The simple fact that none of these "celebrities" were ever charged in any way shows that there is an organized and blatant attempt to rile up hatred of Obama to the point of violence.
2. Yazmany Arboleda (2008): An alleged Colombian, Yazmany Arboleda produced one of the most hateful and despicable works of art in recorded history. His collection, "The Assassination of Barack Obama", was allegedly shut down by the Secret Service after a big media storm descended onto his New York Gallery. Naturally, Yamany was never charged, and his gallery remained open for business.
3. Doron Braunshtein (2008): An Israeli born citizen, Doron Braunstein, also known as Apollo Braun, is selling sweatshirts with the words "Who Killed Obama?" in New York City for $129.00, and has plans to profit tremendously off the upcoming assassination of U.S. President Barack Obama.
4. Bill White (2008): Bill White, and alleged Neo-Nazi, is famous for publishing the National Socialist magazine with the hateful message of "Kill this Nigger?", in reference to U.S. President Barack Obama. A closer look at White reveals that he may be in fact a government agent provocateur due to the simple fact that he has repeatedly committed crimes without ever serving any real jail time. As evidenced by his Wikipedia page below, White has escaped punishment from both state and federal authorities for numerous crimes, including the blatant provocateuring of an Obama assassination. Bill White's ethnicity is also a mystery, as he exhibits Israeli-Middle Eastern traits rather than the German blonde haired blue-eyed traits white supremacists are famous for.
7. University of Texas at Austin GOP Leader (2011): Lauren E. Pierce, the leader of the College Republicans at UT Austin and part of the Republican Party, stated on her Twitter account that “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.” The comments came hours after Pennsylvania State Police arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man for allegedly firing a semi-automatic rifle at the White House.

OBAMACSI.COM: Singer Ted Nugent likely started the entire media mantra of assassinating U.S. President Barack Obama. Before there were any plots or patsies to parade in front of the media, Nugent was on stage screaming inflammatory and hateful messages about Obama while holding his machine gun.

Abstract: Renegade right-winger Ted Nugent recently went on a vicious onstage rant in which he threatened the lives of Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Decked out in full-on camouflage hunting gear, Nugent wielded two machine guns while raging, "Obama, he's a piece of shit.
I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary," he continued. "You might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch." Nugent summed up his eloquent speech by screaming "freedom!"
This isn't the first time Nugent has been caught spewing hatred. Last January, the guitarist caused a scandal for Republican Texas governor Rick Perry when he wore a Confederate flag shirt and insulted immigrants at Perry's inauguration event.
In July, Nugent was quoted in a Wall Street Journal story blaming "stoned, dirty, stinky hippies" for "rising rates of divorce, high school drop-outs, drug use, abortion, sexual diseases and crime, not to mention the exponential expansion of government and taxes" (Rolling Stone, 2007).

OBAMACSI.COM: Yazmany Arboleda produced one of the most hateful and despicable works of art in recorded history. His collection, "The Assassination of Barack Obama", was allegedly shut down by the Secret Service after a big media storm descended onto his New York Gallery. Yamany was never charged, and his gallery remained open for business. Based on his birth name, his inflammatory art, his ability to legally get away with his assassination art and not be charged, his ability to immediately get his art collection into the New York Times, his position at Huffington Post, his political contacts and associates, and to where he donates his money (Jewish Charities), we can assume that Yazmany Arboleda is more likely Jewish and/or Israeli than Colombian.

Title: ‘Assassination’ Artist Is Questioned And Released
Date: June 4, 2008
Source: New York Times
Abstract: This morning, a Boston-born performance artist, Yazmany Arboleda, tried to set up a provocative art exhibition in a vacant storefront on West 40th Street in Midtown Manhattan with the title, “The Assassination of Hillary Clinton/The Assassination of Barack Obama,” in neatly stenciled letters on the plate glass windows at street level.
By 9:30 a.m., New York City police detectives and Secret Service agents had shut down the exhibition, and building workers had quickly covered over the inflammatory title with large sheets of brown paper and blue masking tape. The gallery is across the street from the southern entrance to The New York Times building.
The police officers declined to answer any questions, and at first would not permit reporters to speak with Mr. Arboleda, who was wearing a black T-shirt and making cellphone calls from inside the makeshift gallery.
Later, Mr. Arboleda, who is 27, said in an interview: “It’s art. It’s not supposed to be harmful. It’s about character assassination — about how Obama and Hillary have been portrayed by the media.” He added, “It’s about the media.”
“The Secret Service had to do a whole questionnaire with me,” he said. “It was about an hour of questioning. They asked if I owned guns, if I was a violent person, if I had ever been institutionalized.”
Mr. Arboleda answered no. Nonetheless, he said the Secret Service asked him if he would voluntarily take down the exhibition title from the window.
“I’m renting that space; the space was allocated for an exhibition and it’s my right to put those words up,” he said. “They said it could incite someone to do something crazy, like break the window. It’s terrible, because they’re violating my rights. If someone breaks a window, they’re committing a crime.”
He added, “The exhibition is supposed to be about character assassination. It’s philosophical and metaphorical.”
He said he had not yet decided whether to take down the exhibition’s title, saying he first needed to speak to representatives of the building’s owner.
Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, speaking to reporters at 1 Police Plaza around noon, said, “I am not certain he has been arrested,” then added, “He put up signs indicating the assassination of Senator Clinton and Barack Obama. And we notified the Secret Service. This individual is being spoken to. He apparently made statements that had to with their reputation. This is all under investigation.”
Asked whether the artwork was being seen as dangerous, Mr. Kelly said: “Obviously, it sounds totally inappropriate. We need more information as to what the purpose of it was. As I say, apparently he made some statements that he was referring to their reputations … don’t know, we will have to get more information. But he is being questioned now by our detectives and the Secret Service.”
Mr. Kelly was also asked why the artist would be questioned at all. “Why would we question him?” he responded. “Well, we want to determine what his motives are. Obviously they could be interpreted as advocating harm to protectees; both of the senators, of course, are now being provided Secret Service protection, that’s why the Secret Service was interested; both of them are federal employees, so, ah, of course it is a concern to federal authorities as it is to ourselves. Our lawyers are researching it and will determine if there are any violations of law; right now he is being questioned.”
(In fact, when Mr. Kelly spoke, Mr. Arboleda had already been released from custody a short while earlier.)
Special Agent Eric P. Zahren, a spokesman for the Secret Service in Washington, emphasized in a telephone interview that the agency did not seek to shut down the show.
“We did not shut down that exhibit or request that anybody else shut
it down,” Agent Zahren said. “This was brought to our attention, we went
out there and had a conversation with the individual, but we did not
shut it down” (New York Times, 2008).

Abstract: Designer Doron Braunshtein, a.k.a. Apollo Braun, expresses his interest in matters political with his newest work of sweatshirt-related art. And you can too, for the low price of $129! Braunshtein, who describes himself as "very punk rock," says his message is one of love, not of assassination [NY Press]. Though he worries, "Could you imagine if Obama were killed? They might blame me. Then I'd be taken to jail and have to have prison sex." Let's all hope no such thing comes to pass! To be fair, this sweatshirt fits with a certain ongoing theme, as this picture of Braunshtein's last big t-shirt design ($250) attests (Gawker, 2008).
Title: Apollo Braun Comes Out With Yet Another Anti-Obama T-Shirt

Abstract: Israeli born, New York based pop artist and fashion designer Doron Braunshtein, also known as Apollo Braun, owner of the five year old “Apollo Braun” boutique on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side, crossed all limits and boundaries with his new creation: a t-shirt bearing the slogan “Obama = Hitler”. As of yesterday, the batch of the first 200 t-shirts came to his store and seven of his most devoted customers already bought the t-shirt, which cost only $30. “I never thought I would ever sell something that I created at such a cheap price,” Braunshtein says, “but you have to understand me, I want to see as many people as I can wearing my idea, and I don’t want money to stand between them and this fabulous t-shirt.”
Braunshtein explains why he made the association between Obama and
Hitler: “I have an incredible imagination, you can call it a Jewish
imagination if you want and it is what it is, Obama reminds me of Hitler
in more ways than I can explain. I mean, every time I hear Obama speak,
I automatically think about Hitler. Hitler was an excellent speaker,
who gave great speeches and made the masses follow him almost blindly,
Obama is also an excellent speaker, who gives great speeches – like the
incredible speech about race – who encourages the masses to follow him.
But exactly like Hitler, in my opinion, Obama doesn’t talk, he just
preaches, for God’s sake, does anyone understand a word he is saying?
All I hear him do is just preach and preach. Also, Obama, exactly like
Hitler in his time, will tell you whatever you want to hear, can manage
any kind of crowd of people and will promise you the world, but what can
I tell you, I am just not his fan. He cannot fool me. Also, the second
reason which made me put this idea on a t-shirt was the fact that as an
artist, it is amazing in my opinion to have the ability, the creative
right, and the freedom of speech to use someone as Hitler and to compare
him to someone like Obama. I mean, Hitler would turn in his grave right
now if he only knew that a Jewish, Lower East Side pop artist like me
is comparing him to a black presidential candidate in 2008 in the United
States. The artist, like I always say, always beats any politician in
the end” (Jews Against Obama, 2011).

Title: Neo-Nazi Magazine To Feature Obama Assassination Cover
Date: September 12, 2008
Source: Southern Poverty Law Center
Abstract: Neo-Nazi boss Bill White, long given to swaggering threats and proposals for violence, this week went even further than normal — announcing plans for a magazine cover headlined “Kill This NIGGER?” with a photo of Barack Obama and, two days later, publishing the home address of a juror who helped convict another neo-Nazi leader in a federal conspiracy case.
On Tuesday, White posted on his Overthrow.com website a request for money to pay for a special issue of his National Socialist magazine. The mocked-up cover, with a huge “Kill This NIGGER?” headline, shows Obama speaking to a crowd with a rifle’s crosshairs superimposed on his head. White said that the accompanying article would explain the Democratic presidential nominee’s “radical Communist politics and Jewish backers … and how he plans genocide against white working people.”
Then, on Thursday, White posted the name, home address and several phone numbers for an allegedly “Gay Jewish anti-racist” juror who helped convict Matt Hale, then-leader of the neo-Nazi World Church of the Creator, of soliciting the murder of a federal judge. Hale was sentenced in 2005 to 40 years in prison.
White does not directly propose violence against the juror. But he told his readers that the man “played a leading role in inciting both the conviction and the harsh sentence that followed.” He also described the conviction as wrongful and said that the prison term handed Hale was a “criminally long sentence.”
White, who lives in Roanoke, Va., has a long history of
issuing sneering threats and vulgar, racist attacks. Earlier this summer, on
July 22, he verbally attacked what he called “‘respectable’ niggers” in the
NAACP and elsewhere in American society. “I am convinced, more and more each
day, that the only solution to this problem is to kill all of the niggers
involved, preferably with state sponsorship,” he wrote. “When the death squads
come, line me up as volunteer number one” (Southern
Poverty Law Center, 2008).
Abstract: In October 2007, White was attacked by Aries Brown and Lattoria Minnis, two African-Americans whose claims that White had assaulted them were dismissed by a judge. During the trial, White testified that he choked Brown unconscious during the incident. He later published an essay, "Transcendence and the Killing of the Wicked," describing the experience.
On October 17, 2008, White was arrested in Roanoke, Virginia by the FBI. The arrest stemmed from an alleged threat White made against a federal juror involved in the 2004 Matthew F. Hale case and posting the juror's personal information online. White was held without bond. Other counts against White, filed December 11, 2008, included alleged threats he made against poor black tenants suing their landlords, and threats against others, including Warman, columnist Leonard Pitts, former South Harrison Township, New Jersey mayor Charles Tyson, and a university administrator from Delaware.
In July 2009, one count of inciting violence was dismissed by the judge. The trial on the seven remaining charges began on December 9, 2009. On December 18, the jury found White guilty on four counts and not guilty on three counts.
On February 8, 2010, a Federal judge dismissed White's conviction of threatening Warman. On April 14, 2010 White was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment. Judge James Turk said he rarely sentences defendants on the high side of guidelines, but did so because of the fear White instilled in many of his victims.The conviction was reversed as violating the First Amendment, and White was released in April, 2011 (Wikipedia, 2011).

Title: “Assassinate the Nigger Ape” : Obama, Implicit Imagery, And The Dire Consequences Of Racist Jokes
Date: August 14, 2009
Source: Cornell University
Abstract: In 1994, Congress passed legislation stating that Presidents elected to office after January 1, 1997 would no longer receive lifetime Secret Service protection. Such legislation was unremarkable until the first Black President—Barack Obama—was elected.
From the outset of his campaign until today, and likely beyond, President Obama has received unprecedented death threats. These threats, we argue, are at least in part tied to critics’ and commentators’ use of symbols, pictures, and words to characterize Obama as a primate in various forms.
As a point of departure, we refer specifically to the racist humor in Sean Delonas’ controversial New York Post cartoon of February 2009. Against this backdrop while looking to history, cultural studies, theories of humor, federal case law, as well as cognitive and social psychology, we explore how the use of seemingly harmless imagery may still be racially-laden and evoke violence against its object.
By employing this rigorously interdisciplinary approach to the topic, we bridge the theoretical with the empirical in order to make a compelling case for the direct link between jokes—and cultural symbolism more broadly—and assassination threat to the United States’ first Black President (Cornell University, 2009).

Abstract: Hours after Pennsylvania State Police arrested a 21-year-old Idaho man for allegedly firing a semi-automatic rifle at the White House, the top student official for the College Republicans at the University of Texas tweeted that the idea of assassinating President Obama was “tempting.”
At 2:29 p.m. ET, UT’s Lauren E. Pierce wrote: “Y’all as tempting as it may be, don’t shoot Obama. We need him to go down in history as the WORST president we’ve EVER had! #2012.”
Pierce, the president of the College Republicans at UT Austin, told ABC News the comment was a “joke” and that the “whole [shooting incident] was stupid.” Giggling, she said that an attempted assassination would “only make the situation worse.”
“Insofar as she’s a representative [of the College Republicans], maybe it shouldn’t be said, but she’s made a positive statement in a way, ” said Cassie Wright, the group’s vice president.
“I don’t really see anything wrong with it,” Wright added. “It’s just a personal comment, not representative of any group. Just freedom of speech, you know?”
Public Relations Director Spencer Raley had no comment.
Earlier in the day, Secret Service Special Agent in Charge Edwin Donovan revealed that Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez had been taken into police custody after a nationwide search. The suspect was found at a Hampton Inn near Indiana, Pa.The Secret Service told ABC News Tuesday it suspected that a bullet fired during an incident last Friday may have hit a White House window. The agency said it feared the suspect might pose a threat to President Obama (ABC News, 2011).
