Absolutely uncalled for: Facebook jerks post poll on presidential assassination

Sheer asshattery:

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a “poll” posted on Facebook that asked users the most unsocial, unspeakable question: Should President Obama be assassinated?

Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said the agency will take “appropriate investigative steps” in connection to the survey, which was posted on Saturday and was quickly removed when Facebook employees were alerted to its existence.

“We are continuing our investigation,” Donovan told FOXNews.com, declining further comment.

First of all, no true American suggests assassination of a duly-elected president regardless of whether they personally voted for them or not. The jerks who posted this have little regard for our democracy, clearly, unless things are going their way. That’s not the measure of an American. It’s when the vote didn’t go your way and you remain committed to practice of democracy that shows your true colors.

Second, it’s not like Facebook is a completely anonymous system. You have to log in to add content which makes putting this kind of stupidity on the site… well, stupid. Go get ’em, Service.
