Media Matters put out this today regarding the virulent right wing press (blogs, print and broadcast) who are all talking about revolution and military coups against the President and the Government. Here’s a representative sample of what has them so upset…
Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?
Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.
Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for “fundamental change” toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible. [Newsmax.com, 9/29/09]
Let’s move past the fact that the majority of the brass is Democratic or democratic leaning… by an overwhelming number, they are almost uniform in their support for civilian control of the military and it’s Constitutional basis. Needless to say, this is stupid wishful thinking. The comedy here is that these very same generals would lead the fight against domestic terrorists bent on the overthrow of the US. Here’s another sampling, this time from Michael Savage…
Let me talk specifically. The white male in particular — the one without connections, the one without money — has nothing to lose, and you haven’t seen him yet. You haven’t seen him explode in this country, and he’s still a majority, by the way. In case you don’t know it. He is still the majority. No one speaks for him. Everyone craps on him. People use him for cannon fodder. And he has no voice whatsoever. He has nobody speaking for him.
So he goes to these extreme fighting events. Take a look at them, and you’ll see what the white male is capable of. And you’re going to find out that if you keep pushing this country around, you’ll find out that there’s an ugly side to the white male that has been suppressed for probably 30 years right now, but it really has never gone away.[Talk Radio Network’s The Savage Nation, 8/21/09]
Actually, no. Aside from the occasional maladjusted buttplug with a gun, an itchy trigger finger and a grudge, none of these folks are going to do a damn thing. Because they’re too busy watching the next UFC match on SPIKE. Oh, sure, much like their leaders Beck and Savage (the human equivalent of the action of a dog vomiting, with apologies to Barfly), they’ll moan and whine, but they won’t do a fucking thing. Because they’re stupid, lazy and cowardly. Just like their media leaders. These people are whiners… about their jobs, their lives and their tiny dicks. They’re so soft they wouldn’t have a chance in a real totalitarian state. They’d give up any amount of freedom for a lifetime porn channel subscription, a supply of Pepsi and some fried chicken.
Growing up in East Texas, when someone got mouthy they usually got punched. I’m offering, on behalf of the country, to do that to these windbags. Same with you Chuck Norris, though I’m sure your training and experience will probably kick my ass… but I promise you, it’ll be fight you’ll never forget and I will make you bleed. I promise, Chuck Norris, that at the very least I’ll beat enough sense into that you’ll stop talking about being ‘the President of Texas’.
Seriously, come on bitches. You’re so goddamn tough, come on to town and let’s throw down.
