Republican: Obama should be hanged
WTSP 10 News ^ | Jan 21, 2014 | Preston Rudie

Posted on 01/22/2014 2:25:18 AM PST by Brown Deer

A GOP candidate for the Florida House of Representatives is under fire from his own party and said he’s been visited by the Secret Service after he tweeted Monday that President Obama should be hanged for treason.

Joshua Black, 31-year-old Republican candidate for Florida House District 68, quoted a tweeter, saying “I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high.” Black added, “agreed.”

Black then replied, “Execution is the appropriate punishment for traitors."

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.

More from candidate Black:

Criminals in office
Friday, June 7th, 2013 @ 1:30PM

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 uphold–of 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 can’t have this kind of thing go unchecked. Waiting until the next election is stupid. How much more bullying can we take?

We shouldn’t 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 don’t owe them that. They owe us their seats and an apology.

You're wrong.

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.

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.

Your opinion is constitutionally correct in my mind too. What did he say that is so “mean spirited”. His excellency has been operating above the constitution for years and no one has called him on it. I believe he was over heard saying to some Ruskie wait till after the election so he could implement some more defense cuts. Sounds like treason to me.

Well I have to agree that impeachment proceedings should begin.

No matter what the Senate may or may not do.

Obama's violations should be formalized and written down in the House.

Are you saying that between him and a Democrat candidate you’d vote for the Democrat?

He’s a conservative in FL so there is no chance in the first place of the GOP or even FL Republicans assisting him. So what support has he lost? Oh, the moderate Republicans and independents, the ones who vote RINO and D? They’d wouldn’t vote for a conservative anyways.

He’s getting lots of free advertising to conservatives and race-conscious voters aka his potential constituents. That’s a win in my book. And btw, many FL blacks don’t like Obama. If you recall he was heckled by a group in a ‘08 campaign stop in central FL. They told him to get out of FL and take his bs with him and held up signs to that effect.

Yeah, he’s lost the MSNBC and CNN viewers. Boohoo, mindless idiots to begin with. No loss there.

I am bone weary of people who insist they do not agree with Obama—yet they are willing to tolerate TREASON. Had the commie from Kenya not carried that D attached to his coat—the captive press would have been screaming their affirmation.I have No respect for quisling Republicrats. Call them “progressives” or moderates— or whatever.I agree with this young man who reminds me of Allen West.Agreeing with American history and our Laws is now stupid? WOW!

Sounds like a case of the Secret Service going beyond the call of duty to harass Obama’s political enemies. Did they ask Black to show them his papers in typical Gestapo fashion?

Been sayin' so for years              

If the Continental Army could go barefoot in the snow for our liberty,
I can surely, at the very least, add another public voice in defense of the Constitution they made possible.

Bravo, Mr. Black !

It should be noted that Mr. Black is calling for Obama to be hanged for treason *after* due process of law (including a grand-jury indictment, a trial and any applicable appeals). There is absolutely *nothing* for the Secret Service to see here.

Did he actually say hanged, or executed?

Hanging is appropriate for traitors, but one can only be a traitor to one's own country. In the absence of transparency there is no clear proof that the subject of his ire is a US citizen.

Non-uniformed enemy spies and saboteurs are shot on sight.

Just sayin', and only as a finer legal point...

Besides, if we start hanging traitors, I'm not sure we have enough lamp posts! (Just kidding, NSA, JUST KIDDING!!!!)
