First, Hal Turner. Next, Bill White. Third, Daniel Jones. Now, ZOG has targeted a fourth victim. Johnny Logan Spencer Jr., a member of the National Socialist Movement's New Saxon community website, has been arrested and charged with posting a poem allegedly threatening President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on New Saxon. Stories published by the Washington Post, the Louisville Courier-Journal, and WLKY Channel 32; also on Stormfront, Newser, and a New Saxon blog,
The Secret Service claims Spencer, of Louisville KY, wrote and posted the poem, titled "The Sniper," on the New Saxon website. Special Agent Stephan M. Pazenzia said the poem describes a gunman shooting and killing a "tyrant," later identified as the president. The poem is said to be still available at New Saxon, but you have to be a member of the site and signed in to view it. However, the poem is included on the six-page criminal complaint filed against Spencer, and is replicated below (WLKY was able to host it, so I don't see any reason why I should get into trouble for cross-posting it here):
"As the tyrant enters his cross hairs the breath he takes is deep
His focus is square on the target as he begins to release
A patriot for his people he knows this shot will cost his life
But for his race and their existence it is a small sacrifice
The bullet that he has chambered is one of the purest pride
And the inspiration on the casing reads DIE negro DIE
He breathes out as he pulls the trigger releasing all his hate
And a smile appears upon his face as he seals that monkey's fate.
The bullet screams toward its mark bringing with it death
And where there was once a face there is nothing left
Two blood covered agents stare in horror and dismay
Looking down toward the ground where their president now lay
Now the screams of one old negro broad pierces thru the air
Setting off panic from every eyewitness that was there
And among all the confusion the hero calmly slips away
Laughing for he knows there will be another negro holiday
By Johnny Spencer
As you can see, this poem contains absolutely no reference to Barack or Michelle Obama. Only a paranoid schizo would make a connection.
Spencer appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin on Friday February 19th, 2010 for a detention hearing. Judge Whalin ordered Spencer released on $25,000 bond, but kept under house arrest at a family member's home. Spencer is charged with making threats against the president and threatening to kill or injure a major candidate for the office of the president; if convicted, he could face a maximum of 15 years in prison. Assistant U.S. Attorney Phillip Chance told Whalin that, even though investigators linked no weapons to Spencer, the poem doesn't qualify as protected political speech.
However, what also came out is that this poem has been posted since August 2007, and the Secret Service first became aware of it in November 2008. Yet the Secret Service waited 1 1/2 years before taking action, and did so only after an informant faxed a copy of the writings to the FBI. The Feds offered no reason for the delayed response or explanation as to how this poem is suddenly more threatening now than it was when first discovered by the Secret Service, nor could they explain why a poem written about Obama (according to them) long before he became President could suddenly be a threat now.
Federal public defender Laura Wyrosdick said no one took action to harm Obama in the two years the poem has been publicly available. After the hearing, Spencer's cousin, Paula McGill of Louisville, said family members were shocked by Spencer's arrest. "I don't think he thought it was going to catch up with him," McGill said. "He's not a harmful guy at all."
Reaction from First Amendment scholars was forthcoming. David Hudson, a scholar at the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University, said the case poses a difficult question of whether Spencer’s words fall under what is known as the “true threat” exception to the First Amendment. He said the courts have held that a statement may be deemed an illegal threat against the president if a reasonable person hearing or reading it would understand it as “a serious expression of intent to inflict bodily injury.” Jurors are instructed to consider the circumstances in which the statement was made and the reactions of those likely to hear or read it.
William Sharp, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky, which isn’t involved in the case, said: “If the government's prosecution is predicated solely on the poem, we believe that there would be a strong argument that the poem, despite its obviously horrific and racist imagery, would be protected speech under the First Amendment. The mere fact that authors write graphically violent imagery, even if born out of racist or otherwise repugnant beliefs, does not automatically remove First Amendment protections and justify criminal prosecution.”
