Watch What Happens When A Woman Tells Rep. Bridenstine Obama Should Be Executed (VIDEO)

Watch What Happens When A Woman Tells Rep. Bridenstine Obama Should Be Executed

When a woman told Representative Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) she thought President Obama should be executed, he reacted by looking for common ground.

Last week, somebody told Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) that she thinks President Obama should be “executed as an enemy combatant.” He reacted by finding common, anti-Obama ground with her.

At a Tea Party event last week in Tulsa, a questioner said the following to Bridenstine.

Obama, he’s not president, as far as I’m concerned. He should be executed as an enemy combatant. …The Muslims that he is shipping into our country through pilots and commercial jets… This guy is a criminal and nobody’s stopping him. And the other thing is… Congress doing nothing that legally allows this moron to make decisions. He has no authority, none!

Right Wing Watch advises that the “shipping Muslims into the country” claim is part of a bizarre right-wing conspiracy theory.

Representative Bridenstine failed to react to the woman’s words.

I don’t know about you but if somebody told me that President Obama should be “executed as an enemy combatant,” I’d think seriously about reporting them to the Secret Service. Even without the “Muslim shipping” accusation.

But not Bridenstine. He listened respectfully as others at the gathering chuckled. Finally, Bridenstine replied:

Look, everybody knows the lawlessness of this president. He picks and chooses which laws he’s going to enforce or not enforce. He does it by decree. …When he can’t create a law through Congress, then he gives us the …executive order. …When he can’t even get that done, then he uses foreign bodies. He uses the United Nations to try to change the laws in the United States.

Bridenstine has a history of extreme rhetoric against President Obama.

Last summer, Bridenstine demanded an apology from President Obama for funding climate change research. In the fall, when he predicted the Tea Party would be heroes for shutting down the government to defund ObamaCare, he also said, “Look, we’re willing to reluctantly fund all of the rest of the government; all we’re asking for is this one item.”

So it’s no big surprise that someone should feel so free to speak so hostilely to him about our president. It is disappointing, however, that a U.S. Congressman, no matter how much he hates Obama, would not immediately speak out against and condemn talk of executing him.

By listening respectfully to that kind of talk, Bridenstine gave it undeserved credibility. Even worse, he helped foster a climate for more.

Watch him not respond for yourself here.

Remember when McCain corrected the older woman at a rally that called Obama a Muslim? He could have used it like McCain did and correct her outrageous and dangerous comments. Alas SSDD.

Quoting Billiejeens:

 uh huh

(pats head)

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

I was talking about the woman. What she said was outrageous. 

Him trying to pussy foot around it is comical. 

If they say such things then they should be judged accordingly. 

Quoting Billiejeens:

 Do you read your own posts?   Probably not.

Let us diagram your sentence.

Her:    Obama should be executed.... ( okay that is fairly clear - though the parameters of how and when this would be accomplished are not stringently set.  She is clearly not a fan of Obama.

Him: He is a Republican - by definition he is not going to be a fan.

Here is your sentence - Finding Common ground. -

So, anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of English would see that the act of "finding common ground"   means looking for - so clearly while not being a fan of our very fine President, he didn't agree with executing him - because as you indicated - he had to "find" common ground.

Excellent (accidental) destruction of your own position. 

 

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

No. I make them look bad? Responsibility for one's actions? They do it all themselves. They should own it.

Quoting Billiejeens:

After he leaves the white house if he is charged with crimes then he should be tried and held accountable for any convictions, as any other citizen would be.

(but that's not your real concern - your concern is making the Republican look bad yes?)

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

What are your thoughts on what she said?

Quoting Billiejeens:

 good

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

"somebody told Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) that she thinks President Obama should be “executed as an enemy combatant.” He reacted by finding common, anti-Obama ground with her."

The most dangerous and outrageous mention in the entire thread is the name John McCain.

I disagree. I'd say saying that someone should be executed is much worse.

It is more outrageous to mention the name of someone the Republican party nominated as being worthy to serve the country as president, than it is to suggest that a serving president be killed?

Ok, swiftly moving on...

Yeah, I thought of McCain too.  At least he had balls and a bit of integrity.   Pity about his taste in running mates.

Bridenstine is the one who's crazy in my opinion.. I did not vote for Obama but much of this fear mongering is way more scary than our President is...

 When has Obama and his bots ever taken responsiblity? Nope. Blame game constantly. I don't think he should be executed./
