Gun-Toter From Obama Event: I, Like My Pastor, Want The President To Die
The violent anti-Obama sentiment coming out of central Arizona managed to get still more toxic over the weekend.
Chris Broughton, the man who brought an AR-15 rifle and a handgun to an Arizona Obama rally earlier this month, says he “concurs” with his fundamentalist pastor’s prayer for President Obama “to die and go to hell.”
And in an interview with a local TV station, pastor Steven Anderson himself elaborated on his statement to TPMmuckraker that he would prefer Obama to die of natural causes so “he’s not some martyr.”
“I don’t want him to be a martyr, we don’t need another holiday. I’d like to see him die, like Ted Kennedy, of brain cancer,” Anderson now says.
Broughton said of Anderson’s controversial August 16 “Why I Hate Barack Obama” sermon: “I concur, I think we’d be better off if God would send [Obama] where he’s going now instead of later. [Obama] is destroying our country.”

Broughton said he moved to the Tempe area to attend Anderson’s storefront church, which is an “old-fashioned, independent, fundamental, King James Bible only, separated Baptist church.”

Roughly 24 hours after attending Anderson’s anti-Obama sermon, Broughton made national headlines when he showed up heavily armed to an Obama event in Phoenix.

The Secret Service says they’re aware of the latest out of Arizona and “appropriate follow up will be conducted.”

Umhm…sure.
