Here’s a story that hasn’t received much mainstream media coverage, but Black oriented blogs have picked up the slack:
A rabid Tea Party wannabe politician in California called for the assassination of President Obama and his “monkey children” in a recent Facebook rant – and then defended his right to do so Monday.
Jules Manson, who failed miserably in his 2011 bid for a City Council seat in Carson, Calif., urged the sickening reprisal, saying Obama’s support of a revised military authorization bill last week was an act of “treason” that “eroded” constitutional protections.
“It must be countered with assassinations onto them and their children,” he wrote in the original posting that has since been scrubbed from his Facebook profile.
“Assassinate the fucken nigger and his monkey children,” he prodded, according to a screen grab obtained by YourBlackWorld.com.
An angry backlash quickly ensued, and Manson, 48, toned down the vile rhetoric Monday while defending his right to spew hate.
“Once you have taken the position that anyone should be imprisoned for careless emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance, you deserve what your government has become,” he wrote in the new Facebook post.
“All I can really say is to be careful what you wish for because setting such a precedence can come back to bite you,” he warned.
“I have felt deeply regretful and apologized for my past mistakes. Can you do the same?” he asked his followers.
No one answered a telephone number listed for Manson’s residence in a Carson trailer park Monday.
I’m sure Mr. Manson has a visit from the Secret Service somewhere in his immediate future.
The Tea Party apologists may now begin with distancing themselves from one racist wannabee and shrugging off his threat against the president and his children as an isolated incident that has no reflection upon their goals.
Just wondering how many isolated incidents it takes before it starts become a worrisome trend?
Predictably, some apologists for the Tea Party have claimed Manson isn’t really a member. It’s not clear he isn’t connected in any way to the Tea Party either. A search of “Jules Manson, Tea Party” sure yields a ton of results.
The dilemma for a movement without any clearly defined leadership, organizational structure or principles is any asshole can hitch a ride and claim to be part of the club.
The same lack of a coherent form and purpose that supposedly makes the Tea Party so formidable also makes it easy to tie them to racists and other fringe mentalities.
Sucks to be them.
Nothing new about racist rantings against the president and his family. The Internet is full of hateful creeps hang out pouring their venom all over whatever it is they despise.
Manson got a visit from a pair of Secret Service agents about his death wish for President Obama. He wasn’t arrested, but he can be sure his name goes on some government database watch list as being naughty, not nice.
There should be a special section in hell for punks who single out children for death. You really have to be a total piece of shit excuse for a human being to have that kind of hatred in your heart for anyone.
It must be a terrible thing for a miserable little piece of trailer trash like Manson to wake up knowing there’s a Black man in the White House and I sincerely hope he’s got four more years of gnashing his teeth, face-palming his head and staying a pissed off, angry White man.
