On Targeting the President of the United States…

Look at this picture closely…

…It is not the picture of a president of any country in the world. It is no offensive political position, a threat to democracy or even your life. But simply put, its an image of a daughter who loves her father…

300px-Reagan_assassination_attempt_montageIn the 80’s I had a roommate who was a Marxist. On the day Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr. I came home and asked her if she’d heard that the President had been shot in Washington, D.C. and was rushed to the hospital. Her quick reaction caught me off guard. “Yes” she said, “and I hope he dies…”

Having allowed myself to swallow the tripe, I too had become a fully involved supporter/victim of the anti-god-marxist-liberation-blame everything on America-the Church-the rich-and government-type. I was nonetheless surprised by her cold heartedness despite her flawed rational of blaming Ronald Reagan for the deaths of homeless people in America. As if committing another grave evil could in any way cure another. “Geez, Louise”, I said, “It’s probably not right to wish for the death of the President, or, any man.”

Louise was unmoved…

Louise was poisoned by hate as well as fear and reflected well what Marxism forgets or fails to acknowledge in advancing its foul goals within the world. It denies that the dignity of all human persons derives solely from being created in the image of God.

And so it is with President Barack Obama… He was created, as his wife and children were as well, in the image of God. Period.

Yes, I deplore everything the President stands for on the issues surrounding abortion and the death of innocents in the womb of life, which proves the point concerning Marxist socialists and their loss of the sense of human origin and full meaning of human dignity; though they would tell you in a flash that human dignity is their calling card. Yes, our President proclaims himself a Christian, but the reality is that any Christian who has known the Person of their devotion must of spiritual necessity have come to know first the Creator’s Spirit. The Power of Love responsible for creating everything–seen and unseen. And it is from this Love that one learns the value of ones own self and neighbor, from conception to natural death, and why the commandment to not kill exists.

The truth is God exists. And the dignity due souls at every stage of their embryonic journey from God, through life, in returning to God must be respected. This is the reality for everyman who lives and breathes, for better or for worse… And each will be judged accordingly.

My point is, just because the political issues any President offers up and enacts may be truly offensive to us, and in the case of abortion truly death-dealing and offensive to God, does not give another man or woman the right to decide his fate through promoting his death via advertisement–or in any other manner for that matter.

This site condemns the person(s) responsible for the advert below and will be praying for the protection of the President, with the hope that law enforcement will quickly nab the person(s) responsible for this outrageous example of ignorance.

Louise was a Catholic, as it turns out. A woman who lost her faith and interior understanding of the sacredness of all human life…

And, I don’t want to go there again… Neither should any of us.

The story follows:

WARREN, Pa. —  A small-town newspaper is apologizing for running a classified advertisement calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama.

Warren Times Observer Publisher John Elchert says the ad appeared Thursday. It read, “May Obama follow in the steps of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy!” The four presidents were all assassinated.

Elchert tells The Associated Press that the newspaper’s advertising staff didn’t make the historical connection.

He says the northwestern Pennsylvania newspaper turned information over to police and that the Secret Service is investigating the person who placed the ad.

A note in Friday’s paper says the newspaper “apologizes for the oversight.”

  1. I would believe the advertising department when they said that they didn’t make that historical connection. We can affix the blame for that on the public education system in this country and the stupified history that is taught by them.
    As horrible as that statement is, for its wish of death upon any human being, I don’t think the language constitutes a call for assassination. It’s one thing to wish for evil, which is bad enough. It’s quite another to ask someone to bring about that evil. Perhaps I’m wrong, as I didn’t see the entire advertisement, but I saw no such direct request. Was such implied? Well, I’m no lawyer, but if someone is going to be charged for a capital crime such as soliciting murder, I think this advertisement, as represented in this blog entry, constitutes very flimsy grounds for such a charge.
    For the record, before Feds beat down my doors, I’ve no death wish for any human being – be that person the US President, or an unborn child in the womb. With all the talk about “assassination” and such, it’s bewildering that the calculated murders of 3500 babies daily doesn’t seem to amount to a blink of an eye.

    1. Hi Janet!

      I’m no lawyer either… And I’m not sure of the law or specifics on charges that could be brought, but here’s the relevant dictionary explanation:

      May
      – Past tense – Might

      –Used to express a desire or fervent wish: Long may he live!
      –Used to express contingency, purpose, or result in clauses introduced by that or so that: expressing ideas so that the average person may understand.

      Pretty much covers it.

      “Public education” was my first thought when I came across the article too… But really, what is the first thought when one hears the name “Lincoln” and more so, “Kennedy”(assassination). If ignorance truly is the reason editor’s missed this one, we really are in trouble!

      On: it’s bewildering that the calculated murders of 3500 babies daily doesn’t seem to amount to a blink of an eye.

      I sadly concur…

      Grace. Blessings. Peace to you and yours…
