The Secret Service is following up on recent comments by right wing radio host Pete Santilli, who claimed to want to shoot former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the vagina and see President Obama tried and shot for treason.
“We are aware of Mr. Santilli’s comments and will take the appropriate follow up action,” Edwin M. Donovan, a Secret Service spokesperson, told TPM on Monday. “He certainly has a right to free speech, but the Secret Service has a right and an obligation to determine what a person’s intent is when making comments like this.”
But just when you thought it was about as bad as it could be… oh, that’s just the beginning for this wack-job.
‘Miss Hillary Clinton needs to be convicted, she needs to be tried, convicted and shot in the vagina,” he said. “I wanna pull the trigger. That ‘C U Next Tuesday’ has killed human beings that are in our ranks of our service. I want to remind you that in Benghazi, Miss Hillary ‘the fricken’ biggest vagina on the face of the planet’ told troops to stand down and to not go in and interfere with the operation that they set up because they’re moving arms; Barack Obama is moving drugs through the CIA out of Afghanistan and Barack Obama needs to be tried, convicted, and shot for crimes against the United States of America.”
Of course, he will state he is just ‘stating his opinion’ which is true, that he’s not suggesting that anybody DO it, that it be a judicial process (I’m not sure what part of the Fed Law covers “Execution by Shooting in Vagina” however). I suspect that he very carefully parsed his statements so that they could not be considered a “Call To Action”.
I’m just not sure how much lower an individual can sink, but it’s still early in the year, so I’m sure that yet further lows will be met.
