Joshua Black Intimated by Federal Goons for Exercising Free Speech

Thumbs down to my local newspaper's "Thumbs up, thumbs down" section today for thumbing down the subject of this week's Two Minutes Hate, the protagonist of these stories — Florida State House Candidate Joshua Black Says Obama Should Be Hanged For War Crimes and Secret Service Visits Black GOP Candidate Joshua Black Who Called for Obama’s Execution.

Stupid me, I expected a newspaper might instead defend free speech and condemn the sending of the Secret Service to intimidate a citizen for exercising that right. Mr. Black:
    To everyone who was offended that I said that the POTUS should be hanged for treason, this is the man who droned Al-Awaki on “suspicion of terrorism"--not proof--and later killed his 15-year-old son for nothing more than being his son.

    This is also the man who sought to have Bradley Manning and Eric Snowden executed for treason when they didn't kill anyone, nor does the US government pretend to believe that they cost any spies their lives.

    This would be exactly what the President has done to others, and, as Jesus said, “the measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again." I make no apologies for saying that the President is not above the People. If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he.

    So, don't stop at impeachment. Remove him. Try him before a jury (the very right that he arbitrarily denied to al-Awaki and his 15-year-old son), and, upon his sure convictions, execute him. Thus has he done, thus it should be done to him.
Amen. How is this even controversial? Noam Chomsky rightly said, "If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged."

This sort of behavior from the Secret Service is not new. I approve of his clarification, that he is calling for due process to have President Obama hanged. With that in mind, I am not going to debate the legal merits of his statement. You never know what would really happen at a trial.
