They tell you to vote. They tell you that matters, that democracy will win out in the United States of America, and that it is the only way to achieve progress. I understand, we would all like for the world to be perfect, and for political differences to be argued like the statesmen of old, instead of bloody, violent revolution. Some people won’t stand for that. You see, they talk about the market place of ideas, of freedom, of human rights, but they’re the biggest hypocrites on earth. They won’t allow anything other than their Christian fascist idea of America, not even if it is slightly nudged a tiny bit left by neo-liberals. For all their rhetoric about freedom, they only care about the freedom they tell you that you can have. Of course, that’s contradictory, but their not the best at realizing their own cognitive dissonance. To the point:
People for the American Way have reported that a GOP group has called for an armed revolution should Obama get reelected in November. Not, let’s regroup and fight another day in the voting booth, no, an armed revolution to overthrow the United States Government. Ironically these crazy conservatives are the same one who supposedly worship the US constitution. Here, I’ll let these fascists speak for themselves:
The newsletter by the way is the “Constitutional Conservatives” from Stanardsville, Virgina. In a column called “Whitehouse Watchdog”, editor Ponch McPhee (the hell kind of name is that anyway? Ponch?) states the following:
“We have before us a challenge to remove an ideologue unlike anything world history has ever witnessed or recognized.
An individual who has come to power within a Nation which yields it’s strength over the entire world.
An elected leader who shuns biblical praise, handicaps economic ability, disrespects the honor of earned military might.
In the coming days and weeks ~ we the people must come to grasp as a common force, our very soul’s, that our future as a sovereign nation is indeed at risk.
If every single individual that you know, would contact 25 other individuals ~ we can make a difference that will be heard across the Commonwealth and in Washington.
The ultimate task for the people is to remain vigilant and aware ~ that the government, their government is out of control, and this moment, this opportunity, must not be forsaken, must not escape us, for we shall not have any coarse (SIC) but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November ~ This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.”
He cries bitter tears because the nation is not bowing down far enough to his personal interpretation of the bible, his moronic economic references, and high conservative platitudes topped with an icing of ridiculously outrageous hyperbole. He ends the idiotic rant by calling for an armed revolution to overthrow the government should Obama win again. Now, as the faithful readers of my humble blog will know, I am no fan of Obama, nor am I voting for him in November. However, I think the GOP consistently overplays its hand. It thinks it represents, and speaks for every American. If they start an armed revolution, they just might find out how true that’s not. You want an armed revolution in the US? To make it even more right wing? Give it a shot, I’ll sit back and laugh while you plunge the US into bloody conflict and division it may never recover from. There’ll be plenty of leftists who want it too, but I don’t think they realize that. That’s not surprising since these Christofascist morons can’t see beyond the ends of their collective individualist noses, let alone foresee what would happen if a violent civil war broke out in the country.
