    Secret Service: Man wrote ‘KKK forever’ and threatened to shoot Obamas

    A West Virginia man was being held in jail on Monday after he threatened the life of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama in a letter filled with racial slurs.
    According to The Associated Press, an affidavit from a Secret Service agent said that Kirker had written to someone named John in March that he planned to kill the president. Investigators were able to determine that both letters were written by the same person.


    Kirker had asked John to travel with him to Washington, D.C., and said that he could obtain armor-piercing ammunition, according to federal court records. Special Agent Ken Skaggs confirmed that the Secret Service had visited Kirker’s home in June 2012 to investigate threats in a third letter.
    Skaggs noted that one letter asked the president visit McMechen “so that the author can have ‘a shot’ at him,” adding that “if the first lady comes along, she will be killed also.” That letter also included racial slurs.

    Racism is alive and well in this country. Its pathetic that people would want to kill someone based on the color of their skin. Ignorance at its finest.

    I'm not a huge Obama fan, but this is awful. People are so ignorant and set in their ways.

    I've seen some of the signs that get held up along their motorcade that never make the news. Some of them are pretty vile but that is their right to do so.

    Why should I care? He's one guy, and now he's one guy in jail. Just because we have racist people doesn't make us a racist country.

    At least racism and stupidity usually go hand in hand which makes it easy to catch idiots like this.

    I certainly hope nobody shoots Obama.

    I don't like his power grabs. They are a DANGEROUS precedent!

    But smiley Joe would be infinitely worse!

    I suspect Obama keeps Biden around as life insurance.

    Obama looks GOOD by comparison.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    I cared enough to see how you'd respond. You took the time to post something like this, I wanted to see where you were going with it. You didn't stretch it to call us a racist country. For that I applaud you.

    I still don't care that some 80 IQ KKK sympathizer/member decided to land himself in jail. Stupid people do stupid things, what else is new.

    I'd take it a step further and say that racism is primarily driven by stupidity.
