Republicans have become obsessed not with simply impeaching or imprisoning President Obama, but with killing him. And they are quite open about their desires. We just saw how a pair of former generals have dishonored their uniforms by saying Obama must be forcibly removed from office and how a Christian militia group claimed that Jesus and the Second Amendment gives them the right to shoot Obama.
Because they have no actual justification for Obama’s removal (and eventual execution) they must fabricate heinous misdeeds for which to punish him – like attacking America with an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that would result in “the deaths of ninety percent of the population of the United States of America.”
This story is the brainchild of Jim Garrow and Erik Rush.
Yes, Jim Garrow and Erik Rush say Obama should be stood against wall and shot – for something that exists only in their own twisted imaginations.
Jim Garrow has typically strong conservative bona fides, being not only a contributor to Alex Jones’ InfoWars but an accused child trafficker. (In the conservative mind this translates to former Nobel Peace Prize nominee and “US clandestine operative.”)
Those who watch Fox News will remember Rush appearing on Hannity and Colmes. He also writes for World Net Daily and Canada Free Press. Coming from a man who has said that “All Muslims should die for the Boston Marathon bombing” and that “The Obama administration will bring about the Apocalypse” (because that’s how communists like Obama roll), the charges of planning a nuclear attack on America are perhaps not all that surprising.
Appearing together on streaming news radio show Full Contact with Erik Rush on November 25, they explained how the Iran deal was not an attempt to distract Americans from Obamacare but from an aborted EMP attack.
On November 26, Rush followed this up with a post on his website reiterating the claim on the basis that “Jim Garrow says so.”
For this entirely imaginary misdeed, Obama should be “either put up against a wall and shot or hung” and that “whether it would be legal or lawful to do it would be answered after the bullets were fired.”
Listen to these traitors courtesy of Right Wing Watch:
Garrow: This call for the removal of the president is highly appropriate; in fact it is appropriate given what the alternative would be. If in fact this man is doing the things that he is being reported to be doing, he needs to be removed, he needs to be in fact tried for treason and of course the finality of that is a man gets either put up against a wall and shot or hung. Treason is not to be stood for — ever — and that’s what we have right now in the White House. Paul [Vallely] isn’t talking about the nuclear side of it but I know they are letting me do that and take bullets.
Rush: Aside from the fact that as I mentioned before you came one, Obama remains the consummate BS artist and actor. Despite all of that, I’m sure that he knows what the alternative is should he fail, should we succeed, should these things come out and be widely known and if he were to be removed I’m sure that he knows that the penalties for such actions that he has taken do fall within those unpleasant realms of execution and all of that unpleasant stuff. I think it is very noteworthy that General Vallely has come out and said that impeachment is not the way to go, he’s talking about making the President’s position so untenable that those in Congress right up to the Speaker and the Senate Minority Leader and all of those folks, action has to be taken and making things essentially not work, they won’t be able to get anything done for all of the political upheaval. He is talking about peaceful demonstrations.
Garrow: He’s also talking about the removal of Mr. Obama and to remove him has all sorts of ramifications and implications. How do you remove him? Frankly, we have sheriffs in the country who by law have the right to arrest people. They’re the guys, if someone was going to go in and arrest the president, it would be probably a sheriff along with military to back him up because you still got the Secret Service, you still got people who are there to protect the President, and they have to be contended with. Whether it would be legal or lawful to do it would be answered after the bullets were fired.
Rush concluded his November 26 post by telling us that “Garrow also advised the listening audience of measures that they could take to shield their electronics from an EMP burst.” My question is, if 90 percent of us are dead, is there any reason to ensure that our electronic survive?
You know, it’s bad enough conservatives want to murder our president, but they want to kill him for bullshit reasons, for things Obama has done only in their imaginations.
And as with most claims they make, conservatives just don’t think these things through. The trouble is, the people influenced by them don’t think things through either.
Which brings me to my summation of these events: if America is going to survive, it’s going to be up to liberals and progressives to make it happen, because today’s conservatives have completely opted out, not only out of the democratic process, but out of reality itself.
