Yeah, Let Me Tell You How Your “Civil War” Would End, Buddy
Some dopey, irresponsible Texas judge is rah-rahing the idea of a “Civil War” if Obama wins.
Lubbock County Judge Tom Head told KJTV-TV on Monday that a 1.7 cent tax increase for the next fiscal year is necessary to prepare for the “worst case scenario: civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe.”
“We’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking – we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy,” Head said. “What’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? [Obama’s] going to send in U.N. troops. I don‘t want ’em in Lubbock County. OK. So I‘m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ’you’re not coming in here.’
“And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said ‘you gonna back me’ he said, ‘yeah, I‘ll back you’. Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there….I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me,” he said.
Let me tell you how that “Civil War” would end. The FBI or alternately, if there were enough people involved, the US military would roll in. Either the “revolutionaries” would surrender with minimal loss of life or they’d be shot. Meanwhile, everyone from the New York Times, to Rush Limbaugh, to Right Wing News would be applauding the tanks rolling in. This is America. We don’t have dictators who decide to stay on after they lose elections or sore losers who throw coups because their side lost. If anybody gets a contrary idea, they’ll get tuned up until they change their minds. That’s how we roll.
Perhaps it’s time to give up the Birtherism folks, and focus simply on voting Barack H. Obama out of office.
