Forget the fiscal cliff, folks. Certain people are jumping off the Racial Cliff since Obama won last week. Did you hear the one about the woman who ran over her husband because he didn’t vote? Apparently she was a Romney supporter who took that Vote or Die thing seriously. Yeah, too seriously!
I swear, the way “certain people” are acting — you know, with currently petitions in all 50 states seeking secession? — you’d think Obama proposed to bring back slavery just for white people. Maybe I missed it during the campaign, but the way they act one would think that this was his policy agenda. I mean, why else would a woman run over her husband, or a man commit suicide because Obama was re-elected?
The fighting between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama may be over, but one political fight put an Evansville man behind bars.
Julian Knight was arrested on several outstanding warrants, but police say he could face a charge of battery by bodily waste.
Officers responded to Knight’s home Tuesday, after they say knight and his sister got into a fight. The sister says Julian spit on her after she told him she did not vote for Obama.
Now how’s that for fair and balanced? Oh yeah, and then there’s this:
A Florida tanning salon owner reportedly upset by President Barack Obama’s reelection apparently committed suicide after scrawling “F*** Obama” across his will.
The 64-year-old owner of a Tropical Tan salon in Key West, Fla., was “very upset about the election results,” his partner Michael Cossey told police Officer Anna Dykes, according to the Keynoter. Prior to his death, the owner was reportedly “very stressed about his business.” He told Cossey, “If Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around.”
The man was found dead in his bedroom on Nov. 8, according to the Keynoter. Empty prescription bottles were also found, one of which was Seroquel — a drug used to treat bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia.
A copy of the man’s living will was found on his bathroom sink, the Key West Citizen reports. The will contained handwriting that read, “Do not revive! F*** Obama!”
Cossey said he believes his partner may have ingested pills and alcohol, but the cause of death is pending an autopsy by the medical examiner. According to the Key West Citizen, Cossey said his partner was dealing with a struggling business.
So, is it that serious that you have to take your own life? No really, is it??
