Romney, speak up against terrorist lynching images!

This petition had 14 supporters

Lynching of African-Americans was one of the most horrible and unacceptable practices in our nation's recent history. It is vital that Terry Jones be condemned for using a lynching as a political message, in particular by Republican leaders.

By the nature of his office, every citizen has the Constitutional right to harshly criticize President Obama -- but not to threaten his life. Perhaps more importantly, Jones' action is an attack on the African-American population, who faced the terrorism of widespread lynchings in living memory.

Governor Romney and other Republican leaders must make clear this image is unacceptable in U.S. political discourse.
