A man by the name of David Andrew Christenson, who claims in his Twitter feed that he was classified as a terrorist by the United States Department of Justice in 2010, and who believes in conspiracy theories involving Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill, has posted at least five videos on YouTube in which he calls for the assassination of President Obama, former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin, as well as senators and CEOs of private companies.
Christenson, who has been jailed for threatening the son of an FBI agent, claims that the people he wants assassinated all know that the U.S. military used bioweapons against New Orleans during Katrina, resulting in something called the “Katrina Virus” being released and killing losts of people.
(Cue Twilight Zone music…)
The videos do not hide his desires. In the titles of his videos, he “hopes and prays that (fill-in-the-blank) is assassinated”, in so many words. Despite a wide-scale campaign to get Youtube to remove the videos, and despite that surely someone – and more likely many, many people – has notified the FBI and Homeland Security about this lunatic, the videos are still up. The ones where he discusses the assassination of President Obama are posted below.
These truly are strange times that we live in. Why are the videos still up, and why is this guy not locked in a padded cell somewhere?
UPDATE: Apparently, Christenson’s videos will stay on Youtube. His account was frozen for a couple of weeks while they made the decision. At least according to Christenson’s latest video, seen below.
Let us know what you think about Youtube’s decision to keep this man “on the air”.
