Man Arrested For Attempted Obama Assassination Thinks President Is “Anti-Christ”

When reports of gunfire near the White House hit the wires last week, most news organizations worked off the assumption that the shots had nothing to do with the actual residents of the building.  But after seeing bullets actually hit the residence and investigating further, police have now arrested a suspect, who is being charged with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez’s car was discovered with a Romanian Cugir SA semi-automatic assault riffle and boxes of ammunition in it, and witnesses state he referred to the president as “the Anti-Christ” and said he “needed to kill him.”  Oretega-Hernadez was turned in by a hotel employee who saw him check in.

Legal analysts believe that the defense may try to use the fact that Obama was not in D.C. at the time of the attempt to try to get a lighter sentence.  Attempted assassination of the president carries a lifetime prison sentence.

Not that surprising, there has been talk that Obama is the Anti-Christ since he first started running for President.

Cont....Americans need to get out of the mindset that Socialism is some evil. Capitalism & Socialism can co-exist in one nation to the benefit of all. Don't believe the Koch Bros. propaganda. They could give a shit about you average folks! Capitalism is to their benefit and Socialism to yours. Use both systems! That way the wealthy still produce wealth (if they don't hoard it in hedge funds or off-shore where it benefits only them) and with Socialist programmes the average citizen can accrue some benefits like health care. The biggest peril to any nation is not knowing who their true enemy is. In this case it is the guys who own everybody and everything. It's not the puppets (the media and politicians) you have to fear but the hand inside the puppets that are running the show!

I think Thomas is absolutely correct. Americans are SOOOO afraid even of the word Socialism. Currently the US is as fascist as it can get. Look up the definition in any dictionary..."Any political or social ideology of the extreme right which relies on a pseudo-religious attitude & use of force for getting & keeping power" ... "putting down opposition by military/police means"..."spreading of false information by controlling the media for purposes of controlling the opinions of the majority". Does any of this ring a bell? The "born again" loonies, police brutality against demonstrations (Occupy Movement & union busting in the mid-west, FOX media owned by big business).Unbridled capitalist forces have the money to control the media & economy & get their way via covert means. They are in complete control including YOUR jobs. They foster dependence on the military & foreign interventions, legal or otherwise to further their interests.

Of course this demented dip-shit thinks HE is the new Christ. Nothing wrong with his brain. If the US had decent mental health care theis guy would be receiving treatment instead of shooting at miscellaneous "Antichrists".

Repubs are the "anti-Christ". They hide behind "religion" to fool people that they worship God and Jesus. The anti-Christ is good at fooling people.
