The social networking site Facebook on Monday pulled a third-party application that allows users to create polls after a site member built a poll asking if President Obama should be killed.What he really means is these people reported it, more below:
The U.S. Secret Service, the agency assigned to protect the president, has launched an investigation, agency spokesman James Mackin said.
"As is usually the case, our vigilant users reported it to us first," Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt told CNN.
"The USSS [Secret Service] sent us an e-mail late this morning PDT asking us to take it down. At that point, it had already been removed, and we let them know."Ok, I can understand that, fair play to the Secret Service. However, as always, my left leaning brain brings in the question of “equality” and wonders if the SAME level of interest and investigation was also applied to the American Jews who were recorded issuing threats to Obama whilst on holiday in Israel. See here:
In this case, Schnitt said, the user made the poll asking whether Obama should be killed available to the general public.
The possible responses to the poll were "yes," "maybe," "if he cuts my health care" and "no."
A new video posted on the Internet featuring inebriated American Jewish youth in a Jerusalem bar spouting hate-filled sentimentsTo which I said:(Time to notify the Secret Service and CIA, he's just threatened the POTUS)
"He's a f**khead... I don't know politics, but he's a s**thead! Anyone who wants to take away my gun rights is an a***ole. He's an a***ole and deserves to get shot," declares a bandana-wearing youngster.
The camera shifts to his friend, who denounces Obama, frat-boy style: "Obama shouldn't pressure Israel for shit. Netanyahu told him to f**k himself and that's how we do it here in Israel baby, (applause) yah!"So, when they returned to their homes in America were they questioned? Where they investigated? Video below to refresh the Secret Service’s memory:
Another member of the group stands up and declares, "I worked for the Obama campaign, but honestly, you f**kin' with Israel, you mother, STOP IT!" He stands and points his finger at the camera lens.
"White power, f**k the ni***rs!" declares the bandana-clad drunken youth as a final word from the group, grabbing the microphone to make his point.
