INCITEMENT RHETORIC GETS EVEN MORE DANGEROUS…. Just eight months into a Democratic administration, Newsmax is running a piece speculating about a military overthrow of the elected leadership of the United States government. Seriously.
Newsmax columnist John L. Perry encourages his right-wing readers not to “dismiss” the notion of an American military coup as “unrealistic.”
America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont [sic]. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it….
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.
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.
In April, a common Republican talking point was the notion that Democrats were creating some kind of “banana republic.” In retrospect, the irony is rich.
There is an unmistakable trend in right-wing rhetoric in the direction of extremism and violence. It’s not at all healthy, and it’s a sign of conservative contingents gone stark raving mad.
