Default GOP Candidate Says Hang Obama - Secret Service Visits

Desperate times call for desperate measures

What kinds of people dream of populating the asylum also known as the Florida House of Representatives? Meet Joshua Black, the street-preacher Republican candidate who made a name for himself on MLK Day by calling for the execution of President Obama.




After making this statement, Mr. Black wanted to qualify his belief ... which was

Which has prompted an opportunity for Mr. Black to make some new friends

Say you're a rookie political candidate eager to raise your profile. Here's one sure way to do that that you DO NOT want to try: Publicly call for the president of the United States to be hanged.

That's what Republican state House candidate Joshua Black did on Twitter yesterday. It generated an widely read article in the Tampa Bay Times, a lot of new Twitter followers, a call from Anderson Cooper's guest booker, an interview for Political Connections on Bay News 9 and, naturally, a visit from the Secret Service.

Black, a taxi driver, told Al Ruechel and me this afternoon that Secret Service representatives were waiting for him at his house

Guys an idiot.

But he's hardly he first to wish death on someone. It only makes headlines if it's a not a liberal making the threats.
Both sides are just as guilty.

Do not know whether or not this meets your definition of headlines


Man arrested for alleged threats to former President Bush, Mitt Romney
By Carol Cratty, CNN


A man was arrested by the Secret Service in New Orleans on Wednesday for allegedly making threats against former President George W. Bush and presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said William Thomas Driscoll, 66, was taken into custody on the charge of making threats against a former president or a candidate protected by the service.

According to an affidavit, Driscoll "self-committed" himself to Seaside Behavioral Center on February 28. The next day a psychiatrist there alerted the Secret Service that Driscoll allegedly had said he wanted to kill Bush and Romney.

Secret Service checks Eminem's 'dead president' lyric

NEW YORK (CNN) -- The Secret Service is trying to determine if any action needs to be taken regarding a lyric from rapper Eminem that may be a threat to President Bush.

The lyric comes from a bootleg Eminem recording -- one of several from the rapper making rounds on the Internet over the past week.

In the song called "We Are American," Eminem sings: "(Expletive) money, I don't rap for dead presidents. I'd rather see the president dead." ...

A Secret Service probe is routine when something that could be construed as a threat to the president is brought to agents' attention.

"Dead presidents" is slang for cash because of the depiction of several presidents on currency.

Secret Service confiscates anti-Bush drawings by 15-year-old

A few political sketches took a 15-year-old Prosser boy from his art class to questioning by the Secret Service -- and thrust him into a debate over free speech.

On Friday, the boy was questioned by the Secret Service after his art teacher turned in sketches by the boy featuring President Bush. In one, Bush's head was on a stake. In another, he was dressed as the devil, firing off rockets. The caption on one sketch read, "End the War -- on errorism."

Of course none of those folks were running for office

I'd say this guy has no chance of getting elected, but this is Florida we're talking about. They elected an actual lizard person as their governor.

Icke has claimed on multiple occasions that many of the world leaders are, or are possessed by, reptilians ruling the world.

Are you saying the Secret Service should have investigated Brauer?

Or are you saying that the liberal media did not cover what Brauer said?

Sacramento Democratic Party Leader Resigns After Tweeting Death Wish For Republican Staffer’s Kids

http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2013/...staffers-kids/

If you would have left it at the right and left having their share of nut cases I would have agreed with you.

But you couldn't resist claiming this is all part of the liberal media only covering right wing nut jobs - so I noted GOP Presidents getting threats also gets coverage from the so-called LameStream Media

FWIW a political candidate saying the President of the U.S. should be hung seems to me a bit more newsworthy than a political aide going after another political aide

Maybe you can find a Dem candidate saying W should have been executed, although that would seem to undermine your point about those sorts of threats not being covered
