Internet hate threat against the President.

This disturbs me a lot. I ran into this on another off topic forum, about cars, and the subject was about "Forget about Obama?'

His post was succinct and to the point:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Someone for the love of god take this guy out!!!!!




Below his avatar was the slogan:

Locked and Loaded, ready for the rebellion.

His avatar is this (I copied it ino my album) :



~~~~~

He sure seems to like the AR 15, too. He posted this pic of his arsenal.



I think this is really scary, in total, but
am I over reacting?


Is this kind of a post worth reporting to the authorities, or should I just blow it off and forget it. Threats are probably a dime a dozen..

It was NOT made humorously either.


Nobody commented on it, and talk online, is cheap, but to me it sounded like a nut job mouthing off,

But it really upset me, and I wondered if the guy really has the means and wherewithal and desire to act, or is just being a fool and it doesn't mean anything.

If yes, who should be notified?

Advice, anyone?

As someone who disagrees with nearly everything on the President's agenda, I pray continually for his safety. I can think of nothing worse than if someone did as the quoted post demanded.

Oh man, the stinky would hit the fan did that happen.

It's a tough call, Jim. Maybe reporting it would be best. Could be they're swamped with that sort of thing though.

Hmmm. I am glad he is with you on your side of the world.
There is nothing wrong with being a collector, weather it be postage stamps or ak47's. But his state of mind is a worry.
Good Luck with your deliberations of what to do !!

Most of those photos are from a group of pics that have been around for a long time. I doubt they are his particular collection.

That gun collection is JUST that, a gun collection.

One of my neighbors has 2-3 times that collection, but he shoots at any & every competition.

That's probably a pic of Hattie's closet.

(Not that I'm insinuating any connection!!!)

I'd bet the Secret Service is already aware of the post. ECHELON or not.

Clearly a nut job, clearly a loud bark. I doubt much else.

That gun picture is a stock pic thats been around for a long time, its not his safe.

Probably just a loud nut, I wouldn't be surprised if the SS already knows about it.

While he's probably just some pencil-***** making noise, words have consequences. There'd be no downside to reporting him and a visit to his mother's basement by dark suited men in a black Suburban might just be what it takes to keep him from doing something stupid. I'd report it.

The picture came from a blog called the Suburban Prepper back in July of this year and has been cropped.

Believe me you do not want to be on the wrong side of these guys! I once had "an issue" with them and I lost that fight! Of course after they took care of whose bark was louder (Intra-agency BS I cannot get into ) they turned out to be a great bunch of guys! VERY HARDCORE though.
I would hate to have them coming through my windows at 3am!

As to the original post, I would not worry about it. If, in fact it is a credible threat believe me, the Secret Service (Call them the SS and get your teeth kicked in) is aware of it...
