Those muslim scum will remove Obama’s head if they get the opportunity.

Yes, the list is too long to catalog....
Bravo Sierra. I never even saw on until I was in high school and even that was only because I lived in DC and attended a school with lots of diplomat kids. Never saw another one until fairly recently when the damn flood gates must have been opened. Other than the occasional gas station owner.
