Paul Smith, Tea Party Rally Attendee & Elected Official, Held Sign Depicting Obama's Head On A Spike


VIDEO here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/09/paul-smith-tea-party-sterling-heights-michigan_n_1760160.html



After carrying signs suggesting President Barack Obama's decapitation and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm's hanging at a Tea Party rally three years ago, Sterling Heights, Mich. Councilman Paul Smith has been asked by his colleagues to resign his post.

A video from a 2009 Tea Party rally in Troy shows Smith holding graphic signs condemning Obama, Granholm and Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi before his 2011 election to Council.

The least offensive text reads, "she turned Michigan into Detroit," referring to the former governor, with other slogans reading “Extreme left b*tch,” on the Pelosi sign, and "He changed America into Uganda” on the sign with Obama.

In the YouTube video, shown below, Smith tells the cameraman: "We've let a Communist in the White House. He’s not just a Socialist, he’s an out-and-out Communist. He’s taken over the auto industry, he’s taken over the banks."

On Wednesday, Sterling Heights' City Council voted 6-1 for Smith's resignation, according to the Detroit News, with Smith himself being the only holdout. Mayor Pro Tem Michael Taylor told the paper, "It's obvious we're dealing with someone who is completely irrational."

1. 2009? Why did it take so long? -Warning Graphic Images-

Did the video just surface or was this known in 2009?

There's no way this nutjob should hold public office:





Isn't it illegal to call for violence against government officials? That's exactly what he did with these gross signs. What a sick fuck!

2. People elect them.

 

That's the most troubling and inexplicable thing. These people are winning elections, not just locally but nationally. We should be happy Romney is the republican nominee because a Santorum would be winning. Whenever they run a crazy guy they win. We are a fucked up, idiotic country.
