Larry Klayman was recently the topic of one of Chris Matthews segments on Hardball. Klayman is no stranger to hate for President Obama, and recently told a group of Teaparty protesters in Washington that President Obama should “surrender and come out with his hands in the air.”
Klayman, and others like him, use eliminationist rhetoric with no regard for who they might inspire. Here’s apost from Facebook taking Klayman a few giant steps further (and yes, the Secret Service is on it). It says, in part:
We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him. 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.
This isn’t the first assassination threat posted on social media and it won’t be the last. Mr. Wilhelmsen is a militia man, a self-proclaimed good Christian who is standing up for his country while he calls for the assassination of our President just days ahead of the 50-year observance of the anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
I get the first amendment, free speech, yea I get it. But when a nut is inciting other nuts to “kill” the president, then that nut has clearly crossed the line and has given up his freedom.
Again, the Secret Service is on it.
I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
