The guy above is Kansas House Speaker Mike O'Neal (R). Normally he wouldn't rate a mention on DDSS if it wasn't for the following story:
ThinkProgress reported last week that Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal (R) was forced to apologize to First Lady Michelle Obama after forwarding an email to fellow lawmakers that called her “Mrs. YoMama” and compared her to the Grinch.
Earlier that same week, the Lawrence Journal-World was sent another email that O’Neal had forwarded to House Republicans that referred to President Obama and a Bible verse that says “Let his days be few” and calls for his children to be without a father and his wife to be widowed.
Nick Sementelli at Faith in Public Life notes that Psalm 109, which is a prayer for the death of a leader, became a popular conservative meme after Obama’s election. The “tongue-in-cheek” prayer for the president was seen on bumper stickers.
These guys just won't let up against the president and the First Family. They've just about called them everything except "niggers" and "children of God." There seems to be no end to the color-aroused bile they're obligated to reflexively spew time and again.
The verse? It's Psalm 109, "A Cry for Vengeance," as noted here:
|1||Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise;|
|2||for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me:|
|3||They compassed me about also with words of hatred;|
|4||For my love they are my adversaries:|
|5||And they have rewarded me evil for good,|
|6||Set thou a wicked man over him:|
|7||When he shall be judged, let him be condemned:|
|8||Let his days be few;|
|9||Let his children be fatherless,|
|10||Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg:|
|11||Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;|
|12||Let there be none to extend mercy unto him:|
|13||Let his posterity be cut off;|
|14||Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD;|
|15||Let them be before the LORD continually,|
|16||Because that he remembered not to show mercy,|
|17||As he loved cursing,|
|18||As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment,|
|19||Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him,|
|20||Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD,|
|21||But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake:|
|22||For I am poor and needy,|
|23||I am gone like the shadow when it declineth:|
|24||My knees are weak through fasting;|
|25||I became also a reproach unto them:|
|26||Help me, O LORD my God:|
|27||that they may know that this is thy hand;|
|28||Let them curse, but bless thou:|
|29||Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame;|
|30||I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth;|
|31||For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor,|
These guys can be some rather vindictive motherfuckers, can they? I bet if someone sent Speaker O'Neal this verse in a threatening context, O'Neal would do his damnedest to round up every state trooper and FBI agent available to track down and shitcan whoever sent it.
