Source: Evan McMurry / Mediaite

Joshua Black, a GOP candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, called on Monday (also known as Martin Luther King Day) for President Barack Obama to be hanged for treason. On a Twitter feed already full of calls for Obama’s impeachment and accusations that he doesn’t care for military service members, Black quoted a previous tweeter, saying “I’m past impeachment. It’s time to arrest and hang him high,” and added, “agreed”:

      It shows how ignorant he is & I hope he looses what ever he tries to do.

    The republican party has the most dumb people in the world…

    Here is the blanket that society has thrown covering one’s thoughts again. He should be more than ashamed of himself. Why would a black man who is very much still suffering from the impact of racism even murmur the word “hang”. Hang! And you associated that with punishment deserved by the president? Our President! Where were you when Bush was in office? Where are you now in your own community, candidate Black? How ironic is it that you have a last name that you cannot even live up to. Impeach him, he’s a traitor, hang him! God, the very thought of those words and that agreement coming from your mouth sickens me. What is your punishment for wishing death on the President of the United States?

    JOSHUA BLACK, IS AN EDUCATED FOOL, HOW STUPID HE IS FOR EVEN SPEAKING OUT LOUD OR TWEETING SUCH IGNORANCE… YOU THINK YOUR PARTY ACCEPTS YOU … THINK AGAIN …YOU’RE BEING USED FOOL… THEY NEED YOU TO SAY THINGS LIKE THIS , DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK THEY’D STAND BEHIND YOU IF YOU RAN FOR PRESIDENT, IF THERE WAS NO PRESIDENT OBAMA… JUST LIKE THEY HATE HIS COLOR… THEY HATE YOURS ALSO DUMMY! IN MY OPINION THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE TO ALL CULTURES, AND EVEN MORESO FOR BLACKS,DON’T EVEN TRY RUNNING, BECAUSE THEY WILL BLOCK ANY AND ALL PROGRESS…ALL BUT THEIR OWN RACE AND AGENDA! IT’S ALWAYS BEEN AN UNSPOKEN ENTITLEMENT FOR WHITE MEN ONLY.
    Our nation was born in genocide when it embraced the doctrine that the original American, the Indian, was an inferior race. Even before there were large numbers of… Negroes on our shore, the scar of racial hatred had already disfigured colonial society. From the sixteenth century forward, blood flowed in battles over racial supremacy. We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. Our literature, our films, our drama, our folklore all exalt it. Our children are still taught to respect the violence which reduced a red-skinned people of an earlier culture into a few fragmented groups herded into impoverished reservations.” Dr. King wrote these words 51 years ago.

    NSA and homeland security should already be there to pick this clown up.

  • WC1969

    Mr. Black’s comments are totally ignorant and a disgrace. Why would anyone want to vote for someone so ignorant and disrespectful of the POTUS. No other President has ever been shown the disrespect that President Obama has received. Regardless of your personal views, there is a level of respect that is due.

    What is wrong with these people? I can’t believe the disrespect some black folk have for the President…

    From the first African who sold his tribesman into slavery until now. There has always been a black who thought if they sided with the enemy they would be spare and lifted up. Remember Herman Cain, a sell out, in the movie Life remember the prisoner they singled out to watch the rest of the prisoner and he somehow thought it made him exempt from the horrible treatment of the other prisoners. Wake up people they are using you to destroy your own tribe.

    IT’S A STINKING SHAME FOR A MAN LIKE MR. BLACK TO COME UP WITH SUCH REMARKS ON PRESIDENT OBAMA. I AM ALSO QUITE SURE THAT MR. BLACK LIKES NOT HIS OWN SUR NAME-black. HE’S ASKING FOR THE PRESIDENT TO BE HANG. I THINK HE’S THAT OLD TRUMPET SITTING ON THE SHELF FOREVERSINCE AND WANTS TO BE BLOWN TO BE HEARD. THERE IS NO LOGIC OR SENSE HE HAS MADE SO FAR I WILL SKIP THAT NAME HERE AFTER IT IS A WASTE OF MY CLASS AND QUALITY TIME. I GUESS MOST OF US FEEL THE SAME WAY TOO.

  • Patrick

    Ok- I am a staunch libertarian, and I am not a fan of President Obama’s track-record on policies in almost every area… BUT with that said, even I must concede & admit the obvious truth that this man went a little too far /overboard on his statement…. I’m all for freedom of speech & freedom to express your opinions, but calling for treason charges to be filed against the president , along with a death sentence if convicted…. That’s a pretty intense claim & statement to make, and shouldn’t be used lightly…. Especially when talking about a sitting president …. And coming from a man running for public office himself…
