St. Petersburg, FL — A Republican Florida House candidate says the U.S. Secret Service paid him a visit after he called for President Obama to be hanged.
They shouldn’t be called Secret Service anymore. Maybe Suppressive Service - better yet, Suppressive Stasi, Secret Stasi....or other more appropriate moniker.
That’s the guy!?!?!?
Wow, just wow.
He should know better than this.
Please, I pray as I always do, let not harm come to one hair of Obama’s head.
If I ever see his visage painted on velvet, alongside JFK, RFK, MLK, I am seriously going to have to kill myself.
If he was a democrat and called to hang Bush it could have been all different.
Regardless of his personal opinion, this is a very stupid, self-destructive thing to do. Here is a man who knows how to attract a ton of negative attention practically for free. This action is so dumb, I wonder if he’s a plant; a democrat who wants to make the republicans look mean, ignorant and dangerous. If this is legitimate, and he really is just a candidate expressing his opinion, then he is not intelligent enough to be a Tea Party or Rep. member. We (most conservatives) don’t want him.
Naw, back off! He’s good.
First off he was quoting another tweet and said he agreed.
Secondly, “treason” is a US Code violation with specific criteria. So if he’s saying someone comitted treason well that implies a forthcoming trial and conviction.
Third, what is the sentence for conviction of treason?
He’s a law and order conservative.
Don’t make yourself look bad.

By now, everyone has heard of the things that the federal government has been doing to its citizens. It is a clear case of ignoring the Constitution they swore to upholdof course, all in the name of protecting us from those bad guys!
I think the Florida Attorney General would be in her rights and our best interest to pursue criminal charges against any federal agents that performed any such unwarranted surveillance activities against any citizens of Florida and also to pursue civil penalties on our behalf against those companies who cooperated with them. The Constitution of the United States is a restrictive document for a reason. It does not exist to limit the people, but to limit the government so that it does not oppress the people.
I also called my congressman, Bill Young, to demand that impeachment proceedings begin against this president and his administration. We cant have this kind of thing go unchecked. Waiting until the next election is stupid. How much more bullying can we take?
We shouldnt be taking any. Government was not meant for bullying but for protection. Somehow, we have let the protectors think that we owe them total control of our lives. This is wrong. No, we dont owe them that. They owe us their seats and an apology.
When did the public servants decide they were the public masters?
He should not have said it....but let me ask.....how many stories did we see about the threats to Bush?
This guy has guts, and is right.
He has precisely the right mindset to turn this country around.
The libs are not going to just surrender, it is going to take really strong-willed opposition, just like his.
The only way his text is self-destructive is because the country is full of wimps like you.
PS presidents and candidates for POTUS and many other offices have been using rhetoric like this for years.
Pick up a history book once in your life.
Have a nice day.
If a poll were conducted in the Secret Service 9 out of 10 would dodge the bullet vice stepping in front.
Well, traitors should be hanged...So whats the problem here???
Why are people getting their collective panties in a wad???
Ohhhhh, wait...This guys a republican...
Wow, but still, was it a threat, or just a statement of fact, based upon the laws of this country???
Reciting law, and legal historical case studies, is not a crime, IIRC...
Just my opinion...
Frankly, I’d have to see the poll....I recall a woman shouting at Clinton as he walked through a public area..something along the lines of “you suck”. She was detained illegally, IIRC.
Likewise for many, many other examples. However, you only heard of the SS not making ‘visits’ for all the mayhem and threats during W’s tenure.
