According to BrowardPalmBeach.com, “the Secret Service is aware of this incident and will conduct appropriate follow-up,” said spokesman Brian Leary.
In an exclusive interview, Pastor Jones said that he had been contacted by Secret Service twice and he never considered “race” when hanging a Black man from a noose:
“”We are not looking at him as a black man. He is not black; he is not white; he is the president of the United States,” he said. “And the noose, of course, was to represent the death of his presidency and political career. Not at all to represent his race… His race has absolutely nothing to do with it.”
Florida pastor Terry Jones, best known for his Islamophobic burning of Korans has now simulated the “lynching” of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.
In an explosive, vile, racist rant filled with propaganda and half-truths, Jones attacks Obama for being “Anti-American, anti-Christian,” and for “killing babies” in reference to reproductive rights. He speaks of the nation’s deficit, our continued involvement in Afghanistan and Obama’s alleged support of “radical Islam” — whatever that loaded, bigoted and factually inaccurate phrase is supposed to mean. Jones says that he is “hanging [Obama] high as a symbol of what America needs to do.”
