Fox News Commentator Calls for Military Coup Against Obama
Fox News commentator and right-wing author Erik Rush, who has been on a crusade to have President Barack Obama impeached since the former Illinois Senator won the 2008 election, has called on right-wing members of the Armed Forces to set in motion a military coup to remove the president from office since Congress has been unable to do so.
In a column on conspiracy site World Net Daily, the frequent Sean Hannity guest wrote “Were there members of Congress with the courage to do so, ample evidence and leverage exists to quietly demand the resignation of this president and his Cabinet.”
Since no one in Congress has stepped up to run with this “ample evidence and leverage,” Rush added that “There is the possibility that certain military personnel might lend their support to an effort by Congress to remove the president through methods other than impeachment.”
Rush noted that “In truth, there is nothing wrong with the government per se. It is like unto a vintage automobile with an intoxicated driver at the wheel. It’s just a matter of getting the keys away.”
Rush recently came under fire for saying the “synthetic symbolism” around Nelson Mandela’s death was overblown. Rush wrote that Mandela “you know, didn’t do much.” He added “Apartheid went away, great. There are South African blacks who have told friends of mine they wish it was back because the country was safer, if you can believe that.”
He has previously made some inflammatory remarks about hate crimes, saying these reports are being stirred up by the government to create “racial resentment and disenfranchise whites.” He added that “Should some high profile, highly unpleasant race-related incident occur in the near future, it wouldn’t be the first time such a thing happened at a juncture that proved to be advantageous to the administration.”
Also, if you Google Erik Rush, this comes up pretty high:
