Violent Calls For Lynching Obama At Anti-Immigration Rally

So much for those ridiculous claims that racism is dead in the United States.

Isn't this just lovely? So much for the ridiculous claims that racism is dead in the United States. Far from it: Overheard At Anti-Obama Rally: 'Hang Him! We've Got Rope':

Yesterday, a small group of right-wing demonstrators gathered in front of the White House at a rally scheduled to coincide with the visit of a number of sheriffs who were in Washington, D.C., to protest President Obama’s executive action on immigration.

One activist who was filming the rally spoke to several attendees who said they wanted to lynch Obama.

Among the remarks picked up by the cameraman:

“Hang the traitor!”

“Hang the lying Kenyan traitor!”

“We’ve got rope.”

“Plenty of trees in the front yard, wouldn’t be the first one hung on one of them trees.”

“Whatever happened to those good ol’ days?”

“Don’t snap his neck, you watch him choke to death.”

“He’s just biding his time until Satan takes him home to where he belongs.”

How many of them do you think claim to be good Christians? At least we can take some solace in the fact that almost no one showed up, despite the way the event was hyped by The National Review: Sheriffs Plan Massive Gathering in Washington to Oppose Executive Amnesty.

As Right Wing Watch also reported.... it was an utter failure: Anti-Immigrant Protests A Bust, Again.

Earlier this month, Rep. Michele Bachmann utterly failed to organize a Tea Party uprising against President Obama’s executive action on immigration, as what she hoped would be a massive Washington, D.C., rally against “amnesty” eventually became a press conference attended by a handful of activists holding anti-Obama signs.
