PA newspaper runs ad calling for assassination of Barack Obama

More Post-Racial America

Yes, the latest attack on Obama becomes personal with an ad that calls for his assassination.

As reported by Francis L. Holland, Michael Morrill and Philadelphia Enquirer The Warren Pennsylvania Times-Observer ( published an ad on Thursday calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama.

Francis L. Holland has a link to the AD. The Warren, Pennsylvania Times-Observer has apologized, saying that the person who approved the ad "didn't recognize the significance of the names" and that they have "notified the authorities." Seriously? Garfield and McKinley...sure. But Lincoln and Kennedy? MORE HERE

Get this, as reported by the Reuters, the paper says it mistakenly ran ad urging Obama killing.

AAPP: It seems that the newspapers in the United States are comfortable with these attacks. Now the question is when will the Secret Service and the Justice Department say, enough is enough?

Update on investigation into Obama classified

A representative of the U.S. Secret Service was in Warren Friday, accompanied by a Warren City police officer to investigate the circumstances surrounding the placement of a classified ad in the Times Observer on Thursday. Get this, Secret Service representatives, who interviewed the ad taker and the publisher, and indicated that they would also talk to the person who placed the ad, requested that the paper not publicly reveal the name of that person because it would hamper their investigation.

AAPP says: Why not publicly reveal the name of that person? Shouldn't the people of that city, state and country need to know the person who would like to do harm to elected officials? If it where a black man they would have released that fact in a heart beat.

Note: There have been multiple assassination attempts on Presidents of the United States; there have been 90 known attempts to kill sitting and former Presidents as well as Presidents-elect. Four attempts on sitting Presidents have succeeded: Abraham Lincoln (the 16th President), James A. Garfield (the 20th President), William McKinley (the 25th President) and John F. Kennedy (the 35th President). Two other Presidents were injured in attempted assassinations: then former President Theodore Roosevelt and then sitting President Ronald Reagan. Source


  1. I'm glad you have a post-"racial" blog, because the adjective "racial" means "of or having to do with race" and "race", as we have seen, does not exist as a matter of biological fact and never did. It was simply a concept invented by white supremacists to create a color-based hierarchy in which whites were at the top of the invented biological pyramid, which they used as reason to put themselves at the top of the economic, social and political pyramids of society. These pyramids are man made and so is the biological concept of "race", except that while the socio-economic and political pyramids are obvious, the "race" pyramid that purportedly justified the others was always a figment of human imagination.

    What DOES exist in reality are skin color and color-aroused politics, economics and social systems in society, as well as color-aroused ideation, emotions, and behavior in individuals, which, when extreme enough, constitute a psychiatric disorder "Extreme Color Aroused Disorder" in individuals.

    I think your blog is "post-racial" in the sense that it recognizes that "race" doesn't exist as a matter or biological fact, and then your blog delves into what obviously DOES exist, which is color aroused politics, social stratification, economics and individuals' color aroused ideation, emotion and behavior.

  2. As for assassination, let's remember that Ronald Reagan was shot while he was president and let's insist that every threat against the life of our president be zealously investigated and prosecuted.

    Conspiring to kill a president is a capital crime, punishable by death or life imprisonment, and that makes it clear that in our society, the Secret Service and the courts should take all potential threats against the life of the President very seriously.
