WND Writer Wants Black Legislators Hung by Nooses

Andrea Shea King, a right-wing radio talk show host and writer for the Worldnetdaily, is so upset that some Democrats skipped Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu’s speech to Congress that she thinks they should be “hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol building.”

King’s comments were made last month on her radio program, “The Andrea Shea King Show,” according to RWW.

She noted that most of the congressmen missing the speech are members of the Congressional Black Caucus. King said that members of Congress, unlike President Obama, will eventually be up for reelection and “could pay with their jobs.” However, in audio posted by Right Wing Watch, King said she hoped their punishment would go one step further.

“I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol building,” King said in the audio clip. “Most of those members who are opting out of attending the speech are members of the Congressional Black Caucus. And their districts are all dumb clucks. Because the dumb clucks wouldn’t be electing these people if they knew better.”

Just more evidence of something I’ve said many, many times: There simply is no limit for the right wing. There is no declaration too extreme, no claim too dishonest, no statement so barbaric and appalling that some wingnut won’t say it. And there will be no repercussions for it.

    What if instead of lynching, we simply rounded them up — concentrated them, if you will — into camps?

    I’m curious as to the details (of who skipped). Is there really a correlation with the black caucus, or was there wider skipping by Democrats and the WND just reported it with a bigoted spin? If there really was a correlation, what was the reason? I can’t think of a policy reason why the CBC would have a particular beef with Netanyahu, though I’ll admit I’m not up on the recent doings of either.

    Strange fruit indeed.

    What a despicable human being.

  • Mr Ed

    So the Pro-Life Party wants to hang elected officials for skipping a speech and shot anyone who touches a member of the same sex.

    If she was given the OK to kill some politicians she’d run away screaming.

    Look, just because the disagreed with the circumstances behind his appearance there doesn’t mean they have the right to protest. It’s not like Bibi was there to advocatie for Obama.

    Maybe she’d be happier on the planet H. Beam Piper used in “A Planet for Texans”.

    What, you’re not going to tell us how “refreshing” their honesty is?

  • Alverant

    She also accused them of putting their agendas above the good of their state and nation … without a hint of irony.

    Why does Ms King believes anyone, in or out of Congress, is obliged to listen to Mr Netenyahu?

  • peterh

    Why does Ms King believe anyone, in or out of Congress, would give her the time of day?

  • zenlike

    Strange, those rightwingers are always whining about US policy allegedly being set by foreign interests (UN etc), now they invite a foreign head of state to come dictate what US foreign policy should be and they applaud like idiots.

    Millennialism, pre-, post-, or some other type. The Evangelicals believe that Jesus will soon come back (1988, I think), land in Israel, and establish an Earthly Worldwide Kingdom, and that the U.S. had better be a friend of Israel when that happens or we’re sunk.

    I’ve received mail in the past wanting me to donate money so that Jews in Russia can move to Israel.

    I’ve tried to convince my non-millennial believing Christian friends that our foreign policy influencers who think the U.S. must be on Israel’s side do so for reasons that they don’t think are Biblical, but I can’t get them to listen. (Well, some success: My kids have listened. If I’m going to live in the closet I might as well do some good from there.)

    It is rare that a politician will admit to this reasoning, but Louie Gohmert actually got up before Congress and said so, and he brags about it on his Congressional website.

    It’s these nutjobs that are completely responsible for the bad stuff happening in the middle east. Had Millennialists in the US and England not supported the immigration to Palestine by Jews since WWII, it seems highly unlikely that all of these wars would be going on.

    I don’t know why specifically members of the Congressional Black Caucus skipped.

    The only thing that I can think of (specifically) that might be the cause of such a correlation is the persecution faced by many members of Beta Israel (Ethiopia’s Jewish Community) in Israel, especially with incidents like this one

    The legislators that I heard interviewed said that they’d watch the speech on TV. I like seeing protocol – and breaches of protocol – breached. It’s probably more effective than speeches to an empty chamber.

    1. When a head of state addresses a joint session of Congress, it’s bad form for Congressmembers to skip the speech.

    2. However, it is the responsibility of the Executive branch to receive heads of state.

    3. The present visit by Benjamin Netanyahu was arranged by John Boehner without consulting the Executive branch.

    4. Therefore, the present visit by Netanyahu is not a visit by a head of state.

    5. Therefore, there is no particular reason why Congressmembers should feel obligated to attend, unless their own constituents would object to their non-attendance.

    Looks to me like it adds up.

    Perhaps they should have attended and yelled “you lie” during his speech. That would be the Republican way.

  • dingojack

    And with Bibi, it’d have a ‘truth defence’.

    And where the hangman’s noose goes, the pyre’s will follow as surely at night following day….

    Christfascists are getting all fluffy tailed and sweaty at the prospect. god is indeed a god on the side of the pompous and dumb…hang a few devil influenced politicos today burn a shed load of atheists and scientists tomorrow, dance gay boy dance, wimmin’s back into the kitchen accept those called by god’s good grace of course…….all’s good!

    Gods plan is coming together…and the fans are delirious with righteousness.

    Or at least one of them is and so much so she seems to have let their plans slip out ahead of the official announcement…but the rapture…oh tis indeed glorious!

    If disrespecting our own head of state isn’t a Capital offense, why should disrespecting a FOREIGN head of state be one?

    Checking around with Google, it looks like while she’s had AM radio shows in the past, she may currently only be “broadcasting” via the internet.

    Gosh, Raging Bee; as much as you complain about how Ed blogs, and what he blogs about, I’d think your time would be better spent elsewhere.

  • dugglebogey

    This happens to me in the south every once in a while, but have you ever seen someone who desperately wants to use the word “nigger” but won’t because they know they can’t get away with it, but you can always tell they really REALLY want to?
