Assassinating ObamaPosted in Politics on September 29th, 2009
It seems that a recent user generated poll on Facebook has Obama’s followers very upset and all up in arms, figuratively at least. It asked a simple, unpleasant question – should President Obama be killed?
Quite unsurprisingly Obama’s devout followers raised secular hell over this and reported the whole thing to Facebook and the US Secret Services. Facebook, being ever an avid avoider of controversy, pulled the poll off their social network. The US Secret Service is currently looking for the individual who made the poll, though any form of prosecution is highly and thankfully unlikely.
Was the poll crass? Certainly and in the extreme! Given the Liberals’ and Blacks’ overwhelming fears and the incessant meme of Obama’s assassination that they’ve perpetuated, a poll of this nature is cruelly akin to poking sticks at caged animals.
Was the poll stupid? Yes, and quite juvenile as well. The choices it contained were sophomoric and showed a gross lack of knowledge of both history and the American political system.
Was the poll, as the Liberals rant, an incitement to violence against President Obama? No, not in any sane person’s mind. Questions of this sort, no matter how uncomfortable or poorly phrased, are not an incitement to violence nor are such questions, in a supposedly free society, to be harshly discouraged. Therefor I have recreated the poll below:
In truth I see little worthwhile use for the above poll except as a possible reminder to President Obama that he not universal loved or admired and the growing displeasure the American people have shown him should already serve that purpose well enough. I’ve recreated it mostly because I believe that outlawing such questions in the public forum is one of the worst forms of tyranny, and one Liberals have grown exceedingly fond of.
In case anyone cares, I voted “No.” I see no reason at this juncture to kill President Obama. I cannot say that he has acted in a manner that makes calling for his removal necessary.
Since I’m not even, as yet, demanding that Congress impeach President Obama, how could I endorse his assassination? I can’t see where violent action is merited when civil measures haven’t even been attempted as of yet.
The sole benefit that I can find in the poll, other than the visceral joy that scaring and angering the Liberals gives me, was that it, at its core, asked – in an admittedly piss-poor manner – a very valid and uniquely American question – at what point is violence against the US government or individuals within it acceptable?
If you don’t believe that is a valid question then you’ve either forgotten or never learned the history of America, how it was founded, or the expectations and intent of our founding fathers.
There may well come a time when Americans have to use violence to depose our government or people within it. If we can’t even ask the question, we’re doomed to tyranny.
NOTE: For you Liberals who are terrified of anyone who would ask such questions and wish to do something about it, my local US Secret Service Field Office can be contacted at (718) 840-1000. Feel free to report me. 😉
