Jules Manson, Failed Tea Party Candidate, Calls For Assassination Of Obama, First Daughters

Source: The Huffington Post

Jules Manson, a failed Tea Party candidate for local office in California, recently called for the assassination of President Obama and his daughters in a racial epithet-ridden Facebook screed.

The post, originally about his opposition to the recent passage of the controversial National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a measure allowing the indefinite detention of suspected foreign terrorists, referred to the president as a “monkey.” Then it got much worse.

“Assassinate the f—– n—– and his monkey children,” Manson commented on his own post, according to a screen shot uploaded by Facebook group “Americans Against the Tea Party” and relayed by Your Black Politics blog.

The post has since been scrubbed from his Facebook profile, replaced with an explanation that the comments were “careless, emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance.”

Manson, an avid Ron Paul supporter and libertarian, also writes that he has since been visited by the Secret Service, with whom he says he cooperated fully as he “was hiding nothing.”

    Are you serious? As much as I want this president to be reelected, I dont want him to contnue living with this kind of threat over his life. No other person has had to deal with what he has. It comes from the right wing, the christian evangelicals and also the African Americans. It is unbelievable,

    Evil fucking scum that’s what all racists are. I can’t wait until they’re rotting in hell.  I’m of the belief that black people can’t be racist because we’re reacting to hate and oppression these weaklings are coming at us with.

    Lonnie Rashid Lynn raps about killing George Bush and he is invited to the white house. There are no news stories on this. There is a game available even now called “Kill George Bush”; Yet an insignificant man who lives in a trailer park makes a death threat against Obama on Facebook (note that Obama receives 30 death threats a day, according to a story in the Telegraph) and is all over the news. Why? A weak and desperate effort to link the Tea Party to racism. The press has jumped on this story about this insignificant man and his racist posts and always mention his support of the tea party, as if that is “proof” that the tea party in general is racist. Not sure if that is what you are going for here, but if you are trying to make the leap that the rantings of a weirdo makes the tea party people racist, the evidence is weak, at best. On Facebook, by the way, he says he is a democrat. This Jules Manson person turns out to be an atheist or at least affiliates with them. Jules was removed from his association with SupportAtheism.com because of his racist rants. “..he does not identify as a Tea Party member, and in fact spoke derisively of them.” “but unless he has changed in the last few months- the attempt to paint him as a Tea Party enthusiast is dishonest and short sighted.” So, even though there is proof that he is NOT a tea party person, you insist on putting the Tea Party in the HEADLINE of this story. Is it ideology? Or laziness? As usual, no signs, no proof of real Tea Party People being racist. On the other hand, you can do a google search of “occupy wall street anti semitic” and you get actual videos of real live people spewing hatred. I am sure there are anti semitic and racist tea partiers, but I still cannot find any videos online. I find videos ACCUSING them of being racist, but none actually proving it.
