Following months of right-wing hate, fear mongering, and blatant words of racism by Republican Senators, Congressmen, and the leaders of the Republican Party, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, one must wonder what they would think of next.
How about overthrowing the Presidency?
That’s precisely what one loon has suggested in an article for Newsmax, that bastion of right wing respectability based here in Florida.
John L. Perry writes in Newsmax:
There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.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.
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.
Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.”
In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.
The words above are of a domestic terrorist and a traitor to our nation.

Is this what our country is coming to? Are we going to allow this hate to continue? We have Republican Congressmen demanding secession, spreading lies and hate about health care reform, and now this?
Where’s the outrage?
To make matters worse, guess what entity is a sponsor of Newsmax?
How about the Republican Party?
I have to quote my friend Steve Benen here:
