UPDATE – Facebook has pulled the group! Good going everyone passing this around and making some noise.
The headline says it all: there is a Facebook group in existence that is calling directly for the killing of President Obama.
Not only does it exist, but it has a growing membership, and an active wall with users posting a variety of statements that are both racist and treasonous.
Is this a joke? The “About” text feels almost sarcastic: “We are going to kill Obama. Ten of us will surround the capital, armed with sniper rifles. Mr. Hope And Change just made his last speech.” What is your take?
Joke aside, the people in the group hardly seem to be kidding. From the wall, unedited in any way:
Facebook, remove this group, before the Secret Service picks it up, and subpoenas you for records. Shame on all the bigots and virulent violent vicious murderous ignoramuses in this group.
