Huffington Post Publishes Call for American Coup

by Sean Hackbarth

A Leftist whom I’ve never heard of posted a letter to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Peter Pace asking him to military arrest President Bush and relieve him of his Commander-in-Chief duties. In other words he wants a military coup. By the way he defends himself in the comments this post isn’t a Swiftian joke. That ups the stakes from mere impeachment. If things get really, really bad someone over at HuffPo will call for NORAD to launch nukes on American cities, and they’ll mean it too.

Can I question Martin Lewis’ patriotism? He may have been born in the U.K.–which explains his lack of understanding of the U.S. constitution–but he’s lived here for ages and has been successful doing that.

[...] General Pace, You Can Save the US – by Arresting Bush for “Conduct Unbecoming” (naturally, this has the righty blogosphere talking…mainly because it’s probably the most bone-headed blog article to come out of the left in…well, EVER. This is what passes for serious thought on the left…disturbing, isn’t it?) Bookmark to: Sphere: Related Content [...]


[...] In my post I thought about adding a line wondering if Lewis was joking. The thought of advocating a military coup seemed too over-the-top even for a Bush hater. What got me to delete the line was Lewis defending the idea in the post’s comments. His defense was too sincere. Bruce McQuain quoted quite a few of Lewis’ replies. He too looked for brilliant bits of satire but couldn’t find them. [...]


[...] There are serious differences in how to battle the Islamist threat or even acknowledging whether such an existential threat exists. I think I’ve been good and only tossed the accusation in the most grievous circumstances. When it comes to war opponents I try to assume they want what’s best for America. I wish and their ilk would do the same towards war defenders. Save and Share: These icons link to social bookmarking sites where readers can share and discover new web pages. [...]
