ML I'm absolutely with you! I've pretty much been praying for protection for him & his family since he started running for President. I did so for Hillary as well. It's just too unacceptable (his election) for some (too many) people.

and sometimes remember to whitelight them as well

Stay classy Central Valley lady.

Quote:
A Turlock woman who used a racial slur to describe President Barack Obama on Facebook and wrote "maybe he will get assassinated" is being investigated by the United States Secret Service.

The post by Denise Helms, which has since been removed, went up right after the president won his second term Tuesday night. But she doesn't plan to apologize.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal," Helms told FOX 40 Sacramento.

"The assassination part is kind of harsh. I'm not saying I'd go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen I don't think I'd care one bit. … It's not something I would be upset about."

The Secret Service said all threats or perceived threats are taken seriously and investigated, but declined further comment.

"I don't understand what I did wrong," Helms said. "I didn't say, 'Hey, someone go do this.' "

Helms also said that, despite using a racial slur, she doesn't consider herself racist.

Gee, yeah, who'd have thunk daring to make any sort of "joke" about assassinating the leader of our entire nation would cause ANY sort of controversy whatsoever?

Wow. Lady, the word "dumbass" doesn't even begin to describe you. I may have disagreed vehmently with Bush when he was in office, but I sure as hell wasn't hoping for him to be assassinated, and wouldn't be happy if he actually had been, either. I generally try not to wish death upon our presidents.

I love it when bigots say this. The contradiction goes right over their heads.

I think I lost a couple of "friends" on Twitter and Facebook because I admitted I voted for Obama. Could've been other reasons, but the timing to suspicious.

Hmph. Whatever.

Oh, certainly not.........




.... since he's only the President that has gotten the
most death threats of any Modern President!

If not getting close to, tying, or
surpassing President Lincoln "record, thats all!!!


Nothing to see here, folks . Move along.....

I love the smell of idiot racists and homophobes exposing their sheer vileness on the internet for all the world (including their current/future employers) to see.

This is the one thought keeping me from crying while reading articles pointing out the disgusting, shameful things people have been posting on Twitter/Tumblr/Facebook this week. Just completely appalling and depressing.

Welcome to the internet; that shit's permanent.

Excellent point, Cori. That is a comforting thought.

You get in trouble for that shit, I have absolutely zero sympathy for you. You deserve it.

Very well said, cori. Thanks for that reminder!

it's astonishing how maybe in the fevered hate of that moment that the posters would forget how permanent that stuff is! Or plain stupid.

As long as people like that are still either stupid or fevered more of them will come up as yellow, orange or red-flagged and be checked out

Well unless of course their views mesh just perfectly with the current/future employer. There'd be at least a few I suppose.

Can't wait Obama to get this country back on track. His first four years were Bush's fault. Now it's all him. I need a job soon too. Sick of living off the government. Although i'm getting kinda lazy doing same.
