Sabo warns anyone with political opinion could be targeted by feds
Enigmatic anti-Obama artist Sabo received a visit from the Secret Service this week in response to tweets in which he joked about Lee Harvey Oswald returning as a zombie.
Although the tweets were sent out a month ago, two Secret Service agents showed up at Sabo’s home on Wednesday to check if the artist represented a violent threat to President Barack Obama.
In a hilarious exchange, Sabo spoke to the agents while he was working on a toilet seat that features Obama’s face on the lid.
“Did you send out the tweets about bringing back Lee Harvey Oswald as a zombie,” asks one of the agents.
“How likely is that gonna happen?” responds Sabo.
In another tweet, Sabo poked fun at actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who earlier this month received criticism for her fawning adulation of Obama during a Democratic Party fundraiser at her house in Santa Monica during which she told the president, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”
“You’ve really gotta think about some of this stuff you’re tweeting, it could be construed in many different ways,” says the agent.
“I realize we have a fuckhead in the White House and the Constitution no longer means shit, but as far as I’m concerned we still have a First Amendment,” responds the Sabo, before the agents suggest he was advocating violence.
“Unless I could bring Lee Harvey Oswald back as a zombie, then I could see there would be some violence, but until I get the CDC, a way to figure out to make that happen, it’s a dream,” states Sabo.
Sabo subsequently warned that anyone with anti-Obama opinions could also be targeted by the feds.
Sabo’s depiction of Obama as the Joker in some of his art serves as a reminder that others have been targeted by the feds simply for making fun of the President, such as the creators of a float in the July 4th annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Nebraska which portrayed Obama as a zombie, prompting an investigation by the Department of Justice.
Nurses in California plan walk outs and strikes to protest the lack of sufficient protection and protocols against Ebola in corporate hospitals.
“Nurses, who have been willing to stand by the patients whether it’s the flu, whether it’s Ebola, whether it’s cancer, now they’re being asked to put themselves in harm’s way unprotected, unguarded,” Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United in Oakland, told Reuters.
In addition to protests next month, nurses across the nation will stage bake sales to pay for hazmat suits not provided by corporate hospitals.
After two nurses were infected with Ebola in Dallas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta issued new guidelines and recommendations for dealing with Ebola, including the use of protective gear including full-body suits.
Advocates say recommendations should standardized and mandatory in all hospitals.
The National Nurses United and the California Nurses Association have sent a petition to Obama calling for a national standard in the treatment of Ebola patients.
“We want something where a virus cannot penetrate anywhere from head to toe in the nurse’s body,” said DeMoro.
Fox News is reporting that a Marine Corps father has been banned from his daughter’s school after he complained about her homework assignment on Islam. Kevin Wood said his daughter was told to write a three page essay about Islam’s five pillars, at La Plata High School in Maryland. He argued that students can’t study Christianity in school “but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”
When are we going to weed out the hypocrites in our government. This is One Nation Under God not a Nation Under Islam. People have been trying to remove God from our schools for decades. Now we have school boards that say it’s ok to teach Islam, and talk about Muhammad. A man who married a child at the age of six, and had sex with her when she was nine. That’s a good role model for our kids don’t you think. Our kids are not allowed to pray to God in school but they can write reports on Islam.
These hypocrites in our school system need to know they can’t have it both ways. If our kids are not allowed to talk about Jesus then teachers should not be allowed to talk about Muhammad. If The teaching of God is not allowed in our schools, then there is no way you should ever allow the teaching of Satan. The separation of Church and State applies to everyone in this country. God bless each and everyone of you… Semper Fi, Shep
