Tom Tancredo: Impeach Obama or We’ll Start ‘Armed Rebellion’
Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo appeared on American Family Association’s ‘Today’s Issues’ with Tim Wildmon to warn that if we don’t impeach President Obama the right will start an “armed rebellion.”
Tancredo told Wildmon that beyond impeachment there is little “short of armed rebellion that everybody constantly – you know, a lot of people, I guess I should say, think to themselves is either coming or a potential – and God knows that’s not something we want to see.”
He went on to say that Obama’s actions have been “so egregious and so dangerous to the Republic that unless we do something like impeachment, which is certainly deserved, that we will essentially have lost this thing no matter what happens in the next election.”
While Tancredo said an armed rebellion “isn’t something we want to see,” last month he wrote a column for ultra-right-wing site WorldNetDaily basically calling for a militia to take down Obama if he is not impeached.
“We are being asked to look away and pretend the Constitution is now being shredded… We must make the case for impeachment to demonstrate that no man is above the law, not even the first black president,” Tancredo wrote. “If we do not make that case, we are betraying the Constitution and degrading our children’s inheritance… Are we really that afraid to challenge presumptuous dictatorial behavior? If so, then the war is already lost and we should all stock our ammunition shelves and join a militia.”
