Denise Helms, a twenty-two year old California woman was removed from her job at Cold Stone Creamery and is currently being investigated by the FBI for her racist and borderline threatening facebook status. Her status said, “Another 4 years of this (N-word), Maybe he will get assassinated this term.” This brings me back to the question I asked in my last blog about Donald Trump, I understand that not everybody is going to be excited with the outcome of the election; but why take it to such extremes where you have to be SO negative and derogatory?  There is a respectful way to go about voicing your opinion, and if Romney would have won the campaign people would have had to voice their opinions in a respectful manner, and regardless of disappointment he still would have been recognized as “our” President, and by “our” I mean America. So why is there such a big difference?

Helms’ facebook has been deactivated, and when asked about her comments this is how she responded:  “The assassination part is kind of harsh. I’m not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don’t think I’d care one bit.”

The video of her interview can be found below:

  1. Important story. This election has been notable by all the bashing of both candidates that took place on Facebook — and Twitter. People, like this woman, also seem not to realize that threatening a sitting president is a crime.
