Black Republican Calls For Obama Lynching, Gets Secret Service Visit

A Black Republican running for state assembly in Florida didn’t do much to help his campaign after declaring that President Barack Obama should be lynched. Joshua Black received a visit from Secret Service officials this week after retweeting a comment that Obama should be executed. The comment said, “I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high.” Black wrote back, “Agreed,” in response. The following day, Black confirmed that Secret Service officials visited his house.

Despite outrage over his stance on Obama, Black made “no apologies” in a lengthy Facebook post. The politician declared that Obama showed no compassion for life himself after allegedly plotting to have Eric Snowden and Bradley Manning executed for treason. “If ordinary Americans should be executed for treason, so should he,” he wrote. “Don’t stop at impeachment. Remove him. Try him before a jury … and upon his sure convictions, execute him. Thus has he done, thus it should be done to him.

Although Black denied ever threatening the President, he said there was nothing wrong his own views. “I believe that if you are a murderer, you should face the death penalty. I believe that if you are a traitor to the United States and causes [sic] the deaths of other Americans, you should face the death penalty,” he said. “I’m saying the president should face the same thing George Zimmerman had to face when he killed somebody else’s teenager. He had to face a trial where people had to determine if he was guilty or not guilty of murder, and he had to face the consequences.”

However, other Republicans have not backed him up on these accusations and want him to withdraw from the race. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said that Black’s lynching comments were “outrageous.” Susan Hepworth, the communications director for the Florida Republican Party, referred to the statements as “deplorable” and “despicable.”

    I think that Black owes the President an apology and that he should step down.

    WHAT IS TALKING ABOUT

  • glogrrl

    “….if you cause the death of other Americans, you should face the death penalty….”

    Well, then, he’d better sanction the immediate deaths of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, big time.

      I was just about to post the same comment. You’re right on. He’s brainwashed so much that he can’t think for himself.

        Uncle Tom to the heart. Whatever he’s pursuing, he’s reached as far as he’s going to reach. Glad the Secret Service paid him a visit. He’s not to be trusted. A true Judas.

    This man is a disgrace and needs to be taught a lesson by the Secret Service for threatening our President. Though he appears to be a typical hateful Republican, he should be ashamed of himself. People like him make me sad to call him an American. Shame Shame Shame

    Joshua Black should be IMPEACHED (lose his job) IMMDEIATELY!! Totally outrageous how DARE he threaten President Obama, Lynching Black is taking the easy way out, yes he should be indicted, convicted and thrown in the general population (no protect), it amazes me how the REPUBLICANS choose to have selective memory, this Hotmess Country was handed to President Obama to FIX (the Bushes put the Country in a Hotmess), and the Republicans has fought him every step of the way they don’t want to see him succeed, but Mr. Black tried to get the White people on his side with this comment how stupid do he think they are, they may be thinking what he expressed but they are not classified as DUMBASS’S TO VERBALIZE IT. WHAT A IDIOT!!! Can he say BYE to his career in politics.

    Dumb ass should’ve got a jail visit

    The President of the United States was elected to office twice. He did not take over the government. When his term is over he will return to being a private citizen, as all presidents from G. Washington on have done. If the President is guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors” he can be impeached. If he is removed from office, Biden becomes president. Biden can then run again in the next election to remain president. I just thought I’d remind some people, who will probably never read this anyway, how our government (luckily) actually works, as far as I know it. Thank God we don’t live in a real dictatorship. Try living in N. Korea and calling the leader all the things people call President Obama. Or, try Syria. That is a bastion of freedom and tolerance–not!

  • Jacalyn

    I don’t believe that a black person is talking about lynching and for the president something is wrong with this guy to want his own color to be killed. Lynching isn’t right for no black person to ever go through in life and for him to say that about our president I would have expected that they locked up this man for that statement that is a threat to the president and who would want this person running and holding an office expecting anything against his own color. I find that a threat to the president and he should step down and not be part of any government office. KKK days are over in this country when it comes to killing blacks Black people need to stand strong against any harm to our race I love my president Obama

    • Luis Alfredo Martinez

      Haven’t you notice that all of these African-American Republicans endorse the Tea Party mentality, it is a way for them now to try to cash in on the Koch millions, these people will sell their own mothers in order to get a piece of the pie.

      • Neil Gilfillan

        Yes, that’s correct. They believe that there’s opportunity in filling the void of black candidates in the T party. They couldn’t care less about what they’re saying so long as the T’s vote for them in an effort to disprove racism. It’s cynical to the max and throws the rest of their community under the bus.

  • Nate

    This man is lower then a dead roach under the heel of my shoe! His ancestors those who were slaves who might have been lynched themselves back in the old days must be turning over in their graves!

  • Jwrtr68

    When did the President declare a death sentence for either one of those individuals?! Any black person in America who believes that using the term lynching as an appropriate designation of punishment for a black politician is truly lost on all levels. This is so bad that I know Republicans are distancing themselves from this guy faster than they are from Chris Christie right now. Why would anyone be surprised that he didn’t apologize after the Secret Service visit?! He is that dense and that is the bottom line.

  • Pacificblue55

    What a relief for the teafuglicans! Now they would say we give a chance to a token candidate and he voluntarily withdraws.

  • Smooth

    Negro, please!

  • Jose Segarra

    We Neoricans who grew up in New York with our Black brothers and sisters reserve the “N” word for people such as Mr Black. We use this word to describe a certain type of person that well befits this fool!

  • TZX1

    Another useful tool for the Christian, Conservative right wing Republican ,White Supremest Boot licking, Uncle Tom House Negro.
    These Negroes are always highlighted,promoted. and pushed out by the right as shining examples of who we as Black people should emulate to make their work on totally disenfranchising minorities easier for them .Thru out history, these self hating Blacks have been the most lethal for the Black community, poor people, women, and other minorities

  • Ceri Abraham

    What an idiot… He is a token Republican.They like to have couple blacks people in their party for show. He doesn’t realize that in some areas he would be lynched if they could just because of the color of his skin before he could say that he is republican

  • Aaron Robinson
