A group of idiotic right-wing radicals have reportedly started a Facebook page in honor of lynching President Obama and then making the lynching day a national holiday.

A conservative Facebook group this week suggested that the lynching of President Barack Obama should be made into a “national holiday.”
Earlier this week, Examiner.com’s Robert Sobel pointed out that the Facebook group “America the next generation” had posted a photo of the president in a noose [pictured above] with the caption “The making of a National Holiday.”
The image was apparently a composite of Obama’s head and a frame from the leaked video of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein being executed.
After some discussion between members of the “America the next generation” group and criticism from other Facebook users, the photo was eventually taken down. Some group members feared that lynching the president could make him into a “martyr.”
“OK by are own choice out of respect of our regular followers that requested us to remove the post with the noose around Obamas head,” the group wrote on New Year’s Eve. “[W]e did so out of Respect to them and we will take the high road!”
The level of disrespect that people have had for this President is unprecedented. Racism truly is alive and well, folks.
