Alan Keyes Encouraging Violence if Obama is Not Ousted

It is no secret Alan Keyes thinks Obama is a tyrant who is intent on waging war with ISIS so he can somehow become a dictator here in the States. Yet today, Keyes upped the ante on his rhetoric considerably when he called for violence to get the President out of the White House.

In a WND editorial, Keyes called for the House of Representatives to act just like the Founding Fathers and impeach Obama “to substantiate the morally reasonable basis for their stand in defense of liberty.”

He added that the act of impeachment, “allows and requires them to justify, before God and the decent opinion of humankind, why they are conscientiously determined to stand even despite the vicissitudes of war, rather than submit to tyranny.”

If the Senate was not willing to stand up and do their patriotic duty supporting the House’s efforts to oust the President, though, Keyes, said that patriotic Americans had only one choice – follow Thomas Jefferson’s advice to ‘let them take arms.’

“We realize that, under certain circumstances, the particular provisions for impeaching and removing the president and vice president may end up being the prelude for armed conflict,” Keyes wrote. “This may occur if and when a sufficient minority in the U.S. Senate stubbornly shields the perpetrators of executive abuses, even when, to a large majority of the people, their abuse have become insufferable.”

In other words, using a lot of big words in an attempt to sound as patriotic and legalistic as possible, Keyes is telling people that if the Senate won’t support Obama’s impeachment, there should be a violent revolt.

In case you think such extreme anti-Obama rhetoric sounds familiar, it is because we have heard such fighting words before. Earlier this month, Fox News contributor Thomas McInerney also said that violence and even a military coup may be required to get Obama out and stressed he was obligated  to defend the country against “enemies foreign and, I repeat, domestic,” and then made it clear that Obama should be considered a treasonous leader who is “aiding and abetting the enemy.”
