Christian militia calls for Obama’s assassination on Facebook

The Christian American Patriots Militia is openly calling for the assassination of President Barack Obama on their Facebook page. The Christian militia calls Obama a “dictator,” and claims the “authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.

According to a report issued by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) dated Nov. 22, the U.S. Secret Service is aware that Everest Wilhelmsen, leader of the Christian American Patriots Militia, is calling for Obama’s assassination.

The Christian American Patriots Militia sent out a post to the more than 1400 members of their Facebook group declaring the militia now has the “authority” to assassinate President Barack Obama:

“We now have authority to shoot Obama, i.e., to kill him,” Wilhelmsen wrote on the group’s Facebook page.

The following is an excerpt from the disturbing post, dated Nov. 19:

“The authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution: He is levying war on the United States and aiding and comforting our foreign enemies – the 2nd Amendment gives us the right and duty (authority) to engage an enemy of the United States that does so with the design to reduce us under absolute Despotism. I would be very surprised, if Obama does not leave Washington DC today (Nov. 19th) … never to return, if he is not dead within the month.”

The group’s Facebook page claims Obama’s “rogues and thugs are in fact supplanting our Constitution with a communist Oligarchy of corrupt political and legal elites” and encourages “Christian American patriots” to “rise and fight vigorously to protect our nation and our posterity.”

The SPLC reports a spokesman for the Secret Service would not say if the Facebook post had prompted an investigation: “That’s not something we openly discuss,” the Secret Service spokesman said.

Yet one would hope a group of Christian extremists threatening to assassinate the President of the United States would merit close investigation by the Secret Service. After all, calling for the assassination of the President of the United States is a crime.

    “If you like your plan you can keep your plan” Bull___. POSIC didn’t say if it met standards. He said the above, followed by “Period”. Now I understand the term ” Lying N____R” This explains it all.

    No he’s better than Bush! Bush and his lackey’s are war criminals! War profiteering is a crime in of itself! having remote controlled Planes hit the WTC! blowing up the Pentagon with a Missile! Did you see the hole? No plane there! All to start a war for profit! Killing your own people to start a war with mass murder!? But the true Christians in this country Didn’t Call for their heads! Their only problem is Obama is 1/2 African! They think all people of color should be slaves! The Caucasians in our country are a Minority! If they were successful in their plan we would have an all out war against Caucasians in this country and the weak, feeble, and Old would be the first to go! So do you really think it’s a good Idea Gerald?

    You are a liar or misinformed. If your policy did not meet the new standards it had to go. But a lot of companies are using the anti Obama rhetoric to cancel policies on which they lose money because they have a convenient scapegoat. If that doesn’t fit your preconceived disposition to dislike the president then I’m sorry; but facts don’t change because you don’t believe them. Perhaps some research before you blame people because you were dog whistled into it.
