It’s not every day that you find a black conservative calling for the nation’s first black president to be lynched. Meet Joshua Black, a Republican candidate for the Florida state legislature from St. Petersburg. He posted this message to Twitter:
“@civilwarcometh: @BrandonMArms @RedNationRising I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high. http://www.commieblaster.com/ ” Agreed
Then he moved to his Facebook page and defended himself:
To everyone who was offended that I said that the POTUS should be hanged for treason, this is the man who droned Al-Awaki on “suspicion of terrorism”–not proof–and later killed his 15-year-old son for nothing more than being his son.
This is also the man who sought to have Bradley Manning and Eric Snowden executed for treason when they didn’t kill anyone, nor does the US government pretend to believe that they cost any spies their lives.This would be exactly what the President has done to others, and, as Jesus said, “the measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again.” I make no apologies for saying that the President is not above the People. If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he.
So, don’t stop at impeachment. Remove him. Try him before a jury (the very right that he arbitrarily denied to al-Awaki and his 15-year-old son), and, upon his sure convictions, execute him. Thus has he done, thus it should be done to him.
Now, I happen to agree with him that Obama was wrong in every one of those situations. But no, that is not “treason.” And anyone wanna take bets on whether he was saying the same thing about Bush for similar constitutional overreaches? Yeah, I doubt it.
