A Tea Party councilman is so far defying calls for his resignation after an old video resurfaced that shows him holding signs depicting President Obama’s head on a pike, former Governor Jennifer Granholm with a noose around her neck and Nancy Pelosi with several bullet holes through her face.
Paul Smith, a city councilman in Sterling Heights, Michigan, is clearly seen in a 2009 video holding a sign with a photo of President Obama’s dismembered head atop a pike and a caption reading “shit on a stick,”
To show our governor, our president, the Speaker of the house, what we really think of them. That these people are anti-American, they’re un-American. Basically, they’re worse than any of the enemies America has ever fought against…We fought against communism for 46 years in the cold war, and basically we’ve let a communist in the White House. He’s not just a socialist, he’s an out-and-out communist. He’s taken over the auto industry, he’s taken over the banks. Socialists have high taxes, communists take over businesses, take over ownership. That’s what he’s done, that’s why I’m against him.
