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.

Well, actually reading about Joy’s show on sites such as Hot Air and Newsbusters, since like 99.5 percent of America I’ve never actually watched it (except for possibly a few minutes while trapped in an airport). But still, the good work and ingratiating tone of this breakthrough in television programming is getting out, even through osmosis
Watching The Baader Meinhof Complexâ€™s titular Teutonic terrorist gang in action on the small screen, I was struck by dÃ©jÃ vu of it all. A small but growing band of radicals with a penchant for street theater, wishing to smash capitalism and destroy the system from within, led by a fanatical, brawling leader, with at least one articulate well-bred intellectual within the inner circle. Starting off by blowing up small, bourgeois shops. Eventually hooking up with sympathetic allies in the Middle East. Then killing American soldiers. And when finally cornered, going out in a Gotterdammerung of mass suicide rather than face punishment from their captors. Thatâ€™s never happened in Germany before
