Fired & reported to the Secret Service

No self-awareness. No decorum. No remorse. No sense.

I truly worry about my president.

Obama threat gets Turlock woman fired, reported to Secret Service
By Marijke Rowland

TURLOCK -- A Turlock woman who posted inflammatory comments on Facebook about President Barack Obama has been fired from her job and reported to the U.S. Secret Service. Turlock resident Denise Helms, 22, posted shortly after the president's re-election Tuesday on her Facebook page, "And another 4 years of the (n-----). Maybe he will get assassinated this term..!!"

- snip -

She told the Fox 40 reporter: "I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. The assassination part is kind of harsh. I'm not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don't think I'd care one bit."

- snip -

Helms graduated from Placer High School in 2008, according to her Facebook page, and has the Romney/Ryan 2012 page among her "likes." She is not listed as a registered voter in the state registry database.

Helms could not be reached for comment by The Bee. She told Fox 40 she wasn't aware she could be investigated by the Secret Service for her post.

"OK, but what did I do wrong? That's fine if they want to," she told the reporter. "But I don't understand what I did wrong."

"But I don't understand what I did wrong." OMG! You stupid person, you!

2. She's a stupid kid, as most are.

Well, not really, but I had to show a little compassion being librul and all. Most kids aren't that stupid. I'd hope the SS will give her a stern warning (and maybe scare her a bit with a short civics lesson) and maybe she'll process her thoughts first before splotching them on the intertubes.

8. The article says that she's not registered to vote!

She likes Romney/Ryan on her FB page, though.

5. "a lot of people apparently think I'm racist"

Helms has since deleted the post and posted again about the incident. It reads: "So apparently my post last night about Obama got onto Twitter and Fox 40 came and interviewed me cause apparently a lot of people in Sacramento think I'm crazy and racist. WOW is all I got to say!! I'm not racist and I'm not crazy. just simply stating my opinion.!!!"

10. And the kicker is that she doesn't think she's racist!

"Just stating opinion." So she's not racist, it's just her OPINION that's racist ...

Another one from the shallow end of the gene pool.

Guess she'll learn that elections have (unexpected) consequences.
