    Newsmax columnist: Military coup "to resolve the 'Obama problem' " is not "unrealistic" | Media Matters for America

    From John L. Perry's September 29 Newsmax column:

    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the "Obama problem." Don't dismiss it as unrealistic.

    America isn't the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn't mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it.

    [...]

    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.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, "We can always worry about that later."

    In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

    When are you guys just going to accept the fact that you got your ass kicked in the last election and don't get to call the shots anymore?

    "We the people" have spoken and we no longer want people like you involved in our government

    This kind of talk rallies all those anti-intellectuals in the republican party. Dumb as stumps, but they eat it up.

    Actually, though the orginal story surely belongs in the "Conspiracy Zone", the fact that NewsMax actually printed this crap, and the OP is pointing it out makes it a "Media" thread.

    As in media criticism.

    I think this would be rather frightening, if it didn't come from a media outlet with so little credibility as "NewsMax".

    The site is nothing but a web version of the National Enquirer, but biased for right-wing readers.

    Not that it'll have any effect at all on a yellow journalism outlet like "NewsMax", but here is my letter to the editor:

    Uh, in our Republic that happens, or there is the oppurtunity for that to happen, every 4 years. It would seem like deposing Obama would be a worse fucking assult on the Constitution and its legitimacy than anything Obama could do. Republicans need to realize that they fucked America over enough over the past 8+ years and alienated themselves from moderates, swing voters, or those who are usually otherwise undecided come election time.
