a picture of FB headquarters and under it writing “We now have the authority to shoot Mark Zuckerberg, i.e. to kill him for his willful acts of treason against our country by providing voice to those wishing and justifying the assassination of the President of the United States”. How fast do you think Facebook will suspend me?

  • perljammer

    I know I will be downvoted for this, but here we go anyway. Facts can be a bitch.

    The various writings of the Founding Fathers around the time of the Constitutional Convention are replete with references to the language of the second Amendment and its meaning. They repeatedly note that the United States was unique among nations in recognizing the rights of its citizens to keep and bear arms. There are many references to the importance of the citizenry’s ability to defend against the tyranny of their government. See, for example, Federalist Papers, numbers 26, 29, and 46. Some choice quotes from the Founding Fathers can be found here: http://econfaculty.gmu.edu/wew/quotes/arms.html

    Moving ahead in time, we have this quote from Hubert H. Humphrey in 1959: “Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms…. The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard, against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible.”

  • Jonas Grumby

    Well. I’m sure the Secret Service needed something to do today.

  • cole3244

    you know if the left started using violence like the right do i bet the rw ass bags who threaten at the drop of a hat would be more timid in their talk because we all know they really are chicken hawks when confronted with equal aggression.
    also i can prove the left don’t act similarly to those they disagree with, how can i do this, simple, rush limbaugh is alive, if there was a person on the left talking like him they would have been assassinated long ago i guarantee it.

  • iamlegion

    Agreed. This definitely crosses the line into an active threat the Secret Service should be interested in. I hope this jackass enjoys his time in prison.

    If I made a list of people you country would be better if they got shot in the head, they would all be republicans, probably with Scalia at the top, that dudes a menace.

  • TampaZeke

    There seems to be a significant portion of the right wing for whom the constitution, in its entirety, is the second amendment; and the first (but only as it applies to THEM).

  • http://buddybest.tripod.com/index.html BuddyNovinski

    Apparently Facebook does not know the meaning of ‘fighting words”. While the First Amendment requires that government has an interest in prohibiting free speech, the only use this rant has is for parody.

  • MyrddinWilt

    Don’t bother. The correct place to report this is the Secret Service

    http://www.secretservice.gov/contact.shtml

    Under federal law they are obliged to investigate every report.

    While the threat is couched in language that the author obviously thinks makes it legal, there are several hundred people in jail right now for similar threats. What matters is the intent and whether a reasonable person would interpret it as a threat or incitement.

    This is a BFD as Biden would say. If I was running the case I would dispatch agents to Facebook HQ and have them demand to see Zuckerberg in person, immediately. I have worked with those people.

    The “insurrectionary theory” of the 2nd Amendment has got to be the most pernicious pile of bullshit Constitutional exegesis ever conceived. The term “insurrection” appears 4 times in the Constitution, twice in reference to Congress’s power to call out the militia to suppress said insurrections, once in reference to a ban on anyone who has engaged in insurrection from holding public office and once in reference to the prohibition against public payment of any debts incurred in aid of rebellion or insurrection. It appears exactly zero times in the 2nd Amendment. The 2nd Amendment does mention the term “militia,” and the militia, of course, is what Congress, pursuant to its express Constitutional authority, can call out to suppress insurrections. The framers were very clearly concerned about the threat of insurrection and made damn sure the Constitution gave the government the power to crush rebellion decisively. The notion that they simultaneously wanted to encourage and facilitate that which they obviously feared so much is absurd.

    John, you wanna hear something funny and pathetic at the same time? I reported him and his page to Facebook. Facebook allowed them both to stay on.

  • chrislib

    Some christian, some patriot. Good thing FB shut down Right Wing Watch, eh?

  • Indigo

    How does our ever vigilant NSA-CIA-Pentagon-SS Coalition not know this and arrest this man?

  • HeartlandLiberal

    I checked his Facebook page just now, the post is still up.

    Here is a very useful URL: http://www.secretservice.gov/contact.shtml

    Please, everyone reading this, report this batsh*t crazy f*cker to the Secret Service with these screen snaps.

    I don’t know what is more disturbing. His insane rantings, or those who so quickly agree with him. There is a total disconnect between reality and the insane fevered imaginations embodied in the ravings of these idiots.

    And by the way, I lay the blame completely at the feet of the GOP, the Koch Brothers, and all rightwing disinformation machinery.

  • lynchie

    Just put him in jail. Enough already of allowing these racist christian bigots from having a forum to spout their hatred.
