In the real world, you can’t go around threatening the President and in the real world, having an opinion doesn’t usually put food on the table. Birther Daryn Moran on a YouTube video called President Obama a “known forger” (I didn’t know that) and said he was going to “gas up the car” and head to Washington and arrest the President himself, not with a shotgun or a knife, but with a Constitution and a Bible (and whole lot of delusional thinking IMO).
It’s that up close and personal thing that got Moran noticed by the Secret Service, who takes any physical threat to the President very seriously. It didn’t help, I suppose, that Moran goaded the Secret Service saying: “Call your Secret Service, coward…wimp…coward…You have no proof of who you are.”
According to an extended interview with Moran that appears in the Post & Email, Moran was visited at 3:30 AM by two Secret Service agents and a county sheriff. So I guess the trip to DC is off. Since then all of his Obama eligibility videos were taken down from YouTube. The following was reposted by someone else.
Sheriff, I’m gonna do your job
Moran, who says he is unemployed since his discharge from the Air Force, has had another reality check. He explained his lack of income this way:
So I’ve been tied up, and I’ve been concerned about how an application for a job would go over when I go in for an interview and I have to explain the whole story, and I might need to tell them things that they might not like.
Moran has made an appeal for private charity, since he has no income due to his obsession with Obama taking up the time that could have been used looking for a job. I have no objection to people taking moral stands, but they should understand that moral stands can have consequences.
Moran arrived in DC and was again visited by the Secret Service and the Capitol Police, according to an email from Moran to the Post and Email.
My finances may run out and I may have to return home.
I agree with the Secret Service: he should seek psychiatric help. I’m not worried about Obama, but this guy may harm himself.
