Secret Service Investigating Anti-Obama Swastika Carved Into Golf Course

October 14, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The owner of a golf course in Lakeville, Massachusetts awoke Monday morning to a sickening display of hateful vandalism carved into his pristine greens in this rural town Southeast of Boston. The vandals left a giant message with the letter “I” etched above a swastika with the word “Obama” underneath it on the 18th green.

This alarming incident is just another contemptible instance of the Nazi symbol used against our President. Since Barack Obama was elected, as the first black president in November, right-wing teabagger protesters and conservative bloggers have portrayed President Obama as Hitler and have called him a Nazi to express their opposition to the President’s policies.

The U.S. Secret Service and FBI are now investigating the vandalism as a hate crime and a threat against a sitting President of the United States. Steven Ricciardi, special agent in charge of the Secret Service’s Boston office said, “We investigate these cases thoroughly.” “The president is a protectee of the Secret Service. We investigate every potential and possible threat,” said Ricciardi.

The local police believe the vandals may have used cleats or the heels of their shoes to carve the 20 by 30 feet message of hate into the grass.

Gary Mosca, the owner of the golf course in the quiet rural town, whose home is located by the 18th hole, was sickened by the vandalism that can be seen from the street. He intends to repair the damage, as soon as he can. But meanwhile, Mosca and his children covered up the message of hate with a cardboard heart.

“I said, ‘This is sick,’ said Mosca. “They are going to do this stuff and cause a problem just to be anti-establishment or just to be tough guys. Their minds are probably demented enough to think of anything.”

Mosca is a supporter of President Obama and can’t understand the motivation behind such a revolting display of hate towards our President. “I love the president,” said Mosca. “I think he’s a great guy.”

“It’s so ridiculous and so disrespectful, as far as I’m concerned,” Mosca said. “President Obama has never done anything to deserve something like that,” added the golf course owner of 20 years.

The U.S. Secret Service recently confirmed that threats against the life of our President have risen as much as 400 percent, since his inauguration in January.

    And, what’s new? Golf has always been a medium for Republican protest.

    THAT is not a Nazi Swastika symbol. The guy doesn’t even know the difference, that is the Buddhist symbol of prayer, it is the reverse of the Hitler symbol, go look and compare. The stupid dork can’t even draw his hate symbols correctly. Everyone in Asia is laughing at that dummie now and also at all the USA newspapers for reporting the news without correcting the fact that the logo on the green IS NOT a swastika from the NAzi period but the reverse, in fact, the original Indian Buddist symnbol that means LET US PRAY. Really. Don’t believe me. Email me at danbloom GMAIL dot com

    in addition to it not being a swastika it seesm to be about someone or something called OBAMF. a tripod case or something has been added to make it look like OBAMA.
