You should never make threats against a President, no matter how dispicable they are.

I despise Carter, Clinton and Zero with every fiber of my being, but I wouldn’t be stupid enough to threaten them with violence.

It’s not as if he threatened to kidnap Bush or made a film about whacking him.

Exactly, no matter what you feel about a president, an attack on him is an attack on the office which is basically declaring war on this country. You don't like him, go the legal channels.

“It was this type of conduct that may have allowed for the recruitment of Marine Lance Corporal Kody Brittingham, who, as of last December, was found to be heavily connected with the white nationalist movement and is now under federal investigation for premeditating a plot to assassinate Obama.”

Have no info on credibility on the source, but if Europe knows about this it is interesting. Nothing in the news here.

Don't ask for my money though. Anybody (military or civilian) stupid enough to threaten any POTUS (elect) is too stupid to be worth it.

While I agree it wasn’t smart of him to make a threat, there may be extenuating circumstances. Perhaps the Marine is suffering from post traumatic stress, or maybe he lost his house, or maybe he is pissed that he isn’t going to get a raise while deadbeats are going to get their mortgages paid.

It is true, he is an idiot if he said this. However, he is only a 20 year-old idiot and he is entitled to a defense. Twenty-year-olds aren’t always known for being particularly bright — they’re often overgrown teenagers.

Actually, Carter wouldn't understand. Guy's totally senile now. Billzo is no longer worth the powder and lead.

And Obama is on his own. He runs with a rough crowd. Some of his friends among the Leftwingtards and mad bombers he pals around with will probably take care of all his (and our) problems sooner rather than later.

Frankly, I'm not concerned with that guy's safty ~ and he's obviously not either.

“We take all threats against the president and other high officials of the United States very seriously,” Holding said. “The threat itself represents a disruption of the United States government, even if no actual attempt is made to carry out the threat.”

What a crock. Except when it was directed at President Bush, more then once, I think.

What does the Constitution say about the channels- Impeachment (unless other channels find he was not legally qualified).. if that doesn’t happen, then yes, elections. We have a reset button every four years.

There are some subjects that are taboo or politically incorrect.
Seems ya can’t talk of what if something were to happen to the “magic negro”.
Can’t talk about him being a black guy with a shady past.
Can’t talk about him maybe not being born in the U.S.A.
Can’t talk about him being a socialist
Can’t talk about his antiAmerican p.o.s. big ass wife.
Is this clown going to use the f.b.i. as the f-ing thought police?
Yeah, ya can’t call for action against the guy but ya can’t keep me from hoping.

I think that they are very brave and, because of their unique position as serving in a potentially life-threatening function at the whim of the POTUS, deserving of being heard and taken seriously by the courts.

For threatening the president, I suggest it is incumbent upon the courts martial to show that the man in question really is the president.

Let’s see that birth certificate.

Or maybe he's just not thrilled with calling a black guy "Sir". See reply 12.

Obama will use all his resources and gain absolute control with essentially a “martial law” justification. Thereafter employing his “Janisaries” to quietly/permenantly quell dissent. Who will stop him?

I just saw on the news that an Eithiopian refugee has also been charged with threatening Zero.

Can I wish a high-pressure case of Montezuma’s revenge on “that one”, or is that verboten, as well? ;-P

Seriously, though, there have been numerous instances where Obamabots have conflated more innocent speech into threats, so I’d like to see more facts on this, or any, such threat against the Kenyan. If this Marine stated a threat, he spoke stupidly, and quite possibly illegally.

The Marine is a moron if this is true, and the prosecution would be appropriate.

But, beyond this you will see now that the Holder and the Justice Department has more money directed to investigate civil rights violations under Obama’s new stimulus plan, you can bet that most speech against the “One” will be viewed as hate speech.

The system could either force the issue by ordering them to be deployed or make it a non-issue by burying them someplace stateside and safe.

If one or both were to actually refuse a deployment, which would lead to charges, then the issue would bec ome national.

He’s an active duty Marine. He should have known better. I deal with this all the time with my soldiers. (I’m a Major in the Army). No matter how much you dislike the CINC, you just can’t trash him or threaten him in public.

Hopefully never. I still have a shred of hope that the American people will at least rise up against Obama's more radical power grabs and squeeze him enough to stop him. Four years is a long time - none of us really know what could happen to Zero's popularity and Presidency between now and 2012.
