Newsmax: ‘Obama Problem’ Calls for ‘Military Coup’

September 30, 2009

(ChattahBox)—A Newsmax writer named, John L. Perry known for his unhinged and race-baiting right-wing pronouncements that President Obama is leading the country into “malignant Marxism,” has now taken his dangerous rhetoric to new and treasonous levels, by saying that the President is “inviting” a military coup of his administration.

In Perry’s article published on Tuesday by Newsmax entitled, “Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention,” the author declares, there is a “…possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.”’

Although Perry, touted on the site, as a “prize-winning newspaper editor, has been peddling his particular brand of extreme right-wing rubbish for Newsmax, since 1999, along with such intellectual “heavyweights,” as Dick Morris and John Stossel, even sedition and treason proved to be too much for Newsmax, as Perry’s article was quietly removed from the site without comment. His article calling for a military coup as a solution to “Obama’s radical ideal” remains on various conservative blogs.

Perry in his article, refers to the “Obama problem,” as the basis for “military intervention.” The phrase “Obama problem” hearkens back to the racist notion of a “Negro problem” and even of the anti-Semitic “Jewish problem” that led to the Holocaust.

In Perry’s worldview, the “Obama problem” is “Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for ‘fundamental change’ toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America.” Perry believes Obama’s radicalism calls for drastic action. “A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible,” wrote Perry.

President Obama came into office just eight months ago and was handed a mess by the Bush administration, consisting of the collapse of our financial system, a record deficit, two wars with no clear mission or exit strategies and a record of torture and violations of the rule of law and Geneva Conventions.

And since the Republicans lost in an election that swept Barack Obama, our first Black president, into office with a record majority, they have become unhinged and have opposed Obama with the fiery language of Socialism and Marxism and have even compared him to Adolf Hitler.

Where is all of this hate and vitriol coming from? Is it all based on racism? Is it a combination of racism and the inability of the Republican Party to deal with being ousted from power?

Perry envisions a “bloodless coup” where President Obama would be retained as a figurehead, but he would be replaced with real “military-trained” leaders:

“Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a “family intervention,” with some form of limited, shared responsibility?”

“Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation.”

“Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.”

Perry believes President Obama is just asking for military intervention, because of his radical Marxist policies:

“Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don’t shrug and say, “We can always worry about that later.'”

Perry plays coy in asserting that he is not advocating a military coup, but he is just reporting on “what may be afoot”

“Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.”

“America isn’t the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn’t mean it wont.”

Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes”

“Officers swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to “obey the orders of the president of the United States.”

“Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.”

“They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.”

To the extent that sedition “may be afoot;” the de facto leader of the Republican Party, hate talk radio host, Rush Limbaugh suggested that many people in American want to stage a coup against President Obama, like the recent military coup in Honduras.

Limbaugh: So we’ve got hell breaking loose in Honduras. You know what we learned about Honduras? We learned the Obama administration tried to stop the coup. Now what was — the coup was what many of you wish would happen here, without the military.

Then Limbaugh falsely described President Obama as a man who dishonors military men and women:

“This is Barack Obama, who led from the United States Senate his party into doing everything he could to ensure the defeat of the U.S. military. … This party was doing everything it could to impugn and dishonor the military.”

As noted by Crooks and Liars:

This thread of commentary clearly is pushing toward a single thought — to push people in the armed forces into seeing Obama as a usurper and traitor, just like the Honduran president, and toward the idea that a similar military-based removal of him from office might be justified.

It’s worth remembering that Rush Limbaugh’s daily hours of hate and fear-mongering are broadcast on Armed Services Radio.

    I am sooo tired of people calling anyone who dislikes Obama a racist. The reason why conservatives don’t like him is because he IS a Marxist. Conservatives like the free market economy and a smaller Federal government. Marxists don’t. It’s that simple. Conservatives have learned how to successfully play the game. Marxists want to change the rules because they think they aren’t fair.
