US sex offender threatens to ‘hang Obama from tree with swastika and burning cross on WH lawn’Washington, Jan. 14 : The US Secret Service has arrested a registered sex offender in Michigan after he allegedly made a racist death threat against President Barack Obama by hanging from a tree outside the White House with a burning cross and a swastika on the lawn.

James Allen Myers, 37, called the offices of the National Geographic and the Federal Communications Commission and threatened the president. He also threatened to blow up the FCC.

He was outraged by the `filthy sex and perversion' that was allowed on television, according to federal charges filed against him on Thursday.

According to the Daily Mail, he allegedly called Obama a racial slur and said that he would hang the president from a tree outside the White House with a burning cross and a swastika on the lawn.

Myers did not leave his name on the voice mail recording, but the Secret Service used the FCC's caller ID to trace the phone calls, made on December 9 and 10 from his home outside Detroit, the Detroit News reported.

Myers, who was convicted in 2001 of criminal sexual conduct, admitted to making the phone calls and said he was enraged over the sexual content there was on television.

A new book, In the President''s Secret Service, has revealed that Obama has received about 30 death threats a day since he assumed office in January 2009, the report added. (ANI)
