A Florida Republican discovered a quick way to get a visit from the Secret Service.
The Daily Caller reports that an African American candidate for state assembly tweeted Tuesday that he believes President Obama should be arrested and hanged.
But the candidate, Joshua Black, didn’t stop there.
He posted this on Facebook:
To everyone who was offended that I said that the POTUS should be hanged for treason, this is the man who droned Al-Awaki on “suspicion of terrorism”–not proof–and later killed his 15-year-old son for nothing more than being his son.
This is also the man who sought to have Bradley Manning and Eric Snowden executed for treason when they didn’t kill anyone, nor does the US government pretend to believe that they cost any spies their lives.
This would be exactly what the President has done to others, and, as Jesus said, “the measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again.” I make no apologies for saying that the President is not above the People. If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he.
So, don’t stop at impeachment. Remove him. Try him before a jury (the very right that he arbitrarily denied to al-Awaki and his 15-year-old son), and, upon his sure convictions, execute him. Thus has he done, thus it should be done to him.
Although Black later insisted he was “not threatening the president,” the Secret Service gave him a house visit, the Daily Caller wrote.
