This morning brought news of a poll posted to Facebook that call for members of the social networking site to answer the question, “Should Obama be killed?”
A user created the poll using a Facebook application on Sunday, and it was brought to wider attention earlier this morning. The optional responses pointed to the ongoing health care reform debate that is being widely discussed nationwide.
The site responded to the attention by disabling the application used to create the online poll. RAW STORY contacted Barry Schnitt, director of policy communications for Facebook, and he had this to say, “We’re following up [with] the developer to ensure the offending content has been removed and that they have better procedures in place going forward to monitor their user-generated content.”
We featured the original story on the Current.com homepage, and not surprisingly our community was pretty disgusted by the mere concept. Even more interesting is the results:
As of noon Monday, 90 percent of respondents had said “no.” Just over five percent said yes, 2.6 percent said maybe, and 1.9 percent said “if he cuts my health care.”
That even 5% of the respondents said “yes” is pretty surprising, and it prompted wayseeker to add:
“Could be another symptom of a cancer growing within our society perpetuated by the radical element of the conservative movement or it could be just a stupid childish prank. Let’s hope it’s the latter.”
