Tom Francois is not a big fan of President Obama’s. His Twitter feed features a photochop of cops perp-walking the Commander-in-Chief out of the White House. The Twitter description predicts that “One day Obama will be dragged kicking+screaming Allah Akbar like a little bitch for Treason, while his Sasquatch wife pounds on the agents screaming racism!” A typical Tweet [as above]: “I am a Catholic, believe in God, but I SWEAR reincarnation is possible, err PROBABLE as Hitler has been re-born and is in our White House!” According to examiner.com [link auto-plays all kinds of crap], the Secret Service paid a little visit to Mr. Francois . . .
“One Agent asked Tom if he has any intentions of ‘whacking’ the President.” To which Tom replied- ‘Of course not. I wish him no harm. I disagree with his policies and actions and I make no bones about it. It’s my First Amendment Right and I intend to exercise it.'”
According to this account, the Secret Service called Francis’ Second Amendment-protected right to keep and bear arms into question as well . . .
When they left Tom’s house, one Secret Service Agent ‘advised’- “Keep in mind, if you step over the line, we’ll come back for your guns.”
Another article in the examiner adds this tidbit:
They had run a background check and discovered that Tom legally owned two guns- and they asked to see them. Tom showed them his firearms. They asked, “Are they loaded?” Tom replied in the affirmative. “What good are guns if they aren’t loaded?”
The bolding of the text of the first quote indicates the reporters’s perspective on the incident, for which there’s no independent verification. Nor did Mr. Francois mention any particular post that may have caught the President’s bodyguards’ collective eye.
Suffice it to say, anti-Obama bloggers, YouTubers and Twitterers should keep in mind the 21st century rule: if you don’t get a picture of it, it didn’t happen.
