Kesha Rogers Calls for Execution of President in Campaign Video

by: Karl-Thomas Musselman

Fri May 04, 2012 at 01:44 PM CDT

An inflammatory video produced by Kesha Rogers for US Congress (TX-22), calls for the execution of President Barack Obama. More specifically, the lyric in question is "His doctor should administer some pentothal of sodium". Sodium Pentothal is a chemical used in lethal injections. Watch the video below and judge for yourself. The song is styled off of Mary Poppin's "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

Kesha Rogers is directly affiliated with Lyndon Larouche, whose political movement has a history of violent rhetoric, anti-Semitism, and ties to radical groups. The Kesha Rogers campaign has compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler, and accused the Obama administration of being a puppet of the British Empire.

What a pitiful excuse for journalism. (0.00 / 0)
Sodium pentathol is well known as "truth serum." To say that this is a "call for execution" is preposterous, and malicious.  

Sodium Pentothal (0.00 / 0)
From the Wikipedia:

Sodium thiopental, better known as Sodium Pentothal (a trademark of Abbott Laboratories), thiopental, thiopentone sodium, or Trapanal (also a trademark), is a rapid-onset short-acting barbiturate general anaesthetic. Thiopental is a core medicine in the World Health Organization's "Essential Drugs List", which is a list of minimum medical needs for a basic healthcare system. It is also usually the first of three drugs administered during most lethal injections in the United States.

Is that a record?

It appears the video has changed; a different video is now at the same internet address as a previous one.  So I did not get to see the one that was detailed in the report.  

Same video (0.00 / 0)
The video has not changed. You can find the exact same video on my official YouTube page: http://youtu.be/ctRX43WCyYM

The confusion is understandable. (0.00 / 0)
You were probably expecting something very different, because the author of this article has presented a fraudulent misrepresentation of the content.

Mr. Musselman:

The video in no way calls for execution of the president, and your fabricated construction of the same suggests that you are either crazy or malevolent.  The video states, as I have repeatedly stated, that the President suffers from a severe narcissism problem which impairs his judgment and that this condition, together with his acting out (as in his version of an imperial presidency in which foreign leaders are assassinated, American citizens are subjected to kill orders, and the U.S. in general, cedes its economic sovereignty to a bunch of bankers centered in the City of London and Wall Street), constitutes grounds for lawful impeachment under our Constitution.  Any talk of assassinating the President is to be condemned and prosecuted, in my view, because it is morally reprehensible and would unleash a form of social chaos in this country from which it is doubtful we would ever recover.  

If you are not crazy but are simply malevolent, you betray yourself as a flack for the Democratic Party or the Obama campaign, engaged in the most despicable kind of dirty tricks against my campaign.  Kindly cease and desist.

Pot calling the kettle black? (4.00 / 2)
It's hilarious to see you calling KT "crazy or malevolent". Those are exactly the words I'd use to describe your video. Not the sodium pentathol line (which can be read either as referring to truth serum or to an execution drug), but the nastiness and absurdity of the entire video.

A couple of months ago I walked past some LaRouchites who were pushing literature at a (DC) subway station behind a poster of Obama with a Hitler mustache. What I said then applies equally well now:

You've got a First Amendment right to peddle your filth, but it's still filth.

At the end of the day... (0.00 / 0)
After all your juvenile slanders, Kesha won anyway.
