Top Republican Fundraiser ‘Jokes’ About Obama Assasination

October 19, 2008

Remember this name: Al Austin

Al Austin, portrayed in a more fitting black & white with sepia tones. His humor is straight out of a 1940's or 50's dictatorship.

Mr. Austin, a top Republican fundraiser from Tampa, Florida, has mass emailed a ‘joke’ about blowing up Obama and his wife, Michelle. The punchline was “it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss, and it probably wouldn’t be an accident either.” That was the punchline to a ‘joke’ about killing a sitting US Senator, and a man who in three weeks could be the President-Elect.

This man, this horrible person, Al Austin, is not a fringe individual in the Republican Party. He is the former Finance Chairman for the National Republican Party. He has also been a co-chair of commitees to bring the Republican National Convention to Tampa, as well as personally donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Republican Party and Republican candidates. Mr. Austin has raised millions upon millions of dollars for Republicans as a fundraiser.

He probably feels comfortable in his 18 room mansion, and driving his fancy cars. Beyond wealthy, he is a massively successful real estate developer that uses his political sway to make money. He goes so far as to have personal meetings with President Bush, the outcome of said meetings can’t be quite certain, but we do know that splendor and wealth rains down on this heinous man faster than he can spend it.

This is the Republican party of today. Comfortable with questioning others patriotism and motives, all the while pushing forward the idea that blowing up those you don’t agree with would be no big deal. The very core of the Republican party has become a respite for those with less morals than dollars, and more hatred for opponents than love for country.

I do not simply call on John McCain and President Bush to publicly disavow this pathetic excuse for a man, but I call on this detestable hate filled man to leave the country. Leave this country so that those of us who do not profess killing those that are on the other side of the aisle can shake hands and move forward with the urgent business at hand. Leave the country, Mr. Austin, so that real patriots, those that care about all Americans can stabilize this quickly fracturing political landscape. Leave the country, you wizened, filthy endorser of terrorism. Leave for the good of the nation you claim to care about.

  1. BLOW HIM UP! NOW THAT WOULD BE FUNNY

    Note from ‘plaid lemur’

    It wouldn’t be funny.

    It would be ironic, however.


  2. Yes, This is the true colors of the Grand Old Party … just like old George, Dick and associates….owned by the rich of big business. No surprise here. Please wake up the blind, deaf and dumb good old boys and gals. We are ALL …just disposable worker bees for this gang.


  3. ITS SAD BUT WERE SO RACIST AND PLAY VICTIM SO MUCH IF HE HAD SAID BLOW MCCAIN AND THE CRACK HEAD UP , IT LL BE HELL TO PLAY BUT WHERE SO STUPID WE WOULD RATHER BE RAN INTO THE GROUND BY OUR OWN RACE THAT WE ARE EVEN THINKING ABOUT ELECTING ANOTHER RICH FAT CAT WHOOSE GOING TO CONTINUE LOOKING OUT FOR BIG BUISNESS DONT COMPLAIN AND HAVE THE NERVE TO COMPLAIN WHEN WERE STUCK IN 4 WARS AND BANKRUPT RETARDS


  4. I want to read that joke before I start yelling and hollering. I haven’t gotten it in my E-Mail.
    And IF Austin sent it ‘privatly’ to someone else, we shouldn’t even know about it.
    If it was wdely circulated, maybe charges should brought up. Abetting and encouraging assasination of a public officer???


  5. I do not understand why people cannot see the REPUBLICANS have always supported the rich and expected us worker bees to survive from the table scraps they throw us. Please wake up and see what is happening to this country and stop worrying about the color of the two men running for office and focus on what they propose to help us worker bees.

    PS: My plumber makes $90.00 and hour and is richer than me and I have a Masters Degree, Joe the plumer is not the average Joe.


  6. The racist Rev. Wright should be the first to leave the country – then Austin. Horrible people are connected with both parties – it’s not just a republican or democrat problem.


  7. What goes round ,comes round.
    This man WILL reap what he sows,


  8. Plaid Lemur,

    I really appreciate your crisp and undiluted insight. Keep up the good work and I’ll continue returning again and again.

    Also, check me out if you ever get a spare moment.

  9. Thanks jmwinn! I appreciate it, truly.

    I checked out your blog, and found it pretty kick ass. You’re going in my links, thank you for yours.


  10. And these murderous members of today’s
    “Party of Lincoln” still have the gall to call themselves patriots and Christians? When will the blind, deaf, and dumb who still think America is a “Nation of Laws,” “the Defender of Freedom,” “Guardian of the World’s Liberty,” and who knows what else, ever wake up to what’s happened to what’s left of their country?


  11. Here’s a little more historical perspective, provoked by this latest piece of treason from Herr Austin.

    “Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of our leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked. and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”

    -Hermann Wilhelm Goering (1893-1946)
    German politician and Nazi leader; Field
    marshal in Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich
    (1938-1945); convicted of war crimes;
    committed suicide.


  12. And don’t forget that the renowned Lee Atwater, who got his start with the Great Communicator and went on to usher in Dubya to the Dark House — remember him? — suddenly turned Catholic on his death bed and begged for forgiveness from the people he had wronged with his worse-than-dirty-tricks.

    I used to tell my students, “History repeats itself because we refuse to learn from it.”

    Will we ever learn? What goes around comes around.


  13. I’m not exactly sure it’s possible to kick someone out of the country for making a bad joke.

  14. It’s funny that some people would have a problem with viewing this man’s e-mail even though it has terroristic tones to it… when Republicans have encouraged such practices with supposed “enemies” for the past 8 years under the guise of something they like to call the “Patriot Act”.


  15. […] sense of taste. Apparently, for making light of the hypothetical assassination of Barack Obama, there’s no time like the present. For […]


  16. Crazy republicans !

  17. Well, technically, the Secret Service should be investigating him since making such comments against a president or a presidential candidate warrants an investigation.

    And I can attest to Republican committee heads being full of rage. They really have a big problem with anybody thinking differently.


  18. nuts, when will people get a clue? this guy is an idiot.


  19. spreken ze deutch?

    Er… I don’t get it?

    Yes, he sounds like a major idiot, but what does misspelt German have to do with it?


  20. Then there is this bludgeoning — murder, unless she recovers — of Arkansas news anchor Anne Pressley, who had a minor part in Oliver Stone’s movie W and who had interviewed Cheney.

    The “Southern mafia” has been active in Arkansas before and has also been blamed for Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas.

    This Austin should be at least interviewed, if not charged, by the FBI … if the FBI can be trusted anymore.

    This may also be in part an attempt to intimidate Obama and Biden, so that they will agree not to start criminal investigations into the Republicans, once they take office. The Republicans — including Austin, apparently — are that desperate with the Obama landslide coming.


  21. Sorry kraut salad,

    A joke was all. Each of my polls has a third answer that is far from serious.


  22. From the Secret Service webpage:
    http://www.ustreas.gov/usss/protection.shtml

    (below slightly condensed check site for full texts)

    Today, the Secret Service is authorized by law to protect:
    1.The president, the vice president, (or other individuals next in order of succession to the Office of the President), the president-elect and vice president-elect and the immediate families of the above individuals

    2.Former presidents, children of former presidents until age 16 and their spouses for their lifetimes, except when the spouse remarries.

    3.Visiting heads of foreign states and spouses traveling with them, distinguished foreign visitors to the United States, and official representatives of the United States performing special missions abroad

    4. Major presidential and vice presidential candidates, and their spouses within 120 days of a general presidential election

    5. Other individuals as designated per Executive Order of the President

    From the Secret Service website:
    http://www.ustreas.gov/usss/faq.shtml#faq4
    What types of crimes does the Secret Service investigate?

    The Secret Service has primary jurisdiction to investigate threats against Secret Service protectees as well as financial crimes.

    Since the Patriot Act II, United States citizens civilians can be deemed “combatants”, the following: suspects in such cases can be charged with communicating a threat or bomb threat, under Article 134 of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice. It would be interesting to see Al Austin, the former Finance Chairman for the National Republican Party, investigated during a stay at Guantanimo.
    But of course, Patriot Act II isn’t intended for “their guys”.

    It’s for the rest of us.


  23. Al Austin is an absolute disgrace and appropriate action should be taken against him for his hateful remarks. Had death threats been amde against John McCain, we would have all heard about it long ago.


  24. love obama:)
