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

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.

 Robots sorry.I call his team Bots

Quoting Pema_Jampa:

bots?

Quoting numbr1wmn:

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

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?

 good

 You want people to be held responsible for their actions except for Obama and his bots right? See your posts are REPUBLICANS don't take responsiblity but you are quiet when it's the other way around. Sad.  This country has a Leader who had robots to do his work and blame everybody for his problems and has YET taken responsiblity for ANYTHING he has done. Now a leader that if he doesn't get his way will use his executive powers. Yep Great!

Where did I say that everyone shouldn't take responsibility? Oh that right I didn't.

Statement From Congressman Bridenstine

Feb 5, 2014
Press Release

Congressman Bridenstine has made the following statement concerning comments made by audience members at a recent town hall event:

A public figure cannot control what people say in open meetings.  I obviously did not condone and I do not approve of grossly inappropriate language.  It is outrageous that irresponsible parties would attribute another person’s reckless remarks to me.

We okay now?

 I will say no.

Here come the bots--->

He didn't actually say that Obama shouldn't be executed, see he didn't say it, it's a trick, he didn't say it, he didn't say it, he was vague, he didn't say Obama shouldn't be executed, he didn't say, it

He didn't approve of the language, he didn't say he didn't approve of executing him, he didn't say it - it's code, he didn't say it. He might as well have just drawn a noose in the dirt, it's code

Dog whistle - Storm Front - Code - Chicago!

It does not appear that he addressed the "execution" part of her statement. NOW he wants to act like what she said was wrong-too late.

Guilt by omission.

Could have been handled so much better- but let him be the victim now.
