*A wannabe Tea Party politician in California has called for the assassination of President Obama and his “monkey children” in a recent Facebook rant – and then defended his right to do so Monday.

According to the New York Daily News, Jules Manson, who failed miserably in his 2011 bid for a City Council seat in Carson, Calif., urged the sickening reprisal, saying Obama’s support of a revised military authorization bill last week was an act of “treason” that “eroded” constitutional protections.

“It must be countered with assassinations onto them and their children,” he wrote in the original posting that has since been scrubbed from his Facebook profile.

“Assassinate the f—-n (N-word) and his monkey children,” he prodded, according to a screen grab obtained by YourBlackWorld.com.

An angry backlash quickly ensued, and Manson, 48, toned down the vile rhetoric Monday while defending his right to spew hate. “Once you have taken the position that anyone should be imprisoned for careless emotionally driven remarks that had no real substance, you deserve what your government has become,” he wrote.

Manson—who says he decided to run for office because of high taxes and rising lease rates at his trailer park—was a frequent poster on Ron Paul’s website and Facebook page, but his posts have now been removed.
