Title click to read article on LOUISVILLE COURIER-JOURNAL website. (Apparently this guy wrote the poem in 2007. The poem was posted on a neo-Nazi website.)
From the article:
“This is a threat by one individual against another because he is the president and because he is black,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Philip Chance.
Whalin said after Friday’s hearing that he will decide next week whether there is a probable cause that Spencer, 27, committed a crime. Threatening to kill the president is a felony punishable by a maximum five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
From the article:
In 1969, the court reversed the conviction of a young African-American man who said at an anti-draft rally that if “they ever make me carry a rifle, the first man I want to get in my sights is LBJ,” referring to President Lyndon Johnson.
* Remember the DVD 'DEATH OF A PRESIDENT'?
The following is from AMAZON.COM, where the DVD is for sale:
Winner of the International Critics' Award at the Toronto Film Festival, DEATH OF A PRESIDENT is conceived as a fictional TV documentary broadcast in 2008, reflecting on a monstrous and cataclysmic event: the assassination of President George W. Bush on October 19th, 2007. The "documentary" artfully combines archival footage and carefully composed interviews presented in a respectful and dignified manner. The film doesn't advocate violence; rather, it shows its pernicious effects. It is exciting and questioning, and it offers viewers a riveting story -- creating a provocative political thriller that reveals larger truths.
* This DVD and the portrayal of the assassination of a sitting President was protected under free speech. ORF in no way agrees with anything a neo-Nazi scum bucket says, but ORF believes free speech should be protected. The neo-Nazi is an obvious racist. ORF asks what's the difference between the DVD and the scum-bucket's poem? The lawyers will explain that riveting question.
