Threats against presidents and candidates

Postby leftyg » August 11th, 2016, 10:49 am

I am sure everybody has heard what the walking gaffe machine, Donald Trump, said about Hillary Clinton http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Don ... ORM=VRDGAR The Secret Service has talked to his staff; he, of course, denies it even though the implication seems clear. Around the conservative media they have been trying to defend the statement and say he meant using the the arguments of the second amendment to defend in court. I found this comment on WHK's Facebook page on their August 6, 2016 comment about Obama giving Iran 400 million for hostages. In Glen McCoy's photo, President Obama has big ears. Below it a poster writes "Where is John Wilks Booth when you need him?" I concealed the name. https://www.facebook.com/am1420theanswer You can find it at the website. The post was made on August 6 at 2:53 PM and it is still up five days later. I think this is a violation of law, but it demonstrates what the poster thinks should happen to our president and probably what a lot of far right wingers are thinking. These people do not need to be encouraged.

I agree with you on this, of course. Trump's meaning was clear, he knows he was caught saying something indefensible but, being the little boy he is, he can't admit that he made a mistake.

However, I'm not sure what you described at the end of your post is actually a violation of law. I'm certainly no lawyer, but saying you wish someone would be assassinated might well be legally distinct from actually threatening it. I agree with your sentiment, though, naturally; any site where such a thing is posted has a moral and ethical obligation to take it down, if not a legal one.
