Just before Christmas, Mike O’Neal, Speaker of the Kansas statehouse, forwarded a pair of emails that took shots at the President and the First Lady.
The first email included a picture of Mrs. Obama and the Grinch and asked if they were separated at birth. The email also read, “I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense, of course.”
Speaker O’Neal added his thoughts: “Sorry, just had to forward this latest holiday message! I’ve had worse hair days but this is pretty funny.”
The email was obtained by The Lawrence Journal-World, and now–weeks later–O’Neal is apologizing.
O’Neal claimed he didn’t see the “Mrs. YoMama” remark, but told the paper, “To those I have offended, I am sorry. That was not my intent.”
It might not have been O’Neal’s intent to offend anyone because he forwarded the email to other like-minded individuals and never thought it would make its way to the light. And although the email about Mrs. Obama was in bad taste, a second email about the President and his family hints at something even more sinister: assassination.
Raw Story reports:
The Journal-World also revealed that O’Neal had forward another email which referenced the Bible verse Psalm 109:8, which reads: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.”
The very next verse adds: “Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.”
The verse became a conservative meme in 2009 after it began appearing on bumper stickers, t-shirts and even toys. The most common slogan was, “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8.”
“At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president!” O’Neal wrote. “Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!”
So far, Speaker O’Neal hasn’t apologized for praying for the President’s death.
