Conservative Blogger Calls For Obama's Assassination
Solly Forell is the conservative blogger of Barack Obama was an American Electorate Mistake. On Forell Twitter profile, he claims to be a more "authentic" black man than Obama. (I wasn't aware there was an authenic black test.) Forell openly urged for the assassination of Obama. Twitter has deleted that post and another highly questionable tweet. Forell's tweet is not protected by the First Amendment. Threats against the President's life violates federal law under 18 USC Sec. 871.
Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.
Forell is now backtracking. Me thinks that has something to do with being investigated by the Secret Service.
Can anything that angers & divides us like #hcr really B good 4 America? U.S. has bad credit? Our rhetoric is vile. Mine included. Sad day.
Forell is forming at the mouth because more Americans will have access to health care. As a progressive, I feel the mandate is is corpoate give-away. That doesn't make me want to go all Lee Harvey Oswald on the President. Bill O'Reilly rails against the anonymous commenters on Daily Kos. What to take bets on if O'Reilly ever mentions Forell on his show?
