More On Steven L Anderson/More On Chris Broughton

Remember Steven L Anderson and Chris Broughton? One showed up to a recent Obama rally armed with an AR-15 and the other is his pastor who preached a sermon only a day earlier that he wants President Obama dead.

I wondered when the good pastor would be arrested for threatening the life of the President of the United States.

There are some follow-ups to the story.

Anderson has refined his position on the President's demise:
"If you want to know how I'd like to see Obama die, I'd like him to die of natural causes," said Anderson. "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."
And Broughton (bless his heart) adds:
"I concur, I think we'd be better off if God would send (Obama) where he's going now instead of later," said Broughton. "(Obama) is destroying our country."

When asked if he was advocating violence against the President, Broughton said he wouldn't answer the question directly.
That's enough. Add Chris Broughton to the list of Arizonans who should be arrested for threatening the life of the President of the United States.

TPM had this from the Secret Service:
Asked about pastor Steven Anderson and gun-toter Chris Broughton's repeated wishes for President Barack Obama to die, Special Agent Darrin Blackford of the Secret Service sends along this statement:

"We are aware of the situation and appropriate follow up will be conducted."
Which is probably all we'll get from the Secret Service (and rightly so) at this point.

I can see when David would be alarmed when a elite is threatened.
Common citizens on the other hand no cause for much alarm.
In May 2007, During a Rainbow/PUSH Coalition protest outside a suburban Chicago gun shop, Pfleger was accused of threatening the life of the owner, John Riggio. The Illinois State Rifle Association released a tape where Pfleger was heard telling the assembled crowd, "He's the owner of Chuck's. John Riggio. R-i-g-g-i-o. We're going to find you and snuff you out… you know you're going to hide like a rat. You're going to hide but like a rat we're going to catch you and pull you out." Pfleger later claimed his use of the phrase "snuff you out" was misinterpreted.
