A Dearborn Heights man has been charged with making racist threats against President Obama and the Federal Communications Commission.

James Allen Myers, 37, a registered sex offender, told authorities he made the calls because he was angry about the "filthy sex and perversion" on television, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday.

Myers made the threats during a series of phone calls Dec. 9 and 10 to FCC and National Geographic Channel offices in Washington, the Secret Service said in the complaint.

"I'm gonna hang our. . .president from a tree outside the White House with a burning cross and a swastika on the lawn," the caller told National Geographic.

2. I'm sure there is an (r) after his name!!

I'm just not sure if it means racist or repugnican? Maybe, just maybe... the two words are interchangeable.

6. Very few exceptions to the "interchangeable" rule!

You may recall the fantastic behavior of Republican Mayor, Phil Giordano, Waterbury, Connecticut, who reamed not only a town hooker, but got her to bring her pre-teen daughter and her neice to his office and nailed them, as well.



Here's the sex-offender who made the racist murder threat to the President:

"filthy sex and perversion" on TV to be just a bit, well, bizarre???

Somebody needs to get back on his Thorazine.

10. I doubt he was "charged with making racist threats"

I suspect he was charged with making threats.

You don't get to threaten the President even if done in a color-blind way.
