    The post that was reported to the FBI was "I want to bring a gun into the laughing skull and shoot everyone." That's enough right there.

    Here is what I've found reported that he said about assassinating the President, and I think you can judge for yourself what kind of dummy this guy is:

    The complaint said investigators found demeaning statements about homosexuals as well as claims of "White Power" on the Facebook page. "Another post made on the profile according to the complaint was "Negros in the White house. Think they own the country. Assignation the President!!!!!!! He needs to dye...his suit purples."

    The complaint said McIntosh was residing at the In-Town Suites on Buford Highway in Norcross when he posted the threat to the President last August. It read "I wanna kill the president of the united states."

    Gee, if that's his spelling, and not a spelling mistake on your part, perhaps the man simply wants to have a gay affair with Barry.

    Another reason why the sequester is a bad idea.

    Yep. Anyone who dares question the plans of the great wizard Obama is a racist, rich loving, bigot that wants to take away "opportunity" from all of the impoverished masses.
