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:

    Ignorance knows no bounds.

  • Mountain Man

    And replace him with a fine upstanding member of the Republican Party? Where are they going to find one of them?

  • Cindi Hammer Petrillo

    Whenever I ask a conservative friend to specifically tell me why Obama should be impeached or why they think he’s a bad president, they cannot. They like to hear themselves spout this kind of garbage but have nothing to back it up! Sadly guys like Rush can be dangerous, inciting brainless people to follow what he says…

    • Sue Lane

      I agree. I have asked some republicans in my family questions and a good comeback from them would be, well, Obama is gay and cheating on his wife with men or Michelle is fat. You would think that would be coming out of someone’s mouth that is uneducated but it wasn’t. It just comes out of the mouth of a bigot that watches Fox News.

      Rush, Beck, and that Ann woman should be investigated and if they are found to be a threat to the President, they should be brought up on charges.

  • Sean Ryan

    I hear there is a $5000.00 Dollar Bounty on Erik Rush’s Head! Aim True! He needs a bullet in his head! Sooner than later. These people are causing great harm to this Country and must be eliminated at all costs!

    • redape

      I believe that he’s a blowhard, and that no radio or TV station should encourage his treasonous and anti-Constitutional rantings, but he’s frankly not worth the bullet.

    • Rory

      I don’t think that will work hollow brain and no heart. Just shoot him in the ass cause he full of [email protected]#!.

  • nidur

    I never realized how many crazy people there are in the world.

  • thomasbone63

    This has nothing to do with freedom of speech. This is a threat to the United States and the Secret Service, FBI, should investigate this ignorant asshole. Chances are, charges can be brought against this asshole.
