California libertarian and Tea Party darling Jules Manson is caught calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama and his children. On Sunday, many Facebook users were greeted by the shocking spectacle of a California libertarian and Ron Paul supporter by the name of Jules Manson advocating for the assassination of President Barack Obama. Manson, a failed politician, recently ran for and lost a seat on the City of Carson’s City Council last March. The following is the text of Manson’s racist, treasonous, deplorable post:
“Assassinate the (expletive deleted by examiner editors) n****r and his monkey children”
Manson posted the disturbing and openly racist call to assassinate Obama and Obama’s children on his own Facebook wall, which was open to the public. Manson, a Ron Paul libertarian, was angry with Obama over a policy matter.
Manson has since taken down the post and made his Facebook page private, due in no small way to the outrage rightfully directed at him. But that was after Manson tried to rationalize that his use of the n-word didn't make a racist. No, seriously.
Two hours after making the offensive post, and after being bombarded by hundreds of Facebook users outraged by his racist call to assassinate the leader of the free world, Manson made a bizarre Facebook post, presumably in the hopes of justifying his unjustifiable rant. There Mason argued that using the word “n****r” does not make him a racist.
Okay, then. Manson ran as a "Libertarian conservative" for City Council for the City of Carson in Los Angeles County and lost. Manson was upset over the NDAA vote, although curiously, his call for assassination didn't involve anyone in Congress who overwhelmingly voted for it, nor does it explain his inclusion of the Obama children or use of really repulsive racist language. Whatever caused his outrage, I hope he thinks it's worth the Secret Service visit he so richly deserves.
I hate to break it to Mr. Axis-of-Evil David Frum -- who was more than happy to be one of those conservative flame throwers when he was still in the club -- but Fox finally getting rid of Palin doesn't represent any kind of sea change for the Read more...
