After their plot to overthrow the president before Thanksgiving failed miserably, right wing extremists are now claiming that God will help them overthrow Obama.
After Larry Klayman’s plot to mobilize millions in front of the White House in order to overthrow Obama became an epic fail by drawing dozens, the hatemonger declared victory and pulled out the big guns.
Neither yours truly nor other members of our ever-growing coalition will be deterred by these actions of the far left, no more than other revolutionaries in past U.S. history were. Indeed, our Founding Fathers – Washington, Franklin, Adams, Jefferson and others – were attacked similarly not just by King George III and his British crown, but by colonial Tories. And, while I do not equate myself to Jesus Christ or Moses, so too were these true revolutionaries, one of which is the Son of God and the other a messenger and agent. They were called every name in the book in unsuccessful attempts to destroy them, and I am not talking about the Bible.
We the People will not be deterred in our revolution to free the nation from the corrupt establishment class that has driven the country into the ground, of which Obama sits atop as the current president, no matter how we are smeared and threatened and no matter how the left and their allies in the media and elsewhere try to destroy us all.
So we must act alone, with the support of our Creator. As it declares in the Declaration of Independence, which we read to the crowd Tuesday, “A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of free people. … And for support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
What makes extremists like Larry Klayman different from the Founding Fathers is that Barack Obama isn’t a king. Obama has been twice elected president by a majority of the voters in this country. He isn’t a monarch, or a tyrant. He’s your president. If you don’t like it, deal with it.
The right has gotten seriously desperate when they are counting on God to overthrow the president. The arrogance of the assumption that God is on their side is undercut by the results of the last two presidential elections. Judging from 2008 and 2012, God is either a Democrat or non-partisan. Either way, God is most definitely not on the side of people like Larry Klayman.
However, if the right can claim God is floating above with a tea bag on his or her head, why can’t the left claim the endorsement of the divine as well?
God apparently thought that a kid named Barack Obama should be president. God gave that president the inspiration to reform the health insurance system so that more people could have access to affordable healthcare. Over the last few years, God has been very helpful to the Democratic Party.
Maybe God has nothing to with it, and politics is politics.
A thought that these extremists will never entertain is that God is not on their side. Even worse than God not being on their side, God may be an Obamabot.
God is never going to overthrow President Obama, and Klayman’s antics demonstrate that the Founding Fathers were right. Religion and politics don’t mix.
