A rabid Tea Party wannabe politician in California called for the assassination of President Obama and his “monkey children” in a recent Facebook rant – and then defended his right to do so Monday.
Jules Manson, who failed miserably in his 2011 bid for a City Council seat in Carson, Calif., urged the sickening reprisal, saying Obama’s support of a revised military authorization bill last week was an act of “treason” that “eroded” constitutional protections.
“It must be countered with assassinations onto them and their children,” he wrote in the original posting that has since been scrubbed from his Facebook profile.
“Assassinate the f—-n (N-word) and his monkey cWannhildren,” he prodded, according to a screen grab obtained by YourBlackWorld.com.
An angry backlash quickly ensued, and Manson, 48, toned down the vile rhetoric Monday while defending his right to spew hate.
“Once you have taken the position that anyone should be imprisoned for careless emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance, you deserve what your government has become,” he wrote in the new Facebook post.
“All I can really say is to be careful what you wish for because setting such a precedence can come back to bite you,” he warned.
“I have felt deeply regretful and apologized for my past mistakes. Can you do the same?” he asked his followers.
No one answered a telephone number listed for Manson’s residence in a Carson trailer park Monday.
An enthusiastic supporter of Tea Party pioneer Ron Paul, Manson described himself as a mechanical engineer bent on fiscal conservatism when he announced his city council candidacy earlier this year.
Rising taxes and lease rates at his mobile home park motivated his run, he said.
He received just 550 votes, less than 4%, according to local newspaper Random Lengths.
Manson, who changed his first name from Julio, included a photo of Obama dressed as Hitler in a rambling February blog posting announcing his run and claiming support of racial equality.
“As soon as we shed our ideological labels, conditioned beliefs, and see the humanity beyond our pigments we find that in full frontal view of the naked truth we are all united in the same mission of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he wrote.
