Updated: Radical Right Wing Columnist Calls for Military Coup on Barack Obama

Miscellaneous
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2009/9/30 7:00:00 (1686 reads)

Update, 9/30/09: Newsmax has retracted the article and removed it from their website.

Newsmax columnist John Perry writes in his article Obama Risks a Domestic Military ‘Intervention’:

Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

In my book, this is not just offensive and morally wrong, but it is sedition, plain and simple.


I support free speech rights, even for those with whom I disagree, but you don't go yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater, and you don't go calling for a military coup of your democratically elected President.

Protest all you want. Argue. Debate. Convince. Insult. Belittle. All in the right time and place, these are your rights. But you NEVER, EVER, EVER call for an overthrow by threat of force. In our Republic, the ballot rules - not the bullet.

I don't want to hear your whining about how unfair you think it was that your guy didn't win, or that you didn't have anyone to vote for. I don't want to hear your hysterics about "he wants to DESTROY America!". If you believe in our constitution and our system of government; and if you believe in our Republic, then let me tell you little whiny bitches what you need to do, and I'll tell you this from my own personal experience and anguish dealing with that sorry sumbitch y'all elected because you "wanted to drink a beer with him".

First, vote. If you didn't vote, then shut your damn trap. You obviously didn't give a shit enough about your country to take a few minutes out of your hectic schedule listening to right-wing clown radio, so why should anyone care what you say?

Second, write letters and make phone calls to your Congressman and Senators. You don't have to insert teabags though, it just makes you look like a rube. Here's another hint. You may want to actually look up FACTS and SOURCES. You may want to attempt proper spelling and grammar.

Third, if you think your President has done something wrong, then you speak up, and you ask for articles of Impeachment to be drawn up and voted on. If you can't get that done, then by all means let me cry you a river. Our last President had a CIA operative outed, was criminally negligent in ignoring warnings about al Qaeda, and invaded a completely different damned country that had nothing to do with al Qaeda.

Lastly, if you don't get what you want, you may actually have to be a REAL patriot and do some damned work:
- Come up with your own ideas
- Convince other people besides your teabagger group that your ideas have merit. This means you may have to talk to people who don't believe like you do.
- Find a candidate who shares your views.
- Support that candidate with contributions.
- Get your ass out and campaign for that candidate.
- When they're elected, you stand behind them and push them to do what you wanted them to do.
- You do your part as an American to BE part of the solution instead of sitting around waiting on the magical "they" to take care of it for you.


Sound like a lot of work? Damned right, it's a lot of work. It's a sacrifice that a patriot will make. I am one of many who did all of that, and I have the scars to prove it. My President - Our President, is doing what the majority of Americans sent him to Washington to do.

I'll be damned if you lazy-ass whiny titty babies are going to circumvent the constitution because you think it's more convenient. You want to wrap yourself in the flag and call yourself an American? Put on your big girl panties and deal with the fact that America rejected your party and its failed ideas. You'll have another chance in 2012, and you'd better bring your A-game, because this birther/death panel/islamophobe/racist/conspiracy theory/fear mongering bullshit may get you the attention you crave, but it won't win the minds of people who vote.

Perry's column has already been forwarded to the FBI by one of our readers, and although the prosecution standards for criminal sedition are high, I hope that he will be investigated to see whether he has any contact with any General officers who may be in any position to attempt such treason.

Because of the nature of this subject, we will not be allowing any anonymous comments in response. Be careful what you say, because you will own it, my friends.
