Tom Head and a New American Civil War

You know, I post a lot about my problems with the Republican party.  I do.  But I completely understand that there are terrible people and deceptive people on both sides of the aisle on Capitol Hill.  But let’s face it; you generally do NOT hear this sort of polemic from democrats.  You just don’t.

This guy wants to start a war.

Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, plunged far out into the periphery of anti-President Barack Obama conspiracy theories on Monday, pushing a particularly outrageous one as justification for a tax increase in the county.

Head told FOX34 that Lubbock’s law enforcement needed extra tax dollars in order to be prepared for a full-scale uprising, which he said could be a byproduct of Obama’s reelection. According to Head, the president is seeking to sign a variety of United Nations treaties that will effectively take precedent over domestic law.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”

via Tom Head, Texas Judge: Obama Reelection Could Lead To ‘Civil War,’ I’m Ready To ‘Take Up Arms’.

This person is intimating that he wants to rise up and remove the POTUS (which I’m pretty sure is treason if not conspiracy and making terroristic threats).  Now, during the Bush years, I did state that I wanted to see Bush impeached for his crimes against humanity.  Impeached is not the same thing as calling for someone to ‘get rid of this guy’.

And here is the thing, my Republican friends (and I have them), this is what you are standing behind when you vote in November.  This is the party line.  Republican politicians and those in charge don’t want to win an election, they want to take over the United States.  You think you support small government and personal freedom, but these are the same people who want to take away your freedom.  In fact, I don’t think you even realize what is at stake here.

This judge wants to go to war.  He wants to fight Americans.  He wants to fight on our very soil.  And he is not alone.  Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have already said as much.  And they are brainwashing you into believing that there is a government takeover happening.  But the facts are stubborn things–Obama is the smallest government spender since Eisenhower.  Yes, that’s right.  He isn’t a tax and spend liberal.  He’s actually responsible.

So get your facts straight.  Denounce war-mongering bureaucrats like these.  Do it now.  You don’t have to stop being Republican, or stop being conservative, but denounce those who spread lies and fear and hatred.

  1. Tom Head’s comments indicate how powerless he is…. had he any inclination to go to war, the last thing he’d do is broadcast his intentions. Unconsciously he knows this. So he’s just ranting in order to get a reaction, i.e. his sole power is the ‘Gasp!” response he gets from those, who even briefly, take him seriously. He’s the drunk at the bar threatening to knock you out, whist there are two bouncers between the both of you.

    Ignore him and there will nothing left of him. Better yet, laugh at the twat and watch him rant even louder.

  2. I like Jesse Ventura’s idea–get rid of all political parties though that is easier said than done. i think what is also treasonous was Boehner’s public statement that the republican party would do everything it could to make Obama a one term president.

    It implies that the republicans woul dnot do the job they were elected to perform but also interfere in legitimate government business for their own gain.

  3. I’m no fan of the Republicans, but I’d think that rising up and removing the Big Chief is a very American thing to do.

    Otherwise you’d still be singing “God Save The Queen” like the rest of us.
