Facebook Poll Asks If Obama Should Be Killed

with 3 comments

Wait, what?

(CNN) — 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.

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.”

Schnitt said the application “was immediately suspended while the inappropriate content could be removed by the developer and until such time as the developer institutes better procedures to monitor their user-generated content.”

Great. Just great. But I’m sure the political and racial climate has nothing to do with this.

  1. The political climate certainly had something to do with it. I sincerely doubt that the “racial climate” was involved at all.

    • Are the quotations an effort to suggest that no racial climate exists? I find it naive to actually hold that belief.

      • Yes, the quotes were meant to denote that. This supposed “racial climate” is a phantasmagoria created by Liberals out of whole cloth. It is no more based in objective truth than the Conservatives’ mindless cries of “Socialist.”

        Yes, racism still exists, though far more among Blacks than Whites these days. It’s just not a case of a “climate” of it, if such is meant as a caution at least.
