It might be wise for anyone living in this new, modern age to realize that their tweets and Facebook statuses don’t just slip out into the ether; they are data that’s stored somewhere, and there are always people doing searches for terms and keywords. If you are a racist, a birther, or our all-time favorite — a racist birther — you may want to think twice about spewing your hatred and ignorance all over the Internet and if you’re going to spew your racist hatred, breaking the law and making threats against the President of the United States should probably be where you draw the line.
Public Shaming published a set of screen shots to their Tumblr page called, “People, Who Will Soon Be Visited By the Secret Service, Would Like President Obama Assassinated Over the Government Shutdown.” It’s chock-full of angry tweets aimed at the president, all of them containing not just horrible racist language, but direct threats to the Obama. On the one hand it’s soul crushing to read so many tweets from so many young people just blasting out the most racist and hateful stuff imaginable. Then again, society owes a debt of gratitude to Public Shaming for exposing these people for who they are. Indeed, a good public shaming (and a few weeks behind bars for threatening the president’s life) is exactly what the doctor ordered for these “people.”
Here below are some of the er — lowlights. Read with caution as these morons pulled no punches.
