via Tampa Bay Times

In keeping with the hallowed conservative tradition of saying incredibly lame and stupid things on Martin Luther King Day (really, why should MLK Day be any different from any other day?), Joshua Black a candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, took the opportunity Monday to go on the Twitters® and call for the hanging of Barack Hussein Obama for treason and stuff:

Quote:
As Americans honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, a Republican candidate for Florida House District 68 said President Barack Obama should be hanged for war crimes.

“I’m past impeachment,” Joshua Black wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to arrest and hang him high.”


As you see, Black is talking about a proper judicial procedure, not lynching, and he is a black person himself, so it was not really a "threat," it was a "call to action," and there is nothing offensive here, so move along you race-based bigots.

Just to clarify, Joshua Black thinks that Barack Obama should get exactly the punishment for treason that was meted out in the olden days: A trial by the Senate and a jury, and then hanging, just like they did to Benedict Arnold.

It’s really quite impressive when a Constitutional Conservative advocates double jeopardy and thinks that Benedict Arnold was executed, when in fact Arnold died in London in 1801 from gout.

For his part, Black did issue this clarification and apology today:

Quote:
Well, I need to make this clarification:

I was wrong about Benedict Arnold. I apologize for the confusion.

Isn't hanging a little archaic when Stand Your Ground™ is proven so effective in Flor-i-duh?

Not to mention that his reason for the treason charge is ridiculous: Why should your original citizenship entitle you to special rights when you go join the army of our enemy? American citizens joined the Nazis or the Japanese armed forces during WW II. Should they have been exempt from killing during a military operation?

THEY were the traitors, not the CINC or his subordinates when they did their duty to win by killing the enemy.

Mr. Black is obviously confused by the nonsense touted by anti-Obama propagandists. OTOH, that might make him an ideal Representative of his constituency!

T-Baggers are pathological in their hatred of Obama and that is truly alarming.
